    Or the money for an in-depth, all points covered, super-deep veterinary diagnostic routine just isn't there. Depending on how elusive the problem, that could easily be well over $1000. So small...

    Make Xander happy. With a new job that he likes. :)

    I'm with the others who feel that if Xander was going to step up to eventing, he would have by now. You don't sound like someone who hasn't got...

    Why are people debating what the trainer said? What difference does the trainer make now? The question is not the trainer's character or communications skills.

    Ok this is sarcastic and snarky but towards your ex,OP, not you.

    Offer to give your horse to your ex in the settlement. I would bet all further discussion of the horse stops right there.

    Or...

    Why do these discussions about the major issues of eventing always end up with people gnawing the various ends of the phase order rope?

    a) I like the traditional order much better.

    b) Someone...

    I have a young relative who is completely horse-crazy, but does not want to ride. She wants to care for the horses, be with them, commune with them, do ANYTHING to make their lives a little better...

    But it doesn't count unless you tell us who that nephew is. ;)

    Then while watching the live feed we can say "Look! That's the nephew of somebody on COTH!" to the bemusement of friends and kin....

    Fingers crossed the American entries are still in the mail ... cuz you know, the snowstorms on the east coast, and then that 3 week ship crossing of the Atlantic ... ;)

    I'm surprised the Americans...

    You'll get better responses than this one from me - I'm not really an expert on young horses.

    My horse was 8-9 years old when I first met him and he would do something like this almost every day....

    Every first-timer. I cannot imagine the guts it takes to face Rolex KY the first time. (Or any time for that matter.)

    I'm actually keeping fingers crossed that several of the BNR's from Europe...

    Whatever her reason, no point in jumping to conclusions because they could be wrong.

    It's more important to respect her signals and give her some space. Don't take lessons at that barn...

    You definitely did the right thing. And I believe she appreciates you for having the courage to make that decision, for her. :yes:

    Think of her happy and with all body parts intact and well,...

    Can you keep her? With or without riding? With or without other people riding her?

    Also consider leasing near home, and always be prepared to reclaim her if you don't like the situation, or she's...

    I agree with this, completely. It IS the business model of some small but highly influential professional riders, people who do this commercially by selling riding and selling coaching/instruction at...

    The only thing I can think of is to know she will be loved and appreciated in her next home - and make sure that is the kind of home she'll have. :)

    Depends on the age of the horses. I would get competitive quotes, but it sounds in the ballpark. When my horse was younger, I had coverage in that ballpark for something like $350-$450 per year for...

    It's basically a package of supplement + colic surgery insurance. If you want insurance ONLY for colic SURGERY, IMO it's a reasonably good deal.

    But if you want broader medical insurance, and I...

    Horse insurance has been going through an evolution in the past several years.

    100% it is worth it. These are HORSES, remember. :winkgrin: When things go wrong, they can go VERY wrong, and it is...

    I wish eventing would face up to itself and realize that the old sport is worth preserving ... in its own environment.

    The new and the old need to separate and continue on, as friends. IMO

    I wonder if the higher level is changing in new directions more than the lower levels. By higher, I don't just mean UL's, I mean the 4* riders and the pipeline of serious team candidates. That's a...

    There is a place for the Wellington-style course. I just wouldn't call it "eventing".

    I see Wellington as a perfectly viable horse sport ... separate from eventing. :) No reason riders who want to...
