    IME, it depends on the mare and the geldings, and you likely won't know how things will unfold until you introduce the mare to the herd. That said, the best thing, IMO, is to introduce the mare to...

    Thanks, everyone!!!

    Of note, this wasn't a dressage show. It was an "open" show, and the people I dealt with were ex-hunter circuit people/AQHA circuit people. Long story here.

    Hi All,

    Crosspost here: In H/J land, what do you consider to be the difference between "coaching" at a show and "day care"? How much would you expect to pay for each at a recognized show versus...
  11. What does show "coaching" versus "day care" mean to you?

    Just curious ( I hope to crosspost this),

    What do you consider to be "coaching" at a show versus "day care"? How much do you expect to pay for each at a recognized show and a schooling show?

    The horse I described bucked two trainers off at the mounting block (bucking past mounting block). Not to get out of work, but because he couldn't handle being mounted at that time. He gave all of...
