    Interesting that you mention Totilas, because his extravagant trot was very much created in training. Somebody saw the potential in there and they brought it out. His trot as a 5yo and even as a 6yo...

    I can speak to this in straight dressage. I had a lovely schoolmaster who, while (usually) quite obedient in the ring, and he definitely knew the movements, was older and a little creaky, and I...

    I would say that the gaits score is partly a score of the quality of the horse's natural movement and ALSO partly a score on the quality of the horse's training. Proper training does improve the...

    Absolutely.

    Sometimes, people see only the flamboyance, the flinging front legs if you will, and assume that's where a big score comes from. And part of it does. But often, in those cases, an...

    Dressage judges are taught to score each movement starting with the quality of the gait. So, every single movement's score depends on the quality of the gait at that moment. Flamboyance within the...

    I don't know that I would assume that. He certainly has a very active Facebook page and while I can't be 100% certain, it does seem that he is the one doing the posting on it. Just yesterday...

    I think more American eventers ARE doing exactly this. Allison Springer is one who has shown her 4* horses (Chloe and Arthur) in the national dressage classes at Wellington over the winter. As...

    I'm not 100% certain they disagree based on your paraphrasing; it may be a semantics problem. If my trainer said "weight on the side of the bend," I would assume he meant weight on the side of the...

    OP, I have very much the same story as you. I was managing a training barn on the side of my desk job (plus riding 5-6 days/week) and when I hung up the muck boots and my horse retired, I gained A...

    This is so true. Growing up we probably had 10 different dogs and uncountable farm cats and I think only 2 of all those were chosen on purpose by us! The rest were what my dad calls "walk-ons." :)

    OK, I see. When Charlotte rides her entire career under the watchful eye - for every ride - of Carl Hester, it qualifies as Charlotte training the horse herself.

    :lol: Saying Charlotte Dujardin trained Valegro to GP herself is rather astonishingly diminishing Carl Hester's large part in the program. Imo, the 2 situations don't have much in common.
