    Vineyridge creates dreams; Bayhawk exposes them.

    It's so easy to make Bayhawk the villain, even with the facts on his side. No amount of sugar-coating is going to soften the message he delivers...

    As an owner, I would entertain a contract/lease so that the leasee could show in certain divisions. I would promptly retract the offer if presented with a release such as the OP is proposing.

    Black or brown yarn works too. Wrap the yarn around the cheek piece a couple of times where you want the runner to be and tie a good square knot. The yarn typically won't leave residue like tape do...

    This forum is no longer a voice of warmblood breeding in this country (on this continent?) and hasn't been for a very long time. A few diehards remain, but it's clear from the daily traffic who now...

    Each of the lists (the WBFSH ranking, the FN rankings, etc.) has its value; however, neither is perfect. For example, one or two very successful offspring of a sire can unfairly skew the WBFSH...

    I had a good friend try this. First import died in six weeks from a congenital issue. Second import (to replace the first) is Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde (destroyed a trailer). Even the experienced...

    People's sense of right/wrong based on these facts may not comport with the law. Best to check with an attorney.
