    Here's my thinking on this.....rotational worming is still the standard for most horseowners. Regular worming is cheaper than vet bills. Horses are NEVER worm free....worming is NOT...

    My PMU's were very "no touchy" when I got them as weanlings and had to be tamed to tolerate ANY touching to begin with. Amazing how each individually grew to "like" or be handled, petted etc. My...

    I've always thought horseriders & skiers are very similar. Both love the outdoors, do it in varied terrains & weather, like the challenge and do it best when relaxed and letting the mountain close...

    I'd also advocate hunt members donate to their local volunteer fire departments during their pledge drives as a token of support for all they do for injured riders. Sometimes it involves complicated...

    Eduardo Coria Training in Marshall. And I recommend a 15.3 black draft X named Ciruela. ;) They do professional livery and go to all local hunts.

    Been there/done this. Stop clipping the hair under there. Let fetlock hair grow long. Hair naturally wicks dampness/mud away from the skin. Keep area dry. More goo/less washing. JMHO!

    Or you can just boil your drinking water for 1-3 minutes. It's the encysted giardia that can be resistant to filters & chemicals. I have a spring well and pastures upstream from my holding tank. ...

    The chill you describe is from moisture cooling so staying dry by experimenting with different fabrics next to your skin would help. Try wool. Polypropelene. Silk. Cotton. Try them all. And...

    It doesn't matter how long others have taken to recover!!!. It matters how long YOU need to take based on YOUR doctors/therapists recommendations. You should be asking THEM for the timeline as no 2...

    Just to add: the length of lash can help too....I don't "like" to carry one but sometimes do - strictly to help do gates hilltopping. A lash helps you grab a swinging gate and you can pull it...

    You need shock absorption so use saddle pads that are thick & cushiony. I recommend Cashel cushions.
