US Nationals - Western 03 by Nyaorestock US Nationals - Western 03 by Nyaorestock

NOTE! If you want a larger pixel size version of these pictures, or ones that aren't sharpened, just ask! The original versions of these pictures are all at 2500+ pixels, and while I refuse to POST those sized pictures here I am not against sending a larger sized version to you if you want them.

However, please note that the full size versions will only be sent if you buy the right to use them. Otherwise I'll probably just send you something 500 pixels larger. (I can't do it with this stock, sadly, as it literally peaks at 2560 pixels, but if you want I'd be willing to go as high as 2400.)

Taken at: The 2007 US Arabian/Anglo Arabian/Half Arabian Nationals in Albuquerque New Mexico.

Read the rules in my journal if you wish to use this image. If you understand them and still wish to use this then please leave me a note/comment/etc so that I can know.


Note:
Now larger. Enjoy.

Wow his neckline is extremely unatural and the horse behind him got unhealthy long hooves.
Impressive horse through, I guess it's just a bad moment since the rider takes him so thight on the bosal.

Yeah, the rider was correcting the horse when I took this. Though a lot of trainers these days go out of their way to breed for curvy necks like that, even if it ends up looking horrendously unnatural. As for the horse in the background, sadly some people at these shows really don't care if the hooves are too long or not. So long as the horse performs, they're happy. Makes me glad that my trainer tries to put the horse first, even if it costs him clients in the long run.

It's always like that, the trainers thinking about the horses first will always have trouble.
Because rude training methods bring the success quicker than a normal training :[

I'm a hunter pleasure and dressage girl myself! My trainer recently picked up a gorgeous HA/NSH mare. She's gone top ten at nationals in English Pleasure and Park. :]

Oh--and a bosal is traditionally used as a transition between a snaffle and a 'curb' bit. Generally, it weans the horse off of being dependent on the snaffle for support, and helps balance the youngsters out. It's an important step to take before introducing the curb bit, because with a curb, the horse must hold it's head on it's own. Typically, any horse being shown under the age of five in western pleasure can be in either a snaffle or a bosal. (on the Arab circuit) My trainer's been working a H/A gelding in a bosal lately, before show season. Ok, my little blurb about Arab western pleasure is done. x]

:nod: Thanks for the indepth explanation. I know a bit about the bosal from what I've picked up around my trainer, but I'm not a western rider and never really bothered to learn it's entire purpose. xD I'm an English/Saddleseat rider at heart.

I have NO idea. :XD: Though it appears it probably is them from what I can gather after doing a quick google search and going to the horse's homepage. xD;;; I normally don't pay attention to who is riding whom, especially when I'm taking photos. ^^;

that is a gorgeaous horse! O_O and what a cool hackamore! I've never seen that type of hackamore before...

It's a bosal-style hackamore. It's mainly used in western riding and I'm fairly confident that it's a required piece of tack when you're showing a younger horse in that discipline on the Arabian show circuit over here. (I say 'fairly confident' because I have seen some people bypass the bosal entirely and just ride their younger horses in these classes with a classic bitted bridle.) =)

ah, ok! thanks for the info! ;) My knowledge is very limited when it comes to western riding, so it's always interesting to hear about that stuff:)
