    There are plenty of horrible unethical pros out there - along with the good ones. Can't imagine restricting due to no trainer. Actually, one of the reasons people leave trainers is due to them...

    Bummer, especially when as time ticks by other opportunities come along. Wish they at last operated like AHHA so we could get a preview. Dislike those using that host.

    Look at how the Dutch handle it. They have a phenomenal program. If a trainer wants a ride on a horse they must contribute. I would not pay board, etc., to hand over my nice young horse I could...

    Baloubet was another who was said to be a lackluster sire but a great riding horse. Time has proven he can produce as well. I wouldn't write Toto off yet. I hear breeders say a foal isn't nice or...

    I love the Dr. Bristol. It's one of my favorite bits. Also, a good old slow twist is worth a try.
