I think the trainers back then would have laughed. Because back then it was common sense and listening to the horse. Not games and DVD's. Xenophon is a great read.
Yeah, but I find it funny that he had to put a noseband on the horse when he lead it, to avoid being bitten.. :P

Well obviously they are trained differently - as is any horse in any given discipline. But they are still a warhorse - that was my point. Reiners and/or jumpers aren't trained the same in a lot of cases but they are still reiners/jumpers.

I have a book called I Am The Great Horse and its from the point of view of bucephelas from the time he met Alexander to the time he died. It says that he was blind in one eye.
