    If the lesson rider asked for her lesson to be video'd so she could review it later, I think that's a reasonable request the trainer should accomodate. If the former student was just videoing...

    If you engage with her dramatics and justify your reasons, you are inviting her to negotiate. Even using phrases like "I'm sorry but, " or "I wish she could stay here but the drive is just too...

    Give some thought, though, to the quality of the soil. Assuming the excavator went to a typical depth, and mounded the fill on top of the horse, you likely have very clay-y soil now at the surface. ...

    Sure seems to me like you are setting him up to fail. Repeating every day won't fry his brain but repeated failure sure damages your mutual confidence.

    ok, sorry for the error. That 18,000-word run-on paragraph on Vicki Morgan's FB page made my eyes bleed and I probably missed some details. :lol:

    I don't know the org, but appears Midwest TB is a nonprofit that finds OTTBs new homes. Midwest TB sold 30 of their horses to this Mary Mead woman who claimed she would rehome them. Mead pretty...

    Sucks what Mead did, hope there's a legal angle here to make her suffer consequences. Also completely foolish for the seller to imagine there was going to be any other outcome than kill auction.

    Those are amazing. (But <oooof> on that metal one! You'd certainly have a lot of incentive not to get bounced off center.

    Good point above on the ball-bearing factor.
    OP, how about creating large buffer areas of pea gravel around the water troughs? You'd need geotextile to keep it on the surface, so a bit extra...

    a barn I worked at put down pea gravel outside their run-in. I hated it-- when fresh, it was "mushy" for me to walk through, and then it got smushed into the mud really quickly. It just didn't seem...

    oh come on, no need for straw man arguments. The OP did not say she kicks horses out of the barn for an abscess or short-term injury. I think it's safe to assume that not a single one of us knows of...

    Meup makes an excellent point about the size of the deposit. That the amount is a factor in the decision is your gut telling you that there IS risk. Not saying the seller will screw you over, but at...

    how do the windows open/close-- are they sliders, or do they crank open?
    If sliders, I'd consider horizontal bars--easily DIY with conduit.

    Sorry, wasn't clear to me what changes the horse's value, or makes him unsurmountably far by being trailered 4 hours away. Is the Former Rider putting training on a lame horse, or is it a higher...

    I hope my post didn't come across as mocking; no intention. I read the phrase "conditioning work" and pictured walk/trot sets over some measurable length. If just clambering up & over a ~10ft wide...

    Yup. Pass on putting the deposit down, but do so in a way that keeps the door open with seller. All that's changing as of Wednesday is that the horse is being transferred to a new barn, but it's...

    Cost prohibitive. A 15ft-wide lane with 30ft rise over 100ft would require ~850 cubic yards of fill. That's a really really big number for a short, relatively narrow lane. Probably ten to fifteen...
