    So I think I may have finally figured out a way to move forward into the horse community more. It's definitely hard to get a foot into it when you don't grow up riding horses. Anyway, so basically, I had someone suggest a site called Yard and Groom. There are a few apprenticeship type...

    Horse arrived home from a traveling 24+ hours home from a show in good spirits. I noticed that his left front looks quite weird, but it is not hot or sensitive. It looks to me to be the lateral digital extensor, but I'm not sure. He trots sound, but it looks significantly different and...
