    If he must go out on the wet grass, you can try polo wraps on him while he's out. I believe there is a photosensitive aspect to scratches as well as the wet grass. Wrap nice and low on the ankle.

    OP, I have not read through this entire thread, but do you by any chance have livestock as neighbors? I have mine at home. My pastures are quite large, and when I ride in the arena, I can tell that...

    I am old now and ride older horses, but I am enjoying the 2'6" hunter divisions. There is really no such thing as a bad distance. If you keep a nice canter, and a 12' stride, your horse can handle...
