I just have to say, my old horse had a habit of sticking his tongue out while we rode... or lunged... lol he just did it when he was bored, because believe me, he was definitely not in discomfort, hhaha :) .
All I can say is... those riders must begetting HUGE arm muscles. Because if I pull when im trying to do something (haha ya, the habit is pretty muchgone, but sometimes it shows up when im in stressful clinics and stuff, haha) my arm muscle get SO SORE. Lol maybe they take steroids........
