Anyone knows what to do when a horse does this with his mouth?
You just put some contact on the reins and he’s immediatly like this. I was told to tighten up his noseband but I don’t see the point. Could it be a teeth problem?


I’ll definitely ask his owner about his teeth then.
About the bit, the thing is he already has a simple, soft snaffle, so if he’s not happy with that I don’t really know what to change it for?



I’m not familiar with it; but from what I can gather online it does seem interesting!

Nations Cup in Aachen, 2014.

A compilation of riders throwing their legs back when jumping?

All this riders had clear rounds at what is considered the most prestigious show in the world. There are top showjumperers with “unconventional” positions (see Roger-Yves Bost). A perfect position is not the endgame in showjumping. At some point, show jumping is about how to make your equitation work for your horse.

I wasn’t saying they were bad or anything. I do agree that the end goal is a clear round and doing what works for your horse. I just find it interesting that so many people do this at such a high level. I always see people telling beginners and lower level riders that they need to keep their legs forward and by the girth, so I just wonder why it’s okay for famous, high level riders to do it.

Ah I see! Well you do make a good point there!

When a horse/rider you like is doing his show jumping round

The US Equestrian Federation`s “invisible” conspiracy against up and coming riders who lack financial backing——(and I doubt they`ve even analyzed what they are doing)

There`s this conviction that THE way to create good riders is by sending them abroad to compete, to the tune of about 15-20,000 per horse, round trip. (and that`s just for the horse)

But who do they send? The riders with the best horses.

And how did those riders GET those best horses? Usually by being sponsored already.

SO—-The riders who GET USEF backing are the riders who already HAVE backing, which leaves the potentially top riders who lack backing even FURTHER in a hole, and it`s a hole created by THEIR OWN FEDERATION.

It`s the classic, “The rich get richer” syndrome.

If they used that money to send teams to shows like Dressage at Devon, for example, or to good US jumper shows, or to upgrade USA cross country courses, they could serve a much broader constituency.

But here`s the thing——If you say something enough times, and say it with sincerity and conviction, it tends to become true, at least in your mind, even if it isn`t true in reality. This is the current mantra:

"We need European exposure to create better riders," as if riding was like fencing, toe to toe competition. But it isn`t. It`s against the dressage test, against the course, and we have those right here at home.

But don`t tell “them” that. They think you don`t have a clue.

Sooooo this here is one of the most gorgeous PRE Andalusian stallions I have ever seen. And I would have never known about him if his owner didn’t add me on facebook :D It’s funny though because I feel like she found me through all the comments and likes I used to leave on the IALHA page….. I’m such a nut…… ANYWAY. 

His name is Festivo MR and he belongs to Doreen and Bob of Aisling SportHorses! 17.1 hands of bay beauty. 

They don’t have their own website up I don’t think but here’s their facebook page if you want to add them and drool all over your keyboard.
