    It's a riders decision to run their horses around past their comfort level. Galloping around, not using your eye, hoping to survive - not how the pros should act. I don't really think it's fair to...

    You don't really want to rush a horse off the ground. A horse that does this sort of 'add' may be lacking confidence, and/or direction, so a sudden
