    I had the same problem when I first had my ring installed. I used a Polaris and a similar drag. I was just going too fast. Try driving relatively slowly and change directions frequently. That should...

    FWIW, I had a 20-year-old maiden carry a foal with no issues. She had another for me after that, too. Other than keeping her on ReguMate, we didn't do anything special. Before deciding what route to...

    I thought they looked awfully similar! Thank you for that additional input, everyone. I'm going to go ahead and order the Samshield visor. My horse can be funny about movement above or behind him: if...

    Thank you for your reply! Do you feel like you get a good bit of shade from the visor? It's hard to choose a visor not being able to compare them in person. I've also been thinking about the Soless...

    Touchstone, did you try the visor on your OneK? I've been eyeing it thinking the same thing. I'd love to know whether it worked out for you.

    If it's an older schoolmaster who's going to be fun and safe, absolutely. I bought a late teens equitation schoolmaster for my husband. Cushings, a tendency toward anhidrosis, shivers, and mild...

    Get yourself a reliable vehicle. It doesn't seem realistic to rely on others for rides to and from the barn and horse shows. One of the great things about this sport, which I never appreciated at a...

    My 1100 sq ft condo here cost more than my beautiful 15-acre farm with updated house, barn, and huge ring in SE Pa. :eek: And the price of gas out here is obscene. Not to mention the 9% sales tax....

    To me, it's another example of our h/j crowd favoring appearance over substance. The model is conformation and movement - a pony's eyelashes are completely irrelevant. It's just unnecessary and over...

    I'm a recent transplant from PA. Though in LA, not SD, so I can't help with barns there. The horse keeping out here will be shockingly different from what you're used to. It still blows my mind a...

    If you are in an area where Lyme disease is a possibility, definitely test for it. You want the Cornell analysis that parses out chronic vs acute vs exposure. Lyme can make them so uncomfortable that...

    I would not assume from her viewpoint that Kip R drugs her horses to compete, or wishes she could. When this top pro and others are saying Ace should be permitted, my thought is that it's because...

    I recently did a similar cross-country move. I don't have any expertise regarding shipping pregnant mares, but I can tell you I trucked one horse in a box stall with Brookledge, and flew the other...

    That is some really lousy luck, OP. I'm sorry for your difficulties. I wanted to share my experience with putting in an outdoor arena and moving a couple of years later:

    The takeaway is that I...

    LH, I hope you get some answers tomorrow. Here is a post I made on an earlier Wobblers thread.

    I will share my experience with a myelogram and wobblers. My horse was 6 years old when he started...

    Finish your degree and then turn pro. Ride and teach a little on the side while you finish up your credits. Just put your head down and get it done. You will be glad to have options if you tire of...

    Well, the horse show days would certainly be a lot shorter if all the pros who lie to their clients found new careers. But yes, they are kidding, and sadly, yes, that is what happens. And often the...

    I understand the sentiment, and no, I don't think it's impossible to have a horse canter a hunter course without drugs. But I think the contention that Ace may be the lesser evil is based in reality....

    Amerigo is an Italian brand comparable in quality (IMO) to the popular French saddles (I have had a Devoucoux and currently have a CWD also). (Caveat: my Amerigo was a 2008; I haven't seen newer...

    Many of the show vets agree with Mr. Oare. Frankly, I do, too. It would not only significantly cut down on the rampant experimentation with unsafe substances, but would save the horses from excessive...

    Something to keep in mind is when you have an amount in controversy in the $15k range, your bills defending that matter can easily exceed the amount for which you are being sued....
