    Right now, I only have time/$$ for one riding lesson on a good schoolie one time per week and I jump. Typically just cross-rails and small verticals but my trainer switches up the courses and makes...

    I don't think it will be worth spending $$ for lessons at an H/J lesson barn if you are trying to move up the levels in eventing just for the sake of instruction. I think you should ride on your own...

    If you prefer dressage/flat-work and a low-key type of ride what prompted you to purchase an athletic hunter/jumper TB? Was he a good deal? Did your trainer recommend him? What was he like when...

    I get the impression that it is probably easier for the show staff to give you free tickets for next year's show rather than a true monetary refund. Perhaps they've forwarded it to the accounting...
