"Some horses appear badly shaped when standing still; but become good-looking, light and active as soon as they begin to move. Others, which seem almost perfect in repose, are heavy and awkward in their paces. I prefer the former to the latter, because they can utilise what they have got."
"It would behoove the breeding world to pay attention to a more appropriately shaped frame (rectangular) in order to enable a horse to correctly carry a larger rider on a 18.5 to 19-inch saddle."
"Exterior characteristics are not the only indicators of potential performance excellence. When a young horse has been started without the necessary calmness, without feel and with a hyperflexed neck, as is so often the case, then the buyer has an additional obstacle to overcome."
