    Ok, ordered my first pair of breeches ever, from the Rackers website. If these make me cringe too much, I will find a long shirt. I hate buying clothes without trying them on.

    I have a young green horse too. So far I've only walked on trail rides, other than some very brief trotting. You need to get your horse comfortable and confident with trails at the walk, by doing...

    I know a few people with Black Forest saddles, and they like them a lot. I have a Bob Marshall which I love, but not on my new mare. :( It rolls, and she is green, so I'm borrowing a treed saddle....

    My wood chewer stopped when I have him a probiotic. May have been coincidence, but it's an affordable thing to try.

    I wouldn't pass up the right horse because of its gender, but I'm more of a mare person. Possibly because of all the praise they get on COTH. We have three mares now, the most recent addition being...

    Deet, fans when possible, and you can try a Thermacell. I've never used one, but they have good reviews. I could've used one the other evening on my ride back to the trailer. Google Thermacell, my...

    A radiologist should be doing the actual reading of the CT scans. You can request the reports from those exams. They may be gibberish to you, but you can ask the doctor to explain whatever is...

    I used this great advice, along with the rest of this thread, yesterday. Took my new six year old out and led her through a local trail. I rode her briefly down easier parts of the trail. There...

    I'm pretty sure my dog, who is around 12, tore his other CCL last night, just wandering around the yard. He had a TPLO on the other hind leg a few years ago. I don't regret doing it, but I will not...

    I love my Bob Marshall. I use a Skito pad with it. It worked great on my gelding, and I used it twice on week long riding trips in SD. It is probably the only thing that will now fit my 26 year...

    Thanks, all good ideas to keep in mind. She is on a dry lot with run-in 24/7, will have access to pasture more now. Soaking hay in the winter is not feasible, doable the rest of the year. I also...

    I got about a two month supply of Smartbreathe. If that does nothing then I'll try the MSM and spirulina.

    I'm going to try the Smartbreathe first. Crossing my fingers that between that and being on pasture, I'll see some improvement. She's 17 or 18 and a great trail horse, so this is a big bummer.

    Heaves Supplement

    Has anyone had success with a supplement to help with heaves? I have a draft cross that developed heaves last summer and I'd really like to be able to do some light riding, but she has gotten worse...

    My husband's draft cross is asymmetrical also. I use the Diamond Wool with shims and remove the shim on the larger shoulder and the two smaller ones in the back.

    Try the saddle and see how she...

    Well, it does look like it fits differently on the right vs left, but that doesn't mean it won't work. I don't think you'll get your hand underneath while mounted, necessarily. How tight is it? ...

    If you have a horse with one large shoulder you could try the Diamond Wool pads with shims. You'd still need to find a saddle to accommodate the larger shoulder, and then remove the shim on that...

    No. Never. A co worker went to a fundraiser that had puppies up for auction. She said they were from the humane association, and I doubt that was true. If so, pretty messed up for HS to do that to...
