    My mare showed up with an injury to her hock. It appears to be from a kick by a horse with shoes. I just moved her to a new barn. Being that this is my first horse I have not had to deal with an injury this severe until now. There's significant swelling and a deep cut. She walks and stands fine...

    Hey guys, In september i was riding a horse that my coach owns and we took a sharp corner (jumpers) and she tripped. At first we thought she broke her leg but after looking at it we came to the conclusion it wasnt broken. She could put weight on it. So in the last months she has been on stall...

    I have a 16 year old fox trotter/walker mix. I rode her in a parade and we did nothing but walk and at the end, she came up lame on her rear left leg. Nobody knows what happened to her, and 2 weeks later she's still limping a little. There's no swelling or visible marks, and she still wants to...

    Hi, I board my horses at a large stable in FL. I have 9 horses, 7 of which are rescues. I fell in love with a black stallion thoroughbred who was dumped there by his owner sometime around April 2010. The horse is beautiful but the owner never visits or anything. About two months ago he developed...
