    Yes, I am looking for recommendations.

    She's willing to pay for quality. In fact, she's considering sending the horse to a trainer a little further away because neither of us are aware of suitable options in the immediate area. I'm just...
  3. help me find the right hunter trainer/instructor-DE, MD, SEPA area

    I'm looking for an established hunter trainer to bring along a young TB, and to give lessons to an adult amateur re-rider while the horse gets some finishing. Preferred location would be somewhere...

    I think the only way to make helmets more...

    I think the only way to make helmets more mainstream or acceptible in western events would be for Charles Owen or Troxel to sponsor an upper level/well-known western rider. I do think that there is...
  5. I just saw that the Arabian Horse Celebration in...

    I just saw that the Arabian Horse Celebration in Kentucky was cancelled due to lack of entries. Numbers were also apparently low at the Arabian East Coast Championships in the beginning of August. ...
  6. Horse Show Numbers - How is attendance where you are?

    Locally there appears to be a stabilization, or possibly a "slight" uptick in the number of entries (I'm talking about the breed shows - AQHA, APHA, ApHC...no rated h/j or dressage in the immedaite...
  7. It does make sense, and that is pretty much the...

    It does make sense, and that is pretty much the consensus I'm getting from the others I know who show western. i was worried he may get "dull." Coming from an english background it seems like an...
  8. Another bit question, on the finished western pleasure horse

    For a horse who has a lot of show ring miles (western pleasure, horsemanship, trail), do you always stick with a curb type bit, or do you sometimes go back to a snaffle?

    I don't have much western...
  9. Soft/wet hooves and Keratex/Durasole hoof hardening redux

    Judging by the recent threads, I'm not the only one dealing with damp ground and hoof issues, so I was hoping we could dredge this back up.

    The TB with typical TB feet seems to seems to be...
  10. Delaware - Dbl. Reg. Pinto/Half-arab sound, sane, fit and FTGH

    (Ad says $1k, and he's worth it, but I'm listing him here for...
  11. Is it possible to have the flaps on a Passier cut...

    Is it possible to have the flaps on a Passier cut down? I have a GG, and I love it, but the flaps are too long. Maybe I should look into that for myself!!

    FWIW, Passiers are all I own now due to...
  12. Thanks for asking rcloisonne. Nothing really new...

    Thanks for asking rcloisonne. Nothing really new to report. She seems to be holding up to the extra weight from the pregnancy fine. No further deterioration, but the suspensories on both hinds are...
  13. She was getting 2lbs of Essential K daily total. ...

    She was getting 2lbs of Essential K daily total. I have since switched to Kalm Performer.

    I'd like to know more about iron and equines as well, as well as DSLD in general. I'm always interested...
  14. I sort of suspect that many who breed...

    I sort of suspect that many who breed arabian/warmbloods are breeding to keep for themselves. Or, are small-time breeders who don't have a website or large internet presence. Lots of turning over...
  15. If someone was in the market for an...

    If someone was in the market for an arabian/warmblood cross, where would they look? I've checked the usual suspects (warmbloods for sale, dreamhorse, equine, googled for breeders) but didn't find a...
  16. Do slaughter houses actually turn away horses...

    Do slaughter houses actually turn away horses (other than grays or paints with lots of white)? Honest question...I truly don't know.
  17. Yeah, I just don't see any good ending to this. ...

    Yeah, I just don't see any good ending to this. I'd vote for legal seizure and then culling of the herd, but I'm sure there would be at least some public outcry (save the horses!). And they'd have...
  18. Good point cowgirljenn. The "enforcer"...

    Good point cowgirljenn. The "enforcer" presumably would be the probation officer, so once off probation, the animal collecting could and would begin again.

    Lady E, I would never intervene...
  19. Is there any good way to handle a large herd seizure/hoarder issue?

    Recently on a local horse related facebook group, there was a post about a local farm (stock breed...I don't want to give identifying details) that supposedly has in the neighborhood of 100 horses,...

    What a timely thread! Thanks SAcres, I'll be checking this one for updates.

    I'm also thinking of dragging my 22yo TB out of retirement. I trashed my knee and had surgery back in November, and...
  21. Senior Equines...how old is your competitor?

    Just a fun and curious thread. I'd love to hear from anyone who has an aged horse as their dressage partner.

    (I consider aged to be 20 or over, but anything in the late teens on up, feel free to...

    OP, so sorry for your losses. :'(

    My oldest horse had a very bad reaction one year (we can only guess it was the rabies vaccine, hard to tell because all were given in neck that year). Since...
  23. With a quick learner and a reasonably good pro,...

    With a quick learner and a reasonably good pro, 15-20 rides sounds reasonable to me. If he's turned out 24/7 his fitness level won't be as low as you may think. You could also help the progress...
  24. Can't answer for NorCal but I'd want to know if...

    Can't answer for NorCal but I'd want to know if there was any tearing or abnormal scarring to the ligament, which the US would show. Xray obviously would show bone issues (spurs, arthritic changes,...

    I'd probably go ahead and have it ultrasounded (if you have a good vet with portable ultrasound, capable of relaibly reading the results...sad that I have to make that disclaimer). But, I'm probably...
