    As a former boarder, client, and now a BO, I think that once a relationship reaches the point where the BO actively dislikes a boarder, its time to give them notice.

    Regardless of who benefited...

    We are arguing about the terms that people use to efficiently or colorfully describe an emotional concept? Really?

    When people ask me why my 26 year old DD still lives at home, I tell them she...

    Rico (JC - Red Wrecker) came as the result of a friend referring me to a trainer at Philadelphia Park. I was there to see a CANTER PA horse. He was not listed anywhere for sale, it was just on the...

    I will give you a different perspective.

    There is a point, usually between the advanced beginner - intermediate, where a rider can become competent under normal conditions, but still not have the...

    I would definitely encourage her to go if she is safe to w/t in a show environment. Prepare her ahead of time that 6's for the movements mean she is on the right track, and that the test is a...

    I boarded for the winter at a wonderful place 10 minutes from home. I liked having the indoor with nice footing and the people.

    Otherwise, I was miserable. Most of all, I hated dealing with barn...

    I hate reeling/unreeling the hose to fill water buckets, because I have to sweep first so that my hose doesn't get icky when I'm reeling it back in. And yes, I'm aware that I have OCD issue. :)

    IMHO, Laura Graves had a lovely ride, and hopefully she and Verdades have a long career! I think as she gains more experience she'll be pushing for that extra bit of 'brilliance' that will give all...

    GFG - I'm sorry. I wholeheartedly agree that in some cases, it's the best decision to cut off interaction with a toxic family. I was physically abused by both my brother and stepfather for the...

    Family dynamics can be very strange. I have a very close knit family for the simple fact that its a value passed down from every generation to the next. Even where there has been unpleasantness,...

    I think that the horse sales/commissions business model has a lot to do with it.

    Trainers benefit a lot from having specialized horses with a high sales/lease turnover rate. Every time a rider...
