Seldom Seen's retirement demo

Most of the old hands on here will probably have seen this before but I hadn't - hadn't even heard of Seldom Seen!

Made me all warm and fuzzy inside after a very rough day...and that pony could move!

I went to the same college as Lendon Grey, and she used to come back to teach. I love her approach to teaching and riding. Horse first.

What a great video-I had not seen it, thank you for bringing it here. What a talented team.

Yes indeed, as an East Coast dressagecrone I had the pleasure to see Lendon compete with Seldom Seen and also Last Scene, another amazing gray pony. I hadn't seen the retirement ceremony, though. Retiring on Saturday night at Dressage At Devon was a fitting swansong:for this incredible pony (I believe he was 14.2).

Lendon was teaching a clinic at college once and brought two horses; a young one who I can't remember and a 16 year old named "Crown Jewels." I remember her because in the stall, she was sway-backed and not at all impressive. But when she was under saddle with Lendon, she was breathtaking. It was the most remarkable transformation.

I love to see a horse that is not a big dressage- bred warmblood doing dressage so nicely. It seems that back then it was more about making the horse, any horse, better. Not so much about the display of huge gaits and dramatic movement that you really can only get with the warmbloods.
