    Certainly not a BNR. Thanks for the more realistic view of $$.

    Thanks for your opinions, I was really looking to see if this was an option where I could earn a bit of extra cash. I am not connected with a trainer at the moment - but maybe that's worth...

    If you are not a FB addict, then just leave it off there - I am so addicted to FB, so I would post up the news that the horse has the potential to be sound. Then if you make more posts about this,...

    I'd ask why too, as it seems like you are leaving anyway - and if asked politely and without a reaction, then there's nothing to lose.

    But I think asking and expecting the truth in response is a...
  6. Is there a market for lightweight adults as pony tune up riders?

    Let me start by saying, I am not a trainer, would never claim to be - but have ridden all my life, and am almost 40. I am 120lbs after a Holiday meal, usually I average around 110-115lbs, and am...

    It's a problem, that I think the industry needs a better answer to, maybe a contract is signed for full purchase value, or maybe that exists and I just buy lower end horses.

    Fairfax, you say the most bizarre things. Your first part of your statement tends to be logically, and then that goes out of the window, and your second part is so bizarre.

    I am an immigrant here, I am welcomed everywhere I go, because I am white and have a 'cute accent', as I am English.

    I think it's easy for most parents when thinking of kids, to think of young ones. As a foster parent of delinquent teenage boys, that's not always my first thought.

    Man that's harsh!

    But for some people, I would add with vomiting between your open legs on the toilet as it's hitting both ends at once.

    My former mare had some serious issues. I took her back to basics, restarted, and didn't ride her for a year. Spent thousands, on a $1k horse trying to find out what was wrong, nothing. Spent...

    Dover has to pay for all those catalogs somehow. You'd think they would realize who buys online, so likely shops online, and not send out as many catalogs.

    Most violent video games are rated M, and cannot be purchased by someone under 18. If kids are playing them, then there's an adult somewhere buying them for them.

    I know nothing about driving, but based on what I just read it makes sense that he shouldn't have jumped down.
