    I walked under saddle almost immediately for my horse's check ligament rehab for exactly the reasons stated. My horse had a JOB and it was a much better choice for us. He liked being "in work" and...

    I agree that draw reins might help with a bolter. But unless someone is very comfortable using them, they can cause more problems than they solve.

    What if you don't have a contained area with no...

    You've got to be kidding. The OP has spent many months and thousands of $$ trying to get to the bottom of this. It has obviously not been an easy decision.

    My horse also hated the cross under style bridles. The poll pressure made him rear. I like this style sidepull attachment: www.orbitlessbridle.co.uk. I have an LG Bridle that is very similar but it's...

    Yup. You could even go with a Wordpress hosted site which requires no maintenance. There are a lot of very nice templates (free and paid) available now.

    If you read the thread you'll see that Kdriver has invested a lot of time/$$ trying to figure out what's going on with the horse. She has a trainer, she's seen the vet, the chiropractor, massage...

    Me neither.

    It's scary enough just hauling someone's horse (I bring people to local events but do not get reimbursed for more than half the gas). Trailering is dangerous, fraught with liability,...

    Yes, I make my own. There's no indication on Cocosoya about how much coconut oil is in their mix. I buy Coconut oil and regular oil (I"m not wedded to soy), at Costco and mix my own. If you heat the...

    The only way to know for sure is to check with an insurance agent. My guess is that if the OP is charging for the use of the trailer, then by earning money from it, she tips over into commercial use....

    If you accept payment other than a portion of the gas, it makes you a commercial hauler. You don't want to go there! Would need special insurance, commercial plates, keep a log, etc.

    Or turnout (when it's possible).

    As a foxhunter, I never wrap my horses after hunts. If it's a really hard hunt, I will cold hose. Mostly I just turn out.

    As a foxhunter, I appreciate the irony. Your typical show ring hunter would be left in the dust.

    I still remember competing over outside courses that actually encouraged your horse to move forward.

    Agree. Horses like my mare aren't mean . . . they just know they outweigh you. I've always had big horses (although this is my first draft x) and I adopted a no-tolerance attitude to misbehavior...

    Bonding comes only after respect.

    A big horse with iffy ground manners needs to know exactly what's expected of him. No exceptions. Once he understands that you are in charge, then you can bond.

    Success of the vet vs. farrier depends on the vet, the farrier and the situation.

    I would not give a blanket statement like the one above. I'd be pretty ticked off at the farrier described in the...

    Paypal may not protect you if it sides with the buyer. Plus you pay fees.

    Ask for a bank check/MO not a personal check or have them leave cash. I would not take a personal check.

    If there is a possibility of an abscess I would not put shoes & pads on right away. If your horse starts to abscess you don't want to pull the shoes again!

    What a beautiful horse!

    My own OTTB is on Triple Crown Senior because of its low starch content and relatively high fat.

    He is what I consider to be a hard keeper (he is stuffed full of hay...

    I have had horses that really, really liked sheepskin. It provides a layer of cushioning and it also wicks away moisture effectively.

    Not all sheepskin pads are all that thick, either. My saddle...

    You cannot refuse a return on eBay. It's stacked against sellers. However, I've sold multiple saddles on eBay and have never had a return.

    Older stubbens are hard to sell because, frankly, they...
