    Amen to that. Why are you hanging around with these people?

    How many of them know and are doing nothing? This is horrendous cruelty - horrendous. The horse was in agony, with or without food &...

    I will mention that during my time in hunter-jumpers, mostly hunter showing, I met some of the best people involved in horses. People who are good, caring and honest, and who put their horses before...

    Who is "we"? Who is "you"?

    Wondering if you are thinking COTH posters have to pick a forum to be their principal COTH identity. Also wondering if those who have picked the h/j forum have picked...

    How many riders on each of those teams? Just curious.

    I hope he gives an analysis of the chances of each, the equestrian media publishes it in English and a link is posted here on the COTH forums....

    Ya know, when I see thread titles like this one ... I just remind myself that this is COTH. There is a very good horse reason behind it. :winkgrin:

    I know sometimes trainers do try to 'make it up' to another trainer when business switches between them. The trainer that is benefitting tries to give some kind of boost to the trainer that is losing...

    Many years ago I helped manage a small show/lesson stable. I handled most of the incoming calls from potential customers. There were several that insisted they be allowed to "rent" a horse without...

    Did for several years, some time ago.






    Yeah that! :D

    There are lots of ex-h/j's in eventing and/or dressage. There are horses & riders that compete in all three, either for schooling...

    IMO ... it's not that complicated, at all. Even at a championship, or last chance to qualify, I won't try to stretch the limits of 'soundness'. I don't test the horse's 'stoicism' (they are stoic by...

    I do quite a bit. As does my [sound] horse. :) I think there is a big difference in our perceptions of "what is best for the horse".

    I find the statement "What's "best for my horse, right now" is...

    Right - the behavior issue isn't really an issue for very long, if you know how to train it or can put him with a pro who does. Of course it can quickly become a nightmare if you don't know how / get...

    In any communication, however conducted, set dates. "Pick up by __[date]__" "Pay expenses by __[date]__" "If I do not hear from you by __[date]_ then ..." etc. and so on. Without dates you can end...

    Well said. :yes:

    Knowing the justifications, excuses and denials that are being posted are likely to ramp up in an attempt to refute the above post, it's probably time for me to unsubscribed to...

    Your mare and my gelding have a lot to talk about. At least she's ok with the landing. Having skittered left and right to the take-off, he gets up in the air and then takes a good hard look to see if...

    Win! :D


    Yep, this thread has confirmed all my darkest suspicions about the culture. "Wait, we don't know what was in the needle ... " :no: It doesn't matter if nothing was in the needle and...

    Goes back to the barn from warm-up. If it's me riding.

    I would point out that in addition to not making a horse ouch around a show ring, it is seldom a good thing to put pressure on a lameness or...

    Clear out all the arguments and justifications and bring it down to one question:

    What is best for the horse, right now?

    All the other complications and discussion are about the rider, what the...

    Agreed.

    He must school a dream at home, as that's the only reason I can think of for many of his not-so-successful entries.

    IMO Mandiba can't be blamed in any way for the bad choices that have...

    As a long time boarder in different barns, different care situations, if self-care will work depends entirely on how reliable your boarders are about caring for their horses. Some are golden, some...

    And if your regular vet won't do it, you can find a vet who is more sensible who will. Perhaps some vets are just more knowledgeable about what can become of horses, especially older horses who need...

    100% this.

    You have no control over what happens to them once they are no longer yours. "Good" people - even ones you know - may eventually neglect them or sell them to slaughter (maybe without...

    You are correct. Once you get to page 5 or 6 of these threads, if no new developments have been presented by the OP, it's pretty much over for new opinions. But people will continue to natter on...

    The dog could cause your horse a serious injury when it does this again - which it will. Running horses into the fence; horse kicking dog but hits another horse; etc. The excitement of all the...

    Just one time? Who was involved?

    Keep this in context. Be just. Don't let one bad apple spoil the basket, if that's the case. Don't make assumptions or jump to conclusions. And don't be...
