At least you are not disparaging other riders and calling them stupid.
The helmet Nazi's have spoken.
Unless the student was a Junior, no they cannot barter for lessons on schooling horses. If the student is riding their own horse there is no problem with barter.
Of course since Amateur status...
Yes you would be considered a pro. Pro status has nothing to do with ability, only remuneration.
Buying a lesson is not a problem. Having somebody else buy a lesson for you is a problem. As it should be for an Amateur.
The animal rights people have ensured that it is not possible to use horse meat in dog food anymore.
Do you eat meat of any kind? If so, why is it only the processing of horses that prevents...
If it is a lesson it is of benefit to me. Why else would I need the trainer to be there? If they need to give me a suggestion then obviously I learned something, which is the benefit.

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...

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?
So by bullying the people who were bullied by somebody else is setting a good example? People are not attacking the trainers, they are attacking the victim of the bullies. This is a good example of...
