    My absolute favorite is the people who
    1.) can't afford lessons or prorides, or even a decent place to board
    but
    2.) have multiple horses.

    For Christ's sake just sell one of the horses and use...

    I don't actually care about grooming the horse when I try it. When I try it I want to know can it do the job I want it to do. Is it the right type, is it a good mover, does it have a nice brain to...

    Those are the rules for rated dressage shows, but schooling shows make their own rules. Some are more formal than others.

    People really think that a two horse with an open back (butt bar up), the side windows open and the escape doors open is hot like a car with the windows rolled up?

    I am currently at a high level h/j barn where the apparent uniform is pikeurs and EIS shirts. All of the clients wear this. All of the trainers. (When off the horse the shoe of choice is Sperrys.)

    The clip is for draw reins, not martingales, although imo it is better to attach drawreins to the girth under the saddle flap if you are going to use them.

    Love the spring analogy.

    I often just tell student to shorten their horse's step.
    "Shorten the step, almost walk"

    A student who is told to do this will
    1.) pull on the reins
    2.) add leg to...

    I have lost all faith in the ability of the paying client to ascertain whether their trainer is any good or not. This is because I have physically watched people continue to train with and throw...

    My understanding is that if you deduct expenses annually, the gain is taxed as ordinary income at the higher rate.

    For the lower capital gains rate you have to 1.) keep the horse for whatever...
