There is no argument, no debate, nothing to talk about...
This is more like people blowing smoke becuase they just do not like the look of the western pleasure horse...
Everyone has an opinion.
I do not like today's competitive dressage one bit. I hate eventing and think it is very dangerous. I am not really into jumping anything, and I think gymkhana horses are typically mental nut jobs. Many of the backyard trail horses I met have attitudes and lack training so lets not even talk about collection. I like reining but I just do not understand the need for the 10 + foot long slides they want today and my horse is way too big (all legs) to do it regardless.
These are my opinions, and I do not like these events so I simply do not show in them.
So, yeah I dislike like these things but you know what else? I also do not go around posting in all these topic forums and threads babbling my mind and complaining about them to the people who do enjoy them.
I do what I like and what my horse is built to do, I am not hurting anyone and I am not hurting my horse.
If you don't like it; go show in something else. Its that easy
