    I've never owned a custom saddle, and never intend to. But there is a big difference between "custom" and "magic saddle that fits every horse."
    Sorry, just don't buy it. I don't honestly think it's...

    Jim Yanchusis, http://www.eqvet.com.
    Has fixed, as my local vet says, a lot of broken horses.

    Mine too - very experienced (like, Olympic team vet) - in that night, back out full time, then gently back to work over the next few days.

    I used Mark Donaldson a year ago and couldn't have been happier. I was there but had to be on a conference call during the clinical portion. He checked in with me before starting films and was very...

    This is what you get when "giant" becomes "normal" :lol:
    All my reins are extra longs now after the comical moment when I was hacking in those "regular" reins to dressage, and stopped to talk to...

    Reins do come in different lengths - I once bought a pair to use in competition (thus breaking the "never use new equipment at a show" rule)...put them on only to discover they were WAY too short for...

    It can be hard to keep everyone's perspective in mind. One year we didn't have portapots within a few minute walk from stadium warmup...our warmup steward and in gate guy finally made a dash across...

    It might be worth it to ask around and see if there is someplace to leave your horse out for the night. Mine live out and when I went to the AECs years ago, I was able to find a great (COTHer) place...

    No knowledge but I think it would be a crime to waste this weather :winkgrin:

    Generally speaking, I'm with GotSpots. I paid for the X-rays for a decision I was making. Once that decision is made, the X-rays are useless to me if I don't buy the horse. It costs me nothing and...

    I hope you keep him. He is not just uber-cute but clearly rather fancy as well. What more could you want than a partner who is fun, capable and has a forelock like that?

    I've rehabbed bilateral high hind suspensories and a branch tear.
    Lots of good advice already.
    I would also recommend shockwave.

    Draft crosses have perhaps more variability than other types because their breeding (as a group) is all over the map.

    All I can add is that when I had to out my horse down due to a pasture accident a number of years ago, EMO paid me his fully insured mortality value without question. He had not competed in several...

    Could I respectfully suggest that you sent him to someone who did not abide by your requests and seems to have been both impatient and unsympathetic?
    Not "an event type." A bad rider.

    Assuming the pasture is good and well maintained, yes, that is pretty normal if they are out full time.
