    OP, your updates completely alter the question. At first it appeared that you are a "2' rider" planning to move up to the 1.3!!!!

    LL Bean rarely discounts. I sometimes get a 10% off coupon and they do mark down "end of season" items. That said, I do think that Dover needs to look into their shipping rates. I know that shipping...

    I'd avoid her and inform the BO/BM that she might have a problem on her hands. Yes, it could have been a one off situation but maybe not. Better to steer clear.

    You could show in any class not restricted to amateurs. Often when a pro shows a horse for a client, it is to get him around in an "open" division before the owner shows in an ammy division.
