    It's possible that the OP stopped posting because the problem she has is a legal issue.

    I had a conversation with a saddle-fitter who said that many people ride in too narrow saddles and that the pressure on the nerve just behind the withers is such that initially there's pain, but...

    I did initially try to sell it via a Facebook page before I sent it on to the tack store where it is now. I didn't get any bites, but I'm also not the most Facebook savvy person in the world.

    I...

    Thanks for the responses.

    I think I will leave it at the tack shop for a while longer, and see about lowering the price. It also makes sense just to contact the shop to make sure they know that i...
  5. Consigned saddle isn't selling; what would you do?

    I'm keeping the details out of the post so that it won't be construed as an ad.

    I've had a used saddle on consignment with a major tack store that has a significant online selection of used...

    But if the horse is for sale again, they can't (ethically) keep the deposit, given what we know about the transaction.

    If you think they can keep the deposit, then (hypothetically) what would...

    Whether or not there's more to the story, I don't get why an (ethical) seller or agent would take partial payment for a horse without that partial payment actually buying something, such as a certain...

    He looks much better and much perkier. That's great.

    Keep up the good work with him.

    Bumping this up, hoping to get an update on how the horse is responding to the doxy.

    Does he look any better, OP?

    Your horse has a back that is somewhat like my mare's. She is also a TB with more moderate withers (but still prominent), and quite big shoulders and wide around the barrel.

    For a dressage saddle...

    My horse choked twice several years ago, and I found that not all vets take it as seriously as they ought to. (I ended up switching vets because my first vet basically took a very laissez-faire...

    I want to reiterate that Lyme disease can make a horse drop a lot of weight very quickly. Assuming that this horse has been correctly diagnosed with lyme disease, that may be the root of a lot of the...

    You should take a picture of him every day, with him in the same light and standing the same way. This will give you a record of how he looks from day to day so that you can see if he's actually...

    The second time my horse had lyme, she dropped an alarming amount of weight very quickly. She was also lethargic and generally uninterested.

    Once she started on doxy, she began turning around...

    As far as the shivers goes, have you investigated whether it's related to PSSM? If so, a change in diet might help him.

    I guess I'd say that you should try keeping him in light to moderate work...

    I think the problem with giving reasons that are specific to the one client (when the reasons don't involve some obvious violation of the barn rules) is that they invite an argument or discussion.

    I'd agree. For all that people talk about "rein lameness," there really is such a thing as "rein soundness."

    Given what you've reported as the horse's symptoms, I would press the vet to treat with doxy.

    I'd even get another vet if this one won't treat.

    I think I'd want to know why he's quidding. It's not normal for a horse to quid, and it could cause other kinds of health concerrns, such as weight loss and choke.

    So, I'd talk to the vet. It's...

    When were her teeth last done? If it's been longer than 6 months you probably want to have her teeth floated again.

    Ulcers are possible, especially given that she doesn't finish her food. You...

    If the horse was actually panicking, then there is no bit that would have helped.

    To me, and I'm sure you'll get other opinions, it sounds as though the horse has some major holes in her...

    I think the color of the boots is chipmunk, and the leather is oiled leather. So the correct description would be: oiled leather boots in a chipmunk color.

    Roper also makes boots that are listed...

    I'd check again for lyme (not lymes) disease. Behavioral changes, on again off again stiffness and body soreness, these are all classic symptoms.

    Which lyme test did the vet do? You should ask for...
