    Default Your favourite dressage horses/ponies

    I love the pony stallion Power and Paint... he's gorgeous! Another pony - FS Don't Worry. I also quite like the eventing pony Theodore O'Conner, although he is not a straight ''dressager''. Which dressage stars do you admire and drool over?

    Ahlerich.
    Rembrandt.
    Peron.

    Saw the last two in Atlanta in 1996. Never saw Ahlerich live, but have the video of his pas-de-deux with Marzog. Incredible.

    Wow, I have never watched FS Don't Worry before. Amazing!!! Almost all of my favorites have already been named. Gifted is probably number one. He was my dressage hero growing up. More recently I have fallen head over heels for Warum Nicht. He is just so graceful. Love him.

    I'd love to see some trot work NOT in slow motion.

    Favorite dressage pony? Without a doubt, Dornik B. He's the most successful dressage pony EVER and has won 7 [or I think it might be 8 now] European championships, and the ones he doesn't win seem to end up being won by his progeny. Can't post a video unfortunately but he's incredible.

    Favorite dressage horses? Granat, Corlandus, Piaf, Matine and Weltall [who's a pretty crazy boy, but when he's 'on' he's breathtaking!] Favorite up and coming dressage horse is Florencio, I really hope Hans Peter takes him as far as he can go because he's just incredible.

    I agree with all the German Riding ponies mentioned...Im so excited about breeding to FS Don't Worry this year. Fs Champion de Luxe(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDy0Z...eature=related) is pretty special too and Der Kleine Prints (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmPuK...elated)!...and for younger ponies...I am a faithful fan of Hilken's Black Delight.

    I think My favorite dressage horse is my Russian FEI schoolmaster!

    Mr President. It was his and his amateur owner/rider's very first World Cup. I just love how much he enjoys doing dressage.

    Just a few that haven't been mentioned, but I think the deserve to be noted:

    Bonaparte - For making it all look so easy.
    Balagur - Because he's the little horse that can.
    Invasor - Because he's Invasor. What other justification do I need?
    Olympic Ferro - Piaffe anyone?
    Renoir UNICEF - The big horse with an even bigger walk.
