    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

    I think the animation was used prior for a spoof of Palin. Hence the resemblance. Scroll down and you'll see another "interview" by "Larry King".

    I agree that such drastic separation of opinions is strange. But it seems that not only Americans are questioning Hyperflexion method of training. Look at this old video: http://www.youtube.com/user/eponatv#.../0/svOBsSdjUvU


    Also this: http://epona.tv/uk/news/show/artikel...ash=c66df89229
    "Top rider and famous rollkur practitioner Anky van Grunsven has dropped plans of a lawsuit against journalist Astrid Appels."

    I remember the old days of US Dressage that if your horse was ON the vertical in training level you routinely got dinged for riding above the level. Times have changed.

    Good Lord! Why dig up this old thread!

    I may be "misremembering", but I think in the ancient days, leg yields were not written into First Level tests, either.

    I know. I was wondering the same thing. Why bring this thread back to life? Makes no sense whatsoever.

    Calling all thread killers! Can someone put a stake in this one and make sure it stays dead this time?

    Why not calling the Dragon, he knows a lot about lawsuits!

    Look under a barstool and find suzy.
    Get her to post something Seussian.
    See those flying monkeys? They work for me.

    I'm feeling more Shakespearean than Seussian today...

    William Shakesawhipat (1564-1616)

    from MacDepth

    A dark internet. In the middle, a Caldron boiling. Thunder.

    Enter the COTH crowd (and the obligatory witches even though we don't need them (a bit redundant)).

    Thrice the dreaded thread hath mew'd.
    Harpier cries:—'tis time! 'tis time!
    Round about the caldron go;
    In the poison'd posts we throw.—
    Seller of oil of snake,
    In the caldron boil and bake;
    Accusations of abuse
    And any old lame excuse
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

    Pics of Anky; flames from ‘trid;
    Much chaos abounds amid;
    Liver of blaspheming pro;
    Into the cauldron we do throw;
    Sliver’d in the moon’s eclipse;
    Rollkur rumors pass not these lips;
    As we see roots of dissension;
    All are warned to make no mention;
    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
    Cool it with a rollkurista's blood,
    Then the charm is firm and good.

    Agreed, siegi. But we should give Velvet some credit too as Suzy's muse. I mean Velvet's good on a horse but you should see her on a broom

    Further proof that a devolving thread turns into recipe sharing.
