My horse is clumsy, very clumsy. What should I do?

My 8yr tb mare constantly is cutting her legs. My boarding stables doesn't have any cut wires or hazards or anything, and I'm not sure if she isn't getting along with her pasture mates but she constantly is getting HUGE cuts on her legs. I can't board her inside, because the barn has no open stalls. She got two cuts on the same leg in one month. How do I fix this?

Basically, you can't. Unless you're watching her every minute, there's no way to determine how she's getting gashed. If you don't know, then you can't fix it.

Speedracer is right.... I feel ya though b/c that's happened to me/us. I had enough so one day I hung with her in pasture & followed her around. In 20 mins I found 2 spots she could cut herself and found where her blanket strap got snagged. Just a thought... Sorry your on "wound care duty".

Are feet trimmed well? Maybe her toes are too long and she's having trouble getting out of the way of other horses in a pinch?

Tell your farrier, sometimes a different trim can fix the problem.
