    You're probably going to be more comfortable in a flatter style saddle to start - think an older Stubben. I like a ridiculously narrow twist and I have been most comfortable in Albions and some of...

    Which in theory is a totally lovely idea. But until you have to make the geometric/algebraic equation that is show stabling requests work, you truly have no idea what it involves.

    I would also see if you can try her in a different types of trailer - stock & straight.

    It might just be that she does not like a slant (and I know most horses are fine, but those bigger ones...

    Another vote for the more time you can take off the better. A good surgeon should tell you that following post-op instructions will not guarantee no complications, but not following them will...

    While I am on board with the rest of your policy - it is not your place to manage my financial arrangement with the vet or farrier, and quite frankly - I'd be pissed if they were sharing that...

    Yes, totally normal. Stifle & hock injections are not a instantaneous cure. I usually hear 10-14 days for the full effect. Remember as well, your horse has probably been compensating for the the...

    My horse was diagnosed with degenerative joint disease at 9 in the left stifle. Was going 3rd at the time. For the first 18 months I had it injected every 6 months. He turned 11 this spring. Last...

    The answer is it depends. For just a lift/or a small reduction I believe that they do leave it attached and just move it up. For a larger reduction, they can do what is called a "free nipple...

    I think if you are talking about a small amount of subtle color - go for it if you like the look. I would be less enthusiastic about all of the piping being done in a bold color. It may be "the...

    I know it is legal for recognized dressage shows, I have seen a couple worn in the past year or so, and quite frankly I would be shocked to hear of a score being affected because someone chose to...

    Mine gets spooky, and over-sensitive to leg aids - particularly in the tempis.

    I can't say it is one side or the other in particular - as he has a weaker left stifle so there is more effort in one...

    Having a signed lease agreement is good. Especially if the lease to purchase option and dollar amount is listed on the agreement.

    x2. We had a sale go bad in my barn between two boarders. Never wrote a bill of sale and the seller "changed her mind" after the last payment. It took the buyer 18 months to collect the money...

    That's good to hear about ex-trainer. The original post did not necessarily read that you were on good terms with her. Though distinctly possible that I am just reading into a situation based on how...

    Since lessee's trainer refuses to deal with you, I would be sure to send written notice to ex-trainer that they are not authorized to do anything in relation to Dobbin's lease. No extending it, no...

    A horse that gets in front of my leg and stays there pretty easily is really important to me in a horse that I want to go to at least third level. It is so much easier to gear them back than it is...
