    I'm pretty surprised that people think the OP should drop it. The company has to be trusted to provide safe transit for your horse. They loaded it on a trailer with a problem and it got hurt. They...

    I personally have no patience for this kind of crap. She can't have t both ways. If she billed you for cleaning then the blankets came back to the barn. Now they're not around so they were in the...

    My guy has done BN & Nov with 4 eggbar shoes without studs, not that I disagree with the recommendation. He does, however, live in bell boots. He usually wears 4 bell boots for everything except...

    I strongly believe that if you set the time limit for BN so that there are no time penalties until you reach Prelim speed then some (not all) people will believe that makes Prelim time reasonable for...

    Ok, so people have complained that lower level courses are tricky and trappy and that too many people yahoo around. So the answer is to let people ride BN at Prelim speed, add novice jumps and see if...

    I'd personally sell him so fast it'd be a blur. I'd then pay off all my bills and then go buy another horse in a nicer price range than I was used to shopping.

    You see, that's a life-changing...

    I'm glad you found a trainer to work with. You still should thoroughly evaluate for physically problems, such as vision issues, Lyme, etc.

    And not to be contrary, but I'm a bit concerned about...

    BO sounds like she's a bit emotional but has lots of free "hanging out" time. Is everything else ok with the care of the horses & barn? Is it time to consider a move?

    I also grew up learning that everyone does hunters first to learn course riding skills. Nothing's scarier than those low level jumper riders who don't know how to balance and find the jumps. I also...

    What a great bunch if enablers!!

    Kudos to you and your boarder for getting it all set up correctly! I'd suggest that you make plans for something tragic even though it's not expected. Remember the thread on here from the BO who...

    Well she gave you the ammunition you need to get her out. If your contract says 30 days notice give her that. Otherwise if give her less. She's put you in a ave where you could lose your business if...

    Yourcolofuladdiction that's just unnecessary. You're talking to someone who's out a bunch of money and has no boots. Snarkiness is rude and not helpful.

    I think it's really nice of the Germans to leave a bronze medal for some other country. They are truly amazing!

    I remember this, though not the name of the rider. I do remember that it seemed like the ultimate bad sportsmanship. Everyone had to stand around while she had her tantrum

    I think this is a very valid point. If anyone here really thinks that there are not people out there who would like to put it into eventing they are completely wrong. We really don't need to give...

    Your points are all valid and well taken. But I still think that pushing horses that far to their limit isn't the best. And WFP said that he'd never showjumped a horse after riding that tough of a...

    I really feel that eventing has to do a better job in situations like this where the footing is worse than expected on a course that is already maxed out in difficulty, distance and terrain. I know...

    Legolas is actually greatly improved in the tempis. It was actually just a few years ago when he couldn't get them at all. But it's still not his strength. And as already mentioned, he's still young.
