    Very nice! And drool is a good thing in dressage ;) (it's pretty gross when the horse has just eaten hay though)

    He's quite a lovely horse.

    Speaking of drool, why is it acceptable in dressage? Is it acceptable in H/J?

    If the horse is working the bit properly and correctly flexed for dressage the saliva glands in the horse will be active and moisten the bit. A horse should not have excessive drool but a whitening of the lips is good and some may fall off.

    In h/j because the head/neck is not usually flexed in the same manner it will not appear. Also hunter requirement has a longer more open frame to be "right" for them so drooling would be considered a "bad" thing.

    Just a matter of what is wanted in each discipline.
