    Nothing better than soaking a towel and sticking it in the fridge. Great for when you have a larger area you need to keep cold (since you can get a big shower towel and use it to wrap a whole leg).

    I agree with lorilu.

    The horses do look theoretically okay, I guess - but I can't seem to shake the feeling that the horses all seem very tense through the back with an overly developed...

    Well, not a horse, but I *had* a dog like that - he is now fine! He eventually turned very dog aggressive as because he didn't understand when to back off, in his mind, dogs were only good to attack...

    Vet advised me to check it regularly and if it got larger to call him so he could remove it. Sometimes these melanomas stay the...

    Without seeing the actual horse, its very hard to assess if the trainer is doing the right thing or not - but in general, yes, I do agree with her.

    As long as you are careful not to "burn the...

    I feed alfalfa cubes for weight gain, and because my horse is a very hard keeper, ulcer prone and under a considerable amount of work.

    Like regular alfalfa hay, they're high protein so probably...

    I start using the double bridle as soon as the tests require it - aka 6 year old FEI. So I guess I introduce it calmly as a 5 1/2 year old.

    I make sure horses walk on the lunge. If its important to do a good walk warm up when riding, I think its even more important when lunging since the joints are under more stress.
