    Another Tribute fan here. Not a fan of Nutrena's "smart grain" technology which guarantees protein/fat/fiber but not consistent ingredients.

    Anyway, Essential K is their ration balancer. They...

    With dwindling show attendance and registrations, I think most breed organizations, AHA especially, are doing all they can to recruit new blood. You never know where someone will get bitten with the...

    More good points. As a mere peasant, I have no idea where the big spenders shop. I'm sure they have staff that shop for them.

    Maybe a better/different way to look at it would be to ask, what...

    Maybe it varies regionally too.

    I did searches on equine.com and dreamhorse.com for horses $50,000 and over, and the only things that came up in my search radius were dressage-trained warmbloods...

    Forgive my ignorance...AP?

    Nevermind, I guess you are referencing American Pharoah. I couldn't figure out a discipline with those initials...kept thinking All Purpose.

    I am sorry if I offended anyone by excluding racing...I just figured they would be the clear and convincing winner in this debate. I guess what I was trying to say is what "show" discipline fetches...

    Very interesting.

    I do have some (albeit what I'd consider limited) experience with Arabian barns, and I did not see a lot of high dollar horses, though I'm on the opposite coast from...

    I have a passier grand gilbert that I got a great deal on. The PS baum tree is famous for its short points which can accommodate many different shapes well. It is more minimalist, though mine has...
  9. Which non-racing discipline has the most expensive horses?

    I'm just being nosy.

    I'm sure there are outliers in every discipline, and we can all assume that the higher the level of showing, the more expensive the horse. But, in general, which discipline...

    There are a lot more qualified people to give advice on this board, but I'm in the process of re-schooling a western pleasure broke show horse (QH breeding, registered paint). He does not understand...

    I got an estimate of just over $300 to test both vitamin E and selenium. I did check with more than one vet just to be sure it was not an anomaly. Strange. I wonder if maybe the less expensive...

    What do you pay

    For the blood panel to check selenium and vitamin E levels?

    I'm reporting back after my clinic. It was a very full "immersion" type of experience. I went a day early and took a lesson with the barn's resident trainer, and then Saturday was the clinic with...

    It seems like everyone who has answered is taking lessons with "upper level" (by my standards anyway!) riders.

    I haven't been shocked really by the costs. Maybe surprised at how inexpensive...

    What are you paying for a 1 hour private lesson?

    If you don't mind, would you also post your general area and the highest level that your instructor has ridden/shown? Thanks!

    Do you have any passiers available there? I really do still think that they will be a solution for you. I own a similar horse. The passier tree has very short points. You can find one narrow...

    Does anyone have this saddle?

    http://www.classicsaddlery.com/closeouts/consignments.htm - the first one (synthetic dressage)

    I'd love to hear firsthand from anyone who owns one. Thanks!

    purplnurpl, he is trained with a spur stop. It has been frustrating for both of us that what means go in my language means stop in his, but we're getting there.

    It can take a while for the choke to resolve, which as others have said, is why they often have another episode (or really a continuing episode) after the initial choke. Maybe ask your vet if it...
