    Mark off an area (or find an arena) the size that you are considering and use it to ride. I've had everything from 90' x 120' (SOOOOO SMALL if you are jumping or riding with another person) to 150' x...

    I've had all sizes of arenas and trust me - build the biggest one you can. Maybe you can forgo fencing for a while? If you are going to do it, do it right. At a minimum you would want a 100x150 to...

    I'm not trying to nitpick, but YOUR horses are all brought along slowly and are ready and willing because they have been handled and exposed. Some of the horses that people bring to these clinics are...

    I think if you read McGurk's reply and add to it that it's very possible the horse in the photo hasn't been handled at all then it does makes sense. While YOU haven't needed to rope a horse in your...

    If price is an important factor that usually means said horse can't just 'not work out' for the buyer. That said, buying a young horse off a video from anywhere is a gamble at best. Unless you really...

    So I called today as I was curious...I called the two well-known horse transports and both quoted me the range of $7500 from Holland and $7000 from Germany for flight and quarantine delivered to NY.

    Talk to him. Tell him what you posted - that you love him and the horse does too, but you don't want to impose by asking him to travel. I would OFFER to pay a fuel surcharge if that's what it took to...

    I lived in NY when I imported him and he came out of quarantine in NY. I know the cost of import (flight and quarantine). Something doesn't add up with your sister's pricing, unless i'm missing...

    I think we will all be surprised if a video or photo appears of the horse jumping more than 1m with a rider or more than 1.2m free jumping...or I will anyway. The story has certainly been modified...

    Do you have a video of the horse free jumping? Video of him being ridden, etc? Is your trainer currently competing in Grand Prix? What's your background - someone who has ridden dressage for 18 years...

    Teach him to self load. There are instructional videos all over youtube if you are unfamiliar with the concept. If you are alone that's the only safe way to do it. Once loaded, butt bar, then...

    This doesn't sound as much like a trailering issue as a herd-bound issue. I would be really interested to see what happens when he's with a friend.

    Four Corners Saddlery is still there and really does have a good selection, but isn't really a destination. If you'll be in Montana (Kalispell/Whitefish - eat dinner in Whitefish) at the right time,...

    Since you do self-care and prep and show at a hight level, I would think many readers would be drawn to a detailed chronicle of that. An elaborate synopsis of your day with the showing itself as just...

    As everyone has said, it depends on so many variables and most have been discussed. We are on our fifth farm :eek: now and are building from scratch. I will reiterate everyone else's point that it...
