    +1. Denny's page is an echo chamber of his own views, and only his views, where he conveniently forgets just how hard eventing was on horses in his heyday. Things could certainly be better now, but I...

    She has a great canter, and when she isn't pulling and fussing to the jump, she actually jumps fairly slow off the ground with good knees. When the balance and distance are there, I can really see...

    No- depends on whether the judges think the rail was due to the riding. The rest of the trip was so much better than anyone else I've seen, so they may overlook it.

    Just because someone is the horse show farrier at the big shows doesn't actually make them a good farrier... doesn't take all that much skill to tack shoes back on, and the really good farriers...
