"Come on. Come On. Good boy. Gooood booooy. Gooood."
Emma worked Lascivio in the working area at FAS the day before the olympics and this was the stallions first workout at the grounds. After 45 minutes he had finally settled down and started to focus on his rider and not on the riders and horses around him also working. Lascivio had once kicked after a horse who accidently got too close.
"Arrrrgghhh!" growled Emma as she steared away the stallions bum from the other horse.
He reared up several times when Emma tried to make piruettes and she exclaimed angerly yet firm "NO'es!"
Lascivio had even started to buck at one time. Emma was close to giving up.
"Keep it up," said William who had walked into the arena to help Emma in her desperate intention to make the stallion focus. After loads of work and advices, Lascivio was rather tired due to his bad behaviour and now finally he was working nicely, though a bit tired, trotting in a circle around William who had the black stallion in a longe line to keep him intact.
A group of people had gathered around the arena to see the stallion at his worst and see Emma's struggle and hanged over the fence to get a closer view. William pulled Lascivio into the center of the circle and turned him and Emma loose and Lascivio cantered along passing by other equestrians allong the fence and the only thing he now did was to stretch his ears back and flicker his tail sharply. But he didn't do much more else now.
"It's a progress!" shouted William as he collected the longe line, looking after the team and returning to the fence.
Emma collected him into a piaffe and he walked collected and centered with his neck high and his head pressed tight to his throat as he chewed his bit. He snorted loudly every 5th second and shock his head slightly while his lips smacked together with each step he made. Emma pushed him forward and he left his piaffe and went into a collected trot.
"Good." Emma patted Lascivio after the now one and a half hour long workout and Lascivio was breathing exhausted. She let go of the reins as Lascivio walked and he gladly stretched out his neck and walked with his head close to the ground as he stopped to scratch away to foam from his mouth against his left foreleg. Emma held the reins loose in one hand as she waited. He started to walk again and though he was loose to do what he pleased he didn't bother about the other horses. He was toooooo tired to care about them.

And here we have it. Lascivio and Emma's training pic for the Olympics ^^
It has been so delayed, but now it's finally here. I am glad I sat down and drew it, because I love it. Lascivio is such a beauty
though, he is kind of a monster xD
I would most likely run if I was to ride such a horse LOL
I am highly impressed by Emma's patient with this boy... and the fact that she is riding without a helmet XD such a daredevil she is... just like Lassie XD
Hope you enjoy it.
