Riders and volunteers had an entertaining and informative evening last night watching the Galloping Acrobatics at Moreton Morrell College.  Rosie and her team wowed us with their horsemanship skills walking and cantering around an arena on a horse with no lunge whilst moving into gymnastic poses.  ‘Vaulting’ is a discipline that many RDA groups around the UK offer, maybe Stratford in the future?

In the second half of their show Rosie with her new protégé Peroni explained how training of horse and vaulter is managed with lots of praise and carrots (for the horse that is).  Peroni is learning how to be a dog and fetch his toy!

A great night, thank you to the Galloping Acrobatics.  If you want to watch how Peroni accomplishes his new tricks visit their website.  They are performing all over the UK this year – well worth seeing.
