    I think you're not being unreasonable. While they may not need to adhere to a VERY precise schedule, some sort of schedule should be made so that boarders know what is happening when.

    What I find...

    My first dressage saddle was a Childeric I bought for my TB. It. Was. Amazing. And when I sold it (because it was in no way going to fit my next horse) I got a good amount of money for it.

    DH is getting a new 30' x 60' workshop/garage, so while the excavator was here, we cleared all the junk trees (osage orange and ailanthus) from the pasture. I also had him grade an area for two...

    Thanks for all the opinions and info. And trust us, even my husband doesn't see this potential mini as a "dog" like is portrayed in the commercial. That said, while he has due respect for all the...
  5. Talk to me of miniature horses (and donks)

    Alternative title to this thread might be: The Amazon.com commercial may ruin my marriage.

    My husband is desperately begging me to buy him a mini horse or a mini donk. This isn't particularly new...

    Last winter, I put my show horse in part training for two months, and kept two at home. It was heaven. I got my social fix, always had an indoor (with mirrors!) to ride in, and took shameful...

    I had a bit of a gap with mine, and asked the boot fitter about it when I bought them. This was a very experienced person, and I was lucky to fit into boots they had in stock.

    At at any rate, she...

    Confirming the presence of an individual is a far cry from acknowledging that they're actually establishing a range. Its a possibility, but they aren't the eastern cougar that once roamed the...

    I went through this mental gymnastics recently about my horse. He's not worth big, big money, but he's definitely worth a whole lot more than I bought him for. I started thinking "should I try to...

    I worked full time, away from the house, and it was fine. We have neighbors, which generally made me feel better because they'd likely notice if one of the horses were in serious trouble. But even...

    My trainer asks everyone to fill out a goals sheet each year and we discuss how to meet those goals, training plan and all. The goals could be show related, like qualifying for Regionals or showing...

    I have to say that I"m in the camp of people who think the double should be allowed at Third and if people are using it poorly, judges should score them down.

    The double has been an invaluable...

    Charlotte Dujardin said something in a clinic recently that my trainer says all the time (and I'm paraphrasing this a little): Hot horses need to be ridden with a strong leg and cold horses need to...

    Dear OP -

    Yes, I have had BOs take very poor care of my horses that resulted in vet bills and other issues. Yes, I left those barns as quickly as possible. Yes, in at least one case, I probably...

    That wasn't my experience at all. I actually got my broadband faster than expected, and even then she was apologetic about "how long" it took. I think it was a total of 4-5 weeks, and we went back...

    Get. Out.

    Now.

    Seriously - even if the people who buy it keep all the land together, your friends have no idea whether they want boarders, or have just won the lottery...
