^^ I agree, ppls..Really--sometimes you just have to agree to disagree, and even then--who cares what someone else thinks/says? If you love your horse and beleive in him then there's no problem! I put my horse on a forum critique and got a "I'm not seeing anything special here. He needs to lose weight and he's tanking around on his forehand.." I was somewhat hurt/taken aback, but I reacted as nicely as I could, agreeing he needed to loose weight and saying I would work on getting him off his forehand..I love my horsey, and nothing anybody says to me will make any difference. Just turn the other cheek! You will probably never see her again so who cares? Maybe move to trail riding or something not in the competitive/show field..You can still ride english AND jump!
QH's can jump, sometimes bigger on average than TB's but usually over 3 ft, they don't have the biggest stride, but they can jump. TB's can jump big, but not all of them, most QH's can do four ft but that's their max. Only thing I wanted to point out. Also not a western QH advocate, just stating what I've found in the H/J world, where I rode and participated, and it is all just drama. Show Circus as I like to call it.
Rofl....Cowgirl, that's what I was thinking. Why would someone get so caught up in the drama that they go hunting other people down online! I have had people do a lot worse to me and didn't go that far with it. Perhaps a little self reflection is in order here by the OP.
