    Ditto Pennylane. Not sure how much a "full ration" is to you, but I've never had a horse turn down 1-2 scoops of senior feed. I also feed three times a day when I have a skinny horse. Usually a...

    Here is a chart of NSC of different hays and feeds, but I'd take the hay values with a grain of salt because hay can vary widely.

    The facility where I lesson requires helmets. I'm also a member of a trail riding group, and to participate in organized rides, helmets are required. So - I wear a helmet.

    I won't knock someone with a passion for racing who is willing to jump right in even though I'm sure there are easier ways for that person to make a living. Being an elite athlete does give a person...

    I don't think that is the real tongue of the trailer, I think it's an extender used to move trailers around easily with another piece of equipment.

    I have a similar trailer, but it is longer and...

    The best thing for the fatties is a muzzle and turnout. They need to move as well as restrict intake.

    I agree with Crown Royal, as a rule of thumb, avoid daytime grazing. Lots of good info on...

    If your ground work does not translate into something useful under saddle, not sure why a person would spend all that time doing the ground work. As time goes on, owners should be doing less ground...

    I see no problem, other than your run in shed getting very poopy. You could also hang hay bags or nets, which would keep it a little cleaner.

    Ditto the thyroid meds and lots of exercise. Lots of good info on safergrass.org and from Melyni at Foxden Equine.

    What Truecolors said. There are trainers who can work with this type of horse, and if they can't fix it, you'll have to consider other options. Good luck, it's a tough situation to be in, and bless...

    Sounds like you really need to be doing more ground work and desensitizing with this horse. And when you ride the horse on the buckle, you are "untraining" your horse because you are not giving him...

    Named ours after a paint color - Shady Willow Farm. Then had to go buy a willow tree.

    You might want to think about avoiding any soy based feed if your horse has metabolic issues. Maybe Linpro as a base? It's only fed at 4 oz/day. It's good that she is off grass, but you want to...

    My horses are at home, so I have to do barn chores as well as ride. If I wasn't married, I would put on clean barn clothes before I went to bed. Saves having to get dressed in the morning.

    "I open the indoor gate and let each mare walk down the aisle about 5-10 years to their stalls."

    I'd pin my ears too if it took that long to get to the stall! Just kidding, I know it was a typo. ...

    "Clever trainers don't push animals to the point where they feel they have to explode and fight back. With an animal as big as a horse provoking a fight is a really bad idea. Any hack trainers who go...

    What shape were they when you bought them? I love them, and mine had 3-4 established trunks each and had the lower branches pruned, so they already looked like trees. Plus, mine were about 10 ft...

    Congrats! Happy your horse was well behaved. One thing to be aware of, though, is that when you allow your horse to walk along uninhibited on a loose rein for a while, the horse tends to "take...
