I had to cancel going - and I want to see what I missed and see my friends go.....this is SOOOO FRUSTRATING....and the Pony ring is just fine on my feed - but nothing from inside!!! And it was working PERFECTLY all morning.
The belief behind it is that it pushes the horse infront of your leg. It doesn't really work, but who knows
Well, yeah, I know it's done to open up the horse's stride and create impulsion, but I don't think most kids (or adults for that matter) know why they're doing it or what it's used for. I see it at local shows in short stirrup.
I just wonder how/why it went from the jumper ring to the hunter ring. Or why on earth you'd do it in the eq ring. Isn't it the whole point of equitation to be able to do everything invisibly? Maybe I'm just getting old and crabby.
Did any one see Caroline Crews and Hallelujah? I switched screens and missed the beginning of their first trip then my computer decided to freeze and unfreeze during their entire second trip... ugh!! Anyway, can someone tell me how they did? They are a friend of a friend and she is a sweetheart! What a GREAT class overall! Hat's off to all these pony jocks!
