Favorite Dressage Video

I absolutely adore this video. I've been thrilled by Ravel's freestyles, impressed by others, but this video just touches my heart everytime. Nice, relaxed attentive horse obviously having fun with his very competent rider <3 I know that Forrest had to be put down a few years ago, very sad :( Colic I believe? Not totally sure of the details.

This was the first freestyle I ever watched, and it's actually what started me on liking dressage. I had forgotten about for a few years, and only remembered some of the music, but I was thrilled when I found it again about eight monthes ago.

Hubertus is very much a classically trained rider, and Forest was such a happy horse.
Nowadays, he the coach for the Swedish team. He's been competing mostly just in Europe - I think he has a bunch of young horses in training, and mare (maybe two) competing at Grand Prix. Hopefully we'll see him around a bit more!

I think my favorite bit is from 5.30 onwards. I love that music. It reminds me of rock, and ya know how people use coconuts to make horse hooves clip clopping? xD
And how she swishes her tail happily like a dog, in time with the music.. And how the music fits her. It was an amazing team.

Aw - I LOVELOVELOVE that video (Andreas Helgstrand): RIP Blue Hors Matine :( They retired her and not long thereafter she broke her leg in the field and had to be put down... made me cry and I didn't even know either, only that that horse had a lot of heart and talent.

Yea, it really sucked that she had to be put down. I wonder how the poor owner felt. She really did have a ton of talent.

Unfortunately, that is a sign of resistance.

I disagree, lots of horses swish their tails when they're being ridden and it's nothing to do with discomfort or resistance..
