Spirit, what do you mean by "great rider" then? You can't just use rollkur to achieve what she achieved. If you go abusive constantly the horse's patience will end at some point, and I doubt horse will be able to perform show after show successfully. It'll just break somewhere. I must say I looked up her videos and her horse (I only watched Salinaro though) doesn't look upset.
I'm not trying to defend Anky, rollkur, and such, but I agree with Kayty, often you need to hear both sides to know the real story. I still think the situation was handled highly unprofessional on their side though.
