Pirouettes


pirouette is a two-track lateral movement performed at either the walk or the canter in which the animal makes a circle with its front end around a smaller circle made by the hind end, while bent in the direction of travel.

pirouette (literally "whirl") is a type of dance turn on one foot. It is performed with turnout in ballet

When people were asked to send in their pirouette videos for world ballet day, I desperately wanted to send in one like this:
After all, it's still a pirouette!

A Non-Post

One day, I'd like to have time to start blogging regularly again. Unfortunately with two midterms tomorrow, that day is not today. Cadence & I have had an interesting season.... to say the least.... and I desperately want to get my thoughts about it down on paper. But between school, work, horses, and everything else I try to fit in to a day (physio, ballet, sleep, etc.) there's not much time left over for the necessities, like eating, let alone "luxuries" like blogging. I do miss it though.

Some random photos from this past August:

XC Photos... Again.

Avoiding a massive paper... which is less than 20% complete... and is due in two days, one of which will be spent at a horse show. Good time management at its best here people. So instead of working, I decided to share some of the awesome photos taken by a friend at our last xc school.
 Training or prelim house...
 Prelim thingy
 Training turning question... or maybe prelim. We either rode training, with novice/PT next to us or prelim with training fence next to us. Doesn't really matter either way.
 Jumping over the stream in the middle of a coffin-esque complex. Drop-water/stream/ditch-chevron.
 Cantering through the puddle
Coming off the normandy bank or the steps, can't remember which.
Normandy bank. 
You're missing the bank-with-a-massive-ditch that's one stride away on the other side of this fence.
