People never cease to amaze me. That is one of the most dangerous things I've seen anyone do with a horse. :eek:
Saddle shopping sucks!! Can you find that same saddle in a larger seat?
I'm not sure what class you are riding in but I think you need to loosen the reins so that you can bend your elbow and relax your arm. I agree that the saddle might be a bit small. I was told to...
The wranglers on the aforementioned 6 day ride said they wore panty hose under their jeans to prevent chafing.
Every time I move my manure pile I come across ashes where it has burned inside, and sometimes it is still smoking.
When I had my two retired Arabs they had their feet trimmed on the same schedule as my riding horse.
Definitely NOT my cup of tea. I prefer a western look for western events. A little bling is okay, but that's way over the top. Also, on page 36 and 38/39, what's with the rider leaning back in the...
I have one. I stopped using it and bought a Diamond wool pad. The Tacky pad makes the horse's back way too hot!!
Antique sewing machine was my first thought too.
My trimmer said that the maker of Heiro claims that it will prevent founder even without a change in diet. Not sure I'd trust that claim--I'd still use a grazing muzzle.
Please take the halters off when you turn them out (unless they are breakaway). You could end up with a horse with a broken neck if a hoof gets caught in a halter.
I asked my vet about a Lyme vaccine for horses when I got one for my dog and they said there isn't one for horses. Can you clarify?
I have the Ariat Crossfire Caballeros. They are comfortable but I don't know how they wear because I don't wear them often. They are tall and square toed though.
Sorry, double post.
That's exactly why I bought a new one when I found a good deal on a show special.
Can you lease her? Find a reasonably priced used car that the money from the lease will cover payments on?
My mare was giving the farrier a bad time consistently. I had a chiropractor/massage therapist work on her and she is much better. Poor girl was in pain. You might want to rule that out first.
Just throwing these articles out there in case OP is interested. Obviously you are not and you are entitled to your opinion.
You might want to go to his web site and check out his credentials. He is a mechanical engineer and teaches at Ohio State--engineering and hoof trimming. No pseudo science involved.
I just received and email from my trimmer with his new article on navicular. You might find it interesting. Actually, there are two articles. I highly recommend you read these before accepting the...
Nasty stuff. I've heard that some farmers with draft horses put it in cola and leave it out for raccoons. One farmer lost several horses due to the raccoons contaminating the feed, thus the poison....
I ride in Wrangler Auras but I don't ride long distance. When I did a six day horse riding vacation 15 years ago and rode 8 hours a day I rode in Horse Woman Spirit Jeans without chafing but I don't...
I sold mine on Craigslist. Went fast.
What kind of saddle pad do you use? Make sure it is something that does not hold heat. I have a tacky too pad that I cannot use because it makes the horse way too hot. I have switched to a felt pad.
A good death is better than a bad life.
