I'm happy when horse sports hit mainstream media or pop culture in a positive way. (I'm not including Madonna in that comment)
But I think I will remain silent at table lest my niece come up with another gem. Her last one was taking a good long appraising look at me and saying, "You know, you're not as young as you used to be!"
That, and the um, rather tender brushing of the horse while wearing a show coat. Who does THAT? Was he singing a love song to the horse? Well, at least he wasn't riding it hard and showing his "domination" over it a la the Impactor crowd.
And the jump at the conclusion of the dressage test. WTF? Rider of the YEAR? (The ribbon he had in his hand as he got into his car. Well, maybe at his local riding club!) Spare me.
Yes, I agree with the creepy, weird interpretation of it. And was the horse wearing a red halter during the "dressage" test? I mean come on people! The only thing I found amusing was the sour, disapproving looks on the judges faces, that was probably the most realistic part of the video. Cute horse, though!
Gorgeous horse, but it was just kinda disturbing the way he way looking at the horse and singing at the beginning and like everyone else said the locker room scene I could have done with out. But hay publicity is publicity!
