    I found this and thought some of you horse lover's would love it, and others would just be entertained. I don't even like horses, but this is wonderful.

    Oh, THANK YOU!!!! I used to be a horse trainer. Nothing like this.....did basic ground training to start out 2 year olds, but this brought tears to my eyes!!
    To know the years of work, and see the sheer joy in this horse's face just touched me to the heart.
    I got to see a performance by the Lippizaner Stallions, and the magnificence of the horses and riders is beyond belief.
    TY!! TY! TY!! This made my day!!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Matine was an absolutely amazing horse. I had hoped to see her perform at the World Cup in Las Vegas in 2007. Sadly, she injured herself while she was being unloaded from the trailer and was unable to compete. She never fully recovered and, unfortunately, broke a leg while out in her pasture in January of this year that resulted in her having to be euthanized - a tragic loss to the dressage world and all who knew her.

    Those interested in dressage might also want to check out the videos of Totilas on YouTube. He has been getting record breaking scores, but none of his performances move me like that one of Matine at the WEG.

    That's amazing. It always amazes me how they can teach an animal to do such intricate steps..and in time to the music too. The horse dances much better than I ever have..or will :D

    So heartbreaking to hear of her death.
    Some of our local riders went to the WEG a couple of years ago. Not in dressage, but in reining, and halter.
