    You are not being a whiny brat, you are enforcing your original boundaries. You are not preventing them from doing what they want to do, you are merely asserting your right not to participate in that...

    Neither.

    You are still holding the money, yes? I mean, you haven't yet forked over "your share" for this limo and whatever else?

    Well, I'm not the one spending my time on the internet telling people what they can't do, telling other people you don't believe what they did do, and then repeatedly leveling paragraphs worth of...

    I'm going to have to ask that you start reading my posts for comprehension and stop lecturing me like I'm a 2yo correcting me about stuff I didn't actually say.

    Unless they would like the more advanced rider to give the horse a good ride and school him a bit.

    Learning how to tune up a horse is actually a valuable skill.

    It's also pretty clear that I wasn't equating Manhattan with Midtown, since I was merely naming one area of the city where someone might live to be 5 min from work, but hey.

    When I named the...

    It's fairly typical and you see that sort of price structure all the time but I can never for the life of me figure out why people go for it.

    I mean, I don't know how anyone else does math, but to...

    You are aware that if you try to stop someone outside the St. Regis and explain to them that they are in a "very different" place than Manhattan you will be supplying them with incorrect...

    I lived in Jersey City a couple years ago, which is a 15 min train ride from the city.

    I had a sale horse my senior year in college and horses throughout all of law school.

    After college you will need to balance your horse pursuits with a full time job, so there is no reason not to...

    From a home base AROUND Manhattan is a lot easier than from a home base IN Manhattan.

    Stick with NJ or LI.

    Don't even bother with the BO.

    See if the people will take the horse on trial at their place for a week and if they like him they can keep him and if not they can send him back.

    Double you...

    I'be restarted horses for other people and generally turned them into something I could ride and the owner could ride if they followed directions. Consistency of both work schedule and approach is...

    We had 3-4 hours a day when I was in high school, but there were also one or two study halls. Having a decent amount to do prepared me for college and managing my time.

    Once I got into a college...

    It's horrendous and the trick for me is to wear completely ridiculous sneakers (read: clunky and bad colors) that already have arch support built in, and then put additional arch support insoles in...

    Really, you were responding to Denny Emerson's specific advice that you need to come from money, give up a $100k job and buy a $75k competition horse? Because I am on his feed too and I see him...

    Yeah, well, adult responsibilities are the results of choices you have made. No one forced you to get a demanding non-horse job; you could have gone the working student route. The fact that for...
