You are both correct; my comments on the OTTB were not written very clearly, which is what happens when one writes a blog early in the morning! As a teacher of MANY event riders from the grassroots to the 4* level, I deeply, deeply love the Thoroughbred horse, and I absolutely think they are phenomenal athletes and exceptional partners for riders at all levels of sport. I wrote this blog from a contemporary international dressage perspective, where the Thoroughbred is a rare bird. But that doesn't mean for one second that I have anything other than a deep love and respect for them! My apologies for making it seem that anything other than that was the case.
Thanks for reading!
