    Rehabing a gluteal strain?

    So, I've got a mare who we believe strained a gluteal muscle. Not lame, but not right. We've done Chiro, we've done Radio Frequency Therapy, we've talked to our Vet. We're in the 30-40 minute...

    Thanks guys.

    I looked for other threads, but nothing addressed the questions I specifically had.

    I hauled hay for the group in my trailer (loaded and unloaded...

    Trainer's Horse Show Fees?

    I’m returning to the show ring following a long absence. In my prior years, I never really paid attention to how my trainers billed for services; I was younger and more focused on chasing points,...

    Thanks to all of you. Very helpful. butiwantedapony that is what we're trying to do as well, reinforce this as "relaxing work". I like the idea of mixing them in.

  5. Thank you!

    Very helpful and appreciated.
  6. Thank you!

    Thank you so much. It's interesting you mention straightness because we are having issues with that. I've been trying to remember to ride with wide hands (thank you Bernie Traurig clinic 1 month...
  7. How often to you jump and other questions?

    This is really long, so bear with me here. I'm an uber-conservative adult amateur who has been riding forever, but still question my judgement on many things. How often to jump this paricular horse...

    True. I know the Duo you mention. It has a wire center, right? However, it is still a straight bar, so to speak. No independent flexion, as a jointed snaffle offers. The bit we were messing with...

    Jointed Mullen Mouth????

    In a conversation with someone whose opinion I value, they referred to a jointed D-ring snaffle with a barrel, as a jointed mullen? Never in my life have I heard a snaffle referred to as a "jointed...

    Interesting suggestion. I tried a friend's ported full cheek Myler last night. You would have thought I was killing her. Couldn't even get her to the ring in it...she acted like she was gagging. ...

    So, I tried the Myler Dee with the roller (no port) last night (loaner from a barnmate) and she still sticks her tongue out. Also, didn't care for the way she felt in my hand. Wondered if that...

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I see two of the Myler Dees that could work. One has a low port. This is not a green horse, nor is she heavy at all. She can back off the bit too much at times, so...

    Bit Gurus Needed

    I have a mare who has started sticking her tongue out randomly. She's not hanging it out the side like Droopy Dog, but she sticks it between her front teeth so it's clearly visible between her lips...

    JB,
    I'm on week two of my streching experiment. The DerDau "cream" is not creamy at all. Very liquidy, which was surprising. I hit the boots every day for the first 5 days and wore them only to...

    Wow, is this weird. I have the exact same issue with the exact same boot brand. I put my old Elites on last week in an attempt to not replace full-chaps (yes, I still love my full-chaps) with half...
