    It does with some horses. But with her, she actually looks happy. She doesn't look like she's resisting at all.

    Sure, the occasional swish is fine. But, when it is the constant ringing... That's a different story. In dressage they are looking for a horse with a relaxed tail which usually means that the horse is through and supple.

    "In dressage"? This horse was one of the uppermost dressage horses at that level at the time, so apparently "they" don't mind the tail swishing. I've always understood tail swishing to mean your horse probably isn't particularly happy, too, and watching this video is the first time that I'd heard an equine professional (the announcer) proclaim it as meaning how happy she is. I wasn't sure what to think... but it sure was pretty!

    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!

    He was riding to thriller! How fantastic! Had never this horse-rider combination or KUR before. Amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    Actually, they did mark her down because of that.
