Well, I just joined, and saw her post. I know a little about hippodrome as I was on that "TEAM". ( My daughter rides hippodrome.) I hope THC has improved since 2007, but if you practice something wrong, you will always do it wrong.

The picture of the paint horse, that girl is doing it right. The momentum should push you, you have to be ahead of the motion.

I never got to do it, sadly, I have Rheumatoid arthritis and it puts tremendous strain on the ankles, knees and hips....

Omg! I was looking down through the posts and I saw this one! That's crazy. In that video, I had only been hippodroming a couple of months. I have never gotten anyone to take a vid of me hippodroming since then unfortunately, so I can't post anything new. However, I will say that it has improved a lot. I normally don't hippodrome performances because my horse is too spooky to do that safely, but I do almost every parade, as long as the pavement isn't too wet (his shoes are quite slick). I've done the Kentucky Derby parade, the Indy 500 parade, and many, many, many local small parades hippodroming.

Susan Crumrine- what do you mean by "TEAM"? That's funny because I bet I believe the same thing you do when you said this.

Any time you get that many females in one place, the fur is going to fly.
I felt like people were seriously backstabbing, two faced, and all that.

NO FUN.

How cool! We rode those same parades! Heck, I hippodromed those parades! I Hippodromed the Equine Affair 2004.I do believe that was even before Ginger started teaching you to ride. I rode Gingers little black mare in the opening ceremony for the arena in Springfield. You rode that too, I never noticed your little gelding being spooky there.

Gingers team is a great experience, but it tends to get to little girls heads. I have seen it many many times.

Hmmm... I am trying to think of who you are...
Prince isn't spooky at everything. But if something scary jumps outside the arena, and I am hippodroming, there would be no way to stay up there. I would go down, and go down big, lol.

Straighten those legs! Im a trick rider and hippodrom on drill teamad those legs need to be straight if they buck just go forward or stay up there, we had one when we stood up he bucked but he was used in rodeos we just had to lock knees and stay up and ride it out. If your feet are in the hippodrome strap correct you wont come out of it
