    It was just a POLES class, not cross poles. Literally 3 inches. It was an open/fun type show. I thought a pole class would be a good introduction to the show world for her, but I am hoping she will...
  2. When do you worry about a young horse's front end?

    I took my 4 year old Arabian mare to her first show on Saturday: we did the 3" hunters. This is the first time I have "seen" myself on her. Although I backed her last year, she seemed unsteady, so I...

    If the cow time will be available shortly, and the horse hasn't gone home yet, I think the trainer should keep the horse to take it to see the cows. If the cows aren't far from the owner, then the...

    I would be worried about vaccinating a horse for strangles without knowing its history. If the horse had strangles in the past few years, then vaccinating it could put it at risk.

    I only vaccinate...

    Have you ever sat down with her and discussed her long and short term goals, as well as created a plan with her to meet them? This might help make sure you are both on the same page.

    She sounds...

    I found saddle fit hard for me too: dressage saddles just seem to be less forgiving than jumping saddles!

    I finally went with a custom Frank Baines Reflex for my flat backed horse. It is a MW,...

    I have a horse here like that. He is turned out 9 hours, then in his stall for the evening/night. He seems to lap his stall at night if his neighbour is ridden at night, even if there are other...

    I like Greek Yogurt. I regularly buy the Krema Honey, Coconut or Vanilla Yogurt. It is high fat and almost tastes like cream cheese...so yummy. Sometimes I add granola, sometimes I just eat it as is....

    I have a room temperature Ensure every single morning. I share it with the barn cats. It is mostly because the Ensure is portable, so I can just grab it and go in the morning to clean stalls.

    I had never heard of this saddle. Might be worth considering if I can't get my Duett CC fitted for her as it seems well priced.

    Tanny98: she doesn't have a very curvy back, just what I would...

    I am not against interchangeable gullets, but are their actually any that work for a more bull dog type build needing a Hoop tree? I have ridden in Wintec (Dressage), Santa Cruz (Dressage) and a...
  13. Wide, Hoop treed dressage saddles, suitable for taller rider?

    My 4 year old Arabian keeps getting wider rather than taller. I am currently riding her in a 34 cm Duett Allegro (Close Contact) but it seems to be getting too narrow for her as well. Unfortunately...

    I have done it where each horse has a bill of sale, with the Price of each horse being the other horse.

    The reason I would do this rather than the $1 trade is if you want to insure the horse.

    I have used a tensor bandage tied in a loop for this purpose. It has more stretch, so won't hold your arms in place, but is more to provide a reminder and make you think of your arms more. I feel it...

    When I was shopping, colour was a criteria. With my health I don't want to have to spend time in the wash racks! So I got two bright bay mares with very little white.

    Prior to this though (10...

    Do you mean pastern bone (vs cannon bone)?

    How old is the horse?

    Looks like there might be inflammation around the coronet band.

    Poor circulation (from standing) can cause poor hoof...

    I will guess that she has found out that she can get away with not feeding when she doesn't feel like it, and so now feels that is an option.

    Perhaps if people start asking/questioning the feeding...

    Izzy is paranoid about bugs: even with her riding fly sheet, mask and bug spray, we still have grasshoppers and dragonflies that freak her out. It's just not worth it/safe. I would rather keep her...

    We spend three weeks walking on a long rein,...

    International Horse Transport is my favourite hauler, but I don't think they go to the Midwest. Elliot Horse transport might though, and they are also well run.

    Yes, I have had two clients use them. They were always very good with updates as to their ETA and the horses arrived in good condition.
