Ohhh aaaannnnnnaaaa…. @annanell #horse #lusitano #equestrian #dressage

Please tell me I’m not the only one that sees this picture as an optical illusion. Doesn’t look like the horses legs are in the ground.

You know your an equestrian when our phone autocorrects “ew” to “eq”.

THIS

maybe because ew is a synonym for my eq

i just laughed out loud jenna omg

You know you are an equestrian when you try to write house and write horse instead.

I love seeing ‘unconventional’ riders and watching how they make it work, this guy is 19/20, freakishly tall, and this horse is absolutely craaaaazy (seriously watch the video)

In the video the horse goes around with its head straight up in the air, kicking and lashing its tail. Talk about
unhappyhorses
.. If we saw a horse in a dressage arena doing the same thing we’d wonder what was bothering him, but because it’s a jumper we call it crazy and pass it off. Just my thoughts.

Yikes. That video is awful.


I will say, in the video the horse looked pretty unhappy. I’m not about to make excuses for the rider because I wasn’t there, but I’ve often wondered how most jumper horses can act so calmly with so many loud people and bright lights in a grand prix. Maybe the horse was nervous because of the atmosphere? But again, I’m not familiar with the horse or rider.

I agree that looks like an unhappy horse, not a hot horse. It really bothers me how hard the rider seems to come down on his back after every jump.

Anonymous asked: Quick question: so i grew up owning quarter horses and for a while went without horses, i got a saddlebred around a year and a half ago and i noticed her back was pretty swayed- i didnt complain my friends family breeds them and she was a gift to me they had said it was normal and the other horses they own and bred look the same, i was wondering if that was normal and maybe im not used to that breed compared to a quarter horse?????


Answer:

americansaddlebreds:

My first horse was swayback, it’s not unusual in Saddlebreds. It’s just the way they’re built makes them more prone to having a swayback I believe :)

Its the way they are ridden. Thats the reason:)

Combined with the shifted center of gravity! :) 

It has very little to do with the way they are ridden, if that were the case all saddleseat horses would be sway backed, and they clearly aren’t. In saddlebreds lordosis is mostly genetic.
