Hi, my names Hayley :-)
I'm 17 and I live on a small island in England.
I own two talented mares - Enigma, who is a 5yo 15.2 Welsh D X TB Bay mare and Bouncer, a 6yo 16.1(ish) Sport Horse Rose Grey mare. I have competed Bouncer BSJA for over a year now and have just started doing the same with Enigma.
I'm looking forward to the upcoming year ahead with both mares and seeing where they will take me.
Hope you enjoy my blog and just message if you have any questions!
headset isnt natural..? without a bridle this horse in almost smelling the ground
Ok so hopefully I wont get shit for saying this but I find the walk and canter extremely strange, I thought it was walking before I realised it was trotting and the canter was oh-so-close to four beats. I mean the horse is beautiful and the headset seems fine to me, It’s just I have never seen a horse move like that in the field, if my horse was moving like that I would think something was wrong. Also it seems, and I thought this for a lot of western horses, on it’s forehand. Before someone snaps my head off and takes this the wrong way I am simply saying this as I don’t know anything about western and would like to be better educated. Is this the natural movement for this horses breed type? I can’t figure out what breed it is, I want to say QH - I am rubbish with breeds - but that will be a generalisation.
i know this sounds really harsh and weird but its canter looks like something a horse would do as its about to just collapse in agony
I totally agree, not trying to be rude at all but it does look very un-natural. The horse almost looks like an old man? If you get me…
