    I don't have anyone in real life to bounce ideas off of and it can help to get an outside perspective such as the advice from mvp. I am not sure about "quite a few" though. Is three quite a few?

    Some of you guys are making a lot of assumptions. Which I guess I should expect from COTH.

    Thank you to those that didn't and offered useful advice.

    It could be that his gut just isn't moving the food properly along his digestive track. Has he ever been on a PPI? Or maybe he isn't moving around enough?

    Is he stalled at night? If so, does he...

    mvp you have a good point. I think I just need to let the client know what will be changing and let her make her own conclusion. And when she concludes she needs a different barn, I will have...
  5. Best way to tell a client they aren't a good fit anymore?

    Let's keep this generic.

    Let's say a barn has had to change it's focus for whatever reason, or the client has changed their focus, and due to nothing bad on either parties part, the barn is just...

    Chambons are useful for building the back when lunging. Much easier to build the back (in my opinion) without the weight of the rider.

    Having another trainer come in affects your barn's insurance (they would have to make sure Loki is insured and has their barn listed under his policy), so I can understand why a barn wouldn't allow...

    I don't have RA, but do have something with some similarities. I find the BOT gloves and socks help, and also padded stirrups, or at least wide foot bed stirrups.

    You may also want to consider...

    You just have to find a way to sell it so the owner of that particular horse doesn't feel you judging her or her horse. If your barn often leaves horses in for days on end, this might even be a good...

    I wonder if you could convince the owner to pay for lunging work when the horse is going to be in his stall for more than 24 hours at a time. This might help keep him from exploding when he...

    A magical fix: can you put a small pen up in your arena, and have her hang out while horses ride around her? Give her hay to much. Ideally in the middle of the ring, but if not, on the edge.
