    FWIW, I agree with the poster who says just buy the horse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Even though other posters have made successful arrangements, I'm not sure I could ever trust a person (or even a contract)...

    This makes perfect sense if your horse is already in a program and in training! Leasing a made show horse, that makes sense to me.

    Has anyone ever leased a horse that has been sitting in a...

    I think this is the original problem in the "bonkers lease" thread.
  4. Spinoff: bonkers lease - who pays for training?

    In a lease situation, who pays for training / pro rides?

    Does the type of lease make a difference (full, half, free, lease-to-own)?

    I can see this getting really sticky if the horse's value...

    LMAO... Bluey, you sure hit the nail on the head there. I started trying horses on my 32nd birthday.

    Changing your "Type"

    Horse shopping has commenced. :eek:

    Bachelor #1 is a LOVELY horse, does everything I want a horse to do: quiet, athletic, sound, etc... But he's not my "type".

    I have always preferred TB's;...

    Look seriously at the Southeast. UF, FSU, UGA, and SCAD all have excellent equestrian sports programs, mild winters, and in Florida especially, low tuition. In fact, depending on your home state,...

    This is a great point-- in my case, I don't actually spend nearly that percent on horses-- it's less than half that! But I am a young professional making some positive life changes, so I am thinking...

    It seems pretty simple to me that there should be a low level amateur class for green riders and a low level horse class for green horses.

    The horse-by-age classes should have really friendly...

    I can feel the difference in power from the inside hind vs. the outside hind, especially on a circle or turn. It helps to be familiar with the horse! I might have to peek at the shoulder on an...

    Yes, the closest I have come to figuring out the ideal balance is to see it as a % of disposable income. So for example, X% of income is disposable, and Y% of that amount is spent on horses.

    I...

    Horse Expenses as % of Income?

    Of course there is plenty of financial advice about what % of income goes to housing and other "normal" expenses. But what is a reasonable % of income to spend on horsekeeping? 10%? More? Less? ...

    Jung is so smooth, so precise, so fast, so still, so invisible.

    He barely touches his horses' mouths on XC, to the point that he lets his reins get longer than most riders. The horses look...

    I didn't have a cell phone when I was 22. I took the bus to school. I had a lot of roommates. My school paid me (a little bit) more than my tuition each semester in scholarships and such, and I...

    One really interesting fact about eventing is the recent change in format. Olympic eventing now uses the "short format" rather than the "long format" program.

    Live Feeds - Are They Recorded?

    I tuned into the WEF Jumper Derby a little late and missed the first few rounds. Is there a way to go back and watch the whole class?

    I wish they would show Thunder on TV more often.

    I went to Florida State, where we have a horse, Renegade, as our school symbol.
