    But, it sounds like the latest figure that was given is reasonable and the initial fee was probably a tad high but not really THAT high.

    Last A show was almost 3 years ago. Horse has never been to what you are calling "big shows." He may or may not pin at the biggest "local" AA shows. Would probably pin at the smaller A shows and...

    Second the "do you mean fibrotic myopathy?" If so, should have little or no effect on life expectancy, unless I suppose it is very severe.

    My 3rd level mare had it when I bought her. She walks...

    Good luck resolving any ownership dispute without a Bill of Sale. I have always provided one when I sell a horse and received one on the few occasions I have purchased a horse. (Of the 4 horses I...

    Not my horse. This is a horse I am considering trying and want a reality check as to my feelings about the lease fee.

    Reasonable lease fee?

    I know 1/3 of the horse's value is the starting point. But, wondering what a resonable annual lease fee would be in your area...

    So, how many usable 2'6"-3' years would you expect a coming 14-yr-old to have? According to the selling trainer, horse has never had any maintenance. I don't think it has been heavily campaigned.

    No, trainer is NOT a warmblood snob. I was leasing a TB that everyone loved and trainer actually shows a client's TB and loves that horse also. Trainer just thought the price was too high,...

    Interesting. Horse was priced at $20K and my trainer thought is was quite over-priced since it is not a warmblood. I didn't think the price was that out of line considering it has a show record at...

    16.2hh and bay (very little white.)
    Not east coast, Florida and west coast.
    (Trying not to be TOO specific because don't want this deleted.)
  12. What is a fair price range for this horse?

    13 but no maintenance required.
    Non-warmblood (but not a "weird" breed)
    Very uncomplicated to ride with auto changes
    Shown thru 3' and can still do 3'
    Has shown both local circuit and A/AA shows...
  13. Do you go visit your horse when they are at the vet clinic?

    I usually do not if they are just going to be there 1 or 2 nights. I find it is more upsetting to them to see me and then get left there then if I don't visit at all.

    But, my horse is going to be...

    What to do when your vet screws up?

    My horse had a stifle fenestration done and I was told it was a very simple, straightforward procedure with extremely low risk. I was not told of ANY specific risk. I did not make this decision...

    2 very interesting perspectives. My horse has an easy change and a hard change. Same thing as Tour Guide - I quit schooling the hard way because it just created anxiety for both of us. We did 5...

    Lead change issues - any hope?

    Horse has show experience up to 3'. Is quiet with no spook and no stop. Really ammy friendly. But, the lead changes are unreliable. Horse does them fairly quietly over a pole. Without the pole,...
  19. Considering All Offers - what does this mean to you?

    Say you have your eye on a horse that is priced in the $20-30K range and said horse has been sale for a while. You are now told that seller is "motivated" and "considering all offers."

    What...

    Yes, if one of the horses I tried were the perfect horse for me, I could afford to buy the horse before I sold mine. I have sold 2 horses I bred and raised this year so am aware of the PITA it is to...

    I can do a FEW (2-3) A shows per year, which is the plan. But no way I can afford a full blown campaign with paying someone to show horse.

    Thank you! She does surprisingly does move off the leg but she is not that supple. Lateral suppleness is not something the former trainer worked on (NOT a dressage trainer!) So, I will most...
