    I agree with netg that it sounds like your horse might actually be tying up mildly. It's not always as obvious as you would think. Check and see if he is "hard muscled" as well.

    I think you are over thinking this. Just teach her how to ride the horse (including the bucks) during her lessons. Offer her whatever additional input you think is appropriate (how frequently the...

    I think it sounds quite a bit like PSSM/EPSM, actually. It's not just about "eating good." PSSM/EPSM horses need a low starch, high fat/high protein diet.

    Actually, people WERE saying that wide horses can't have saddles with narrow twists. That's just not true.

    Also, I'm not sure what your problem is with Schleese?

    OP - speaking as someone...

    Congratulations! It's a really big deal to come that far when you were considering giving up not so long ago.

    Dressage clinics are usually a one rider at a time deal, so there isn't typically an interfering with other riders' clinic experiences. That's one of the things I like most about dressage clinics,...

    I didn't read atlatl's post as a "wet blanket" type post at all. He or she was just saying that, hey, no matter what you wear the reason you are at the clinic is to learn, and you can do that...

    I just re-read one of your posts where you mention a slow feeder. Is the horse currently without any hay at night? If so, that definitely isn't helping. Horses use food to soothe themselves, and...

    I would try changing his stall location if possible to see if that helps. If it doesn't help, it could certainly be nighttime animals scaring him, or it could simply be who he is. Some horses are...

    I second this! Shelly is wonderful. She is about an hour and a half West of the Milwaukee area, but she does come to the Northern Milwaukee suburbs about twice a month for clinics at several...

    Just watched the video again. She's toe-dragging lame on both hinds.

    Well, this horse is very obviously lame on the right hind, but honestly looks like she may be off in both hinds with the right being worse. I'd do some x-rays of the "usual suspects" in the right...

    Ha ha, mine was/is the same way: "When he is good, he is very, very good, and when he is bad, he is rotten."

    As he has matured, the good parts have gotten better and the rotten parts have...

    I noticed you mention his passion and desire for success in the show ring, but don't really mention any kind of desire to work for the good of the HORSE. I've got no particular dog in this fight,...

    Yes, this exactly. I wonder if he would give me the "don't ever let anyone make you feel 'less than'" speech if I showed up with my little TB and told him I'll never sell this horse?

    This is what SOME researchers think, but it is far from settled in the veterinary community. Like I said, researchers have really only begun to scratch the surface when it comes to muscle myopathy...

    There are two KNOWN types. But muscle myopathy research is still relatively new, and most research has been directed at QHs and drafts. I'm suggesting that there are other similar myopathies that...

    So, given that some TBs show symptoms of EPSM, don't test positive for it on biopsy, but respond to a high fat/low starch diet...this leads me to believe it may be a similar, but not...

    My TB has suspected EPSM/PSSM. I've e-mailed with Dr. Valentine and she suggested that it wasn't worth doing a biopsy on him because (a) he was responsive to the diet change and (b) TB biopsies are...
