    Sorry, this probably isn't what you want to hear, but if you had a vet check and it didn't turn up then - I think you are stuck. It's not the breeder's fault your vet missed something that they...

    Yes, I look at that original video and can't imagine asking a horse to do that even for a month of training and having it stay sound (Of course if it moved like that I don't know if I could tell). It...

    Thank you everyone who shared videos! Interesting how much different the riders positions looked in the old examples. The horses look much smoother when the rider isn't all hunched up (how did that...

    NOM- agreed. I'm sure there are lovely TWHs out there that are allowed to move differently and are happy in their work!

    As a comparison, can anyone find a sample video to share of some TWHs being...

    Wow, that canter is truly strange. Doesn't it look like the horse that won the class has DSLD or something? Maybe it's how rocked back they have him moving, but his back pasterns look soooo loose....

    I know, he really is. I was really surprised that 30 days of ranitidine and 30 days of BPR made no difference. Obviously ulcers can develop quickly so I'm not ruling them out, but I really think...

    He's definitely a quirky OTTB. I bought him off the track when he was 6. He's never liked eating hay much, cribs and acts a bit like a paranoid psyzophrenic (sp?) when he's not being handled or...

    It's ok, I've just had him so long - when I do eventually lose him I'm going to be a wreck. The thought of that possibly being sooner than later is hard to face.

    This is exactly how I would describe what I saw yesterday. He was snoozing very peacefully, then it looked like he woke up and 'caught himself' before he actually hit the ground. Afterwards he went...

    Older horse falling down?

    Saturday while we were in the aisle way with another horse, I heard a noise from my 24yr old TB's stall. I wasn't able to see what happened, but the gal that was with me said he fell down. He was in...

    Thanks you guys! I'll see what my feed store offers later today.



    I'd like something simple for now (since this is a bit of an experiment). If removing soy makes a difference in a few weeks,...
  13. Soy-free feeding suggestions? (anxiety issues)

    I have a gelding that has had some anxiety issues under saddle for a while that I just can't figure out. I've had him for 8 yrs now and he used to not have these issues. He was sensitive to the aids...

    That really describes how things feel sometimes in tests. Riding more strings of movements from the tests in our regular rides is a great idea! That should help a lot.

    Thank you everyone for your...

    Great advice, thank you! I think that's very much it, when riding the test I often focus too much on the pattern and on mistakes Im making - it's hard to just 'ride the horse as needed in that...

    Tips for riding tests?

    What's your approach to riding tests, vs. just schooling your horse? I've been riding and showing for 30 years, so am not a beginner to riding tests, but would love to hear some tips people may have...

    Pea gravel is not good. Had a friend that used that + sand and it dug into the base, loosening the compaction until the gravel base came up through the footing. It was a disaster and she had to redo...
  18. Narrow horse with long shoulders, saddles slip fwd.

    I have a narrow horse with average withers (not super high or low), long shoulders and a forward girth groove. He fits well in a MN county jump saddle with SR panels, but I've had a terrible time...

    That's it - thank you Ghazzu!!

    Is it unusual for a horse to be so sensitive to this that he would 'tuck' when currying lightly though?
  20. Good Update

    The abscess resolved, he came sound again just as the month on pop rocks was over. Still has one minor twitch when tacking up on some days but there has been a consistant, MAJOR improvement. I...
  21. Pressure point Q - what could this reaction indicate?

    My gelding sometimes hunches his back when I curry a spot about 6inches away from the top of his tail, towards the hip. Next time the vet comes out for something I'll be sure to ask, but I was...

    Good ideas. I will be sure to ask about both of these possibilities if/when we go to the hospital. Still hoping we won't need to go, and especially that it isn't #2, but good to have things to ask...
