    Abbie.S -

    "Also, think about this: if the horse is moving straight, and then "overtracks", would he not hit or clip himself? That's certainly not desirable, or safe."

    Mattes now makes western pads. I am pretty sure there's one with shim pockets.

    I'm also at about 12-14 hours overnight turnout this time of year, except for the retirees who are out 24/7 with a big shed. Mine are mostly ponies and can't handle 24/7 grass, even though several...

    I ride bareback a lot, but much more in winter than summer. As I always say, it's the original seat heater!

    If my horse is not better when I finish the session than when I start, then maybe I would give it one more try. If my horse is worse when I finish than when I start, then probably not.

    If you...

    Is the stall rest and stretching veterinarian's orders?

    My understanding is that contracted tendons are usually treated by providing support so that the tendons will have the opportunity to...

    I can't be sure what type of training you want, but I will say that David Bradbury is a true horseman and I have watched him work with a stallion and young horses and I would trust him with any horse...

    I have a horse with one of those. She has had it for a year or more and it has never bothered her at all. Have had two vets look and they both said most likely a little damage to the extensor...

    JackieBlue:

    I am curious about what you say. I have an old (31) horse who was diagnosed and treated for EPM last year. He improved immediately with the treatment and has finally regained some...

    How about something with "Brick"?

    Brick Red
    Brick House
    Solid Brick
    Sergeant Brick

    Or playing of "Chevy", how about "Chevalier"?
    Chevy One-Ton (or half-ton) or Pickup?

    I agree with CrowneDragon - don't see any red flags. Assuming the horse is in California, as you are, then the somewhat contracted condition is not surprising. At least when I lived there, I found...

    Daventry -

    I think I didn't understand your question. What does "spark" look like in your discipline? If you have plenty of GO and plenty of fitness, what's missing exactly?

    ETA: Maybe he...

    Sounds like you need to get him more obedient to the GO aids yet still soft and rhythmic. That's dressage, first level and above. Also, more conditioning to make it easier for him to maintain the...

    That's the situation I was talking about so DO put the ribbon in her tail, DO warn the riders behind you that it means business and DO practice at home stopping her and then asking...

    Not sure what you mean about "slow and steady." Dangerous behavior like you describe needs to be dealt with right now and as strongly as required.

    First, by all means put a big red ribbon on...

    Ditto what kookicat said PLUS, may I suggest that you post an inquiry on the breeding forum about your foal's behavior. You will get lots of good information there on what you can reasonably expect...

    I don't remember the intervals exactly but I'd guess 6-8 weeks after foaling, I would hop on the mare bareback and ride around the pasture with the foal. I would pony the foal for a little while...
