    Everytime I see this thread title I read "Cinchy COTH get-together" and think it's a support group for COTH'ers with cinchy horses. :lol:

    I voted never have and unlikely to be able to.

    I have my thirtysomething STB who taught me to ride, who has earned his retirement. I also have my 16 yr old paint who is not sound for riding,...

    In addition to Sally Swift, Mary Wanless, and the Dorrance brothers:

    The Compassionate Equestrian by Allen Schoen and Susan Gordon; and
    Riding with Life by Melanie Smith Taylor.

    Oh! And It's...

    True, wildlifer. :) I bitch and moan about our summers, but even I have to admit that - with the exception of a couple of weeks during dead summer - if I get up early enough, it's cool enough to...

    My vet told me to save my money and put my two horses with stiff joints on a maintenance dose of previcox.

    A former BO of mine did this. Didn't last long, though. She wound up buying another farm.

    Wow. It would never occur to me to worry about this. :) We have plenty o' gators, for sure, but I never once thought about them trying to take a horse. I've certainly never heard of such a thing. ...

    A friend of mine posted that article on FB. I didn't really feel like I could reply to her - she was hurt riding a horse she shouldn't have been riding in circumstances that were likely to get her...

    In my state, you can do a licensee lookup on the state's Labor Licensing and Regulations website. It will tell you if the person has a valid license and if there have been any disciplinary actions...

    Wow. Just finished watching and loved it.

    Cricket died of unknown causes after getting loose with some of the other horses. They theorized he might have broken his neck or suffered a crushed...

    Thanks, y'all. You've all given me lots of good ideas. I'm going to find someone to fix the broken divider bolt, but I'm also going to ask that person about doing a full-width butt bar. That way,...

    No, no reason, but I think Conjure might be happier having the entire trailer compartment instead of his divided half. I'd like to try it and see, anyway.
  13. I see how that could work. Thanks! :)

    I see how that could work. Thanks! :)
  14. No, not yet, and you might be right. :) Conjure...

    No, not yet, and you might be right. :) Conjure often surprises me by being much better and calmer than I give him credit for. I'm an attorney, which means I get paid to dream up the absolute...

    That's what I'm trying to visualize. Say I'm loading him into the driver's side of the trailer. Once he's in, he can't turn to his right because there's a divider there. But if it weren't there,...

    That would be great if I could find one. I'll give it a shot, thanks! :)

    Yeah, I didn't realize that until I posted a snopes link under a FB friend's post about ISIS stealing UPS uniforms so they could leave bombs on people's doorsteps without arousing suspicion. Who...

    Yes, mine does that too. :) Self-loading is a great skill to teach a horse.

    Now I have to figure out how to do it in a stock trailer with no divider or butt bar, though.
  19. So can you please describe how you do this?...

    So can you please describe how you do this? Thanks. :)

    Probably safer. I once hauled a pony who was short enough to scoot under the butt bar. Luckily I'd got his head untied before he did it!

    poltroon - good point. I hadn't thought of that. Let me see if I can find a picture of the trailer I have and I'll link it.

    No, can't find one. It's a Bee K&K stock trailer, though, and it was...

    On an english saddle, I believe it's a strap that attaches to the front D-rings. On a western saddle, it's called a nightlatch and it just goes around the pommel.

    Another Poster - Horse is a reformed problem-loader. When I hauled him home, it took three people and a butt rope to winch him in. Lots of work with a trainer and practice later, and he's what I'd...
  24. Stock trailer with no divider or butt bar - how to load/unload?

    The bolt sheared off my center divider in my stock trailer. I still have breast bars which keep horse from going out the full-size escape door, but I have no butt bars. The back door is one piece....

    I have a very similar horse, so I can sympathize. I don't know the answer to the problem, but I can tell you what has and hasn't worked for us and maybe some of it will help. :)
