Ha!- I could not get the second video, but had no problemw/ the first.

IMO, it was a really nice first competition for them; I feel for MR with the pressure of this appearance, and I'm sure he's glad its over. It was missing some of the magic of EG's rides, but that shouldn't be a surprise; it hasn't been that long for this pair to bond, and their relationship should only get better.
I am somehow always amazed at this horse's temperment- so still in his halts, so relaxed in his walk work, the focus. It stands out more to me now w/ a new rider.

I think he did very well considering the pressure on him and his young age. I think so many people are being so much more critical of him than they were with Gal. I'd give anything to have those long legs of his!!!

i thought Toto looked more like a horse (fantastic) but more of a horse than the circus performer i thought he looked like with Gal.

he looks like he is thinking with the rider rather than being in complete submission - i think he looks less stressed.

i'm surprised the fake bidding only got up to 1000 euros...
