Hi All - I'm new to the St Augustine FL area and looking to get back into riding [endurance racing specifically]
I'm looking for a good self care facility or someone's person farm who wants to board a horse.
Im new to the sport of endurance racing and as a retired track guy myself Im looking to adopt and partner with an OTTB to have some fun and keep our competitive juices flowing.
Any and all advice is welcome and appreciated. Thanks everyone!
Hi all, Just wondering if anyone has seen this before: I’ve recently begun leasing an older (17ish), new to our barn OTTB that constantly rests his weight off his hind right (in cross-ties or under saddle). Not uncommon, and I’d imagine it’s due to some pre-existing sacroiliac damage. The odd bit is that when he takes his weight off his hind right, he also stretches his fore-left way forward...? It makes for an awkward halt for sure :D He’s generally sound, though we’re only just very slowly working him back into shape, and is sorely lacking any conditioning. He also has a gnarly habit of tripping quite substantially and quite often on both reins, and at all speeds (conditioning or otherwise, hard to say). I’m just wondering if anyone has seen this hind-reat/fore-stretch action before, and has any ideas about what it may be?
