    Where the heck is our post?
  2. A Ag Speech on Drugging Horses! Help!

    There are any number of drugs that can be used to enhance a horses performance either by speeding him or slowing hin down or masking an injury. Acepromizine,Phenylbutezone, Banamine, Demosodan,(sp)Alcohol blocks, and the list goes on. A good source for this type of info would be your local vet.

  4. Wanted affirmation about what trainer said

    Keiger Mustang, I'm new to the world of online training and the world of computers in general,but am an old hand at horses. I have read with interest this entire post and would suggest that in a situation like yours that there are some questions that you need to answer for yourself. Do I have the ability and knowledge to train this horse? Are the frustration and aggravation and time spent worth it to me? Can I afford to be laid up from an injury should a serious accident take place? What are all of my options? Do I understand the instructions of my Horsecity friends well enough to put them into action? Some horses are very difficult to train although I have never met one that I thought was untrainable.Ihave met several that I didn't believe were worth the effort, and I ride problem horses for others. Having said all of that I will now go back to your original question. I have made the same recommendation in the past, but always stated it as if it was me. Only you can make the decision that is right for you and whatever it is I'll be pulling for you. Keep us posted and proceed cautiously.

  6. Question on teaching a saddle horse to pack

    Some horses take to packing easier than others but if the are reasonably well trained it is usually not a big issue. "Horses Hitches and Rocky Trails" is a really valuable tool. It is probably available through Western Horseman Magazine. I still use it after 10-12 years packing.
