I would have preferred a straigtforward filming of the riders/horses sans the special effects.
Anyway, thanks for sharing that video. I am going to favorite it.
What is really instructive to see is how the riders hardly move at all. They do move for Spanish walk, and this is to give the shoulder room to move when the horse is extravagantly lifting it.
But what I really focussed in on is how quiet were their hands and notice the bend in the elbow and the upper arm perfectly vertical. How many riders do you see riding like that? Wanna know, I think Western reiners emulate that position better than many high level dressage riders.
