    How is talking about his morals, or lack thereof, less personal?

    Yes, really? Morals, versus how one rides, hhmmmm. I am far from the paranoid type, but strides always come up with "some" reason to feel sorry.....kind of weird to me.

    My point is that you are saying people are getting too personal talking about his riding. I think discussing his morals is far more personal than discussing riding ability.

    Morals is far more personal and honestly isn't how a trainer rides important since they are the pros. And to whoever asked about where is is located as far as I know he is still at anjelheart which is near the horse park but he has been kicked out of stargate

    You may be "far from the paranoid type" however that is a paranoid way of thinking. Understandable considering you aren't speaking face to face with anyone here, so I get that. Let me reinstate what was said before. I do not know this person. Because I "always come up with some reason to feel sorry" means absolutely nothing. It means that I am able to put myself in multiple shoes. Once again, to defend that statement, that by no means says that I am defending this trainer. I do not agree with what he did according to what I have heard, and I do not particularly care for anyone who has the audacity to do what he did. I didn't think it was necessary to leave half of my opinion out.

    This is very true. I suppose I was only looking at this from the business perspective, which ultimately does come down to ones morals. You are right.

    Wicked good quote. May I use?
