Equine Motivation Use horses’ two main motivators, safety and comfort, to your advantage. Train your horse by making him comfortable when he’s doing what you’d like and uncomfortable when he’s not. He must learn to keep doing what he was asked until he’s asked to do something different.
When it Comes to EPM Not Just Any Treatment Will Do | USEA Stumbling. Weakness and muscle atrophy in the hind end. Behavioral changes. Any of these could be a sign your horse has equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM) and it can have devastating effects on a horse’s ability to perform. The best way to keep your horse from getting the disease is to avoid exposing him to opossum feces. Keeping a clean barn and property to avoid attracting opossums into feed sources is important.
What Shape are My Horse’s Feet In? | TheHorse.com Even horses with less-than-ideal feet can lead sound and productive careers. The “ideal” foot is quite rare but deviations from optimal angles and shape are not the end of the world. With consistent, proper care it is possible to manage most hoof types, and horses can function successfully in their designated capacities.
Fall Vaccines for Your Horse | TheHorse.com Horses might need additional risk-based vaccines in the fall months, depending on location and activities. It’s always important to work with your veterinarian to determine optimal vaccine protocol.
