    If western dressage is "real" dressage, why would it need anything other than "real" dressage judges?

    Not by "poor training" or "bad hands" as you have suggested. Please read ToN's post, as she has explained it well.

    If only. I don't think there are very many that teach it any more. Besides, the general opinion on this board is that the auto release is useless or, at best, has limited advantages. I'm pretty...

    Good for you. But the question asked was not whether to ride without a jacket; it was what kind of shirt was allowed and whether to tuck it in.

    This, in spades. I would speak to whomever has the horse to be fostered and explain that this woman is not really able to care for the horses she has now, much less an additional one.

    The short answer (opinions and fashion advice aside) is yes, you can wear a black polo and no, it doesn't have to be tucked in.

    One person's tranter is another person's cantot. I think it has to do with what country you imported your draft cross warmblood from.

    And yet, you're aware of this "growing issue?" Because you've spent so much time at so many boarding barns?

    Go take care of your horse (if you really have one).

    Well, bless your heart. Did you read the responses to this thread, or just jump in with your judgment and condemnation? Many owners are "absent" but also ensure that their horses are well cared for.

    1878 Ohio. It's doubtful that whoever wrote that report was even aware of selective breeding occurring in Europe at the time. I'm afraid you're going to have to do better.
