    Did she write a piece in Practical Horseman about her experience? I feel like I read something about an older woman as a working student for Denny, and being pretty impressed. This was years ago.

    I find it much more comfortable if I come in with a lot of collection. If my horse has a long stride or not enough power, we usually end up leaving long or throw ourselves over the fence. Think about...

    If she is sound, and feels comfortable when you ride her (and isn't sore the next day), I don't think you need to limit activity based on cellulitis. Movement is actually good for it. I would be more...

    Inflammation of any location will cause edema (fluid) because it leaks out of the vasculature. Inflammation of the bone is not the same as arthritis-- arthritis is inflammation of a joint. Osteitis...

    Yep.

    And a horse can have a serious lameness tomorrow that forever limits its usefulness. Or colic.

    If she restrained him in the way that is standard (which does place your face somewhat close to the dog's head), then I have to ask-- how would you have her restrain the dog? There is a reason that...

    I think he looks improved, but lameness is still present.

    I agree, setting the horse down would have huge implications. It would affect the "poor" riders as much as the "rich" riders, which is not the case for monetary fines. It would let catch-riders off...

    Yes. You hired the trainer. You put the horse into a position where it could receive the drug. Not really fair, but if you are going to place your horse in someone else's care, in the end you are the...

    I'm not saying you shouldn't use a low-cost spay/neuter clinic. I'm just trying to explain the cost difference. It would be like having an elective surgery in Mexico vs in the US. You'll probably be...

    The difference is that at a private practice you are going to have someone monitoring your pet throughout the procedure. This most likely includes blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm (ECG),...

    Didn't know he actually put his hands on the vet. That goes beyond just being an arrogant jerk.

    Maybe I missed it, but did you ever get a full workup? I'd at least get some lab work done, maybe an abdominal ultrasound +/- x-rays, and ask the vets what they think the most common cause for colic...

    Have you had any imaging done besides x-rays? How do you know it isn't a soft tissue issue?

    She is holding the reins, in addition to holding the baby. Still a dumb thing to do.

    I'd try lunging her with a bridle on and see if you get a similar response. Ideally with her head in the same position as when she is ridden. If you think the airway is probably the problem, I'd see...

    I agree- try Bravecto. Best thing, IMO, if you are having flea problems.

    And make sure you are treating the environment.

    I think, like anything, you need to evaluate the individual and go from there. There are some fantastic PCs with excellent instruction, and terrible PCs with scary riders. Many pony clubbers take...

    Yes, I'd be very concerned if my horse wasn't bearing weight on their heel. And I would not think the hocks were the primary cause.

    I work in a vet clinic. Personally, I've had good success with Seresto collars and think they are worth the cost for the time you get out of them, if your animal keeps collars on. Frequent swimming...

    Yes. I do wonder if his horses are able to scramble out of situations just because they are always so perfectly balanced. They can come up with a 5th leg not because they have to use it all the time,...

    I don't know if this is the cause, but I had a horse years ago that had similar symptoms (lameness and it was biting too) and I'm pretty sure the vet diagnosed it as rickety-horse syndrome, so I'm...
