    hock injections

    Hi,

    My young horse is having his hocks injected -- 1.5 lame on left hock, that was the vet recommendation. He is big, over 17.1, and injury-prone. The barn manager recommends two days of...

    "This is the problem. Horses look healthy, and even happy."

    You say "the problem is," this horse as happy and healthy. Why is that a problem? It's actually a huge indicator that the problems...

    ch-ch-change

    The fancier barn is nice but there are over 40 horses and the BM/trainer is more involved with folks in the lesson/training program. Daily workers/daily care is stellar -- clean stall, fresh water...

    Thanks all. We're finding that getting a day off seems to exacerbate the stiff/clunkiness. While I don't think daily riding is the answer, or even lunging (not a fan), I'm trying powerwalks in hand.

    big horse, slow warmup

    Does anyone else have a horse that is like this?

    I'm working with a 17.1, 8 years old Oldenburg. When ridden, it takes him at least 20 minutes to "unfurl" -- starts out stiff and clunky -- like a...

    Well, turnout half-days and ridden 5 days a week for about 30-40 minutes -- just w-t-c but fairly "balls to the walls,"with few breaks, plus cooldown and warmup time. We had a clinician ride him...
  8. TC complete or nutrena performance

    I was considering complete or nutrena performance (pink bag) which has high fat and fiber. I've started him on ultium and we'll see how that goes.

    He's in a good training program which has made...
  9. no fire in the belly -- feeding for more energy?

    My 7yo super laid back dressage horse has been getting a ration balancer (Progressive), supps, and hay. He is willing, but so quiet that it's hard to get the energetic movement that's rewarded in...

    My custom saddle took six months to finish and I too asked them to copy a particular saddle -- and it did not fit when it arrived. That's a 7K saddle we're talking about. We tried to make...

    My NQR horse seemed pretty willing, floppy-eared, pleasant expression but NQR in a very subtle way. Showed successfully, but it was kind of a rein-lame, real lame, question mark. Decided to put him...

  13. Experience with Good Apple Equine in Ocala

    They have a consignment saddle that I found online -- before I hand over my cc info, has anyone heard of them? I received a callback/voicemail after my inquiry (British accent!), but when I tried to...

    Thanks -- I may splurge and go for that price range -- is there anything at all in the 200-300 dollar range?

    verhan saddles

    Hi,

    I have been looking at Verhan saddles -- found one that fits my horse well (on loan from another boarder). I've noticed that many are short-flapped, and I'm quite tall. Is there something...

    hydration and the colicking horse

    Hi,

    This is a post-emergency question -- my horse colicked last week and I have moved to a different region and use a new vet. My old vet would do a subcutaneous or IV bag to keep horses hydrated...

    Thanks All! EH, can you embellish a bit on what exactly this means? I assume it means that you don't schlump with your weight coming entirely through your seat, but that you support your own weight...
  21. horse forward with other riders; with owner not so much

    What are some reasons that a horse would be willing and forward with accomplished/pro riders, but tends to be very "stuck" resistant with the amateur/owner? This is not a problem with the horse --...

    not for 'curing' but for treating symptoms.

    The thought of barrel racing a navicular horse is a bit troublesome. It's understood that it's not a cure. My understanding of the drug is that only about 3% is systemic, the rest is "at the...

    I just read a post on a barrel racing forum that surpass is used on the bulbs of the horse's heels to help with navicular. My understanding of Surpass is that it works best on joints that are close...
