    Form follows function, but some of the best riders I know look awful on a horse, from foxhunters to steeplechase to flat racing to show hunter/jumpers. You can be just as effective looking awful as...

    I don't like downhill horses, and believe that a horse with a good, big, strong back end needs a complementary front end. Just because it is a stallion does not mean it's a good example of the...

    I think the QH breed as a whole is bred for natural collection. Most (not all) qh disciplines demand a high degree of agility and collection, although not necessarily the free, forward movement of...

    Have had a judge decide NOT to test any further during an eq class because he did not want to "lose" the winner! Guess he didn't have too much confidence in the class as a whole.
