    Why would a vet necessarily know what the monetary value is of any horse? Unless they are also a horse trader.

    Some of these remarks indicate complete confusion as to what vets do vs. what...

    I think as the seller you can just say "OK so what?" Your concern is what other selling opportunities you have, aside from this prospective buyer. A buyer can discuss price with whomever they like,...

    Exactly.

    From your description, OP, I would look to the human in the equation. He needs more to do (and deserves that).

    An intelligent horse is not a bad thing. But they do need to be provided...

    Most people can only afford so many horses, and that's as true, or more so, of trainers as it is of anyone else. If it is apparent that this horse is not going to work out as hoped (including as a...

    So yesterday I took Sir Spooksalot (not his real name) out on a long hand-walk to be nice to him since he's been stuck in the barn on no turn-out for a few days due to weather. We walked over jump...

    Is he in a good home now?

    If so, would it be wiser to let it be?

    So long as they take good care of him and handle any issues with his best interests in mind, his age and breed are just...

    Have those who object to Nike as a sponsor let Rolex know ... or are they just complaining on the internet?

    I think your new approach sounds like a good idea. All trails, with real work and structure. Sounds like you made progress on the one ride. Can't expect complete perfection the first time. Think in...

    Well, I can't judge ... at one board barn a New Boarder came in who was very different in personality from the rest of the serious-rider but otherwise laid-back barn. New Boarder was a bit...

    This.

    What you say probably won't matter as much as how you say it. Or better yet, just stay back and enjoy the show and your popcorn. :)

    A horse needs to be at least somewhat calm to be able to learn. A horse in a frantic state of mind can't learn. I think that's why some of these horses just don't get past it. Maybe there is some...

    I have a personal saying: put out a cattle call, and the cattle will come.

    That isn't just an "unoccupied space", it's an income space for the barn. They need time to replace you as a boarder. The contract is protecting them from the loss of income from a boarder leaving...

    This was my first thought as well. I have trail-ridden every horse I've owned (6) and they were from different performance disciplines. I would never introduce a horse to trails by himself,...

    Agree with this! :)

    OP, what do your parents say about this? If they haven't taken a position, perhaps you could just ask them what their thoughts are, what they see as the pros and cons. Say...

    I find that a very, very odd expression of the relationship between parents and their children. Glad I was raised in a different mindset. Even if as a kid I was so sure I knew it all and did not need...

    I think you are an insightful and caring sister. That kind of discomfort with two siblings in one competitive activity is absolutely normal ... and it lasts a lifetime, btw! :)
