    As a trainer with a small lesson program, I struggle with this as well, particularly the issue of showing off the property. We would like to provide as many opportunities to our students as possible....

    Thank you all for the suggestions. I don't have any pictures of her back but I will try and remember to take some. The last time I purchased a saddle, the options were few as to what would fit the...

    I don't think she's got a huge shoulder, but it's certainly bigger than my TBs. She's round but not terribly so--never had any issues with the saddle rolling or anything. She has a small wither. I'm...
  8. Jump saddle suggestions for a QH? pic added

    Looking for recommendations/suggestions for an average-shaped QH. Rider needs a pretty forward flap due to a long femur. Current saddle is an 18" forward flap Frank Baines Reflex that is way too...

    Thanks! I understand completely the affordability issue. I grew up taking one lesson a week--no leasing, owning or showing--because my parents could not afford it.

    I just struggle to explain to...
  10. From lessoning to leasing/owning--looking for insight from trainers, parents, etc.

    I am looking for different perspectives on transitioning the one/twice a week lesson rider into leasing or horse ownership.

    As a trainer with a small lesson program, I am limited to what I can do...

    I have a freakishly long thigh according to my saddle fitter. I also had a very hard to fit TB gelding. I bought a custom Frank Baines Reflex for $3,200. Forward flap, 18', wool flocked, etc. Love...

    Keep upping the amount of Ace. Some horses will develop a tolerance and you will need to increase it as you go along. You might also need more depending on the weather, the time of day, amount of...

    Camelot Farm in Oswego does a schooling show series over the winter.

    blame the champagne--yes, the more I read about neck arthritis, the more I question if that could not be the root of all of her issues. The arthritis was disclosed prior to my purchasing the mare...

    We did decide to start Pentosan a few weeks ago but.....can't get it now. I do have access to vets who do chiro and acupuncture, so those are options.

    I would LOVE to contact her breeder but I...

    bornfreenowexpensive--thanks for sharing your experiences. I am currently lucky enough to be in a private boarding situation where we can manage the mare to her liking, which we have been doing.

    Thank you, Blugal, for the thoughtful response.

    Honestly, I feel like I have not had much of a chance to build a relationship with this horse. I only owned her for 3 months before the first...
  21. cross post from Horse Care: Young TB with two bad tendons plus other issues....WWYD?

    In August 2012 I purchased an unraced 5 yr old TB mare. Mare had history of EPM and mild neck arthritis but was perfect otherwise, so it was a calculated risk. She was purchased to be my lower-level...

    Thank you all for the input. Most of the scenarios I listed were with school horses in mind. I have been a part-time instructor for many years and have very rarely issued a refund or not charged for...
  24. Lesson refunds/not charging for lessons--when?

    Questions for trainers/instructors/BMs--on what, if any, occasions do you not charge a client for a lesson? Or offer a refund?

    I am thinking of situations like:

    I was up at Lamplight yesterday. They have completely dug out the entire GP ring to the base. I am told they are starting over with the footing in that ring? Apparently it was very, very deep last...
