    I think they just a staff reshuffling pretty recently. I assume you've filled out the volunteer form on their site?

    I like the mare you posted, beowulf, but she's also 8 years old. I don't think it's fair to compare an 8-year-old mare to a 3-year-old. She is far more upright in the shoulder, too, and thus not...

    I don't think he's off, and I wouldn't be concerned about not getting to flex a (still-growing and potentially awkward) 3-year-old.

    Can we start a new thread for the argument and keep this thread about this very sweet, lovely young horse who obviously has a heart of gold?

    I'm truly surprised no one has mentioned carriage horses yet. Tons of history, and heated, informed opinions on both sides!

    That's unfortunate. I'm sure it was. Hopefully now, if she reads it, she can go back and see that plenty of people were already lauding her as a future equitation (and then some) star.

    She totally was. Poor thing. Whenever Lillie would compliment a rider or remark how young they were or how much potential they have, Brian would always turn it back to "Well, they have a lot to live...

    What does Angelo have to do with this thread though? Like why would flipping a horse (a hunter, at that) have anything to do with equitation?

    Agreed. And if we're saying that you have to win a final to become "complete", no one told Liza Boyd, Patricia Griffith, or Lauren Hough that.
