    What a nice video !

    Loved it when Carl said (of riding at the Olympics): "Same stuff, different arena."

    don't want to sleep with Carl (I *am* married after all) I want to be his working student and BFF. In the evening after the chores are over, we'll all sit around drinking wine (or spritzers in his case) and share a lot of laughs as our dogs play at our feet. It will be wonderful. LOL, that's *my* daydream
    Didn't need rose-colored glasses for that. Who the flip cares about a rider's sexual orientation. Geez, Louise.)

    yeah, really .

    I'm with you both on that

    After a rough morning (almost lost a finger, pretty sure I sprained my groin, and still have three more to ride ) this comment made me LMAO!!!!!

    Meshach, this is my new dream as well.

    This is a really nice video. The horse is calm and the rider is relaxed. I definitely swooned at Carl kissing his dog because o fthe look on the dog's face. I don't care what side he's batting for, what a cute moment. I love Carl and very much respect his riding, and I've really come to respect him more for producing the horse/rider combo that is Charlotte/Valegro.

    Not surprised by the snaffle. However I very much enjoyed the video and the emphasis on happy horses doing their job without force. A good goal for any rider.

    And you never know, Carl might swoon over some women ... in the same way Ellen swoons over hot men on "Hunk Week."

    Thank you - I'm suprised it took until the 2nd page for someone to notice this!

    And yes, like several have commented already - I think all experienced riders know that some of their horses go well in a snaffle too. There are no good ol' days, there have always been, and will always be good riders and not-so-good riders, gentle riders and harsh riders. And horses who go well in snaffles, and others who go better in the double.

    I happen to think Charlotte and Carl are lovely riders. I also think Edward Gal is an incredible rider. Thank goodness we have such skilled examples to aspire to and learn from!

    Sorry - just couldn't be bothered earlier on. OP is a Totalis lover. Not a Peter Kittle fan though.

    cadence, you may have missed a rather amusing thread on the Dressage forum... do a search for Totalis.

    No! it says the video is private - anyone have any ideas where else I might be able to watch it?

    Try Horse and Country TV, there are two series containing Charlotte and Valegro: At home with Carl Hester and Carl and Charlotte: Dressage Superstars.
