Well, I personally don't think that's a good reason to suddenly dislike anyone, but okay...

@Desert
I've never seen/heard of working equitation. Do you know if they have it in the Morgan breed or if it's a AQHA thing? My horse is about as far from cowy as they get western XD I'm not sure he'd do so hot if there was a cow part XD

Opal. I've been mulling over whether or not I like this guy or not for awhile. I think he's a decent horseman and has a good seat, but his buckaroo garb at an event like this kinda makes me mad. Seems like everyone, whether they have seen a cow in their entire life can be a buckaroo.. And Cowchick has been trying to convince me of this in another thread. I finally agree.

~Started young horses in Bosca te Ador, unto the two rein the old Spanish spade, brought them along with two hands that were gentle. Some fine reining horses as ever were made~

it's breed-independent. The second video has contact info. And I think, you're at the right place there with your Morgan

That's really beautiful, actually. I'd love to look into that. It seems a lot more...organized? Than WD. It's hard to do other disciplines though when your trainers were both co-founders for the WDAA and help to write a lot of the very tests you show. Also, my mom is a "strict non-english person" and doesn't ever support me when I show interest in english disciplines, so if I had more of a say in what I did (yes, sad, I know :/) I'd be doing english dressage probably. Since my mom doesn't support me in that venture though, WD is a good compromise. Still, I'd like to look into working equitation in-breed.

Like I said, second video has contact info.
And who knows, if you really look into it, find some interesting footage and show your mom....she might see the beauty in it also

Honestly I actually admire someone who's willing to give something a go to try to encourage other people to do something that involves getting on a horse and going out there.
The guy seems to have tours set for all over the world so he's making money and advertising the Vaquero image. I doubt he cares much about what he looks like!!
So he didnt make a great job of it, so he looked a bit over the top in his dress style but at least he tried which is a lot more than most people seem to want to do
Modern day dressage wouldnt exist at all if the old haute ecole people had things their way and they still sneer at it now. Same as they did when they evolved the modern day showjumping style from the old hunting seat
Some tolerance for what other people want to do with their horses doesnt hurt anyone

On another forum it was pointed out by someone who was at the CD event that Jeff had brought a young horse, no one had ever ridden the test before, including him, his mare had never done any type of trail or dressage test, and it was just a ride through to see how the test would flow. Jeff has several videos of his horses working at brandings and at Californio events. The mare would probably have been much less confused with a cow in the ring.
