    There is a video there also. Shortened up in the front and showing false collection.

    I teach classic dressage NOT this "rushed up so we can get top price for him" type of trained dressage.
    Lol @ the video.

    And yes, but I also believe that this whole omg must overcollect horse too soon phenomenon is borned from the show ring.
    Basically, as long as there are people dumb enough to pay a lot of money for a horse that is going to need 6 months in the field, a good vet, and proper training, there are going to be trainers rushing horses to get them sold faster, for more money.
    But look! He's already in a double bridle! That mean he MUST be worth $100k!

It is horrible that wanting to turn a profit is more important to a trainer than the horses education. I understand it is still business, but a trainer should be a horse person first and business person second.

    Never a truer word spoken :)
