    Wow, some tough customers out there!

    What makes these girths (TSF and Fairfax) so special? Are they different than all the other anatomical girths that have been out for several years?

    Over the years, I have used a county logic,...

    I am enjoying reading everyone's responses. It sounds like good conscientious horsemanship prevails at COTH. I am pleasantly surprised most horses are allowed to be horses and not hothouse...
  4. What is in your prevention system for keeping your horses fit and sound?

    I am curious to learn what other horsemen are doing for their horses and how often. What do you feel really makes a difference for supporting your horse as an athlete?

    For example here are some...

    Has your vet considered inflammation in the spine? When horses brace their backs they can become harder to turn. I wonder if the positive flexions are really coming from the back? I am not sure...

    I think your mare has sticky stifles. Her kneecap does not release fully so she does not flex her knee/stifle. This is why she looks like a cross-country skier in the back and why she drags her...

    I put one of those owls with a wobbly head on top of my mirror. He did drive a mockingbird crazy for a couple months... but other than that, there have been no casualties since his installation.

    I love the Rhino wugs. They stay waterproof because they have a membrane instead of a coating. They are fast to put on, which is a godsend in cold weather with frozen hands and restless horses. ...

    I have two mares (half-sisters) who get a similar shoulder twitch. No AQHA blood at all. I tried supplementing magnesium and other minerals to no effect. I discovered that supplementing with...

    I discovered that vet clinics can be a super solution for overnight boarding. They often have safe stalls available, and you have the added benefit of access to veterinary care if a horse arrives...

    "Your hands belong to the horse. Your elbows belong to you."

    Downyonder, that's interesting. I do visualize that the elbows buffer the rider's hips while the hands buffer the horse's mouth, but...

    i have seen non spooky horses become spooky because of ulcers and pain as one poster pointed out. I don't even think they have to have ulcers. Some horses get spooky from gastritis. I like the...

    I would start by treating ulcers. You may also have a pain problem that caused the ulcers. Let us know what you find.

    Your horse sounds like she might have gastritis from the stress of showing. You could try giving Ranitidine twice per day along with the Omeprazole. You might also start giving the Omeprazole on...

    I had stomach ulcers myself and mixing brands is fine. I also mixed ranitidine and omeprazole as they have different actions. Ranitidine seems to work faster.

    With my horses I definitely got...

    I agree with Donella .

    I am glad the op is going to try treating for ulcers, turnout and a problem-solving trainer. If this mare is green and she is inexperienced, this may have been a...

    I had a horse like this and I discovered that he was sensitive to the special metal they use for Kk ultra bits. The problem disappeared when I put him in a slim stainless steel eggbutt.
