    Caveat: I don't know the horse, boarder, vet or barn owner, so no idea if this is actually applicable, but is just an FYI from my own experience.

    What time of day do you ride/how many days during the week?

    It varies; generally speaking, I ride when I have the time. In summer, it's usually either early in the morning or in the last couple of...

    A lot will depend on whether you live in one of the fence-in counties in VA or in a fence-out county. If the former, the horse owner is generally considered liable for any damage incurred during an...

    Do you have a local trainer you can ask? The problem with internet advice for this sort of thing is that even very skilled people who might actually be able to help will only be able to offer rather...

    I think you'll find views here pretty consistent; it's the context of the sale that you have to consider.

    The things I look for: Does the trainer have a show record in your discipline? A good record? A good record repeated on several horses? If scores are poor, is there a good reason (e.g., working...

    I'm sure her attorney will give her good advice. I agree with the other posters; I've seen this before. She should NOT "give up" anything. Custody, division of assets, etc. should be negotiated with...

    I agree with candyappy and Manahmanah; I think the BM's response was clear, cordial and businesslike. Nothing written would put me off of boarding at a facility run by this person based on that note.

    The hospital should have a patient advocate. Call and set up a meeting; that person should be able to go to bat for you and help you get the bill reduced.

    When I have half-leased out one of my horses, the lease specified that the owner (me) would not exercise the horse on the leaser's days. I also used an addendum to assign days to the leaser. We would...

    Thanks for the product review, Sobriska! SC is not much better than FL for the hot and muggy, and I've been wondering if any of those cooling vests would be worthwhile.

    Definitely. I'd imagine that the rare Fjeral Fjord would command a greater price tag than a regular old domestic one. :winkgrin:

    While all the above suggestions are great and definitely have a place in a BM's CE plan, I'll suggest a bit of a different approach. IME, many if not most BMs are pretty savvy on the horsecare side...

    Crossing the billets can act a bit like a foregirth, useful for saddles that "climb" up the withers or, as mentioned, those that rock back and forth. In the latter case, I'd assume the crossing is a...
