IMHO the video is of an exhibition...the horse is wrapped.
Yes, if you enlarge either photo of the rider's leg, there's obvious injury to the horse's skin, and a line of sutures is visible. Would be interesting to see the other side of the horse as well.
Have you thought of Hidden Springs Ranch in Mountain Center ?
They specialize in raising warmbloods and have beautiful large grass pastures.
They also compete the young...
Ok then I was right. I'm the only one that thinks it was odd.
My farrier would never presume to recommend certain joint supplements, unless he was asked for his opinion. So I use my vet as a source...

Have you contacted USEF, USET, Phelps Media, Dressage-News, etc. about your concerns ?
What's a "may victim" ?
The WC isn't a team competition. It's for individual riders who qualify under WC requirements.
I'm not the seller...it caught my eye so just posting this in case someone is interested.
I'm not the seller...just posting this in case anyone recognizes the winner.

p.s. Spectators (family, friends, general public) would appreciate this too !
