    Appreciating all the feedback.

    I think the trouble is, I'm realizing that in this case, aside from ruling out every possible pain-related issue, we have pretty much covered all our bases.

    I bought a pair of custom dress boots from La Mundial about eight years ago. They are so stiff they prevent me from using my legs effectively; the ankle is completely rigid. It took me several years...

    Interesting suggestion of blinkers; I have never used these, I will look into this further.

    Also should mention that I am a breeder and start my own young horses. I currently have a 3 year old and two 4 year olds I am preparing to back, all three of which are much more physically mature...

    Thanks everyone for the feedback.

    Countrywood, this horse has had MONTHS of groundwork, including tons of sacking out. Like, more than any young horse I've ever encountered. More groundwork does...

    Spooking/bolting during dismount

    Not sure where to post this; there have been similar threads, but none I've found quite relevant enough to my own situation.

    I am starting a young horse for a friend. I have started a number of...

    Why not breed to a German Riding Pony? They are warmbloods in a smaller package. ;)

    I saw Carry On at the 70 day test and liked him a LOT. Really nice horse.

    I also really liked the looks of Pallido. Nice elastic movement, looked to have an excellent temperament; I'm hoping to...

    Whether or not one is in favour of air vests, we should probably be careful about making statements like this. Clearly, in this case, the air vest did not CAUSE the injury since it didn't deploy and...

    In theory, this is true - in reality, though, all things being equal, registry does affect value. I had not planned to sell this guy, but I was hoping he would be a keeper filly for me so I want to...

    Foal registration: RPSI or CWHBA?

    Considering options for registration of a foal. Due to the registry of his dam (ATA), I am currently limited to either RPSI or CWHBA (Canadian Warmblood). I am leaning toward RPSI but there is no...

    Don't forget that there are two distinct Holsteiner "C" lines. Presumably the one you are referring to is from Cor de la Bryere, to which Contratto is linebred (3x!). The other is from Capitol I...

    Freestyle offspring

    Had planned a breeding to Bon Balou, but since he has tragically passed away, we are considering whether to breed the mare (Hanoverian by Feiner Stern) intended for Bon Balou to Freestyle instead.

    I am surprised by this, myself. As I said, I was personally interested in this guy, but as a gelding (of course). It did not even occur to me that someone would keep him as a stallion. I am not...

    Good point, JB. I do not have all the details of course, as this is not my horse, although I remember the circumstance (i.e., how the ad was worded) of this colt's sale as I was tempted by him...
  25. Breeding to a stallion with OCD - should mare owners be informed?

    The thread about whether to breed to a mare with OCD has got me thinking.

    I keep seeing a young stallion advertised - excellent pedigree, looks nice enough, in training with a relative "big name"....
