    Hooves & Power tools

    I'm really keen to give the dremel a go, even though the idea of power tools still makes me nervous . Just wondering how hot the hoof gets? Its a fair bit of a cheaper option than the hoof boss at this stage.

    Girthy Horses

    I still think continuing to working on your lateral softness Deb will help a lot with these two girls and just being sure to really take your time with your saddling procedure. What happens before you put the saddle/bareback pad on? Can you get a sniff when you offer it to them before you put it on. Do you offer it and take it away when they acknowledge it, same with doing your no yields with the bb pad. (Reward for try) What are they like? I'd like to see what is happening here to look at how they feel about the pad/saddle before it goes on. You may find some of the answer there... And of course get professional veterinary advice too, but even though they are mother and daughter they are so different physically Id be more inclined to think it may be something in your saddling procedure, they may need more time emotionally. I look forward to hearing what else is offered as a solution.

    Hooves & Power tools

    With 24 rock hard hooves to do I'm thinking maybe this is not such a bad idea!!!

    That’s fantastic Luna. I’m sure this will be a great help to teaching Darcy that he can balance himself and move his feet while travelling, well done!

    Hi Luna, Thanks for posting, that's really interesting to see thanks! I don't think there is one easy answer or solution, looks to me like because he's braced he's not flexing through his body and therefore can't balance himself properly and his hind feet don't move enough. The only thing I can say is to keep doing what you're doing to improve his emotion fitness and lateral softness. It may take time and perhaps many float trips for him to work it out. Just keep layering those positive experiences. When you see how braced they are while travelling it just makes you appreciate how hard they try for us when they load. (and Darcy is just a mild case!)
