There's rumors of her quitting riding because the horses are really starting to scare her.
Wow, that would be a welcome change, lol.
Have you seen how Anky has recently taken up reining??? I guess those dead headed QHs are more her speed, lol. (not that all reining horses are dead headed, but the one I saw her ride seem to be!) Anky van Grunsven Official Website

Her rear and her rein hand are bouncing in unison, lol.
Werth and a reining guy at a demo. Werth is also bounce-bounce-bouncing with her horse's head over flexed, so it's not just Anky Viddler.com - Isabell-Reining - Uploaded by dressagedoc
They switch horses at minute 10! Isabell's horse looked a lot happier with the cowboy on his back, lol. Werth was having a heck of time, couldn't get the horse to slide or spin and was holding on to the horn at one point, lol.
