My name is Brindy, 16, and I live in Minnesota. Welcome to my 2nd blog, dedicated to my life with horses :) My original blog is youonlylooseorgans.tumblr.com :) If you are a blog I am following, it will be under my 1st blog name!!! I ride my Quarter Horse in rodeo games and my Paint for driving and showjumping. Feel free to pop by my Ask box~!
but everyone always tries to move collection to the bottom. stop it.
Can anyone message me and help me with understanding this, actually? Like, I get most of it in a reading sense. Cade has developed his rhythm and works very well, but how do you know they are relaxed and using the energy from their hind legs into the bit?
hunter-jumps said: aw I bet you felt so proud to see Cade's improvement!
I did! I couldn’t really “feel” anything different in our ride, but I looked at the pictures and was pleasantly surprised! The thing was, I hadn’t ridden at all between the pictures I was comparing. I was hospitalized and unable to ride for a long time due to the injuries, so I did ground work and long driving. It was nice to see that all that effort actually worked! :)
Real equestrians ride with no saddle, no bareback pad, no bridle, pants, and go galloping through meadows on a 1,000lb paint horse, controlling it with a single thin rope.
Unless you have a 17h thoroughbred who is made entirely of bone, and you break your vagina just by thinking of sitting on him. So I guess I’ll never be a real equestrian.
Riding my horse bareback is not even an option because 1.) he is a thoroughbred and I would literally destroy my entire pelvic area 2.) he is old and it would hurt his back Guess I’ll never be a real equestrian either
real equestrians ride horses and loves their horses. everything else is a personal choice, as long as it’s not obvious torture (:
Ridiculous original comment is ridiculous….
i just don’t understand why you wouldn’t ride with ANY protective gear. if this chick comes off, her brains are scrambled eggs, as are her feet, and her legs are probably torn and cut up to hell. but whatever floats your boat i guess
I ride without any protective gear pretty often these days (including today, actually) and honestly, it’s a choice. I don’t tolerate heat well as soon as a helmet goes on my head (like, eighty degrees feels hot the moment that thing goes on). Is it dangerous? Yeah, it is. Is it my choice? Yeah, it is my choice, and that of everyone else who is an informed adult, and therefore nobody’s business.
so I guess you’re not a real equestrian if you use a bareback pad, because you’re thinking of your horse’s comfort?
