Allie don't hate me for this. It's one of those topics that seems to hide in the forums but is brought up over and over again. Those are just the few that came up from last year.

At home, I've got some excellent shots of Anky working with a stallion while in the Rollkur. Believe I posted them when this topic was brought up last time. I'll come post them on here when I get home.

To an extent I agree with what most of you posted as far as her training methods are concerned and the equipment and forceful methods she uses to get where she is BUT having said that, you also have to look at the rest of her riding. You have to look at how her horses respond to her despite the use of the rollkur.

Another thing you have to look at as well. As good as we all think we are, none of us have the training experience or riding ability these GP riders have and find it's easy to go out and pick out, the most well known dressage rider and talk about something she does and uses.

Do we really know what the others do behind closed doors?

There are schools of though in which the use of bits, saddles, spurs etc is thought to be abusive.
As much as Anky's methods are controversial, she still knows a hell of a lot more about training a horse to GP than you or I.
Amen! that's exactly it. I just don't understand why this is being argue over. We aren't even on the same playing field.
