A little cool, a little drizzly but still great instruction This was a very good and informative clinic this Saturday!
Yvonne Barteau of KYB Dressage tells the spectators that she often hears riders say that a horse being evaluated is to old to be useful. She disagrees. This beautiful animal is in his 20's! Her point in the discussion? Don't throw an old friend away to auction, they have plenty of uses. What rider wouldn't want to go to a lesson or show on this guy or what trainer wouldn't want to teach a client on-board this kind of experience!!! If a TB isn't fast enough on the track, a quarter horse isn't quick enough around the barrels, or age has made him not flashy enough for the big show. It's time to reevaluate their job description, not time to throw them away to auction where they most likely will end up on a meat wagon!
