    Yes, I've found such ticks on both my horse and dogs. My horse has had lyme disease twice and been treated for it (and made a recovery) twice. (Actually she was treated three times, but the third...

    Just out of curiosity: have you ever tried a leather bit with the horse? I don't have any personal experience with a leather bit but there was a COTH thread on them a while ago:...

    I like Ocean Surge. Very intelligent looking, sweet, nice walk (that's all that was on the video).

    One thing you might try is a Micklem bridle; if you use it with the bit and with the bit clips it will keep the bit up off the bars a bit. And it is legal for dressage I believe (but you'd probably...

    I would also wonder about pain issues. One easy trial would be to give the horse some bute before the next farrier visit, and have the horse stand on stall mats rather than on concrete.

    Why did...

    You seem to be concerned that the horse's hoof is white, but that's completely normal.

    I like Durasole as well, but you might also consider putting boots on him for the first week or so that he's barefoot. Easyboots now make a boot specifically for horses whose shoes have just been...

    Paypal is the way to go I think. Yes, you'll pay a small fee, but it's worth it for the protection.

    I'd also takes lots of photos of the saddle before it goes on trial so that you'll be able to...

    Without being snarky, I think the answer is, "how much rehab do you want to put into the horse?"

    I had a somewhat similar situation, although my mare was 18 and a TB. But she was fit, I rode her 4...
