    But I agree, don't...

    Are they using national tests or CADORA tests? CADORA does have tests at first that are suitable for a smaller arena.

    Confirmed that the back looks normal, so not a roached back. Has resulted in the horse's price being dropped substantially.

    Our insurance company has a list of rules we have to follow/enforce, so we have those posted (things like no dogs in the arena). We also require everyone to wear a helmet, and proper footwear.

    I didn't mean a one stride, just some sort of line that will fit. I tried to draw it, but they all got squished together :)
