The showgrounds I frequent most often (HITS in Saugerties) has nothing covered. CDI shows outside with everyone else.
I can think of three scratches.
Once, the warm-up footing was incredibly deep beach sand, with a giant crater. I understand the facility has completely renovated the footing since, but I haven't...
I would consider getting a second opinion from another vet.
IMHO, PRP is currently the gold standard if you intend to use an injectable therapy. The downside of PRP is that the horse needs to be on strict stall rest for 30-45 days, with minimal hand walking...
I would bet he has some terrible ulcers. You've listed many of the symptoms.
I have known two horses that needed Omeprazole for 60 days at the treatment dose in order to get rid of their ulcers,...
Sorry you are going through this. Option 1 is to retire him now. Use NSAIDS to give him a few good months of retirement, and let him go when the pain is too great.
Assuming you wanted to take a...
I think that the foster program is much larger now, but there are still quite a few orphanages around. Most of them are called Children's Homes - so you may have more luck finding them that way.
Yes. Clip now and blanket at night. A medium weight is good for temps in the 30s.
It sounds like you've given it enough time to have a horse that isn't so drastically lame.
I'd use NSAIDS liberally to make him comfortable and happy for the time being, and schedule a follow-up...
The Pony Club D-1 (walk/trot)/D-2 level (canter and cross-rails) is truly beginner, so if he is limited to intermediate riders, I wouldn't go that route marketing wise.
Show horse wise, it really...
I'd think it would be an easier sell if there is enough property for a future owner to build a separate house at some point. There are two barns I've seen with living quarters built into the indoor...
ETA: How old is the horse? You mentioned Devon, which only has 4th level and up in the open classes. However, there are young horse classes for four, five and six year...
The North American Thoroughbred Society participates in the USDF All-Breeds awards program. You can see their registration requirements on their website.
Mine are shod every 4 weeks, perhaps 5 in the coldest part of winter. My sidebone horse was fit full in egg bars and full leather pads.
I agree. I thought Painted Black looked the best in his career. It's a shame he's 18. I'm not sure how many more years they will do at this level.
My vet has driven 5 hours to vet a horse for me before. If she wants her vet to do the vetting, she can pay for it and have her vet drive out.
My niece got her cell phone last year at age 11/12. My nephew got his two years ago, at age 15.
When I evented, I absolutely loved my Tipperary Eventer. However, they are much too long in the back to allow you to sit in a dressage saddle.
It will absolutely be good for him if done judiciously. I wouldn't necessarily expect collection, but intro, training, and first level are good goals.
1. good footing only
2. no longeing
I call my mare Baby or Baby Girl.
I call my gelding Bubby, Bubba or Little Man.
On the FEI TV livestream, he is not included in the top 8 ranking listed on screen. I too am curious.
Have you done any allergy testing? That would be my first move.
It depends. For a mom and baby being separated, I'll move.
For adults, it would have to be a comparable seat that I would also be comfortable in.
I'm watching on FEI TV. Painted Black put in a lovely test.
Around age 12.
Move up sooner if kid is tall for age, and showing in Large Ponies or Horses.
Move up later if kid is short and still on a medium pony.
