    The Little Britches series by Ralph Moody is amazing: it's about a 9 to 18 year old (through the whole series) boy growing up first in Colorado, then in Maine, Boston, back out west, etc. The books...

    Great story, and he's an amazing rider--it takes both skill and guts, and a great horse!

    I would second (or fourth) testing for Lyme disease.

    But it might also be worthwhile posting pictures of his feet, since you're right that if his feet are problematic that can also cause general...

    You might try him in a double-jointed baucher bit (maybe that's what you meant by "hanging cheek"?). Although the it's the headstall that attaches to the upper cheek piece (not the reins).

    I use a...

    My vet administers the canine vaccine to horses. My horse has been vaccinated, but only after she had lyme disease twice in 6 years. She has not had lyme again since being vaccinated, although of...

    Well, at least it is a randomized trial with half the group receiving a placebo, and horses followed over a couple of months. It's certainly better than no data at all, but it is a small sample size....

    If he's constantly stepping on his shoes and pulling them off, then that is usually a problem with how he's trimmed and shod, as JB said above.

    And be careful about allowing the farrier to put...

    I prefer Durasole to Keratex, just because (for whatever reason) I don't feel like I'm inhaling Durasole when I apply it and I do feel like I'm inhaling Keratex.

    Just a random thought.

    I would go ahead and use Durasole, perhaps less often.

    Uvex. It's in the $280 range but it's lightweight and ventilated. I wore a GR8 for years, but it was *so* hot in the summer!

    Not an expert but FWIW:

    In the undersaddle video posted in the first post, the horse looks unhappy, and as if she's guarding her back--her head and neck are up, her back is inverting away from the...

    I'd also vote for a discussion with the farrier about glue-ons to see if that would be one way around the problem.

    I'd also wonder if the mare might have some underlying chronic pain issues aside...

    Saddle fit.

    Have you tried checking to see if her back is sore? Run your thumbnail down (the long ways) the side of her spine on the long muscle and see if she drops her back. Is she unhappy when...

    When I had to store my tack for about 7 months, I cleaned it well, smeared it with the leather conditioner Ko-Cho-Line, wrapped it in towels and then pulled large garbage bags over it. The saddles I...

    Actually, I'm not convinced that beer doesn't do anything (although whether it helps with sweating I have no idea).

    The one thing I would worry about would be intestinal parasites. I've read that MSM has some effect on worms, so it's possible that there might be a connection to colic because of the (possible)...
