    Thank you everyone for great advice and precautions!
    Unfortunately, coming down in price and making them a counteroffer is not really an option as they are already getting “this is the original...

    You dont start with full blown W/T/C work when bringing horse back from rehab. You start with a month or two, or three of walking under the saddle, gradually adding time.

    Jaxon's injury was pretty bad, and I believe it was a chronic DDFT tear, so we took everything veeery slow. He was totally out of work for a year (June 08- July 09) while we tried various things,...

    I am with you on staying conservative. Canter is not really that helpful or necessary for the rehab anyways. I would concentrate on good engaged trot work and introduce canter only once I am sure and...

    I second butlerfamilyzoo.

    While some people may not appreciate all of CM methods, most of them should be common sense to any dog owner. Dogs need to have a structure and consistency in their...

    When I was dealing with DDFT injury, reinjury and eventually a surgery, I chose to stay on the safe side and did not introduce turnout until Jaxon was in full work.

    He was cleared to start work...

    This is the time when they develop feel for biting, and they all go through this stage. Normally, she should still be with her littermates, so it allows them to learn what hurts and when to stop when...

    GoodAsGold, I know how you feel now, but what makes the dog good is exposure.

    They won't drop you but body parts with issues will be excluded. If I were you, I would run and do the best MRI I could ASAP because come renewal time- it won't be covered.

    I am 5'11 and around 145lbs. That's why I am amazed at Purp because she does not look that much heavier.
    I guess, it is the best example how muscled rider at a heavier weight looks better than...

    I do have skinny legs, but I am thinking if I add some muscles there, my spare tire will disappear, so it will play out to the same weight more or less.

    I apologise, you are right. What I meant to say that in terms of volume, the same weight of muscles will take less space than fat.

    Sorry, but I have hard time imagining a 170 pound woman who is fit and not loose.

    I am 5''11 and 145lbs with a rather thick bone structure, and I can definitely see and feel those extra 5-10 lbs...

    Nope, full seats will not damage your saddle, however, your jeans might :)

    BTW, with calf skin covered dressage saddles you don't need full seated breeches as they are already very sticky.

    How are they holding up? I did not try them, but I tried Revere (spin-off of JRD) and I was not really impressed with leather quality and craftmanship. One of the saddles felt okay, but I did not...

    I have a Butet and it is for sale because if does not fit high withered horses. It fits my wide and flat WB perfectly, but is a horrible fit for high withered TB cross.

    My farrier charges $240 for trim and reset. It's a set price and does not change whether he is resetting existing shoes or putting a new set on.
