    You could try a Micklem bridle.

    Maybe also a different (non-Myler) baucher, double-jointed, or a full-check with keepers. Lots of horses prefer the feel of a baucher, because of the way it hangs...

    I bought a Rhino lightweight turnout, the Wug version, this past fall and my horse wore it virtually every day from late September/early October until early December when it got too cold for a sheet....

    I've used both Conquer Gel as well as some of the powdered or pelleted supplements with HA in them. My horse has also twice had the course of six Adequan shots and had her hocks injected twice. My...

    It might depend on why you want to add a supplement.

    Omega Horseshine has vitamins and minerals added and so it's different from plain flax. I have been feeding it to my mare for over a year, and...

    Since you are leasing the horse, you might also want to watch the owner ride the horse (as well as mount the horse). Does the owner have some of the same issues as you do?

    I think that all of the above posts are right about problems in the horse's basic training, but I just want to suggest that you check the fit of the saddle. Trying to scoot away upon mounting and in...

    If he's backsore, he's backsore, and it won't matter if you ride him bareback.

    It could be a poorly fitting saddle that has caused the backsoreness, but the horse's backsoreness may be a chronic...

    She is assuming that she is owed a commission? My god she seems like a piece of work.

    No wonder your mother doesn't want to deal with her.

    Does she charge you for the air that the horse...

    Don't cash the check, but do check with the CC company to make sure that the charge back is solid.

    Cute horse, and seems very sweet, except when he's bucking:winkgrin:

    I bought (last fall) a used County Eventer that I think was made in 2011. It looks different than the picture of the County Eventer that Pelham Saddlery has (if that's the one you tried).

    Heronponie has given you a good primer.

    It's going to be harder (and take longer and take a lot more patience) to teach a horse to load if the horse is already wary or scared of the trailer.

    One other (possible) piece of the puzzle might be the pony's deworming status.

    When was she de-wormed last and with what? Has she been de-wormed with something recently that will kill tapeworms...

    Yeah, what JB said.:yes:

    The only thing I'll add about saddle fit is that if the hollows near the withers are relatively new (or if they've become more noticeable), it is very possible that the...

    What diagnostics has a vet done to find out what might be wrong? And, for that matter, what is wrong? Is he lame? Backsore? What symptoms in particular have kept him retired?

    I can see both sides here, but just to take the saddle-fitter's point of view for a moment:

    He arrives and horses (there were two of them, right?) were in cross-ties. No horse owner and no barn...

    What else might be different in the winter?

    Different turnout schedule?
    Different feed or hay?
    Different level of exercise or riding?
    Different shoeing or trimming?

    Great photos!

    Any ideas where that second photo was taken? If the photo was taken during WWI and in Europe, I'd be less likely to think it was a German cavalry uniform, since the picture has two...

    You might also look at a County Eventer. The flaps aren't adjustable, but it's a comfortable all-purpose saddle that puts you in a decent, secure position when you jump the horse.
