    I would be aware that the mat sitting with its edges exposed could be rucked up creating problems. I hope the back edge is well secured. A curved rubber bumper would be nice.

    I'm assuming you are using the neck as an injection site. You can also use the gluteal muscles. In either case, I remove the needle from the syringe, handling carefully so as not to contaminate it....

    Not only that, they seem just as prone to IR, as their more cold blooded buddies. That said, most horses while they will happily gradually become obese, I have never seen any engage in gorging.

    Some top horses get ridden twice a day. One a training work out, the second a cross-training work out. It also helps them mentally to know that just because they have been ridden, they aren't done...

    As for,"If only this team had access to a good saddle fitter and vet, the scores would be 100%!" I will have Edward get on it right away....

    As far as I know numnahs or any sort of saddle pad was frowned upon in the 60's. Saddles were cleaned daily. Jockeys (pronounced jaw-key) were really frowned on.

    Jockeys are the accumulation of...

    You develop a sixth sense, and hope it stays with you.

    Giving it the benefit of the doubt.

    You have already made a statement to her about schedules, and timing. It seems boring I know, but keep repeating what you said before. Some people are slow...
