Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

oh yes, well, i totally agree. Doesn't make much sense to start a lovely horse out with jumping all over town and then finally deciding, 2 years later, to teach him to walk, trot, and canter appropriately. They got lucky that he's not ruined and fried.

Is Sorrow a QH line I've just not heard of, or are they trying to say "sorrel"?

I think sorrow is the feeling you get when you look at the poor thing, in that horrible yard, and realise that for that price, she is going to stay there a while longer

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

The Irish have produced many brilliant competition horses and notably the best (fox) hunters come from there.
Give me an Irish horse over a warmblood when it comes to needing a brain - they are more able to find a fifth leg, can jump out of any deep going and are bold as brass.
The reason for this is because they are taken out cross country way before they have done anything else. If that doesn't teach them balance, nothing will.

Yes, there are fantastic Irish horses, but there are also very badly trained Irish horses. Like any other horse, from any other country - a microwave job and rushing a horse out hunting isn't going to benefit the horse in the longterm.

I am very much aware of the demand for horses who have hunted, especially over in the UK since it was banned, but if I am going to buy a horse I would hope that he went through steps A - C before embarking on D.

Well, she looks like she's getting enough to eat. That's something at least.

I must say that that "sorrow" filly is kind of cute. She has such a kind, inquisitive face.
