    OP, this company is likely not a great fit for you long-term. I think this guy is unprofessional and vulgar, but he's likely not going anywhere and less likely to change. So you will likely either...

    THIS. Talk to your current boss. You may find it's all legit, agreed up, etc., but if that's the case, you should know.

    If you will continue to have work for other people, rather than your boss,...

    I agree with a poster above, the outfit was startling. It was even a bit revolting to my taste, just not something I'm personally comfortable with. But I wouldn't go so far as to condemn her for that...

    Bingo!!!! It does make a difference to SP. That 1% adds up... I don't believe for a second that they don't "get" the math here.

    You could do something normally completely inappropriate and send an anonymous note to both trainer and rider. Or convince a rail bird to out them at a show, as someone above mentioned. Or just...

    Is it just me or is the video quality super poor? Ocala was great, very crisp.

    It's 19 degrees here and feels like 5, so I'm not going outside at all. Thankfully I don't have to. This is just what I needed...

    You don't even need to tell the school administrators why. A doctor's note without a reason is all they have a right to. It may need to indicate surgery and recovery but no details are required...

    I wouldn't do it, personally. But if something was really nice and functional, rather than deception, I can see the pull.

    I agree with finding cheap board and letting him be outside 24/7. Pull the shoes, if you can. If you have to put him a bit farther afield to find the place, I would personally want to be able to...

    DH dropped a nail in the stall. In January. I ended up doing the bulk of the work to sift through the shavings and frozen poop balls, using a combination of shovel and bare hands. Yes, I found it,...

    One of the riding academies close to me allows only one vet. He lives maybe 90 minutes away, up to 3 hours in traffic. The money is infinitely more powerful to these folks than the health of their...

    If you want to keep this horse as much as it appears, just keep him. Truth is, you might not really be helping either the horse or PO in the long run by giving him back. If you can give this horse a...

    Nothing, really. It's just not bearable. I'm hibernating. It's been a rough month - death in the family, busy at work, too icy to ride.

    Well, I'm forever grateful that my horses are well taken...

    Well, I was vegan. Past-tense. And by definition - to me - that really means never ever ever cheating. I recall accidentally getting meat when traveling - it involved family members vomiting in the...

    Exactly. I grew up without any label. But our diet was strictly vegan and we avoided all animal by-products. So no animal soaps, no cosmetics, no leather goods of any type, and generally home-made or...

    I agree there is no relationship between veganism and riding horses - or I will say no inherent relationship.

    Clearly a strict vegan would probably not use any leather tack. I was raised a very...

    I'm not a fan of the CAIR panels. I find that they are pretty hard and unforgiving. I prefer wool or foam. But sounds like you've done OK with CAIR, and I think the horse that complained needed a...

    My mother in law just passed away in hospice. It wasn't pretty. She had a DNR so we said she would not have wanted a feeding tube as we felt that was in line with her wishes.
