    Those are funny...The one's with Anky cracked me up.

    The original topic was a lawsuit. You are, as usual, confused.

    Try to keep up, DA!

    Nobody can stop you from being combative, rude, accusatory, and snippy, but at least please don't claim that you are an angel
    Wow. Nasty. You have just described yourself.

    I said I was open minded. I never claimed to be an angel. ;-)

    What would be fun is if Larry King invited Astrid on his show. Imagine the world audience looking at pics of RK, right before WEG and the Olympics, wonder what the reaction would be.

    I think time will tell. I believe fear of public opinion is precisely why Sjeff dropped his lawsuit.

    Ditto on both counts!

    Oh no, Mainstreet you've been reported to Larry King Himself by the "Blue Tongue" FB group:
    via Larry King Live: Is is ok for someone to use Larry King to defame a journalist? http://www.cnn.com/feedback/ In this video the journalist Astrid is being painted as someone who is a sold out xenophobe. All because she wont support this kind of horse training: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ForoS1...P7lc0 -that's the official dressage coach for Holland and the person who sued and then dropped his lawsuit riding, and this is his wife: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GQ7n...eature=related a 3 time olympic gold medalist and the riders she has inspired. How would you like to be that horse? Please Larry ask Astrid on your show so she can defend herself. www.eurodressage.com

    If you want to see Astrid for real on Larry King go to the contact us, click on the news tip box and fill in some info about the video and how Larry is being shown in support of defaming a fellow journalist.
    I sent an alert re: my own posting yesterday expecting this to be promptly edited along with some other posts as I wasn't inclined to comply with a nasty attack out of nowhere and figured the mods would moderate as they saw fit, so I left. had the person explained their issue and asked nicely instead of attacking it would have been edited in 20 minutes, no problem! instead it was up for more than a day.

    if anyone has an issue with the remainder of the post, send me a PM!

    These "discussions" will never end as long as some people refuse to see the difference between RK and LDR.

    It's a matter of degrees, people. LDR involves no force. It asks the horse to stretch low, deep, round. Period. That can't be "forced".

    To put a horse's chin on his chest (RK) involves force. Pulling it there.

    That's the difference.

    I agree, the general public, given all else that's going on in the world, doesn't give a hill of beans about what a bunch of DQ's are up to. Seriously. Maybe in Europe, where horse sports are more mainstream, but not here in the USA.

    I believe Americans are sensitive to animal abuse. And some pictures and videos I've seen, of horses with their tongues hanging out and their heads reefed back to their chin, just might appear to those Americans as abusive.

    And to egontoast, your cliche about labels is tired.

    The horse is not 'jumping' -
    I think that depends on what your definition of "is" is!

    he is taking a small X
    actually it's a small vertical

    and the lightweight chains helped teach him to pick up his feet....and never marked him in any manner.
    sounds remarkably similar to what people get a 6 month vacation and years of pariah status for!

    You folks ride with hoof protectors and cannon protectors....are you sure they are 'safe' with no residual harm?
    not 100% sure, no, the materials might eventually be proven to cause cancer or something, but unlike jumping a horse in chains, unaltered protective boots would never be a violation of FEI abuse rules!

    Thanks for the low blow against my country. It's rude and uncalled for.


    To the poster stating the Anky didn't want the government looking into her.......the Dutch love her so I don't know which government you were referring to.

    The issue you all have with Anky is just that an issue with Anky, no need to bring the Netherlands into things.

    Eurodressage cannot be objective in this. The item comes across as petty and gloating and not good journalism. Surprise. Surprise.

    And this reeks of sour grapes.
