    Saddles that are shiny are often slippery - that's why people don't want shiny saddles. A soft glow is different. That can be grippy.

    I'd be working with him so he's not scared of blankets being blown around - that's going to happen, so get him used to it. Take him to an area where he can get a little way away from you. Start with...

    I didn't think old fashioned film type X-Ray's existed anymore. If he can't develop them himself, he may well be finding it difficult to find someone to develop them at this time of year.

    Actually, these are "cognitive losses". I work with people with brain damage from a variety of causes, and changes in executuive functioning are definitely what are considered cognitive losses. All...

    My thoughts were along similar lines. Why is this okay but puppy mills aren't? Or hoarding 100 big horses? If there were 300 horses living in inappropriate conditions (ie no feed) everyone would be...

    I keep my horses and young cattle seperate because of this. If a calf (or other cattle) starts licking the horse, horses seem to go into a bit of a trance and allow them to do anything. I had one...

    I haven't read all the replies so this may be a repeat: horses are far less likely to pull back if they are tied to a point higher than their withers. If you can get it higher than their eye with...

    My first question to find out if the panic button is mouth related would be around your ground work without a bridle on? Does she panic then? How is your turning /flexion in a halter? Have you tried...

    A longer lead makes a huge difference too. More length for your horse to go through and turn around, and also more length for you to swing at the pushy ones.

    That's pretty impressive actually. A lot could have gone wrong. I'd guess that that guy has driven a horse before. I've had to stop a bolting horse in harness - not fun because you can't turn them...

    But there are TWO round pens at that barn!!! I'd work with horses if I had access to two pens - I'd happily just watch the man who was meant to be working. And he's clearly sooo unfit when he has to...

    That's a shame because it was a great video. Wonder if they got too many negative comments? People complain about everything.

    It does sound as if euthanasia is the right decision. I would be worried that if I gave a horse like this away, someone would try breeding from her and cause her more pain and possibly produce a foal...

    Really? I can't be bothered searching their financial records - if its true, why aren't we all doing it I ask myself?

    Not sure if this has already been posted, but how on earth couldn't the owners see that something was wrong???

    This. Talk to your Dr, a physio or a really good sports massage therapist. Used to happen to me all the time. Fixing the muscle spasm in my back, fixed my feet.

    Reports here say it wasn't to do with the fence. He'd jumped the fence and takena few strides and the horse stumbled and both went down. I hope he's okay.
