Quite frankly, it's not YOUR horse either. It seems unclear on what your plans are for this horse. From your original post until now. Are you just looking for an all around English horse? You should be more specific on who your addressing. If your addressing me about projecting problems, then you've got it all wrong. I simply am trying to help and explain that yes, you can do it. But you are going to spend a lot of time retraining a perfectly trained horse. And in the process, he will more than likely become confused at one point or another. Maybe there's no hostility here, only frustration about your actual plans. You asked a question and you got opinions. They might not be what you wanted to hear, but none the less you asked.
