    Do I always wear a helmet? No. But I do want a new one especially for competition. While I don't necessarily believe riders should be forced to wear helmets, I do know there is no legitimate reason...

    I feed Renew Gold which has flax in it, but typically for whole flax you feed no more than 1 cup.

    He's kept in a small run so it's not like he has much room to hurt himself, but he is a horse so I suppose it's possible. He had been fine then one day BAM I was brushing him and he dropped his back...

    My barn manager's wife does some massage/chiro. Do you think that's worth a shot in the meantime?

    Well it's still not changing. I have talked to my vet but seeing as she is an hour away and I don't have a trailer, I'm still waiting for her to get to town to check him out. At this point, it...

    This video is an excellent example of why people have issues with western pleasure. I find it even worse than rolker in the dressage world. In similar warmup ring videos you'll probably see a...

    I don't ride pleasure horses. The extremely slow and unnatural paces are uncomfortable to watch. I'm now a mounted shooter but have ridden dressage, huntseat, and reining/pleasure horses in the past....

    I was going to suggest a meleta brown (her new tree) but you definitely won't be finding one for $800! Maybe you could find a used Lynn McKenzie Nueva or wide. There might be some more trail-specific...

    Not really, just lightly ridden. He's gone at least 3 months with no major issues. Someone mentioned hind gut acidosis as a possibility. He did go from being on a round bale 24/7 to only getting fed...

    Any info on this feed?

    Recently found out about Squaremeal feeds. Very interesting concept! My barn only feeds hay twice a day (which I don't like) and I don't like to feed grain. One of my horses gets Renew Gold, but the...

    Hadn't thought of the hooves. My farrier is very experienced but my vet's husband is a farrier so I can Getty a second opinion.

    You could try the OHS, but I'll also recommend Renew Gold. It's a feed but you only feed 1 to 1 1/2lbs a day. It's made with coconut oil, flax, and stabilized rice bran. This makes it high fat, low...

    Lower Back Soreness

    3 days ago I went out to the barn to try my shiny new saddle on my boy and as I was brushing him, he practically folded in half when I touched his back. If I touch his lower back area with any...

    So the seven is less severe than the flat shank? Ok. I did find that it's 1/4" longer than the flat shank. Does that make a difference.

    Western Myler Bits

    Is there a difference in severity between the "seven shank" and the "flat shank "? I can't seem to find measurements or the purpose of each shank.

    I've never ever seen it happen. I hate curb straps on snaffles. They're a pain. English riders don't think about it as much because the noseband should keep the horse from opening his mouth enough to...

    When I bought my mare for weeks the first thing I did every day was grab my pointy tweezers and water bottle and pick ticks. There's not much you can do other than put on bug spray that repels ticks.
