Very correct.

The person receiving the horse is you and you are getting the horse on loan.

But whatever term you use and I will stick to the way I know I would not get me fired from my job thanks. I deal with financing and who gives out the loan and who receives it, so is very very important. The borrower(receiver) is not "loaning".

The OP states they have 11 years experience. So did they start that 11 year count from age 3 or later..hard to say. My point here is that most people know what a splint is, usually long before they have "11 years experience" and I don't think that ...

A this person has any idea what they want to do with this horse.
B The horse is recovering for a splint probably caused but being broke at a too young age so what they can do under saddle is limited.
C in hand showing as they were asking on another thread may be breed related...we don't know if it is registered.

Some form of showmanship? If they even have those classes over in the UK.

Under breed classes, are geldings even allowed to show after 3--here they are not.

She needs to read some books on dressage as was suggested and then maybe ask some questions.

Good old america :) Us and our oh-so-great terminology! LOL.

The well-known saying “chestnut mare, beware!” is not completely without foundation. Some go further and add “chestnut Thoroughbred mare, beware!”

you do that! the financial world in the US and the horsey world in the UK obviously very different places and since the financial world has royal screwed us over I'll stick to what I know of the horsey world over here which is clearly more then you do.

No such thing as showmanship over here and yes geldings over 4 can enter breed classes, they generaly either have thier own class or go in with the barren mares. They can also do generic inhand classes like sports horse, foriegn breeds, horse over 14.2hh, potential driving horse, some shows even have best gelding classes! At local level no one will ask if it is registered, at county level, well the splint will rule him out of that anyway but in the sports horse class or the foriegn breed classes it will state if they require papers or not.

The horse will be registered of some sort. In the Uk all horses have to be passported within 6 months of birth or upon weaning which ever is first. Just depends who it is registered with.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Actually Faye's vest recollection only goes so far...before vests they were Libery Bodices.

Lol, how funny. I knew vests but never heard of liberty bodices. I love the UK words vs. US, I mix things up allll the time.

A good dressage trainer is a must!!! If you don't know how to do dressage and want to teach a horse how would you be able to do that???? I think it was a very strange question in the 1st place!!!

actualy the vest came before the liberty bodice and were often worn underneath.
For women the vest was derived from the silk slip of regency times.

Oh and whilst you may not be in the US I do know you are the other side of the pond to the UK. Either way the term loaning is correct as it was used regarding horses in the UK. It may not be in finance but it is correct in the equine world.

Really because the Liberty Bodice was in use from the end of WW 1 to about the end of WW 2 1945 mostly by girls. They pretty well stopped after that.Vests tended to be more worn my boys up to about the 50's.

My mom was given some very strange looks when she asked for the bodice when she immigrated.

Just a note here

Just as the Scottish are NOT English, the Canadians are NOT American and usually resent the "oh well you are all the same" attitude that seems to come from both sides of the pond.

The UK and US have different terminology. So what? It's like the word "thong" having very different meanings in Australia and America
