    I have treadstone boots based on recommendations from this forum. They are lovely and fit well. They were $200. Can't remember where I ordered them from. They do run big, so order one size smaller.

    Honestly, I had to and still have to work with a dressage trainer. You can also lunge her in loose side reins so she can learn how to use her body properly without a rider on her. You may want to...

    Do you have access to a dressage trainer? Also, have you tried a different bit? I would try a softer bit and get her more responsive to your half halts.

    It seems like you could do better selling her as a seasoned second or third level dressage horse.

    Figure out what your sidebars are and then try to find someone word of mouth through trainers you know and respect. He sounds perfect for an adult coming back into riding that isn't going to pound...

    Agree with other posters, you should pass. I have been able to keep mine mostly sound but didn't jump him much more than 2'6. Always tried to minimize the jumping and made sure he went in good...

    I was at the show Friday night watching this class. As much as I didn't want Scott to win this class, he did deserve to win. Three rounds the riders have to draw one of the horses being competed. It...

    A running martingale, dressage lessons, and a bit he liked (HS Duo), all helped with the giraffe, hollowing. He grabbed the bit and bolted like you described when he was in pain. Get your vet and a...

    I like the Baker. It is warmer then the finer mesh sheets like the Rambo or Amigo but it holds up.

    I have had a really normal pregnancy and rode up to 7 months on my horse I have had for 7 years. I only rode in the ring and did light flat work. No jumping at all once I found out. Blood thinners...

    U.S. Compounding is out of Arkansas I think? I had to use them when Wedgewood was out of Pentosan. I am now using Wedgewood again. I had my horse exclusively on Legend for about 5 years. I could...

    I hit that point several years back. I moved to a low key but extremely nice barn without a lesson program. I still continued to take lessons, when I wanted, with a great hunter/jumper trainer but I...

    My old horse did this at shows, turned out he had moon blindness. I would have his eyes checked at the same time you look into physical issues. Mine was always fine at home too.

    OP, I would listen to this trainer and work hard to secure your leg and base of support by doing tons of two point, and cantering over poles. I actually think it is refreshing that they are being...

    I just ordered from Wedgewood last week. I got a 30ml bottle and it was $106 with shipping. I am wondering why people are getting quoted different prices!

    OP, what injections are you doing? Have you tried Pentosan? A lot of us with horses with arthritis have had a lot of luck with it and it is reasonably priced also! I would say lower level dressage...

    Mine was lame, sound, and then lame again. It was an abcess that blew through the coronary band. He did have a lot of swelling. I am not a fan of soaking because they can then bruise their hoof from...
