    Ah, yes, the beefcake video! Love that beast of a horse.

    This looks like an activity I would participate in if I could. Checking out the links now.

    Great! Would you consider trying it out with Arabians and other non-Spanish breeds? I am really curious about the ability of Pasos to do well in WE, too.

    I would do it with my QHs, but it would also give me an excuse to buy a spanish horse..tee he

    I guess a nice mustang would do it too.....
    That's exactly why I said "allbreed". It shouldn't be limited to Lusitanos, Andalusians and Hispano-Arabs, IMO. Any horse built right should be capable of doing it, and you mentioned lower level....definitely there allbreed.
    It gives more people the possibility to do it. If you limit it to the Iberian breeds only, you create an "elite" image. Unless that is what you want, of course

    I know of several straight Egyptian Arabians who compete in doma vaquera, and work the garrocha, and really well, too.

    Like to try it!

    I have seen it done but never in person. If you find out some good links, please post them. Thanks

    I think my SE gelding would love this. He does "okay" with Dressage, loves jumping but is generally "meh" about arena work. This would give us a fun way to do Dressage!

    I googled clinics in Maryland and VA and found nothing :( hopes are dashed!

    Ah! Is NC too far from MD/VA for a future clinic? ;)

    I would love to find a Kiger for this. I am looking into becoming a certified instructor, as well.

    If I find any more info I will let you all know! :)

    Probably. The distance would make the costs really high :(

    If you know of intro level materials, videos, ostacles etc to get started with, I'm all ears!

    After watching that video, my curiosity is piqued! Looks like a lot of fun and something I'd love to try.

    Going to bookmark the links so I can read more later!
