    If you can afford to horse show, you can afford to hire a shipper with a step up trailer. Somewhere out there, there is one that will come take you. No, it...

    If you don't think your friend would be receptive to a conversation about wrapping, how is sending a video link or giving her a print out any different? In fact, I sort of think its passive...

    I would stop oiling the feet. If you are making them too soft, the shoes will come off much more easily. Also, if your horse is continually pulling shoes, pull on bell boots 24/7 can work wonders.

    My Albion had a small tear like this at the edge of the seat. I used a little super glue and a furniture marker to repair it and its a year later, still going strong and not noticeable whatsoever. ...

    Dry fit shirts are your friend as a groom. Long sleeve in lightweight and light colours are helpful for those who are burnt from the day before. Also fantastic as you will get wet and it's nice to...

    Definitely looks like there is something going in the stifle/SI joint/back.

    Could also be neurological, especially with sudden tripping and toe dragging I would be looking into lyme/EPM etc.

    My Kuvasz has both food and environmental allergies. She gets a grain free food of fish and lentils/peas. Stay away from potatoes, even sweet potatoes, as they are starchy and the sugar feeds yeast....

    I would be crate training this dog. Take the pup directly outside as soon as it comes out of the crate. I work with a lot of foster dogs of unknown background and this method has never failed me.

    She looks like a nice horse that can take a joke. Maybe still a little green. I think her ride would smooth out a lot if she was ridden a little less behind the vertical between some of the jumps....

    I am about a 14.75" calf and require a tall - I got the Tredstep Da Vincis and a 7.5 medium was 15" wide and 19" tall. They fit perfectly. Tredstep seems to have a great range of calf height and...

    My advice would be to LET GO and let this horse go forward. More leg, less hand. I think the transitions are frustrating him and building the tension. Use the martingale (standing or running,...
