The only reason that I could think of for having a private treaty for a gelding woule be buy/sell or leaser/leasee.

Private treaty for a gelding may simply mean you don't want to advertise the price, or that the price may be different depending how many professionials/commisions are involved, or that the price may be different depending on other details of the contract. Lots of good reasons for a highly in demand horse to be sold private treaty.

As for this one:

Does anybody know what it is called when a horse is pulling a carriage (or hearse or whatnot--anything) and the driver is sitting on the horse rather than on the carriage or whatever?
I think the answer is pillion, or riding pillion.

Here's an image of bones of the lower forelimb.

Equine forelimb anatomy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are three phalangeal bones; P1 or long pastern bone is closest to the fetlock and is what you call the pastern, P2 or short pastern bone ends just inside the hoof capsule where it joins P3, along with the navicular bone.

It's really amazing when you think about how horses evolved. I can't imagine carrying my weight on my middle fingers and toes. (I guess that's because we didn't evolve that way =) )

Citiot = a person from the city that thinks sand is horse poo and they don't want to get it on their designer high heeled shoes that they wore to go riding because they were told to wear a boot with a heel to go for a trail ride....... :[
Legend, LikeaTB and WIRider like this.

This might be a tough one, lol: Does anybody know what it is called when a horse is pulling a carriage (or hearse or whatnot--anything) and the driver is sitting on the horse rather than on the carriage or whatever?

In England it is called, Postillion.

This is probably one of the greatest things I've ever heard. We always just called them City Slickers (yes, we stole it from the movie), but I like this much better.

What are "sliders" when refering to rear shoes? Are they a cheat or a training tool? What health risks are there when using them on your horse?

Ok, I have one that nobody can seem to solve for me anytime I ask. Maybe there is some racetrack terminology savvy horse people here.

Tootsie Roll? ( no, not the candy) the only thing I know is that it refers to the look of a fit/developed group of muscles or muscle of a racehorse that you should look for if you are betting.

Anybody know where this muscle is located, what it looks like?

Maybe they DO know and they don't want to tell because now they are rich because of it
