    Part boarder/part sharer: pays half of horse's expenses for half of the riding days in a week.

    I think the problem was that 20 yr old made my horse look really good and the jumping look easy. ...
  2. Part boarder + Training rides doesn't work?

    I have had a part boarder for almost 1 year, most recently I've been unable to ride. 6 months ago we moved barns, at new location BO has talented 20 yr old daughter who competes with a string of...

    It could simply be that's he's so cheap the buyer thinks there might be something wrong with him, like unsoundness and doesn't want to waste their time. I understand that video can be a huge pain. ...
  4. I was thinking of asking the BO this, I think the...

    I was thinking of asking the BO this, I think the answer would be very much sure, either for free or some nominal fee for facility use. The whole idea of hauling & going to a new environment is what...

    There is decent hacking where I board so it's not like part boarder & horse don't get out of the ring. I trust part boarder as a sensible horse person, otherwise I wouldn't have her riding my horse...
  6. As far as financial responsibility would covering...

    As far as financial responsibility would covering the insurance deductible sound reasonable? I would want to keep it simple as I'm not going to go after someone in court. In a perfect world a part...
  7. Would you allow part boarder to take horse on a trailer with a friend for an outing?

    I have a responsible adult part boarder who mentioned that a friend just got a horse trailer and she'd love to be able to go on outings with them. This idea makes me a bit nervous, part boarder is...
  8. Actually no, they don't do Thanksgiving in NZ so...

    Actually no, they don't do Thanksgiving in NZ so that's not why the farrier couldn't come out. However, we were doing a big Turkey feast since we're from North America. That's why I wasn't so on...
  9. My farrier does schedule in all the horses he...

    My farrier does schedule in all the horses he does where I board on an every 6 week basis. I find though that if I don't call or text him, he'll shuffle things around as he did and come out a week...
  10. How fast can you get your farrier to come out?

    How fast can you get your farrier to come out? My horse is shod on all fours, she is due for a trim & reset every 6 weeks. Last week she was due, farrier said he was coming out as usual. I was...
  11. Poll: I voted it depends because I've done a trial both...

    I voted it depends because I've done a trial both as a seller and a buyer but I still think its wise to try to avoid trials. As a buyer I was interested in a mare that was so far in 'the sticks'...

    To the OP I understand your question and also wonder about this as I see it a lot where I live. The reasons you've suggested are good, I think its mostly a bit of 'I don't want to spend XXX amount...

    It's been done many times but since you saved him at auction you can call him Lucky.

    What's the easiest type of horse to sell?

    In your opinion what's the easiest type of horse to sell? Imagine we're talking about nice looking, sound horses between 15.3-16.2 mare or gelding. I keep thinking if I had an older 15 yr+...
  15. In the video of your filly her coloured parts...

    In the video of your filly her coloured parts look very liver to me not black. You mentioned your mare was born black looking out of two registered chestnuts. I'd say your mare has a good chance of...

    Why are some people suggesting a lease but against a trial? Seems to me so much more can go wrong in a year than in a week. If horse is insured and paid for during a 1 week trial it seems less...

    I wouldn't move the horse to a cheaper facility,...

    I wouldn't move the horse to a cheaper facility, far away. It will make it harder to sell your horse later for only a short term saving of funds. Less buyers will make the commute out, no arena to...

    Hey SuperD you're not alone. We were not poor growing up, went on regular vacations involving flights but my interest in horses was always met with resistance to how expensive they were. I believed...

    Thanks guys, what you said makes sense. There are just a lot of people I'm around that think that lots of head flicking and tail swishing towards jumps is excitement. I know that if I was riding a...

    I'm a dressage rider and I keep my horse at a jumper barn. I haven't been here that long but I was considering taking a few jumper lessons for fun, to mix things up a bit for my horse. I'm just...

    Side reins & draw reins are completely different in their actions on the horse. Side reins provide support on the lunge similar to a riders rein while draw reins act on the poll and pull the head...

    This was the case for me when I took a horse on trial. I signed up with an insurance company, paid for the yearly amount and I had the option of a full refund for up to 3 weeks as long as no claim...

    Chefs often use kosher salt because as its already been stated it has no additives. It's also more coarsely ground than regular table salt. It is probably better for the horses but the only thing...

    I had my baby last Aug., I was back in the saddle 8 weeks later. It might have been sooner but my horse had a hoof issue so I let that clear up completely. I'm also a nursing mother and I'd say...
