    My horse roars and I've never had an issue with lower level work. As others have said, have a vet look at it, but what was a career ender for racing might not hinder a dressage horse at all,...

    Where in NC are you? There are a lot of people on this board from NC, so might be able to offer suggestions on available horses or leases and recommend great trainers and barns.

    It's always a tough call with an older horse. I've had a couple, one I bought at 23 who was still sound and showing locally when I "retired" him to a kid and got my current horse, who is 21 and...

    Glad to hear she's doing better!

    You've probably already done it after her accident, but if not, definitely put some highly visible fencing around the pole and guy wire so you don't have any...

    Right of first refusal doesn't necessarily mean you just give the money back and get the horse for that same amount. Generally, it means that the horse is offered to you first at the current market...

    When they tested for diabetes, did they test the blood from a tube or directly from an ear prick? My cat was misdiagnosed twice because they tested glucose in blood from the tube, which read normal...

    Totally played horse--2-legged variety. I broke my arm jumping when I caught a toe. Also fell of my bike a few times because I was using rope "reins" tied to the handlebars to steer.

    I don't think OP has grounds for any legal action--IMO (and I'm not a lawyer but I am a journalist and fairly well-schooled in the definition of libel and slander, so take it FWIW) this isn't...

    OP, I'm sorry you lost your gelding. That's a hard situation for any horse owner.

    I'm going to echo what some others have said...take your time. If it takes a year to find the right one, it...

    You wouldn't board your horse at a barn where the expectation is that you treat the barn staff decently or will be asked to leave in accordance with the contract? Is it the "don't abuse the staff"...

    Is the full seat an insert or is it sewn on over the actual material? The reason I love my old ones so much is it's sewn over the material, so it's the fabric against your leg and not the clarino or...

    Maybe 15 years ago, Devon Aire made full-seat breeches out of a technical-type fabric that I can't remember the name of to save my life (something-something 2000, maybe?) that I loved, and now wish I...

    I've never seen that reaction from any of the horses at my farm who are on it, nor have I heard any customer feedback about it making horses hot. Some horses do seem to get hot on different feeds...

    Full seat breeches in fun colors (I admit, I loved the neon Tuff Riders. Alas, no full seats). If I can have whatever I want, I want navy blue breeches with a lime green full seat. Love that color...

    I had a cat who fully blocked on BB. He was on Royal Canin for a while, now just gets regular canned with a tablespoon or two of water added. He has never had crystals since (knock on wood, of...

    Legends feeds are excellent and are less expensive than TC. I'm a snob about TC Senior, but they are comparable. Legends actually guarantees more ingredients than most TC. I don't have the...

    The chestnut in the pink halter that shows on the video belonged to someone I know who sold her to those people in good faith after being fed what she now knows is a pack of lies by them. She's...

    I once had a little kid come running up to my very loudly-sported leopard Appaloosa, dragging his mother in tow, obviously quite excited, yelling "Mommy, Mommy, look! A ZEBRA!"

    And I once had a...

    Whole flax will last a long time--I never had any issues with spoilage and I bought it in 50 lb bags, living in a humid climate. It's once it's ground that it needs to be stabilized or will ferment.

    Alternately (and generally a good bit cheaper!) buy a bag of whole flax and grind it yourself as needed in a coffee grinder. If I wasn't boarding I'd absolutely do it this way--did it for a long...

    Yup, TC Omega Max. IDK where it originates, but it's lovely stuff and won't go bad if you use it in a normal amount of time and store properly.

    Same here, except one of mine eats in the kitchen, one in the bathroom and one in the bedroom. Didn't take them long to learn to finish their meals or risk someone else finishing it later.

    I spent a long time walking before doing any trot work at all after my horse strained his stifle. First in hand, and later under saddle. We were lucky to have a cross-country course on the property...
