    Shipping from Argentina is crazy expensive and unfortunately no way around that. There are lots of other great places here that do boots as well. I'm quite partial to Waltons where I get all my...

    Thank you to those that mentioned us! And to the OP, if you do decide to shop in Argentina ;), we are hosting an auction on April 26th of 4 and 5 YOs who are already undersaddle and working over...

    I'm still trying to figure out how any of the places were accessible in an hour. Unless you are going in the middle of the day. Which brings up a point - OP, are you going to be riding on...

    I don't think anyone gets heath insurance. Hell, a lot of professionals in the horse industry don't have health insurance, much less providing for barn employees.

    As for the rest, seems much more...

    It constantly amazes me how worked up people in the US get about breastfeeding. Pretty much everywhere else in the world, it's NBD. In fact, there are public campaigns here encouraging women to BF...

    I found him really patient with riders who were making an effort. He doesn't suffer fools lightly and if you aren't giving 100% or aren't listening, he can get annoyed (rightly so in my opinion). If...

    It is a test of skill as someone said. During the traditional festivals, it's one of the tests. The alpha mare has a bell around her neck.

    Ugly moments happen. Anyone who scoffs or snarks at someone for a miss or some random event is an idiot. There but for the grace of god go I/you/all of us.

    You have your students helping around the barn but that's not a WS position in my opinion.

    You need to decide if you just want help around the barn in exchange for lessons. which is fine but...

    There are plenty of great things about here but I do advise you to do your homework. Have you been here before? Inflation is about 30% a year so it's not cheap although right now there is the...

    I would simply advise any potential buyer to talk directly to a seller if someone asked me. Saying "I won't discuss the horse" sounds bad as you said. But as many people have pointed out, it's not...

    Here's an honest question - is there a time limit? If the injury occurred 1 year ago, 5 years ago, more? Is every single thing supposed to be disclosed? Only serious injuries? Do you tell a...

    The stallion was sold BEFORE he was seized. Hence the root of all these issues. He was waiting on a shipper to be sent and then MHS seized him where he was held for over a month without any...

    I think Kenike the question is has anyone seen the horses (in person or via photo) or have any updates on them and what they are being treated for? I haven't seen any press releases besides saying...

    Except as was pointed out, the SO will wind up on the hook most probably for treatment of RS. So 10K on treating 2 mares? Who didn't colic. That is more interesting than the HS releasing their...
