    I'm 5'8" - average build, longer in the torso than the leg. I prefer a 17.5" in the older style saddles like Passier largely because I find the stirrup bar placement in the 18" to be awkward for me....

    It can make it more likely that they will interfere - and need to wear boots up front. Depending on how close they are when full grown - they can also struggle with half pass.

    My experience has been that the testers want to get through their quota as fast as possible. If they need 10 horses that day, they walk over to the show ring and take the first one walking out. As...

    I don't see anything that worries me. He's a bit long in the loin, and the left front looks low in the heel - but it could also be an optical illusion. I think he's going to be fine behind when...

    What about a volunteer/community service group? Tends to be a very accepting/inclusive group. Could be anything that interests her - food pantry, visiting nursing homes, reading to children,...

    Cut her hay to 1% of her ideal body weight. It's probably less than 8 flakes - although without weighing your flakes I have no idea.

    Soak the flakes to remove the sugars before you feed them.

    The deep digital flexor tendon runs from the back of the knee/hock to the bottom of the foot, where it attached to the coffin bone. It's entirely possible that the OP's horse injured it above the...

    Definitely a Wintec Kids or just a plush bareback pad at this point. Those little leather saddles can be slippery, too wide, and not well balanced. They don't always feel secure to a little person.

    I have the 2007 5.7L Hemi, and pull a Brenderup with no issues. I'd hesitate to pull an American style, full size trailer.

    It depends on where you are talking.

    Up north, it's seems to be about 50/50. 50% charge a lower monthly rate to hold stalls while horses are down south. These are generally people that are gone...

    I am also allergic to penicillin and sulfa. I was recently on clarithromycin for a sinus infection with no adverse effects.

    I wouldn't recommend starting with "as much leg as you have to give." It's about changing his whole posture - starting from his hind legs. This is just teaching him to be behind your leg - which...

    I've got a strained check ligament at the moment, and have been re-evaluating all of the icing options out there.

    Absolute best so far is a flexible human gel ice pack from CVS - put on with a...

    What happened to the vet? I wouldn't be trying things with this horse until the vet came out for a lameness exam.

    If you want previous show experience in the 3'6" - I'd think you're talking north of $40k. How far north depends on age, soundness, prep, fanciness, ammy-friendliness, etc.

    If she lives on campus - definitely call campus police/security ASAP and ask them to do a wellness check.

    Very simple really. You're not in a position to take the mare, but are happy to put the word out to see if anyone you know might be interested.

    For $8 I'd be thrilled. Yes, with some fillers and flowers you should be fine.

    If you want to decorate, you can pick up cheap potted shrubs (or ask for a daily donation/rental from a local...

    A few thoughts...

    1. We always start riding before turnout. Tack walking relatively early, eventually trotting, then cantering. When the horse is cantering under saddle, he can start turnout.

    Stall rest might be appropriate if it were an acute soft tissue injury in the SI region - but you typically wouldn't inject that. You would inject arthritis, but you wouldn't rest that. It's really...

    It can't hurt to give them 12 hours apart just in case - i.e. if you are dosing the omeprazole in the evening, worm in the morning.

    Almost every school offers 10 or 12 month 0% interest financing. You only need outside financing if you want to spread it out over 5-30 years like college.
