    EPSM and Shivers often co-exist. That is great news that you already have the Chiropractic angle taken care of/scheduled.

    I agree on the possibility of euthanasia as being better than passing her on to someone else. You have gone above and beyond, and the next person may allow her to backslide again. The only other...

    What part of the country are you in? Maybe there is a CoTHer in your 'neck of the woods' who has a nicer facility and a spare stall. Are you sure you actually need a trainer, at all? If you are...

    Ride bareback for awhile, just walking at first, with emphasis on wrapping your leg around the horse's barrel without knee pinching. As you ride periodically do some ankle flexibility exercises,...

    Add a fat supplement for a few weeks. If that makes the tail lift go away, then the answer is yes, that may be/have been the first symptom. Horses do not read textbooks about symptoms and diagnoses;...

    After the Vet rules out any liver or kidney problems that might affect feed choice, you will have a better idea. The most likely thing that pops into my mind, since you said his age is 28, is...

    Definitely check with USEF, but I seem to recall that if the horse is registered, the registration number becomes its USEF ID, or can be. Would the previous owner know?

    If the horse regresses, please assume you need more Veterinary workup rather than having a behavior problem. Horses are just not devious. They are, however, honest and should be believed to be...

    It was long past time to go your separate ways. Do not second guess yourself. He seems more like a perpetual child, who may never attain adult maturity.

    Many women wear bras too small in the band size (the part that fastens under the breasts), so try getting a size or two larger next time you buy. I agree on if you can actually find a qualified and...

    My top suspicion is 'kissing spine', sorry cannot remember the official name for it. Get more Veterinary workup done immediately. Stop riding him; he is telling you as emphatically as he can that he...

    I am so sorry. Having recently been in your shoes (figuratively) I know how sucky and sad this is. Pamper him, and explain to him what is going to happen. They know, anyway, but he will appreciate...

    I have had a couple of them over the years. They are very well made, and comfortable. The only cautionary note I can add is, because the seat is relatively deep, you may need a slightly larger seat...

    You have my sympathy and empathy. The replacement farrier needs to pay the Vet bills. Were you present? I cannot help but wonder though, if you were there when the replacement farrier was working on...

    Offer to ride the pony to evaluate the true nature of the situation. That is the quickest way to discover what issues the pony might (or might not) have with contact. Also take a look at the bit they...
