    As far as topicals, this is the only product that cleared up a very stubborn case of thrush for my horse last year:...

    I had one with a check ligament injury that came back 100% and never had a problem. The horse was probably about 7 years old (this was a long time ago) and I couldn't say how serious the tear was. I...

    I had a similar experience with one of my aged horses. He was fine and then five hours later, he was in surgery. He survived the surgery, but had a horrible recovery period. Six weeks later, he had...

    It's the greatest, isn't it? Hunting is definitely the most fun I've had on a horse, and I am quite sure my horses would say it's their favorite activity. My retired show hunter, who is older than...
  5. Thanks everyone. I would love to have my horse go...

    Thanks everyone. I would love to have my horse go bootless (my other horse does), and if I can't find workable boots I will, but for now I'm going to try the EcoGold X-country boots. I like that I...

    Thank you kkindley. The Ecogold XC boots look promising. I'm quite tempted.

    Tangledweb, I am hunting a young horse over difficult terrain. His splints are quite large. I want to prevent impact to...
  7. Boots (horse, that is) for Hunting

    I have a young horse who unfortunately is already sporting rather large splints on both front legs. I've been hunting him in "breathable" Woof Boots (the five-strap variety) and unfortunately this...

    I have also been priced out. I spent several years showing on the circuit (WEF, VT, etc), but between the economy taking a serious bite out of my disposable income and the ever-rising costs of...

    Flavored horse aspirin is cheap and easy to administer. Ditto with AniHist. Ace tabs or paste are also useful for those who cannot perform IM or IV injections.

    James and Shawn, For what it's worth, I have many of your photos of my horses displayed in my home. I treasure them all. I haven't read the entire thread so I'm not sure whether a representative from...

    You know, there is the letter of the rule, and then there is the spirit of the rule. As an amateur, I would certainly not object to a dressage rider who teaches rudimentary up-down lessons showing as...

    Ditto. I only did that commute for a little more than a year and I nearly went insane. I was taking the R5 from Paoli to Center City, and not only was the train expensive, but rarely on time and the...

    I agree, those hocks may not be as flexible as they were previously. And I would say yes, absolutely, fused hocks are likely to affect resale. As another poster mentioned, even with inexpensive or...

    Well, ONE horse, plus the general reputation the breed has for being less than reliable (which that horse certainly bore out). If I ever feel a gaping hole in my horse searches because I avoid Traks,...

    Well Burgie, a crop would not have helped you with that one. At all. I've had horses for more than 20 years and brought along my share of youngsters. That one was a rogue. Period. Certainly there...

    I had a Trak hunter that has since made me avoid them like the plague. He was beautiful and for the most part, dependable to ride. He was honest over fences and would trail ride alone. A beautiful...

    I did the low adult and regular adult jumpers until I had to retire my jumper due to injury. Having gotten a taste of the classics at Level 4, I would have loved to move up to the a/o jumpers (even...
  18. Poll: I agree with others who said it depends on which...

    I agree with others who said it depends on which joint and what is being injected. Coffin joints, for example, don't "hold" as long after an injection as, say, hocks. So for a horse that's 10+ or has...

    I used Super Joint Solution in the past and thought it was a nice product. I definitely saw a difference in some of the horses who received it, especially a couple of oldsters. I stopped using it...

    I replaced the tree in my much-abused Devoucoux Biarritz and they did the panels for me at the same time at no additional charge. I think the total cost was in the $750 range (this was a few years...

    I've always thought the mileage rule seemed like an antitrust violation, but never had occasion to look closely at the matter. If nothing else, my feeling is that it protects mediocre horse shows and...

    I think that depends on the pro. Someone who is just starting out may do all that (though even then, many seem to feel they should not have to do more than ride and teach, at least that's the trend...

    I agree 100 percent with Go Fish, who posted the above. Not having a "desk job" does not excuse the behavior IMO. If you are running a business, you behave professionally. Period. I do understand...

    I'm just going to say it: I find the plethora of George Morris threads to be an absolute snoozefest. Does that count?

    I know a lot of people love their Rambo Duos, but personally I can't stand the hassle of the liner being attached to the shell. I find it to be a huge PITA. I much prefer using stable blankets or...
