In case you were wondering just how big those fences are...

Anyone ever heard this before?

Anyone ever heard this before?

Ok. A "good" correct example of a horse in piaffe. True collection is a lowering of the horse's hindquarters to carry more weight - not pulling the horse's head in to make its neck look round. Too often riders equate collection with "going slower" which is incorrect. It's an increased loading of the hindquarters through lowering, which takes time, strength, and correct development...not whacking the horse on the cannon bones with a pole to get it to snap the front end higher than the rear end. This is a lovely photo showing correct collection, a relaxed horse, lowered angle in the haunches, horse's head in front of vertical, no severe pulling on the curb rein, rider in balanced position, parallel limbs, tail relaxed. It's terribly difficult to find correct examples, and way too easy to find bad ones...

Tamarack Hill Farm

Very few of the great riders in the world (Bruce Davidson, photo) are not ALSO great horsemen.

Bruce has told me that he makes sure that there is NOTHING having to do with horses that he can`t or won`t do better than anyone on his farm.

The poor little muggles who arrive to climb onto the tacked up and ready to ride horses will almost NEVER become great at anything that requires horsemanship. The parents who think they are doing their children a favor by strewing rose petals in their paths seriously don`t get it.

Make the little bastards work for it.

"...we must never forget, every time we sit on a horse, what an extraordinary privilege it is: to be able to unite one's body with that of another sentient being, one that is stronger, faster and more agile by far than we are, and at the same time, brave, generous, and uncommonly forgiving." ~ William Steinkraus, Olympic equestrian.

Schooling Shows Are Growing, And The A-Circuit Should Be Worried

I’ve always had a personal rule for determining if I’m ready to show, and it has nothing to do with my riding. If I’m more worried about how much the four faults from a dropped rail just cost me in show fees, I can’t afford to be there. This rule has kept me from showing for most of my life....
