    Some of the direct offspring can have that characteristic, but some of the "grand offspring" can inherit it (and a tricky temperament), too. It just depends on the horse and what they happen to...

    Interesting! Personally, I think your horse's breeding is a bit of a crap shoot. The Sire For Compliment is Fidermark (good rideability but not always, good movement but not always) and Compliment...

    I can look into some bars in Chapel Hill. I know someone who owns a wine bar off Franklin St. Would you guys be into that if he could stream?

    Sheesh! A good friend of mine swept the third level championships at third with her OTTB and her FEI classes with a pinto Bashkir curly stallion. A good horse is a good horse! Why are we surprised?

    It's not uncommon for insecure horses to have good ground manners and be unable to translate that undersaddle. My horse was raised by someone who watched a lot of Clinton Anderson videos. I think...
