    This has been such a lovely thread. I actually had a pretty good day today, so I can't blame our exceedingly troublesome President for anything.

    But something will probably go wrong tomorrow. So...

    In the US, the asking prices for exceptionally well-bred weanlings generally seem to be in the 8-12K range, though some are less and some are more. For a two year old, 10-15K. It's harder to know...

    But how is a buyer to know if they have a "serious inquiry" if they do not know the asking price of a horse? Like camohn, a great many buyers are just going to look at your ad, feel mildly irritated...

    Sellers, please please please provide a price if you are advertising a horse for sale. If the "price will increase with training" or is "negotiable to a show home" that is fine. But buyers really...

    Maybe there would be more qualified young horse trainers if people could make a decent living in this occupation. But sadly this is not the case in the US.

    This point bears repeating. I think a lot of young people think that if they become a really, really good rider many complete strangers will want to buy them horses and pay all of their competition...

    This.

    Never mind 5 and the dogsitter. The real nuts in this saga are the OP's parents. Who in the world hires a dog sitter when their own daughter and her dogs will be living in the house while...

    Not being a Reed fan her hair isn’t something I’ve ever noticed. But all the posts got me curious and I checked it out. Huh? She appears to have plain straight dark hair with the dreaded (generally...

    Don’t be ridiculous. Of course being rich changes things. Of course it makes life and success much easier, especially in the horse world. Yes, all normal humans think and feel and have happy and...

    This. And it bears repeating. Reed is funded by her very wealthy parents and always has been. Their money allowed her to have much success in a very expensive sport at an early age. I don’t call...

    Wow, what a great story both sad and happy. Congratulations and best wishes to Skyfall.

    I don’t think anyone is misrepresenting Doug’s article. The problem is that he offered NO innovative or practical solutions except that event organizers should reduce their prices and that prize...

    I agree with the majority opinion here. As others have said, where is the prize money supposed to come from if not from other competitors? Not going to be popular.

    I think Doug needs a reality...

    This, absolutely this. OP, your main problem isn't whether you do or don't want children (it's fine if you don't, fine if you do), but that your ex-SO is a complete jerk. A good guy who really wants...

    You don’t describe what sort of help you need. Do you mean a manual laborer who would muck, landscape, and fix fences? In that case, the pay should be equivalent to what handymen/landscapers earn...

    Yellowbritches is absolutely right. It’s hard to believe that people are defending this position and saying it’s a pretty good gig. Being full-time, live-in barn help in sole charge of 17+ horses...

    Thanks for asking. Hope and change is working fine for me. I'm better off now than during any Bush administration. No president is perfect, but Obama would still be my choice over Romney any day.

    I agree with others--very sad. What a cruel death that poor animal suffered. OP, that's not at all a fun story to share. It's not even very interesting. Just pathetically sad.

    No one on this thread was snotty except possibly you. Did you ever check out youtube and discover just how many many people post videos of bareback bridleless jumping? Pretty common really.

    I don't see anything amazing about these photos either. Do a youtube search. There are numerous videos of people jumping bareback with no tack, some with no hands.
