    I don't think I have personally said that rollkur training causes the horse to have no overtrack at extended trot. However, I do object to extended trots in general being awarded very high points...

    You know, this could have been so, although I think in this case it isn't. There is nothing that says that a pro and an anti rolkkur debater cannot agree on some things, and that two people on the...

    Thanks for the well-whishes!

    If you, or anyone else interested, ever pointed out what it is that's "Illogical, irrelevant and based on fiction" I might come up with something more substantial as a reply, but noone ever does. I...

    Oh, dear, Karoline, I'm flattered (and a bit embarrassed).

    I'm happy that I have made a small but noticable difference in the whole debate. I couldn't have done it without the wholehearted support...

    Yes, if there's ground beef in the pot, the result may very well be meatballs. If there's peas it may be peasoup. It's all really a matter of what you put in there... ;-)

    Hmm, sounds like a lot of your dislike of my actions on the BB and otherwise are founded in my nationality. I think this paragraph above says a whole lot about you, and very little about me. So now...

    Or maybe I insist on passing on the fire instead of perverting it? I'm in no doubt you will say anything that is the exact opposite to what I say. But it's a free world.

    Thanks, guys!

    Unfortunately I can't remember where I got it from. Some dressage guy, but who? I think it says a lot, though.

    I personally don't believe there is. There are so many whacky ways in which one can ride and train a horse, that cause about the same flaws and errors. But I'll give you this, it takes real skill to...

    Stopping a horse from falling on its forehand or into the ground by pulling on the reins is like trying to catch oneself from falling by hanging on to ones belt.

    The rider's base of support is...

    That would be interesting. I have read that he has been trained by both Holger Schulze and Holga Finken, and I wonder if they would call him a rogue? Or did he become a bit spoiled by some buyer who...

    Broncs are pretty explosive. You even get to see people get tossed.

    And I need to promote my media in order to get people to read about rollkur so that they will visit my website (promote my media) in order to what? Circular argument. Just what is it you think I...
  15. Phiew, this took too long to write...

    Sure I am. It's a website also very much against the unnecessary use of different training gadgets, against riding the horse forcefully held up in front, against using strong untimed aids because...

    You are missing the point I'm trying to make, Nero.

    I'm concerned with dressage. Not so much the scoring, as I explained above, as I am with the training (since dressage is 95% training and 5%...

    For those who commented that Salinero looked nervous:

    Their groom (possibly ex-groom) says he's calm as a jug of milk being led about the grounds, and likes to graze and stroll. Then nerves seem...

    I don't think the issue is "cruelty" for most dressage interested. It is basically the direction that the sport/art is taking. Hey, it it was cruelty I wanted to affect I'd work for Amnesty...

    I have the larger part of the thread printed out to read on the bus home, so if anyone wants to know what it originally said, I have it in print.

    Quite possibly so, but you led the "ignorance" descriptions in the way of those who "still sit around and shake their collective fingers at big, bad rollkur Anky" and not a hint at anyone else. The...

    I honestly think he has "something coming from behind", but unfortunately not the right stuff. He IS active behind, but not active in a "stepping under, compressing the joints, taking the power...

    And who's going to decide what is "nitpicking" and what is "pointing out" and who "seems bitter" and who doesn't? If it's the same descriptions and arguments, I mean? Is it ones track reckord? If one...

    So because those who "like" what they see disagree with those who don't like what they see, that is see specific problems, which they also explain, that means that those who dislike it must be...

    You would make a little more impact if you would explain why you think so and not just do a general staement like that. Maybe you are one of those who make up the ignorance on this board.
