(Sarcasm could apply in this post, be warned…)
I mean, this picture is about the perfect example of what dressage is these days. Anna here, won the world cup with about 80%, she is our present national champion and I mean, look at that. Don’t we all know why, just from looking at that picture?
Look at how perfectly balanced her horse is, how easily it carries itself, how it raises the back and places most of its weight on its hind legs, how unforced the head position is, a little in front of the vertical line, how gently the rider is using her spurs, and first and foremost, note the almost none existent contact she has to the reins, hardly pulling on the double bit at all. I mean, Anna sure is, like the Danish Equestrian Federation states, an example to follow!
Look at the well shaped neckline of the horse, if anyone were in doubt! This is a perfectly trained dressage horse, anyone who dares say differently knows nothing of horses, and should keep their mouth shut, and stop criticizing the professionals, because clearly, I mean CLEARLY, they know what they are doing!
We have got another picture here, sorry I can’t upload it, because it’s a gif, not a jpeg, but follow the link;
Awe inspiring, right?
Not legalized animal abuse at all.
And the album, if anyone wants to see more, I haven’t looked it through, I really don’t need to…
I could be wrong though. It’s a possibility. It always is.
