Sure! (I think I got the right one - if not let me know!)
I trust him, I am his blind eye, I see what he can’t and that’s what makes us the perfect pair.
I genuinely think this horse is attempting to fly… x
How the cavalry learned independence of the seat… I wish we saw more of this type of thing nowadays, it looks like a lot of fun!
dem horses doe <3
God, I love watching the older cavalry videos!
This is so interesting!!!
Similar to how I learned independence of the seat (that’s nifty). Granted, I was the only one in the lesson, so only one horse down the gymnastic chute at a time, but still. Also usually did it without stirrups. I hated my instructor at the time for it, but I’ve been silently thanking her ever since.
It’s a long shot but so worth it if it actually reaches. Please oh please help a fellow horseman out?
puppies, kittens, bunnies, why not saddles?
Allie Blyskal-Sacksen and Sparrow’s Neo after a clean stadium round to win the 2013 Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International CCI**.
Allie and Neo really have a Cinderella story. Allie has trained Neo pretty much from the ground up, after she lost her longtime partner, Marshall, when he was tragically struck by lightning and killed in the field. The two made their way up the ranks to a disappointing showing at Jersey Fresh over the summer, where they unfortunately pulled seven rails during their stadium round. After enlisting the help of her Olympian husband, Sam Sacksen, she and Neo competed at the Plantation Field Horse Trials in September, where they finished 11th in the Advanced division, again having trouble in the stadium round. So I’m going to go ahead and say that their win was very well deserved and a long time coming!!

In the spirit of Halloween, I would like to discuss a trait that all horses possess but few humans appreciate: their ‘spooking’ instinct. While this undoubtedly saved many a prehistoric equine from sabertooth tigers and horse-eating dragons, the tendency to high-tail it to the next county with hooves flailing doesn’t do much for them survival-wise nowadays. I often wish that horses could understand verbal language. This way, I could calmly explain that when I yelp in terror as I become separated from my horse’s back, what I really am trying to tell him is, ‘Calm down, buddy. It’s just a ratty old plastic bag stuck in a tree, not the soul-sucking specter of a dire wolf. Please put all four hooves on the ground and stop trying to sacrifice me to save yourself.’ Here are some (in)famous spooking styles that horses use to escape from real or (more often than not) imaginary dangers: 1: The Panicked Pirouette It happens so quickly, you don’t even […]
