Dressage is dancing!

I've been taking lessons on Fancy for the past couple months, with a wonderful trainer in south Austin. I'm learning Dressage. When people ask me what dressage is, I tell them it's like "horse ballet." It's a very technical riding, and expounds upon the natural talent/ability of horses.

Krista found this video clip, which is marvelous to watch! This is freestyle dressage (the horse and rider perform to music).

Oh wow! That stuff is amazing! I can't imagine how much training that must take! I love how the horse actually dances with the beat :D
