LOL Courtney that made me chuckle... but you'd get more complaints if your horse had aladin shoes from not trimming o.0
I agree, I honestly do.. but I thought.. woah, what if they do? Best ask around before I pass judgement!!
Dressage is intense, but so is showjumping, and other disciplines (I have no idea about western!)
But to be fair, no amount of training, abuse, harsh bits, chains, spurs and what not will make a horse do something if they didn't truly want to do it.. I mean.. have you seen the size of these cute ickle ponies?? Let alone horses, especially at this level.
Most embarrassing. My Duffster, a 6yo, 18.1hh WB.. no problems.. I get dragged by a 124cm 21yo welshie. And I mean dragged.
So for anyone who wishes to say things like dressage are abusive, please think before you speak, you might just set me off on a rant!
