    Pass. The horse is 3 years old and hasn't really done too much, hasn't even raced, and he's had three months to rest and recuperate, and he's still lame and has poor flexions in one leg. I retrain...

    IMO a per show lease should be proportionately more, so don't just calculate a fraction of a yearly or monthly lease. A lease for one show might be worth a months worth or half a months lease--or...

    There is nothing wrong with being very picky about who you will and won't trail ride with. There are plenty of folks out there like NancyM's "friends". Just say no and proceed on with your life. I'm...

    I agree, don't do it. It's not worth the risk. The best trainer in the world won't do your horse any good if he injures himself and isn't sound enough to work. HH put it really well, you don't owe...

    I had no idea, this is interesting information. I will second the uvex, it's a nice helmet. Samshield is also nice. Still, buy what best fits your head. If you have a round head, you are going to...

    I hate those darn hook and eye closures, too. The backings of the closures on every pair dig into my stomach too. It helps to keep a shirt tucked in underneath them. But--what are the other options?...

    Magnesium chloride is great for indoor arenas. It probably would get expensive for an outdoor because it does wash away. A possible cheaper option would be calcium chloride, which will also wash...

    Yeah, the hunter pad is pretty much invisible when you use it with a regular white fitted pad in the hunter ring. I personally wouldn't buy one for every day use--it wouldn't look right with a baby...

    I didn't at all mean to be negative towards you--I was hoping I was doing you a favor by being blunt about it.

    Ok, I would be seriously annoyed if a seller didn't mention an obviously visible flaw like that. I'm sorry, but I think it would be safe to assume that the seller was hoping you and the vet would...

    What kind of crazy person has a nice Dutch horse and then won't pull its mane? What could their reasons possibly be?

    Proper turnout for a local show or a pony club rally would be a pulled mane, about 4 inches long. If your horse has a thin mane, and you don't plan to braid in the future, a solo comb job might work...

    Where grading to help with water drainage issues is concerned, I strongly recommend using a professional. With the issues you were and are having, it sounds like you really need one anyway.
