    Definitely get the horse UTD on shoes, wait a week after he's shod, and come back to evaluate the slight lameness. If it's something you can nerve block during the PPE (pending vet thinks it's now...

    I have a chomper. It's just "him" he's always been like this. It got MUCH worse when he was leased out and almost ruined by being ridden too deep with no connection. He has a natural carriage, but...

    Like others have said: balance. Verticals for the rider seem less intimidating, but for horses, they are much harder to judge.

    I always seem to go back to Eskadrons. They...
