That was adorable. Here's hoping the Haflinger in OUR barn watches this and gets inspired!

My 4 year haffy gelding is so lazy unless he is jumping fences or chasing the ladies, I can't imagine getting him to do that much work.

I was there and saw this ride in person! He was one of my favorites of the whole day.

And you know what? In the warm up, he OWNED those big horses. He has tons of presence, with a real "Look At Me" attitude.

Love it! My daughter's Haffie gelding is so lazy he thinks grazing is work. :) We have a 4 yr old Haffie filly that's an unbroke pasture puff. I'm now motivated to do something with her!

Hey, that's my region!!! We didn't go this year cuz I didn't want to do the 10 hour drive but watching this guy would have probably made it worth it :)

I hope I get to see him in person one day. My little guy is from Tudor Oaks Farm too. I love that he is great on the trail too. What a wonderful horse!

That pony is adorable (aa well as correctly ridden and trained).

They did a great job of finding music that fits his cute little pony gaits.

What a class act :yes:.

Love those pony butt-cheeks.

Love this video, he is adorable. I wanted to see more of him and found a clinic he participated in. I think my love for him grew x10 after watching how willing he is to try anything and everything to please his people. Hope this is ok to post, I just had to share.

I love this pair! They make this haffie owner so proud!

Just looked up Starwars TOF pedigree, and he has Ahgan and Ahgan II on his sire's side. My huff-a-lump has Ahgan III on his dam's side. Very cool to think my haffy is kind of sort of related to Star!

I'm off to work on my dressage...

Thanks for posting this!

I have been too busy with my horse to watch haffies being ridden at dressage shows I've seen them at, and watching them as lesson ponies, etc., I've always thought "that little guy could do so much more!" So it's neat to see one well ridden and conditioned showing off what they can do.
