    I'd just enjoy him.... selling him might be easier said than done, given that we are going into winter, and he's been out of work and out of the show ring for awhile now. Maybe re-evaluate in the...

    I LOVE THIS.

    Made my week.

    Cheers to him, and to you.

    Exactly.

    And even the "this/then" and "if/when" needs to be learned.

    My son had no concept of time. He didn't know what "in 5 minutes" or "tomorrow" or "yesterday" meant so if he wanted to...

    YES for sure, working on me is a huge task this winter, especially since I'm pretty much a dressage newb.

    Working on the halt is a great idea.

    I too was worried about lateral stuff as I don't...

    Raff those are not offensive questions at all. At the school my son attends, most of the staff do keep their hair pulled back. They also have protective gear for dealing with kids that may become...
  6. Things we can work on at the walk and trot....

    My horse has been laid up since May, first with a nasty cut on a front leg, and then a muscle tear in his hindquarters. He is just starting back to work, at the walk only for now. We can add trot...

    And this is why early intervention is so important. People bristle over the fact that 2 and 3 year olds end up with diagnosis but shoot, if you can re-shape behavior when they are little, things may...

    I've checked in on this thread several times in the last few days, but was only just able to bring myself to read the article.

    The whole thing makes my heart hurt. My son is autistic, though he...

    That is great to know.... I have wondered especially about acupuncture.

    Also given the asymmetry in his hindquarters I'd love to know what I can do to better rehab him. I'm guessing someone who...

    Thanks for asking, JB. :)

    A couple of vets and lots of diagnostics later, we did find a significant muscle tear. He also has an old pelvis fracture and some asymmetry. No fresh fracture.

    Thank you guys!!

    OP, I'm a professional graphic designer/art director and have been freelancing exclusively for some years now. I'm definitely a horse addict.... ;) Feel free to shoot me a PM...

    FM I am really sorry this happened to you!! But very glad you did not sustain worse injuries. How scary.

    Might be worth a trip back to your doc if you are noticing a crackling feeling when you...

    A friend of mine leased horses to this woman a few years ago. At the time she said she was coaching a college team. No idea if that was true or not.... but in any case, the horses returned from...

    Oh gosh, this gives me hope.... Congratulations!!!!

    My horse is currently on stall rest for a suspected pelvic fracture. Vet thinks it is "hairline" but still. :(

    I'd love to hear more about...

    I'd be curious to find out too what is the norm for eventers.... I worked at a hunter barn where most of the horses were not jumped more than 1-2x a week, and rarely above 2'6-3' (even the Big Eq...

    Yeah, and, this is a horse that really doesn't spook. In the 6 months I've owned him, he has never spooked with me on him.

    I don't really know for sure what the deal is or what may or may not...

    Yep.... she called me earlier today and said she talked to him this morning. They are in agreement it is likely a pelvic fracture. He's gonna come up and ultrasound, sometime in the next week, but...

    I'd think it'd be really expensive. I pay about $15 for a jar of it (the size of a peanut butter jar.)

    Okkkkk maybe not a muscle tear. :( Friday night he went down and could not get back up-- couldn't use the leg to push off of. Once I did get him on his feet, he could bear weight but not use the...

    Thanks a bunch, ToTheNines, that's really helpful and encouraging. Sounds very similar to what my guy has going on, minus the infection.

    We are also using Surpass, and I've been hosing as have...

    Muscle tear in hindquarters?

    My lovely gelding was on a walking trail ride last week, spooked a bit, and immediately went seriously lame on the left hind. Vet came out the next morning and there was no obvious swelling, but he...
