    Materiale classes - questions

    My trainer has suggested that I get my 3 year old out toa show as a non-compete horse this summer or fall. She thinks it would be good to school in the warm up, let her see the sights, etc. This mare...

    Well, it would be good if you can do some cross-training and not just drill on ringwork. Add cavaletti's into one session a week. Do some trot sets out on the trails. Add a 20-30 minute walk in...

    I agree that you don't have to allow a trial for a young, green horse. But, you may want to bring the horse to a schooling location that is convenient for you, or have perspective buyers come watch...

    BIG shout out and thank you to TruColours!!! :) :) Through her, we were able to make contact with the shipper and things are getting pushed back a day---but we now know that all horses are...

    TrueColours: Yes---it is Doyles we are using. It makes me feel much better to hear that they are a legit business and horseman. The horse that has been at their place is only 2 years old and his...

    Oh my gosh--TrueCoulours---thank you so much for your offer. I may email you tomorrow if I don't hear anything from them. I am totally fine if they need to delay shipment for a week or so---I just...
  7. Professional shippers - are they all this bad at responding / communicating?

    Ugh---I am getting very anxious about the shipper I am dealing with. Long story short--my friend and I both purchased horses in Ontario. I have my own rig, but everyone told us that it's much...

    I manage to keep one horse in 6 days / week of work, the 2nd in light work (3-4 days). My 2nd horse is near retirement, so the rides are pretty much focused on "moseying" around to keep her...

    How sad--what a loss! I only met Seema a few times, but she gave so much back to the sport! I remember her being the TD for events and very active in trying to find creative ways to get more people...

    ^ THIS is the sort of stuff that has me envisioning us sitting at customs, for hours, with 2 very young horses in the trailer! Neither of which is an experienced traveler. And that would be after...

    A lot of people stay in Peterborough and I believe you can take a train to Stamford from there. And there are some B&B's and other options in Stamford--but they probably are pretty booked up for...

    Slamdunk---what are "Permanent export papers" ---where do we get those?

    Jealoushe---not that I plan to lie about the price--but do we need to bring some sort of "receipt" from the seller that...
  13. Getting newly purchased horses across the border (Canada to US)

    I did something completely stupid and bought another horse! I'm blaming the (currently) strong US dollar for my lack of restraint! ;) Pending a good PPE of course. But the horses (um, my friend...

    Yes! If you can swing it--it's worth it to get the members tickets. That gives you closer parking (if you are renting a car) and entry into the members area (where there are lovely food choices,...

    It might be good for this horse to be ridden more (as long as the riders are fairly good and are not undoing any training). It's good for the drafty types to be more fit otherwise they can become...

    I know this isn't your question--but I just have to pipe in on this. I think it's sad that the owners are putting you in a corner by saying, "if you don't take this horse, we will sell him". How...

    While it's not the easiest---or the cheapest--you can find the area that is inflamed in the back with a bone scan. If the problem is in the joints--the bone scan will identify that. If it just...

    An SI injection will also not help if your horse has a tear or injury to the ligaments around the SI joint. Injections help with bony involvement---they don't heal ligament fibers. So you really...

    Oh no--that stinks. Poor guy. Hope everything heals up and is a non-issue long term. My younger horse showed up bloody at the gate the day before her 2nd event_ever. She and another horse had...

    I would try a small hole hay net. It keeps them busy working at something, slows down hay intake, and there is less chance they will become fatties while on stall rest.

    I have also done what Scubed (and others) have mentioned. Play around with riffs on the barn name, or the pedigree and see if you can find something that you like. Although my last horse's pedigree...

    Yep---exactly. I'm used to the holes back towards the heel vs. actually "in" the swedge/groove.
