    Nice horse for sure. I live far far away, but would absolutely take a closer look if that wasn't the case.

    Ear plaques CAN be treated, and I have seen nasty ones cured. Only snag is that the ears will be more painful before they resolve, which could make them more ear-shy for a bit. Sometimes easiest just...

    You can treat the ear plaques. Will take $ and time, though, so I wouldn't take on the hassle unless I really liked the horse and there was a substantial reduction in its price.

    The horse's poor quadriceps development makes its hind end structure look weaker than it is. I assume she is not in work. That muscle will fill in quickly once she is.

    P.S. Thank you so much for...

    This horse looks cute and correct in the provided photos; from the second photo it looks as though she would carry herself well and be a cute mover. She looks tiny, but I assume you are also given...

    I have been wanting to try this saddle for a while. It has been impossible because the 17.5" forward-flap wide-tree version has been back-ordered for like 1.5 years.

    In general sustained inability to sell a horse at a given price is a sign that the price is too high. Is it possible that you are overestimating his value? I think a free lease for a good junior...

    All race track farriers do NOT trim for long toes and low heels as you often see claimed. Even when excellent farriery is provided TBs tend to collapse and wear their heels. Part of it is somewhat...

    Really? I don't like to think of CANTER volunteers editing out photos that show conformational flaws. I think of them primarily as advocates for the horse rather than agents for the seller, and...

    Hugs! I am heartbroken for you - I have been there, done that, and shared your disappointment. The good news is that Arty may respond great to hock injections and go right back to being his fabulous...

    If I lived in TX I would certainly seek more info on this horse. Can't speak to his true forelimb conformation based on the photos provided, and he gives me the impression he may be off in the RF...

    Opposite situation here - the horses are all crazy-high and frisky at -20 - 25C. Footing in the turnouts is nice and snowy versus icy, so everyone's feeling loony and running around like mad things....

    Yes, I think she has a nice quiet 9-year-old named Rockin Fun for sale. No idea of pricing, but a very solid gentleman that looks like exactly what you need. Go get him!

    Does this mean that you think the saddles with special cutback panels (Prestige D1 etc) do not offer anything extra in this respect?

    I asked about a custom black version a while back and was told they could not do it for this particular saddle. Curious who told you that they could?

    Thanks for clarifying. Where I come from this is "taking a cross", while bridging implies both taking the cross and also resting/bracing hands on the neck.

    I like to use a neckstrap for the same...
  17. I don't like bridging reins for regular flat work...

    I don't like bridging reins for regular flat work as it tips me forward and messes with my position.

    Or do those of you that like this just cross the reins and not rest your hands on the neck as...

    +1 McNasty
    No rational creature will go a second round with that stuff. Requires careful use, but is very effective!

    To answer the OP's original question, yes gabapentin can cause horses to become quiet or slightly sedated when it is administered at high doses.

    Personally I think the idea of using kinesiotape to help recognize when you are crooked or collapsing on one side sounds great. I have never tried this so I have no clue whether or not it would work,...

    A few episodes at the mounting block do not make the horse a rogue, but given your injuries I strongly recommend that you use a professional trainer to address this problem. Your health and...
