    A lot I think depends on the level of the rider. I really do not have a regular trainer the way many here are describing. Wish I did but my work schedule makes it very hard for me. I do have...

    I think this is good advice for people who only own one horse and do not buy often. But when looking at a prospect (green or fresh of the track), pretty much every thing about the horse in front of...

    He's 3 and immature. I've had two that bolted when getting off and several that were tough to get on. A good grounds person is critical. For now. Go back to ground work and I would end on a good...

    You have the cost to fly the horse and related expenses, cost to fly and house rider and groom, and lots of other expenses I'm probably not thinking of. I know 3 people recently who went and have...

    X-rays of feet ok I would. I've been able to manage ulcers easily. And often once you fix that, their feet improve--it just takes time. I also have a very good farrier.

    I do not believe in "heart" horses......but I do believe that there are horses you just click with more. It has nothing to do with their looks or talent. In the end, if you have to sell one...you...

    I have to say I sort of like the serpent with the person hanging out of its mouth....and the moose is a good looking jump.

    oops. Sorry about that! Yes, it was the Paralympics! Do they hold them always following the Olympics? It made sense to use the already set up venues.

    I got a lovely ticket in London when I was in one of those lanes without realizing it......it was after the Olympics but during the Special Olympics. They mailed me the ticket so I think the...

    Just because this thread came up...wonder who the OP chose?

    I just bred my large Hanovarian mare to Persiflage. No...his results with his rider are no steller but from those that know the horse...

    Would Seneca be a better move up? (I think Olney or FairHill would as their ditches/Trakheners are not bad but may be too soon for you).

    Surefire's Training is pretty straight forward. The ditch...

    I'm less heat tolerant than my horse.....but in the heat and humidity it is really no different than any other time of year....you have to watch your horse and his response.

    Agreed...there are probably more than 2.....just not EVERY top rider as indicated by the poster. I'd say that even fewer top riders care that much other than they want to win EVERYTHING anyway.
