Thank you Allison for showing your releases, much appreciated! Very true about what release you must do - in accordance to the fence and to the horse. Thanks for pointing that out.
. I am an eventer, so equitation is, what equitation does, IMO.
Love this quote! Couldn't be any truer! I was just having this discussion with my Bestie who competes Prelim about Equitation and she was saying that NA has become quite obsessed with this word. We both agree that there is a fine line between being functional, and being "pretty". She expresse to look at many of the Upper Level Eventers - they aren't perching or posing, nor do they look "pretty" most of the time, but they sure are solid and functional per fence, per what the horse needs at that particular moment in time - and they get it done!
