    I used to race (crit, road, stage races) and then later switched to longer distance events of 100-200 miles with 15k+ vertical elevation gain, so I've spent many hours in the (bike) saddle!

    OP, my advice would be to start with whatever you have in writing, beginning with the contract and then continuing via email or text communication.

    Go through the terms of your lease contract and...

    They have a very nice stable downtown. Apparently it cost quite a lot to build...$30M I believe. They have an indoor arena, very large and airy stalls.

    OP, I know most of the farms that have been mentioned thus far. Send me a PM if you would like details on my observations.

    There's a lot of stuff this person does behind the farm owner's back when they aren't around. There are rules about no dogs on the property, there are rules about not feeding other peoples' horses,...

    Good for him! I wonder if he will be on the same horse.


    Does anyone know what the minimum scores are he would need in the qualifying competitions that were referred to in the article?

    A lot of people chose to focus on the word rather than the content. I find that happens quite often on COTH and one reason why it seems at times like horseshowdiva, where people seem more intent on...

    The police stables in the Mercedes building are very nice! I've been by when the doors were open so one could see in. They have a riding arena where they can school horses, with stalls located on one...
  10. Very good point.

    Very good point.
  11. :lol:

    Yeah, having a Christmas where people can go out in t-shirts was crazy for the mid-atlantic area. It was nice while it lasted, but I agree, I hope we don't all end up paying for it some other way.

    The barn had to institute a rule about not feeding treats to other peoples horses because of what this particular boarder was doing.

    @JTT: so who is the problem boarder? I think it is pretty...

    OP, there are probably as many answers to this question as there are horses and people riding them :)

    Sometimes it can even vary by the individual horse depending on how it is on a given day or...

    Manni01, you get it as does js, enjoytr, beck, and a few others.

    I'm :lol: this is gone on for 5+ pages. A lot of people are getting hung up on a single word instead of just simply stating what...

    I gleaned some useful information from a few posts.

    Interesting how some people go so hung up on the word "livid" (which in the context of the internet is hard to tell what it means anyway) -...

    This isn't an app, but the book is amazing: "The Rider's Fitness Program".

    I think you can find it on Amazon for ~$20 or so. I started the program in the summer and noticed a big difference in my...

    I think most people have taken it completely out of context and gone loopy over it. It's a safety concern people! Plain and simple! :lol:

    What you described about in your post is similar to what is going on with this person. While they may have had good intentions, their physical situation is such that sitting down in the stall with a...

    No, it's a safety issue as I mentioned previously.

    I guess some people have less worry about safety issues. Go back and check the original post. This isn't about going into a stall and checking on a horse, this is about people going in the stall and...

    the weather has started to get really cold where I am, horses are getting out less, and so horses tend to act up a bit. This woman is older, somewhat frail and it is absolutely not safe for her to...

    that's pretty close to what I said to that person.

    lol. That is totally not it. How do people get stuff out of context? Going into another horse's stall is not appropriate. It's a safety issue. There are rules about this. :lol:

    I think you missed what I said in my original post about the email. It was pretty tame. Go back and read it.

    This post was for the purpose of seeing what other people would do in that situation...
