I love watching these classes at the ag shows I go to. A lot of the ASH's in my area always win the sporting classes. They're very talented. |
We're actually looking for a new horse, and we've looked at 3 ASH'S. We're kinda unsure, just because I'd have to get a new saddle, and I've noticed the style they ride is ever-so slightly forward. And plus its a breed we've never had so we don't really know.
I love the whip-cracking. My old horse used to just jump whenever a twig crackled. I could never do anything like that on him.
And yep, it takes some time to teach yourself AND the horse how to do the whipcracking safely and calmly!
|That was an awesome vid . I especially like that many of the classes require the horse to slow down and do loose rein work after the speed portion. That takes a lot more balanced training than just teaching a horse to go fast.|
