    No, I would not buy the horse no matter what the x-rays or records showed. If it has OCD and is not in work, it is too hard to tell what the limitations will be. Each horse is different. Not worth...

    Small hole hay nets are the way to go. Less waste. Hay nets are great for horses that have heaves, allergies, or slight breathing problems. They are easy to soak the hay and the nets keep the...

    I hope these items continue to be brought up so that less knowledgeable clients start to see what really goes on and find the backbone to actually ask the questions (usually you don't have to ask --...

    THIS >> "How would you feel if you trusted your trainer only to find out their 17 year old working student was hitting veins (or trying to)?"

    This is precisely where I state social responsibility...

    Sorry Rayers -- I was just following the follow-up posts about USEF, not just strictly addressing the original post.

    I understand the responsibility part, but I would be more concerned what you are leaving them with the rest of the heard. They all seem like a lot harder sell than a green broke/fancy horse. I...

    It is my understanding USEF will not specify whether a certain product is legal or not, but they will ask you for the ingredient list. If you cannot obtain the ingredient list (which many vendors or...

    I have ridden on rubber mixtures and while I do love the mix, if you get too much rubber it is slick and does not hold-up well to outdoor elements. We get quite a bit of rain here and it seems to...

    Do not have a meeting with her. It is not you job/place to inform her of barn hear-say. While it sounds like you have legitimate concern, your concern stops at your own horse. What others choose...

    Many people do not like the velcro and there are many options that do not have the velcro. I believe Ovation has lovely breeches with a great fabric with no velcro. I would definitely look at the...

    I am not suggesting the work is bad at all. What I am suggesting is that there are issues that farriers cannot see with the naked eye. Even the slightest angle change can make a huge difference on...

    It seems to me you will not be happy in this situation for any amount of time. However, at this point the ball is in your court to make some changes. I would not consider it blip in your resume if...

    First thing I want to say is I am not a trainer...you have to do what you feel comfortable with. Sounds super scary. It seems to me you really haven't addressed any of his issues. You are riding...
