    Yep, start late. Took my new guy to his first 50 this past weekend and we were *at least* 5 minutes late if not more. Most people, especially the late starters in the back with you, are pretty...

    Guess some missed it. I had back surgery. I've had this problem since I had a near-death motorcycle accident in 2010. Been in PT since then. Was just trying to get saddle suggestions. If I could...

    Calling saddle gurus....

    So I had pretty significant back surgery (2 level fusion with hardware) in Feb 2013. Due to that, I have a permanent weakness in my right foot. I ride endurance and after about 10-12 miles my lean...

    Yeah, my spony was degenerative aggravated by a motorcycle wreck. 80%+ slip L5/S1. Asked for permission to do a 25 mile endurance ride at 3 months. Was told absolutely not. ;) We all progress...
  5. DVT peeps...anyone research or think about doing compression therapy?

    I've had my 2nd DVT in as many years, they are talking about doing life-long blood thinners. That doesn't thrill me. Went to the PT yesterday and he got a new Game Ready unit. Used it on my back,...
  6. Anyone ever ship a saddle from UK to US?

    UPS isn't working correctly, but FedEx shows about $350 to ship from UK to me in AZ. Seriously? Anyone know of a *slightly* less expensive way? And before anyone asks, it's eBay, yes, I know it...

    Years???? No boot will last that long if you ride your horse more than once in each of those years. I get about 400-500 miles out of mine. I ride endurance (back to back to back 50's)

    Polyglycan--IV or IM??

    My vet told me it was a waste if it was given IM, but I know ALOT of people that give it IM and swear by it.

    Thoughts? Experience? I actually am ok giving it IV, but I'd like to know if I can't...

    I think it's kind of dependent on what exactly was done in the back. I've followed this post, but can't remember who had what done. I had S1/L5 L5/L4 fused with hardware at those levels and an...

    I had a 17.2H Dutch gelding that was a PITA to load. My dressage trainer told me about her natural horsemanship trainer (trained under Buck Brannaman) as *I* didn't have the patience nor enough...

    How about a doc who could do a uterine ablation? I had endo, had an ablation, bye-bye cramps (and period!). Of course, if you want kids, you can't do this, but this was a life saver for me!
  13. Best all-around schooling gloves for *hot* weather

    I've used the SSG all weather and the Ariat Air Grip. I tended to like the Ariat better. Before buying another pair, thought I'd put feelers out to see if there are any others I should try. I...

    Didn't work for me. It KILLED my legs, so I bought fenders. Made it even worse. Didn't work for the horse either. Had back issues, so at a ride I found a "professional" Specialized saddle fitter....

    Thanks Kitt!! Yes, I used Nancy for the Equinox I have now (which is too wide). And duh, I should have known better to realize the mold would be just a static fit. Great, I'll check out her page!
  16. Armchair saddle fitters, do you think the "equi-molds" are worth it??

    There are a variety of back molding type models, such as EQUI-measure, out there. Has anyone actually used these? If so, would you use it again?

    I normally just do wither tracings and photos,...

    Vent away....I have so much more empathy (and sympathy!) ever since my wreck (motorcycle accident in 2010, 9 various surgeries later). Up until that, I had been perfectly healthy (nothing major...

    GotGait, I feel for you. Is it nerve pain? If this Benfotiamine works, I'll let you know. I also am still taking narcotics on top of the Gaba.

    Interesting comments about the migraines. I have not suffered from them since taking Gabapentin. I'm on 2400mg/day and still have terrible nerve pain, hence the question of the Benfotiamine, which...
  22. Anyone know of studies about the impact riders take at a posting trot?

    Back doc thinks I flop around like a 50 pound bag of potatoes, so I'm trying to find "evidence" that it isn't what she thinks. The core stabilizes and "assists" as we sit our post. But how do you...

    Just used Cross Country shippers out of Texas. Horse was delivered 2 days ago in great shape. The drivers were great too!
  24. Severe nerve pain...anyone ever try Benfotiamine?

    Tired of taking narcotics. Anyone ever hear of or take Benfotiamine? Had back surgery 9 weeks ago and this darn nerve pain is the only thing slowing me down!
