    I believe that Hilltop is holding an educational program in March. It's aimed at breeders, but even if you are buying a warmblood for performance, it is important to understand the breeding goals of...

    Thanks for the explanatory post GLR. I absolutely understand that therapeutic riding programs need good moving, sound, and tolerant horses to have a successful program. I have no doubt that you get...

    I have several mares who start shedding on the winter solstice. Never fails. Fortunately they have lots of hair.

    First off, filing a complaint with the state licensing board is free. You don't need a lawyer to do it. Second, why are you filing in the state where the broker is located? If the carrier is...

    The Camargue region of France is a huge western riding area. Many years ago Mr. IF and I went on a riding vacation there. We rode Western and even helped with the herding of fighting bulls.

    Yeah, the part about NO lease. I would never engage in a rental without a lease, even if the term is month to month. The lease protects both landlord and tenant. I would run from this arrangement...

    Thanks everyone for the positive comments. I am willing to work with therapy centers to a point. But if the model is "free with a long trial" then I think the therapy center needs to look more...

    Horses for Therapeutic Riding Programs

    I am involved with a breed that has had success with therapeutic riding programs. I have sold some horses (my own breeding and consignments) to therapy programs within the US and internationally. ...
  9. I don't like payment to be predicated on a sale...

    I don't like payment to be predicated on a sale or a lease. That creates a conflict of interest for the trainer who doesn't get paid unless you lease or buy. Just come to an agreement on a flat...

    We built these feeders for round bales, although squares work fine in them. I like the fact they are covered. We can move the feeder around with a tractor. Mr. IF and IF Jr. built the feeders...

    Not to hijack, but the CDCTA Online Auction has a pair of 4-day Rolex tickets for sale. No bids yet and 16 days to go on the auction. We start the bidding at 1/3 value, so there is a bargain...

    Well if anyone wants a private lesson with this clinician on her farm, she very kindly donated one to the CDCTA Online Auction. The auction is about 16 days from closing and the leading bid is $35...

    I agree that adjudicated claims go on your credit report, but I consider the likelihood of adjudication very small. One can settle before the case is ever heard. I have engaged in arbitration in a...

    With climate change and the seemingly increased number and strength of hurricanes, I would not retire to a coastal area with a horse. Maybe without one because my DH and I are more easily moved out...

    The amount of money is fairly minor -- one month of board -- (and yes I appreciate that it could be a major amount for the OP). Court costs IF the trainer goes the small claims route are minor and...

    So HH, are you suggesting that the OP just stay put and find out if an eviction is really going to happen? I think it would be foolish to insert yourself into 3rd party drama. I would leave. The...

    I think some farms and subdivisions can get along, but it takes an effort by both sides just as it does with any neighbor. Escalating the disagreement does very little to help matters. In your...

    There is nothing wrong with a seller to be concerned with a buyer's ability to afford a horse's upkeep. I try to be sure that every horse I sell goes to a suitable home. However, life happens and...

    Bumping Hilltop for a bit. They are having a great clinic, but our auction ends 3 weeks before their clinic, so I am hoping they can take turns. CDCTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entirely run by...

    Standing water under the house is a very bad thing. Obviously the seller is not motivated to sell and solve the repair issues.

    When we looked for our farm, we probably made offers on 4...
