I'm not really sure of what to think of this picture. The quality isn't great, it's a little blurry and you can't see the horse's eye which probably bothers me most.
But for some reason I still like it... ;)

Just some explanations because I was too lazy to look up all the words yesterday ;)
The horse in the photo is a vaulting horse during training. It has a surcingle on it's back and two pairs of side reins. This is simply because the vaulters were taking turns vaulting in walk and canter. So they used the shorter side reins for canter and the longer lauffer rein (I think that's what they're called) for the walk.
I'm not sure about the length of the side reins, I'm not an expert on horses or vaulting. In the photo the horse is standing, waiting for the vaulters to take off the shorter side reins and holding it's head very low, so the side reins do look very short.

I'm sorry, this is not a stock image. If you want to use it as a reference for a drawing it woul be okay, but no photomanipulations, please.
Thank you for asking, though! Maybe there is a picture in my stock folder you could use?

Rollkur... Uhg.
Haha, lovely shot though! Really captures the moment and the work with all the sweat on the horse.

I agree... Lol I HATE when people tie down horses heads, like how would you like it if someone tied your head DOWN while your trying to excerise? My pony gets round perfectly fine without any type of martengale/side reins or tie down.

I like this. It kind of shows how loyal horses can be with human, though all the stuff they have to wear they will not disobey! Stunning and definately a :+fav: !

Thank you very much! Yes, it is amazing what horses do for us sometimes without snapping...
