fucking animal abuse

This is the ugliest, sloppiest jumping I have ever seen in my life.

What is this girl doing with her life 😳 even her hair is a freaking mess
What a saint of a horse

for when we feel like bad riders….  I agree with sarah… what a treasure of a horse

Please get off his mouth and stop yanking him around then hitting him with the whip, ugh

That was gross. Someone slap me if I ever look like that.

Honestly I hate seeing riders at the Grand Prix level do this shit. It’s dangerous, unprofessional, and really doesn’t showcase the good in our sport.

someone needs to teach this chick what an independent seat is

oh god it hurts

Pulley reins, chicken elbows, LITERALLY HOLDING ON TO HER HORSE’S FACE TO STAY ON, unstable seat…this horse is incredibly tolerant.

Wow

own a mare, have done so for ten years

leased a mare for a year

been riding mostly mares all my life

never really attributed wm’s attitudes to her bein a pissy mare. fact is, i think it was other people telling me she was just being mareish. instead of, her protesting bad handling/bad riding. bc lawdy knows there was that in abundance when i was younger and first learning.

she’s been markedly patient with me

This video is AWESOME.

No saddle, no bridle, no spurs.

Just a girl, her horse, and a rope.

Q

Anonymous asked:

Is there a reason why riders on gaited horses lean further forward? I swear, in every video of a gaited horse show (both western or saddle seat) the riders are leaning forward and have heavily slouched shoulders.

A

When you say “slouched position” on a gaited horse I immediately think of mens park saddle and performance horse classes for saddlebreds and Tennessee walkers. Dont quote me on this, but I think that certain classes are judged on just the horses movement and way of going so the riders (most if not, all men) are going to be riding in a not so pretty looking fashion.

Those hooves are deplorable.

Yes, I know this photo has been going around for a while. But I wanted to bring up something really important about these kinds of joints (ginglymus or hinge joints). Take your finger. Try to move it forward and back. It works, right? It glides smoothly, providing you don’t have joint deterioration or damage. Now try to move it side to side, and you’ll see that it will move just barely but resists and becomes uncomfortable at a certain point. That is because those joints in your finger are ginglymus or hinge joints, and they move on only one plane (forward and backward). Now imagine walking on that imbalanced finger, like your horse would. Ouch.

*This* is why those who say “imbalance is natural” to criticize balanced/corrective barefoot trims are wrong. The *only* way imbalance is natural is if the bone itself is deformed, and even that is often a product of poor management early in the horse’s development. But imbalance that involves uneven joint spacing is so, so, so wrong and leads to long term deterioration of the joints and premature death in equines.

Just a tad annoyed that Adelinde Cornelissen miss heavy hands got a whooping 79.6% on her test at WEG

I was pretty pissed off when Russian rider Ljubov Kochetova kept her horse’s nose at his chest for a solid 5-10 mins after her round in the warm up ring
Not impressed Ljubov, not impressed.
Photos are from today at Palgrave

This girl rides like shit and gets worse every time I watch her.
Poor creature.

sigh

And why, pray, did no-one intervene? Fucking FEI, honestly. Just enough to keep people happy on the surface; but not enough to cause ripples that might disturb the delicate balance and upset the competitors. They really are useless at enforcing the rules.

I absolutely hate how she rides as well, I remember watching multiple grand prixs and commenting on how rough of a rider she is. Plus I feel a grand prix rider shouldn’t be using a kimberwicke…  scienceofcatastrophe:
