    The situational advice you've gotten thus far is spot on. I agree on not backing out at the last minute. I also agree with saying no in the future. "No." is a complete sentence. You don't need to...

    Let's see how many people I can offend with this post. ;)

    My husband recently informed me that he's not so hip to us buying an acreage (something we had been planning on for years) because he's...

    Bottom line, a veterinarian's script solves this problem. If a vet prescribes it, you give it. I don't see how she'd get ahold of gaba w/o a script. And I can't believe any vet would script it out...

    Lots of options. Many training barns host their own shows and you could ride a lesson horse. You could try to half lease a horse. You could get in with a trainer and apprentice a bit and likely...

    OP, I'm sorry this was so stressful. As you've learned the rabies vaccine policy in most states is pretty unforgiving. And with good cause since there is no cure for rabies and it is zoonotic.

    Also, OP...if you could kindly use paragraphs, I think that would really help you get more replies. It's very challenging to read when it's in a block.

    OP, I do think you're being silly. Either pack up the jumps or leave them. But how would you be liable for anything? I mean really?

    I have boarded at many barns and brought my own standards and...
