WHo said anyhting about pinty party? I'm talking on just regular threads like that Horse Lunging one you posted on. Last time I checked that wasn't a pity party thread, and also when I checked, people that ranted need some symphathy.

Are you kidding? In the dressage world, 12 years old is in their prime! If a 12 year old horse is moving like he's 'old' then something is very wrong. There are horses in their early 20s who are still showing with no trouble at all.

As for the advice thing, it doesn't really bother me. I know I'm not perfect and that I can make mistakes subconsciously, so I actually find it nice to have outside eyes telling me what I should be doing.

Everybody I know says 10 is the prime time to get a horse if you want one that's already trained. You still have lots of years left, and they are in their prime. If we go by that then all the 25-30(something) horses at the barn I work at are being treated bad by being ridden. It's pretty funny though because some of the older horses are more sound than some young ones I've seen.

LOL Kevin, you crack me up :)

Back on topic - I must be the She Devil in the Equestrian World than. Nelson is 20, turning 21 and we're still training, riding, and preparing to compete this season in the world of Eventing.

I am always hearing people around me telling me to retire him, I just smile and say "Oh yeah? Well, I'll wait for him to tell me, thanks though"

Sweetie, any time I say that, I'm either teasing, or I'm meaning something else entirely. Usually, I'm comparing his age to Rainy's- his 12 years to her 5 make him seem REALLY old to me! But I'm completely joking otherwise, and I sincerely hope I didn't hurt your feelings. If I did, I'm sorry, and I'll try my best not to say it anymore!

Have you ever heard of Elmer Bandit? He rode until the year he died. I was able to meet him at a ride I attended. I can't imagine what people would have to say about that one.
