My dad put up my cello concerto (Cello Concerto for 2 Cellos in g minor by Vivaldi) on YouTube. We played it with my orchestra accompanying us. It sounded wonderful when I was playing it, but I went back to listen later on and heard ALL the mistakes. People who told me it was great gave me false hope.
You see this shit? I don’t care how long you’ve been riding, how balanced your seat can be, if you train a horse in rolkur, you are the scum of the earth. You cannot call yourself a true equestrian when you put your horses health in jeopardy for a blue ribbon, whilst glamorizing rolkur and making it even more apparent in the show ring.
I completely agree. This is insane. It was shown that it does NOT help the horse develop a good neck and was also shown to restrict the horse’s airway. It makes me mad to see people that do these things.
My trainer said today was the best I had ever ridden, and that if I keep it up, I might be able to go to a big show!
