    The reason for so many dressage riders with labral tears may be that people are trying to ride with too long a leg FOR THEM. If trying to ride with that very straight drop from the hip causes an...

    What you were dealing with there, sad to say, is poor herd management. The BO or BM should be observant enough to see if someone's getting shortchanged, and move the hay accordingly. We space our...

    Dig deeper and find what the actual percentage is of "obese" people who have those diseases. It's not nearly as high as the BS we're sold, and you'll find out that "by the numbers" it's actually...

    The reason why they TRY to be conservative, leaving surgery for the course of last resort, is that the nerves between the hip, pelvic organs, and lower back are all entwined and bundled together and...

    I'm very glad to see the direction this thread is trending; it echoes my lead-feed from NewHorse.com, where more and more people are also seeking lots of turnout.

    For a couple of years there, I...

    Those who said up above that "It IS a SPORT!" have a point, and the point is suitability. Something we take for granted when discussing the relative merits of horses, but somehow forget about when...

    Here's a radical idea: Alter them. Buy some fabric that contrasts, matches, or comes close and sew a waistband up to 5 additional inches on top to make up the rise. In fact, your tailor might be...

    "Too small to shoot, too big to step on!" :lol: But a hand-swipe dashing to the ground followed by a quick stomp gets 'em most of the time. Just watch out your horse doesn't kick out and get you...

    She came along in the same era when Judy Blume was the rage among young girls, and I think she consciously brought that sensibility to her horse and dog stories; for the better, because it isn't all...

    Super-easy: I've never heard of ANYONE beginning a lesson program without going to the barn first to meet the owner and/or instructor, talk about price, times, and equipment requirements, so make...

    Before proceeding with treatment (and particularly any kind of surgery), strongly recommend reading the complete text of the following article:

    Go look up a BMI chart and see where you fall on that; it isn't accurate for a great many people, but it gives you a starting point to see if you are in the "danger zone" of either too thin or too...

    The bottom line with boarding is you need to find a place where the "culture" fits yours. In our immediate area there's a place where the horses are in Arizona-style postage-stamp pens fenced with...

    THE POINT is that not every piece of crap a dog manages to eat requires an emergency visit, an MRI and abdominal surgery, and that most of us can be trusted, most of the time, to have enough brain...

    DARK HORSE, by Jean Slaughter Doty, William Morrow & Co., 1983 sounds more like the one the OP is looking for. It's the story of a mysteriously high-quality horse bought off an auction truck, who...

    Unfortunately the industry is geared to 15 year old skinny little girls. They don't yet realize they aren't the ones with most of the money. I wouldn't be caught dead at a dog fight in 95% of what...

    I'm convinced that "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing" as Mom says, and more than a few COTH'ers have Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome with their horses. There is a large contingent on here who...

    SUPERB article. Possibly the most significant post of this YEAR. One thing he missed, however, is the extent to which I believe pets have become child-surrogates in a world where fewer people...
