    I'm sure the OP can do it, but she shouldn't have to. None of those reasons justifies refusing to list a horse with a price. They all sound very unprofessional. Nor am I convinced by other excuses...

    Do you seriously think that wealthy celebrities care about the opinions of this “forum of horse people, online”? Perhaps some people in this thread are not strangers to each other, but almost all...

    Posters are not sharing their comments in the presence of grieving family members. This is an online discussion among strangers about a tragic car accident where alcohol was involved. Can’t you see...

    This. Good dressage training takes a lot of time and skill. Sound, well trained (with potential for more), spook-free young horses are rather uncommon and generally sell for much more than the OP...

    Sure, it takes some of the luster off TC’s record. It’s disheartening that BC is upset that she is the scapegoat (if indeed that is the situation), but doesn't deny the act, doesn’t seem bothered by...

    That is a peculiar video. DSharp was great, CR was bizarre. Overall, didn't like it.

    Thanks for sharing such a sweet story. Your daughter is an incredibly lucky little girl! I hope she and Max have many happy years together.

    About what do you expect to spend for a horse like this? Just curious.

    As long as you're content to sit back and watch, then sure it's no problem. I was referring to the many riders and breeders with the ambition, work ethic, and talent to succeed at the highest...

    I do see the point that breeders are making on this thread. However, if all goes well with their horse and rider, the breeder/owner has a very valuable asset at the end of the relationship. If the...

    I don't suppose that Europeans are any more honest than Americans so no need for the patronizing eye roll. My point was that in Europe an educated buyer can actually see a great many young horses in...

    Even if buyers could tell the difference between a star horse and an average one, how would they know which farms to visit in our very large country? All youngsters—the good and not so good—are...

    Almost everyone who has posted agrees that the best team was chosen. It appears that written rules were followed in selecting team members. The controversy surrounds CR's immature and melodramatic...

    This seems like an accurate summary of the situation. In the US you have to be blessed with extremely wealthy and horse-oriented parents to seriously pursue dressage or other horse sports as a child...

    This seems like a silly question. Obviously the 10,000 rule won't change the way we develop athletes in horse sports. The vast majority of highly interested, determined, ambitious riders (whether or...

    I agree with this list, but I would re-arrange the order:

    Luck
    Money
    Determination
    Ambition
    Talent

    It takes extraordinary good luck for a kid to be born to parents, horse professionals or...

    I wish every young woman could read this thread as an example of why they should not give up their careers when they get married and have kids. It's too easy to become dependent and controlled when...

    In the US, the asking prices for exceptionally well-bred weanlings generally seem to be in the 8-12K range, though some are less and some are more. For a two year old, 10-15K. It's harder to know...

    Maybe there would be more qualified young horse trainers if people could make a decent living in this occupation. But sadly this is not the case in the US.

    Never mind 5 and the dogsitter. The real nuts in this saga are the OP's parents. Who in the world hires a dog sitter when their own daughter and her dogs will be living in the house while...
