    Horses are a classic subject for art! Whistlejacket, Marengo, Degas at the racetrack...

    I appreciate the question, "why is it art" because it made me think of phrases like "poetry in motion"...

    I was thinking about this exactly! River flooding is great for the soil, but lake flooding, coastal flooding just don't have the same benefits. I think it's not only the nutrients in the river...

    I find land management endlessly fascinating.

    HungarianHippo and JoZ both nailed it: steep, with poor soil. Fencing, like Sid said, would also be a problem. It was supposed to be "horse...

    Pasture that is in flood zone?

    Front of the property, where the structures would be, is not in flood plain. Back of property, where pasture would be, is in FEMA Zone A. Land is near, but not directly adjacent to, a lake.

    I would be annoyed if you did this for free, then changed your mind and tried to charge.

    If you do not currently charge for this service, then you are being compensated for your time by your day...

    I would try a snaffle with a port, like a Myler, or like the bit Winding Down posted.

    This makes perfect sense if your horse is already in a program and in training! Leasing a made show horse, that makes sense to me.

    Has anyone ever leased a horse that has been sitting in a...

    I think this is the original problem in the "bonkers lease" thread.
  12. Spinoff: bonkers lease - who pays for training?

    In a lease situation, who pays for training / pro rides?

    Does the type of lease make a difference (full, half, free, lease-to-own)?

    I can see this getting really sticky if the horse's value...

    LMAO... Bluey, you sure hit the nail on the head there. I started trying horses on my 32nd birthday.

    Horse shopping has commenced. :eek:

    Bachelor #1 is a LOVELY horse, does everything I want a horse to do: quiet, athletic, sound, etc... But he's not my "type".

    I have always preferred TB's;...

    Look seriously at the Southeast. UF, FSU, UGA, and SCAD all have excellent equestrian sports programs, mild winters, and in Florida especially, low tuition. In fact, depending on your home state,...

    This is a great point-- in my case, I don't actually spend nearly that percent on horses-- it's less than half that! But I am a young professional making some positive life changes, so I am thinking...

    It seems pretty simple to me that there should be a low level amateur class for green riders and a low level horse class for green horses.

    The horse-by-age classes should have really friendly...

    I can feel the difference in power from the inside hind vs. the outside hind, especially on a circle or turn. It helps to be familiar with the horse! I might have to peek at the shoulder on an...

    Yes, the closest I have come to figuring out the ideal balance is to see it as a % of disposable income. So for example, X% of income is disposable, and Y% of that amount is spent on horses.

    Jung is so smooth, so precise, so fast, so still, so invisible.

    He barely touches his horses' mouths on XC, to the point that he lets his reins get longer than most riders. The horses look...
