    Default Video: Tinne's Winning Freestyle at the 2013 World Dressage Masters

    This is worth watching! 84.075% and a standing ovation by the spectators. Cees Slings is the freestyle designer.

    I couldn't stick it out with that music. And I'm a DQ. I suppose I could have muted it, but that music grated on my ears. the first half I watched was nice. Beautiful pair.

    I really enjoyed the music! (The walk part was just a tad cheesy and I would have prefer it stays in the rock type of music)

    Nice kür! The last part, all the canter, tempis and last piaffe were amazing!

    Actually the part that grated was the passage/trot music. It grated like bad, early 70s club music...that triad that started higher and went lower duh duh dum...

    The canter part was better.

    I ended up re-watching it with the volume as low as it goes in that part, then turnit it up, because the pair are lovely together. Love that horse.

    I didn't see them all, but I really liked Steffen Peters' music.

    This was a really good kür, though. Good pair.

    I recognize the music...it's from the Broadway musical version of The Who's Tommy. I saw that play back in the 90's....
    I'm not tense, just terribly, terribly alert!
    If you can't be a good example, you'll just have to be a horrible warning!

    I loved the ride and the music That someone found it grating just shows how very subjective this is. I think that happens when dressage intersects with art. I'm sure we all have wildly different tastes in music, visual arts, dance, books, movies

    Fun!

    Though I did love Steffen's music...I've been wanting to do a U2 freestyle forever, and his canter music was an orchestration of U2's "Bad" (one of my favorite rock songs ever).

    I thought the music was really well matched- enjoyable. And that ride made it all look so smooth and easy. Wow!

    Lovely rides, both of them I found Legolas piaffe and passage especially good.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    I need to go dust off my Tommy album. I am not a fan of 'jazzed' up music, but I do feel that it fit the horses movements down to a 'T'. I did not see Peters ride, I will have to go and look it up to compare.
