This horse makes dressage look like a piece of cake 😍 he gets me so teary everytime I watch this performance. I hope he has an amazing retirement ❤️❤️❤️

Honestly I used to think that dressage riders used to pull too hard on the bit (and don't get me wrong, many do) but after watching several bridle less dressage performances it is very obvious that when horses are going through those specific paces, especially stallions, they naturally hold their heads and necks in that way. While he does look a bit annoyed a bit at the snaffle (no animal *likes* stuff in their mouth) other than that he is very relaxed and really isn't even that foamy at the end considering how intense of a workout that was. He definitely likes attention for sure and was definitely showing off a bit at the end and trying to be the center of attention. Dressage is a finicky thing rather like ballet, almost any horse can be made to do the movements with enough practice but few truly enjoy and excel at it.
Silver Scale Productions
+rubles You have obviously never seen an Arabian or Frisian stallion, they often bend their necks *far* more than most dressage horses even as young colts. Of course not all breeds can or should bow their necks, quarter horses for example physically can't and if they are then something *is* severely wrong. Actually look up the breeds that are most commonly found in dressage, those breeds have a natural form that excels at the paces they must preform. Being a stallion or gelding is also a major factor in the bow, mare's necks just don't naturally bow in the same way and it does change how they preform their paces to a minor degree. As I said too, there are different forms of training in dressage just like there are different forms of training in ballet. In ballet you can reach the same level of experience training in different forms but how you come out of it afterwards depends on how you were trained. If you are trained properly then you will know when it is time to retire and live the rest of your life with no to minimal injuries and in very good health because you will have learned how to balance your diet and additional exercise to keep your body in the optimal condition and learn to pace properly so you are not injured. Or you can push too hard and reach the same level for a short period of time before you inevitably burn out and end up permanently crippled. Dressage is exactly the same and this horse in particular has clearly been trained the right way.

rubles, not all dressage horses are trained that way. Have you never seen horses showing off, racing round the field? That is exactly what they do.
rubles Vor 8 Tage
They're trained to hold their neck that way by forcing their necks into their chests when young. It's uncomfortable and no other horses outsides dressage and showjumping do this. No untrained horse holds their head like that. How would you feel if someone yanked your held into your chest and held it there?

I have a model of this fabulous beast on my shelf...and I just love how through most of his performance here, the beat of his hooves matches a lot of the beats to the song. Like, too perfectly a lot. I never really saw that with a lot of other dressage horses.😍I didn’t know he retired back in 2016, I’m only seeing his now but I’m not surprised! He’s such an amazing horse and I’m happy he has success loving people taking care of him❤️

This is some sick sh** that horse is foaming at the mouth and obviously in pain while having his neck bowed like that. It is amazing this is ok in the eyes of some. Crazy!!

I agree. Dressage is one of the worst horse sports, if not the worst. They're forced to present themselves in such an unnatural way.

Horses create extra saliva when they are relaxed, tense or uncomfortable horses have very dry mouths.

Tinkachu Vor 13 Tage
Why was the horse foaming at the mouth?
rubles Vor 8 Tage
+Larry Brown like I said, its friction in the mouth, that can be caused by the tongue, lips and/or bit. Its not caused by the bit alone but it can contribute to it.
Larry Brown
Larry Brown Vor 8 Tage
I've seen horses worked in a bitless bridle produce plenty of saliva, so how do you explain that?
rubles Vor 8 Tage
+Larry Brown I've seen plenty of horses that were stressed and tense and foaming heavily at the mouth. Foaming is caused by friction, and gives no indication on how a horse is feeling. If your horse has a dry mouth, its probably dehydrated.
Larry Brown
Larry Brown Vor 8 Tage
If he was tense or uncomfortable his mouth would be rigid and dry, his tail would be either clamped down or swishing with annoyance and there is no way he would move so freely. This horse is working hard, concentrating and listening to his rider.
rubles Vor 8 Tage
+Larry Brown The foaming doesnt mean hes relaxed, foaming is from friction in the mouth caused by the bit and the chin strap.

It's nothing to do with what's in the horses mouth or what's round it's nose, it's all to do with the hands on the reins. What you are seeing is the correct gear for top class international dressage. Do you see her using the spurs? No you don't. What you are seeing is horse and rider in harmony, relaxed and happy, no tail swishing, no sign of discomfort.

Idk man, i say Valegro could do this with eyes closed. Im sure he knows it by heart, i could be wrong. I do have one question though, as I'm not well versed in dressage, does rider train the horse from ground up and make routine or is there a trainer who trains horse and makes routine and then rider is given training?

There is nothing wrong with bits. I see all these idiots mention it in the comments. I find nothing wrong with bits. Bits are only used inappropriately if the rider is pulling constantly, jerking, or something like that. Most horses don't care about bits at all. My horse opens her mouth and practically puts it in herself. She plays with her bit when I'm still putting her saddle on her. "BiTs ArE cRuEl" is the majority of ignorant comments.

As a bio-mechanic specialist I would have to say the use of the double bridal is a way to force the horse to submit to what the rider or training is trying to accomplish. Of course the horse is going to excessively salivate, and flex, it hurts and doesn't feel good. Ever gotten an eye lash in your eye or under your contact? The eye waters to create lubrication and attempt to flush out the object. This is a beautiful animal and I think the ride could be just as amazing if more of the horses natural posture was allowed. I can also appreciate the skill required to ride at this level, but as a horse lover I would never allow anyone to do anything which would cause aggravation. As gentle as necessary but as firm as needed but never overly forceful. Hope he enjoys his retirement.
