Question on Freestyle music? Pirates of the Caribbean.

Okay, I know Pirates of the Caribbean has been way over done, currently I am just putting together more of a practice piece(both for my editing and choreographing skills, and for the horse) but if it turns out great I may use it.

Currently I have the walk piece, which is a portion of the song "Calypso" by Hanz Zimmer.

I am trying to figure out if the piece "He's a Pirate" is more of a trot, a canter, or possibly both.

Hans Zimmer - He's a Pirate - YouTube

What do you guys think?
This is for a Training Level Freestyle by the way.
Happy New Year!

I think it's more of a canter, but I'd slow it down a smidge eitherway!

Good luck on your freestyle test!

Everyone wants to use Pirates for freestyles lately!

One of our GP riders used it for a couple of years. Loved the music, not a fan of the combination. Want to cut off his hands... But anyway - here's a video

Yup sounds more like a canter, and maybe slow it down, but the important thing is to ride different paces while playing the music, see what fits your horse. I thought I had a great piece picked out for Bert, felt great for intro and I thought it matched her trot well, until I rode to it, turns out it was an awful choice so it's back to the drawing board.

Eclipse, what program do you use for your editing? I need to find something that is really simple so I can mix some tracks and change the tempo if needed.

BTW, what do you think of this for Ben, You Tube didn't like the music I had on there and this was their lucky dip, best fit option


He will be doing intro this year I hope....have some work to do to even get him in the ring yet.

I always found this video interesting{part way down the stallion page} they discuss choosing music choreographing
for your horse. Maybe a bit bias as the subject horse is AQHA He did quite well for not being your typical breed for dressage!

I'm absolutely positive they can prepare for the Intro level by summer with the good trainer (and by "prepare" I mean solid good scores and possible upper ribbons). If my greenie could I don't see any problem with this horse either (plus his confo is better then that of my horse).

Golden,
Are you saying you do a musical freestyle at Intro level? I didn't think such a thing was possible.

I did some research while back as I was curious to do one. From what I remember it starts from the higher level (I believe 1?) for the rated shows. However some local shows allow to do musical dressage on low levels as well. Very much depends on show.
