    Dang that QH could sit on his butt and turn. Lol. I love a good reining horse. I liked how they couldnt perform as good on opposite horses but could still get the horse to do what they were asking. (kinda) lol.

    LOL :)
    I loved this it is amazing !
    I especially love it when they switch and lol, how big the Dressage horse is to the QH, it looks like a MONSTER ! :)
    But it was magnificent and nice to watch :)
    I love how the dressage horse moves, his strides were so long, but I liked the QH horse too, it was lovely and how it moved looked so natural and comfortable for him.
    I loved it :)

    Do you have a link to this, I would really like to see it

    I can't go on You-tube at work, but try searching 'equitana all stars clinic' in you-tube and see what you get. I got it wrong too, the all-stars were campdrafting, dressage, eventing, western and polo :]

    Anyone who thinks that one discipline is more difficult, athletic, or requires more talent needs to watch this video. Love it. Seen it before, but always glad to watch it again.

    That dressage horse was super well trained. I am impressed.

    I agree! I think they both were!

    What's neat is that they were both really good riders. Switching horses proved that. I have to say, I was expecting to see a cowboy put to shame by a dressage rider, but I have to say I think they were evenly matched. However, I have to say, looking at the two disciplines side by side really points out that the basics of them have nothing in common - just look at how the horses carry themselves - the western horse is slumped forward on it's forehand and leaning over into the turns, and it's sidepasses were a bit odd, sort of shuffly. Whereas the dressage horse was light, and supple, and had lovely, free, yet controllable forward movement.

    Overall, I suppose I was impressed with them both, but I'm always going to be an English rider, through and through. Dressage forever baby! ;)
