    This topic brings back memories. Had a horse in training ($$) and doing very well competing (not in the H/J discipline). Get a call from trainer that he's no longer riding, but XYZ could take the...

    For what my opinion might be worth ... Nice shoulder, high-withered but the neck ties in well. Would prefer shorter cannons (and longer forearms) and shorter pasterns (front and back). Feet should...
