    First, I'm sorry for what happened to your horse. Aside from ruining his tail, I would be MOST upset that some stranger is in the stall with my horse.

    Totally agree - I RODE in the 3'6" hunters in the 70's and 80's - heck, lead changes weren't really an issue - could skip a lead change and judges wouldn't mind. The quality of the horses and how...

    I disagree with most of what is said in GM's article.

    If you go watch the 3'6" hunters - pros and amateurs, the good ones are really amazing to watch. NO horse can "crawl" up to a 3'6" oxer -...
