The instructor trained the owner and the owner trained the horse.
One hour a week is not enough to train a horse.
Good for you.
The fact that you feel superior because you wear a helmet has absolutely no effect on my feelings towards helmets.
Nobody is saying you should not wear a helmet if you want to.
We are saying that wearing a helmet does not make you a better person than someone who chooses not to wear a helmet. Please keep...
Then by all means wear a helmet.
A helmet does not fix anything. A helmet may help prevent an injury.
Yet it is okay for people to call people who do not choose to wear a helmet idiots or worse?
So somebody who pays into these programs should be able to restrict what somebody else does? If somebody thinks jumping is to dangerous they should be able to tell the "idiots" who jump that they...
Could happen very easily. The horse could have been stiff during the first jog, could have stepped on something, could have been sore. Easily could have worked out of the issue before the 2nd jog. ...
I know this may sound radical but have you actually spoken with the barn manager directly about your concerns?
If so, what was her response?
A lot depends on whether you expect the trailer and driver to remain all day or drop you off and pick you up. Either way is a multi hour commitment for the rig and driver, regardless of how close it...
After 6 pages about leg wraps.
Post #1 says there is a dutch door left open.
According to post #1 there is 1 dutch door left open.
The barn is not closed tight. There is some ventilation. Not sure what everybody's issue is.
Have you ever been involved in running a show? If not, what are you basing this on?

Mules do not belong in a lower class of show. They belong at mule shows. They are not horses or ponies.
When some kid loses to a rescue pony you tell them how there is no such thing as a bad...
Correct. They can make up their own rules. They decided to follow USEF rules and not allow mules. This is their show, their rules. A mule is not a horse and is not eligible to show at a horse...
There was not a confirmed rule. The person that said the mule could show made a mistake. That does not mean that mules were legal to show. Allowing an ineligible animal to show again only...
It is a horse show. That is the only reason needed to not allow mules. A mule is not a horse.
A mistake was made when the mule was allowed to enter. That does not mean that the mistake should...
A mule is not a horse. Why should a mule be allowed to compete at a horse show?
Or increase your fees to cover costs and make a living.
As has been stated many times. His barn, his rules. Crazy or not.
If the boarders do not like it they can move.
Cutting and reining are the top tier. For the best horses, over $100k would be expected. Good western pleasure horses would routinely sell for over $50k. These prices would be for proven horses. ...
We use a lot of dressage techniques with our wp horses. The big thing to remember is they have to be able to do everything with minimal to no contact.
When looking to buy the main thing I look at...
