    Yes, indeed.

    Perhaps they currently ride in a field. And/or they haven't been training the horses to do A or B, but now they want to so they can make them more sellable. I figure if they want to...

    Owner's reply to "but I told you they were sold," was " I thought you were joking." This, when Pro informed wife and husband in separate phone calls, AND emailed them the same.

    role reversal

    My question for the OP, is how would you view the situation of the roles were reversed? What if the individual rode the horse, the horse seemed to improve, and then when you got on the next day you...

    Goodness gracious. Breath deeply my dears. Calm down.

    When I have a horse that I am looking to 'share expenses' on, I advertise it AS SUCH. Usually under the heading 'partial lease.'

    Too Loose

    A devoted Mary Wanless fan myself, I will (roughly) suggest a technique of hers. Imagine you have a string going down the front of you and a string going down the back. Both front and back strings...

    I do not think you will find that all people have had the same experience with insurance companies. It is not so easy to find a veterinarian who swear to the notion that this or that horse will...
