    True, technically. And whether or not the guy rode these horses earlier or closer to the competition, I consider that a real advantage. More generally, the WS who spends more time in the saddle...

    I have been at barns that did have genuinely communal linens/equipment and also client-owned stuff.

    Always it has worked like this: Cheap things like saddle pads and cottons/standing wraps/turn...

    And this case-- where the guy states that having had the chance to ride the competitors' horses as a result of his working student-hood-- is an instance in which you would want to call the WS a...

    Yes, but imagine the inventory you'll need and the accounts you'll need with all those manufacturers in order to have a trailer full of saddles to show your clients. The thing that is killing...

    If you are grateful that the BO is taking care of things and want to spend lots of money for a spa day, why are you "put out" about your horse being outside? Consider the alternative…. just so that...

    OP, I think you need to ask yourself how you'll get paid. Do you think you can make a living from fitting alone? Or will you need to sell saddles, too, to make ends meet?

    I can tell you that I...

    It already hurts the horse? In that case, I'd consider him unsound until it was removed.

    I also looked at a horse whose price was lowered because he failed a PPE due to a discovered bone chip in...

    OP, you said you'd feed the horse for the rest of its life, right?

    In that case, get one that's as old as possible and can still do the job. You get the same benefits whether the horse is truly...

    You all have been so helpful. Thanks!

    So to be clear:

    Even more offensive: Dad has his two boys out to lunch at a diner or similar when they blow bubbles in chocolate milk. Hence, it's the waitress' problem, not theirs. And the commercial is for...

    Different TO is acceptable British-english. Don't make it right over here, though.

    And the creeping illiteracy that has people screwing up phrases/words that sound similar makes me sure the...
  13. Pricing barns/arenas/fencing…. and I don't even own the property yet.

    I just lost a little bidding war on a pretty place because I didn't have some information about it and couldn't get that (while the other buyers didn't seem to care, the whackos). That got me to...

    Didn't they recently sell the company to a drug manufacturer or distributor? How does that coincide with the declining customer service?

    I think the saddle is tipped forward in the picture. Note the underside of the panels near the cantle slant up rather than look horizontal. That makes it hard to see the true shape of the seat. If...

    I'll bet the barn can find your...

    I just went through something similar while trying to buy a horse. I voted for "before scheduling the PPE." It sounds late in the process, but let me tell you why I voted as I did.

    The update is more information. They did x-ray the opposite hock at the same time, when the horse was a yearling. It was clean. But man, there was a lot of shrapnel...

    Yabbut solving that problem takes some doing, you must admit. And then for many in this age group, you'd have to rollback the tape of time 25 or 50 years for a "do over."
