    Don't discount the "still getting used to the new saddle" idea too quickly. If the old saddle was keeping your leg too far in front of you then your muscle memory has you compensating for that...

    This!!

    Yes, jointed irons absolutely can cause more pain for some people. They erased my knee and ankle pain (over time) completely, but I have talked to people who had their pain increase. ...
  3. People can only walk all over you if you lie down...

    People can only walk all over you if you lie down and allow it. Get up and move barns! I totally agree with those who've said you'll feel like a weight has lifted from your shoulders.

    Go barn...

    What you need to do is block the excess moisture and poop tea from your horse's feet. I used to use Fiebing's Hoof Lotion (the lotion has a cantering horse on a yellow can - NOT the "Hoof Dressing"...

    I wore a shed flower out in one grooming session last spring! I didn't feel it got as much hair off as my Unigroom rubber curry.

    I have a Furminator now, but I still feel the curry gets more hair...

    I'm so sorry for your impending loss. Spoil him rotten this week. Take pictures. Love him. (((hugs)))

    I rode a horse like this for someone for a while. Older than yours, and further along in training, but was retraining to a more laid back discipline. The mare just lost her brain after the first...

    I so want to do that for my young guy's summer clip!! If he needs it again this year.

    Apparently you needed to put wings at each side and a rail over those folding chairs! :lol:

    Mine is very sensible (okay, apart from the first day tearing around in the somewhat larger paddock that was then pulled in to make it the 5x stall sized one) but I still make sure he is working...

    When my boy injured his hind suspensory he also paritially tore the outside branch off the sesamoid bone. It's been five years and I don't even think about the injury any more. He does everything...

    You know how when you're out somewhere and come off your horse they tend to either bolt at high speed or stand and look at you like you're an idiot? I came off my boy, scraping his bridle off with...

    In the canter try hugging the horse with your legs on the up - the moment the horse's shoulders come up (he is in suspension and reaching forward with his hind legs at this point). Then allow the...

    Good story, and well told. :)

    The Carnivorous Mouse Incident is the first one that comes to mind for me. Please forgive me for putting a link to my blog instead of copying it here.

    Well clearly your friend (having gotten you into this situation) MUST go with you and video/take pictures of the event. :)

    Have fun with it!

    Mine injured both hind extensor tendons in the same summer about 7-8 years ago. He had a couple of weeks of stall rest with hand walking on firm to hard ground (nothing soft). I cold hosed and...

    For riding the canter forward from back to front, and maintaining the rhythm of the canter I like this deceptively simple exercise:

    Set up a cavaletti or tiny jump at X (to be jumped B-E...

    Essentially yes, except I was skipping the cutting off excess bit, and the sewing it back on bit.

    I was offering a picture, TBFAN, not asking for one. ;)

    I have an International Air Lite with the dial. I've crunched two of the same helmets in the last three years and the dials never shifted. In the winter I tighten and loosen the dial near daily,...

    I would ask my vet to do a rectal to check her ovaries. I've seen mares with cystic ovaries show those sorts of symptoms.

    I'm reading that your problem is not the feeding, but bringing in/checking/handling another horse without that horse being targeted by the TB - yes?

    If that's the case, get yourself a nice long...

    If you have adjusted the strap as tight as it can go and it's still too loose, cut the stitching that attaches the strap to the slide piece and pull the strap through further until you have the strap...

    I too encountered a bird of prey on its kill last summer. It was super cool! In my case it was a red tailed hawk and it chose to carry its dead snake off to devour elsewhere. I must have just...

    Here's another thought for you - her vision. I had a young horse who didn't like me touching him up behind his ears. I discovered quite by accident that it wasn't the touch he didn't like, but the...

    It's probably more significant to see what the horse's temperature is related to his own "normal" temperature than to see how cold he has to be before a vet worries. 91-92F is probably getting into...
