    This. I'm 5'2" and find that the longs give me that added bit of coverage, at least as far as the Ariat Olympias are concerned.

    For everyday riding and schooling, the Tuff Rider ribbed breeches...

    California's in a major drought, yet it rained today. It has to be Obama's fault.

    It's also his fault that the gut strings on my gamba have gone out of tune which means I'll need to retune. Yet...

    Years ago there was a horse in my barn who had two mild colics in the course of just a few months. He had also started being just a bit grumpy. I don't remember if he was scoped for ulcers, but he...

    It's the melatonin that causes the winter coat to grow in the off seasons. I've had my HS-er on the melatonin/magnesium protocol from UC Davis for several years and feel that it has greatly reduced...

    Yes they did.. The only reason I know is because a friend who gets the magazine (I don't) read the article and recognized me in it. She wanted to know if I really truly did what I said I did (dunk my...

    This is ludicrous... unless you're considering SoCal to mean all of California.

    I ride at an A circuit barn in NorCal and everyone grooms their own horse. Out of the many barns in this area, I can...

    Aaargh!!

    I heeded 2ndyrgal's advice and called my Dr. this morning. I was told that yes, I needed a new cast since fungus would grow in the damp environment I had created. However, since I was...

    Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. I had to leave my house very early this morning, so didn't have a chance to read some of the later ones, unfortunately.

    What I ended up doing was using the...

    Keeping a cast clean while at the barn

    I had surgery about three weeks ago to repair a ligament that was torn from my thumb. After two weeks in a splint + bandage, those were removed and a cast was put on. It will stay on for a total of...

    My vet has me give my horse 6 ml (1/2 bottle) IM every 2 weeks. I don't know if that's the standard protocol, though.

    I had the surgery just over a week ago. They did a nerve block on my entire right arm which lasted for 24 hours -- I was actually relieved when it wore off as I found it scary to have no feeling in...

    I used a combination of a basic bandaid + a few layers of padded first aid tape and it helped enormously. I couldn't have continued to wear (and break in) my boots without those two.

    I found the...

    My injury wasn't anywhere near as dire! The thumb was intact, but the ulnar collateral ligament was no longer attached to the bone. It was initially diagnosed as a bad sprain and didn't get properly...

    Thumb injury/surgery

    Has anyone had surgery to reattach the ulnar collateral ligament? (The injury is also known as "Goalkeeper's Thumb.)

    If yes, what was your experience like? Were you in a splint or in a cast? For...

    I shell out the big bucks for the Equilibrium one. I like that there is a bit of shape to it and that it's easy to adjust. I don't think horses get the desired benefit from the muzzle nets when...

    My show boots are La Mundials and the zipper starts on the inside and then bends around and goes up the back. I really like this design especially since it allowed me to customize the spur rest -- I...

    Jazz, Envy, and Opal (the last two I discovered only recently!)

    I also like Fuji and Gala, but I find them inconsistent and not always crisp and flavorful.

    I just have to comment that when I read the title of this post I thought there was a horse named "NyClass" who had foundered and this was somehow adversely affecting a female reporter.

    If you do decide to go with Cosequin ASU, try to buy it in a 3-pack. It's a lot of money all at once, but you'll get the best per unit price.
