    Yep, I also have a 5 year old making up new evasions. I think he's bored with winter, and stiff from the snow and ice on the ground, and trying to come up with ways to keep himself entertained.

    At this point, I really have to laugh. No one can point me to the thread they're talking about, and I have no idea what you are talking about. Even if I were to know, again, how is it relevant?

    Yes, I can use other horses for my other students at this point, and will, especially if this horse will be doing nothing.

    Thank you! The girl does think I have magical powers, when all it is really is just good horse sense. I don't try to persuade her otherwise. :)

    Yes, except at this point, they don't want me on the horse between lessons, which means she's not safe for me to use for my other 2 students, which was not the deal. I sent the mother everything,...

    I'm not sure I could stomach the next month of the status quo at this point, so I did send them rates, etc. If they can't do it, that's fine at...
