    That's so funny.

    Yeah, pony club.

    I would look for a polo magazine - he might aspire to polo, hunting, and show jumping. I would collect some good youtube videos to sit down with him and show him, too - polo...

    Wow, very informative post, Kysteke - and I quoted that phrase you quoted from your farrier. That made me laugh.

    This is actually interesting about Arabs, because I have never actually owned, and I can't recall if I have ever even ridden, an arab. Some mixes yes, but I have been very involved with OTTBs which...

    Frankly, that's the only thing I could come up with, myself. I mean, who lets this kind of thing into their brain that deeply? When you are unrelated to the issue? If I was leasing a horse and the...

    Ha, that's like at one farm I boarded at, they had an ex eventer there. Horses sometimes were aloowed to graze around the the outside of the barn. There was perimiter fencing, but this was outside of...

    Towns will even want farm land rezoned like this so badly they will find ways to squeeze farmers out of being zoned for their farm, to make them sell, so it can be rezoned as residential, so its not...

    I agree - the former farm land was rezoned for housing, and the zoning change was a big deal at the time; the town now has those lots taxed as residential lots, and I don't know if the current land...

    Oh, thank you, U2NG, now I don't have to say it.

    How can you not know what flatwork to do if you have schooled this horse to 3rd? no horse riding 3rd rushes and is incapable of going in a...
  11. If he's not keeping shoes on for more than 4...

    If he's not keeping shoes on for more than 4 weeks, his trim is bad. He probably has long toes and low heels - that in its self will make a horse stop jumping. If you aren't keeping shoes on him,...

    This is a horse who is challenging you and you are not equipped to handle him. He has not been trained and needs basic manners and ground work, and you, OP need basic training on how to handle an...

    yes, Munchausen and Munchausen by proxy. The articles shows how long she's been whacked out seeking attention. I'm sure it stems from long before this, though. Her son was a vehicle to keep going...
  14. Nobody should ever, under any circumstances,...

    Nobody should ever, under any circumstances, touch another person's tack for any reason what so ever. You should provide lockable tack lockers so this is basically not going to happen.

    I would...

    I would only make jumping while observed by someone else a rule for children. I would consider having a requirement for insisting there is a second person on the property if an adult is jumping, but...

    Penalties are you will be asked to leave the premises immediately unless you can comply.

    Footwear should be "sturdy, covered foot" and if riding, a heel as well.

    Helmets when riding mandatory...

    I agree. When I took lessons on trainer horses, I would walk in the barn and call out "Where's my boy? There you are! Just standin there waitin for your best girl. I knew it." A half lease? I am...

    I am one of those people who really learn from their mistakes, really. I cross my fingers what I don't get lost on the first drive out to a new place. If I get lost, you can bet when I make the same...

    You keep saying you're missing something, but I wonder what? I mean, are you under the impression that other people with farms keep clean? What farm world are you in? If all you have to go on is your...

    If you don't try shoeing his hinds, like the vet said, apparently not.

    I'm surprised standing martingales are show legal, so there you go. I have no experience using one with a figure eight, but personally wouldn't unless I also had a regular cavesson on the bridle as...

    I'd purely love it if Leslie called them about it. Specifically, if she called the guy and told him that photo was of her, not Heather. Leslie just may not care all that much. I imagine there are...

    I guess others recognized that. I wonder what the principals (other than Heat.her) would say if they read that thread. And realized that Leslie claims the photo as her own. I wonder what Leslie would...
