    Yes, I have. I didn't necessarily mean to, I just got caught in the pouring rain in London in some pretty new and uncomfortable ballet flats. I thought of the BT method and wore them until they...

    OP, I would start looking around for a private facility instead of a barn. You might be happier there. And sometimes private barn owners with farms and a couple extra stalls are happy to have an...

    Oh no. so sorry to see this. Jingles and prayers for Susan and David. How devastating.

    Have you asked her what you owe/are owed in writing? I would definitely do that, then arrange a time to pay/be paid in person. With cashier's checks/cash and written receipts so nothing bounces.

    When I was about 12 my best horse pal dared me to jump him at the 4H State Fair. So he laid down under a jump and my trusty pony and I, not able to turn down a bet, cantered right up and over.

    It's ok simply to disagree, or to put a season into the horse and evaluate then. She sounds like she would be a lot easier to sell with a record and maybe some more miles, anyway. And if she's not...

    My horse did this about a month ago, to the tune of a six-inch gash that broke a couple tiny pieces of his skull off. It was epic. I think another horse kicked him in the forehead. He can be...

    I think you should just talk to your BO again. As a BO, I have always been totally fine with conditional notices on sales and leases. But it sounds from your conversation like this BO wants a true...

    Just let it go and keep your focus on what you are doing. This person will create her own problems without you needing to say a darn word.

    I do my best to let the waves of drama wash past me...

    Don't think so based on the ad. It doesn't mention the Arab blood. If they were going for that market you'd think they'd at least tag it as one. I think they are selling it as a "WB cross"...

    French fry, my original post wasn't specifically addressed at you but I think this is a prime example of a horse just like I was talking about, that no one would think was part Arab unless they were...

    Impossible to say without seeing the horse. Often those part-Arab types are a lot more common in the A show would than people think. A LOT more ponies are part Arab than anyone lets on. The old...

    Why is the horse stopping? I would not keep trying if one of mine kept stopping consistently after three years, but I would also be sure it wasn't rider or pain related first before I threw in the...

    Well, I can only say that it depends a lot on what your goals are. Back in the day, I sort of wish I had taken my trainer's advice and sold a couple of very nice horses that I just didn't ride that...

    You'd think that when they run them until they are 11 and win 180,000k they'd earn a retirement out of that. It's a darn shame that this poor fellow is being asked to do more than stuff his face...

    I am quite tall (5'10) and I find riding ponies to be much easier too. because it is so much easier to see a distance on them, for some reason. Ponies are like little rubber bands, so adjustable. ...

    Loaner helmets are fine, IMO. As an instructor, make it part of your routine to check girths, stirrups, bridles and helmets before you start to teach every time, every ride, for everybody. Make it...

    Isn't there a fair amount of biotech in Reston area? that would be a much better commute if your DH is in Alexandria. Then you could go with one of the many nice NOVA barns.
