    Baucher bits are good for low palate and short lips.

    Security camera might show you who the thief is but won't prevent the theft. :)

    Always lock your trailer! I hope they will find the trailer but I doubt it. :(

    @DownYounder : I was by no mean implying you used RB as a punishment. I was truly just agreeing with Merrygoround's post.

    Sorry if it wasn't clear! :)

    This is the worst and more than often, people use RB as a forceful punishment, destroying their horse's mouth, without understanding the real purpose/action of the RB. The same will then complain...

    Did you bothered reading the OP post where it says the age, breed, training level of both horse and rider and the horse's present physical condition? I guess not.

    Second level is an important one and despite what a lot of riders/trainers think, shouldn't be skipped/denigrated.



    The OP is below 60% at Second so I fail to see how she could school 3rd...

    I feed Purina Fat n Fiber (big chunks) and Trimax (Ultium in the US) to my PSSM mare.

    Ultium would be good for your mare actually.

    PSSM horses need fat. A lot of fat.

    And regular exercice.

    I'm sorry for you! What a nightmare.

    On the other hand, it might be for the better as a foal wasn't in your initial plan.

    That's not really the lesson you should get from the situation you've created.



    Good effort for trying but you created the drama.



    Why the need for secrecy and confidentiality then?

    It really depends.

    Always ask before! ;)

    Day care can go from mucking stalls/feeding/watering/night check to full care for both rider and horse by an assigned groom who gets everything done.

    Next time, be aware that people do talk to each other. Horse world is small. Your current BO and this other BO are probably acquaintance/friends.
