    My friend's older gelding used to do this. I think it is a sign of dominance for him. He'll walk around and just use a slight glare to push another horse off a hay pile. He'll take a bite, then...

    I just saw a posting about a Sky Classic horse, so I thought I'd find out about my new guy's pedigree.

    Thanks everyone! My horse is in Monkton, MD. I will talk to my farrier when I get back from this work trip, but if she doesn't seem to know what she's doing, I'm VERY happy to have suggestions for...

    Thank you all, you've given me a lot of good information and a lot to read up on. My farrier has done the horse twice in the 4 weeks I've had him, and I'm not sure how much she should be able to fix...

    Thank you ohmissbrittany, I'll check out your posts. I did actually pull the horse's shoes when I got him. His feet were really overgrown and his heels were crushed. My farrier was attempting to...

    Thank you both for responding, I appreciate it.

    I'm not sure I understand all if it though. JB, you said:

    Negative palmar angle question

    Does anyone have a minute to explain what I'm looking at on these Xrays? This is my new OTTB that I got about 4 weeks ago. He has nice, hard little hooves with good concavity. I tried him...

    I preordered the Soloshot 3 also, I'm very excited for it!
    It sounds to me like the 3 will be easier than the Pixio and MUCH less expensive.
    Can't wait for it to ship!
    I got the 25.

    I have a long femur and a relatively shorter calf. I ordered a custom saddle with a "low forward" flap, where the forward part is lower, which is necessary for my leg ratios. The saddle is the...

    Thanks a lot! I'll just hope that the wavy hairs go away with his summer coat. At least there is a possibility!

    Wavy hairs from bandages

    My new OTTB has wavy hairs on the fronts of his hind ankles from bandaging while he was in training.

    Do these ever go away, or are the hair follicles permanently damaged?

    I'm an amateur and I ride horses because I enjoy it. If I ever reach a point with a horse where I don't enjoy it, then I'd get rid of the horse.

    If it were my horse, I'd try the medical...

    I'm about 5'10" and I ended up with a 19" saddle with a lower forward flap and I love it! I thought a 19 sounded enormous, but not really, it fits me pretty well.

    I had some issues with the...

    For me, a low level ammy, the question is: what is the question? If the jump being close to water makes the horse lose focus, then is the current jump actually asking two questions?

    For example,...

    I agree with the low forward posted by others. Just looking at geometry it is one of the only way for long femur riders to have a balanced seat, unless they jack their stirrups up IMO.

    I think it depends.
    My 17h TB is completely barefoot. We jump, run around cross country, etc. When we go on rocky trails I put hoof boots on him.
