    If you don't mind, would you also post your general area and the highest level that your instructor has ridden/shown? Thanks!

    Do you have any passiers available there? I really do still think that they will be a solution for you. I own a similar horse. The passier tree has very short points. You can find one narrow...

    Does anyone have this saddle?

    http://www.classicsaddlery.com/closeouts/consignments.htm - the first one (synthetic dressage)

    I'd love to hear firsthand from anyone who owns one. Thanks!

    purplnurpl, he is trained with a spur stop. It has been frustrating for both of us that what means go in my language means stop in his, but we're getting there.

    I've added lunging in Vienna...

    For those who have ridden with Britta, would you recommend her for a low level rider with a "non-dressage-y" mount? There is a fairly local clinic opportunity that is being advertised to all levels...

    sabinomare, I've been kicking around the idea of doing some longe work with side reins or Vienna reins, to get him used to the concept of contact without me on his back. He is a lot more forward on...

    excellent points exploding pony. When I say I'm asking for extension down the long side, I'm definitely not talking about an extended trot, but pushing him out of his shuffle/jog into a true trot...

    It can take a while for the choke to resolve, which as others have said, is why they often have another episode (or really a continuing episode) after the initial choke. Maybe ask your vet if it...

    No worries atlatl, I was just trying to convey that my horse is the type of western pleasure show horse that has the suspensionless shuffling jog that doesn't track up and the disunited lope that...

    Completely agree atlatl, which is why I specified that he is a western pleasure show horse, show being the operative word. What the rulebook says the ideal is and what is in the ring are two...

    I also have a shark-fin wither on a propane-tank conformation horse. You have my sympathies.

    I had a Jaguar by Harry Dabbs that fit him very well. I think that tree has flared points to...
  12. Favorite exercises for those who have converted western pleasure show horses

    I'd love to hear suggestions from those of you who have switched a western pleasure show horse to dressage.

    I'd love to introduce some poles and cavaletti to get him to pick up his feet. I...

    This advice will be wildly unpopular, but with my prone-to-choke horse, withholding ALL feed/hay for 24 hours was very important. I know, it seems like torture, but there can be a lot of...

    It's totally fine to take your unconditioned, unfit horse who has been sitting all winter on a 4 hour trail ride. I mean, it's mostly just walking.

    You can feed your horse straight corn. It...

    LOL TheJenners, at least the twitch is an option with the horses. You don't know how many times I've wanted to break one out for my human children at medication time!

    Thanks for the education...

    Ok, so adult strongyles are in the intestines, but the earlier stages circulate elsewhere in the body. I remember something about the powerpac being effective against more stages of the strongyles...

    Does anyone Powerpac anymore?

    I have read on bulletin boards that encysted strongyles are resistant to fenbendazole even at the 5 day double dose. Is this confirmed in any scientific studies? I have a horse who I want to treat...

    We didn't find one in the pasture, but that was a thought. He's at the vet hospital to try to get a handle on the hives and to monitor for founder, cellulitis, and any other possible complications.
  24. Hives and edema in the legs..update: leukoclastic vasculitis

    My horse presented with hives over a week ago. His turnout buddy also had them, so we are guessing something in his/their pasture. They are the only 2 on the farm who had hives. The other horse's...
