    What is the pasture like, in terms of grass? Is he eating the grass that's available? Sometimes horses will begin to leave other food if the grass is particularly good.

    I don't know how much experience you have buying saddles, but you might be better off going to a local tack shop that carries used saddles, or looking at an online shop that carries an inventory of...

    You should go ahead and post pictures if you can. I know that you can't always trust what anonymous people on the inter-webs will say (:winkgrin:). But it has consistently amazed me over the years...

    People reading the thread may not be sure of what you're describing exactly. A picture's worth a thousand words and all that.

    What I think she means is that the trim (and shoeing job, if he's shod) are often at fault for making the horse travel in such a way that the back becomes sore.

    As a thought experiment, think...

    Do we know what happened to the horse?

    And I definitely agree, that the deputies were completely out of control. The guy was cuffed on the ground and they were beating the crap out of him.

    A 4 year old TB is still a very young horse. Young both mentally and physically. He probably hasn't finished growing and filling out yet, and he's still acting like pre-teen/early adolescent. (How...

    No, you're not crazy. It's too bad that it all turned out so badly, but you're definitely not crazy for wanting to end the lease immediately. The fact that the woman doesn't recognized what happened...

    For now, I wouldn't change anything about the way she's living (including turnout, feed, whether she's barefoot/shod, how she's shod, etc.). You want to *know* with some degree of certainty whether...

    A lot of people who act that way (mean in packs) are very insecure, and they build up their own sense of who they are by constantly criticizing others. If they do it in a pack they form their own...

    If the new farrier is trying to change the angles of the hooves (which it sounds like he might be), that could easily make a horse sore. Now, if the farrier is justified in wanting to change the...

    I think you should find a boarding situation that is closer to you (if possible), and then ride him as much or as little as you want. You'll be able to check on him more frequently, and perhaps you...

    Seriously, I would have the vet look at him. The vet can evaluate the horse's lameness at all gaits on various surfaces, and then do some radiographs to see what's going on (if the vet feels that...

    The other possibility is that he is not "sound" when he's not trotting on hard ground, it's just that he finds it easier to compensate for whatever pain and/or stiffness he has.

    Your daughter also might benefit from some private lessons, at least for a month or two, to help her get her confidence back. I also agree that she needs an instructor who actually wants to teach her.
