    Jingles that the vet has been out. I had one with lymphangitis crash fast - in a matter of an hour. I had an amazing vet who managed to pull her through with minimal long-term damage, but it was...

    Assuming you are cleared to exercise your upper body/get your heart rate up...

    Get one of these hand bikes and some hand weights.

    No, not a bad decision at all - although I wouldn't go there until the EPM test results come back. Just be aware that a bone scan isn't a guaranteed diagnosis. There are often two or three areas of...

    I would test for EPM, and consider injecting the SI if it is negative to try to rule it in/out.

    Around $3.5k-4k per horse, which does not include vet, farrier, other therapies, or any show expenses.

    Sorry!

    Long, slow recovery until you have an ultrasound that shows the injury is completely healed. I'm 7 months out from a very minor check ligament tear and just started trotting this week. ...

    1. You should absolutely buy your own helmet. Fit is very important. You will probably also want a pair of paddock boots.

    2. I would recommend you stick with one barn at first. People have...

    If you want to stay in Rittenhouse, the Rittenhouse Hotel is nice. Old City is a decent, but very doable 15 block walk.

    Super rough estimates - $800 for PRP. $1000 for IRAP. IRAP is two visits, because they have to take the blood back and spin it. PRP can be done stall-side.

    Depending on the injury, and the...

    Yes, you need a pair of dressage pants. If you don't have a thrift store around, a Wal Mart or Target should have a basic pair of black pants for under $20.

    I would not do it. Stifles are incredibly risky, and incredibly prone to ongoing NQR issues. I'd be more inclined to take that kind of risk on a fetlock or a hock on a horse I otherwise loved. ...

    I don't mind paying for FEI TV - but won't be able to watch live. Will they have recordings available?

    All good advice. I'd also recommend that you start with one, and keep a careful diary with three sections.

    1. Monetary Expenses: Every time you spend a dollar on the horse, it goes there. ...

    I prefer the smooth seat. The suede seat is sticky, and IMHO doesn't wear terribly well.

    Find out from the school whether they are Windows or Mac based - and what technology they provide to teachers. No sense buying a desktop if they are providing one.

    I would tell the owner that she needs to see the vet within the week, or you will be terminating your lease (assuming you can do that). It may or may not be Lyme, but the horse is clearly lame up...

    I go through Cunningham and Cunningham. Sara is wonderful. She's had me with a few different companies over the years - although I'm currently with American Livestock.

    I hated looking at houses when the seller was there. Print up a flyer and leave it in the kitchen for them to pick up.

    The percentage you pay will depend on the use of the horse. I'm paying a much lower percent on a dressage horse. No major hurdles - just a one page vet cert.

    There are a lot of trainers in the area. Several have live-in working students that need to work to earn extra money. We've had several do Sunday afternoons and Mondays to give the regular grooms a...

    No biggie - he just slipped on the pavement. It happens. I'd walk on the grass, and teach him not to try to eat it.
