    Default A Great Celtic GP Freestyle - 73%! Winner - 2012 ODS Championships

    This has everything you want to see in a freestyle. Perfect music for the horse, horse ridden to the music, and choreography that flows with the music. The canter section is SUPERB! Enjoy!

    Freestyle starts 2:10 into the video.

    I'm going to be horribly pedantic here, but how was it "Celtic" music, other than occasionally using a whistle and a flute and it had several bars of nearly being in a jig-like 6/8 rhythm?

    Cute horse, though.

    Because I know the CDs the music came from - Celtic New Age.

    I had guessed it came from something like that. Sorry, when I clicked on the link I expected to see the horse ridden to Irish, Scottish, or perhaps Cape Breton traditional dance music and it wasn't. So I was disappointed.

    I owned him for fifteen years, but he was his own horse.

    We met them at a show once. Jessica let us walk all around and pet him. He's a cuddly little guy and not studdish at all.

    And I love that she rode that in a snaffle and a helmet.

    So cool.

    Me like! That CD is going on my Christmas list. Gorgeous horse, but the activity of the riders feet and lower legs drove me nuts. Must be hard to ride a small horse with those long legs.

    It's so funny that you say that, because I was thinking something similar - not that the activity drove me nuts, but...finally, a video that shows me HOW to ride a small horse (or any horse ) with long legs!! The exaggerated movements are so obvious that even my untrained eye can see them. I have been desperate for a video that shows how to do it! I can nearly (ok, a little exaggeration) touch my feet together under my boy's belly when I drop my stirrups. Of course, there is a big difference between what she is doing and my training level, but, still...
