    It is a joy to watch him ride. We have a number of excellent riders in this country as well, not saying we don't, but watching his dressage test -- that is what it is all about.

    That explains why Pro Force is not available in my area, we don't have Pennfields either. Interesting! I had looked at it as a possible cheaper alternative to TC Senior when I knew Nutrena was...

    If she's dirt cheap she's probably worth taking a risk on, just get her vetted! She's cute enough that at a very low price point I'd take a chance that it would just work itself out. She's...

    I would ask them for a video where you can see her gaits NOT in slow motion. I find that really screws up a good sense of the horse because everything looks distorted in slow motion and you can't...
