how wonderful does Parzival look in this video?! :D
So this is the video from where those photos of Adelinde in the jumping saddle are from… I’M SO CONFUSED.
Albert voorn (the show jumper) gave adelinde a lesson emphasising lightness in the hand and reactions. He put her in a jumping saddle to get a different feel on Parzival and the other horse. Most especially in the canter. You can find the article on the “Bit” website (its in Dutch) and there was an article in the dressage division (dressur) of bit which I can’t find.

I just find that I REALLY don’t get along with mare-ish mares. If they don’t act like a gelding (ie, they don’t squeal, pin their ears at everyone, snarl, ovulate in general) then I cannot deal. But the mare I’m grooming next year (my perfect baby girl) is actually such a perfect mare and I love her PLUS SHE IS SO SNUGGLY. She’s the only horse I ever let get really snuggly with me. And she loves bananas. And she almost died on me this summer. So I’m attached to her.
Who has sacrificed something in order to follow their dreams and achieve goals? Who on tumblr has made a huge gigantic, gargantuan change in their whole life, be it financial, education or career oriented in order to go after something they desperately want….
I very nearly quit my degree in order to continue on with my boss. In the end, we decided I was more valuable to them with a degree so I’m finishing my last year now. But once this is done, I’m getting on the first plane to Europe to go meet up with them as they get ready for WEG.
I gave up on my social life when I was about 12 and never looked back. I don’t regret all the missed dances, Halloweens, school trips, none of it. And I’m moving across the country so I can work with my boss. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but it is. And I would give up everything I already have if it meant I could do this for the rest of my life.
But honestly, I love them all. That being said, I typically gravitate towards geldings/stallions because I get along with them better (I like to think it’s the dyke thing. We both understand the greatness of ladies) but a good mare is worth more than a great stallion. They’re just hard to find.
But this summer I fell in love with two absolutely stupendous mares at my job and I’m really looking forward to getting to work with them again next year.
So basically, stallions except in the case of a mare that acts like a gelding and has more talent than god.
