Anky won. http://youtube.com/watch?v=MPJGEzI3aIc
Personally I think that Helgstrand had a better ride....

Having said that though, Anky's horse had those tempis perfectly on the beat.... that was amazing, but other than that it was a fairly boring ride.

ha ha thank you. It is a great video isnt. I think this one tho is still one of the best, even better than the last one I posted



I"ve watched it dozens of time and I still get goosebumps every time I watch it. She won the Olympics with this KUR. The horse who was a veteran died shortly after.

If you are at all into Dressage I would suggest getting what is in my opinion THE BEST dressage DVD that has come out in the last couple months. It's a 2 CD set about Anky and Gestion Bonfire.

AMAZING DVD and cd. Has all her KURs ever ridden up to 2007. There is also a music cd of all the soundtracks of her KURs which are breathing taking soundtracks.

I know most tack stores carry it.

I though they used both bits constantly at the same time, I do suppose they aren't that bad as long as long as they are used properly, which I'm sure upper level dressage riders know how to use their hands while riding. At first glance they look mean but if you think about how its used, they aren't terrible.

It makes me sick. How could someone mistreat such a wonderful animal like that?????? I Have even seen bike chains used as bits..... and then I found one in my local tackshop. I would have burned it if I could!

My FAVORITE dressage video! Thanks My2Geldings for posting it.
I wish Anky would have placed second. Her horse didn't seem to enjoy it as much, nor did the crowd... it wasn't a 'moving' performance. To me, why would a correct but blah-performance win over one that was AMAZING, the horse had higher lift, and looked like she was having fun! And I'm a western pleasure rider... that's the ONLY dressage video I have on my favorites!
Actually, I'm going to go watch it again right now. Eat that, Anky. I think she won because of her name, personally... even though it was VERY good as well.
