    Everyone has offered you wonderful advice.

    Don't discount the lesser known barns. Hit up the smaller h/j places and the local boarding stables. Owning a *nice* horse does NOT require one to keep...

    Yes, theoretically. But there are those who are quick to blame someone else when an accident occurs, even if it is his/her own fault. And if one is on the wrong end of that lawsuit, well, the "So How...

    Frankly, it really comes down to a safety issue (as JB said). Horses as a general rule are not 100% reliable, so might as well hedge one's bets. Horses that are blindly accepting of new situations or...

    Agree with much of what has already been said. Currently ride (or well, not ride as the case may be as horse and trainer are in one state and I am far away) with a trainer who is very 'old school.'...

    It sounds like he may need a bit more show exposure, most likely he'll calm down a bit with more experience. But he also needs to listen to YOU,...

    Ditto what yellowbritches said.

    When I had time to ride 5-6 days/week a trainer hopped on specifically to fix something or as an intense training session.

    Now, I am home only rarely, so I...

    Have you made a list of positives/negatives?

    Don't try to push yourself to the breaking point. Sometimes concessions have to be made (leasing or taking time off from horses).

    Not sure how much help I am, but:

    Currently in law school (in NY), so not exactly gainfully employed. Have 1 horse in partial-training, boarded near my parents.

    I've only sent one out for starting. He was born an old man, but we still exposed him to as much as possible before he was even weaned: poles, tarps, towels on his back, etc. Didn't want to worry...

    Another vote for Beval.

    Exchanged a NWT bridle I'd had for over a year, at no cost. :D

    Because according to my horse, who just so happens to think like Ted, there is no such thing as too many treats. :lol:
