  1. Urgent - Any Vets Here? Severe Eye Sores; possibly contagious

    A little back story - I have lived overseas in Cambodia for the past 3 years and met a gentleman there who wanted to start horse sport in Cambodia. It is extremely new there and very very limited on...

    Yup. Pretty much.

    I have been here for 3 years so am getting over being routinely horrified but it can still be hard to take. The barn owner is a lovely gentleman and genuinely cares about the...

    I would say no also unless I really knew the trainer.

    It's a young horse - IMO, at that age, they are what they are. If he's not started showing; it makes no difference what he is like off...
  5. Long Shot - Anyone Have Experience with Horse Care in Asia??

    This.

    I won't buy anything under the age of 13. And my preference is either a retired show pony or an ex-school pony.

    I've looked at the type that "the grandkids ride all over". Most often,...

    Hmmm...so opinions seem pretty split down the middle.

    I guess we'll just keep searching but honestly, as McGurk posted above...small quiet ponies, even mediums are super hard to come by in our...

    I get having a pony that will teach them the hard lessons - maybe my 7 yr old could deal with that but my 5 yr old is the most keen and she has a timid personality. I just want her to have nice...

    My kids are little; 3, 5, 6, & 7 and petite and we're on the search for a first pony. We come from...

    But she's only been walking with maybe 10 steps of trotting once or twice a week?? And they are little kids so weigh next to nothing?

    It's been a while and my haunt was usually the H/J boards but I've moved away from that (waaaay away; I now live in Cambodia ;)) and I have some questions.

    Forgive a complete newbie - I'm actually...

    The horse was checked over fully by a vet (multiple times - both when he started to do this and also with the lady I knew)...no issues.

    I do believe he was born dishonest, as SmartAlex put it. ...

    The Chronic Bolter

    I was just thinking of a horse I worked with a few years back - he was the only one I couldn't fix and it still irks me to this day. Wondering if anyone else has successfully retrained a chronic...

    I was leaning towards a pony pessoa but am also considering a treeless saddle which apparently all the kids ride in in Britain. I think we will end up trying to have something shipped from the UK as...

    So would you suggest going the way of a proper cc then and not starting in a western or aussie saddle? May I ask how old was your daughter when she started riding?

    Pony Moms Weigh In

    Looking for opinions on saddles for little ones.

    My girls are 3.5 & 5 and I want a saddle that does not sit them way in the back of their seat i.e. high pommel and deep seat like most cheapie pony...

    Thank you; that is very kind.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions - the business does fine I guess. Every horse person I know that runs a show barn works extremely hard. Come to think of it, I...

    We've recently moved overseas so I cannot physically help; just be a listening ear and shoulder <figuratively> to cry on.

    Just my opinion, but I wouldn't do a ton of "busy" things on the flat with a horse that was young, green, undermuscled and nervous to boot. Just ride & keep it simple. If you can, hack.

    Ok, that makes more sense.

    Until he's more coordinated, I wouldn't lift..just push. Or if you're going to lift, do it for a millisecond and let go again.

    I had a horse who had a really similar...

    We've had a few Perch crosses; most were great, one was a bugger that had to be handled with care to get anything out of him.
