    Hi Y'all! So this isnt about a specific horse. I am doing a paper on the controversy around race horses. I DO NOT want this to turn into a debate and am not trying to force opinions on anyone. I am looking for good articles or websites, books, journals etc. That contain information about...

  6. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    My horse has been off for about 3 months due to his injuries (not bad). I was wondering how I could SLOWLY work back into jumps. I don't want him to go straight be into 3'-4' like we were doing. I want to only go up to 2' for now but slowly get there. Any tips on how I could get there with...
  7. General Riding queries
    (Sorry, long)I trail ride pretty frequently on my 7 yr old QH mare, and was bucked off on the way back from a pretty normal ride (a few "distractions" but nothing unusual). Ended up with a broken femur because i hit a tree- so convalescing now, hearing all sorts of comments from non-rider...
  8. Member Journals
    Well I figured I should start a journal here to pass the time because I won't be riding for at least a year and a half. I have two horses and board at the most wonderful place in the world. It has no arena (other than fields and the BO's front yard and a roundpen) and doesn't look like much from...
  9. Rider Wellness
    I don't know if this is in the right place but I need some comforting/guidance. I recently (as in two days ago) fractured my knee while moving hay. I've not gone in for an MRI yet (have an appointment tomorrow) but I've basically been told that it looks like my PCL is wrong. I'm hoping that I'm...

  13. Horse Health
    Ok, so here is what happened. I believe that my horse pulled his upper left shoulder muscle. He pulled up limping a couple weeks ago. You could tell he was limping but it wasn't sever. It is most noticeable at an extended trot when the left leg extends forward. He doesn't extend the left leg as...
