Walk - even if you lose your deposit.
In the future, never let the sellers fix anything. They have no incentive to do it right, or to the standards you would want it done to. Table credit at...
My vet recommended dabbing the area with luke warm water on a gauze pad to clean it once per day (after 48 hours), then putting some Neosporin on.
I learned everything in PC. First and foremost I learned horse management. I rode around in trucks with vets, dentists, farriers, chiropractors, trainers, just about anyone who would take me. I...
1 cm is not large, and stitches can only be done within 12/24 hours of the cut happening.
I would clip the hair off the area. Get a bucket with some luke warm water and a clean towel or gauze. ...
I'm so sorry. The news is devastating I'm sure, but I commend you for facing reality. I had a friend with a wonderful Big Eq horse that turned similarly neurological during his prime. They managed...
Yes, it's done. Trainers arrange 2-4 weeks out. Selection will be more limited, and lease will be a good bit more than 1/12 of 1 year price. You should also expect to pay shipping to/from...
This. While tragic, we can't legislate or regulate every potentiality.
Good luck. Let us know how the x-rays look.
Bumping this to see if anyone else has results to share?
I'm considering the Fairfax, the Nunn Finer Bella Donna, the Total Saddle Fit, and this Anatomic Toulouse New Version (here:...
I throw them out when the edges start to fray. I'm not a saddle pad junkie (I collect bits). All of my schooling pads are the same: Small Diamond in Black from Smarptak.
I've had teeth pulled from two horses standing. I'd ask whether that is a possibility.
Do you mean heavy (but standing) sedation and a local anesthetic? Or laid down?
I'd be hesitant to do general anesthetic with an older horse if the first method would work.
What are the ratings of the judges at these shows? L, S, r, R? Trainers with no cards?
If your goal is to see how you will do at a rated show, go to the show that has a judge who is licensed to...
I've had no issues with my Charge HR. The heart rate sensor leaves a little imprint on my skin when I take it off because of the way it sticks out, but it goes away in 5 minutes.
We soak feed for everyone unless you have a special request for dry.
Ask nicely. If they say no, offer to pay more for it.
You can't soak ahead of time.
I see $15k-$30k depending on how the horse rides, and what it looks like in motion.
Don't worry about the supplements.
Get a rehab/strengthening program from your vet. Something like 3 months of walk/trot only (no cantering) 6 days per week every week, with hillwork,...
Air traffic control most certainly knew something was wrong - but I agree that I don't want them to have the ability to override the plane's controls to do anything about it.
List the horse for sale, and ask your trainer to help you shop for something suitable. The commission you pay will be well worth it.
IMHO, a lot of the older Prestiges fit the same. There is a lot more variety among the new ones - some fit flatter backs that the old ones ever did (although not pancake flat).
Neurological issue sounds likely.
I'd start with a blood test for EPM ASAP. If it is positive, you'll want to start the treatment ASAP. It usually includes a drug like Marquis or Oroquin and a...
I've definitely praised some unrequested piaffe steps before, but generally I just ignore it and re-do whatever it was that we were doing until it is done right.
It's on TOTD today. Does anyone have one? Reviews?
I've got two of the mesh sheets, but both are too big for my new guy. I also think the mesh sheets run big - my 81 horse absolutely needed...
I'll also add that riding time really matters. If you can squeeze in a third ride per week - even if only in the summer - it will help.
