    I am biased. My horse is by Copelan. He is 24 now, and we never went higher than Novice, but he was very athletic. Only his rider held him back.

    I should add that I walked around on my first broken foot for a week before admitting it was really broken and going to the MD. I even flew to FL for a conference. Really stupid.
