    I think you should find a boarding situation that is closer to you (if possible), and then ride him as much or as little as you want. You'll be able to check on him more frequently, and perhaps you...

    The place where I drop the blankets off for cleaning and repair has me pay in advance for what I want done. (And I have to drop the blankets off in person so there's no misunderstanding).

    Seriously, I would have the vet look at him. The vet can evaluate the horse's lameness at all gaits on various surfaces, and then do some radiographs to see what's going on (if the vet feels that...

    The other possibility is that he is not "sound" when he's not trotting on hard ground, it's just that he finds it easier to compensate for whatever pain and/or stiffness he has.

    If you're wondering whether you have any legal recourse, you need to speak to an attorney. Some states do have stricter laws than others about horse sales, and sometimes just getting an attorney...

    Your daughter also might benefit from some private lessons, at least for a month or two, to help her get her confidence back. I also agree that she needs an instructor who actually wants to teach her.

    One thing that you could do fairly easily is to check to see if the horse's back is sore. Run your thumbnail or the cap of a pen with moderate pressure along either side of the back (about an inch or...

    My dog (a Border Terrier) loves the yak milk chews. He's a very strong chewer and I like that these are basically made from milk, and they don't splinter. You do have to watch when they get chewed...

    I have never had the laser used on a mouth cut or sore, but just recently my vet used a laser on persistent scratches (dew poisoning) on one of my horse's rear heel bulbs.

    In general I agree that you should give yourself a break and really decide what you want to get from riding now, and whether this horse can deliver that.

    I had a somewhat similar issue at my previous barn, although it involved not a goat but geese (plural).
