    It's about time someone put Anky down level. I cannot stand Anky and I have no idea why she even made it as far as she did with her ethics.

    I think that ride was absolutely stunning and I got a lump in my throat just watching it! What a beautiful ride, and it is about time that the Judges recognize those who ride in the same arena as Anky - because they deserve to shine for their talent and abillities.

    The first video was great. I guess I shouldnt go on an anky rant since im not a dressage rider, the reining thing just irritates me...she is just so cocky about it:

    Anky van Grunsven wants to participate in the 2010 World Equestrian Games for Reining. On an Olympic celebration party with her family she got a Western saddle as present and decided to take reining lessons with her friend Rieky Young. In the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Anky wrote, "I think it would be super to ride at the 2010 WEG in Kentucky both in dressage and reining." Van Grunsven lives only 10 minutes from Rieky Young's place and said that she was training there after she had finished her own riding and lessons. "I don't have my own reining horse. I'm testing a few horses at Rieky's. I first want to feel which horse fits me. The sliding and turning, which make the sport so spectacular, are easy to teach. The hard bit is the basis and that everything happens only with one hand. I notice that I think too much when I train with Rieky. The fun bit is that Rieky is not afraid to shut up. Besides Sjef, not many people dare to correct me when I'm riding a horse. Rieky is not bothered by that."

    Hmmm. That's weird. I always thought most reiners didn't use the reins hardly at all.... Stacy Westfall anyone??? Anky has a LOOOONG way to go before she's in the same class reining wise with Stacy....though I would pay cash to see Anky on ANY of those horses bareback...LOL!!!!

    And she automatically assumes she has WEG in the bag for 2010 for dressage. I mean, she probably does...but the fact that she is EXPECTING it... wow. Just wow.

    Totilas, he is such an amazing stallion. I'm going to see him this week at the CHIO Rotterdam. Were Edward hopefully will win off Anky again!

    I think the music fit that horse nicely.

    I personally hate Anky, and I have yet to meet somebody who likes her. I don't know why she still allowed to compete after the whole Rolkur thing.
