    I can kind of see the trainers point- you inherit a client who bought the wrong horse and won't sell for any number of reasons, and you can't really fix the situation, so you drug the horse. There...

    So that's an interesting definition in which you could potentially have multiple people. It seems like they should take out the care/custody and just have training and performance. At my barn, I...

    That's a really cute horse and he seems to be getting the idea of a quiet rhythm down. One thing to consider- on the last line, you made a big adjustment with your hands and he got a little flustered...

    This is true. Look, it's just hard to make a living these days even if you have useful skills (note- the ability to ride well is not particularly useful in the scheme of things). The likelihood of...

    The article.... is in Town and Country magazine, a magazine about rich people. It is not generally a magazine that writes about poor or middle class people.

    If you want to make it in the sport,...

    I'm just going to say it- if people are always snarking about your riding, there is likely a reason. If I consistently see video of bad riding or overlooking bad riding, or even a bad situation...

    And that video...kind horse and a learning rider, but after the first line, have her pull up and show her how to grab mane or make the jumps smaller. No one should practice catching a horse in the...

    The key is ugly MOMENT. An ugly ride is not productive for anyone. Yeah, we all have an ugly fence, bad transition or even some ugly tense moments. But if you keep screwing up or the horse keeps...

    Sounds like a sucktastic situation.

    If I was the OP, I'd go look for a new trainer, tell mom you don't like dealing with the current trainer. Go take initiative and tour some new barns.

    Sucks...

    I'm sure that asking people in Cleveland for trainer references after telling them they don't know how to ride is not going to get you very far.

    There are some really solid trainers up there that...

    It's not much less than entry level school teachers make where I live, pays a lot more than retail, fast food and a lot of other jobs.

    You know, screwing people on commissions aside, taking "advantage" of a pony mom.... whatever. Rich people problems are not something I worry about. They didn't get rich by being naive.

    I agree that rearing can be a pain issue etc., but a horse that deals with pain or being overfaced or being scared by rearing or reacting in a dangerous manner should never be listed as "kid safe"....

    Yeah, (&*(^ people who sell dangeorus horses to amateurs and kids. For a kid... ouch, they fall in love with a horse that is dangerous. All hell breaks loose.

    Obviously the seller knows she is an...

    If it were me, I'd take the horse back to the seller, unload, stick her in a stall and tell the seller to go *&^*&^ herself. Then I'd let everyone know about the "family horse" rearer she sold you....

    I doubt anyone wants to deal with a horse that is a pain in the ass to ride, attacks horses on turnout and drags someone. Spend as much money as you want on a vet to make sure there isn't some...

    Actually regarding trainer- a few of the boarders work with an event trainer and really like her, so someone already comes out. I work on occasion with a trainer that does eventing, dressage and...

    Cross Creek farm in Midland is about 30 minutes from Uptown. Excellent care. Big green pastures. Big ring with jumps, small dressage ring, huge jump field and trails. There is no trainer onsite, you...

    I went to the Fork, but they moved the XC to Sunday, which was a bummer. It was fun to see a mustang jump around stadium.

    I looked at the application, it really is NOT that difficult. I felt I could fill it out in maybe 10 minutes. Plus it says in bold, that you can sell, lease, transfer the horse.

    You know what, if you want to spend umpteen hundreds of dollars to show at a walk, more power to ya. I don't quite understand why you would bother- the road from lead line to walk trot should be...
