    Like others said, please first confirm that the horse is sound before working her, but your above sentence says volumes about why your horse is reluctant to go forward if this is simply a training issue. What you're doing is nagging. TB's really learn to tune that out quickly. Instead of squeeze/squeeze/please honey trot, keep your leg dead quiet and then only ask softly once and only once. If no response, big thump with the inside leg, again only once. If that doesn't get a response, sharp crap of the crop behind the inside leg. If that doesn't work. It's probably not a training issue. Once you get the desired result of forward, reward, come back to walk and repeat. I haven't met a TB yet that would choose option 3 a second time. Most likely you'll only get to leg thump the second time. They're quick learners, but most are better at training their riders. Give it a try. Can't hurt.

    Yes it is. It is readily available at farm supply stores or on line.
    It runs about 20.00 for a gallion and I never went through a gal a season. I gave my horse half teh suggested dosage as it gave him butt loads of energy. I put it in a squeeze bottle and just added a little to his feed.
    I think it is an iron suppliment
