    Opinions / past experience / advice for intermittent behaviour change

    Ah…that blood coming from both sides is a worry One side at a time can be a blood vessel popping through exercise or excitement or similar but both sides might indicate something further up How soon can your vet come?

    Opinions / past experience / advice for intermittent behaviour change

    I guess from a bone scan I’d be looking for an indication of malformation somewhere that would cause sharp pain but not otherwise show up on other imaging modalities It would tell you whether there was something there but not help you with whether or not it was fixable If money is no object I...

    Opinions / past experience / advice for intermittent behaviour change

    Small rider ...big horse

    No I take it as a massive compliment but I do think we should all practice telling people as kindly as possible they are too fat for their horses

    Are ex-racers as high maintenance as its claimed?

    I think if you know one ex-racer then you know precisely one ex racer I’ve ridden and owned a few over the years, both in training, in rehab and as riding horses and they are all so different I think flat horses might end up being more fragile because they are started far too young and their...

    My horse had a fit this morning

    Just to say it doesn’t necessarily mean the end of his ridden career completely There’s a specialist neurologist at the London vet school who could probably advise further but I carried on riding mine after his seizures (not directly after obviously)

    Sue dysan - made up expert

    Absolutely this As I posted above there are quite a few terrible vets who never even face infractions, then there are those that do and are treated very leniently despite deliberately harming animals and knowingly putting people at risk of injury or death. Sue has never done any of these...

    My horse had a fit this morning

    Oooh that has triggered a thought for me I’d say working in a firm outline suddenly might well cause a compression in the neck or poll That might be your cause right there

    Sue dysan - made up expert

    And yet there is a vet near me who regularly commits acts of fraud, financial dishonesty and terrible clinical practice and the RCVS refuse to take complaints seriously at all...not to mention the lovely David Smith in Kent who has been barred more times than a ballerina but still turns up doing...

    opinion on size of rider?

    I'm a similar height and weight to you and that would be way too small for me

    My horse had a fit this morning

    My horse has had fits in the past. It's terrifying to see, you have my sympathies. I found that neuro conditions are poorly understood in horses compared to humans and dogs so isolating a particular cause was tricky to impossible. However this was 5 years ago so things may hopefully have...

    Does anyone subscribe to the David Marlin members content?

    The same reason he has the nerve to set up ‘clinical trials’ (I use the term in the loosest possible sense) that support the use of the supplements his own company produces

    Are Bates saddles really all that bad?

    I've just seen that dissection video I didn't like that very much I must say, especially not how flat the foam went under pressure

    Are Bates saddles really all that bad?

    My saddler explained that Cair is better likened to a very thick gel with tiny pockets of air like an Aero chocolate bar rather than the big pockets of Flair You could think of it as a bit of a squishy step up from a more traditional close contact with memory foam
