Velvet tried to derail thread, Cesar Parra's Number #1 Fan
Just so you don't appear foolish Velvet. Van the Man had a very successful career in Germany under the training of Dorothee Schneider and was owned by Sven Rothenberger, one of the top owners in the world. The horse was on the market for a fortune. It has been with Parra less than a year and now can't pass the jog. Donovan another top horse in Germany, dead. Furst Fabio, considered the best horse Hubertus Schmidt ever rode, dead.
A horse he was very successful with at Devon, dead lame. And then we get to the horses that are involved in multiple lawsuits that were disabled or injured. This is what Dressage is promoting.
I am going back over to the Hunter/Jumper forum so I can sign the Humble Initiative.
