I didn't know what to call this thread, but the explanation will answer the why. In late June or early July of last year, one of my girls purchased a new horse. Green broke 3 year old. She went to the trainers and all things turned out well. That trainer moved to Texas, so horse came home for a while. Found new trainer, things are working out well, until the trainers wife drops a bombshell. At least daughter thinks it is, and I tend to agree. This is it - all training horses that are going to shows MUST have the same brand, and color of sheets, blankets, bell boots, halters, leads and stall door storage. First of all, think of the cost, she had already purchased new, in various colors, depending on sale price, and now is being required to purchase yet again. Thoughts? Good idea, not good idea?
