ok well I think it would be SOO much fun to do a freestyle! :D
I think i want to use a maybe one or two songs with words... but, i have heard so many people talk about how 'frowned upon' it is, haha well, im the kind of person that would do that JUST because its frowned upon :D
I think using a sogn or two with words makes the freestyle more fun, and i personally dont care about looking proffesional, im not that kind of person.
I was wondering, what do you guys think about freestyles to music with words?

LOL The only think unprofessional about freestyle IMO, is when Anky used her voice for her freestyle... It was, as Simon Cowell would say; Horrific.

Do it. It's not as if you're competing for 20 grand, eh?

I would go for it! I knew someone(turned out to be a total douche, but we won't go into that ;)) who won a comp doing a freestyle to Bye Bye Bye!

I think singing along would be bad. You can't speak to your horse in regular dressage, so I could see them getting you DQed for that

I saw a 2nd level freestyle done to "Brown Eyed Girl" and it was fantastic.
The reason words are generally frowned upon is it can detract from the horse. But if you can find a song that really matches the horse, beat and theme, it won't matter if there are words or not

What I've always wanted to see is a freestyle to Trans Siberian Orchestra music!

^ That would be awesome! :D

I wish my VHS tape of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics dressage hadn't given out. There was a snippet on it of one of the freestyles, ridden to the Ghostbusters theme. Sadly, there was only about 30 seconds of it before they moved on to the full performances of the bigger name riders. I would have loved to see the whole thing... :-:)lol:

Another interesting method is to use a song that is so universally well-known that if you use the instrumental version, people are thinking of the words anyway! Just as effective, and you won't have to sacrifice points ;)
For example:
