    The only time I use one is my shy pee-er when I'm traveling with the dogs. It's great at rest areas because I can stand at the top of an embankment and let my dogs explore a bit, and the shy one can...

    Random thought -

    Could it be that the top US facilities have such good footing for training and for competition that our BNR's horses are "spoiled"? I gather that the WEG xc footing was an issue,...

    If both are willing to compromise a bit and neither is the jealous type (especially the stay-at-home one), then yes, it can work.

    If you don't have a written contract I'd have her out in less than a week for that sort of screw-up. If you do have a contract you'll have to follow it, but I'd raise the roof with her still over...
