    Honestly, I would probably wonder why all of a sudden I got a text from a boarder asking what kind of hay their horse was eating out of the blue. That's the kind of question a boarder usually asks...

    There is always some wastage with supplements. At least they are being fed! OP - the more years you board, the more you will learn that no place is perfect and you will always have to compromise on...

    My mare will.not.back.off.the.trailer. She has zero problems backing on the ground or under saddle, has excellent ground manners, and is a very confident non-herd bound horse. I'm not sure what...

    You could try to shim it in front with a shim pad like the Thinline shimmable or the Total Saddle Fit pad if you like the saddle and the tree is the right shape otherwise?

    Pleassseeeee bring back the Grand Prix Hampton II breeches in MORE colours. I love the waistband, fit and fabric of these breeches for my schooling breeches. Definitely the most comfortable...

    I would love to live in the universe where 15.2h ottb chestnut mares are worth 8k 3 weeks off the track. I can only imagine what that would do to the value of my 17.2h bay gelding with socks and a...

    County makes a saddle where you can adjust the flap to three different positions - from dressage style to jump style. I find the concept of these saddles really neat. They might be something that...

    I have no real interest left in showing anymore, even though I have 2 nice horses that are both fancy enough to show rated with. I much prefer riding at home, taking lessons or going to the odd...

    You don't ever shoe or trim horse's feet to make them match. That dishing going on with your horse's foot would concern me.

    A good farrier will always tell you that they trim the foot in...

    If he's moving around that well, then I would not pursue the boots.

    I also wouldn't pursue shoes and rim pads without x-rays first. If you intend to x-ray, then I definitely wouldn't nail on...

    I, too, have heard the neck is hard to x-ray. All the horses I know of that were found to have cervical arthritis were diagnosed via bone scan.

    I like Keratex for toughening the hoof walls and venice turpentine for toughening the soles.

    If he's that uncomfortable right now, I suppose it wouldn't kill him to stay in a hoof boot until you get x-rays and see what is really going on. It's not ideal to leave them on for long periods of...

    There isn't a boot you can use 24/7 unfortunately - they really can't be in boots longer than 8 to 12 hours. I am usually all for 24/7 turnout, but this guy might benefit from full day turnout in...

    Have you considered turning him out in hoof boots? They may assist him in being more comfortable while you wait for the hoof to grow back. Movement is good to stimulate the circulation required to...

    Based on those videos, I would not rush to inject this horse's coffin bone. I would work on the hoof angles, and setting the shoe a little further back with a shorter toe. I would also consider...

    If she's that well broke and can do the 3'6" well, you might be better to market her as a big eq horse. The rideability will be a major bonus to those riders. She may have too many buttons for your...

    If you don't like the British style saddles, why not look at Stubbens? Lots of demos in your price range on the Stubben NA site, lots of tree, seat and flap configurations and IMO, way better...

    I don't understand how changing the course will make any difference. Hunters are judged subjectively. A more intricate course doesn't change the standard they are being judged against. If...

    If one doesn't like the current state of hunters, there are plenty of other options for people who jump. Go to the jumper or eq rings, do a hunter derby, or even try eventing. The hunter rings are...
