    Thumbs up Your Favorite Freestyle Videos?

    After reading the thread on how some riders are using the same freestyle for years, or using boring music, I'd love to see some freestyles that you think are really outstanding.

    Anyone?

    Steffen Peters and Ravel
    Ashley Holzer and Pop Art at the Royal
    Andreas Helgstrand and Blue Hors Matine
    Anky Van Grunsven and Keltec Salinero

    Reasons!
    Steffen Peters is my favourite dressage rider, and his kur music is just so delightful. Together, he and Ravel make such a wonderful pair, and in time with the music, it's just fun!

    Ashley Holzer took advantage of a fun expo type deal and produced a really amusing kur that got a good chuckle out of me. Not top notch riding, but definitely creative and funny.

    Blue Hors Matine. That's all I need to say.

    Anky's use of choreographers and music specialists on top of singing in her own kur music is really phenomenal. Say what you will about rollkur or not, or how overrated she may be, but I think this kur is really quite great. Well thought out, and the music matches every footfall.

    ETA: Don't think I need to include Totilas and Gal's world record kur. It's a given.

    I have always enjoyed Isabelle and Apache. It was an exhibition but it was fun.

    I can't count how many times I've watched that video. Love that mare! Truly a loss that she died so young.

    Man I love Fuego. That freestyle was just awesome. Totilas's freestyle paled in comparison at the WEG despite how he was scored.

    Blue Hors Matine is my all time favourite Kur. It still brings tears to my eyes when I watch it.

    And I love the music and choreography of this Kur that is performed by her half brother (same stallion Silvermoon).

    Ooo Ooo.

    My alltime favorite kurs:

    Ulla Saltzgeber and Rusty any time they were 'on' (this kur never got moldy for me - it was awesome! Great music, great choreography). I.e WEG 2002.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BkG-DI_jB4

    look at those tempis! DAMN!

    Isabell Werth and Antony (their Beatles music kur).

    Anky Van G. and her West Side Story kur with Bonfire. Great music!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0TLvHhWJvs


    Lisa Wilcox with Relevant (I thought part of her kur perfectly fit that horse).

    Debbie McD's music with Brentina (I busted out laughing when I first heard her walk music - while not a huge fan of the rest of the music I think it fit brentina amazingly well, and that's the essence of a great kur, in my opinion)

    Noteables:

    Anja Ploenzke - she's got some wonderful freestyles. She's so cool.

    Oddly, I don't *love* many of the current freestyles. THey seem so over-produced. Hmmmmm, must take a second look.

    Rafael Soto and Invasor. Sooooo gentlemanly on both of their parts!

    Oh shoot, these aren't videos. Sorry!

    This has been my favourite freestyle since the first time I watched it. Glad to see it mentioned here.

    Woooooow. I love Master, but here you have flames, people holding flames on torches and moving around, and horse tolerating all of that PLUS the fact he can't see where he's going further than the spotlight that is following him around. Amazing testiment to this horse's brain.

    Everytime I hear Steffen's freestyle I think of the "literal version" of that song.

    ..... "I'm insane!"....
