    Last I saw it was second thread down. Don't forget to put your location and credentials in.

    Ride as though he'd never think of stopping, but don't get too forward with your body. Do not walk it. Maybe I've never been fond of jumping from a walk, and a ditch is a jump. Just think of...

    Ears and tails aren't nearly as much of a indication of irritation or discomfit as is total body attitude. An unhappy horse usually displays a "going backward" while sort of going forward movement,...

    One of the keys to long and low is "Forward". With energy. There should be light contact, and the nose out in front. Simply trotting around on a long rein is not long and low.

    After a lifetime of horses, some very good horses at what they did, I too have had two heart horses. They were years apart, and totally unexpected intruders into my heart and still missed.

    flaxenfilly- I'll be the first to agree that there are horses like that. It's just hard to convince farriers.

    It sounds as though you have found an answer.

    I've always had a (bad) habit when pulling shoes off, to threaten the farrier with death and destruction if they over trim. I do get cooperation. ...

    Of the three, the one I would buy is this one as it allows its use with a bit. It is very close to those used at the SRS where horses wear a bit long before they are backed.

    eruss-Whoa pony! All the OP wants to know is why the horse was lame. To me it sounds like a legitimate question.

    So if she wants to see the radiographs, and perhaps get additional US, why are...

    You don't once mention a repro exam. She is a mare. Mares have days. Mares can have a lot of days. Get her checked out by someone who does a goodly amount of repro work. It can make a lot of...

    I believe it was John Lyons who would put a bunch or riders in a ring with only one rein. It had nothing to do with the horse's heads and everything to do with the rider's use of their body. Your...

    How are the edges finished?

    I can remember horses chewing on the rubber fencing, and getting shreds of the fiber in their gut, and then colicking.

    Not fun!

    Absolutely something the horse needs to stop taking ASAP.

    Unless you are paying for the previous vet's bill it takes the lessee or the payer of the bills to authorize the info turn over. The info...

    Good video. Good dialogue, and good examples.

    Very helpful for those who teach dressage to know that the same principles are holding.

    I can't imagine that an MRI would do anything except to confirm a Dx,unless your vet suspects something additional is going on.
