    People have a lot of good ideas re: more diagnostics for this horse. I agree that this sounds like a possible case of EPSM, which is very manageable if that's what it is.

    Would your parents let...

    I've been at places where there was no extra charge, and places where there was.

    I had a four year old horse on stall rest for 9 months (well, stall rest plus hand walks and eventually slow...

    I'm kind of "meh" on the term, but I do believe in the concept. I've owned or leased at least 8 horses, and ridden hundreds on a prolonged basis. The horse I currently own is the only one that I...

    You won't have a problem finding a place to take a mare. You might have a problem finding a place to take a draft.

    Unfortunately, we really don't have a hunting scene to speak of around here. Someone else I know recently moved here from VA and was extremely disappointed with the lack of hunting options. And by...
  6. My horse is always very attuned to seasonal...

    My horse is always very attuned to seasonal changes. As he has gotten a little older (9 now), he's become marginally more rideable when he's very "up" - but still quite the tweaker at times. ...
  7. So are you. And I already thought you were...

    So are you. And I already thought you were pretty bad. Sorry, couldn't resist. You just left yourself wide open for that one. Now I really am done.
  8. Holy cow, people. I'm far from snotty for not...

    Holy cow, people. I'm far from snotty for not wanting someone's moldy tack on mine! Geez!

    Alagirl, you are just looking to be offended, I guess, since your whole little game seems to be about...

    Guys, again, it was a vent. Not really asking for advice. There is zero risk of this person having an issue with me wiping her $30 bridle off that she never uses because she doesn't ride her horse....
  10. Oh, and there is no need to buy saddle soap for...

    Oh, and there is no need to buy saddle soap for her, as there is communal tack soap and other tack cleaning supplies readily available for all to use.
  11. Folks, it's labeled a vent because I'm blowing...

    Folks, it's labeled a vent because I'm blowing off steam. You know, as opposed to asking for advice. It's not that I don't know HOW to handle this, or that I can't do so courteously. It's that I'm...

    And the point about the free computer really isn't comparable. I'm hardly using this space for free - my board is more than $700/mo.
  13. First of all, I don't care that it's not figure...

    First of all, I don't care that it's not figure eight-ed, other than the fact that that plus having two bridles on the same hook is what is causing the moldy one to lay on my bridle all the time. I...
  14. Yeah, I said it was a vent. I work a "more than"...

    Yeah, I said it was a vent. I work a "more than" full time job and manage to keep my tack from being completely moldy. The bridle in question is covered in thick green mold and is touching my tack....
  15. Get your moldy tack away from mine! A vent.

    I board my horse at a nice facility, with nice people and nice horses. In the grand scheme of things, this is minor. But so irritating!

    We keep our bridles in a communal tack room, hanging on...

    In addition to the possible medical issues others have mentioned (I'd definitely have a vet out), I'd consider the possibility that the pony was really terrified about you falling off and is still...

    Do you have any pictures of her being ridden at home? It's hard to tell if she is just a little lit up from being at a show, or if this is just how she goes. I don't care for it at all - she looks...

    Aw, YAY! He sounds super smart and awesome! This is just my kind of horse, seriously!! Once you get him to play for your team, you will be rewarded like you won't believe. Along the way, you will...

    I second Ambitious Kate. My horse is like this too and REALLY needs to be in a lot of work to stay normal. I ride him 6-7 days a week, with at least 1 of those rides a walk only ride. On the days...

    Yeah, you're not supposed to ultrasound right after blocking. I personally wouldn't turn a horse out with a suspensory injury unless I had had an ultrasound that was not performed immediately after...

    I feel obligated to say that I strongly beg to differ regarding Barry Ridge. I had a very poor experience boarding a horse there. The experience was the worst boarding experience I have ever had,...

    Most horses with PSSM/EPSM do not have all the symptoms. What you describe is plenty of symptoms to make it a strong possibility. The hair test only tests for one type of PSSM. The other one...

    I agree with netg that it sounds like your horse might actually be tying up mildly. It's not always as obvious as you would think. Check and see if he is "hard muscled" as well.

    I don't have a...

    I think you are over thinking this. Just teach her how to ride the horse (including the bucks) during her lessons. Offer her whatever additional input you think is appropriate (how frequently the...
