When it comes to beauty, we all know that horses are really competitive as it is in general a beautiful animal. There are a lot of different breeds who are considered to be the most beautiful ones in the world, however, this is very relative because different people have different favorite breeds. Some of the most beautiful ones that are without a doubt, liked by almost every single person with an objective view for what is beautiful are definitely Friesians, Arabians, Thoroughbreds, Gypsy Vanner, Belgian Drafts etc.
It is undeniable that these breeds are visually stunning and their unique beauty is one of the most important factors that makes them expensive as well. All the rankings done on the Internet categorize these breeds among the most demanded and consequently, most expensive ones. For almost all of them, a mid-income family would probably need to take a loan in order to buy one, which shows how expensive they are.
You should feel very lucky if you have had the opportunity to ride one. Not only horses, but ponies are also very beautiful, it is more of a cute beauty compared to a horse’s one that I like to a sassy beauty. In the case of this pony in the video below, I think he got them both. Together with his owner, they are participating on a trailer course.
Trail Course is a rodeo event in which a horse and rider attempt to complete a series of obstacles in the fastest time. It combines the horse’s athletic ability and the horsemanship skills of a rider in order to safely and successfully maneuver a horse through a series of five obstacles. The rider must remain mounted the entire time. It can be somehow more difficult than trail competition as it requires more speed rather than style.
Apparently, Pie is one of the best at it and the way how he passes through those obstacles, even passing through an obstacle backward is very impressive. Not every horse can do that. They both make it look so effortlessly but it is definitely not that easy. Please a have a look and you will be able to understand what I am talking about.
This is for your coffee break as you have to have the sound to admire how THE PIE does everything in time to the music! This is back down memory lane when we did this kind of thing together. Now I'm in the office and he's in the field. What a WASTE! We need to get OUT THERE again!!! Join Us!
