I just moved to Canada recently and Canadians have their milk in a bag.

It’s actually so much better than cartons because it makes less waste and doesn’t take up a lot of space in your fridge!image

I FUCKING HATE MILK IN A BAG

WHO THE FUCK THOUGHT OF THIS IDEA

Beezie Madden was the lone ranger in the victory lap after the show jumping medals were presented at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Her mount, Cortes C, was the only well-behaved horse one the U.S. team in the ceremony, so McLain Ward, Lucy Davis and Kent Farrington stayed on the ground with coach Robert Ridland.Photo © Nancy Jaffer

This annoys me so fucking much. Your horse can jump 6 feet, whoopee, but you can do anything else with it. It bothers me even more when it’s a horse competing on an international level. THIS IS NOT OK. If your horse can’t handle basic things like walking calmly beside you, standing still while mounting, etc I honestly don’t give a shit how high it can jump. Take it back to square one and teach it how to fucking behave. Bless Beezie.

I love you

It just drives me fucking crazy.

sometimes i just wonder about whether or not tumblr equestrians have any brain power. 
being trained /= taking away every bit of spark and life a horse has. horse training isn’t just making every horse a reactionless robot, it’s learning to respect their needs and how they operate as well. it’s a balance, so yeah if they jump 6’ but get hot RUNNING WITH A GROUP OF OTHER HORSES then i don’t see a goddamn thing wrong with that.
in fact i think it’s a pretty damn normal reaction for a horse to get excited if 10 other horses are galloping around it and really doesn’t say a thing about training….
i honestly tried to not reblog this but jesus christ

It’s about respect, from both sides. Yeah, you have to respect your horse’ instincts. But your horse NEEDS to respect you. I mean, god, that animal is 1200 pounds! If it doesn’t have respect for people it’s gonna kill someone! I mean, my horse can kick some serious ass xcountry, but you best believe her cute little self stand nice and still in that start box. I have seen horses hot as crap in a start box, and it absolutely blows my mind that people thinks that’s okay, in any discipline! When I put my leg on she goes forward, but If I want her to canter calmly, or even stand still in a lineup for that matter, she better! Period, the end.

holy high jump!

I was there and I’m not gonna lie watching the Puissance in person is legitimately terrifying

"Seeing the perfect distance" inspiration that I’m going to save for looking at later.

George Morris speaking truth as usual 💖💖 let your riding ability make you stand out. Not a neon saddle pad!

literally shut up george morris is 200 years old of course he’s not going to like the idea of colorful tack but if I want to put neon shit on my horse you bet your rump i’m going to do it. the day that i let old men dictate what i do is the day that i spontaneously combust okay

George Morris is def right! When I step into a &#8220;show&#8221; ring, I better not have a colored saddle pad on or a neon show shirt&#8230; That said, I&#8217;ll put anything on my horse to ride at home or go cross country&#8230; But, there&#8217;s no need to trash George Morris. Especially since he&#8217;s been around to see so many different styles, so he prob knows what looks best
