    Alagirl, I wouldn't call him a stinker but smart, pony-smart actually.

    Does anyone have a photo of the Eventing horse who once went *under* a xc fence? I believe the rules were changed after that to stay that the obstacle had to be negotiated by going over, not merely "negotiated."

    I seem to recall having seen a mishap like that under saddle, At the Hamburg Derby no less, the infamous 'Eisenbahnschranken', obstacle 12, a double with two red and white poles, and nothing else. I think more than one rider over the years ended up with the jump poles in their laps. ouch!

    Smart horse!!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Anne FS, I know the photo you mean. The jump was a huuuge Trakhener.

    I'd take that horse for dressage!

    I had horses go thru some jumps like they were not there, but not go under them.
