    I think that the comment about him being able to be trail horse was more suggesting he was sane. I was talking to a jockey, not the event trainer.

    Actually, the 2* rider isn't selling him. She just has him listed for a trainer she knows, and she did say that she wish she had room to take him because he's her type. I'm getting him vetted on...

    No, I don't have a conformation shot right now, but he has solid legs and an uphill build. I'm looking for a horse for at least Young Riders 2**, but as far as we can go.

    Riding Twice a Day?

    What are your thoughts on riding twice a day? For example, 45 minutes of conditioning in the morning and 45 min of dressage in the afternoon.

    Boarding at a Hunter/Jumper Barn

    Hello,

    I'm looking for a new boarding barn for a future horse, but my area is so densely populated with hunter/jumpers that it may be easier to find one with my criteria that isn't eventing. The...
