    Perhaps there was a power outage or flood or their warehouse people got sick, or they found that the in-stock item was mislabeled and not what you ordered and they had to, in fact, get your items...

    Oh, I don't think kicking is the way to solve this problem. Although it might be sort of fun.

    Several people have complained to both the smokers and the property owners. No reply from the property owner, and threats from the smokers -- threats that have since become reality. That's the "in...

    Smoking in the Barn - WWYD?

    Okay, so the barn where we ride has a few trainers operating independently there. One of those trainers is not someone whose horsemanship I respect, but I don't have to ride with him so I mind my own...

  8. ACL Surgery (BUMP)

    How are all you post-op ACLers? I am 1.5 weeks post op, hamstring autograft.

    I am so afraid of compromising the graft until it's fully homogenized, I can't even begin to think about riding. I...
  9. So how are those knees after all this time?

    I just tore my ACL, have a grade 2(a) MCL tear, and a small meniscal tear that is close enough to blood supply that it will likely heal without surgery. ACL needs total reconstruction. I am 4 weeks...

    Okay, so Option 1 is what we are going with. It will be attached to an existing building that looks like a monitor barn, but is actually a guest cottage.

    Here's a pic of the existing building to...

    Thank you! Option 1 was my choice too. I had to prove to a certain horse husband (who's well intentioned, but not so horsey) that Option 2 just won't fly--too awkward. Tongs a lot!

    Which One Would You Go With?

    I have two barn plans that are in our budget and that will work with the existing building.

    Which layout to you prefer and why?

    Granted the 8' aisle is narrow, but we figured it would be a...

    Update: (in case anyone was curious ;)) I bought the horse after a 5-day trial and my own vet's PPE. I LOVE the horse. He does have some training issues that a 2-week trial would have discovered,...

    Lessons Near Boca Raton

    I have a friend who lives in Boca, but is a born and raised NYC girl. She would like to take riding lessons, and I want to recommend a barn that is great with beginner adults.

    Ideally this would...

    Oooh, very good point. But it's neither here nor there now. The sale barn requires an agreed upon purchase price before any trial takes place, and the horse's owner and I are not close on price.

    Great advice all around. Thank you.

    jenm, you're sort of right about the first option. If he passed the PPE at the consignment barn and I pay the 10% to take him on trial and proves to be a nutcase (albeit a sound one), then I'm out...

    So, the only way I can get my deposit back is with OPTION 2-- if the horse fails his PPE at my place.

    Here's the story:

    I finally found a nice horse for myself. I hope to eventuallydo some low level eventing with him, but I've only ridden him in the ring so far. I would like to take him home on...

    More good suggestions!

    The land around me can't be built upon (or at least it can't be subdivided and developed) because the development rights were sold to the town's Agricultural Commission.
