    I usually try to go down, sometimes all the way down to a fat rubber bit, whenever a horse has any kind of issue - especially if they are heavy or "too fast." It seems to me they get heavy or rushing...

    I only use them when I know my horse will be having a difficult workout (deep footing, lots of circles, etc). I take them off as soon as we're done working, but they've really helped to keep his legs...

    I wear a heartrate monitor and a hard 45m ride easily burns 500 calories.

    That's what I was thinking too. If the blinkers are just put on with the sides run under the bridle cheekpieces, and not actually secured under the jaw, they can be quickly yanked off. The fact that...

    I couldn't tell if there was someone who could take them off or not. The video isn't really that clear. You can see people in some of the other chutes so it's possible. In fact the jockey isn't even...

    Maybe it was just to get him in the chute and then they take them off?

    I suspect the horse is wearing full cup blinkers, not the see through ones you linked to. He didn't even HESITATE before running into everything. So scary.

    If dietary changes don't help, I would try Keratex Hoof Hardener. I've used that on horses with shelly walls and had great results.

    When the naked horse you leap onto as you're running full tilt from the bad guys miraculously grows its own saddle and bridle in mid gallop for your riding convenience.

    1 cup 2x a day mixed in with alfalfa cubes or beet pulp.

    I would pull blood on the horse the day you do the test ride and have a blood test run as part of the PPE to check for calming agents, NSAIDs, etc.

    I saw that thread after much searching. I think people are missing it because of the title. I'm not in Florida so I never would have opened it.

    RnR sounds western/ranch-ish to my midwestern ears.

    I like Belmore - sounds elegant and if there is local history to it, you'll have a story to tell when someone asks about the name.

    How about...

    If the horse is dry all over, a feed through will help the most. If it's just in spots (hips, elbows, chest, etc) then I use either Lucky Braids salve (usually I use this on the scurfy areas, not so...

    A shorter curb chain can be effective against overflexing if you find the horse is otherwise responsive to the bit. You could also try leaving one rotation in the chain (i.e. not turning it...

    I think any discipline is going to be expensive if you're competing. Tack, hauling, show fees, lessons... it's not cheap in any world.

    I've tried just plain water, and the smegma is so gummy and greasy that water doesn't get it off. It won't even come off my hands (I was smart and used gloves this last time LOL).

    BruBoy, is that a goopy jelly like Excalibur, or more soap-like? I don't like Excalibur. It doesn't suds up and falls out of the sheath in big glops. I'm trying to find something soapier.
