    I realize there are lots of successful stories. Know of them personally.
    But there are lots of cases that go really wrong because people hear of the success stories and don't know the in's and...

    Being a pill but this is another great example of a lease gone wrong. With so many horses out there and unwanted, I hope people re-think the idea of the mare paying for herself by being a broodmare...

    Well. I live in Alberta and there is no shortage of money....that might change. But the reason why it worked there, is probably not many breeders or riders. So not that many chances to buy. Here...

    Look at the breeding values for type, legs etc. That will tell you if they can reliably pass it on.
    Conformation is a subjective idea. A jumper will be a bit different then a dressage horse. And in...

    If you are actually aware of a single nutjob that is doing this you should report them. This is not common practice, it is a ton of work and really doesn't do much to help the adoption process.

    The young horse test are not really meant for someone to take an average horse and work their butt off, it is a method to identify the extraordinarily talented young horse. If it doesn't come to the...

    Honestly that is an outdated idea. Cattle people used to do it in the ole days when a calf died but it is a ton of work and you can easily just rub the smell off to the new baby. Even most cattle...

    People should ride in whatever works for them.
    I have noticed that the saddles do tend to shape how you ride. Good or bad or whatever. In a flatter saddle, the balance is different to a deep saddle....

    Registration is suppose to be a legal document claiming the horse belongs to a breed. With Wb's and the registry system, you can share members by approvals.

    I bet she might do very well. All the riding, if it is done correctly, should add to her physical strength. If you look at what many other disciplines do or what race horses used to do, this...

    Hope you get it sorted out.
    But why would someone sell breedings to a young horse with a known issue? Or even book them until the issue was resolved.

    He is bred jumper or eventer so you will want to market him that way. If you can take him to a local show or two that will help the price and give him some exposure to people for a sale. There is...

    It is how the question was worded. Like he is some unknown stallion with no info. Which is, a bit silly.

    This guy is 19th in the world. If you take away the Freestyle, and use GP as that is what is comparable to 20 years ago, you see similar scores at the top. 80 is still very uncommon. ...

    Genetically, this makes no sense at all.
    So I then can buy an average mare and use all the best stallions because the mare is just icing? Of course not.

    This is a very trusting viewpoint. You are trusting that the selection is for the betterment and no other factors are at hand.
