photo of the day (every which way but loose)

I’m learning that in riding, it’s all about balance. And at Clare’s vaulting class, where the girls are essentially riding barefoot and bareback, the goal is the same, only more so.

In order for Clare to get a better sense of her balance, Kirsten had Clare riding faced the wrong way and stretched out over Piper’s hind end. Clare’s first reaction the the request was, “You want me to what?” but then she tried it and relaxed into the experience of being stretched out over Piper’s hindquarters. By the time her ride was over she was beaming and braiding his tail.
