    FWIW I prefer clean buckets. I don't scrub or even dump every single day but I do at least a few times per week. I don't see a full bucket after a horse has been in all day as a full bucket, I see it...

    I think most people on COTH have the bare-bones basics of training down ;)

    People clarify semantics on the forum because COTH has a wide range of users from many different backgrounds, some of...

    Ahh, I met one of those rare creatures once. A sweet little 3yo Haflinger gelding named Truman. He was sold as halter broke straight of the field of the breeder to a single mother of three as a mount...

    I put a very nice saddle on craigslist for $1,800. Guy contacts me, I take all the pics he wanted. Gave him measurements. Went back and took pictures of...

    An interview she did popped up on my news feed around the time the original thread was posted in COTH. In it she called training for the Olympics her "side hustle". I don't know why it struck a nerve...

    If all that is true, her possibly being suicidal and such, this girl needs therapy beyond anything she will find in a barn and help from far more qualified people than yourself and the barn owners.

    I would feel obliged to tell her my house has a mortgage, I'm still paying student loans and my truck has a bank note so if she gets herself hurt tucking my horse in for a nap she'll spend more money...
