    In what he is doing I would agree that less people would be worth more. He doesn't have to worry if there is going to be a large crowd of people in the arena when he gets there to work with his. That will keep him calm and in the mood to work when he gets there which will transfer to the horses. Ofcourse I am speaking hypothetically since I've never been in the situation..

    I agree with Celeste the only thing that is good about Multiple horse people is you have the stalls rented . And less people at the barn.
    But you still have all the work of Cleaning and feeding and turn outs if you do that.

    I think if you set a price that should be it. It would be different if it was a dry lot but you have to Scoop poop in a stall
    Dry lots you just scrape or we do anyway,

    Yes, I told him $350 as that was what was on the flyer he saw at the vet clinic.

    We will have to do a couple of minor additions/changes for him but neither is a big deal at all.

    Will be moving the sounding board against the wall so he has the entire arena obstacle free and adding a gate between the arena and stall area which is something I wanted to do anyway.

    I sure hope he doesn't find me here talking about him

    Hi everyone!!!!!

    Sounds like everyones getting busy. Teachers going back to school, new boarders, horses finding new homes. WOW everyones on a roll. I hope the good weather lasts and we can enjoy some cooler temps,,,FALL is almost here !

    I took my Horse, Koda, she's the Standardbred, yes if your wondeirng exracer out for a ride. Im trying to learn English riding somewhat on my own until the local instructor can get me in to her facility. So far its going ,,,,,,,, bouncy? LOL. Koda has to be cantered and cantered an then cantered some more in order to understand I only want to TROT thank you very much. Ugh. It could very well be me, she's new here (month and a half) I don't know if she uses legs, seat, hands or all of the above. So I could be sending her mixed signals in my wants and not wants. I literaly had to be in her mouth a few times just to get her to slow her canter down,,,which I might add is quite a lovely gait on her. Just like a rocking chair. Altough it turned into a gallop a few time, BUT currently I am trying to learn POSTING,,,not popping, flopping, flying,,,just posting. Which I actualy was able to do a few times but not quite the way it should have been done:-. I kept forgetting my heels, and my hands would just start moving up up up. Im used to holding reins in one hand an just going, the other hand on my leg lol. So, posting this time (2nd time) I actualy did kind of post a little bit here and there. Koda gets hot and wants ot go go go,, so in the beginning we had to forego the trotting and I had to let her get it out of her system or I would have been fighting her the whole time and it just wasnt going to do either of us any good that way. I hate to find myself in her mouth,,,but there was a good many times she was chomping the bit and throwing her head,,,,I was using a D-snaffle,,,old owner said she goes well in a tom thumb BUT I don't feel experienced enough in this discipline to use a tom thumb.

    So, tomorrows another day and hopefully Koda wont run for the hills when she sees me coming. She's all sweaty right now and cooling off in the walk-in where the breeze hits her, munching a little dry hay. Its nice down by the lake and im glad for the breeze but we both were pretty sweaty when we were done. I hope no one was watching.
