    Thanks everyone, great ideas! Either Zone 1 or 2, but New York or NE would be ideal since they are from NE.

    Watching youngsters free jump

    Hi,

    I was watching some loose jumping videos of a young horse I liked the look of a lot. 3 years old, quite well built but almost every time it went to the jump (the arena in the video is probably...

    I think owner pays for euthanasia because that is, I believe, always their decision. Unless it was very clearly the fault of the lessor, though I've never read a lease where that was explicitly...

    I've done it, though I will say that unless you are with a trainer with a lot of extras or the kid already has a horse, you should expect to ride a lot less than they do. I've half leased but been...

    Thanks!

    Any sense of the Amateur/Club/Pro? I'm kind of thinking Club would be appropriate, since I am on my university's team, but I want to be sure!
    Also, there is a space for "function" and...

    I am working on the application for WEG 2014, and I am a 200-level college level of French, but my horse french is not particularly sophisticated. How do I say that I do jumpers? What are the...

    I've body clipped with Andis clippers and you're right that they are slow. I found them frustrating, and you can probably do better.

    Working for a "reputable" trainer may not be the best way to get riding hours, etc. No matter what, it's a "slavery" thing, and for the bigger barns more so. You need to prove yourself through the...

    Thanks, that was very helpful! It seems silly to spend as much or more than the purchase price to shop around, but I didn't want to put off potential sellers.
  17. Trying horses without a trainer? How much does your trainer charge?

    Hi,

    I was curious how you felt about a reasonably experienced (can ride young, silly, etc. without scaring anyone) young adult rider trying horses (Under $25k) alone first, and bringing a trainer...

    I would wear an under armour shirt under a polo or a long-sleeved polo, then a crew neck sweater and a vest over it if necessary.
