    The hinds particularly are pretty tall - I didn't have any trouble with the fronts, but if she is quite short there I'd try the smalls. Eli goes in smalls behind, believe it or not - they are not...

    You are going to need a good mechanic. One who will tell you what has to be fixed and what doesn't. My truck is 15 years old but only has 50k on it as I use it primarily to tow. So far it has not...

    I also like the premier equine boots - they definitely are a bit cooler than non-vented boots, and they stay put and fit well on my horse. That being said, I have a size smaller on the hinds than on...

    If it is indeed his hocks, shockwave can be helpful when injections are not doing the trick.

    I'm another person who got carted off to the ER on a backboard after a scary fall. I was conscious and lucid and joked with one of the docs about getting my boots off (they had zippers); his wife was...

    If you haven't tried riding him in a bridge, give that a try too. My frisky horse settles right down in the...

    Don't forget you never have to wear a coat in any phase if all three phases are in one day.

    For the xc, if it is an unfamiliar place, walk it 3 times - once for where you are going, once for a plan to each fence, and once for memory. I only walk once if I am competing at home, since I know...

    If you take the shoes off he may well be tender on any and all of them for some time, so I would just have him shod the way he is now and evaluate.

    I board at Waredaca; they do run lessons in the evenings and on weekends. On weekends there is always an hour midday set aside for boarders - it's rarely crowded. Lessons end around 4 usually....

    I just picked up a pair of the kerrits ice fill britches on sale. They stay impressively dry in heat and humidity and are very comfy. I have ridden in them for several hours at a stretch.

    Also not cheap, but Virginia equine imaging would be my first choice, especially for the chronic stifle horse. For an injury you may be best off at Morven.

    As for wearing a coat, I will just say it was absolutely stifling here today. mid 90s with very high humidity.
    Seems preposterous to me to ask any athlete to perform at a high level under these...

    The thorowgoods are very nice saddles for the price. They come with exchangeable gullets if the horse gets wider.

    I agree with the above - the rider /open divisions are the way to go. I am a very average amateur and I have beat both my own coach (an active LF **** rider at the time) AND an Olympic veteran - both...

    I haul myself. I'm based at an active event barn, so if there is someone else competing at my level, we often go together. If not, I go alone.

    I'll play;
    1 had a chip in his fetlock at vetting - it was removed and he was NEVER lame on THAT foot. The front feet were a disaster and he eventually broke bones in one, all by himself as far as...

    I agree with guilherme - it's math. Look up those numbers and weigh the rig at a truck stop.

    Not sure I buy the idea that an older truck somehow tows worse than it used to. I haven't changed my...

    No, you can walk it at any time, including while riders are on it. You will have to keep your ears peeled and be prepared to move well out of the way every few minutes as someone goes by. I always...

    How big/heavy is he? I've had several BIG horses, including a belgian/TB/WB cross, and I've gotten them fit for BN, N, T, and for first flight foxhunting.

    I haven't wanted to wade in here as there are a lot of meta-subjects floating around. I did know a horse who was a pill to get into the box (not dangerous, just so excited he couldn't focus). That...

    Too bad you are not closer - we have an awesome awesome truck guy that all my horse peeps go to. If you really can't find anyone down your way, let me know. It might be worth the expedition.
