    Holy moly, either you're me, or I'm you. Same thing on both of these. Ditto 100% the jumps, even leaving a specified space between jump & rail, and leaving one end of the ring jump-less. Still the...

    That's the way I was taught to dismount in my early riding program, decades ago. Was told it was to avoid any chance of having a foot slip through the stirrup. It can sting the feet especially in...

    OP, I read between the lines ... perhaps you are feeling very deeply you would rather be a horse pro - maybe a rider or a BO/BM - than continue your current career? You find far more inspiration in...

    The most unprofessional trainer remark I can think of was directed to a trainer's audience of students while they were railbirding at a local h/j show. A young teenager who was not her student was...

    Be chatty and tell everyone about his cancer - and finish by saying with a happy flourish "but here he is, alive and well and competing". They will tell everyone else. I'll bet he has his own fan...

    I am so sorry you are in this situation - it sucks, after all your careful plans to do what's best for your horse(s). It is hard not to feel like it is an overreaction, and/or will be perceived as...

    If there is any silver lining ... the kid was exposed to a better standard of horse care, through you. And a more sensible approach to everything she was doing. That can have a way of sticking, for...

    The OP has a written contract saying she has 75% ownership. She decides. The 25% share does not overrule her decision.

    Only in the horse world can this situation go upside down to the point where...

    You have done so much for this horse - you have been there for him day after day. Nothing to feel guilty about. Very big hugs.

    If this can only end one way, I would say please don't wait until he...

    I would say this ... make reasons other than the friends the primary reasons for the move. The friends are a great side benefit.

    No you don't.

    Regardless, it's doubtful they would pursue you legally. You can do pretty much as you wish. :)

    But you have the rights here.

    75% > 25%
