it is a timed event. where horse and rider run a weaving pattern through 6 poles.

Peggysue 11-19-2010 05:35 PM

6 poles set in striaght line 21' apart and first pole is 21' from timer

speed event and those horses FLY

That rider is a champion horse whipper.

Peggysue 11-19-2010 06:29 PM

her whip never touches the horse fromt he looks of it ... she is just swinging her arm basically

Spastic_Dove 11-19-2010 06:59 PM

Yep, she's not really hitting the horse with anything from the looks of it.

She does do the annoying kick-so-hard-your-butt-comes-out-of-the-saddle that I hate. But overall she kept out of the horses way and it was a good ride.

But my point was it showed what pole bending is :P

yeah I hate that kick until your butt flies too but most of the "better" ones do it LOL prob why iwas never any good at it

thanks Spastic Dove! that really helps!! And thank you TurnNBurn625!!

she does look like she's hitting the horse, but she isn't. lol

yeah, I didn't like the kicking in that video. If I were that horse I'd buck her off. - My horsey and I only trot pole-bending,.. and maybe canter that last stretch. I'm not into speed events.
