    Emphasize Lizrd's point - read the fine print. You're buying a horse, not adopting a baby. Several of these organizations have very onerous agreements that we will not agree to.

    Howard's rules:
    1. There are plenty of good, solid horses (probably with limited experience, but not always) for $5k. Don't go to the sales barns (or to us), go to the tremendous number of really...

    Hadn't seen this post for a while, always love to come back to it and see the additions. Couple of comments:

    Dixieland Band - we like him a lot. Megan took a Jambalaya Jazz son to the 3* and...

    Support the With Approval comment. We've sold 3 or more of his babies/grandbabies, talented and good jumpers. To the best of my knowledge, all are still eventing - the two I still see are...

    Queeny Park in St. Louis June 13-14 or Dunnabeck in Carbondale, IL, September 12 -13 are good bets for you. Local HT's, exact opposite of Rolex but I like them better.

    Perhaps I misunderstand your quote, but why would you invest $3500 in repair for a tractor that's only worth $3500? My rule of thumb is no more than 50% of the value of the vehicle whether it's a...

    If I understand your query, the only reason you need a formal ring is to endure heavy use. If you can spread your schooling out over the pastures, such that you don't cause wear patterns, that's...

    No experience with Waredaca, but we've run multiple horses/students at both Indiana and Team Challenge and found them to be awesome. Highly recommend both, although I prefer the footing at the KHP.

    Soil survey data is awesome, and I've found it very accurate. But for specific installations you need to get very specific to your site.

    Silty loams/sandy/gravel do not make good bases. Haul in...

    If you have proper drainage and a good base, no maintenance is required other than to prevent incursion of grass.

    We had not ridden on or drug our outdoor arena all winter (since October) before...

    We've built three - a 100 x 200 all weather outdoor, a small dressage arena, and an indoor. You don't want to know what the indoor cost (we saved for a LOT OF YEARS for that one). The 100 x 200 had...

    Do enough research to understand pricing function of east coast vs mid continent. You should also understand the price function for ulr vs mlr vs llr, and why a ulr/big name would be selling a...

    Malibu Moon. Great sire line (have you ever seen an AP Indy who couldn't jump?) And the best mares in the business.

    We also love our Pulpit babies - they're talented, but their biggest asset is...

    In general, we back them in the 3 year old summer, then turn them back out. We'll start flat work in the winter and begin jumping in the spring of their 4 yo year. Circumstances, actual birthdate,...

    Yep, you. You're clinching with your lower leg because you're concerned about his jump. As previous post said, fix your position and balance, don't clinch. Confirmation of inadequate balance is...

    In my world, selling a foal in the US is nearly impossible. Some breeders are successful, but I suspect they have a developed/captured market.

    We're most successful selling ours as backed 4...

    Isn't it wonderful to have options? Whichever you choose, enjoy!

    Welcome to Ashland! Lots of horses, lots of places/ways to ride - few if any of them eventing. To the best of my knowledge, I'm the only event connection on the Kentucky side of the river. We keep...

    We've done it once. Please do not generalize my experience to others, but here's what occurred for us:

    Because of Consul's age, you'll have to use frozen so make sure your mare is suitable. That...

    Fun seeing these old posts resurrected, and realizing the changes that time brings to all of us. Megan now has an indoor, and Jenn is building one!
