I really believe that some horses and riders are just meant to be together. Like the rider might not be the best but the horse goes better for that rider than with a more experienced rider. They want to work harder for their rider and they are just happier. When a horse and rider are meant to be it just shines through in their performance. There is minimal conflict and you can tell they are a true team. It’s a love affair of the most artistic and dramatic kind.

I don’t think people realise how scary horse riding can actually be until you’re up on a horse that’s locked and loaded whilst you’re trying desperately to hold them together but you know eventually they’re going to explode and there’s nothing you can do about it.

A horse who loves to jump gathers toward the fence with a trembling electricity so patent that some horsemen say they can feel it in the roots of their hair. As the horse makes his final approach to a fence, it matters not how much the rider wants or hopes or prays. It matters not what whip he carries or how often he nudges with sharp spurs. The horse who jumps well jumps for the joy of flight; the rider he brings along with him receives a bountiful gift that is completely undeserved. 
-  -Elizabeth Letts (The Eighty-Dollar Champion)

My favorite animal is back in the show ring ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Wow! Where is this?

how many people did you have to sacrifice for this horse to get so white 

Not gonna lie, every time I look at this I think the horse is fake for a moment it’s so white.

p.s. sorry I haven’t been posting anything lately, I’ve been super busy with exams and revision! 

But my last exam is on the 16th June, so expect normal service to be resumed after that :)

Mary King’s wonderful save on the XC course at Badminton!

OH MY GOD, THAT WAS AMAZING!

- Her horse continued to stay balanced and pull his legs through
- She had every reason to fall off the front
- She was thinking about stopping before the next jump before she was even back on
- SHE PROCESSED IT ALL SO QUICK SHE DIDN’T CROSS HER TRACKS
- Even after something that might have dented the horses confidence, it still jumped that skinny from a crazy angle.

Queen.

If you don’t think that Mary King is an absolute equestrian goddess then you’re wrong

TUMBLR EQUESTRIANS! My friend’s hose has been stolen from Dick Elliot Performance Horses out of a padlocked corral. The horse has one sock on the right hind leg and a long blaze and snip clearly pictured. She is 17 years old and 15.2hh Could be sold as a rodeo or ranch horse
Spread this! If someone sees this horse, it belongs to Emily DuCan in Bend, Oregon. IF YOU FIND THIS HORSE CALL THE POLICE. Message me, kenzie-sweetpea, and I can tell Emily
