  5. What Exactly IS Thrush?

    I know it's in the horse's foot. But I never really understood what it does. How does it effect the hoof? What can happen if you don't treat it? Can you ride a horse with thrush?

  7. personal a relationship with your trainer, How Far?

    My trainer is one of the best friends I will *ever* have. She's amazing. She wants everyone to be comfortable so everything is relaxed she tries to be everyones friend. She knows everything about us it seems like. If we're upset she wants to talk to us about it, if we're mad she was to know if she can do anything. She would honestly do anything for any of us.

  11. Flies, Flies, and more Flies

    Weve have good luck with Repel-X. But the Flix stuff burned our horses and gave them these massive areas of scabs and such.

  15. Heels, heels heels. Ugh. *Problem*

    Ok, I've been riding English for about two years nows. Ever since I started, it was clear this was the disapline I was destined to ride. I've always had nice equitation, never really any comments from trainers or judges to fix anything with my equitation, except for the occasional puppy paws. My heels never came up. All was fine and dandy until one show. I was and an "event" and riding a mare, whom had had some problems in the past no one wanted to ride her for she was the "witchy mare", I bonded with this mare very well, thus started riding her and showing her. At this particular show, I was jumping stadium and at only my third fence something odd happened. The mare did something funky over the fence, I never really discovered what she did over that fence, I don't remember anything about it except the fall. I fell over her shoulder, landing on my head, getting stepped on by this mare on her way out. I suffered a sever head ache for a few days and a broken wrist. I couldn't ride for a few months. I could finally ride again, and it was obvious that I had suffered a bad fall. My equitation was all over the place, I rode hunched over, heels up in case of falling, I wanted out of there quick. Over time, my problems fixed themselves, and my nice equitation was back, or so I thought. Ever since my first couple lessons back, I've noticed my heels coming up more and more. I push them down right when I get on, and they stay like that. For all of five minutes, before we start our real work. I lose my stirrups constintly at the canter and over fences. I have no problem staying on or anything, just staying in my heel. Yet, on the flat, and the walk, trot, and some horses' canter, I'm fine with having my feel up, I find it much easier to leg yeild with it up. But once I realise what I'm doing, I shove it right back down, and it insists on coming right back up. My trainer is constintly telling me to keep my heels down. And she just doens't understand how hard I have to work at this now. I want to know what I can do to fix this. I've gotten over everything else about that fall. I ride anything and everything my trainer throws at me, I do whatever they ask me to do on that horse, and everythings fine. Then I remeber that show, and up come those heels. They don't want to stay down there. And I don't know what to do. I work so hard on it in every lesson that sometimes I get carried away and lose focus on other things. Thus getting in even more trouble. Is there anything I can do, or do I just have to keep shoving them down everytime they come up? I've tried shortening my stirrups, and that just hurts me, and makes it even harder. Help.
  16. Heels, heels heels. Ugh. *Problem*

    I rode today, and was really imprssed with my heels. I've been stretching them like some suggested, and it's going really well.

  18. Heels, heels heels. Ugh. *Problem*

    I do have knee problems, like injured knees, from running, and having my heels down puts a lot of stress on them for some reason causeing them to really hurt. I'm thinking this may have something to do with it. I have jointed stirrups already, and becaseu they are jointed it just makes the problem worse, so when my new saddle gets here, I'm not using the jointed stirrups any more, they just make it harder for me cause they move with my foot when it goes up. Thanks guys, your advice has helped tremendously. These past two weeks I've been riding everyday and my heels are getting so much better.
