  1. Horse Health
    Hi all, I have a mare, there is having some problems when it rains. When I'm going to get her from the field while it rains, she often behaves very different from how she normally acts, she throws her head up and down or rub her eyes against her leg whenever there it rains, my conclusion is...
  2. Horse Health
    My mare (French Trotter, 12-13 yo) has australian stringhalt since 2017 (due to flatweed intoxication). Until this year she hasn't had any issues since the first time it appeared. Unfortunately, her stringhalt worsened this autumn from the moment the weather started getting colder and wetter...
  3. Trailer and Horsebox queries
    Sorry if this has already been asked. Do you guys keep your trailer out on its own all year round? Mine aren't the prettiest thing in the world but seems to be common practice in my neck of the woods. I would think it would be best to have them under a carport or something... What do you think?
  4. General Off Topic Questions & Discussion
    I placed this under off-topic because... it's sort of a riding-wear question and sort of not. Somehow, in my life as a Kentuckian, college student, and adult... I've never owned an actual waterproof piece of outerwear. I'd like to remedy that, as I'll be riding and visiting the barn this...
  5. Horse Health
    Hello everyone! I am going to soon buy a young horse, and plan to go look at it very soon. Here's the problem; The place I am getting the horse from is about 10 degrees warmer, not including wind chill, than it is here. It has been a long cold snap for us, and it gets down to 10 degrees with...
  6. Horse Talk
    I think we can all agree that we wouldn't work our horses during a hurricane or tornado. But is there a point (excluding major storms) where you draw the line? I won't ride if it's snowing or raining heavily (or "quickly") and I won't ride when it's windy in the winter. Or if it gets below 20...
  7. Horse Health
    I live in a part of Nevada where it gets pretty cold but hardly snows. Right now it has been cold and snowing for about 48 hours straight and the wind is starting to pick up. They live in a medium sized pen where mud puddles easily form and stay for days even with sunny weather and have no...

    Has anyone on here tried the Solstice Waterproof Leather Boot from SmarPak? I really like the look of it and the waterproofness of it is a bonus because where I live it rains a lot and I HATE having to carry my riding boots with me PLUS my rain boots :P I live in Canada so I'd have to have them...
  9. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    So, my horse and I have finally found our niche in the horse world-jumping! I started taking jumping lessons and was very happy to find out that my horse has a lot of talent in it. Although, then every time I worked her I felt terrible. Why? Because I live in Phoenix AZ where it's already been...
  10. Hoof health and Care
    It seems that everyone's trying to find the right balance between a hoof that isn't dry and brittle, and one that isn't overly saturated with moisture. It seems people put on all the different hoof dressings and conditioners during the dry months, like winter, when the horses feet are a little...
  11. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    My horse is a very woolly BLM mustang and he tends to shed very late. It's already mid-April and he's still fluffy as can be. He's only *just* started showing a tiny bit of sleek summer coat on his shoulders. His coat was the same way last year and he was *miserable*. Didn't completely lose his...
  12. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hey! I'm new here, but I needed some help with blankets :) I'm boarding my pony (13 hands) at a stable now, and it has an indoor arena and a barn (not heated), and paddocks with a wind shelter for him. It gets pretty cold where I live (generally -20 Celsius, sometimes -35), so I was needing a...
  13. Horse Health
    I just recently moved to Wyoming to attend the University. I moved my horse from Colorado to go there. So she is used to some pretty cold weather. However it is quite a bit colder up here. Now she is sore, it looks like her hips, and her hocks make a popping sound when she walks out. (like on...
