    After owning him for 3 months? No, no recourse. And there could be other things causing his behavior in his new home. Lack of turnout, saddle fit and maybe incorrect riding or pain.

    I wouldn't put too much faith into a comment made by a Pony Mom in another trainers barn...by somebody whose idea of management is probably signing the check every month.

    OK, probably confusing that with a similar policy offered by a feed thru worming product some years back.

    No, you go back and see what it missed in training and fix that. If you need more control on a young horse for jumping? You stop jumping and hit the flatwork. Most find Dressage lessons very helpful...

    Tough spot to be in. Depending on how your diagnostics go and the prognosis for future use abilty and continuing care, I'd be leaning towards considering a trade. I've seen many deal with years of...

    Where has your experience been? Ever worked with semi feral horses loose in a field? How do the vet and farrier get the halter on him?

    Slanderous would be spoken but it's misuse is quite consistent in posts defending this outfit. Its libelous if written. Unless it's true in which case it's niether.

    Does sound like the groom was his last caretaker at the very least. Shameful, this looks like he's been standing in muck/mud and nobody cleaned them for some time.
