    We might have different versions of a similar story then:) In 2011 I was at Schwartze Hof where Selten was in training. The story I was told was that the horse was "too much" for his American rider...

    What do you mean by "flying change panic mode"? What does she do? If it is similar to my friend's pony he would get super anticipatory and back off her leg and just start doing random...

    In theory I think that is a great idea. Sadly, to some extent is has been tried with little success. Here in the Mid-Atlantic area they tried having a "showcase" sales weekend where sellers would...

    That is correct. We do not work in a way that encourages a hollow inverted back. I suspect that once my mare has developed the balance and musculature to work consistently in this new up frame we...

    This is very true and also important factor in a male line. The Y gene can only come from the sire. Hence, every male through a lineage has the EXACT SAME y-chromosome. Of course over time there...

    Just read this after my post. IMHO the "stetchy circle" through second level is often done incorrectly and not scored appropriately. The stretch should be down and OUT to the bit. Often you see...
