Bawling. This is SO AWESOME! I'm completely overwhelmed by the beauty of their relationship... still, to this very day. I first saw Remmer and Linda in Helena, Montana, many years ago and cried my heart and soul out at that performance/conversation/dance too. And Remmer has recovered amazingly well! Way to go!
I love how Wathelet doesn't freak out and haul on the reins to stop everything... he just keeps going, like he's jumped bridleless a million times! And Conrad is SUCH a good horse, to also have not freaked out or gotten scared or try to leave the ring or anything. Wow! This is a testament to a what a good relationship there is between that horse and that rider! How many others could have done this with such calm and finesse in competition, I ask you?
Beautiful. Just beautiful. D-Niro seems/looks/acts so relaxed and "with" you. Your fantastic relationship and partnership are evident and a wonderful thing to see! He doesn't ever duck behind the bit to avoid it or swish his tail in frustration. His ears are either pricked forward or tracking you, and his movement is just gorgeous, self-controlled power. These are the signs of a REAL partnership! And that's what dressage is supposed to be. I love this video. Keep up the AMAZING work/play! (ps: I know this is a couple of years old and that you are still riding with this level of excellence!) (pps: I love the music! Made me cry with the beauty of your performance!) :) <3
