    If the lease contract is silent on termination (notice period, penalties) then you may end the lease immediately. I assume the owner wrote the contract, so it's not your fault if he did a poor job...

    Working for a non-profit that awards grants, my guess is that USEA was uncomfortable with the means testing aspect. We have 1.5 FTEs dedicated to our grants, but I suspect that USEA does not have...

    All my horses are spoiled. They live out 24/7 in small herds and have normal horse life. They don't have to wear horse clothes while in the field. They get fed daily, get farrier and vet care, and...

    Tell new owner to stop posting about the horse on FB. Also UNFRIEND the rescue.

    I received a shipment of 7 consignment horses from Canada. The owner used a private shipper who had the permits for crossing the border. I do remember that there was a time window on being at the...

    Possibly the best thing you can do for this horse is find him an owner who is a better fit for his needs. I would not look at it as a negative for you or the horse.

    If your friend wants to keep the horse as a breeding stallion, I think she will need a BOS or other paperwork to transfer the horse. I know that's how it works in my breed. You can't just call the...

    Agreed about helmets. There are lots of helmet studies because they are used in biking, motorcycle sports, etc. There is a much bigger and older data set out there. I would not confuse helmets...

    I agree that the ONLY way you help with the sale is to first get payment for what is due and get a contract that stipulates what you will do and be compensated for in the sale. The parents are...

    I thought the horse was being half-leased. Can that person help ride the horse in demos? Clearly DD is not going to be available to help sell the horse.

    I'm neutral even though I am on the selling side. If there is something wrong, I want to know about it. I take consignments, so I am selling horses for others who I may have known for a while and...

    Honestly OP, this is all about you and not about the horse. If the horse is doing well at his current location, leave him alone. Moving is hard on horses. The chance of injury goes up dramatically...

    OP, you have a perfectly good reason to vent. You mistook this family for nice people. They aren't nice at all; they are into instant gratification without the slightest concern about the animal. ...

    I remember the earlier thread about the AWOL teen. Dad was the person paying the bills, or in this case not.

    Email doesn't work with them. It is going to have to be a letter, but don't count in...

    My late great mare would do whatever you could to keep a rider on her back. I think I came off only once in the 18 years I owned her and that was my fault entirely. In comparison, the evil pony...

    I sell somewhere between 5 - 10 horses a year. I am a breeder, but have ended up doing consignments for others. I also buy a few from time to time.

    A prospective buyer can ask all the...

    The time to negotiate is now and don't be shy about it. If you want to maintain your hours (I assume you take a shorter lunch), then ask immediately. For commuting reasons, it is much easier for me...

    If you can't ride anymore because your horse is lame or you are lame, then definitely take up DRIVING. Driving is much easier and less dangerous than riding because you never fall off! And if you...
