A Touch of Class!

A Dressage Round with More Than A Touch of Class

I fell in love with this Haflinger and his 'oh-so-cool' young rider.  These outtakes were posted by Behind the Bit who commented about the "talented but sometimes naughty pony skillfully piloted around the ring." She graciously allowed me to share the pictures on my blog. 

What cuties, both the Haffie and his rider! 
Just look at her composure! 









It looks like the Haflinger is having a bit of fun!
And, despite his naughtiness, 
he is somewhat responsive to his rider -
he is staying inside the dressage ring!

  2. Cute Haffie! I used to jump a Belgian. Fortunately, it wasn't as fisky. I was younger then, so maybe it wouldn't have mattered as much either! I have something small that will actually, FINALLY, get mailed to you and I just missed the mailman because I was helping to watch a neighbor's pet. What do you do with someone like me??? Life has been SO busy lately. I guess the saying "Better late than never" fits well.
