It would be helpful if Debbie would clearly state why she is "rethinking" her future instead of writing a cryptic face book post .
Having the prominent position that she does in U.S. dressage, it...
khall we posted the same link at the same time. If you look at the post before yours you'll see.
I think the damage found to A.H.'s horse's mouth by the Danish vet rather strengthens the notion...
Umm..Golden State's owner is posting on this thread..

Exactly, that is the conundrum. What is LDR vs Rollkur?
How do you measure force?
It will be interesting to see how the FEI interprets its own rules.
God knows they've come up with some...
You betcha, I definitely earned what my skill was worth that day!
I believe that for the FEI hyperflexion=rollkur. The use of "force" in pulling the horse's head into position seems to be the deciding factor.
The picture looked to me like a guy trying to ride out a buck/spook, though I've certainly seen it done more elegantly..
Interesting that the "FEI finds these pictures extremely disturbing".. have...
I'm not surprised that you enjoyed the clinic! I really enjoyed watching him work.
I'll 'fess up. I am responsible for the wobbly videos and I try to excuse them by blaming the fact that
Has Debbie McDonald offered any explanation of what specifically led to her feeling that she perhaps won't continue to be involved with competitive dressage, or are we (still) left to speculation?

Interesting. There must be different catalogs. Mine came 4 days ago, says "2015-2016 Catalog". Photo of "Dalliance" (jumping with K. Farmer up) on the cover.
Nothing but boots on pg.91.
Hmm..91 in mine is all wellies and clogs. 87 is Ariat paddocks.
I'm astonished by the ability of anyone that can recognize a drugged horse by looking at a photo. "Supernatural" indeed.:winkgrin:
I have had rib injuries and though some folks may be able to power through and ride XC, a difficult moment on XC may lead to a rider having to make a sudden and/or extreme correction to get the horse...
Congratulations! May we see a photo?
I'm not qualified to give advice but can't help but say, what a lovely mare!
I think the main concern that many people have is not the "safety" of the rider.
The concern as I see it, is the possibility of harmful consequences for the horse when ridden by a rider who is...
It's a creative way to keep your best horses from being sold to foreign interests when they "make you an offer you couldn't refuse".
It must be incredibly difficult to refuse the millions offered...
I did. It was unusual and amusing!

What a stunning mare. Incredible race!
I hope they run her in the BCC.
