    Great trailers. I miss mine a lot--hauled very well, very light weight, easy maintenance. I only had it about 3 years before selling it (had lost both my horses and had no plans to buy again soon),...

    Some of us just hate all organized holidays, more or less equally, but Christmas feels worse because we have just barely survived Halloween and Thanksgiving and know in a week we will have to weather...

    Show name: Code Freeze
    Barn name: Fin

    His registered name is something else, but it has very negative connotations for me personally. Fin is verrrrrry loosely related to it, without the personal...

    I'd normally be the last person to keep in touch with a near stranger, but my horse's previous owner fell into the "seems like good people" category from the first conversation. So we're FB friends,...

    Yes but... who cares? Unless you're going to worry about every railbirdy-type opinion someone has, this isn't something to be even a little bit paranoid about.

    The majority of people clearly put...

    I'm overly sensitive about it, so it would bother me... if I were leasing out my horse and someone did that to him.

    To someone else's horse? It would irritate me, but so do other things people do,...

    What horse people feel about tradition and know about the level of athleticism required to get to that level will probably not, in the end, matter half as much as what the general public believes to...

    I had some bad experiences with a Cremello as a kid and have never been able to get that out of my mind when I look at any double dilute (or horses with a lot of white on the face and a blue eye).

    Nobody thinks it would end well.

    But if that's what the law says to do, what, exactly, do you think the OP should do differently?

    Keep the horse on the property forever? She won't be the legal...

    I ordered some on the first go-around I have to say their customer service was *excellent*. There was an issue with my order that they couldn't have known about, and they went above and beyond to...

    Mine was. He has a full sibling who does (or did) well at it, too. But Fin doesn't have the gaits for it.

    There are enough ads out there of Arab/DHH crosses aimed at Dressage that, even if they...

    They are (or were, for a while--I'm not up on current trends) a popular cross with Arabians, so you may be able to find some video searching for half-Arab crosses as well.

    I have a gelding who is...

    I'd go with a whisky or beer name -- it'll tie in to Cooper, him being part draft, and--especially whiskys--his color.

    I had a Passier GG that fit my Arab/QH cross mare great. The older models are all over the used market, generally well under $1K.

    If you have time to do the research, re-check some of the cheaper...

    There are lots of good, cheap horses in this area. Searches have to get prioritized somehow, and potentially good horses will be overlooked no matter what--it's just not possible to go out and look...

    Based on the people I know who would put up those sorts of pictures in their ads, the only thing they make me assume is that the horses are drugged and/or exhausted to the point of no resistance.

    Given your use of yard, I'm guessing you are in Europe or Australia/New Zealand, but still--see if you can find a working farm/ranch and go out and help with cattle work (to whatever extent...

    I know someone who has a barn and is a full time student (so not as rigid as a 9-5, but still a big commitment outside the barn). Based on what I saw with her experience, you are looking at:

    It's about the length of the back, size of the hip, etc, more than the height.

    My Arab cross was 14.3-ish and fit very nicely in a 66. She was very short backed--it was a serious consideration...

    Buyer paid via PayPal and I shipped to them. They could return within one week of receipt, but then they were responsible for shipping both ways. In this case, they...

    Fin is an Arab/Saddlebred/DHH cross. I wasn't even looking for a horse when I saw his ad last year, but he was too good to pass up.

    He was an unstarted 3.5 year old when I got him, so we've just...
