    I have already weighed in on this, but will add this comment.

    The horse in question should not need a naked guy sitting on his back to attract breedings, or even to get people to look at the ad....

    It is my understanding that poling is still a common training technique in many jumper barns - both in Europe, and in the US, South America, etc. Many folks will deny-deny-deny it, but rumors/reports...

    Zoey, Alexandra, and other make really, really good points above. Be sure to set an appt with the various stallion stations. For one thing, it is just good manners. For another thing, very few (if...

    Hopefully Lucassb will jump in here. She has made the same transition from H/J to dressage in the past couple of years. I don't think she still jumps, but she can probably give you some tidbits about...

    Agree with the above regarding Contendro I - the Oldenburg stallion roster shows him at Gestüt Famos.

    Amen on this. My horse much prefers you to sit into his back, rather than "hovering" in an attempt to be light with your seat. He is the same way about the bit - he likes a nice solid contact. If you...

    I'm not a fan of nudity and sex being used to market anything. The item should attract buyers based on its own merits, not because there is a scantily clad or nude model pushing it.
