    I don't have much to add, NotCreative, except agreement with all posters before me: Your leaser is behaving poorly.

    I was in a similar situation to your leaser years ago with a WONDERFUL horse;...

    Sounds like a pretty typical free lease agreement to me. I've leased horses out in a similar way (usually experienced horses to less-experienced riders ... this is how we create new addicts, you...

    As already stated, the problem with this particular product is that it does NOT "make our lives easier," as suggested in the OP, not in any way, shape or form. One of the keys to effective selling is...

    The idea is not to forgo all testing all the time. Looking at Pap smears, for instance: No gynecologist is going to suggest that women never get them;...

    Mine is 24' wide, about 46' long. It is a shedrow design so the stalls are 12x12 and there is a 12' overhang in front on a concrete pad. I use the front part for cross-tying/grooming and my wash area...

    Uh-oh. So when I dump my chubby mare's carefully planned and measured minuscule handful of feed, I shouldn't be saying, "OK, here ya go Miss Fatty-Fatty-Two-by-Four-Can't-Fit-Through-the-Barn-Door?"

    Each of my three horses has a carefully thought-out and designed feeding program to suit her specific needs. I throw their hay and dump their hard feed. I also slop them daily with a soaked beet...

    Very common and very easy. The instructors should carry their own professional liability insurance; they simply inform their carrier that they need a certificate for XX farm (there is usually a small...

    Even for a trade, you should have a BoS that provides a value for the respective horses. If not, can you retroactively write one up with the owner of the horse you traded?

    Alternatively, you might...

    There are a lot of horses out there that fall into the "servicably sound" category. My 26yo mare has mild ringbone and past serious tendon injury to a hind leg. Her stride is abnormal. She looks...

    Two other factors: (1) We often have to deal with special snowflake owners who want to train Poopsie with luuuvvvv and use only paaawwwssiitive training. So we aren't really free to deliver the...

    Welcome! Hope you enjoy the Aiken area. It's a great one for horsey stuff, lots of barns, shows, etc.; I have several clients in and around that area.

    [Raising hand.] I have had my own place for 7 years now, but I do recall one place I boarded that I thought was relatively drama-free. It turns out, the BO was having all sorts of drama over me!...

    This could be the problem. Not everyone "always wants to talk it out." I'm a great example. If there is a direct, immediate conflict that requires a resolution for something to get done? I'm calm,...

    Why is it sad? What is sad about buyers being self-aware enough to NOT put themselves or a young horse into a situation that they are not confident will turn out well? That is a good thing. You and...

    And that may actually be an answer: There is a fairly large contingency that cannot be swayed, and they have solid, well-thought-out reasons for this.

    I have to disagree. Neither "courtesy" nor "transparency" were lacking in this case. Because it is the well-known standard practice that a horse (or other item) for sale will be marketed continually,...

    Erm ... no, they're not. Not in some areas. Not in MY area. And i'm not in Texas.

    Haven't seen the movie, so can't comment on that.

    Yes. They are not ideal, but sometimes it's just too damn cold and I don't want to take off my warm and comfy boots to put on my actual schooling boots.

    I am not a frequent buyer/seller, but I have bought and sold a few. Here are my thoughts on your question from the occasional seller's perspective:



    I'll answer the second question first. No,...
