    These people are idiots. Do you have any idea how physically difficult it is to step like that for taht long. I only watched half of the video and the horse was working up a good sweat.

    Yes I do, I could see him getting tired and hear his breathing getting quite rapid. There is a reason horses at high levels of dressage only do it for a short amount of time.

    I just double clicked on the video for the ad you posted to access the sellers YT account. Showed the other three he's selling with links to their ads as well. The guy likes the word "dancing" quite a bit.

    I am personally disgusted by the way these animals are trained and treated. You can tell that all of those stallions are beginning to or already have formed upside-down necks from being ridden with their heads so high and tucked at the crest. Standard practice with this kind of riding is to have the horse hold it's head high to look 'proud' and rounding, flexation, etc- are never taught to the animals. They are ridded in curb bits, as you'll see if you zoom in to the ads.

    If you're a very experienced rider who is willing to pay for the horse to be cut, can accomodate it as it's testosterone levels out, and you're willing to work with a horse who most likely reacts to fear, pain, and roughness rather than light aids and reward methods- then go for it. If any of these things make you think twice though, I'd say move on.
