    While I don't live there anymore, I'm from Wheeling. No, there isn't any tack shopping, and finding a trainer is a PITA!

    Anne Kauffman developed a reputation for being harsh, but the person I know...

    Part of the reason I post is to get stories that remind me I'm not alone! Sometimes it feels like you're the only one dealing with soundness issues, you know? Plus when your horse is your stress...

    Thank you! And $3700 is more than all my others horses cost combined. So I've had SIX horses for the price of this one. It's a long story, but rest assured that all horses involved came out just...

    I just want a clue that what I'm doing is right. Three months should give me an idea if we're headed in the right direction or not.

    I don't see a problem with boot camp - I'm running around like...

    Thanks, this made me feel a bit better. I'm definitely trying the diet, and will be calling in to OSU tomorrow. He actually really hates 24/7 turnout, but he does go out for at least 12 hours/day....

    Excuse me, but I take great offense at this. Three months is enough time to see a *change*. Perhaps I wasn't clear about that.

    I have two other horses (lame retiree and another long story) and a...

    Oh I definitely need a trainer :) Until the past four years, when I've been able to afford poor decisions, I was a poor kid from WV. I rode trail string horses. I can tell you what NOT to do -...

    OMG. From here: "In mild cases, horses show a tucked up abdomen, muscle fasiciculations in the flank, and a camped-out stance. If exercise is continued, profuse sweating, front and hindlimb gait...

    I did ask OSU to take a look at neurological symptoms, and they ruled that out. Are there any other symptoms of ESPM? The only horses I've known with it are big drafty types.

    How much do these...
  10. Frustrated - horse issues. Just looking for encouragement.

    I have the worst luck ever when it comes to horses.

    My goals are: jump a 2' course, go on trail rides, do hunter paces, competently do a Training level dressage course, event Beginner Novice.

  11. Sticky: Riderless Horses in Central Ohio

    Looking for a sensitive rider to help me exercise my two horses. One TB X gelding and one OTTB gelding. Both are green over fences, but we're working on it! One is a solid 1st level dressage horse....

    I ended up staying at my current barn, but trailering to Jn4Jenny's trainer. So far, so good! I am at such a low level that this set up is working for now. I'm so glad she was suggested to me -...

    Yikes! While it is individual, it should not be even close to childbirth!

    I have most of my leg from ankle to knee tattooed, and while some of it has hurt, it is not close to the worst pain I've...

    Welcome! Columbus is pretty awesome.

    I've heard good things about the people TrakeGirl posted. However, I have little experience in the sort of horse world you're looking into! :)

    It doesn't hurt that bad, and really...no pain, no gain!

    I think an interest in body mod is like an interest in horses; you have it or you don't. If you don't have it, you don't understand why...

    I'm not trying to send any message; I just want to like how I look! Personally, when I look in the mirror and see my tattoos and piercings, I feel GREAT!

    Stretching - not gauging - your ear lobes involves placing a slightly larger piece of jewelry into the piercing to make the hole larger. It's typically done with ear lobes, but can also be done on...

    Stretched ear lobes, like any other part of the body, do not smell when they are cleaned regularly. Shocking, right?

    I am 1mm away from 1/2" holes in my lobes. As you can see here, my "gaping ear...

    I don't have any issuing with selling a "useable" horse. Unlike cats or dogs, there's a market for horses with x, y and z specifications. Horses don't have to be lifers. My dog, however - who wants a...
