This is SO true, Steph.  No matter what you feed, how often you lyte, etc., 
etc., if the HORSE doesn't have what it takes, it's like trying to make a 
silk purse out of a sow's ear.  (You can screw up a good horse with 
mismanagement, but you can never take a poor horse past its innate potential 
with powders and potions!)  And yes, it takes a good rider to get the most 
out of ANY horse--the limitations of the rider will certainly limit the pair.
