    you haven't lost your drive, you've lost your desire to ride/fight with this particular horse. So stop riding him. If he's unsafe and you can't afford a retirement for him or you don't think he...

    She's not changing what she wants...she's clarifying. the made part does narrow it all down...even so, I still think she should be able to find something.

    And where I come from, eliminating a...

    Yes...but OP wants made. I think she clarified that AFTER the first post, but she doesn't want, or possibly can't do the work to transform an eventer to a hunter. She also doesn't want a green...

    The truth of the matter is that someone that has the made, nice, sound, 2'6" packer with a record probably isn't going to need to go to the extra work of getting "new" video that the OP requires. ...

    There must be some disconnect with what the OP says she wants and what she is really looking for. $20k for a 2', 2'6" horse? That should be plenty. Most horses aren't really using themselves at...

    I tend to let people know I'm looking and see what comes out of the woodwork. Sometimes that means I find an ad, sometimes it means a friend or my trainer sends me an ad, etc.

    I usually go to...

    The seller in this scenario is stupid, plain and simple. As soon as the vetting is scheduled the horse is not tried...heck, some won't even ride them at all...and especially not jumped.

    Nope. I'm talking USA...and not Boston, SF, NYC. Central Coast CA.

    I guess the OPs post about housing prices in Canada vs. US made me snort. I, too, watch House Hunters and the like and think...

    The last pair of Ovations breeches I tried split in the thigh seam within a handful of rides (while being too big in the waist). I think I got about 3 rides before both thighs had split on the inner...

    you might think it's courteous, but I think it's a tactic and it puts me off. I immediately go on the defensive when a seller tells me that other people are interested, blah, blah, blah. Sell it...

    Sadly, I'm a bit jaded with the whole commission thing and find that my ability to trust someone with such a vested interest in a higher price tag has been very muddied. Thankfully, I don't ride...

    It's not just NYC, boston, etc. An outdated 3/2 condo in my very small rural CA town will run you about $450k plus $300/month in HOAs.

    Actually, yes it does matter what the substance is. Different body make ups will react to and absorb concussion differently. It isn't as simple as saying 1200 lbs is 1200 lbs.

    Disagree. Unless the horse is unsound due to an accident it most likely should not be bred. Breeding unsound horses leads to more unsound horses.

    Are they field boots with zippers? They will get wet inside if you stand in a bucket. No need for a hose.
