Many PRE/Andalusian carry themselves in nice frames even when at liberty. They have been bred specifically for collection and they have the perfect conformation for it. They would have a harder time stretching out like a WP horse than they do with this kind of thing.

My comment had absolutely zero to do with the collection or frame they're carrying. I was referring specifically to the responsiveness. It's cute to try and kid yourself that they asked the horse nicely to perform so flawlessly, but think again.

Maybe before anyone goes judging.

The video I posted is just 1 part of a three part Equitation thing they do.

Take a look at part 1..the dressage test


Then comes part 2 the ability test NOT AT SPEED. (this is more like what has been posted from Wild Spot but I still think there is more finesse even here.


And then comes part 3 the speed test


I love the race to the end of the arena with the sliding stop to the canter sideways over the pole. Not that many horse can do that.

My TB and my QH jumper could have done most of that; *except* the canter half pass down the rail on the ground, that was truly impressive. Also, I don't know if either of them were ever fit enough to perform that whole test and stay balanced and light in the bridle.

Neat video, neat to see classical horsemanship with a completely different application.

That last video is still amazing to me. That horse really looks like he enjoys his job.

I could watch those videos all day. It does seem to be a true overall test of riding... and I love their hats :)

And MM, I'm going to disagree with you; I seriously doublt coercive training methods were used on these horses, if they wre, I doubt the performance would be as fluid and resistance free. There's probably way more coercive and incorrect training in the average dressage horse showing at FEI levels - the ones who have been pushed along too fast, are flexed at the third vertebrae rather than the poll and who warm up in Rollkur.

The other thing that impresses me about all these videos is the horses' fitness: even with the Andulusian's natural ability for collection; that's a *long* time to maintain a collected canter - a really long time.

Didn't read the thread but wow that's an impressive video. As far as it being a "test" ... I don't know anyone in the real world who's horse could do that that well let alone MY greenie XD

Edit: And by "real world" I mean in the people I know in real life
