- Certainly. Your comment makes perfect sense. I think most novices equate a non-problem horse with the plodding old lesson horse that you have to pound on the ribs to get to a trot.
Glad you like the blog. I only get to work with most of those horses for a short time before the owner leases them out or sells them. Lots of seat of the pants work going on there. I haven't been out there at all this season. We're closing things out here stateside in preparation for moving to our retirement farm.
- Oh, no I didn't have surgery on my shoulder, one of the reasons that they kept me so long, everything was help together with tape, and I wasn't allowed to move much until it kind of stuck together. Also we have the joy of the Canadian Health service, who don't want to let you go until you are fit. LOL< the final tally, was broken shoulder blade, and breast bone, 9 distinct breaks of fractures to the ribs, and a slightly bashed knee, all on the right, the left got off with a broken wrist. Then there was the punctured lung, all topped off by a great case of gravel rash just to make me look pretty! Your injuries were a lot worse from what I remember...
- Year ago I got drilled into the ground while trying to get on Ben, my big black guy, here you go http://www.horseforum.com/horse-talk...n-hard-363410/ there is the story. I hear you about the bra straps, that and when I am wearing loose tops in teh heat here it all creeps down my shoulder
- SOrry, I'll stop laughing in a minute! Yes, I am grateful that I have recovered nearly 100%, still a bit lopsided, and my ribs ache when it rains, but mostly I am good. I'm glad you found Blossom, you got her after your accident didn't you? I swear that if Gibbs hadn't already been here I may have never got back on a horse again.
- When I got my Paso Fino mare she was ridden in a side pull & I was told she didn't like a bit. I did try her w/a couple of different ones-she responded, but was uncomfortable. I had a bitless set-up-rode her in that sometimes, used a jumping hackamore a few times & did trail ride w/just a halter & looped leadrope. After a couple of years she started taking advantage when other horses moved away faster than she liked or on going downhills. So I went to a snaffle, then found a French link in a parelli headstall. That turned out to be perfect. The picture of that is in my profile, I believe. After 2 years of no bits, & really getting to know me & our trails, it was no longer an issue.

Posted On: 07-27-2014, 02:42 AMI doubt the trim caused one sided lameness. The horse probably slipped, or stepped in a hole. Follow the VEts instructions, and ask the farrier to be a tad more cautious. Some farriers get lazy,...Liked On: Yesterday, 06:48 PM
