    Chicamuxen - I, and her former owner (another COTHer) have both worked with her. She can be handled by the farrier, the vet, and me for short periods of time (she gets her muzzle on and off every day...

    Thank you everyone - I didn't mean to abandon this thread.

    Thanks to a change in hay, some bute, and some blue pop rocks, Mo is doing very well. She even showed off her funny little trot today....

    Not over reacting at all. My gelding will be six in a month. Last fall he popped one high on the inside of his right hind. I called the vet, did conservative rest and rehab, and then ended up doing...

    It's trained and looks like that when it's wrong. If it's trained right then the collection and balance required leads to the horse wanting to step back at the end. Part of that is anticipation as...

    It works. Reining trainers do a lot of backing up both as a correction and for strength building and improving the sliding stop. A sliding stop is really a backwards maneuver - if you do it right the...

    Take Jay, above, up on her offer. She's sent me two saddles so far and both are excellent fits on my horse. I'm playing Goldilocks, but at least now I'm worrying about what works for me, not what...

    Newbie question - must I braid for recognized shows? My reiner cum dressage pony has a midlength natural mane and I've no desire to pull/cut it. Or can you do big buttons with a 12" mane?
  8. I use only sulfate free shampoos on my horse -...

    I use only sulfate free shampoos on my horse - Natures Gate usually. Partly because I'm allergic to them, but also because sulfates strip natural oils from the hair. It's more expensive than ivory,...

    Off. I'm in WA and keep mine at home. That said, I usually leave a breakaway halter on the mini mule if I'm gone more than a few days. She's hard to catch and I want to make it easy if someone needs...

    I think you need to put in a heated tank. I grew up in MN and we kept horses in an old concrete block bank barn. The heated tank was filled with a hose as needed - the hose bib was insulated and...

    White gold. I like the mellow look of it. I've worn my wedding band (no stones) daily for nearly 11 years and it doesn't look any worse for wear. I think the color has mellowed a bit over time, but...

    Adding sand in a sacrifice paddock?

    We have gravel sacrifice paddocks off each of our stalls and my gelding and mini mule have 24/7 access to them. This winter has been tough on Mo (she's previously foundered) with a round of too...

    I test rode one on my QH. I liked the twist but the seat was too wide for me.

    I tried the Concept Flexibility in a 17.5 MW and I think it was the rise to the pommel that was the issue - ouch.

    As for why UK made only? They're the only thing that seem to fit him - he needs...

    You guys are getting me so excited! This is my first trip to Rolex and I'm bringing my non horsey mom.

    Here's my question. Assuming she can only handle so much horse park (she's a good sport, but...

    I did! I'm trying to decide what to do, and thought the hive mind might have some helpful insights. :)
  17. Feeling Like Goldilocks - Insights on UK Made Dressage Saddles?

    The saga of attempting to fit both my horse and me with a dressage saddle continues. With the help of my local saddle fitter and Jay at Trumbull Mountain we've figured out what fits, or is likely to...

    Or sometimes I think that it's the mark of an instructor that is a naturally gifted rider and so can't explain the mechanics of what they do since they don't have to think about them.

    I just...

    Why would you not just do a week of Ulcer/GastroGard and see if it has an effect? I say that gently as I struggled for 15 months to put/keep weight on my QH, believing that his gut was fine. I...

    I wear a plain white gold band and I don't take it off unless I'm bathing a horse or working with bread dough / raw hamburger. My engagement ring comes out only for special occasions.

    Thats how it usually goes but right now we're living in a shed and the truck camper while we put the house back together. The house work is sucking all my time and will to live. :(

    great. Now I feel even worse about how dirty my barn is right now. House remodeling is getting in the way of barn cleaning. :(

    Yes. My QH had ulcers last spring and it manifested mainly in his attitude under saddle. He wasn't so much spooky as reactive and ornery. I did 7 days of GastroGard - full tube - and saw a difference...

    I used my 4wd on Sunday due to soft ground and poor planning on my part. I wouldn't be without it here in WWA. When you need it you need it and I hate trying to find someone to get me unstuck. Having...
