    Your horse sounds too nice to lease it to someone you don't know just for a show or two! Sounds like it benefits that rider much more than you or your horse, especially for only $600-800!!!

    My Escudo II was not spooky but had a seriously bad attitude. No work ethic and violent bucking and rearing that took way too much professional training without ever truly going away.

    PeteyPie - The swelling has not changed in the last 2 weeks. It was improving steadily at first and now seems to be "stuck". I applied DMSO to the knee yesterday and saw no improvement. Will try a...

    And the people that get so irritated about those asking the questions are probably the same people that look down their noses at anyone who shows up at the ring looking out of place!

    Vesper Sparrow - thanks for the ice pack idea! I hadn't thought of that but that would be quite easy to do. The dex also sounds like it would help. I will try to float the idea by the owner. ...

    Wow! Didn't expect such venom!!! But I will clarify without rising to the COTH nasties as I know you all have the horse's best interests at heart.

    I used the term "acquired" since it could have...

    Swollen knee

    The horse I am riding acquired a swollen knee while out on pasture about 2.5 weeks ago. It was quite swollen, but he was only very slightly off at the trot, if at all. The injury seemed to originate...

    I bought the Centaur Turbo High Neck from Victory Canter and it is very impressive. 1000 ballistic nylon and waterproof and breathable guaranteed for 3 years. I believe this blanket is meant to be a...

    I agree with the rest. Older, untrained horses are not easy to train! Sometimes it is just too difficult to get them to have a work ethic after so many years in a field.

    I have both owned my own horses and part-boarded other people's horses. I would not expect a part-boarder to pay for the "extras". When I part-boarded show horses (they were usually horses needing...

    My daughter had this happen twice this season! First time, she should have been Champion, and they awarded her nothing. After checking, they changed the ribbons. It was really awkward since the...

    I rode an older mare this season that could not do a lead change in either direction,ever. Worse than that, she had been allowed to dive in around the corners. This led to a very entrenched habit...

    Hmmm. I owned an Escudo II gelding many years ago. If I didn't know better, I would say he had been abused also. However, I bought him as an unbroken 3 year old, and he didn't put a foot wrong...

    I have one and love it! I show hunters. That is a seriously good deal. I paid $500 for mine.

    Seems overpriced to me too. But the biggest red flag is the melanoma. These are benign tumours in horses (unlike people), BUT when you have one starting at the age of 6, there will likely be a lot...

    My daughter and I both have had several pairs of the Ariat Close Contacts. I love the look and feel of them, but the durability is very poor. We both ride about 2-3 times a week and they just don't...

    morsekg - She does not seem to have a sensitive mouth. The opposite in fact. It is improving a bit now, and on the flat she is getting more responsive. But even as we are going along happy as can...

    I have started riding a horse that is very athletic , but opens her mouth in response to the rein aid. The horse has been doing this for some time with the former rider as well. She will carry...
