    I'm late to this. I think so many love controversy and possible scandal. Many have grown tired of soap operas. What we see here is the beginning of the equine competition reality shows.

    So,...

    TON: I don't have a problem with it, either. I have a problem with one horseman publicly, scathingly raking another rider over the coals for riding in a certain manner and then riding the way the...

    Oh, wait, wait, "KKK of Dressage." Are we lynching Anky and Sjef now, or is it just Anky? Let me get a torch!

    Laying eggs on horses' butts is nothing. After I rollkur mine, I can fry the damn...

    Oh my. I saw this on FB and I scurried over here for the first time in quite a while. I'm going out for an entire case of wine to go with the whine I'm expecting this thread to produce.

    ferd, I thought I explained that via FB? But, yes, that move is still in the process. Takes a while.

    Getting back to the topic and the horse I discussed above. Sometimes, when a horse is btv,...

    One other thing. I don't think people keep using a method if it does NOT work. And I don't think these top riders some are so quick to criticize have so little regard for their horses.

    Some say...

    I'm a "small" rider. Now, I sit the trot really well. But before I learned how to do it, I feel really bad for some of the horses I rode. Weight does not necessarily dictate "gentle" riding.

    ferd01, can you imagine the outrage if there were stewards monitoring the warm-up for the kind of riding you mentioned in your above post? Oh my. :eek::lol:

    lol. I'll take a mimosa.

    You know what I think those riders should do? Boycott all competition for a month. LOL. Leave the competing to those who know better! :eek:

    If you're paying for it, you can get whatever wine you please. I'll bring the chocolates and cheese.

    Don, I suspect you ride quite "tactfully." Just don't let anyone take pictures or, worse,...

    This might require one of those huge bottles of wine. So, people go around making videos of warm-ups to scrutinize and find fault with those getting top scores?

    Chocolate, too, please.

    "Conversate"

    I am hearing educated people say "we need to conversate." I don't "conversate" with others, I "converse." I've heard it used on news programs and seen it in print.

    Drives me nuts.

    I have a Corlandus. It was custom for one horse but I've used it on numerous horses. Most recently, a PRE. Won't work on all body types, but it wasn't meant to. I love this saddle. Worth every...

    A case may not quite cut it. Check out the Maclain Ward thread in Jumpers. Apparently, they're just rollkurring all over the place. In the jumper warm-ups, too. LOL. All these top riders abusing...

    I've seen the practice used well. By someone very close to me, in both jumping and dressage.

    I don't like to see good people being called (even in a round-about-way) cruel. Which is what this...
