Why is this considered okay though

Damn. 

I honestly never understood why this was necessary to get your horse to run faster. Like in any other case slamming down on your horses back and kicking the shit out of your horse would be unacceptable. Like, are there not other alternatives to get your horse to run faster?

It creates drag, and the bouncing slows the horse down because you’re not going with its movements and causing pain. If you watch really good barrel racers, they know how to ride properly.

Working with this little green OTTB. Hes honestly so fun but trying to get him to stretch into the bit at the trot is like getting a brick to bend without breaking.

I’m attracted to intelligence. Not the book smart type of intelligence. I could care less whether you’ve gone to college or how much money you make because of it. I like intelligent conversations that make me think even hours after it’s ended. I soak up words from radical minds.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

Good lord, the fluidity of her movement is mind-bending, jfc

Ancient healers believed Earth’s energy could be easily absorbed through our skin and through the soles of our feet.
Studies proves earthing (also called grounding) can improve your blood pressure, reduce cortisol, and even help problems sleeping. It’s done by reconnecting your body with the free electrons that flow through the Earth’s surface and it’s as easy as walking barefoot outdoors.

Earth, motherfucker
