Look at the difference 26 years make!!

Wow!  Looks at the difference 26 years makes in the sport of dressage......

1984 Olympics

2010 Grand Prix Freestyle


  1. What's missing is a video of Charlotte Dujardin and VALEGRO who demolished Totilas' best scores at the London Olympics!

  2. Gotta agree with the above comment about Velegro, he was amazing :)

  3. I didn't see the London Olympics. I'll have to look them up. :) I was just comparing the exaggerated movement they are scoring these days compared to the correct movement they used to score 26 years ago and Totilas was the first one to show up on Youtube, not to mention he's known for his exaggerated movement lol!

  4. I agree with you. I am more a fan of correct movement than all the flashy high knees. Totilas flings his front knees up but sometimes his hock are just dragging along behind. I much prefer Klimke's test!!
