    Which joint in the hock? It makes a big difference to know where the lesion is. I have seen "career ending" cysts resolve with one injection and last years and other injections do very little. It...

    Because this thread is about lameness, not critiques of the horse's quality. None of our horses are perfect or without conformational limitations, so unless it's related to the soundness issue at...

    He needs to learn to stretch and seek the bit downward. Start by giving a little, if he lowers to follow the bit give lots of praise. If his head comes up, put him back on the bit, and a little more...

    Many people are interested in identifying OCD's in that age group. The highest risk joints include hocks, fetlocks and stifles, but they aren't limited to those joints. Other factors can effect your...

    I would not expect a slight negative palmar angle or broken back axis (I'm not entirely sure what you are describing with a negative displacement of the coffin bone) to cause lameness at the walk.

    If it's the perfect saddle, you can have the seat leather replaced and have a layer of cushion added. It will probably run you around $600. Saving the original leather is unlikely since the cushion...

    It's possible my professors in vet school were mistaken, but I've seen reports in the literature as well of horses with sudden death (particularly during exercise) where low dose chronic ionophore...

    If so, they need to be testing feed and horses asap for causes. Monensin, for example.

    Very tragic! I really feel for the rider :(

    When the horse goes better than it does at liberty.

    But, I also think all of dressage that is working on the training scale is "real" dressage!

    Your horse is lovely and you are a nice rider!! Your horse has got you into a trap, where he feels through, but is really putting in the effort of a jogging western horse. You need to GO! I suspect...

    Is it a legitimate pitch they are going to make or is it written for entertaining the website readers?

    I think it would be great for the sport and it would make a good inspirational movie!

    Touchy and tripping would make me want to look at the neck (facet joints). As usual, ask your vet. :) Some of these "neck" horses do surprising well on 100-200mg of prednisolone orally each day after...

    After rewatching both of their Olympic rides, I see several better scoring movements in valegro's test. It is hard to overcome technical points lost with a half point increase in difficulty. Plus, if...

    It's whatever fits well and makes you happy! I like polos over eskadron bandages when I have time or well fitted boots when I'm in a hurry.
  16. Is there video from Today's GPS in Wellington anywhere?

    I've been looking for video since I couldn't watch the livestream. I'm hoping to see Laura and Steffen's rides, but I haven't been able to find anything yet. They will probably be on demand with USEF...

    Bilateral OCD surgery is very common and the horses do well.

    OP, some horses do well with ace crumbles added to their reduced grain ration 2-3 times a day. You might be surprised, he might do...

    You can find a serviceably sound horse that rarely stops and would hopefully just need hocks done yearly for the $8500. I would work on getting out of both horses. Neither is what you need right now...

    4-6 year old competing at their "year old test" or equivalent level are generally well trained horses and with trainable minds. They are worth a premium just for that. But, if you have a 12 year old...

    I steamed hay for one horse for a couple of winters. I put a bucket of water inside a full size trashcan. I put in a bucket heater (http://www.horsehealthusa.com//details/bucket-heater/4-1.html)....

    Nobody has given the idea that shoeing causes numbness any credibility.

    And shoeing is not "a poor care idea".

    Tended footed horse walks lame across rocks.
    Lameness is removed by blocking feet.
    Lameness isn't present when shoes are applied.
    Therefore, shoes obviously numb the foot.

    Classic case of...

    7 is ok. Just don't go smaller. A lot of people use a 7; 10 just happens to be "stock" on certain brands of body clippers. T-84 is the other most common and it is actually closer to a 7.
