    I have to ask how you know it is not dog related, since Toby came out of the woods AFTER the dog started barking. It would be much more reasonable to assume that the dog had nothing to do with it if...

    Thank you! I wanted to point this out on Facebook. There are several people who are sure that the dog wasn't the problem since Toby came out of the woods behind the leg and off balance, but they...

    I don't have any advice, but I do have that same problem. I have some major ankle issues from sports injuries, so I always assumed that was why. I'll be interested to see if it could be something...

    Thanks guys! I haven't had any lucky, which I expected since most nannies don't also ride. Maybe I'll still get lucky and someone who knows a nanny will see this :)

    Jumper nannies

    I know that this is a weird question, and I'm actually not expecting any replies, but I figure it can't hurt to at least ask.
    I'm the nanny to a pro jumper. We winter in Wellington and travel about...

    I was there for 2 weeks this month for a H/J show, and I notice any of those problems. I guess the H/J shows must be run differently. The Farmhouse was open for lunch and we had good food there with...

    It never resulted in a sale because they wouldn't accept any bids under a certain dollar amount. Slightly misleading for an auction claiming to be "without reserve".

    Mine is only sort of horse related. I'm the nanny to a pro rider :lol:

    Ever since seeing these at the WEG I've coveted them :)

    I haven't read all of the responses, but after getting the general feel for the tone I wanted to add my 2 cents. I have a unique perspective, because I have a "child", but I'm not a parent. I'm his...

    Slightly off topic, but I was once bitten pretty badly in the process of feeding a paste of bute pills to a horse, and when I went into the ER for debridement the doctor was amazed that I felt...

    I also completely agree with the decision. In my line of work (nanny) employers frequently try to hire unknowing household staff as independent contractors to get out of paying their share of taxes....

    Agree that it's an obnoxious and not totally honest thing to do. Trainer is basically implying by using the pictures that she has something to do with the success of this pair, and from the OP it...

    Also just wanted to add, advance welcome to the area :)
    There's a monthly Middleburg meet-up for eventers (and whoever else wants to join) and it's a great place to meet other riders. It's typically...

    Have you asked the farm that you'll be working at? From what I know, typically if a facility takes working students they either have housing for them available, or they know where housing can be...

    High Scope was definitely fence related. Whether or not he had a cardiac event leading up to the fence is something I can't say for sure, but he hit the jump.

    I know you're not looking for input on the job itself, but the bolded section is something that I'm a bit confused/concerned about. Do you expect this person to be available 24/7? If your worker has...

    I'm also in the "no grays" camp, though I wouldn't turn a horse down based on color alone. As a kid I rode at a barn with lots of grays. They were all lovely, dappled, and in varying hues, and now 10...

    Well I'm down 4 lbs so far :) I'm able to lose 10 pounds without noticing any difference so we'll see what happens when I reach that mark. Whether I can lose more than 10 lbs will be the big test.

    Hmm well my friends and I used to "joust" with crops, does that count? :lol:

    Doing it for "real" definitely sounds fun!
