I'm not a big dressage fan, but I did appreciate the training and showmanship here. Thanks for sharing!

I cried it was so beautiful. And then watched it again.

That's the games held in Germany last year! I saw some of it on TV.

That was really lovely, wasn't it? Such love between a rider and a horse.

I want to dowqnload it to my ipod so I can watch it over and over!

Molly said...

Hey Dixie, I'm still yearning to come to Germany again. Oh, HA, I took a dressage lesson over there many years ago.
And, Pony Tail Club? If you figure out how to do that download to the iPod, let me know. Nice to see you here:)

That mare is absolutely brilliant! his riding's not too shabby either!

yes the mare is brilliant, but the part where you said 'his riding is not to shabby either' is an understatemant. the mare doesn't listen to the music, but to his hips, its hard to see, but if you look carefully you can see his hips moving with her body and pushing her into the right beat. the mare would be completle off beat if it wasn't for his guidance. this rider is so good that his cues and leg aids are nearly impossible to see.
