    Exclamation Video of Totilas new rider- Rath

    Here is some vid of the new rider http://www.horseandcountry.tv/news/i...-has-new-rider

    it made me a bit sad to be honest and I don't even know the horse.....god knows how Gal is feeling. I obviously need to toughen up

    He did a nice job although can't tell much from a quick video but wishing him well.. Lot for a 26 year old to shoulder especially with all the sharks out there.

    I thought that 26 it seems so young he must be so nervous. I just hope he is lovely to such a special horse.

    I had two thoughts as I watched this: First, if I were Rath, I would be incredibly nervous having a bunch of cameras there for broadcast throughout the dressage world; worse possibly than any show, and he hasn't ridden the horse much at all.....UGH
    Second, Toto looked like he was having a good old time, doing his thing w/out regard for the cameras, and just relaxing back to his walk when done. Temperment and talent - what more could you want?

    It says the video is private, so I can't see it either.

    Thank you. Sorry to those who want to think negatively about this, but I think they look good together. What a great opportunity for Mr. Rath/he seems to be a very quiet/soft rider...I hope they do very well together.

    Agreed! I think he looks like a very lovely rider. What an opportunity at age 26!

    I agree that they look lovely together. His hands are very soft and Totilas' poll is up where it should be. They haven't had much time together and I wish them all the best.

    Even though I not capable of riding a horse of this caliber yet, I am horribly jealous Wow, such an opportunity and he is only four years older than me. Lucky, lucky, lucky. He does ride him well and I am looking forward to what they will accomplish as they begin to compete. I think I am just excited to see a younger rider on Totilas.
