    Yes and seen all the time in the Dressage ring and even winning.....And then they let the horse go and end up bolting. bring the horse to us for re-training and say "why would it bolt" "why can't I stop it" as they pull on both reins and just give the horse more power.
    They drive me mad, hubby is much more "people nice", I just walk away

    But maybe thats just me
    Ok I get it thanks it is better.

    You know we as human just seem to ask so much of animals & with horses some poeple seem to forget they are living breathing beings not just a means to winning.

    As with everything I think it takes a mixture of things for each individual situation.

    I've seen seen some very badly conformed horses trying to be jammed into a frame , the horse just isnt built to be capable of a true frame . More often than not lately they are turning up in the hack ring more then on the dressage arena ,heads and front end jammed to billyo and rear ends just trailing along for the ride....sad when you think back 30 odd years when the idea of a go0d show 'Hack' was to be a well put together riding animals that also pleased the eye.

    Riding style seems again to be going through a change here in Oz,we've been so Europ based for so long now that IMO riding/training faults were being considered the norm in aim of some end result.
    It now appears we are heading back into how a horse is built and whether or not the horse in question is suited to whatever role it is you have in mind.

    I agree alot of poorly conformed horses end up jammed into a frame that is near impossible for their stucture.
