Oh hi I haven’t been on here in forever.
It makes it RULL HARD to dream shop for a house with acreage for a horse IF YOU DON’T SHOW ME WHAT THE DAMN BARN LOOKS LIKE
Debbie McDonald and Brentina
2008 USEF Festival of Champions
This is their “Respect” freestyle!
For anyone who believes riding is brute strength - they need to look no further than Debbie to demonstrate how effective a rider can be without being forceful. Brentina was an absolutely massive horse, and there was no way Debbie could manhandle her into doing this flawless of a test. Absolute harmony.
MY LESSON WAS AMAZING TODAY!!!!!!
My no stirrups posting is finally strong enough to make a good circuit without feeling like I’m dying.
My sitting trot is badass. (It helps to have a loping quarter horse of a hunter lesson horse)
We did transitions transitions transitions and then trot poles in two-point AND! full on crest-release
jumping position (that was hard and I sucked at it)
I wonder what I need to add to my exercise regimen to make that “laying across the horse” position feel stronger? I’m already doing one jillion crunches? And leg lifts, And stretches, And more stretches, And wall sits. And bridges. And push ups.
