Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle(s)

Circles on the sand… Not one, not two, but thousands of circles in walk, trot and canter day by day… It looks simple, but riding a perfect circle is a hard work. So much that George Morris stated “Riding a horse on a circle creates an added workload similar to us riding a bike up a hill against the wind.” :-)

At times riding those endless circles may seem boring. But look at this from another perspective. Every circle you ride is a little lesson on suppleness, straightness and use of the aids.
