    That would be new to me, I've never heard of leg warmers for a horse. Are you sure she didn't say a bit warmer??

    Talking ?

    And, why is your trainer suggesting you buy items for a horse you're only half leasing that belongs to her? If he needs sports medicine boots or polos or something, it seems like she should buy them.

    Maybe she was suggesting something for you to keep your legs warm? Like a quarter sheet?? Or leggings to go under your half chaps to prevent rubs?

    Default This doesn't answer your question, but do you...

    realize that when you state, like in you signature line, "In Memory of..." that it is understood that you are generally referring to someone or something that has died? Did you really have one horse that lived for one year and another for two years?

    You're in GA...it won't get cold enough there for anything like a quarter sheet or that really! Also, I think maybe the instructor sees someone who is willing to blow money on anything horse related and is taking advantage of it so one of her schoolies gets stuff that he needs? Might be true... unless it's something for the rider...but really I have no clue by the description.

    pumpkin was a mini who lived for 3 years and shalom was only a yearling (both NOT my horses). That is what my trainer told my mom. My mom probably misheard it since she is not a horse person.

    Awww, come on!! lol I live where the wind chill can get down to -20 on exceptionally nasty days I survive just fine riding out in all weather. And oh, the weather can change drastically in about 15 minutes too...I'm in the mountains.

    Maybe quilted wraps and standing bandages? I could see how those could get misread as "leg warmers" (since you're wrapping a "quilt" around the leg and all) by a non-horse person. Don't really know why Luke would need them at the moment, but it's a possibility.

    And, I'll freely admit to using a quarter sheet in SC. I blamed it on my bodyclipped and somewhat wimpy TB, but really... I was cold. No harm in that.

    But, generally when you lease a horse they supply most everything if it's a lesson program. You shouldn't have to buy things for him, which is why people have been telling you that all along.

    I'm going to echo what others have said -- why does your trainer want you to buy "Tack" items for a horse (in a lesson barn) that you're only half-leasing? Sports med boots aren't cheap -- you're looking at $60-70 if you buy new ones. If it's the barn horse -- and he really *NEEDS* them, then the barn should buy them.

    Also, you should ask your trainer WHY Luke needs the boots. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but aren't you doing just W/T lessons with some cantering? Doesn't sound like you're doing much that would require the extra protection from sports med boots. If he has some sort of physical condition requiring the use of boots, then the barn should provide them...

    Depends on the term of the lease agreement. When I leased a horse from my trainer, I bought a lot of equipment for him- bandages, a good winter blanket, a new halter when he destroyed his old one. The way I see it, he was my horse for the year, thus his expenses were my responsibility. However, the only thing that remained with that horse when my lease was up was the halter. The polo bandages are mine and the blanket is mine.

    Without knowing the terms of IHB's lease, I don't think we can make a generalization that says she shouldn't purchase things for this horse.

    When I saw "leg warmers", I thought polo bandages. (Some of our little kids call them "pony socks.") But SMBs makes sense too!

    Why does your trainer not want your horse to go in polos?
