    Yup, he's so inspirational. I have him as a favorite in my youtube videos. You'd previously posted this of him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5895K-Xjupk

    He's why I need to join the Working Equitation USA http://www.workingequitationusa.com/

    Wow! I'm fascinated by what little I know about doma clasica, doma vaquera, working equitation, rejoneo, garrocha...

    I may have an opportunity to travel the world studying horsemanship in the context of culture and I would like to spend about three months in Spain and/or Portugal. I'm a competent rider with background in recreational hunters, eventing, dressage, teaching, barn management and horse care.

    Does anyone have any ideas for places or people in Spain and/or Portugal where I could live and learn in this tradition? I'll need to work with a very limited budget, so would hope to find a homestay situation. I don't speak Spanish or Portuguese (though if plans work out, I will studying the languages) so I've been having trouble searching the internet for possibilities.

    Thank you!

    The mounted games kids should watch that - I always tell them it is just fast dressage.

    You are aware, I'm sure, that dressage is the first phase of a WE competition.

    That looks like the most fun, EVER.

    I just looked at the site Paula linked & there is an instructor living next door to my parents!!!!!!!

    Is there anyone on COTH that does this? I doubt there are any competitions in the midwest.

    Uber-dumb question: I noticed his heels as referenced by another poster. When I work more on deepening my heels, My seat feels less deep in the saddle. Bring them up and I'm sitting deeper, and my horse's back even feels more lifted.

    I am not at this guy's level obviously.
