Im here. Ive seen it. You get people that care and people who are just after the money.
Many people here don't know about the feelings aboit their horses. Simply because they don't care.
Ive done 120 km with a horse that is 18 years of age.
He retired when he was 20.
Now he is 24. Still strong and is one of the best school horses i have worked with.
One of them has been disqualified because his horse was limping... And if you limp and have to run 40 km of course you're fed up and in a bad state after all... If they don't know how to recognize a horse who limps, you don't run that kind of competition.
I don't really know what's happening in that discipline but I've heard few things, especially that horses who're coming in their stables few years after they're dying in competitions ... As this week-end, but I don't really know why and what's happening ...
