Happy Easter weekend everyone!
What better way to spend your holiday time than to watch, read or spend time with horses? They are exceptional animals. They're so gentle, elegant and brave...
As I was watching some videos in my YouTube subscriptions, I came across this one. I was a little intimidated by it being 7 hours long, but decided to skim through it quickly to watch any of my favourite riders competing in the FEI World Cup. And boy am I glad I did!
At about the 4:02:00 mark, a musical ride began and I was instantly excited to watch it. Not only do you need to be a good rider to participate in a musical ride (let alone a musical ride for the FEI World Cup!), you need to be on a well rounded horse that gets along with other horses and that isn't afraid of motorbikes.
Yes, I said motorbikes. Dirt bikes to be exact. These horses were doing a musical ride paired with a dirt bike while moving through a series of movements to music. It's quite a sight to see.
Sure there might have been a few mistakes, but that's not an easy thing to do. Those riders, horses and dirt bikers deserve quite a bit of recognition for their efforts and skills.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Easter weekend and that you are all enjoying yourselves. Thank you for reading Pure Horse Sense. I wish you all the best.
Until next time, happy riding!
