    This is a PHENOMENAL example of the SRS training from those days I am surprised no one else has commented on it thus far! Oh, they must think that the horses are above the bit or something
    Horses don't lie.

    Poll = highest point - check
    Not behind the vertical - check
    Curb shanks not horizontal - check
    No strings of drool - check
    Relaxed and "happy athletes" - check

    Just like the rules say. Love it. Thanks for posting this, Mike!

    After you've been here awhile, you find out there are much more important things to talk about.

    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    That was nice, but I actually found this one in the same album to be ever more entertaining.

    What a truly lovely spot in the afternoon! Thanks for posting that. And you know, those are lovely LITTLE horses, probably in the 15 hh range.
