    Yep. You pegged that one. Hunters don't do flatwork, they just go 'round and 'round with no purpose. :rolleyes:

    Up until mid to late 90s, a horse had to have the appropriate color and be either TB, QH or TB/QH descent. 1/2 TB would never have been acceptable unless the other half was QH. These days, they...

    Count it as a blessing. If this trainer hasn't been able to advance your daughter, then another may be able too.
