    Same cue for a flying change as picking up the canter... only I change the bend before I cue the canter.

    What a cute pony. No, that's not ideal leg conformation but I was honestly expecting worse from your description!

    It's like a textbook example of how to make thighs look wide and legs look short/stumpy, where the seam and superflous detailing is placed.

    You can be an adult and be in PC (it's called Horsemasters) and you can be older than a junior (YR age or older) and still be in regular PC. We had some college students.

    I do not believe that you can both do grand prix meneuvers (properly) and not be able to get an effective half halt. I just don't. I'm sorry. Maybe the gap is in your education?!

    The stuff that he did when he was 18 months old isn't "flatwork." Not in the sense necessary to be doing substantial jumping. As I understand it you had him started at 18 months, he was then in race...

    You only got him back in July, 2012, right? I think you're expecting a LOT, given the history if you're now trying to do jumper courses at 3'6. He's essentially been under saddle for a year and a...

    So much to choose from but I'll just limit myself to this. Do you mean Tesio?
