    Staying hydrated is key. If it's really bad try ice chips only until you can tolerate something more. Weak ginger tea helps too. Hope you feel better soon. Stomach viruses are the worst.

    I fixed this problem once by cantering along a hillside, perpendicular to the slope, with the right side on the downside, so that my horse had to use her right lead to avoid falling down. It only...

    I found a new Collegiate Alumni for $600 and added a Thinline Trifecta pad with wither shims. This has served very well for several years, horse is happy and I have no desire for anything fancier.

    For what it's worth, I had a bad chafeing problem when my saddle was tipping slightly forward. Problem solved when I invested in a shimmed pad with inserts in the front to make my saddle fit my TB...

    I've been following JB's instructions for a couple of years with excellent results. FECs all come back negative, and I only worm with Quest Plus in the spring and Equimax in the fall.

    Pretty tame here too, with the occasional goose flapping out of nowhere, and an owl swooping close to our heads, but my good boy just does the four-legged spreadeagle foot plant and stays rooted to...

    I like the Thinline Trifecta pad for this. It has a bit more thickness than the regular Thinline half or contour pad.

    My poor horse became completely unglued when two Icelandics moved to the barn. The eye-rolling snorts, the planted feet and rigid neck... Eventually he learned to cope, and they were no big deal. ...

    Suddenly, everyone seems to say I'm "excited for" something instead of "excited about" something. Why? It annoys me. (Hate to sound like a jerk about such a small thing, but it does!)
