    Its obvious the horse was spooked by the dress - I wouldn't throw something like that on a horse without making sure they were a bit desensitized to it first!

    I blame the horse owner.

    Hey there - well, back when I first got into horses (the 80's) most people I knew fed corn oil. It was cheap, readily available, and horses ate it well. Many still do feed corn oil.

    I do a lot of trail riding. From dirt roads to narrow trails, to scrambles through rocky terrain.

    I prefer to NOT use boots. Just about any boot will make the horse's leg hotter, and studies have...

    Saddlebreds with high set necks and flat backs that allow them to work "up" in front. Uphill dressage...

    Ok here is my advice.

    OP - sounds like your horse is rushing and resisting your hands. Its a common problem - the "head flipping" makes it VERY clear he is not happy being held, and it also...

    Interesting. I would like to know more details - xrays etc would be neat to see.
