That sucks, but I'll bet she'll produce some amazing foals! I'm glad that they are looking out for her.

Noooooo!! I love that mare! Oh well. She'll make a killing off her babies.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

it was nice to read that she'll have time to be a horse in a herd before she starts to produce babies, and that she'll get to carry them and experience the whole thing.

This might sound like a really stupid question, and I'll admit that I am not a dressage rider by training, but why is Blue Hors Matine so popular? I've watched some of her videos and seen some pictures, and, to me, she doesn't look like she's working properly. And all the tail swishing seems out of place.

Dressage riders, please educate me!

She was a great dressage horse because the won alot, but some horses let off the stress in their back be swishing their tail. I love her because she's really pretty and people said she had a nice attitude. But im not sure how she got really famous

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Wouldn't say it was because she won alot... there are so many horses out there that should not be winning, but they are because they look flashy
Matine was nice, but there are nicer horses out there. What really struck me about her was her piaffe/passage. Not many horses out competing GP can perform piaffe/passage in such perfect rythem and that really was her greatest strength. She had almost metronome rythem in piaffe/passage. Not sure if you've watched any other horses perfeorm GP, but almost all of the 'elite' 'famous' horses have either huge front legs but their back legs just skip and shuffle, or one side is big and expressive while the other side hardly comes off the ground. Also many of them lose their time and start to 'skip'. Matine was able to maintain such a fantastic rythem, she could have piaffed till the cows came home. In saying that, Andreas Helgstrand is a truely inspirational rider. He is extremely talented and did an amazing job to keep such a sensitive, hot mare at that level of performance.
