    I always ask myself if the horse would be better off not working. In your case, it sounds like the answer would be a resounding no. Arthritis doesn't improve with rest, and it sounds like your light...

    He's cute! With re-training, I think he would make a good prospect, assuming a vet clears him for work with his breathing issues.

    He needs to learn to go out to the bit, seeking contact, with a...

    I bought a horse from Diane Ritz just outside Charlotte, NC. She seemed knowledgeable, and had brought the horse along well in the time she had him. I would recommend meeting her if you are looking...

    Neck x-rays are very straightforward, and not that expensive. Can be done on the farm with a good vet. If you identify the spot, injections can make a world of difference.

    Yes. We live in an expensive part of the country. Your exam charge is pretty standard. Your x-rays seem high though. I paid about $1800 for the whole horse - including neck and back.
