My horse has poor conformation especially in her canon bones and feet. We have tried normal shoes, bell boots, orthopedic gels, terrain boots, nothing is keeping her shoes on. What can I do ?
I would get a farrier in to look into why the hooves won't hold a shoe and in the meantime go barefoot and put on a supplement for Hoover growth and use hoof ointment daily
How to train horse to give to the pressure, lower their head and come to contact without using neckstretcher? She fights side reins tooth and nail.
Really set her back on her hind quarters and drive the power from the backend, she will start to lower her head after a couple laps around the ring :)
How to recover and gain confidence after a bad fall ?
I had a bad fall last winter and started from the basics all over again, some ppl like to jump right back into the swing of things but I had a lot of lessons and rides where it was just walk trot canter. Don't be nervous everything will come back and it will fade :)
My mare goes around the arena perfect when we are going left, but when we go right she will not stay on the rail no matter what I try. She bulges so bad. How can I fix this?
Call chiro/massage and try to stretch her neck out by taking a carrot and putting it to her belly making her head turn to touch her belly ( this will help stretch out both sides and hopefully get her looser until a vet can come out)
