    Would you be mad if someone opened your birthday cards?

    Someone would straight up get a slap!

    Vet scan costs

    The thoratic vertabrae; just double checking because that's where we sit, I'm assuming. He just keeps throwing his head down, even after he's had the physio and osteo. But he doesn't do it when you lean your whole weight on him, just when you sit on him. He's not sore or tetchy...I'm thinking KS?

    Vet scan costs

    Just so I can steel myself for the upcoming bill. Would anyone know the average cost of a back scan? There's something up with my boy.

    Spring is underway! When are you going back to 24/7 turnout?

    Still got my field sectioned off as the grass hasn't come back to what I'd like yet, but hopefully, April is our month!

    Muscle wastage/atrophy

    Yep, you've got it in one. She's happy with the new saddle and I've got excersises to help this. It was on both sides, clearly showing the pinching and he should be in medium work but I've had my confidence knocked so badly it's not even considered light work at the moment. When I got him, he...

    Muscle wastage/atrophy

    He's on Soft n Soak Solution Mix and Mollichaff Calmer. But I've got an open bag of Calm and Condition, so I'm splitting that and the Chaff. My physio suggested something to do with Baileys but I've totally forgotten the number.

    Muscle wastage/atrophy

    Nudi - thanks for the tips about the Sudi pads, I'm looking at them now. Long reining I can do, and lunging I can do, thank you :D And definitely hillwork.

    Muscle wastage/atrophy

    The muscles behind his shoulders/withers. And I'm not switching as such, but it's more ruling out anything else the pysio hasn't. He's 15, I had him for 9 months and the bad fitting saddle was my mistake.

    Muscle wastage/atrophy

    Hi guys, So, I've had the physio out for my boy and there is a ton of atrophy from where his saddle fitted so poorly before and although she was great with giving me a few excersises to work on from the ground, which I've been doing, and lunging; what else can I do to help him gain that...

    What does bolting mean to you?

    After looking through all of these, you're right. He's just a bit of a knob, I think in that case. Thank god.

    What does bolting mean to you?

    Hmm, this clears a little up for me then, he stops at fences, well, I say stops, has enough presence of mind to stop, avoid them. So maybe he's just pissing off with me, but I have no breaks at all...

    What does bolting mean to you?

    Mine bolts and I think it is a total lack of trust and respect as well as bad riding on my part. I'm re-schooling him and having everything checked out. I have only fallen once from his bolts, and I now refuse to hack out on open fields. It's not a fun experience and yes, if you consider if you...

    Limited brakes!!

    Se can go walk then, the horse isn't hers. "Just coping" can end you in hospital, if the original combination worked, then it worked. I would go with the original combo and reschool and lunge like everyone is saying. That's how I bring my boy back to basics. Eventually an eggbutt might work but...

    Tips to get a horse more forward :)

    This is perfect, pretty much what I was going to say. Half-halts are also a great way to get them listening; I have a horse that can become a little stiff and wooden if he gets bored, so I spent a good two or so months on half-halts and just improving my position in the saddle and now; even in...
