    I don't have a stance on this WD issue, but I do have a genuine question... are the scores typically higher than in dressage? I looked at a few videos on that man's website, and he seems to...

    This is the kind of context that I'd like to have... I'm guessing these are young horses, but how advanced are the riders? I've watched it again on a larger screen and the see-sawing doesn't appear...

    Alibi, I spent several years riding and working with a 'classical master' in my youth... it didn't look or feel like some of the moments in that video. On a few occasions some slightly unorthodox...

    Bizarre, disturbing and potentially depressing. I saw them in London in late 2012 I believe... the first year they began this newly-rigorous touring schedule. I very much liked what I saw then. It...

    I completely agree! I've said the same thing on this forum in the past, but it got lost in the haze. Why can't we just call them 'non-WBs', or by their specific breed designation? I'm proud to...

    I think what Ideayoda is saying is that the 10m curve onto the centreline is only asked for once in most tests, occasionally twice. That is very different to 'continuing to repeat' a square with 8m...

    Hester's thoughts on Piaffe coefficients

    Interesting to hear his views, but I'm not sure I entirely agree with him on this point. I'm genuinely interested to hear everyone's thoughts on this:
