    Umm, he was cantering at my horses flank. I didn't mean he was standing at my horses flank during checks. Also, I'm hard of hearing and wasn't sure what was going on up until the kick. I just knew...

    Ha Beverly, excellent question on your part, bringing up the other thread, but no, this is happening on the flat, well away from the jumps, plus, as I said I am keeping up with the field leader, just...

    Speaking of leaving space

    This season our first field has been really small and I've been riding behind the field leader. I ask when we go out if anyone else wants that position and the answer is always "no". I like to...

    Some very good advice here, thanks!

    Leslie, I realize getting off the forehand isn't true collection, which is why I put quotes around it. I don't know any short-hand term for it tho. (Although...

    How do you approach jumps?

    After 8 1/2 years, I'm just getting to the stage of riding where I am trying to get my horse off the forehand when he takes a jump. As an OTTB, being on the forehand is just natural for him, and he...

    Most barns around here don't mandate ANY lessons or training rides, but the few that do usually just require one of either per week. Sounds like you are dealing with BNT-type barns.

    Hunter's Rest, aren't you an ex-steeple-chase jockey? You'll be fine. :)

    Good question.

    There is open and sealed leather. Open leather needs regular conditioning. (I'd use a conditioner rather than oil.) But, I'm not sure about the closed leather that has a...

    Well, I'm not sure what to think now. The orthopedic surgeon said it wasn't an inflammation but rather an infection of the bursa probably from over-scratching that bite. I don't know if that...

    Well, I went into the urgent care center at 2:00 AM. The doctor took one look and said "bursitis". But, since I had been scratching a mosquito bite nearby, he gave me a shot of antibiotics in the...

    Hmm, I as of yet have no fevers and chills or nausea or a general sense of unwellness. The skin redness is mostly around the old and healing mosquito bite. Most of the swollen area isn't red. I'll...

  18. Medical Question -- Update: It is bursitis

    Today, my elbow started hurting a little. I don't remember bumping it on anything. Anyway, I took a nap this afternoon and when I woke up it was even sorer, so I put some ice on it but that didn't...
