    I don't know what the issue is. You bought him, legally. They sold him, legally. It was their business to have him checked out or not, and it was their decision to sell without full diagnosis. Why...

    If you don't have drop windows, you can hang an empty bucket in the stall before loading, and offer water through a large gas can (filled with water from home preferably) when you stop. If you get...

    The answer is always simple for me: is he, or is she, worth the money and above all, time, for me to continue to ride with him or her? At the end of each session, do I learn something important for...

    Seriously, never assume how late other folks stay. My "normal" hours is 8-5. When do I get in? When I get in, and that usually means 7:45am ~ 10:30am. When do I get out? When I get out, and that can...

    By the way, there are plenty of times when I search for my car keys frantically, only to find them held securely in...

    You said she was anxious when she leaves the wall? If that is the case, I'd do a half circle, and just halt and sit and chill somewhere off the wall, eventually working up to X. Maybe giving her a...

    Half halt is done when the hind leg you want to influence is on the ground, usually with outside rein because that is the leg we usually want to stay in the ground longer. This is to ask the horse to...

    I don't know how you can "refuse" to pay. It is common for personal accounts and non-personal accounts to carry different fees. Besides, just because she enters them the same way on both accounts on...

    So "IF" they were not compressed, you would need...
