When the water is really cold – VIDEO Break

There is nothing more brutal than going swimming in cold weather. There are two approaches to getting into cold water. You can either take all day and creep in inch by inch or you can just take the plunge and leap right in. This horse went for the leaping right in approach and took its poor rider with it…     😂😂😂😂😂😂✅✅follow us ✅✅ ❤️#twohearts ❤️ #Horse #Instahorse #Instahorses #Horses #Horsesofinstagram #horseaddict #Horseriding #Myhorse #Horselover #Love #Horsehead #Horselove #Horseoftheday #Horsejumping #Horserider #Horsegirl #Horselove #Horsephotography #Pferd #reiten #horsemanship #Horselovers #tagafriend #smsporthorses #funny #riding #rider #picoftheday #tagsforlikes #horsepower 🌍www.sm-sporthorses.com🌍 A post shared…

Final jumps are the hardest – VIDEO Break

  Why is it that the last jump on course is always the hardest one to clear? Probably a result of nerves or perhaps riders just get casual when they see the finish flags in sight. This rider really had a tough time getting over the final fence… But I think if it were at a show she would’ve made it through the finish flags still somewhat on her horse! What’s the worst final jump story you have?     #equestrian #equestrianfail #horse #equestrianlife #equestrianfails A post shared by Eda Öztürk (@eda_ozturk_) on Sep 25, 2016 at 2:36am PDT

Is this the world’s bravest photographer? – VIDEO Break

  When you think of dangerous careers photography probably doesn’t pop into your mind. But this photographer has found a rather risky way to capture horses in action. I certainly would not want to be laying flat on my stomach in a field with horses fighting nearby… Perhaps he has more trust in horses than your average rider. I like to get up close and personal with animals. I was lying flat on my stomach with a wide-angle lens aimed at these two wild horses when they reared up to challenge each other for dominance over a herd of mares…

12 photos that’ll take you back to your first lesson barn

  We all learned to ride somewhere and for most of us, it was at a lesson barn. When I was younger I spent most of my summers participating in and working at riding camps and I’m surely not alone. Sometimes when things get crazy in the horse world I like to reminisce on the days when things with horses were simpler and just pure fun. Take a moment to scroll through these photos and remember how your riding career started out…   Horse camp. Bobbing for apples, Madeline vs Eclipse. Madeline won. #mygirlmadeline A post shared by Dena Cox (@3dogsandagirl)…

Why you should always pass left to left – VIDEO Break

  Passing left to left while riding horses is a must. Think of what chaos roads would be if people drove on whichever side they were in the mood to drive on. The same thing applies to riding arenas! This is what happens when you don’t pass left to left with ample room not to frighten your mount. Kudos to the horses for handling things so well and avoiding a collision…     This is by @leya_m 🐴🦄🌸 no hate🙅🏼🚫 – Tag your friends💕 – #failfriday #horsefails #horsefail #horseridingfail #horseridingfails #horseriding #fail #fails #horse #horsefalls #horsefall A post shared by…
