    I think that's the single dumbest, mildly falic thing I've ever watched on the internet. I'm embarrassed for them.

    Well if you want more men getting into dressage, you have to think outside the box!

    I'm sure they had a blast making that, but I have to agree with Petstorejunkie... really weirdly phallic in a way that's more discomforting than humorous - but to each their own!!

    The video was 5+ minutes. Did you lose track of time watching it?

    Oh, heck you really, really have to work at seeing anything phallic (NOT fallic) in this. Didn't you have a stick horse when you were kid? Don't you have peewee equitation at your shows, where the child runs a course (complete with jumps) on a stick horse? C'mon. Get real. Women don't have phalluses, and men don't have two of them. This is a bunch of people having fun..I'm amazed they're not all laughing their boots off. And the cat is priceless!!!

    Awe come one.... You have to admire any dressage trainer who can convince 9 people to do that!!

    I do recall.... the horsey noodle being the object of some disparagement on a previous thread. Methinks neither the "Noodlettes" nor their trainer give a funk about the criticism.

    hahahah I was embarassed, I laughed, I enjoyed the flying changes and the actual concept of using a noodle to teach those movements is new to me, so I learned something, too!

    Yes, the initial shock of the fact that they weren't going to stop dancing anytime soon had me confused and a little dumbstruck, but I can't say I was offended at all.

    Thanks for the laugh

    Work?? I gave that up a few years ago. You can usually find me at the barn with my two horses.

    Nor do I expect the videos I select for posting to be everyone's cup of tea. It's like going to see a horse movie - everyone has an opinion when they come out of the theater.

    I wouldn't need to be drunk to do that. I'd dance better were I to be drunk, but other than that it looked like a lot of fun was had.
