    OP, you are getting GREAT advice here.
    I think the theme, "Here's what I did" is an excellent approach. You also need to paint a very clear picture of the other team riders - so that the mom gets...

    I think your friend is doing the right thing. She asked, and the BO told her he was not going to change the hours. If I were her, I would leave right away. Done.

    @Vxf11: yes, it is really fair. It is using facts. It is using facts and results to combat opinion and hyperbole. Nothing could be more fair.

    Wow Kristinav, how things change... When I was a teenager, KC had several good H/J trainers and quite a lot of riders. We'd see a bunch of them at shows in Oklahoma and other venues all around that...

    As a teenager, I kept my own horse in suburbia at someone else's house nearby. I did everything myself. As a working adult, with small children, I would NOT do this.

    A lot depends on where...

    Hey MVP, stand your ground! And BTW, from my experience, kids are WAY more attentive to adults who are in authority, in control of something the kids want, and not their parents, than they are of...

    What Lucassb said.
    I went to school to become an engineer, so I would be able to afford my hobby :). I rode a little, when I was interning, but not during the school year.
    I needed to give full...

    I have a Brup, 2001 model. IMHO, I would l fix the Brup. You sound confident in the quality of the repairs and have good experience with this trailer. Sounds like you have a not-to-exceed...

    Right - as long as there is no money changing hands, all those activities are fine. You can coach, train, ride other people's horses... As long as you are not being paid for these activities,...

    My gray mare was also a redhead at birth. I guess that is the key to her personality - she's really a chesnut mare in disguise!

    If I were running these big events, I would cater to this super wealthy clientele, and yes, forget the rest of us. I would make this sport super selective and attract ultra wealthy people. ...

    Boarded at a place which used a tractor to feed. BEST training ever! now our horses LOVE the sound and sight of the tractor during arena drag at shows :). If your horse is food-motivated, this kind...

    I'd guess that most of the 8 year olds showing have parents who are pretty formidable and resourceful.

    The Parents are not...

    My mare is 24, and has been only lightly used her whole life.

    Hi OP -
    I've heard that jumping is not the biggest problem for arena footing - barrel racing and lunging (same small area all the time) create bigger issues. Might want to rethink the jumping...

    Hi Bowtechdude,
