    It’s all about “the jump” they have. The ones that can run to the jump and come over running on the other side are the ones who are going to get their picture taken. They can’t “show jump” it. If...

    From my Steeplechase experience and perspective. By and large no. Which is contrary to what flat people/trainers think is what we are looking for. We don’t want a horse that “can run all day”. The...
