Rollkur in Endurance

This is Part 2 of a 2-part series.
Part 1 is here.

Since many equine disciplines have adopted this cockamamie type of domination training, endurance wackos officials decided to jump on the bandwagon and give it the old college try too. What better place to test this ridiculous method than the 100 Miles in One Day Tevis Cup.

It is unknown as to when this event was held, and it is a mystery how many horses finished. The riders all have concussions and don't remember anything, the horses still can't see anything but their feet, and officials are in clandestine bars unlocatable.

This concludes the test of endurance and Rollkur. It was deemed a failure.


  1. oh, this is great. baasha is the one who says it suddenly got dark, cuz he was such a horrendous tail-gater.

    i agree with jean - you set the horse up in a rollkur position so that when you enter the show ring, you allow the horse a little more freedom and the horse expresses its gratitude and performs exactly on the vertical. *spit*

  2. I was this weren't such a "sad funny." I am laughing, but my heart aches.

  3. How ridiculous can you get? I'd say it will leave the field wide open for those NOT jumping on this idiotic bandwagon to win everything.
    Unless I missed something, Rollkur restricts the breathing in addition to interfering with line of vision.
    How phenomenally stupid...Wow.

  4. ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

  5. OMG! I just love this! You showed it like it is! LOL

  6. Hilarious cartoons! I agree, that position wouldn't be the greatest for trails.
