    Nope. I didn't like the higher speed proposal because I thought it was a potentially dangerous idea to encourage BN/N riders to ride at a speed that is inappropriate for the size of the jumps. My...

    Everything BFNE and JBRP said. Many of us have anecdotes about horses who bowed once and went on to run Intermediate and Advanced successfully (heck, I've owned two of them). Many others have...

    Have your vet share the information with your vet to discuss, but generally, for what you're looking for, no, it doesn't give me heart palpitations if the horse is pretty perfect in other ways. Were...
