Yeah, same here about being a western girl! However I do love the grace and beauty of a good dressage horse!!

I'm always sending that video to people. I never get tired of watching it. I LOVE that quarter horse.

That was amazing. Its so cool to see that english and western are completely different things. It was amazing to see them swap horses and disciplines. I was amazed that the western guy was doing canter pirouettes and the english rider doing spins.
Those horses must be exceptionally trained and those riders are amazing. They are living proof that you can do both english and western.

I thought it was funny that the western horse didn't spin as fast for the english guy and started crow hopping at the end because he's like "You're not asking me right!" hahaha. Both really great riders and gorgeous horses

That was a really neat video! Both riders did well on each horse, I was really impressed how well the western rider did on that dressage horse!

Wow. I guess this goes to show that western and english aren't really that different from eachother. I do both :)
The english guy looked really out of place on the western horse lol.
The horses had matching boots! Did anyone else notice that?! Hahaha
I think the english rider couldn't make the western horse spin very fast was because he had the small spurs on. lol. I'm sure the dressage horse would have been a bit shocked at the massive spurs on the western guy's boots! :P

I can't see the video at work, but try looking up the all-stars clinic, Equitana 2009 and there is something similar. The 5(?) all-stars - Campdrafting, western, dressage, eventing, SJ - All swapped horses. Very funny watching Alan Hannaford (Well-known campdraft rider) jumping a huuuge jump on the showjumper!
