    You could go to a Duo or Nathe mullen mouth bit. Those generally are about as mild as they get, and often encourage horses who are reluctant to take up contact to do so.

    Often though, when a horse...

    Yes, I was going to say that it's a Pink Stallion complex:winkgrin:.

    Actually it was interesting seeing that after the ad that preceded it (I don't know if everyone else saw the same ad). It was...

    It really doesn't surprise me that she could become herd bound in just a few days. Nor does the neurotic behavior.

    This is a horse who has had one owner and, probably, a very set routine for 9...

    I agree that it's a horse being a horse. And especially it's a horse new to his handler who doesn't quite trust the handler to be able to take care of him when something new comes along.

    I'd say...

    What about Cromwell? (As in Oliver Cromwell).

    Or Holmes (for Oliver Wendell Holmes)?

    Just trying to understand: are you saying the weight of the bit creates poll pressure? Regardless of the type of bit?

    Personally, I think that if one is feeling a lot of pressure under the poll after just putting the bridle on, without any pressure on the reins or anything, then maybe the straps are done up too...

    I don't think that it's possible that all bits cause poll pressure. I don't see how mechanically that's even possible.

    For a bit to put pressure on the poll when the reins are pulled back, there...

    I think he looks tons better; he just doesn't have a topline.

    It's going to take some time: he just got finished with the doxy, and it takes a while for them to really recover from a lyme...

    Another vote for the Uvex. It's very well-ventilated, particularly in comparison to my previous helmet (which I otherwise liked), a Charles Owen.

    I like how the Uvex helmets look, and Uvex has a...

    I would say try using hoof boots on the fronts when you go out on the roads. You don't have to use the boots all the time when you ride and he doesn't have to be turned out in boots.

    I agree with most of the comments here.

    I am married to a very non-horsey man. He really does not get the horse thing at all. He's never said any of these things.

    I really like the Carr Day and Martin Belvoir Leather Balsam. I like it better than the Effax and the HSLC.

    Amazon carries it. The manufacturer's page is here:

    You mention that he's not acting "ulcer-y," but has his behavior changed at all? More lethargic? Spookier? Any quidding?

    Depending on how long it's been since his teeth were done, you might have...

    I don't think that ticks are smart enough to be repelled by anything. They just hop on to anything that walks past (or noses into). it is that they happen to hanging out on.

    I'm having good luck...

    I think making contact with the two women (mother and daughter) makes sense, as does going to see the horse in person. After talking to them, you might know whether you should go to "visit" the horse...

    Dry spots there often mean that there is too much pressure there; in other words that the saddle is too narrow. If you add padding to a too narrow saddle you will make the fit more uncomfortable.

    The Easy Boot Back Country boots come in a wide size that accommodates round hooves. Same with the Gloves.

    The best thing to do is to measure the hooves in millimetres (not inches), and then go to...
