    Are stallions suddenly fashionable?

    Ours is the biggest trouble maker- the pally at the back. I’m sure it was him responsible for hiding all 3 between the hedge and barn...! He covered as a youngster but we’re not going to use him (or touch wood sell him). I know it makes me sound like ‘one of those’ owners but for now he doesn’t...

    Yes she’d by validos highlight out of a riccio mare :) Back to being relaxed today, phew. Did ‘cheat’ by giving her a little lunge and we just did mounting and wandering around on a loose rein but a positive session.

    A LOT of sass today. Didn’t really fancy leaving the gate. Going to step it back a bit for her as I think that’s what we need as a partnership. As much as I try I’m not a pro! It’s such a hard balance between she’s over confident/dominant and testing vs v young and insecure.

    Video Thoughts please....

    Agree with Mitchen. He’s a fat heavy cob running at a speed to match the handler downhill. I doubt he ever moved like valegro. I wouldn’t draw any conclusions from these I’m afraid.

    Are WB’s wimps?

    Mine aren’t- German riding ponies. Over dramatic sometimes but not wimps.

    Which type of cobs for showing?

    For me feathers off and plait the mane :)

    Would you buy a horse that has had Kissing spines surgery?

    I wouldn’t buy into such a significant known problem, no. Very slightly potential if it was a older schoolmaster working well for peanuts, but in general no.
