    Oh no! That's such terrible news!! He's doing a wonderful job despite everything and I don't blame him one bit for nodding off under all that stress. It literally made my morning. I hope he is...

    I love listening to Axel's comments! Really helps understand what judges are looking for! However the poor guy just fell asleep during a test and I was dying laughing! I give him credit for making...

    I've had the best luck with my girth-sensitive mare, who is mutton withered and EVERY saddle slips forward, with a mohair endurance style girth. It's wide in the center for support and weight...

    My two best friends have both just gone through this. Interestingly enough they had to use completely opposite techniques to get past it.

    One has spent 30+ years in the saddle, very...

    6 months of the year (summer) lucky me lives 1 minute down the road. In the winter it's an hour and a half and I get to the barn 3 times a week. 4 on a good week.

    I just trim the outside tufts of hair from my mare's ears and clean up the jawline. Never touch the whiskers or above the eyes. She has a white muzzle and chin and I don't think anyone would really...

    Pony rider developing mediums here as well! LOL She's a 13.3hh draft cross who is built like a hippo. I NEVER thought she would have a decent medium or extended but low and behold we managed it! ...

    Great advice above and make sure you're giving with your outside rein enough to allow the bend. Years ago I had a terrible time bending my mare left for ages and finally got into a lesson with a...

    I've only seen it once and they didn't get rung out. Horse started up OK but right after coming down centerline the slight head bobbing lame started. Every step. I said to my friend, who noticed...

    The Kerrits Crossover breeches are the most comfy I have ever worn. So comfy I can barely tell I'm wearing pants...much less breeches! Seriously feel like I'm a streaker when I walk around in them! ...

    If it was my horse I would first have a vet/chiro x-ray and evaluate the back. Sounds soooo similar to two horses I know who ended up having kissing spine. They spent so much time and money on...

    Cavalettis were really helpful on an OTTB I had with a similar issue. I started on the lunge (no rider) with them spaced normally so she could just take them at ease. Slowly shortened them up until...

    This school of thought has worked wonders for my pony mare. She's not baroque in breed but she is in movement and build. Smooth leg mover with no natural suspension but an ability to sit and...

    Looks like that's the price they have. Crazy! I would have thought a LOT more!

    I feel for you OP! My pony doesn't stick her tongue out but she chews on bits like a Labrador puppy! In the crossties, on a loose rein, on the contact. Chomping and sucking on it with this stoned,...

    Yes she being a draft needs the high fat/low starch. She doesn't tie up but she has ZERO energy without it. The difference in her stamina did a 180 within a week of being on s high fat/low starch...

    Thanks for the replies! She's out 24/7 with other horses so getting alfalfa flakes would be pricey because I would have to supply them for everyone. I'll give the alfalfa pellets another go, then...

    Here is the link to SmartPak who has the list of ingredients and quantities. No lysine or aminos that I can find. https://www.smartpakequine.com/mobile/ps/10881#Ingredients

    I can keep trying to...
  20. Add Protein or Amino Acids to this diet?

    My draft pony mare does best on a low starch/high fat diet. She has recently been pulled off of soy due to itching and has been much better without it. Trying to find a new diet is tricky! She's a...

    I wish I could but it's right smack dab in the busiest season of work :-( I will be doing the partner shows though!

    That's good to know you can give feedback on a judge. I went to a show this summer where we were all left scratching our heads at the judging. It was a 2 day rated show. I didn't ride the first...

    I would love to scribe or volunteer but as someone who works weekends just getting off for a few shows a season is already extremely hard. Not to mention I live 3.5 hours from the nearest shows. ...

    I'm in love with my EquineLux Bufferlux after trying most of the others. It's shimmable, shock-absorbing and non-slip. My mare goes beautifully in it. I loved my Ecogold but I also needed non-slip...

    I loved mine! We called it the "Velcro Saddle" because it was so secure. Loved the synthetic (wipe off, very grippy). Still my favorite jumping saddle but sadly didn't fit my new mare :-(
