    Plus Keratex hoof hardener on the walls.

    Nutritional changes depending on what may be low or missing or less than ideal. A good hoof supplement and some high-quality protein or amino acids perhaps.

    Horse Arena Drag Patterns Animation

    I found this helpful animation showing various patterns for dragging your arena. Who knew I've been doing it wrong all along?

    Many riders of all stripes have suffered brain trauma. How does that make one unable to read a schedule?



    I love this! I wonder if I could use that at work?- "Really, it's just water." :lol:

    I have the Arena Rascal and pull it with my ATV. The difference between it and the chain drag is dramatic. It fluffs and smooths the footing and creates "cush" where there was none before. My footing...

    As an owner of two laminitic horses (front feet) and three pairs of Soft-Ride boots, I can attest to their therapeutic benefits and they've been wonderful for short-term use. But they also come with...

    Do you swipe your card at the gas pump? That's much more risky in my opinion. I had my chip card skimmed last year.

    Colorado

    1. UltraShield EX - higher concentration of permethrin
    2. Endure or Tri-Tec (ingredients are identical)
    3. Equicare Flysect

    Valley Vet is a good place to compare ingredients.

    I've had better luck with wedge shoes versus wedge pads. They're more stable and less likely to allow the hoof to sheer forward, and you can roll the heels to ease the impact on landing.

    There are...

    And from the looks of this test, those are well deserved scores. I had not seen this horse before. This is a really nice ride and he is quite a talented horse. She has a great connection with him...

    If this is your idea of a soft connection I don't know what to say, except to show a picture. Two frames showing the movement of the curb shank within fractions of a second. Top row is pretty much...

    While I love this horse and how he performs his test, I'm not a fan of the reins bouncing and the curb shank bouncing up and down, nor am I a fan of this rider's seat in this test. He just looks...

    I suck it up and consign it with a tack store. The last three I sold I have consigned with Happy Horse Tack in Fort Collins. The owner/fitter, Jen, is my saddle fitter and she usually sells the...

    I'm pretty sure that one of the jokes has to do with Hans Peter saying that the arena is too short when he runs out of room doing the zig-zags. Then Edward does them and finishes and says, "No, it's...

    I think that is a wise choice to leave him there where he'll be closely watched and well cared for. It's easier on you, and if anything goes wrong, he is in the right place.

    I wouldn't worry about...

    Team Glock gives a clinic

    Edward Gal on Zonik and Hans Peter Minderhoud on Ziesto. Zonik looks amazing.

    It looks like a fun time was had. I wish I understood Dutch and could get the jokes.

    This was done on Priefert's premiere horse-safe panels, all four legs. Of course, horses can hurt themselves on anything if they try hard enough. They can kick through wood or mesh.

    Thanks for posting this! I have two sets of the Red Barn calfskin reins and love them, but have been searching for longer reins for my big, long-necked horse. This doesn't state the width but I think...

    Sure, I think dressage riders are always striving for the ideal of "invisible aids" but competitors are riding for the best score possible. If it takes a little sideways rein aid to keep the horse on...

    I have seen other videos of Gal on Undercover where the movement of the right rein is even more obvious and where it is very clearly a deliberate aid on his part. I do not think it is a flaw in his...
