    Horse in Contact Based on Hand Position?

    Thinking about this, do some horses just prefer one type of contact (lip/cheek pressure) to another type (pressure on the bars)? Is this a bad thing? Should we appease a horse's preferences or get...

    Definitely not trying to not the quality of the horses & I'm glad the system seemed to award the horse's most worthy in the end. The only thing I'm really concerned about was more than conformation...

    Cor de la Bryere is not the C-line I was referring to, but rather the Capitol, Cascani, & other Capitano-influenced horses, which make phenomenal, scopey jumpers. Cor de la Bryere, a very light,...

    The train is still there ,unfortunately. No studs required. The footing is actually some of the best in the area now that John Marshall has taken over. Camping is easy right next to the stabling.
