    Wow, I don't know how I'd feel about that as the buyer with an accepted offer. Seller still letting potential back-up buyers do a cross country school on the horse? I think I'd be staying away from...

    We have three in our barn (though it is a dressage barn). Two are heavier types - decent minds but a bit more slug like. One perchX, one shireX. Depending on where you live I would worry about the...

    From someone who just lived through the coldest February on record in Michigan - you're insane. I went through $800 for heat in 2 months. That was keeping my house at 60 degrees. And that doesn't...

    There's a huge difference between a 20 minute, $2 plug at your mechanic and opening your company up to potentially thousands of dollars worth of vet bills. Seems to me CEO just potentially opened...

    I use BoT products, but not the quick wraps, so I haven't ever looked at them to see how they are constructed.

    When I looked at the pictures, the first thought I had was that it looked like...

    I thought about doing this - but the cheapest supplement that falls under this program is still over $40 a month, and it must be purchased in smartpak form - bucket ordering does not meet the...

    I will echo this. I am now a dressage rider. Rode eventers for years as a teenager/young adult. Once you get really hurt a time or two, you'll often lose some of your nerve. At 16, you're...

    I think part of the point to the rule, at rated shows anyway, is that dressage is supposed to be about the progressive training of the horse. As you said - it is about the feedback, not about the...

    Patently not true. I live in a relatively competitive region. Particularly in the AA divisions, a correctly trained, accurately ridden test will get you good ribbons and placings, up to and...

    I had a old Courbette - with foam. I really liked the saddle - but it was hard as a rock by 5 years in. It would have been a great lesson saddle, forgiving to a bunch of different types of riders,...

    Ditto. In fact, I'll raise you euros to croissants that they don't get repairs done - they just trade 'em in for a new one.

    Oh, no - I totally understand that HC scores wouldn't count. My point, obviously poorly explained, was that I would be willing to pay & ride it - and do so HC so as to not be taking my PSG horse in...

    I get that mechanic BF knows what the weight limitations are - but one thing he is not considering is that horses are a "live" load. You don't strap them down and they never move an ounce until you...

    One year I spent 6 hours on a Friday evening booking a Mexico trip and was on the plane at 7AM the next morning.

    I tend to agree with those that say that no wraps/boots offer support. That said, my horse wears the Equilibrium boots on all four legs. I put them on to avoid a occasional rub or bump that might...

    I would also add to those who are being cautious - if you do decide to do something personal - make sure it is early in the day - as RHRT said, it could get very emotional and you want to give your...

    I wish I had insisted on my husband living on his own before we got married. In our case it was not about money, but about living like a grown-up. Laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc. All the stuff...
