This video is AWESOME.

No saddle, no bridle, no spurs.

Just a girl, her horse, and a rope.

To all the people who think that teaching their horse to rear = pesade. Notice how when most horses rear, one fore sticks out, as they lose balance… not in the classic movements.

The classical movement of Pesade(and the lower, less rear-like movement of Levade) is based off of the utmost collection of the hind end. The collection and strength of the hind end for a horse to settle onto their hocks as they do in Levade, and then stand up as they do in Pesade, is very, very high. 

In ‘trick training’ a horse to rear, we do not teach the horse the collection onto the hind legs. We merely teach the horse to ‘jump’ or ‘launch’ their front end into the air and essentially say ‘do whatever you need to find balance’.

In the Pesade movement, these horses are at the pinnacle of balance in this movement and are in complete control of themselves(there are failures, don’t ever count that out it happens.)

In a trick-trained rear, the horses are throwing themselves into a sudden balance, which turns into a loss of balance.

captainofmysoul said: We do? I was not aware of this, in what context are you talking about? Maybe hackies do it?

I have no idea, it popped up on YouTube as recommended video of people dying their horses manes, tails and bodies. Like, they literally took this one light chestnut mare and made her golden-chocolatey colored. And they took black dye and made this bay horse have larger black points on his legs. 

It only shows up on Australian you tubes so I assumed someone would know lol
