    Horse shopping etiquette help

    I have been been in touch with a seller over the last 4 weeks regarding a horse for sale. Communication has been a bit slow but I was ready to fly out and see the horse.

    Now it's 2 days before I...

    That's awesome, thank you. Due to a change in circumstances, it looks like I may have quite a bit more to spend than originally thought. It would be great to find something local (NA) but I've...

    IME there are different types of trainers... the two most prevalent being either the technical coach or the results-driven coach. Sounds like you need someone technical who will explain to you the...

    Fernhill Sporthorses?

    I'm looking to take a trip in the fall to check out a few different farms for Irish horses, including the Goresbridge sale.

    I emailed Fernhill last month with some questions about their farm,...

    I had mine for 2 years. Quick, sharp pain going in and like a strong, dull ache for a week after. Definitely call your doctor for meds if you're hurting. :)

    Once you get used to it, it's like it...

    26 is definitely still too young to make the call! :) You still have so many years of youth and freedom ahead.

    Horses are supposed to be fun. By allowing yourself to get emotional over the reactions of others, you're allowing them to take away something that is personally yours to enjoy.

    Thanks for the tips everyone. Looks like riding the Training mare that is available to me is the best bet until I know where I'll be at with the kid/fitness/etc. :)

    True. I guess I don't know. I do have access to a Training level SF mare that I could play around with and show until I figure stuff out. She can be a bit picky out on XC but has the scope for...

    Good questions. $10-$12k is what I currently have. I would like something that has done some off-property work over fences at bare bones minimum, but something that has BTDT is ideal. I literally...
  11. Budgeting for new horse, how much do I need?

    I am going to be looking for a new horse next year. I am thinking a prelim horse would probably be enough, at least for 2-3 seasons (as I have been out of competition for at least 4-5 years). It...

    Thanks for all the encouragement. I definitely think I'm starting to skirt the line between bored/frustrated and flat out depressed. I will do my best to talk to my doctor. Seems like between taking...

    Pregnant and very depressed

    Since I found out I was pregnant, I have been really, really depressed. Everyone is ecstatic (hubby/family/friends) but since I can't ride I feel like there's no point to anything anymore. It was my...

    At this point the vet(s) have no clue... it just seems like high suspensory could fit. My current vet does not want to do any more exploratory diagnostics, she feels her friend who does the nuclear...

    Too bad. I was hoping it could help me rule out a soft tissue/ligament problem. :( the next step is a bone scan but that isn't in the budget right now.

    Hmmm.... okay. So is it "unlikely" that a horse who improves on Previcox has a muscular or tendon/ligament problem?

    Horse in question has been diagnosed with a muscle sprain high right....
  18. Previcox for soft tissue or arthritis?

    If a horse who is swapping at the canter is better with Previcox, would that mean it's definitely arthritis?

    Or is it possible a torn ligament could also be masked by Previcox?

    There are vests, there are air vests and there are combo vests; not all created equal. :)

    Feel better soon, and do a bit of research to see which type of vest may suit you best. A vest may not...

    That's exactly what I'm worried about!

    Paying a *minimum* of $1k-ish just to get an idea of what's happening... what if they find nothing? What structures are up there that could be "mildly"...
  21. Nuclear scintigraphy: what could they find?

    My mare has been off lately. Short-strided behind and messy/trouble picking up left lead. Right lead is okay. Recently started pinning ears/swish tail while applying leg under saddle. "Sort of" works...

    Well she is a student first of all, from New York City and yet manages to ride. Combine all those things together and right off the bat you know that the author is from a privileged background. I...

    I definitely need a few days to cool off and think about it. I botched it being tactless (ugh!) by letting our disagreements about my horse's care lead into the discussion of me moving him. They were...
  24. I botched my 30 days notice, now what?

    I recently had a (minor) disagreement with new BO/coach about my horse's NQR. He felt one way, I felt another. Long story short, this (in addition to other things like distance from house, care not...
