Endiku, I think you make a great point about OTTBs having little association with western training, etc. I used to ride at an equine therapy facility and one of calmest, most trustworthy horses there was a 12yo OTTB mare who was ridden in a simple little s hackamore. She was a beautiful English mover but I never thought twice about her in her western getup. She was an amazing trail horse, too, and seemed quite content with her new life! I just had a baby and my husband and I are moving, but my 2 year plan includes an OTTB that I plan to ride strictly western.
