    I rode without one at a schooling show years ago (2001?) and the judge made a fuss -- bigger fuss than warranted IMHO. My horse had undergone sinus surgery and I rode without it long after he...

    sad indeed

    As mentioned previously:

    --the unsoundness is not consistent -- stretches of good work and progress, but then stretches of downtime, more than you want to see.
    --the horse is schooling...

    The age of the horse as nothing to do with its possible need to be retired.

    >> Of course, understood. But I think we would agree that it is a shame to have an very young horse unable to do a job...

    staying with the judge on scores

    Hi,

    I will be scribing for the first time soon. I watched a friend scribe and I am not sure how, if you are not watching the test, to make sure you are scoring the right movement?

    did you treat?

    Some have advised (not vets) to treat for lyme even though he tests negative. Did you treat?

    managing the not quite right horse

    Posting for a friend who has a young horse that in five years undersaddle has been 70% of the time sound, but 30% periodically not quite right. Vets find several mild issues that are possible...

    hock injections

    Hi,

    My young horse is having his hocks injected -- 1.5 lame on left hock, that was the vet recommendation. He is big, over 17.1, and injury-prone. The barn manager recommends two days of...

    "This is the problem. Horses look healthy, and even happy."

    You say "the problem is," this horse as happy and healthy. Why is that a problem? It's actually a huge indicator that the problems...

    ch-ch-change

    The fancier barn is nice but there are over 40 horses and the BM/trainer is more involved with folks in the lesson/training program. Daily workers/daily care is stellar -- clean stall, fresh water...

    Thanks all. We're finding that getting a day off seems to exacerbate the stiff/clunkiness. While I don't think daily riding is the answer, or even lunging (not a fan), I'm trying powerwalks in hand.

    big horse, slow warmup

    Does anyone else have a horse that is like this?

    I'm working with a 17.1, 8 years old Oldenburg. When ridden, it takes him at least 20 minutes to "unfurl" -- starts out stiff and clunky -- like a...

    Well, turnout half-days and ridden 5 days a week for about 30-40 minutes -- just w-t-c but fairly "balls to the walls,"with few breaks, plus cooldown and warmup time. We had a clinician ride him...
  16. TC complete or nutrena performance

    I was considering complete or nutrena performance (pink bag) which has high fat and fiber. I've started him on ultium and we'll see how that goes.

    He's in a good training program which has made...
  17. no fire in the belly -- feeding for more energy?

    My 7yo super laid back dressage horse has been getting a ration balancer (Progressive), supps, and hay. He is willing, but so quiet that it's hard to get the energetic movement that's rewarded in...

    My custom saddle took six months to finish and I too asked them to copy a particular saddle -- and it did not fit when it arrived. That's a 7K saddle we're talking about. We tried to make...

    My NQR horse seemed pretty willing, floppy-eared, pleasant expression but NQR in a very subtle way. Showed successfully, but it was kind of a rein-lame, real lame, question mark. Decided to put him...

  21. Experience with Good Apple Equine in Ocala

  22. thinking 2-300 dollar range

    Thanks -- I may splurge and go for that price range -- is there anything at all in the 200-300 dollar range?

    verhan saddles

    Hi,

    I have been looking at Verhan saddles -- found one that fits my horse well (on loan from another boarder). I've noticed that many are short-flapped, and I'm quite tall. Is there something...

    As it turns out, I have the option of taking him to the new place for a few days while boarding at the other place, and seeing how it works.

    And...

    Sometimes I think my phone is bugged. After...
