Okay. I will, since you couldn't just drop it.
I'm trying to lease my pony because I'm no longer able to pay for all my animals. I want him to go somewhere, where he would have more attention payed to him. I have divorced parents, & I can't get out to see him every day. He needs to live in a place where he's shown, or I'd feel like I'm wasting him. I have no way of transporting him to shows (I can't drive, no one will trailer him), no show tack, I can't afford continious lessons. I have a hard time, my parents bit off more then they could chew when we got 4 horses on our little rinky dink property. I've rebroken him, gotten him calm, taught him ground manners, etc. I also have another "problem pony" I have to work with. It's hard, I have no ring (in the process of being built), and have to make do with the things I'm provided with.

The one & only thing I can do is ride. Everyone sees it. I feel like I could teach people the basics once I have my ring this spring.

Just so you know it is illegal to train people with out a licence or proper insurance. Just some thing to think about.

Thank you for an honest answer, and not avoiding what is obviously a sore topic for you. It sucks when you get in over your head (or your parents, in this case), but keep in mind that no horse NEEDS to be shown or it is 'wasted'. Even a 50k imported warmblood is happy being a backyard horse for awhile if given a chance. It's obvious you love your pony and want to do right by him, so don't feel like he'd be better with anyone else.

I know you want to rush out and teach people, but sometimes when you're young it really isn't the best idea without constant guidance. Is there anyway you can have your coach mentor you on her property, using her facilities and horses? That way you would be under her insurance (which is something you NEED to have if you are running a riding school, no matter the size, out of your own barn)?

Nope, lol. I've hosted trail rides on my farm, everyone signs a liability wavier. I wouldn't have a big "school". Two or three students?

You saw my pictures, I have a dirt pasture. I hate seeing my beautiful baby in it when it's mud & muck. He deserves better.

You NEED insurance if you are running a business. If one of your students (clients) comes off and gets hurt, you can be sued. Well, your parents can be. You could lose everything over $15. Liability waivers aren't worth the paper they're printed on if you don't have the insurance to back it up.

I board my horse at a gorgeous barn - guess what? She's spent most of this fall in mud and muck, that comes with owning horses. You can't turn them out on grass when it's wet, they'll turn that into muck quick.

Very much true. Plus, if you are teaching young kids, most parents with a brain are going to ask to see proof of insurance..

If a student gets hurt because of your negligence(and trust me, they'll try to twist it that way), the liability waiver is useless, and you'll be paying for their medical expenses.
