    From what I have heard, they are trying to bring horses through it, if they can. If they make it past the worst, they can live comfortably, although they may never be ridable again because strong...

    I'm not the official updater, but according to Facebook she is off the ventilator with a tracheotomy, able to sit up a little bit and responding to those around her. Seems to be well on the road to...

    Time and work should help. My horse's canter didn't really start coming together until he was 6 and even then, towards the end of that "year." It just took him that long to figure out how to use his...

    THere are different types of level 2 Mylers. Some are simply snaffles. Some use hooks or are a more western-type shape to provide leverage. If it is the former, it shouldn't be too much because it is...

    As someone who lives in sunny (aka. soggy) Florida, I know the joy of keeping shoes on during the monsoon season. You have to put them out during the day and bring them in at night so they aren't...

    It sounds like the horse isn't bad or nasty. He simply isn't broke. He isn't broke on the ground and it is probably reasonable to assume he isn't particularly broke under saddle either. I would send...

    Assuming there is nothing physical, I order ye to the round pen!

    The horse has to learn that go means go forward. Not stop, not go up, not kick out. The round pen is a good place to do this...

    When you tried the gel, how long did you wait and are you sure you gave enough. Also, you have to put it under their tongue, not simply in their mouth like a wormer. You then have to wait 40 minutes...

    There are far better things to worry about than whether a leaser says "mine" or "my horse." So long as she ultimately respects that legally the owner is the owner, the fact that she loves the horse...

    You have spent hundreds/thousands on vets but haven't tried the hind shoes, the one thing the vets have pointed to that might help? Move him if you have to and put some shoes on him and see what...

    I find a brand I like the fit of for my horse and stick with that. My horse now is a Weatherbeeta because they give lots of room in the shoulders and fit him very nicely.

    AirForceWife brings up a good point. I think people looking at buying young, green horses need to know that it isn't always a smooth ride. And honestly, getting a good ride or two before buying isn't...

    For those who live in bells, do you have to replace them every month? My horse went through a couple periods of shoe pulling. When I first got him and his feet were shaped like saucers (took about 6...

    As a kid, I rode at a barn where everyone had the same trainer/set of trainers and was drilled in ring ettiquette by the trainer/bo who ruled with an iron fist. So it was definitely eye opening to go...

    5 is young, so that is a little different. However, I started riding at about 9 and after my first couple months, my parents always dropped me off and came back later, not because they were "dumping...

    I am in an HMO. Now, it is group insurance and it isn't Anthem, but the HMO has links to BCBS for emergency medical needs outside Florida. My mom is on the exact same...

    I remember fondly my childhood blue suede chaps that, when I wore them with my shorts, they turned my legs blue. I looked like my parents beat me daily on my legs. :)

    Really though, it is "only" a $50 difference. For that small a difference, I would go with full leather rather than suede and leather. Once the suede wears down it gets slick.

    Well, mine were the Tredstep Deluxe, which I think may fall between the Liberty and the G2s for price point. They were great chaps that lasted for many years. My only complaint was the stupid...

    With my tredsteps, I got the best fit by buying what I could just barely get on. After about a week of cursing, you'll have a perfect fit.
