    Blacksmith was just out last week, wish you had posted sooner!

    I hate to tell you this minnie, but some riders are used because they will "ride anything". Not saying this is the case here, but true nonetheless

    Also wanted to add, I see you're in Md...me too, just wondering how much history you have on her. I may be able to help, you can pm me if you'd like.

    Will she pony? Just thinking that you may want to try this, and let her get comfortable, but of course you then will have to wean her off of her "friend". What does she do threatening (rear,...

    Is she doing this with a rider on her or just hand walking? I'm asking because I'm trying to figure out where you are in retraining.

    And yes, I've seen horses that have refused to break or train...

    Personally I would wrap with an Animalintex pad, then vetwrap and duct tape over that to help it stay on. Elastoplast is also a great alternative to duct tape. Probably would start him on some...

    I remember Andrea riding Valley Crossing, he was a beast. There was a good filly that she rode for him too, Star Minister. She had a screw loose and I remember Andrea telling me that she dared not...

    RIP Dickie Small

    Another excellent horseman gone too soon. Dickie exemplified how training racehorses should be done. A true gentleman who always had a kind word, he will truly be missed.

    Ice for the first 48 hours, then heat is he general rule...or basically to get things cooled down before you start with heat. The thought behind pin firing is indeed circulation, and remember that...

    Angelico, once again you are misinformed. Yes you can scratch a horse, even walking over to the paddock if you had to. Been there, done that.

    We had a great meet at Oaklawn, won a Grade 3, and...

    And to Angelico, as far as scratching a horse before a race, it can be done. Trainer says horse is acting colicky, etc and bam, your horse is scratched.

    I'm not sure where I'm making excuses for what happened, but I suppose if you haven't actually done it I shouldn't expect you to get it.

    I am an ex jock, and was a work rider for many good outfits. This meaning that I've been on the backs of 1000's of horses when they were running at near top speed. I've been on horses that aren't...

    Not thinking it's an East Coast vs wherever, but possibly the quality of racing that you hang out in...by the way, I was at Oaklawn, kicked butt there too.

    Micheal Gill, but he wasn't exactly going into the barns himself...and yes, been in plenty of barns. I think your talking about an owner telling a trainer what to do, but going into the stalls...

    Nope, been around plenty of tracks over the last 30 yrs and ran a barn that was a big claiming outfit with over 50 head. Must be a difference between the types of tracks we frequented.

    And you...

    This has to be one of the wildest statements you've posted so far...

    I actually did have a filly I was working break her pelvis...I felt it right away and pulled her up as quickly as I could. But all breaks are not created equal, the first few jumps may have felt...

    My take on that race...horse hits gate leaving the race, once in awhile that does happen. Rider gets the horse going and looks like he's running okay down the backside besides beginning to get...
