    I'm not sure I would feed something like Trimax to an easy keeper. I would have them on a balancer pellet matched to his forage....and then might consider something like RedCell or a vite boost...

    Sounds like basic 4 year old testing their limits. Most go through that stage...and I agree with backing off a bit. Also doesn't hurt to have the vet take a look. Also, don't be afraid to get off...

    If you want an excuse to travel....there are some great events overseas. Too late to get tickets for Badminton. But I can highly recommend going to Bughley this fall. It is a bit out in the...

    I really hope she and her connections are not reading social media and things like this BB. I personally never questioned her decision or actions. It is a decision that i've unfortunately had to...

    just heartbreaking. I'm glad she had an option of a retirement farm for him (before the extent of the injury was known) but it really sounds like she made the right choice.

    I feel so sorry for her. I don't blame her for not pulling up. I'm sure he didn't feel that off or she would have pulled up. And given the injury described, it wouldn't have mattered anyway. She...

    Live cover in Germany isn't very helpful for us North American breeders. I couldn't find anywhere that he had any frozen available to ship to NA.

    Cost really depends greatly on where you live. In the mid-Atlantic, it will run you close to 40,000 a year (board, costs, vet, training and competition) for 2* and up. It can run higher and you...

    That was such a bummer. She did everything she could. I would have killed him when he just stood there while she spoke to the judge. What a brat. Hopefully they make it back next year.
