When I was a counselor at my horse camp, there would be a show at the end of every week. Laura, the BO, would play God Bless America by Celion Dion.

Maybe some Beethoven music?

Hmm...Beethoven music is good. How about some instrumentals?

First you have to figure out the tempo of your horses' strides at the walk, trot and canter, then listen to a whole schwackload of music (classical is preferred) and find one that matches the cadence. I'm sure you could talk to a few musicians in your area :)
Or, if you want something more upbeat, listen to some more popular songs and find a few that match your horse's cadence.

All depends on your horse's movement. Figure out what speed and rhythm you will need for each pace, then figure out the pattern of your test.

I can just see a horse moving to this. I love it, hope you do.

Classical is more common but lately people have been doing anything and a mix of multiple things.

Example: This horse begins with the intro to Candyshop:

What level are you competing at? What is the routine like? What are you wanting to include in your test if you get the choice? You have videos so we can get ideas and view as to your horses tempo?
