    Where have I been? Hmm not hanging out on the internet recently.

    The advice given is disgraceful.

    The horse looks like it needs schooling. A six year old, with a kid. Good project. ...

    The inaugural PG Championship was a mess, from ineligible winners, to eligible winners that gamed the system to remain so.

    I expected to see some actions taken, but didn't think it would be...

    The thief herself found you from a list you shared? And offered to sell the saddles to you?

    That's bold.

    What does "ruled out vet work. SOUND' mean?

    A horse doesn't have to limp to have a veterinary problem.

    Wouldn't that depend on the age of the horse and how far along it was to begin with?

    You're uncomfortable because you realize that you aren't quite ready for what you propose doing.

    Chances are that if your current trainer set you up in this job, she won't be shocked to find you...

    If this is a suitable horse (doesn't sound like the trainer had input there) why is kid only riding once per week? Shouldn't kid ride 4-5 times per week? After 2 years, you'd think the trainer...

    Two years of being paid below market rates to do a Devon-worthy job, then be expected to repeatedly 'fix' a horse that a kid that can't learn not to mess up (again) and I would be pretty done as a...

    Assuming the horse will be in a program with an experienced trainer who knows the horse or can figure him out, it's puzzling that you would ask strangers on the internet this question.

    Aren't there horse shows in Wellington practically all the time?

    Might be a better idea to go to one of them and approach one of the trainers there rather than ask this question of strangers on...

    Sounds like you are more spooked than your horse is.

    And I don't blame you--when they panic, it can be very frightening. Makes you appreciate the extent to which they cooperate with us, doesn't...

    Have you looked into college riding programs?

    Will you go for a career with horses or a peripheral career in the industry?

    You've improved a lot! Your pony is cute, honest when in familiar surroundings, and frankly, a bit tame for you now!

    Where do you want your riding to go from here?

    I guess this thread will go quite a while with posters addressing the OP's question about being reasonable or not, which, is fair enough, as that's the question asked.

    Horses overjump for the reasons stated by the last two posters.

    Owners who habitually trot jumps and let their horses 'leave out a few steps' are probably overmounted; if the trainer can't come...

    As for "German" vs. "American" style--there is little to choose at the top levels--Germans have become more American and Americans have become more German. It's more a question of personal styles,...

    FOUR pages?

    Goodness.

    Competition requires a certain mind-set in addition to the skill required at whatever level of riding.

    Leave them home.

    If you are that scared of the 'gum'mint' tracking your horses, don't bother recording them and definitely don't try to compete them.
