    I love that! That would be great in a schooling barn! Each horse has a saddle and brushes all neatly stored together!

    Not just rhythmic. You can be rhythmic and be loping on a loose rein on the forehand. A quality canter (uphill, adjustable, and infront of the leg) makes finding the jumps and getting to the base...
