    I have one of the Magic Trucks - a '99 7.3 PSD, long bed and super cab. It would pull the trailer you describe without even noticing it was hooked up ;) But I think you'd be fine with a short bed,...

    I started my horse in dressage when he was about 15 ;)

    In fairness, he was not a greenie at the time; he had been my equitation horse, then my hunter and later my jumper for years. However, he...

    I would sell it. Trends in saddles come and go, and they don't tend to gain in value as they age. Additionally, the fit is not exactly perfect for you if you struggle to get your leg underneath you...

    Seems like a lot of mid priced tack gets sold pretty fast on the various FB tack trading groups. You might consider that as well :)

    Be aware that many sellers will not entertain a trial period. It can represent a significant risk for the seller, after all... the horse can be hurt, or have a bad experience, etc.

    Most professionals have set fees - typically 10-15% - that they charge clients either buying or selling. FWIW, I have seen this included in documents like boarding contracts - where people gloss...

    I know it is not popular but I would not jump this horse over anything larger than a ground pole until you get him truly broke on the flat. That means he will listen to your seat as well as your leg...

    I think your perception of the shared risk in a lease is going to be your biggest obstacle in finding a lease arrangement.

    You keep saying, "that's what insurance is for," without seeming to...

    Absolutely agree with this.

    At that level, to win you have to run like a bat out of Hades and the winners quite often are not the most talented, they are the ones who have horses with the best...

    I have a couple pair of DeNiro boots (purchased through Cavallo Couture) that I got for daily use and occasional showing. They are lovely and were very easy to break in, but I...

    You will sell this horse on the merits of its show record, I think. You aren't going to market it as a prospect, but as a proven show horse. If you are marketing to adult ladies, then you need a...
