I know nothing about Western riding at all, and I am so glad that I saw that half trot, half canter gait on this board before seeing it in real life, I would have been asking the owner what on earth was wrong with their horse.

LOL A friend of mine used to raise pidgeons and thought they were "majestic". *snort* The only ones I liked were the rolling pidgeons. If you scare them, they can't properly fly, they just do clumsy flappy backflips.


Sorry about the video quality, I couldn't really find a better video. They make me laugh. Can you imagine having to deal with those in the ring??

Pilot error. I can't imagine what the people on the rail were thinking.

I actually was a little impressed, because he isn't just shuffling along, he's actually doing a proper trot in the back and canter in the front. You gotta admit, that does take a fair amount of talent!

Talent! Yes. That's what it is.

at the rolling pidgeons. That's awesome.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

;) It's all in the spin baby. "Refusal? Nah, he didn't refuse. We were doing an impromtu sliding stop practice!"

And re - the pidgeons - they are totally hilarious. It totally looks like they've been injured if you don't know what's going on!
