  1. A bit for elevation (keeping the head up)

    I have a youngster I am just taking out on trails and I've tried a few different bits and I still have the same problem. He is very flexible and puts his chin to his chest when we gait or canter. ...

    Thanks everyone. Vet and farrier have been out and he's doing much better. Good trim with egg bar shoes and pads. Two hock injections in each hock and some daily previcox for a while. Both say he...

    To answer some of the questions:

    Sorry, should have mentioned - paid with a check that I held. I don't think she abused him in any way - nice older gal. But I don't like the way the feet looked...

    He's very lame. Started with the RF and it's now the LF too. It came up quickly - which is a big mystery to me. He was never lame a day in his life before this. She had him on a 6-month trial...
  5. My 13 yo QH has been diagnosed with navicular and juvenile arthritis

    What can I expect and/or do for him? He was examined off-site by the buyers vet for pre-purchase. That vet took radiographs and made the diagnosis and the horse came back to me. They are sending...

    Golden Pony, you might start having issues with longer trail rides. I did. It isn't the pad so much as it's the pressure point (I only have experience with BM saddles) on the top of the spine where...

    I rode in a Bob Marshall (western rider) for years. I was a novice rider when I started and by the time I became a more confident rider (really moved out), I started to notice white hairs on top of...

    I too owned a Steele saddle. I ordered it direct and when I took my first ride, it was uncomfortable. The saddle was too wide in the seat - hit me where my thighs meet my legs. I am a short woman...

    Some great posts here. You and I should have been penpals - I broke my leg in seven places on 5/21/10. Plates, pins, wires and another surgery four weeks ago to remove some stuff that was coming...

    The new ones have a flex tree according to her website, but didn't the older ones start out treeless? I seem to remember someone saying her daughter-in-law took over and added the flex tree in the...

    My 10 year old QH gelding does the same thing. Peppermints can get him going like crazy. I don't know if he was weaned early or not (grade QH bought at auction), but he's the only horse I've ever had...

    My understanding is that you need to show a profit one out of every five years. Otherwise it becomes a hobby and your deductions are disallowed. How do I know this? A horse breeder friend is...

    I don't want to highjack the thread, but we have had multiple reports of horses left -- in trailers at shows, tied to gates (four at one man's farm) and in pastures. Sad, so very sad.
