Oh, right, you mentioned that
Some years ago I spent a night in the indoor arena of European QH championship. We had a filly there, and I couldn't sleep, so I checked out the reiners, who had the arena all night after classes finished, for practice. There was this girl, not more than 16, 17. Cigarette and chewing gum, practicing stops. 20, 30;times, ran that horse in the wall, smoking, and chewing, mouth open. Smiling too. Any Arab I've ever known would have dumped her after the second time. And I was pretty close to pulling her off that poor horse. She wasn't the only one doing it either. I think if you have to do that still, you don't belong in a championship, first of all.
And second, this kind of, let's say obedience, passiveness, from the horse....idk, something's wrong.......
I am not saying everybody does it that way, just to make that clear. It was a long time ago, I'm sure methods have changed.
