Musical Freestyle Duet: modern song?
 
In my area, there is a dressage schooling show series that has a Musical Freestyle for modern songs class. My instructor suggested that me and someone else do a duet (since our horses look like twins). I was wondering what song you guys think would be good? We are looking for an upbeat, not country, song thats appropriate for all ears lol. Any ideas?

Thanks!

It's called a pas de deux in Dressage.... most pop music these days is all one tempo and is not suitable for being matched to the walk, trot or canter.

My advice is to get a metronome and measure your horses gaits and from there search for "modern music" which will match the gait you are in. It is not an easy feat! Then you have to worry about theme and if the beat of the music compliments your horses...

Good luck!
