    You know, I saw that video posted earlier and I thought I want to know who that young woman is and what she's doing now. I bet she's really interesting.

    And you are!!

    The young woman is the Preachers daughter and she was a teenager at the time. Very brave.

The gaits they will develop with correct training. This makes me wonder if we won't see the young horse judging evolve to reward the qualities you have mentioned above over time. If the goal is to produce sporthorses that reach the highest level of our discipline I would imagine that it will. If the goal becomes producing flashy horses strictly for the YH classes then obviously it won't. I hope that with time we see the former rather than the latter.
    I really hope so too! In the meantime we seem to have many people confused between huge moving young horses which they can't train or ride and the desire to advance through dressage levels through quality training.
