    Echo all the others who say go with Option A. And to avoid dealing with this trainer in the future. After all, the original plan was to sell one horse to pay for the other's training, so presumably...

    I chose the first option right out of college, but I quickly realized that option two was really the way to go for me. The long hours six days a week (not to mention the 18+ hour days at week long...

    Coyotes will hunt during the day and at night, though extra caution should be used at dusk and dawn.

    MistyBlue has great advice, and Horsegal984 also had a good suggestion about using a placemat (or a cheap bathmat could work as well) to have her sit & wait in place for treats/pets.

    But OP, you...

    I wasn't referring to horses that have neglected hooves.

    I'm sorry, but no. You cannot grow a horse's hooves "too long" in order to avoid a reset; the horse will be out of his shoes.

    I personally have not been here, but I did a quick search for barns fitting your criteria, and came across this place, which could be a 20 minute drive from the northern part of Escondido:...

    The Del Mar racetrack is beautiful. Unfortunately OP is going to be in San Diego in April, and the 2014 racing season doesn't start until mid-July.

    Thanks for clarifying everything! What size of turnout are you looking for, and how long do you want the horse(s) to be turned out for? Space is very tight in SD, and there aren't a lot of straight...
