Bad dancing: one way to interpret your horse’s weaving problem.
Reader Marcy Flickinger sent us this video of herself “dancing” with Brody, a lesson horse at the barn where her daughter rides. According to Marcy: “He’s got nice foot work in the ring … but some smooth moves outside of it too!” Brody weaves when his pasture buddy leaves to go work in the lesson ring less than twenty feet away from his turnout — as soon as his buddy comes back, the weaving stops.
Until then, it’s dancing time. (Note: must be logged in to Facebook to view.)
Nice moves, guys.
Marcy assures us that Brody has feed, water and a lovely turnout — the weaving is just one of those unfortunate anxious OTTB traits that we have to live with sometimes.
