    If you are serious about working in the horse industry, I think you should focus more on developing your skills as a horse person and a rider and less or not at all on showing. Spend those two...

    For those of you that are pushing the lease or give away options, those options are harder than you think. No one is interested in free leasing a horse to spend time and money on a horse that is...

    I agree it's a bit of an odd situation. I don't see much risk to the horse with giving the gabapentin. But, I admit I'd not be comfortable in the scenario of clients giving (or asking me to give)...

    Have a vet out to check the foal right away if it is not behaving normally. It does not sound to me like your mare is rejecting the foal, it sounds to me like it may need veterinary attention. Ask...

    It is time for your horse have a come to Jesus meeting. Biting and kicking are unacceptable. I'm sure you are aware that a well aimed kick from a horse can maim or kill a person. If you can't handle...

    I don't have a lot of advice for you. Try to re-home the horse. Give it a really good try, as in see if you can set aside a reasonable amount of money to put it in training somewhere where you think...

    French saddles are fabulous, don't get me wrong, but I have not had good luck with french brands for truly wide horses. That having been said, I think it would be perfectly reasonable to have a...

    If you use hoof polish instead of hoof oil, use the clear, not the black! The clear polish is a viable alternative at shows where there are a lot of dusty areas.

    Last thing, remember to enjoy the...

    OP, I get what you are saying, but no matter what the circumstances ultimately animal/livestock owners are liable for the actions of their animals. It doesn't matter that someone else let the horses...

    Put all the money in one account, take out X for savings, then take out similar amounts for each person's hobby/fun. My DH and I started with this, but he soon realized that he cared about other...

    Go and watch your divisions at an A show prior to your actual show date. Look closely at the details--how the horses and riders are turned out, how they enter the ring, how they handle problems in...

    I don't think your desire to see the horse is wrong. But, the problem is you really don't have any standing to act on that wish without an invitation (or permission) from the owner. Its her right not...

    Falling in love with a horse that isn't suitable for the intended purpose is a common problem. It's not discrimination. I have a beautifully bred WB that can't do the hunters, just doesn't have the...

    Lachelle, thanks for sharing the above FB post. I think it adds some clarity to the situation though I think it is plus/minus that it will calm the internet lynch mob.

    Many horses wait on trailers very comfortably and quietly for longer periods of time at trailer in shows, sometimes in the summer. Having a horse on a trailer in the summer is not inherently cruel. I...

    I think you have a very awkward situation on your hands. I agree with others that your best bet is to lock everything up that you possibly can when you are not at the barn. You also may want to just...

    There are some clients that just aren't worth working with. You don't want to make enemies or hurt people's feelings, but it's 100% ok to choose not to work with clients that are not an asset to your...

    The reason for the 30 day notice is so that another horse can be brought in to fill the stall without a lapse in payment, since most of a facility's costs are fixed. For example, I still have to pay...

    Oh, please, for heavens sake just let them know that time slot isn't available any more and fill it with another student.

    Then if they want to schedule another time you can either tell them you...

    Unless you are BNT or a local trainer with your own facility and a good reputation, or an assistant trainer at barn with a very busy lesson schedule, the average pay is probably not enough to live on.

    Why would you buy a Friesian and then clip it, what's the point? :)

    Personally if anything drafty ever comes into my barn it gets its legs clipped pronto. Even horses that fox hunt. To my eye,...
