Are there some horses who never learn changes?
I purchased he Vtek Marathon (mid-weight) and the Techno-Fleece fitted. I really love these blankets!
I have a VERY broad shouldered and up-headed FriesianX and I just purchased 2 blankets from Schneiders (sstack.com) and have been thrilled with the fit. The only problem I had was trying to decide...
"There is NO research that supports chiropractic affecting a horse's overall career positively. People LOVE giving these things but these are not evidence, research based practices. It's...
Do you know what kind of frogs they are?
"Rana Pippin" are Norhern Leopard frogs
"Hylidae" are tree frogs
"Ranidae" is the order of the true frog family
I've had my FriesianX since he was a yearling. He's now 7 and an absolute blast! I had NO experience working with youngsters but my trainer convinced me that I had enough horse knowledge to at least...
You are correct! The rider is Sue Jaccoma! Couldn't happen to a nicer person/rider.

This thread is very timely...today was our "canter" day and after 10-15 minutes of walk and lateral work we went right to canter. To the right, everything was relatively fine but to the left I...
I use a chiropractor for my horse every 6-8 weeks (7 yr old FreisianX) and have done so for almost a year. His conformation is not ideal for dressage and the work she has done on him has made an...
I did the string test and the measurement from the knee to the coronet band and both were spot-on. Another general rule is to add 2 hands to a one year old and 1 hand to a 2 year old. Of course...
I'll second the MDC irons! They have done wonders for my hips and ankles.
I disagree that it is not a big deal. It may not be the argument you invite yourself to but to say it is no big deal is to dismiss how much this person's actions bothered you.
I don't blame you...
I was at the derby last weekend and it was GREAT to be able to watch SO many fantastic rides. Although I loved watching Pop Art, and Idocus, I think Catherine Morrelli and BeSe had a WONDERFUL ride...
Why not just call him Caramel...Cary for short (like Cary Grant).
You are going to LOVE it! I will take a few weeks for it to "settle" but if you use the conditioner they send you'll be all set. I feel like I'm riding in a couch!
I have been riding in my new Trilogy Verago for 2 1/2 weeks and I love, love, love it! I have owned over a half a dozen saddles and this is the first one I actually feel comfortable and secure in,...
Steffan Peters and Courtney King would definitely be on my list. They are both B-E-A-utiful riders and are very kind to their horses. Wait...Steffan isn't riding Floriano so I guess technically I...
Poulin Equi-pro...LOVE IT. I've used Purina Ultium as well as Nutrena XTN and I like the Poulin the best.

I love my draftX...he's a sweetie. He was 3 in May and is almost 16.2. Both of his parents are 17H + so I'm hoping for at least 17H (I'm 5'11"). This is my first youngster and it has been AWESOME.

That is such great news! She is such a B-E-A-U-tiful little girl. I love how you call her "tiny dancer"! I am keeping you both in my horsie prayers.
When I was sick as a young child all I wanted to eat was spaghetti and ketchup. I still love it!
What goes around...comes around. Respect will come to you when you show it for others. Thus far, the door has only swung one way...yours.
