    Turnout 24/7 and a great deal of patience will help

    A fellow boarder at my barn has an 18h+ Dutch warmblood. He's on a special diet, vitamin E, gets 24/7 turnout and is in regular work. His shivers definitely increase when he's worried or nervous. ...

    I have severe arthritis with some wicked bone spurs in the L4-L6 area. I went through a period where the spurs would "catch" and I couldn't straighten up. Physical therapy using balance balls to...

    Toasty Toes for abcesses. After soaking, dry hoof, apply your favorite drawing agent and put a Toast Toes on top of that, wrap as usual. The heat from them is enough to help the drawing agent, but...
  19. County

    Hate to say it, but sounds to me like you're dealing with a saddle REP and NOT a true saddle fitter. They are not always the same.

    Another thumbs up for County saddles. I rode in a County...
