> Most appreciated, B B, Where are you located? I will do some digging for you but it will take awhile,The legg thing sounds as if she has had some trouble with the feet issue.I have seen them go very lame from impropper trimming. They are bred to be very personable with lots of BRIO meaning Hot under saddle and this really means the training involved.Like any horse a loose reinshould mean relax.However they are trained in the Spanish way the doubble briddle ie: as in Park ( Arab) only not quite so. Hard for me to explain this.I will get you intouch with someone who can help you if hopefully a trainer.Talk Later Cindy
