    This study may have some validity, depending on the methodology.

    What is interesting to me about the results is that since they are based on opinion, it is not necessarily whether chestnuts...

    As a breeder myself, I fully want to support the breeders' "side" of this - it would be nice to see the breeders recognized and prevent the commercialization of renaming to suit sponsors/trainers.

    For those of you who have sold on payment plans, what does your contract stipulate in case of late payments?

    Does the buyer have a grace period? Do you charge interest? Is it assumed that beyond a...

    Forgive me if this has been discussed before.

    We recently received an email inquiring about one of our weanlings, asking if we would accept payment plans. We have not sold a horse on payments...

    I have a 2015 filly, so also too early to draw too many conclusions about her, but I absolutely adore her and would love to breed to Sir G again. My girl is out of a Hanoverian mare whose breeding is...

    It's possible to get quality mares (TBs and/or well bred Warmbloods) quite cheaply on breeding leases. If you want the experience of having a foal and are willing to endure the expense/time/potential...

    Are you looking for approved Trakehner stallions, or AHS stallions with Trakehner blood? Presumably you know that Harvard is not a Trakehner, he is a Hanoverian by the Trakehner stallion, Hohenstein.

    He definitely seems to have nice gaits for a TB; I think, though, as others have suggested, that you need to consider your market.

    He does not appear to have the jump to breed hunters for the...

    So weird, ASBJumper - we are quite close to you (thinking in terms of weather patterns) and our mares cycled like clockwork! Sorry to hear about your frustrations. :(

    Perhaps we are the exception? This has been a great breeding year so far for us (knock on wood).

    Appreciating all the feedback.

    I think the trouble is, I'm realizing that in this case, aside from ruling out every possible pain-related issue, we have pretty much covered all our bases.

    I bought a pair of custom dress boots from La Mundial about eight years ago. They are so stiff they prevent me from using my legs effectively; the ankle is completely rigid. It took me several years...

    Interesting suggestion of blinkers; I have never used these, I will look into this further.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback.

    Countrywood, this horse has had MONTHS of groundwork, including tons of sacking out. Like, more than any young horse I've ever encountered. More groundwork does...

    Spooking/bolting during dismount

    Not sure where to post this; there have been similar threads, but none I've found quite relevant enough to my own situation.

    I am starting a young horse for a friend. I have started a number of...

    Whether or not one is in favour of air vests, we should probably be careful about making statements like this. Clearly, in this case, the air vest did not CAUSE the injury since it didn't deploy and...

    Foal registration: RPSI or CWHBA?
