When your horse doesn’t approve of your distance choice – VIDEO Break

  Finding a good distance to a jump is no easy task. As you are approaching a fence at a decent speed, you’re trying to steer your horse, balance your horse, have good equitation and on top of all that you need to look for that elusive correct distance. We all miss our distances some times and usually our horses tolerate it. But this horse was not so pleased with his rider’s choice of distance and made that clear.

Cross-country save of the week – VIDEO Break

  We have all been there, clinging on to the sides of our horses at an event. Sometimes we successfully climb out way back into the saddle and other times we, unfortunately, hit the dirt… This rider wins the save of the week and quite possibly the year. She somehow managed to jump a fence on one side of her horse and bounce her way back into the saddle in less than a stride. Maybe she is also a gymnast?     🔊 • Envoyez 📩 vos chutes en DM💙 Taguez vos amis cavaliers ⤵ #horsefail #horsefails A post shared…
