LOL I saw this when we had the 'rolkur' thread up, and when searching for pics this came up.
Its like every misconception people have about dressage riders rolled in to one!

You know a responsive car doesn't have to be pulled in and the tires don't exaggerate their rolling, to work well. I wish I had had the opportunity to really feel a horse on the bit before I got my first horses in 1985. My "Corporal" (Arabian, 1982-2009, RIP) was so generous that he let me force his headset, but willingly flexed afterwards for me and I had lots of fun riding him collected and playing at sidepassing--THAT was when I truly felt the energy go from the hindquarters through to the bit. (Galloping messages between coimmanders at CW events didn't hurt either.) I remember taking off with a message that was almost immediately changed--I was the first canter stride out, from a standstill, then I halted--his back legs slid down to the hocks to stop him--THAT felt weird!--but he was responsive.
Thanks for sharing! =D

Nope, GH, I gonna take a bet with you ($10 + ice cream) that it's unlikely. Firstly because the elbow - hand - rein are all under different angles. Secondly because the hair net obviously out-weight the dressage queen in pic. :rofl:

I figured, given the foot position, she had forgotten she had switched to her lightweight spurs as well:-)
