    Since you're the one whose appalling lapse of judgment apparently initiated this unsuspecting lad into both the Lesser AND Greater Arcana of jumping 2', surely you realize you must take lifetime...

    Why they end up at auctions is desperate people need quick cash.

    THIS^. Tell me something: Would you pay a mechanic to fix your car, 25% of the way? Or a hairdresser to cut and dye 25% of your hair? Or a private tutor to teach you 25% of a foreign language?

    What I'm seeing in this thread is an enormous, just ENORMOUS, trend toward people minding everyone else's business, and among their assumptions they seem to claim either superior knowledge or moral...

    Wonder how much of this is perimenopause rather than concussions. Hormonal changes can make some people into WEREWOLVES.

    Maybe self-awareness could lead to better self-control . . . ?

    Nah! ...

    Yeah, "entirely physical" is as may be. But for an awful lot of people, turning a $50.00 lame or insane screw into a $5,000.00 screw gets you the same goose-egg in the end. Opting out of throwing a...

    The dewy-eyed idealism of a sheltered undergrad won't actually get you very far in the real world.

    Because, that's not the way the real world WORKS.

    You won't be on the "right side of history"...

    This piece of run-on silliness and TMI just PERSONIFIES the circling-the-drain shark-jumping phenomenon that COTH Forums has become. As in self-parody.

    There was a time when a lot of serious,...

    It's also possible the horse in the show wasn't really 30.

    I'd say that if he was going well, not visibly lame, exhausted, or struggling, the people who know him best should be left to manage him...

    I have known several horses who were kept in daily work trail hacking, and were regulars on the Hunter Pace circuit right up through age 30--one of them I owned and he packed my non-lightweight Dad...

    Back in the 70's, the riding school my great-uncle ran had around 30 horses, who ranged in age from 10 or so up to 30+. The "elders" were used for pre-beginner up-downer lessons being ponied from...

    There are a lot of "weasel words" associated with the dietary supplement industry, for both pets and people. Any time you're seeing "supports," "aids," "helps protect" or "may promote," put the...

    Where I come from, NUTHIN' gets on the trailer until paid in full and the check clears--NO BLINKIN' WAY. Until that point, you don't have a "deal." The option of PPE etc. is theirs.

    Horses are property, and they have monetary value and fall under property law. Full stop.

    That's how the law is going to see it, and as others have said, a theft conviction has grave...

    "Watch and see" is a great real-world policy. Or as my grandfather used to say, "It'll either get better, or it'll get worse." At which point, you'll have more to work with for an assessment.

    Unless this is a trial plot for a children's story (and that's sure been done), this OP comes off as a troll attempt, frankly.

    Not necessarily. "Popping hip syndrome" can happen both in the front at the hip flexor, where you feel it in the groin, and also over the trochanteric bursa on the outside. VERY common in runners,...
