    I started riding hunters/jumpers/equitation in the early 70s (gasp) shortly after the dinosaurs disappeared. Made the switch to dressage two years ago and absolutely fell in love with it.

    Chemo drugs are indeed very expensive. I speak as someone who had to pay the co-pays associated with that type of treatment, and it was very expensive even with excellent commercial insurance.

    This kind of cheating - and the general attitude of "our" governing bod(ies) that rely on their members to do the majority of the policing - has created problems for quite a while. I am very...

    I think the OP may be coming from the eventing world, where working with several different coaches is pretty common.

    OP, you are correct that in dressage land, this approach is pretty unusual, and...
  8. Recommendations for retirement boarding in GA?

    I unexpectedly find myself in need of a retirement farm ... ideally in or near the Alpharetta GA area. Long story but the horse in question is something of a hot house flower, so a perfect set up...

    Just as an aside, I transitioned my older horse to dressage (from hunters and equitation) two years ago. He is the perfect hunter type (meaning he has the sweeping flat kneed trot and very quiet...

    Chastain is likely going to be $$$ as well, given the location. And I would think it is a very hard place to keep a horse, given the lack of turnout.

    Perhaps Vogt would be an option if you want...

    As you already know, it is an expensive area. N. Stamford is among the more affordable areas for rentals, IMO. But the commute to barns in N/S Salem will potentially be an issue, and they will be...

    My perhaps not-so-PC answer is that it depends on what your alternatives are.
