  1. The reason I can see for cutting off her clothes...

    The reason I can see for cutting off her clothes is if she is on a backboard for a suspected spinal injury AND they want to do a CT scan AND she is wearing something metal. At that point, there is no...

    The emergency personnel can't force you to go to the ER, but they may have been concerned for example that the rider was planning to drive home. If you're not safe to ride, you're not safe to drive...

    Footing can change, circles can change, and lame horses can cavort just fine thank you very much. :-)

    But here's my question. You said you saw lameness and rated it 5/10. To me that is a...

    What kind of doctor is the right kind of doctor to see for a soft tissue shoulder injury?

    There is a lot of action on Facebook - I think most of the horse community is connecting that way.

    Middle Ranch is evacuated as are many other barns in Little Tujunga Canyon, Kagel Canyon, Sand...

    It is hard to know what really happened here. OP does not say whether she personally witnessed the event. Agreed that the rider is not the best judge of whether she lost consciousness.

    Another vote for Riding Warehouse, especially for those of us in California. I usually get stuff next day and I always order enough for free shipping. :-)

    It doesn't even have to be a large white marking. I have a horse in my pasture with a conservative star, stripe, and snip with one blue eye and unimpaired vision.

    Don't know what your parameters are, but you could fence off a smaller area with some temporary electric so that stopping and eating is the sensible horsey choice.

    WEG at Lexington in 2010 was pretty amazing - it was great to have all the competitions there together.

    What I thought was really interesting about the hip surgery is that they've learned that the key to success in these cases is to get them up and out of bed - that elderly people who were bedridden...

    Oh, I know. I wasn't being critical, just lamenting.

    I think as long as the horse isn't in unmanaged pain, that Dr. Green can perform miracles. I saw a horse with a severed flexor tendon return to dressage, after UC Davis thought it would be best to...

    Sniff. I hope they can fix him.

    Part of me can't believe that there are still fractures like this that we can't fix. :(

    You might try a mullen mouth. I especially like the Duo or Nathe bits, but be warned that he may chew them... they're not forever purchases like a metal bit.
