Beauty in Motion

I couldn't find the video of Edward Gal and Moorlands Totilas Individual Gold Winning ride from this year's FEI World Equestrian Games but I did find this video of last year's performance... can I just say, my God what an incredible combination of music and horse! When I say this ride is breathtaking I mean it literally!

Link to video


PS- Pixie didnt stick:(



  1. Well, that video editor did a much better job of putting music to Totila's performance than what was actually used during the perf. I watched the original and thought that music was uninspiring.

    As much as I do not care for Anky now, I did watch some of her older videos and they were discussing her use of music and how every beat is synched to match S's footfalls. It's pretty darn impressive.

    LOL-Watching all of this dressage is doing nothing but fueling my fire to start doing it.

  2. Are you getting coverage up in Canada? We get an hour and a half every Sunday...I am gonna have to sign up for FEI TV...I can't stand not being able to watch...

  3. Your mare is so amazing looking, and I'm glad "Pixie" didn't stick. Names are so hard. Of my horses, two announced their names instantly, and the third never found a new name while I had him, which maybe was a clue that I wouldn't keep him in the end. I look at your mare and think Snowcap because she reminds me of what you'd see at the top of a distant mountain, only in reverse. She's delightful. By the way, I really enjoyed reading your posts about buying her. Keep listening to her; she'll tell you her name.
