The freestyle that beat out Anky...

Thought i'd post this all for everyone to see. This weekend the queen of freestyles got beat by Edward Gal and Totilas with an 86.70% . Some argued that this music overpowered the horse, but the judges obviously thought it suited him greatly.

Enjoy!

I'm glad someone beat Anky. Truthfully, I despise her. I don't respect her at all and I'm glad someone showed her she's not the be all end all of dressage.

Speaking of Anky...

Have you seen how horrible of a reining rider she is?


Check it out on 2:22 when she SMASHES the horses mouth with the bit (he opens his mouth, I don't think I've ever seen a reining horse do that) during a sliding stop. And this was done in Vegas and she was even featured in America's HQrse Magazine, AQHA's membership magazine in an article about reining.

The worst part about it, I think, is that the HORSE knows that pattern with or without a rider and knows how to do it. Sigh.

That horse hates her guts, and looks like complete crap. I wasn't impressed by anyone there, actually, which is a crying shame that all those english riders that think western people just 'yahoo around', can't ride the world's best horses in a reining pattern! It's just circles and a straight line. I'll admit--dressage has way more 'finesse' then reining... and they all sucked at it. AND they had time to practice.

Lol.

That freestyle gave me GOOSEBUMPS! Does anyone know what music was used? I heard some of the Pirates of the Caribbean score for sure. I really liked the mix of Spanish and Celtic styles. I've dreamed of my dream dressage freestyle, drawing it with a pencil as I listen to music I like, and POTC score is one of my favorites! I'm not a strict dressage rider, but I love watching freestyles and playing with my own fantasy ones, lol. Fantastic Ride.

I love to see Anky beat(Rollkur witch that she is) and I was positively sickened when I got my QH mag this month. Ugh. WHAT is she trying to do in reining? The only funny part was picturing her doing ANYTHING to the tune of 'Cotton Eyed Joe'.

I don't think that Slayer or Megadeath could even overpower that horse's trot. Good choices all around, very well executed and a fabulous horse/rider. Finally a test in the 80%s that actually deserves it. And the fashion is also excellent, I want that tailcoat!

And that is some of the most horrible reining I have ever seen.... She'll probably get the gold though ;) At least until Edward Gal or Andreas Helgstrand take up reining too.

When she waves at the end all "OMG LOOK HOW AWESOME I AM" I want to slap her and steal her pony...

I think she figures "oh well i'm the 'best' at dressage, so... I must be the best at every other horse sport! Even if it is the complete opposite of what I do now!"

although reining does incorporate some dressage

ugh...
