    So sad. I hope we will hear what happened to this beautiful boy.

    Horses are so fragile, we tend to forget. I put down my first heart horse this year and it was the toughest thing I ever did.

    They start out a little sensitive from the rocks but...

    I guess we will see how he feels. I can always put front shoes on at shoes if he gets uncomfortable.

    I agree, the shows are hard on him. He is out all day and night at my house, so the box stall at the show really worries him.

    I have only had shoes on him a couple times. I always take them off if he isn't doing much.

    I am riding him regularly now, but your right he doesn't jump a lot at home. He is out all day in pasture and arena so he runs and plays with brothers, so his fitness is fine but as far as jumping...

    What does your young horse do? Hunters or jumpers. That will matter in choosing a trainer.

    He is six. His training is sporadic as I keep him at home and when I have the money he goes to my trainers place. I am perfectly capable of riding him at home, my arena is just small so it is not...

    Everybody is speculating a lot.

    Still no answers on how old this mare in and if she has had training.

    My now 6 year old scared the crap out of me when he was 4 and I had to send him to a...

    Yeah, I do plan on doing that!

    Problem is the facility charges a lot for stalls at the shows and the show coordinater charges tons of fees as well.

    I am very stingy on what classes I actually...

    Main issue is that I don't have my own trailer.

    That is my next goal but I have to sell one of my young horses first.

    I wish there were more schooling shows around here. They are geared more towards new riders on school horses though.

    Every time I go to one I feel out of place because my horse is the only one...
