I came across this collage I made last winter 2015. You may be able to guess the theme..... well may be not! The theme of this collage is the bit. In The Academic Art of Riding the preferred bit is the curb, though lots of Academic riders also like to ride bit less and or bridless, myself included. But actually the point of this blog is to share why this picture exists.....I was one of the winners of a competion put on by Rebecca and Christofer Dahlgren of Horse Vision AB, they gave away 6 bits on fb, all you had to do was like, share and comment. It was really, really cool for me to win!!!! Being so far away, in Western Canada, form the flourishing AAR European scene, bits like this are hard to come by, and was grateful feeling a little bit more connected to all so far away. You see in this pic Cinder my lovely Quarter Horse and my lovely, locally made Cowichan Sweater, super Canadian! Cinder was a great model but I know that this will be the bit for Neko, my 2 1/2 year old Andalusian, so it lies in wait till his training begins in a few years. Thank you Rebecca and Christofer!!!!
