If there are entire racing styles that do not pull from the shoulder, HOW IS IT HURTING THEM THEN??? I can understand where lillie's coming from, make them as comfy as possible and make their job as easy as possible...but she's trying to make me think what I did that one time was borderline abuse. Nah. I know I have little experience with this, but I KNOW I wasn't hurting her, and had her best interests at heart by dragging it by hand for 20 minutes first to ensure she wouldn't spook!
I dunno...I asked for help and got FLAMED.
