    The comments about the upright shoulder are bizarre to me - horses with upright shoulders typically jump very, very well. While horses with more laid-back shoulders may move with a longer stride, it...

    I absolutely love the Kastel shirt I just got- by far the coolest I've worn or tried on. However, I think the SPF is only 30.

    Loved my Chiberta, best thing I ever sat in. Destroyed my horse's back... the horse it was "custom" fitted for.

    You may want to check out Stubben- they have a new line of high-end saddles,...

    If you read the article closely, it *does* include people who are OTC users, in addition to prescription users. Also as noted in the article, they used multiple databases to control for health...
  5. Proton pump inhibitors linked to heart attacks in humans -- including Omeprazole

    Just came across this link on the Washington Post. In light of the equine cardiac events from the past 10 years, and the common use of gastroguard/blue pop rocks during this time, makes me wonder if...

    I read all the posts in this thread, and with all of the talk of integrity (or lack thereof), does anyone else find it somewhat ironic that the initial post links to the webpage "ahmedzayat.com" with...

    Sell. Sometimes a horse does something, even just a little something, that doesn't bother anyone else, or that no one else even really notices, but just sets your nerve-endings and anxiety on fire....

    There's Piedmont Equine in Middleburg, as well as Kent Allen and crew at Virginia Equine Imaging. Can't go wrong with either one.

    I've ridden in big show barns on both coasts, and with rare exception, the horses are treated like gold and get everything they need to be happy and healthy. While some barns are road warriors, the...

    Ooohhh, are they using the track that runs through the trees back into the little meadow between TBF's barn and the XC field? That is my very favorite part of the horse park :)

    I have worked in digital media for many years now, and am convinced that the internet may be the worst thing that ever happened to society. It provides a bully pulpit for the willfully ignorant to...

    Probably the best place to send a nice horse to get sold for good money in NorCal is Tarrone Seaton and Gilien Pearson at Pheasant Grove.

    Pertaining to this situation? Really, sevendogs, do you ever, EVER know when to give it a rest?

    Did you watch the video? It's nothing like Le Samurai, it's an incredibly subtle change to the way the horse already paddled at the canter. Nothing about it looked, or probably felt, anything close...

    +1. Denny's page is an echo chamber of his own views, and only his views, where he conveniently forgets just how hard eventing was on horses in his heyday. Things could certainly be better now, but I...

    Went through this with a wide-broad-shouldered horse. CWD literally couldn't (or wouldn't) make a saddle wide enough, they tried twice. Ended up with a Voltaire Palm Beach second skin wide tree, it...

    Amen. I for, one, am still wondering why people are pining for the old long format "galloping" days, which evidenced by this video I dug up of the world championships at Lexington in 78, had more...

    She has a great canter, and when she isn't pulling and fussing to the jump, she actually jumps fairly slow off the ground with good knees. When the balance and distance are there, I can really see...

    By all reliable accounts, AN is a bitchy prima donna with vicious temper. Like others, I'd suspect there is a lot more to this story, and it isn't about horse welfare.

    No- depends on whether the judges think the rail was due to the riding. The rest of the trip was so much better than anyone else I've seen, so they may overlook it.

    I'd probably get a second opinion- what used to be diagnosed as lameness from sidebone is now usually diagnosed as an injury to the deep tendons/ligaments that extend into the hoof capsule. These...

    Just because someone is the horse show farrier at the big shows doesn't actually make them a good farrier... doesn't take all that much skill to tack shoes back on, and the really good farriers...

    Before continuing to malign the US riders and their conditioning, I'd suggest watching a few of the videos of the whole course. The footing is atrocious between the jumps. Since it seems that many...

    Completely agreed. I would have used both Sinead and Kim ahead of Lynn and Buck, and said so on Thurs, so it isn't hindsight. Sinead had our best international finish in many many years at Burghley,...
