Poor horses! They can Barley see! And it looks ugly!

A good rider can hear his horse speak to him, a great rider can hear his horse whisper, but a bad rider won't hear his horse even if it screams at him. Millie and Archie my two beautilful ponies.

Regardless it is the whole fact that a horse SHOULD NOT be put in a position like this whether it is just a second or thirty minutes. Never should a horse be forced into such a frame regardless of what you're trying to achieve. That is not true training, and does not get true results of TRUE relaxation & suppleness.

Did you read the rest of my post? Or VelvetsAB's post?
As I've never tried it myself or done research on the matter, I believe I'm in no position to comment on whether or not it's right. I am certain that I've received emails from the Equestrian Federation of Australia regarding FEI rules about warm up and hyperflexion, which have stated that it can be used as long as it's used saftely and for no longer than a set amount of time throughout the warm up. I would find you the email but my computer is very close to running out of battery. As these are only pictures, how do we know whether or not these people are within the time frame?
Let me repeat, I believe I'm in no position to comment on whether or not it's right.

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

'Adelinde Cornelissen and Parzival practice before the eyes of the Dutch national coach Sjef Janssen at the stadium in Kentucky.'

That is a very innocent caption :(

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

What is the point of pulling the head to the chest anyway? It doesn't look very pretty in 1st place (if that's the main reason to do it).

That horse JUST got rung out for having blood on its mouth from biting its tongue in the test. She got a 9.745%.
I wondered why she rode exactly like Anky, stiffly. She rides with Sjef.

Well she got what was coming to her, Rolkur gives you bad karma!!!

I thought that when they bend over, in response to corinowalk's question, that they are putting the horse's tongue back in his/her mouth. I've also heard that when a horse sticks his tongue out that that, it means extreme discomfort.

Go figure.

^^^ I was afraid that might have been what that was, after watching that sickening Blue Tongue video.
SMH...such a shame.
