What im seeing, more and more now, that somebody wants to re-invent the wheel and wants the credit for it. Give it a new, trendy, catchy name and make people think they're doing something special.
I can imagine what Eitan had in mind when he first started, tho.
Please, Opal, longride and others who are doing it, don't take what I said personal.
I just think there was already WD/CD, just not called that.
I think if you check that video you'll find that it is called 'La Garrocha' and not being relabelled as CD or WD - the person doing the Freestyle demo is in fact Jeff Sanders of Modern Vaquero trying to show what can be achieved. They seem to be very interested in getting involved with CD & Eitan as it opens up new doors for them too in promoting the 'bridle horse' concept and keeping the tradition alive and well into the future MODERN VAQUERO
