  1. How good a rider are you? Where will you be...

    How good a rider are you? Where will you be keeping the new horse? How often do you take lessons? Is your trainer a good/quiet rider?

    OTTB's are not for everyone. They come with their own...

    Thanks for your input. I am arranging a lesson with Will Faudree this week so he can give me his opinion about my young horse's future in the eventing world. (I hope he is home this week....). I...

    Can you get your contractor to come back, since he was the one that missed filling them in?

    Manure will decompose and pack down to about 1/4th its original size, so it would take you a while to...

    How much would it cost per year to have a BNR (I am not going to ride this horse myself and mess him up :) ) compete him per year? I would guess that a full schedule might be 8 - 10 events per year?...
  5. If I were a horse, I think I would much rather be...

    If I were a horse, I think I would much rather be an event horse than a jumper. Being ridden and worked in different disciplines, and turned out for a substantial part of each day, are all positive...

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I know a jumper's life. I came over here hoping to find out about an event horse's life.

    When jumpers go to shows they stay for 5 - 6 days, even if they only show...
  7. What is a general schedule of a mid level horse?

    I am trying to figure out what the work/competition schedule of an average 2* horse might be.

    How long between starts? How many starts per year?

    In between starts, would such a horse have a...

    My horse Petey is girthy. He is now 12 years old and I live by his rules when saddling.

    1. Petey HATES neoprene. Rubber shall never touch his body. He is OK with fleece or leather, but...

    If a horse warms up with weighted boots, it is harder for him to lift his legs with a 1 pound weight on each leg. So, when he goes in the ring, without the boots,it is easy for him to snatch his...

    Hunter riders tend to use the outside leg while dressage riders use the inside leg. It probably started back in the days when hunters were thrown on the inside lead while being kicked in the belly...

    OMG!!!! I just went to Go Fund Me and I am amazed and sickened. One request is $$$$ so a 560 pound man can cycle across the country. And people are giving him money!!!

    And the number of people...

    When you said that you do not like to ride out, that brought up the question of: what else does this horse get to do when he is being ridden? Do you ever get on and just have fun in a way that is...

    Wow for Contenda. I would use him just so I could name the foal: I Shoulda Beena

    Try Allbreedpedigreequery or HorseTelex. Look up the sire and the dam. If you find both, you can add your horse because you will know its breeding.

    If you are in Western Pa, the Tapit geling in Ohio is a better risk. He is for sale for $1500 and you can probably get him cheaper.

    I would certainly want to see the Tapit gelding in his...

    I would want to know what his temperament is. He has Pulpit on top and Halo on the bottom. Both are known for their bad tempers. We had a Pulpit filly and you had to take a lunge whip into the...

    I believe that you can pay a non member fee for each show. But the fee is about 1/3rd the cost of a yearly membership, so if you are planning to show in 3 or more shows, you might as well become a...

    You say that the horse has been trained to be a hunter. I disagree. High head (fighting the bit?), cranking the tail, speeding up after the jumps are all traits that are not desireable in a hunter....

    There is a 4 book (for young adults -- but I loved them) series -- one of the books is called Triple Bar and the author is Sallie something. She has written 8 books and knows horses. She is from...

    I do not know about the head bobbing, but I hate to see one horse alone. All horses need buddies --- and racehorses are inundated with horses everywhere. Possibly stress from being in such an...

    I have used different people, with different skills to "start" young horses.

    For the first 60 days I have used a really good Western trainer who starts the horse in a bosal and Western saddle. ...

    What time did this start? And why did I think it was going to start at 2? Starting at 10 is 7am west coast time -- very early for those people.
