LOL I'd rather not say but I take my horses to a racetrack/performance horse clinic a little over an hour away.

I can't believe some people pay $100 for a basic lameness evaluation. It takes maybe 10 minutes to assess if there's a problem

Yeah I wish my vet caused 30 bucks for that.
Just a update, he's doing very well we did a practice run and ran around a 18 which is a 3 second shave off of our time! [:

One year of riding, people are surprised that after a three months of preparing for this, I'm winning with you.

Well I already took him to the "small town vets" that aren't horse specialists which was around that $30 mark. So an official lameness exam is what I need to do next for him, and I have no choice but to pay well over $100. That's what the rates are around here for anyone who knows anything about horses and lameness.

I wish I had your rates!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Maybe its the area I live in. I'm in barrel racing central haha.

Last November I had my horses hocks done....whirlbones injected...lameness evaluation....xrays of the feet.....teeth floated and my 2 year olds wolf teeth pulled for $500.

I'm pretty sure my vet cuts me a small discount bc I send alot of people to him

me and my horse have fallen a few times neither are or ever have been hurt. I probably should have died. But I got a good ol boy and he always takes care of me.

:( you never showed...I had all of my things ready and just stood by the curb waiting...for hours...in the heat....with no water.....shows how much of a friend you are!

I will be moving soon to a more "horse friendly" area so hopefully the prices will be a little cheaper!
