    Thanks for all the responses!, It seems like they get "mixed reviews".

    My preference in full seat breeches is that they be supple and flexible and not "fix me in place", with a tight inflexible...
  3. Horze Ariela Women's full seat Breeches - has anyone ridden in these?

    I just saw these advertised and was curious as to what people thought of them (there were no reviews available.)

    I HATE fullseats that bind and are tight in the crotch area (I like my FITS, but...

    Yikes, gumtree! :eek:

    I've had good (if limited) experiences with them, mostly consulting on which digestive supplement they recommended - of course they recommend their own ;), but it did wind up...

    Thank you, Fred :) I appreciate the good thoughts – yes – it appears that we are both "on the mend"! A big relief.

    So, went out last Friday night to check on her (still recovering from my intestinal infection and a 10 day course of the strong antibiotics they put me on - which caused me to be nauseated 24/7), and...

    Thanks, leheath :)

    Yes, that would be my next thought; will ask the vet when she comes out (I gave her office the "full history")

    Appreciate the healing vibes! Happy Thanksgiving to you :)

    Hey leheath, thanks for sharing your story :)

    She has been back from the trainer's since mid-August (we had weaned her off the omeprazole when she came home); when she started showing symptoms...

    I hear you about the "physically a picture of health" thing!

    What were your mare's symptoms?

    I already re-scheduled the bodyworker (she was supposed to come this morning), but since *I* have...

    Hi Zu Zu!! How nice to hear from you, I've been wondering how you're doing (well, I hope!) :)

    Thanks so much for the jingles, Ella and I both appreciate them.

    LOL, I think I'll hang onto her...

    Another thought: could ovarian cysts cause these behaviors?

    Thanks for weighing in, Kendra :) I hope I covered everything in my response above?, other than I should think that she is in anestrous at this point.

    My mare has never peed the "little squirts"...

    To answer some of these:

    No, she was the same (physically) at the trainer's, just very herd-bound because of her stalling and T/O arrangement; this did improve by the end of her stay there.

    I'm...

    So, Snap test is negative...

    (Thank, stacie - that's actually where Patricia replenished the Equishure - I can find out whether they carry the Rite Trac.)

    Hmm, good to know. Of course I have let my USEF Membership lapse since I haven't been competing in 5-6 years (waiting for this "baby" to grow up!)

    Thanks for asking, tazycat!

    Ugh :(

    I really hope this doesn't last three more days! Not sure if I can take it. Starting to feel a bit better after taking a Robaxin; I tend to spasm a lot, my muscles are tight and very prone...

    Good, thanks! The barn vet just lost her mother so is out of town until Friday – I'm going to have her check my mare when she gets back into town.

    I'm thinking this may be the necessary next step - but the "treatment" - Sulcralfate (is this what you used?) is tough: 3-4 times a day. BM can't do that, my mare is out 18-24 hours a day.

    I live...
