    Honestly, if you're a more timid amateur type rider, get a horse that's suitable for you now. Sure, fancy is nice, but it does you no good if you aren't able/comfortable riding it. What are your...

    Sounds like SS is going to learn his lesson the hard and expensive way since mommy dearest doesn't want to break his heart with the reality of the situation.

    I hope I'm not right, but I don't...

    I use ultrashield currently, and it works for the duration of rides, mostly. It's *something* at least. As far as availability of the other stuff, I haven't seen it on our shelves around here. I'm...

    What a novel idea, I'll just get right on building a barn ;) honestly even if I had a barn (which is rare around here), I'd have to shut it up tight to keep the bugs out.

    BF is very horse supportive. Unfortunately horse soundness is questionable this year (in all my horses, just my luck!), though I've still taken the trailer and gone sans horse to an event or two...

    ... a year ago (tomorrow!) my BF and I relocated/transferred to our tiny rural town. It was something we wanted though were hoping for the next town over so we could be significantly closer to the...

    I live in a very bug heavy area. One horse is very fussy about it but doesn't break out too badly, one only gets a few sores, but my last horse gets awful bites on his face, ears, chest, armpits and...

    OP -- there is no shame, though plenty of pain, in acknowledging you have done what you can for this horse.

    That being said, if I were in your shoes, I might be inclined to pull shoes and turn...

    Did the best with what I had: poor BF has already been enlisted to help me rehab and tack walk my barely trained pony who has been on confinement, and today was hot so I could only ask him to go back...

    One of my lame/Os gets to start tack walking -- I think I'll do that tomorrow. She's barely broke and had limited saddle time before injury but was always good under saddle (silly on the ground...

    Update: took horse to see a different vet (the third who has seen him in person, unaffiliated with the first practice) who also does body work/chiro/acupuncture.

    She went to the hip right away,...

    I can honestly say this sport is for chickens too!

    I am so scared of jumping but have a horse who lends me his confidence over fences. I will never go beyond Entry/Novice, and that's ok.

    As a...

    I'm sorry you're in such a crappy position :(

    Perhaps for many it's less of a place to share and discuss and more about proclaiming their identity. Afterall, they are posting on "their" page/timeline. Maybe seems different than posting in a...

    Only been here a year. For the first three months I rode both horses 3-5x a week each, based on their needs. Rode one almost every day, often rode two.

    I had also dated numerous guys in the past who just didn't get it. None of those relationships ever got serious enough for the horses to be a problem, but the I imagine...

    I did that. Moved here last July, and went ok for 2-3 months. Then one started to get more and more herdbound. I had them in separate fields, and took each one away daily for riding grooming. ...

    Holy cow, how is this even legal? Seems like an abuse of power to me, not to mention damaging to the kids! I don't see how this accomplishes making the kids have or want a relationship with the...

    First, get a GOOD clarifying shampoo. You could also do apple cider vinegar rinses weekly or, as I've heard, use cocacola. This will take all the chlorine/chemical sludge off your hair. Then a...
