It's like night and day........ Cinny is feeling better

Today was our first real workout since the Ulcer diagnosis and we started him on meds. We had an AWESOME ride today. He is so much more relaxed and his trot is relaxed, springy and very open and forward. It's like riding a completely different horse.

Please no critique, I know my equitation is really bad, but I have a trainer and we are working on it... just remember that an hour a week isn't much time for a trainer to perform miracles.

Anyway.... Here is how he looks now..


He is still a little touchy but nothing like he was at the show.....

To remind you, this is how difficult he had gotten....


The difference is like night and day :) I'm so happy.

He does look a lot better. Still wanted to race a little and fight you, almost like he's trying to get the job done so he can be finished. Much better though! I'm glad you figured out the issue so quickly! Next show should be SO much better!

What sort of medication did he get, if you don't mind my asking?

I'm suspecting ulcers in my girl, so I'm just trying to research!

Wow, looking so much better, he is probably still a little rushy and tense just because he has gotten so used to going that way for so long. My best friends horse wouldn't canter for weeks after having his teeth done (they were making mouth sore sore he wouldn't go forward) took him awhile to learn it didn't hurt to go forward. Like when you injury your body your brain protects it without you thinking about it. Good job and keep up the good work!

I have a thread that I started when I first started thinking it was ulcer that has what I've been doing here : Cinny's Ulcer Thread A lot of my information I found here: stomach ulcers in horses and hind gut ulcers

Mostly I have been giving him the 1/4 tube of Ulcer Guard a day, but the vet is switching us to the Rantidine to do an actual treatment as it's much much cheaper than the gastroguard/ulcerguard treatment by about 900 bucks.

The most important thing I have found to make him comfortable for rides, I found in the article and my vet agrees with it. Fill your horse's stomach before the ride. I have found that giving him 2 cups of alfalfa pellets (the only alfalfa in his diet) with about 25 tums as I'm prepping him for our ride makes a HUGE difference right now. My vet says later into the treatment it won't matter as much but it will always be a good idea to try to keep something in his tummy all day.

He also said to try something called a Nibblenet, which I found here...The NIBBLENET ® Slow Feeder Hay Bags - thenibblenet.com - Official website of The NIBBLENET ® Slow feeder Hay Bag - Slow Feed Hay Bags for Horses but they are a little pricey for me after everything else. It looks AWESOME though because your horse nibbles it's hay all day keeping something in it's stomach and he says that the saliva neutralizes stomach acid, another reason you want them to nibble all day.

Hope this helps, I'll be keeping updates on Cin's ulcer thread, I just posted the vid separate so that people who saw him be a jerk in my show vids can see how different he is now as some thought it was a training/back to basics issue. I do agree, we have basics to get back to, especially in my equitation, I am just happy we don't have to rewind quite so far.

That's interesting about the pellets before the ride because I've always felt like Ri rode better when I rode him after his evening meal and not before. I always assumed he was more content.... Something for me to think about huh?

I thought it looked fine.... I like when people zoom in, especially when I want to see my equitation, with all the dust in the air, it's hard to see what's going on without the zoom ha ha.
