So horse-tumblr we are active tonight so I expect you all do actually do this. I have enough followers so get on it! I want detail so reblog it and answer okay? Good. Dressage/Jumping/Western/Horses/Whatever - ANY Discipline!
Yes like the feeling you want to ride a pirouette canter, more like cantering in place (as we say it)
Yes I have to do that a lot when I train with Carmen because George tends to be a lazy ass motherfucker and refuse to bend correctly!
I do the same hold-ups when I come on the line for my pirouette so I do hold ups and let him canter in place (omg I hope you know what I’m trying to say, my English is so bad at times!) and instead of doing to pirouette I ride him forward again. I have to do that because he tries to take over in them and then it’s more like ’ AND NOW PIROUETTE RIDER’ and he does this really fast turn haha :)
What I also like to do is ride him more into passage but keep him really active from behind and ride him forward and ride a bit of passage and back forward to keep him quick and of course to get the more passage-ish trot :)
ugh i hate it when horses anticipate things and are like ‘SURPRISE’
like ffs listen to the aids im giving you little shit
George is always like ‘I’m listening, I’m listening … FUCK YOU LITTLE SHIT I’M A UNICORN AND I DO WHATEVER I WANT ! TOEDLES!’
Soraya’s last comment!! :’)
You should know that it was his dream to become a unicorn not a dressage horse 😃
In honor of our last rainy week here are some pictures taken in our rainy summer!
