Hi guys:
It is not necessarily 'animosity', it can turn into hate.
(I am laughing while I write this).
I do remember my early days in the showjumping circuit and I noticed something really surprising for me then.
You could make a remark to a parent about their kid's manners or disposition and even about their overall horsemanship, but beware of making any remarks about the horse. Candid remarks like "Please correct if I am wrong, but isn't your horse limping?" or worst "I believe it's conformation could be better", were to place such irresponsible person in the black list, never to be invited to the private parties.
The only explanation I found is that kids happen, but the horse was a very personal choice, anything wrong with it and you are really saying "I believe you are stupid about your selection".
Of course a remark like this to a breeder will mean only war and blood is the only possible detergent to clean the offense.
Even well behaved pople, with proper british upbringing are willing to accept they could be better parents, after all kids do not come with a manual. But their selection and their decisions is another matter, specially if we are talking about what for each one of them was an important investment, regardless of price.
Each one of us have made our own decisions, based on the info we had at the time and the available technology.
We are here to expand on the info and if possible explain the pros and cons of newer technology. And, to have a great time
