    I agree completely that the loin coupling is ultimately the most integral issue. A lousy loin coupling is problematic forever- causing, or allowing sacral issues, and a horse who is weak in their...

    I think that you missed the point- she saw this horse on a group for Amish horses, and thought he would both be a possibility as a dressage horse, as well as be one less on the road.
