I find that some techniques don't work so well for creating the balance we typically want to see in a young dressage horse.
You're right that's why I've just recently decided to not go out that way. Normally I've never been overly concerned on how they are started for the sake of breaking them under saddle, because they are immediately sent to another trainer for the ground work. I think this time I'm going to take a more constructive approach and have the stud head straight over to a good trainer. Is Patty still training at Aspen Creek?
