    Good luck, OP. The second-guessing is very hard. I suppose that when I make this same decision, probably in a few months, I try to tell myself that we all do the best we can given the information...

    As a boarder who knows how hard it is to find a good barn, I hope you keep your boarders and that they become good riding buddies, good backups for when you're away, etc.

    My only advice: keep the...

    From the anthropomorphic camp, I say that he feels that he did not get enough of a trail ride, did not like having to go out with the other horses, and feels that a real ride is just the two of you,...

    I hate the term "twilight years."

    I don't expect to be doing horsie marathons when I'm in my eighties, but I would like to be able to be helped into the saddle to go for a pleasant trail ride,...

    Well, just to state the obvious (because it's COTH), could she have ulcers from the move? Lyme? Does she not like the food or not get along with her turnout buddies? Could it be something else,...

    You are hoarding an underused Brenderup???? :-) Sell it to someone who is craving of and worthy of its wonderfulness! :-)

    OP, move on. :yes:Next time, you could phrase it as, "I am going to school at x; my trailer is full, but if you can find another ride, we'd love to meet you there." Or, "I am going to school at x...

    I have only heard good things about ASC saddles, but agree that many people are not familiar with them in terms of resale value (all the better to keep your saddle and simply get an additional horse...

    I did it the easy way. I figured if my horse's 10-yo former owner could ride the horse w/t/c/j plus trails, I (a 45-yo re-rider at the time) could too. Horse cost less than her saddle did, but is...

    Leasing is a great idea. Just make sure there is a contract that spells out:

    -- how often you're allowed to ride and what kind of riding;
    -- if it's a half-lease what days are "yours" and what...

    My mare, who is perfect, looks disdainfully down her pretty Arab nose at the idea that I will ever be any better of a rider. However, it appears that I am acceptable for things like grooming, ...

    I am for Barn C

    I say either Barn A or Barn C. Barn B only has one hour of turnout, which I would worry would create a stiff, grouchy, bored horse. That stall/paddock is not big enough to be a turnout substitute...

    Yep, I have one. Top teeth are nubs, after a lifetime of cribbing (which she is now giving up, because she can't get a grip with her top teeth anymore. Go figure.) No issues; at 25, she seems to...

    In addition, his feet appear very unconventional. I see quite a bit of degradation in his hoof wall, such that his feet are clawlike.
