    My background is development but I've been a PM for the last 13 years. I will say that I'd like to go back to development to have more time - I find that as PM, which turns more into Product Manager...

    Can I join, can I join?

    I'm not exactly new to dressage, having evented as a teen, but I'm definitely a re-rider! The BFDP (big fat draft pony) and I had a lesson this past weekend with Andrea...

    Wet footing. A snow clump in the indoor that came from his own foot. A leaf in the indoor. The letter A. His own reflection. His own tail.

    (He is quite special)

    In the comments someone has noted that the owner is being charged. Now, what happens next is still up in the air, but it does sound like they are indeed being charged.

    Yeah, I gotcha, I managed a stable and had to deal with clients. OTOH, I'm just not feeling the solid-ness of the communication here. It wasn't a case of "I told her that we will only fill the...

    Except that it doesn't sound like the BO set those rules, had those discussions up front. She allowed the boarder to come in and free feed hay and THEN got upset that the hay was wasted. If she'd...

    I might be inclined to let Debbie know regardless. In a situation that I know of that was similar to this, the person was not to sell the horse, and yet they were doing so.

    There are barns that may acommodate this (I've been in barns where application of leg boots of all sorts are de rigeur for turnout) but it sounds as though (again) this was not something discussed...
  9. Suppose, but this doesn't seem to be so much...

    Suppose, but this doesn't seem to be so much "rule" as philosophy. I've run a boarding stable in the past and screening clients is a pretty important process to keep both parties happy.

    Please fill the water troughs outside. Watering once a day isn't going to cut it in the cold weather when my horse drinks his buckets dry because he hasn't had enough water during the day. $5000...

    I would rather a horse have more hay and less grain, if said horse is wasting it, a small hole haynet is appropo. Surprised you didn't sort this out before the boarder came.

    My horses all do some form of liberty work just sort of naturally. Post ride we always clean up the indoor and they follow me and respond to verbal and non verbal commands. Sometimes we do a little...

    I have one horse (a QH) who can go a month or two without being ridden. Pull him out of the pasture, longe him a few spins to get the inevitable bucks out and he is good to go.

    Another of mine is...

    Uh...yes, on some days. And the pressure of riding can make things a little less secure than desired, so it's something I like to check on post ride....


    However, since someone here turned me on...
  15. Board Prices/Nice barns in/around San Luis Obispo?

    Friend is a dressage rider moving potentially to SBO and is wondering about nice barns and pricing. Care is important to her, fanciness of the facility less so. Any ideas or recommendations?

    I think we should go the other way and allow only horse drawn carriages on the streets in NYC. Taxicabs are terrifying deathboxes. Mackinac Island does it and it's delightful.

    I have never had a trainer comment on my saddle. Of course, I've never really asked. I used to love my flat Crosby PDN when I lived in hunterland yet one of my horses goes in a rather deep seated...

    $300/mo full board, mostly 12/12. Hay is grown at the farm and we all help put it up when we can. Large lit indoor with rubber crumb footing, decent size outdoor with ok footing. Supplements fed if...

    This.

    I have one regret as a horse-mom in that I didn't encourage my kids to ride in the various ways that I should have. It's awesome that he's interested!

    Or for 20 minutes. Really. When I was first starting to ride again, 20 minutes was killer.

    Or 20 minutes on my green horse. Every single part of me hurts after working him.

    Just watched Carl Hester's Masterclass where one of his UL show horses lives out 24/7. I'd be curious to find out how he manages him.
  22. Unidentified stiffness, not sure where to start with this horse

    My gelding comes out of the field/stall and for the first 5-10 minutes of a ride or a longe looks completely crippled. Actually looks like a navicular horse/pedal osteitis - itty bitty steps, tight...

    I have been a horse person since I was little and the gap in time only was a pause because of some poor life choices that I'd made. My friends are very supportive, my family members, well, some are...

    She killed an innocent horse.

    Not they.

    She.

    Whether she did it by madness or by cruelty, she did it. Just absolutely heartbreaking.
