    I have been there, except it was stadium, not xc. In my case it included a pretty dramatic crash. I dropped back a level from T to N, swallowed my fear (so I thought), and got back out there the next...

    So glad you had fun- hunter pacing is what started me in the road to be an eventer (and I had the same reaction- whoa, this is WAY more fun than riding in a ring...). Glad your horse feels so good -...

    At one day events (pretty much universal in my area for at least the lower levels) you will see hundreds of horses tied to trailers. With all the equipment changes for horse and rider and with lots...

    I agree with others that it is most likely a strength issue, having sat on a lot of big greenies while shopping. The ONLY caveat I will add is that a very big young horse can also have OCD in his...

    It's not true that there is nothing left after injections no longer work. Shock wave can be very effective and is not invasive.
    I started injecting my horse's hocks at age 9 as he had reasonably...

    In my humble experience straightness issues come from horse being stronger/weaker one side to the other, actual physical problems that need to be addressed by vet/chiro, or, biggest factor, the RIDER...

    Yes, they were, equisusan, but as I said we never had any weight bearing reluctance to deal with.

    Depending on where you end up living, places like Waredaca and a Bit Better would be in reach. If you are north and/or west of the college, you could be 30 minutes from there. I am in Crownsville and...

    Mine live out full time almost an hour from my house - I can and do make a best guess as to weather, but you can bet I get it wrong from time to time, and there is no one to go out in the 70 acre...

    I don't know about this - my horse had bilateral hind suspensories, faciotomy to relieve the pressure. He never showed any reluctance to bear weight, and my vet (very experienced lameness vet, worked...

    So, you health provider peeps would not care about health insurance info? Seems like every time I arrive at the ER that is the FIRST thing they want.... (Obviously an EMT, no, but if you are wearing...

    As most have said. I have big, short coupled horses and have found that they will pull shoes up front if I stud the fronts, so I tend not to at the lower levels. I've not had a problem studding just...

    Forging ahead is a top notch farrier drawing clients from even 100 miles away.

    I never clip either. It is well documented that they perform an important function even in a horse with two eyes. Some artificial notion of aesthetics isn't worth impairing their ability to interact...
