    I've had too many mishaps to count, but here are a few:

    1) Before a big western horsemanship class, I was waiting at the in gate for my turn when my chestnut mare decides today isn't the day she's...

    I've had a couple of times where I slit a critter's throat with a knife when it called for it. Pretty quick death.

    I have hit the dirt more times than I care to remember, but usually the saddle had nothing to do with injuries. Most of the time, my injuries came in the form of what I landed on/against...such as a...

    In the pictures, it looks like you have the saddle girth tightened? Try just setting the saddle up there without putting the girth on, and then run your hand underneath. If you have the cinch...

    I agree with Supershorty. It is glucose and glycogen that causes energy. In turn, fat harbors the ability to break down into sustaining energy over a long period of time. Also, a fit horse will...

    I have never owned or showed an arab, but they are my favorite horses to watch when it comes to western pleasure classes. They are still slow movers, but it looks so much prettier and pleasurable to...

    I think your best bet would be to get the vet out there and take some cultures. I have seen a case similar to what you described. The horse had something called purpura hemorrhagica where large...

    I think horsemanship skills can never be overvalued, and it's a great idea. Maybe go over the reasons 'why' you want to do things certain ways and not just the 'how'. Go over the actual functions...
