    I was taught that all straps should face backwards so they don't get caught up in bushes etc out hunting. Flash straps therefore face down and the buckle is between the nostrils and the mouth where...

    The continental style of warmblood is all about 'submission' which is the horse doing absolutely what it is told, down to where to put its every footfall. 'Partnership' works far better with horses...
