    Default CL ad of the day - Got a Dancing Horse?

    From the Dallas CL


    Hello, I'm actively searching for an BIG andalusian or azteca that's trained to dance.
    THE HORSE MUST BE A BIG 16 HANDS OR TALLER, GOOD LOOKING & CAN DANCE. If you have a stallion, he must have an easy temperament.
    Ready to pay up to 10k for the right horse.

    PLEASE DON'T WASTE MY TIME OR YOURS. ONLY REPLY IF YOU'RE HORSE MEET REQUIREMENTS.
    ALSO, PLEASE BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE PICTURES AND VIDEO IF POSSIBLE

    Thank you,

    They actually have "dancing horses." It's a Mexican thing.

    There's this one singer, whose name I cannot remember for the life of me, who we were told was the "Garth Brooks" of Mexico that did a show in Duluth, GA and boarded his 5 dancing horses who were Andalusian stallions at our ranch for the weekend and he actually let us ride one of them. The guy rides the horses and sings and makes the horses "dance." Youtube how the train the horses to do it - it's pretty depressing.

    That was like a $10,000 saddle that was made out of stingray if I remember correctly... I can't believe they let us ride that horse. There were probably 20 people that sat on that horse that night.

    Would the stallion need to lead when he dances?

    Seriously, we have a group of Mexican riders here that performs in every Labor Day parade.
    They ride a mix of Andys, Pasos, Aztecas & last year a Friesian.
    Part of their parade routine is a dressage-ey type movement that could be called "dancing".
    Think highspeed zigzag piaffe/passage.

    Most of them are lovely horses & most of the riders do a nice job too.
    I know where they stable & keep meaning to drop by some day...

    Also an Indian tradition with the Marwari (sp?) horses.
