    Proper hunter or equitation training isn't going to give you flaws, or a "duck butt," or perching, or any of the nonsense being thrown around in this thread. Poor training will do that, and I've...

    Some pretty sweeping generalizations there. There are plenty of horses in a number of different show circuits that don't live "normal" horsey lives. They live on road, maybe get a few weeks off...

    I'd be interested to see evidence of the rear stike, not a photo of a person still in flight with the heel pointed down. Strike pattern also depends on surface; if someone habitually runs on a...

    I experienced the same thing too. When I first tried running (in my big ole Sauconys and my heel striking), I found it so difficult to breathe and relax. It felt like such a chore. And now when I...

    The Paddock is in Omaha and decent, but not huge. I think there is another out in Gretna, but I don't know if you're interested in the extra drive.
