    This system may work for people who show a lot, but for people like me, who don't, it will create a false impression that I am somehow an inferior rider. And I especially see it being an unfair...

    Yea, not looking forward to that half 10m counter canter in 4/3! I think the new 4/3 will give me even more motivation to get to PSG! I liked the old 4/1. I thought it rode very well.

    Yes, my homebreds have been some of the best horses I've ever owned - mainly because they have such can-do attitudes about the work.

    I am nerdy enough that I actually write down goals each year for each of my three horses. I do not always achieve all of my goals, but it helps to focus. As someone said, a goal not written down is...
