This season, the hunters are wearing tan, the dressage boots are a few inches higher, the western pleasure riders are abandoning their bedazzlers and pre-two is the new three!
Ya, ok, I have no idea if any of that is true, but it certainly seems like we’ve talked about a LOOOOT of horses being started “coming two” in 2012. And this one is no exception. And hey, he’s uber sweaty! Awesome. And being ridden down a cement road. Spectacular. And having his mouth hauled on. Fantastic! Who could ask for anything more?
Provided nothing goes wrong with this little guy’s musculoskeletal system as a result of his upbringing, he’d probably make a very cute mount. He certainly seems to be calm on the road and with traffic – although who knows about the rest of his training if the rider’s blatant overuse of the bit is any indication…
Why does it seem to be so difficult for these “trainers” to get it through their thick heads that their investment will be worth more, long term, if they let it do just a little bit of growing up. But then, on the other side of that, I suppose, is to hope to hell the horse doesn’t break down before ya sell ‘em quick and turn some sort of profit.
Ps. the write up on youtube states the horse is a stud! And the hits just keep on a-comin!
