    Going to vote get a second opinion here. Yeah they can vet glean and go 3 legged in a week or have terrible x rays and never take a lame step.

    BUT, we are talking about a youngster, not a veteran...

    Some of the fussy ones get fussier with too many moving parts in their mouths. Try something like a Mullin mouth or unjointed low port.

    Sometimes in our quest to get them in the softest bit, we...

    Oh, I almost forgot the one exercise over poles that every clinician works into their clinic agenda. It's deceptively easy and combines correct flatwork with adjustability and finding the jumps. Many...

    It's called transitional estrus and they go thru it twice a year. In early fall (as in right about now), the hormone levels shift as the system prepares to go into anestrus (no ovulation) over the...

    Eh, you take what works from here and ignore the inevitable pontificators speaking down at you from their tall armchair.;)

    But, lose the long spots. Please.

    Perhaps talking to a professional would be a wise choice? Doesn't seem all that "normal" from what you posted. Maybe a physical would be a good idea. Or a talk with a counselor. Or both.

    But I...

    That had to hurt. Bad. I'd cry too. She could have done some soft tissue damage or gotten a deep bruise. Probably scared her too.

    How old is she?

    I watched, she's just really green and really does not have the flatwork solid enough for jumping-you can't help her or correct mistakes. But she's not bad at all and got better towards the end.

    Injectable HA as Legend is the only way to insure the horse gets enough.

    Afraid I don't understand what the vet is saying with " communicating" hocks. How old is this horse and what kind of work...

    That's not really maintenance, that's masking a deteriorating condition so the horse can work. May also be paying off your vets new truck:confused:

    Its one thing to keep an older horse that's been...

    Some have physical conditions HA will not help or the condition deteriorates to where it's past a joint lubrication issue.

    What do the most recent x rays show ?

    She will delight some lucky child, I'll look at the videos later at home.

    The tying thing? It's the norm in breed shows and many locals but for some reason, not practiced that often in H/J land. Probably because you can't park the trailer anywhere near the show ring and...

    Where's the video? Back on the other thread? Link? On phone at work, no can poke around looking for it.

    Can you just turn her out for a year? Things like this take so much time to completely heal. My first reaction to your post is she's not healed yet.

    I sit and watch too many horses that are put...

    They are in the mountain time zone IIRC, 2 hours behind EDT. Dont know about their daylight savings schedule but it's too early to show and probably still dark.

    Ah, I remember this one from an earlier thread over on Off Course. Nice Pony, Welsh cross probably IIRC, seems to have some quality, color can be a +or a- depending on buyer but many do like it (...

    You would have to check with your show regarding Juniors ( which are 3'6") cross entering on a Pony. Children's Hunters are 3' and might be a better place to look for a catch rider.

    But I don't...

    Got a question for you...you typical gymnast size?

    I see gymnasts and I always think Pony riders. Barns that have Ponies are usually looking for a suitable sized, older rider to keep bratty Ponies...

    Yes on the evaluation lesson, even if it's a little more money. That will give you an opportunity to evaluate them as they do you. Go watch a few lessons too, mouth shut, eyes and ears open. Learn a...

    Looks like the "hollow cylinders" are just rivets. Bit much for my taste, those might leave a mark and might get the horse dropped back...or pissed.

    The fact you were a serious gymnast is a plus and explains your obvious drive. That's a good thing.

    When calling or e mailing around, I would mention that, say you have been riding for a couple of...

    Used properly for short periods of time by a competent rider, you know, one with good hands and a strong, properly used leg? On a horse with proper basics that decides it does not have to listen?...
