    Basically, that means paying and extra $140 NOT to get lessons. That isn't a good deal. It's $500 a month for the pleasure of 4 hacks!

    Lesson horse leases can work but this barn's program doesn't...

    As EventerAJ, says, most of those horses are being bred in regional markets where lesser quality horses can do OK. In NY, breeders awards are very generous but only apply if the horse earns money in...

    I rode a paper chase at Plantation last year and LOVED it. That place is beautiful and once I got over the nerves (it was my first ride outside the ring in 15 years and on a horse I'd ridden once...

    When I was able to wear contact lenses I used them. Now, wearing glassesI find them impossible and am relegated to getting most of my info from the TV monitors.

    Dynaformer was tough but many of his offspring were not. They can jump and were much sought after as 'chasers before Barbaro came along and made them commercial.

    I like his pedigree. His sire is by Dynaformer a solid jumping influence. Reformer Rally was a solid stakes placed grass horse. He's inbred to Nashua, a son of the very important stallion, Nasrullah....

    North America is missing the "pipeline" for young stock. Sure there are some "futurity" classes and halter at some of the big shows like Devon but 99% of the nice young horses out there are NOT...

    As I said, I'm not a breeder, so I will defer. Seems as though plenty of folks said "why so cheap" on this thread.

    I am not a breeder, but have a background in racing, bear with me.

    I tend to think that Euro breeders have an approach far closer to the "livestock" approach of commercial US TB breeders. They...

    Some vendors bring overstocks and items they've taken back from stores and sell them fairly cheap. I bought two sets of polos a couple of years ago for $15 because the bags were badly damaged and the...

    I think that California has county owned barns as well. I don't know of any where I am in NY.

    When I hear "private" I tend to think of either a place maintained by the owner for his or her use,...

    I'm not sure of we are comparing apples to apples. The OP, in order not to cross the line into advertising was intentionally blurry about the horse. I didn't get the impression that it was a horse...

    Should Hemi's HITS AZ Circuit Award be "Childrens" not Junior? Later in the ad it says he's doing 3'3 Performance and Jr stuff now.
    Either way, he looks like a nice horse for the price.

    I am not certain, but it is possible that the "C" nick included horses with the nicking pattern several generations back and while it has been effective, it is far more distant. A "Sire X" on "Family...

    Very sad day at Belmont

    Opening day had a somber tone because exercise rider Juan Vasquez was killed in a spill on the training track this morning.
    I didn't know Juan but many of my friends did. So very sad...

    OP states that horse has never jumped more than two jumps in a "course" and we have no idea the height of the jumps. When I hear "jumping around small courses" I think of a course of 6 or 8 fences...

    The price of getting a WB foal to sale is irrelevant. This may be a WB, but it is one that stood idle for 4 years, missing the prime years of training and development. OP says he's a cute jumper, but...

    As jbonifas said, I'd prefer a mare either be a winner, preferably against other winners or at least have a good producing (or racing) sister or two.
