  1. Retirement Facilities in Nor/Cen California

    I have a fabulous older horse who I am looking to retire this year. He is an excellent baby sitter, charming, a delight on the ground, and most importantly, a treasured family member.

    I am...

    I agree whole heartedly with both of these points. In particular--and I'm going to rock the boat here--we should start our horses in their 3 year old year in more consistent and mentally if not as...

    We do this. And all manner of insanity in the winter months.

    We jump huge grids with no reins, eggs, no stirrups, blindfolded (seriously), in a relay situation.

    Or, we high jump on bad...

    I've watched the ownership threads with something approaching horror and fascination--but with an odd sympathy for all parties involved. The training and care of a horse at the ULs is a complicated...

    I found this suggestions really interesting for the following reason: Everyone has suggested 2 things about Riverman on this thread, the first, that he throws an exceptionally *athletic* type, and...

    I wouldn't really consider it a red flag. I know at least 2 *** horses who have had colic surgery and it didn't effect them one bit. I, personally, bought my aging I/A horse after he had had colic...

    I have to say, I am surprised by some of the lower estimates on here. I think RAyers is right. Around 10k, provided the horse really is nice on the flat, quiet, and uncomplicated. If she is not a...

    Right, I've heard this about Riverman (and so many more things, too!), but I also have heard that R-Star came out of a very sedate, ammy dressage import, and that while she was mischievous as a baby,...

    I think, after watching, that the overall quality of riding is fairly high here.

    Frankie, Martha, and Jennie all look great. Tamie rode tough, and Corner Street took to it quite well, whereas Ali...

    Hey! I have a Riverman baby! And he is as sweet as can be... And he's fancy... And brave... And, yeah, sometimes he bites... And, ok, so he bucks... But have I mentioned he's dappled?? And...

    I KNOW! But I just lost it when I read that article, I am never rude on this forum (or, I try to word my annoyed point very carefully). But I don't think I can listen to one more complaint from an...

    Oy. Caveat: I did not read all the replies on this thread.

    But... I'm highly aggravated, and upset this infantile article.

    Buck's writing. Terrible. In the second paragraph:

    There was a very long and productive discussion about eventing sires (as JER knows) on the sport horse breeding board. Perhaps you could read through that if you're interested in hearing more about...

    Through advanced. Currently one intermed one novice, one rehabbing back to prelim. Have owned one at the * level for another and one at the *** level.

    But, for the record, levels are often a...

    Yes. Indie.

    I think (but i'll deny it if anyone asks! lol) that kelli has some connections through the honorable Carl Bouc. in Europe that provide some good pipelines of horses. Of course,...

    Yes. He came from Kelli Temple. She bought him the year she won NAYRC on Cooper, and Kelli had imported him and was competing him at Prelim (he was fairly expensive, IIRC).

    Then, I know she...

    Gah! I did say it was "cringe worthy" did I not? :lol:

    Ok, but in all seriousness, this is a FORUM. We should have reasonable expectations of politeness, but it is fair to disagree with others...

    I know a horse that ran around fair hill twice, proceeded to take a YR to the *** at which he competed for 4 years, and she now does the GP jumpers on him. Soundness is so NOT an issue.

    Oh. And...

    JER. Ouch. That response to Ashley was a little cringe worthy. Not that I disagree, but that I don't think everyone has done the research and has the same breadth of knowledge others have earned over...

    I agree. That sounds like a great cross, it's hard to think you could add to copycat chloe's jump. I've always enjoyed watching her at shows. Sent u a pm.

    Any word on that front vineyridge? I can't imagine he really is by the trak version, but I can imagine the trakehner verband taking credit for it! Lol :D

    This is the question I raised in different terms on a thread about the YEH. I believe that we will see a dramatic shift in a decade to a new more "sporthorse" type. A scopier jumper, a flashier...

    HAHAHA. OK, that is a funny image.

    I wouldn't personally breed to Abdullah (even if Piggy French's Jakata *does* end up being by him). I've been looking seriously at the Galten Farms stallions...
