    I am fully in support of microchips. My rescue dog and rescue cats are microchipped, why wouldn't I microchip my horse?

    Microchips cannot be removed. They remain with the horse for it's entire...

    I don't work with New Vocations and I'm not aiming this comment specifically at them, but I have seen well intentioned people and TB rehoming organizations more than once re home TBs with really...

    Send the horse back. I have both racehorses and show horses. There are many decently behaved OTTBs that have plenty of potential to go on and be nice riding horses in a variety of disciplines.

    I recently read a study that reported negative effects from vibration therapy in horses. I tried to do a quick internet search to find it but it didn't show up or I would link it.

    From a business perspective, I think it makes more sense to expand the lesson and training program and slowly build the roster of boarders slowly and selectively from that pool. Regular boarders who...

    4THEHORSES, I have a few more things for you to think about. Since you have not run a boarding facility previously, keep in mind that before you take possession of the farm and the boarders, you will...

    Look, if you want an experienced BO, board at a barn with an experienced BO. It's not that difficult to ask how long someone has been in business and what their qualifications are. If someone is a...

    Get new boots, but that may not solve the problem. Look for boots with relatively stiffer, thicker leather, don't look for thin, super soft ones. Then invest in some equifit gel bands and some rolls...

    Red Barn, I'm afraid I can't agree with you regarding your comments back and forth with S1969. While it's true that some BO's are less qualified than others, I do not think that a BO needs to set...

    I find that when the horses have been ridden and schooled off of the GGT footing and then suddenly are ridden on it that they tend to "stick" to the footing and trip a few times while they acclimate....

    No jeans!

    I'm not a fan of seat savers, but I don't see anything wrong with them other than the look. Still no jeans, even if you use a seat saver.

    Otherwise, keep your saddle clean and...

    I completely understand your POV, Red Barn. It's tough on both sides--I understand owners wanting autonomy but when something happens on my business premises it becomes my business, too. If someone...

    I could write a long essay on the subject because anyone who has been in the horse world any amount of time has seen many times over the issue of a mismatched horse and rider resulting in a rider...

    Well, I think in many respects my contract is close to Lady E's and I also have a waiting list for boarders. Frankly, I think many people like being at a facility where no drama is allowed and the...

    When you take your horse out to shows, in public, you've got to be prepared for your horse to come in contact with the public. But, like Lord Helpus, I don't think it is appropriate for the general...

    Depends on the saddle and depends on the horse. I too have noticed a trend of some people putting saddles further back to keep it off the shoulder--sometimes much further back than what I think is...

    I really feel for you and I think any BO would because we've all had difficult situations with clients on occasion and it is the worst when a horse is caught in the middle. I don't have any advice to...

    Keep in mind, also, that the experience of being near horses and listening to them eat and enjoying their simple presence is a completely novel sensation to a large part of the population. Many city...

    Love the Flecks. they make a nice show bat if that is what you are looking for, in addition to some more plain looking crops.

    I think you could definitely find a four year old prospect that has been decently started over some small jumps (but no serious training investment by the breeder) in your price range. The caveat is...

    Simple misunderstandings happen all the time. Clarify what you meant, apologize if you think you didn't communicate clearly, and move on.

    BUT, I completely agree with GGG that people without...

    You are under no obligation to trailer anyone and if I think it is a bit presumptuous for someone to assume that you would be trailering them unless that was clearly specified or was part of a...

    While I'm not an expert on all the different areas, I would say that many of these estimates (obviously with exceptions) are very much on the lower side. I don't live in a super expensive area, but...

    I think that in today's world, "medicalizing" a horse's issue is just a more palatable alternative than labeling a horse as crazy or bad. It might be a crazy or bad horse, but if medication like...

    If the barn staff are hourly employees, the money goes to the BO, no question. I don't see any problem with tipping the employees when you return and thanking them for the great care they take of...
