Well, I was acting very.... female doggish this morning while riding. Heat and frustration was getting to me and I definitely had to get off before I completely blew up :(
So until some good footage comes of Greta under new saddle, enjoy this beautiful boy! Is name is Orpheo, or "Merlin" and he is a Spanish Lusitano. I love the Baroque breeds! Absolutely amazing footwork. I'm not a fan at all of bull-fighting, but this is still impressive. This is what I was talking about a few posts ago (the one entitled "Flashes and Figure 8s") about how the Spanish "cowboys" (or bullboys... or whatever they're called.... not the matadors, they just fight the bull!) incorporate dressage into their work. Now it's just mostly for show, but it's still friggin' cool to watch! I wish I could find one of them using the "long stick" that is used to herd the bulls. That is some other really cool stuff to watch!
From 3:09 on they actually show the horse in several bull fighting rounds. I know it bothers me, so I would just stop watching there :(
