    Another vote for Equispirit. Nothing better in my book and their 2+1 is Fab. Actually, I think they originated the design.

    I've never heard of a Sportaloosa. It is an Arab/App cross? Used in Arab racing?

    One cannot have correct contact without a bit, so I certainly hope traditional dressage never accepts bitless bridles.

    There are so many misconceptions about the bitless movement. They are no...

    Under no circumstances should she consider buying a horse. Nor should she even think about keeping horses at home in the next several years.

    Horses are surprisingly delicate creatures that...

    Here's hoping! I would love to see the trend of leg flingers end.

    This is spot on. The level of collection required to do a 2nd level test correctly is beyond many, many horses. They can do the movements, but often not carry enough behind. Done correctly, 4th...

    What does your vet say? If the horse is comfortable hanging out with his buddies in the field, I wouldn't put him down because of what "might" happen.

    If he isn't comfortable, then that's another...

    The only way to determine whether an adult horse needs a vaccine is to pull a titer. That will tell you the level of antibodies in your horse's blood and whether they need an additional vaccine.

    No.

    There is nothing "Natural Horsemanship" can give you that is better than good ground work from many other disciplines.

    The recommendation to check out baroque training is good.

    That said, if...

    I'm pretty "live and let live", but there is an unfortunate connection between escorting and a miriad of crime activity.

    This is a high risk lifestyle where control is an illusion. If nothing...

    This isn't a wonderful BM/trainer/coach.

    A wonderful one ensures that all horses have free choice forage unless a medical condition precludes it.

    A wonderful one approaches YOU and tells you...

    This is where we fundamentally disagree. In order to comfortably excel at upper level dressage, a horse needs certain attributes, I'll throw out a few: uphill build, high neck set with enough room...

    Exactly. If he can be serviceably sound, he may make the right person a nice LL horse. Calling him an UL prospect, though, is just ridiculous

    Hahahahahahaha. Great joke!

    This horse is built nothing like ANY sporthorse stallion from a reputable registry I've seen.

    But, never mind the lack of correct conformation.

    Folks, this...

    Horses need free choice forage unless there is a individual-specific issue that precludes it.

    Any barn that restricts hay is poorly managed and to be avoided at all costs.

    Yeah, don't make this hard. Call/text/message her, say you've made another choice and move on.

    BF fanatics are ridiculous people. Your horse is better off without her.

    It has nothing to do with how a rider looks. It has everything to do with saving a horse the pain of carrying too much weight.

    Based on the website link for the Barocks Pinto (I've never heard of this either), it looks like another registry really focused on hair and color.

    Generally speaking, Friesians don't make the best dressage horses. They are built to pull with their front ends, not push from behind over their backs. This makes them mostly tight in the back and...

    Does this mean that multiple riders were on her all summer? I imagine switching back and forth between "real" dressage and camp work to be no small feat. She's probably also sore from over use. ...

    As others have said, Brazil is a third world country and Rio is a nasty, nasty place; filled with more corruption than its share.

    British and Australian athletes were robbed.

    OP, take a step back and pretend this is the first time you've seen the horse. Based on her bloodlines, rideability, and show record, what is a reasonable value for her?
