    I have nothing helpful nor productive to add to this conversation, except to say that at first I just glanced at the title and thought it said "unicorns" instead of "unions" and was intrigued.... :)

    Any suggestions for getting a horse used to the hock boots? When I first bought mine, I put one on my gelding's hock in the cross-ties and he was terrified to move. Could barely get him the five...

    My greenie spun out from underneath me last spring, resulting in a fractured tibia and fibula when I landed feet first. While in the ER and hospital I always said that I fell off my horse, as he...

    I think I'd just plan to start slow. Get on something you trust and just take it step by step. Get on and sit there. Maybe walk around a little. If you feel like trotting, go for it. If you're...
