    I could see answering this ad.

    Well, gosh. If that's what I were looking for, and I didn't care about the breed, I would call. I actually kind of welcomed the attitude. It read to me like someone proudly promoting their trail...

    Your family can't afford a horse other than the horse you have. End of story.

    Ground pole exercises?

    My horse hates 20-meter circles, and so do I, kind of, but at least I know why we do them. On the other hand, throwing in a couple ground poles here and there makes flatwork in the ring much more...
