    Thanks so much for all the input everyone! I'll keep up with the vet's prescribed rehab plan for a few more weeks, and if I don't see any marked improvement by week 6, I'll have her out again. It the...

    Recovery after SI injection

    Did you see a dramatic improvement with your horse after SI injections? How long did it take until your horse went back to "normal"?

    After two years of head scratching over my mare's stiffness and...

    Thanks for reminding me of this! I think I put a little too much importance on the "long and low" advice; my panic brain kicked in and I immediately went to IF I DO NOT WORK MARE LONG AND LOW THEN...
  4. How to achieve "long and low" with a horse that doesn’t really understand contact?

    I'm creeping over from Western land; be nice! :D

    I have a young, Western-started mare who, due to training holes and long spans of layup, has never gotten to the point in her training where she’s...

    Wow, I didn't expect so many responses to this list!

    Adult Onset ADD?

    I'm only half-joking when I ask: Is adult-onset ADD a real thing?

    Or is it more likely that I'm just your average over-worked adult with lots on their plate?

    My brain is a constant buzz of...

    It only took two years of guesswork and wild goose chases, but I think we finally have a diagnosis: SI pain.

    I got a second opinion (ok, more like a 7th opinion) from a vet who seems to be a far...

    I stand the same way. At rest, my toes point out; when my heels are together my feet look like a "V". My entire riding career, trainers have yelled at me to get my toes pointed forward....

    No advice, but I'm in the same boat!

    Since my mare was started, she's gone to town grinding her teeth once she gets even a little stressed (like, when I have the audacity to put my leg on her)....

    After undergrad at a private university and grad school at a public university, I had about $35k in debt for an education that cost roughly $200k.

    Debt is currently $22k, and I make 38k a year. I...

  12. Making THAT decision, when the horse is relatively healthy(ish)

    *sigh*

    I know this is a decision that only I can make, so I'm not sure what I'm looking for on the board. A head pat? Tough love? Sympathetic ears?

    Anyways, I have a TB gelding who's in his...

    Is there any wisdom in going directly to a bone scan?

    I feel a little ridiculous bringing out the big guns when it could be as simple as soreness from a bad trim job, but is it better to rule out...

    Do you mind sharing the name of that vet? You can PM if you'd like.

    Parrotnutz, when I say her issues aren't degenerative, I mean they're not progressing. She's maintaining instead of obviously...

    Vet update:

    Finally got a vet out to see my mare (have you ever tried scheduling a non-emergency vet visit during Fair season? Impossible.), and the diagnosis was...inconclusive.

    The first...

    Again, thanks everyone for your ideas! It's so helpful to go to the vet and farrier armed with theories.

    I sent pics to my vet and a farrier that was highly recommended. Vet hasn't responded but...

    Front hooves turning black?

    Like the title says, my horse's feet are turning black. I don't know how long she's had the coloration; for some reason, this is the first it's registered.

    She's a 6-year-old Paint, gets fronts...

    Broken heart pity party

    Sometimes I just want to wallow in a little self pity, and misery loves company, so hey, join the fun!

  23. Everything good, until under saddle | Update: the answer is SI pain!

    I have a six-year-old mare who is lovely, kind, and athletic…just not under saddle. In the pasture she runs and bucks and plays and does incredible sliding stops and rollbacks. On the lunge...
