    CC - I'm right there with you! We're heading into week 2 of showing up north of the border this week. Last year at this show we were in the midst of rainy, cold, wet system. This year the temps spent...

    Didn't you start a thread a while back asking if omeprazole could cause colic? I will say again, as I said there, that the answer is, "usually not, but in some horses yes, it can."

    I will also...

    Boy do I feel your pain! My boy's leg blew up with a case of cellulitis on Friday and we're hauling to Canada on Tuesday morning for a couple of weeks of shows. Ugh!

    Same story, we caught it...

    I have 2 big dogs who live in the acre that's fenced around our house (all of the horse pastures are around the dogs/house). My malamute/shepherd/wolf thing has taken it upon himself to "escort" my...

    Yes :)

    If it's meant to be washed then it should have a tag that gives the instructions on how to wash it (which is a great reminder for me that YES, it's OKAY!). I don't have any Pikeur coats,...

    My 30R Olympias fit the same (sizewise) as my 28R TS Trophy Hunters. But the rise on the Olympias is higher than that of the TS.

    I wanted to add that I hear you on the five o'clock shadow thing!

    My helmet is navy, and it left a blue/black ring around my chin/throat. Looked like someone had tried to choke me! I had several...

    Perhaps it's freakish for your horse, and I have one that you could never short the heel even a millimeter without wrecking the balance of his foot. But on a relatively normal foot you can wrap the...

    Like ladyj, I stable in FEI barns and haven't ever seen a horse check or nightwatch walking around the barns - FEI security, yes. A guy sitting at the entrance of the show grounds (in addition to the...

    Call Samshield or the tack shop you bought it from. I had the same issue and the Samshield rep (through the tack shop) immediately got me a replacement. Apparently there was a defective lot or dye...

    I've heard it used to mean a couple of different things -

    1. taking off too much foot resulting in a lame horse (e.g. "my horse was "short shod" and we're now rehabbing") - obviously this is bad,...

    Well, your environment will play heavily into how well the arena works as well. Here in the PNW I would say that you would be hard pressed to put an "unfooted" (or perhaps the more important part of...

    My OTTB (now my GP horse) was owned by his trainer on the track. The guy started him late (he raced 10 times during his 5 year old year) because he was a slow grower and big (17h) and a bit out of...

    Like others have said, colic is a catch all term for abdominal pain. So technically it is colic even if you halt the progression of symptoms with banamine.

    Sounds similar to what my guy looked...

    I put one of my horses on 1/2 tube of omeprazole a day for a couple of weeks at a time when we go to shows. When we come home I cut out the omeprazole completely (last day at the show is his last...

    CC - I go on left side unless I'm using a pad with a monogram on the left, and then I pin it to the right side.

    Night Flight - so are your pins hooked over the saddle pad but under the number? Who would get stabbed if a safety pin opened up? I've always done my pins on top strictly because I would far rather...

    The tiny attached numbers are the best way to go (purely from a rider/owner's perspective)! 99% of the time I use the little number holders and attach them to my horses' bridles like here.

    But...

    I hate threads like these because *I* can't convince you by telling you what I've seen and experienced, though I often get sucked into trying ;). I agree with those above who say that it depends on...

    I agree with the flatwork suggestions - lots of lateral work and transitions and just general conditioning. I'm assuming that their aren't major conformation issues causing the drift, but regardless,...
