You know Kayty,It's not worth an answer when you think the horses from the spanish riding school are are dancing horses. a dancing horse is a horse is one that can follow a rythem to the exact beat. There is no whipping or spuring allowed, you have me confused with someone else. but proof is easy to find,just google. The riding school perform to a cadence, in case you weren't aware. This is all I have to say on any subject to you. Have a nice day.........

I know how the SRS horses work. This is generally what gets referred to as horses 'dancing'. Horses 'dancing' to the beat of the music is what us awful modern dressage riders call a freestyle, or Kur.
The 'dancing horses' that I've seen promoted, are ones that get put in chains and have their legs hit to perform false piaffes. Real entertaining :/

I'll have to google you then, I'm quite curious to see your rendition of dancing horses.

Hmmm ok, so it looks like you do western/spanish style riding, to music.... essentially a different version of the dressage freestyle/kur but in a bit of fancy tack and very different way of training and asking for the same movements - which appear to be more 'tricks' than development of the horse's stength through the 'building blocks' of strength and gymnastic training as used in dressage.

Sorry OP, very off topic. I am just curious and quite confused as to what Al Ragusin is promoting and referring to.
