    They did not pull the donation. The donation was made and it was sold. So CDCTA is out the money it should have had in its fundraising efforts. And CDCTA did a great deal of promotion for KFEC. ...

    Why would you be giving up on your horse if you leased? You should not jump a horse with ring bone, so unless you want to be a dressage queen, then why not lease. A lease isn't forever and it would...

    Pologirl, they donated to a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Someone PAID $$$ for that entry through our auction. CDCTA received the money. That person can't use the entry he/she paid for, just as the...

    The water source is direct into the waterer from underneath. I also have hydrants near my waterers (you can have both) because it is possible that something could go awry with the waterer and I will...

    MLI, the donation was for an entry in the spring recognized HT. It has been cancelled and no compensation offered to CDCTA. We did take the high road and refunded the bid. I have no interest in...

    Why not look for a free lease that can jump? You first time out might be at the starter level at an unrecognized. The fences are low and straightforward, but will give you a taste for it. I think...

    If you already have water and electric run out to the every paddock, then it's not going to be that much digging and set up. I have had great luck with Miraco's Lil Spring waterers, both one and two...

    Beats me MLI, but I sure wish the owners were supportive of the donations made from their facility. I am not going to get into management issues, but a stand-up place would have honored the entry or...

    ROFLMAO. Then have your source explain why they reneged on the entry for the Spring HT donated to the CDCTA Silent Auction. I had to refund it to the bidder as the owners were not holding a HT and...

    11 hands is a small pony to me. I actually think that is an advantage. Most of the real minis I know are used for driving, not riding. It can be really tough to find a competent rider that small...

    Sorry Winding Down but I disagree with you completely. The owners have never been supportive of the HTs and are not recruiting an organizer at present. The whole reason there was a HT at KFEC was...

    My understanding is that Jim Moore was the licensed organizer for a recognized HT. He is looking at options for moving holding another recognized HT at another place.

    As a seller, I always start with catching the horse in the field for a prospective buyer. The reason is simple -- I owned a horse as a kid who was a royal PIA to catch. It is a big deal to me that...

    I thought minis were 38 inches or smaller. 11 hands is 44 inches and I have always considered that a small pony, not a mini. Basically ponies are smart and probably know how to evade the beginner...

    Glad you have resolution. I would venture that reading the contract is a good idea, but making sure you have good open communication with the BO is even more important. You really get much more...

    It does and it doesn't to me, but I'd like to hear what others say. I offer field board because it is low overhead. Most of my expenses are fixed. Only the amount of hay and feed is variable...

    Yes, a CGL policy should cover property damage to third parties. Horses are property. There are limits on how much property would be covered, but its usually not an insignificant amount.

    The male "co-star" looked very uncomfortable riding. I am sure he was happy to get away from the horses.

    OP, are you trail riding alone or with others? It sounds like you are alone as no other horses were mentioned. I have found that horses will behave differently when riding alone than with a group. ...

    ^THIS. Because is she can get there independently, which I assume means she can drive, then she must be somewhere else. I would want to find out where that might be.
