    Hey! I paid $700 for my pony. Am I the other one Reynard Ridge?

    I also started the dressage saddle thigh-block-hating clique.

    I think I was 12 at at the only 'big' show we did a season. (We were the poor cousin types from up the river, and our horses were all grade leftovers. My little pony was a nice fellow, and I'd...

    I don't know if a male horse has a prostate.

    The reason I wonder is I have one of the most frequent pee-ers in the universe. He doesn't pee a lot (not at all like a racehorse :) ) but he pees...

    I would have thought they would be harder to explain from a creationist point of view. "Well, I guess God just thought they were pretty"??

    People compare BB's to 'a discussion in the living room' all the time.

    But I don't think it is. I think a BB is more like reality TV. It can serve an educational purpose, but mostly it's...

    OK, so if this is true, how do the two worlds relate?

    I mean, there are a handful of upper level riders, hundreds of people on the next rung down, thousands below them, and hundreds of thousands...

    Dressage may well have improved in the last 30+ years. But I've gone from liking it to feeling somewhat unsettled about it, based on what I see.

    Some of the modern horses are lovely, though. I...

    Let me just quote that and let it stand in all its glory. Some people can't see a simple question mark without imagining boogie men under the bed.

    The first video (haven't got the second downloaded yet) does bring up a point about photography.

    There are points during the trot movement where the front and hind cannon bones are perfectly...

    Pardon me. I wasn't clear.

    I mean to say they are not, IMO, stepping under as well (as evenly) as I think would be ideal for the medium. Again, I am of the old school insofar as I like the front...

    I dunno. Do we have a photo of a horse bouncing around off his forehand, strung out, with no power? :)

    When I compare the page of 4 photos with Canadian Golden's photo, I have to say that CG's...

    What I like best about this photograph is that the inverted V's created by the front legs and the hing legs are far more equal than those commonly seen. It may be a case of when the photograph is...

    You're making a whole lot of assumptions.

    Let me just give you an independent view. I don't know you. I don't know mbm, either. I went back and read over the thread from the beginning when...

    You modern heathen you.

    I agree that the second photo would qualify more as a lengthening than an extension, but I prefer the less round topline. I really dislike the modern penchant for a very...

    Well, I don't know about that. Fer instance, the discussion on whether or not you let the frame lengthen for an extended trot. That came out of the discussion of this particular photograph.

    If I...

    Which kind of raises the question yet again. What, in your opinion, is the most USEFUL response to the original post?

    This, perhaps?

    Reading directions.

    Does ANYBODY'S husband actually read directions? I mean, what's the real problem here? They graduated 3rd grade and put down Dick and Jane and vowed never to pick up the...

    What you said.

    Critiquing is part of how people improve. It's not condemnatory. It's _informative_. I've never understood the old "why is everybody against (horse/rider/photograph)?" crap...

    Sar,

    One of the things I learned at the UDBB is: when I've posted something a little sharper than I intended, fess up. "I'm sorry, folks, didn't mean to offend. Guess I got up a little grumpy...
