    Just ask what he is priced at, but do it BEFORE gushing about how perfect he is for you or what you're willing to spend if you get what I'm saying.

    I have a bunch of pics of him from when he was with us (owned Mary Daily and Ashleigh P ). Will see how they come out after scanning. I never jumped him but he sure was fun to hack around when I was...

    I don't think Mario could feel in that quick second exactly how scary the horse looked. Cant blame him for that. If you're laying on the neck trying not to fall yourself, you probably can't figure...

    Yeah I wouldn't go with side reins yet. You want them to learn long and low first. Ita easier for them to evade contact and be on the muscle if they're curled up. Ottb's just take time. If you've got...

    It's been about 8 or 9 years since I've had a horse on full service on Long Island. Guess prices have gone up. We paid a hair over half that rate, but lessons were not included.
