I handled a number of horses, including the stallion in my avatar and his offspring. I haven't the last couple of years, though.
This stallion belonged to Lochill, so I did most of their handling. However, I was not at the 2010 or 2011 inspections in the area.
Druy, they run it very traditionally. You need to be fit!! You have to run the triangle in such a way that your horse trots with as much extension as you can manage without having the horse break into canter. If you would like more info on how to present your horse, let me know. There is a real formula to this presentation that differs from most "halter"/showmanship.
