Course walking to the beat

Everyone knows that hunt seat riders, especially equitation riders, are very serious. Clad in conservative, traditional beige breeches and navy coats, these riders demand perfection from their horses, their grooms, and themselves. Horse shows are a place for hard work, discipline and concentration, not for self-expression.

But no one told any of that to these riders.

This video was taken at the 2011 New England Equitation Championships. The adult equitation riders in the 41+ age group coordinated their routine for weeks ahead of time to honor the 35th anniversary of the event, and then broke it out during the course walk. Kudos to you, ladies!*

*There may have been a dude or two in the field, but I didn’t see any.
