^^^ Haha, great video! The end of the video was great.
I agree though, that video was a great example of how to lay out freestyle. You want to work the song into the program, that's the best thing about freestyle. Also, being that the song you chose is slower, you may want to keep a slow lope with the pattern, I think it would look better than a faster canter.
It's a great song though to do the pattern to...
I'm not sure if these moves leave you enough time but here's where I would incorporate your spins and sliding stops...
And I can't call in sick on Mondays when the weekends been to strong, (Spin clockwise)
I just work straight through the holidays, And sometimes all night long. (Spin counter-clockwise)
You can bet that I stand ready when the wolf growls at the door, (when he holds out door, do your sliding stop, rollback and gallop the other way)
Hey, I'm solid, hey I'm steady, hey I'm true down to the core (Sliding stop to core)
Then I'm thinking backing up during these two lines, and a rollback into a figure 8.
And I will always do my duty, no matter what the price,
I've counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice.
Now doing the figure 8 to these lines, at a nice and slow lope and doing lead changes....
Oh, and I don't want to die for you,
But if dying's asked of me,
I'll bear that cross with an honor,
'Cause freedom don't come free.
And now speed up into...
I'm an American soldier, an American,
Beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand,
When liberty's in jeopardy I will always do what's right,
I'm out here on the front lines, so sleep in peace tonight. (sliding stop)
And not sure what to do with these lines and the beginning...
American soldier, I'm an American,
An American Soldier
