    Pensacola has very limited h/j scene.

    OP, if you have questions about SW Florida, pm me. I grew up there and have family there.

    In the last 8 months I went from one horse to three. I felt like you did.

    It will help your riding and horsemanship for sure, and you will love each or them for their qualities. Mine are...

    Daisy is home! She's been home for about a week, and considering she had never left the ranch she was born on, I was super impressed with how she handled it. She walked right off my (step up)...

    If the plan is to do lower levels, if he has a good brain he'll resell. There are always pony clubbers or lower level adult amateurs looking for these types of horses. Not likely going to be a...

    Why didn't I think of that? It comes off so much better than "please, anyone but X!" LOL

    If that response could have been any simpler or more obvious, it would have bitten me in the face. Thanks...

    I think expecting the other boarder/help to read the OPs mind for feeding when she may show up to ride far more unreasonable than a once-every-6-weeks farrier request.

    Which, by the way, I would...
  7. Etiquette on requesting, or NOT requesting, a clinician?

    Clinic is coming up and has multiple clinicians. There is a place on the form where you can request a particular clinician, though it may or may not be accommodated.

    If there are several...

    I would imagine that while that's the case, she's also realizing that the "friend" isn't who she thought so now that image she held of her former friend is ruined. I've definitely grieved a bit when...

    I think so many people are delusional about their needs and/or abilities. *Of course* they think they need a horse capable of 4'6, when in reality they're likely to spend the next 5 years doing 3'...

    Found one that works indoors now.. uses radar technology that talks to a watch you wear, vs GPS like the soloshot.

    I had never heard of the soloshot... awesome!

    What are these drones/gps set ups that you speak of?

    Good for you OP -- you knew what the expectations were of housing and the RA's being available, utilitized resources available, and stood up for yourself :) I'm glad it all worked out in the end,...

    ... no, we haven't all been the PITA boarder at one point.

    It's great the OP is taking the advice gracefully. Doesn't change that it would likely absolutely suck to be the "help" (other...

    Horse definitely feels more off after working a bit yesterday. I hacked around but it's just to hard and heartbreaking to actually work him with the intent of him getting worse. Next appointment...

    I had a fluoroscopy done on my other horse last year, but now I'm a 6 hour haul from a fluoroscope! I did ask... my options in my region are x ray or ultrasound. Or haul 6 hours to MRI or...

    Total aside here...

    He's not a show hunter, but I've got a Morgan/Canadian cross who is, to put it mildly, an easy keeper. He's had the winter off and he also carries weight on his sides over his...

    Me as well, and these policies are often only good up to x # of boarders. Very scary when x+1 comes in and you realize they'd likely void the whole damn policy!

    I have a county blanket "system" (waterproof outer, detachable neck, liner) and it has a tail strap. It stays in place beautifully, love it!
  19. Vet can't determine where lameness is, horse sounder after flexions

    I have a horse that's been NQR since the fall. He blew an abscess in December (right hind) and we'd hoped that was it. Apparently not.

    (previous thread here:...

    Just to clarify, I didn't ask about fitness work or trot sets, I asked how long to go from the pasture to competing again.

    And asterix, I was just admiring the photos of your horses in your signature... woweee! Gorgeous!

    I really appreciate all the feedback, and I'm glad to hear my timeline is reasonable with some breathing room. I worry because my horse is so willing and knows his job pretty thoroughly, I wouldn't...

    That essentially looks like a plastic tub with a hole cut in the top.. I imagine you could buy one at Walmart for $15 or so, cut the hole and even pad the edge of the hole with something so it...

    I have a bench with storage underneath, and have cut a hole for the cat to access in the side. Keeps the litter box out of sight, inaccessible to the dogs and keeps litter mostly contained in the...

    my last order with dover had them transpose my email address from an online order wrong, so I didn't receive confirmation. I'd call them to double check!
