    It does sound as if euthanasia is the right decision. I would be worried that if I gave a horse like this away, someone would try breeding from her and cause her more pain and possibly produce a foal...

    Really? I can't be bothered searching their financial records - if its true, why aren't we all doing it I ask myself?

    Horses taken into care.

    Not sure if this has already been posted, but how on earth couldn't the owners see that something was wrong???

    After the first round, that would be boring!
    It would be much more fun to ride the horses - bare back!!!

    This. Talk to your Dr, a physio or a really good sports massage therapist. Used to happen to me all the time. Fixing the muscle spasm in my back, fixed my feet.

    Reports here say it wasn't to do with the fence. He'd jumped the fence and takena few strides and the horse stumbled and both went down. I hope he's okay.

    I've got one and a nearly one.

    Nearly one: trotting along the road verge on a bareback pad that was really grippy. Youngish horse. Group of cyclists coming around the corner towards us on the...

    No. Not a good idea. What happens if the horse injures itself, what happens if she moves away and just disappears? There are too many ways for this to go wrong.

    I'd totally do that!!! Looks awesome. I would pick the horse or pony I did it on carefully. I wouldn't choose my 17 hh eventer, but would take one of the smaller horses, probably one of my ex-wild...

    Very nice. You could make the legs out of the stacked strawberry growers. Then you'd have fresh strawberries for after your rides.

    If I picked up a book and read that information - either in a preview or in the body of the book, it would immediately be relegated to the "writer has no horse knowledge, any horse stuff in this book...

    ibuprofen, ibuprofen, ibuprofen. Three times / day, up to 600 mgs (that's usually 3 tablets) a time for the first 3 days, then 400 mgs.

    But, if you go on riding, don't be surprised if it takes...

    Just thought I would add: go watch a few shows to see what people wear. Most people wear crash hats in novice / debutante classes. If you are wearing a top hat, make sure it is a low one and they are...

    Are you in NZ? You might be better posting on a New Zealand forum. The US doesn't have showing like we do. You should read the rules in the RAS rule book. It governs showing here in New Zealand.

    What about a farm management course, or business managment, or accounting?
    I like the idea of talking to your vets. Do you have a local college which does vet nurse courses? Sometimes they run short...

    Are you now 5 years down the track?

    If so, has the horse not yet hit the big time? When is he going to?

    Horses don't care what they do as long as they are fed and cared for. He will not stand...

    I rope horses as part of their training. I can't throw a lasso, though I'd dearly love to - another tool to add.

    The horses that I work are feral. They come any age, mares and stallions as well...

    I am not usually a grammer nazi, but this post has to be the all-time best example of why paragraph breaks and punctuation were invented!!!!

    I grew up hooning ponies around (with my siblings) on country like this. Best place to learn to stick on a pony ever. Apart from mustering, it was our job, from a very young age, to look for "cast"...
