1. No thank you, but I feel sorry for the horse. rMoney doesn't have a great track record with animals.

3. So do I!

I know there are dressage defenders here on DU, but I'm not one of them. I can't imagine that moving like this is comfortable for the horse! It is purely for human enjoyment.

And yes, I was raised around horses.

6. Horse racing and anything else that stresses the knesses (like dressage) means early death.

 

Many are put down on the track, but those that aren't are likely to end up in Taco Bell.

4. Yeah, I agree.

Pretty boring. Now, if it were show jumping. That'd be another thing.

5. Beautiful horse, but not very interesting to watch.

Reminds me a bit of school figures in figure skating.

I kept wondering whether the horse was wishing she was eating grass in a nice green pasture somewhere.
