    Before spending the money on new boots, you might want to ride in...

    I second the vet suggestion. Could be low-grade laminitis, based on your comment about her weight.

    I have a pony who is sometimes strong. A tom-thumb jointed pelham is my go-to for show jumping and fox hunting. I use two reins and recommend that over a converter. The curb chain is tight enough...

    As a seller, I have been advised that the cleanest way to do this is to draw up a contract that transfers ownership and legal responsibility to the buyer but include a (say) 14-to-30 day "return...

    LadyB's suggestion of grid work is right on the mark. Find someone who is good at setting and adjusting grids based on the horse's reactions and it will help both the horse and you!
