    +1 to everything BFNE wrote.


    If XC was a sport all by itself we'd all be looking for the horse you describe. We compromise on those qualities for the other two disciplines. When your goals are...

    I don't think you can have the concept of Haflingers and ponies running at Training but the LLs not being an endurance test in the same sentence. :) No, for an OTTB the lower levels are not a true...

    They probably will. Pretty standard proceedured in Hunterland so that it opens up what the horse is "qualified" to do. They generally don't like rules to get in the way and it is very inconveient...
