The kür has gone viral!
In the past six months, I've had more than one non-dressage person forward me this video, asking "Is this what you do?" (Oh, how I wish . . . Maybe someday . . .) A couple of them asked me if it was real. Apparently there's a rumor going around that this video is completely faked to match Matine's footfalls with the music. One person forwarded a comment that the whole thing had been created in photoshop. I assured my friends that the video is entirely unfaked. This sort of magic is why we dressage weirdos keep at it.
I've probably watched this thirty times, and it still gives me chills. (Also, take that! everyone who says mares aren't talented dressage mounts.)
