    I've posted a lot about my experiences with Gastroguard. Used it just at shows for one season with great success (made my horse a different horse during the show - calm and relaxed and focused versus...

    goodhors - I think you make a good point in considering your individual horses, but I think it's just as important to consider the actual construction of the individual trailer.

    I can't offer any advice on most of what you've got going on, but I can suggest a magnesium alternative.

    When I got my small pony (11 or 12 years ago?) he was obese and the seller thought that he...

    I hauled with a 3H BP for the last 11 or 12 years. Loved that trailer!

    Decided I needed more room for my horses (plus an additional stall or two now that my daughter is ready to start showing)...

    I would estimate that approximately 125% of my income goes to my horses (at least it feels that way every time the regular bills come due!).

    I had a <7' wide (can't remember what it was, but something in the 6'10" range) 3H slant bumper pull that I hauled my horses with for 12 or 13 years. Most of my horses are in the 17h range, though I...

    Sucralfate, as others have mentioned, is often given to ease fore and hind gut ulcers. IIRC, it coats ulcers in fore and hind gut. It is far less expensive than omeprazole. If I had my say, I would...

    It happened up here in the Seattle area at a show several years ago too. Very scary and really a freak accident (the horse up here was not in eggbar shoes, but had studs in and a stud got caught in...

    All of my jumpers go in regular hunter bridles, and none go in rubber reins.

    You're definitely not alone!

    I have one horse (out of 7) who goes absolutely nuts on alfalfa - jumpy, tense, studdish acting (mounting the mares and all), and spooky to the point that I wouldn't...

    I agree with the majority and say you're fine.

    My daughter has 2 ponies, one is 12.2h and the other is 13.2h. My helper kid who is 5'3" and 135-ish pounds rides the small regularly and he does...

    No, she learned to post with stirrups in a saddle. Bareback pad was the generic no-stirrups type. With the bareback pad she just hung on to the strap and kept her legs wrapped around the pony (which...

    My daughter stuck with a bareback pad (by preference) until she was 5-ish. We used a smaller Devoucoux saddle (16" maybe) that fits the pony when we did use a saddle, but she much preferred the...

    Depends on the horse.

    My TB has a massive amount of raw scope and can clear pretty much anything from a gap. Carry a gallop to a vertical and it doesn't matter how tall it is - not an issue. So...

    This is a true statement. Two points:
    1) Good luck finding a puissance class at a major show venue, let alone at multiple/many venues, in NA these days. I can think of a couple, but not like they...

    I had a gelding who was pulling his front shoes regardless of which boots I put on him. Shoe secures were the only things that kept his shoes on until he outgrew the issue.
