Here are Valegro and Dujardin at London’s 2014 Olympia performing the GP musical freestyle:

Better than being there…..

World class videography provides even the most humble of aspirants opportunity to observe horses and riders contesting the ideals of Dressage. Multiple cameras permit is to see movements from many vantage points, and compare our own observations with those of highly qualified judges stationed at yet different vantage points about the arena.

Of course it takes time to watch 17 rides as if live streamed for 3 hours, but far less than travel time away from our own horses. Is it better to travel?

Just sittin’ On Top of the World

It is interesting to watch young horses develop
