Topic Happy Hour!

Hello Everyone,

The new Equestrian Forum is a place where you can discuss the various topics related to horse riding in the real world in general.
We started off by posting the topics for our players in the Equestrian forum ourselves.
But today is a bit of a special day!

To make it easier for you as well as for the team, we have decided to open the possibility for players to post directly in the Equestrian Forum during limited time intervals.
We are going to call them the "Topic Happy Hours" on Howrse!

You'll have until 2014-01-20 16:30 to go to the Equestrian Forum and post your topic.
Of course to avoid offending some sensitivities and getting into fights about debatable issues, some topics will be avoided due to their nature. (For instance horse slaughter isn't something we discuss in this forum)

To that effect, the team will be with you in the forum and will eventually moderate some topics if they offer a likely risk of generating a debate. (We reserve ourselves the right to decide what type of topics could generate debates.)
Don't take it personally if we do close your topic, it's simply a question of keeping the best possible atmosphere in the Equestrian Forum and offer a nice place to be to the whole community.

We also reserve ourselves the possibility of closing the "Topic Happy Hour" early if the amount of topics becomes a little too important to handle.


Please do not post more than two or three topics at most, other player also have ideas and the aim isn't to find out who can post the most topics about any horsey themed things as possible in the minimum amount of time.

We hope you'll take a lot of pleasure during and after the Howrse Topic Happy Hours!

The Howrse Team

hi everyone
Really liking the idea of 'Happy Hour' gives the players a chance to chat about real life horses and chose their own topics of interest! Fantastic idea default smiley ;) Don't want to go too crazy with it though, so I think I'll leave it at 2 questions...for now. default smiley (lol)

The best way to find out is to get your local vet to take a look at him default smiley ;) Web advice won't replace a professional eye hands on default smiley :)

You should get someone to have a look at him (preferably a vet - but you could also suffice with an instructor or experienced horse person). It could be various things, such as:
1. The saddle doesn't fit
2. The bridle doesn't fit
3. Wash or change your saddlecloth as it could be rubbing/too thin/dirty
4. He could have girth issues - do you have an anti-gall girth? My mare also needs a sheepskin cover on her girth when I ride her because she's sensitive.
5. It could be you as a rider (this is not meant as offense). You could be doing something that you're not aware of like kicking him in the flank by accident etc.
6. He could be a bit sour - if you work him a lot continuously he might just need a break

That's all I can think of at the moment, but your best bet - as Ow said - is to get someone to look at him for you.
