    Hmmm....lol I can think of maybe one or two horses I've known who could do it like it was performed there, but none of my guys could do it as is XD lol at least not quite as pretty as that. Loving that horse and rider though, beautiful team work.

    I've seen these before. Pretty much the same as an ASH time trial - Just much prettier!

    We do things very similar. I'll try to find a video.

    Not many good ones but heres two. There are different obstacles every time. Generally the first obstacle is a gate and you have to walk to the gate and you can go fast from there on - Sometimes a walk or trot section at the end as well.

    Somehow WS they lacked the finesse of the original video but good efforts though.

    I could totally do that! No, I'm only kidding, those horses and riders are amazing!

    Oh yes, nothing like the quality of the original. I would love to ride a horse like that. However the concept is the same, but for a different breed. Those Spanish horses are built to travel so together and cadenced - our stock horses ae built to fast and turn quick, not many look fancy doing it lol.

    I think that's almost the point. I could definitely do that on Zierra - but don't ask us to make it pretty.

    That rider doesn't MOVE, and don't kid yourself - a canter that collected is far harder to sit then ANYTHING we own. At times, they actually look fake, the way the horse is spinning around the barrels with such precision.

    It's the fluid masterful grace that makes it so amazing and breathtaking. I absolutely LOVE how it's 100% leg and seat - that bit is for no purpose except to tuck in that finely arched baroque neck.

    Unfortunately, I would bet money that the methods used to create a horse THAT responsive aren't things most of us are likely to use or are necessarily even legal over here.

    That was amazing my horse couldnt do that though lol she wouldn't be afraid or nothin she's just too old she can't jump or anything anymore x.x

    Looks like fun! It'd be years before myself or my horse could do anything even NEAR it though, and it certainly wouldn't be as pretty!

    What a responsive horse!
    Pretty neat.
