    10k, plus or minus? The main factor would be how easy she is. If she is a seeing eye dog with auto lead changes, $15k-20k would be more what I would think - but only if she has proven this at...

    Jump without your stirrups or with only your left stirrup. I try to make myself have the brim of my helmet in the top periphery of my vision. Also jumping without reins with your arms out to the...

    I don't think many are, no. I will say when I was at Beval down there a few weeks ago, there was a mom trying on a complete riding outfit because she "might write her daughters horse for the first...

    Totally agree - she is cute and there isn't anything about her that screams "arab," but without a show record and/or being insanely user friendly, a lower level jumper just isn't worth that much. I...

    It's a broad generalization, but I feel like people who exaggerate the height of the jumps also greatly over-estimate a horse's value. Off breed without a rated show record does not bring big bucks.

    I have several sun shirts from Sports Authority that I love (and one from SmartPak that I hate). They are super breathable and dry really quickly, which is great for both sweat and drying after a...

    How big is she? And what does "American Warmblood" mean in this case? I've heard it used to describe all sorts of unusual crosses. Does she have a lead change?

    Based on what we know, maybe $10k.

    Ah, I read it as her paying $1k for board and additional for everything else. If that includes lessons OP let me know where you are leaving so I can take your spot!

    $1200+ is the norm around Boston for full board with an indoor and no training or lessons included. South of the city is cheaper but also impossible to get to.

    Can I just say how immensely jealous I am?! I live in downtown Boston and am having a hard time finding a barn within 40 miles to meet my admittedly unusual wants/needs. After horse shopping...

    The seats that are further back/higher up give you a better view of the whole course than the seats in front. It's sort of like going to the movies - if you want a big group of seats together not in...

    You don't. You train them until they understand what you want. There is no reason an unstarted (ie, not recovering from poor training) horse can't WTC and go over small jumps in anything other than...

    Take another poster's suggestion and put some rubber band around the stirrup bar to see if that can't help put your lower leg out of the chair position. The Schockemohle is a really nice saddle and...

    Take her on some off-property excursions that are not a show situation to see how she handles new situations. You may have to pay a ring fee to use another barn's facilities, but it should be...

    My fitter recommended the County Innovation and Barnsby Schockemohle. Barnsby is likely going out of business/is already, so you can likely find deals on the saddle but can try it for free through...

    We did a 15 hour ish fast? Horse could have grain and a flake of hay at 4pm but nothing until the exam the next morning at 9. I figure he had something to nibble on until 6ish (slow, messy eater). ...

    A few horses in my barn wear the Schockemohle bonnet to deal with winter indoor creaking. It is enough to take the edge off and is wonderful for horses who don't like wearing earplugs. If you are...

    I don't think above the local level it will fly in the hunters. If having his mouth closed doesn't freak him out, you could try a crank noseband.

    I'm not sure how it fits different saddles, but the Success pads are nice (and non-slip!).
