I have owned my horse for 3 years and when I got her she was a very consistent horse that could trot far above level without any action devices ever being used on her. Then I moved her and she went into part training with another trainer then that trainer didn't have time to train my horse so I had to do the training on her but had no say in her shoeing and the trainer stopped having the chiropractor see her regularly which she needs because she is very roach backed. Now she is a walk-trot lesson horse and she is starting to get back to where she was before. How does that make any sense at all? So tell me the big differences you notice between the years.
So i'll start with the pictures from when my horse was in full training with a well known trainer who had trained since she was 3.
