The ever elusive Kur.
The finest display of horse and rider beauty, within perfect synchrony of the music to movement.
The dressage musical freestyle.
A creative expression of the relationship between a horse and rider.
We're 2 weeks away from our first Kur. Our first expression of our relationship. Between cute little QH trying his heart out, and rider, there to support him through the whole thing.
And I need a song.
I've gone through my iTunes.
I've gone through my BF's iTunes.
I've gone through YouTube.
And now, I'm turning to you, my blogging buddies.
What becomes our expression?
I have one front-runner. I'm leaving it a secret for now, but will have to give a prize to anyone who suggests my front-runner. ; ) Hmmm...I'll have to think up something good!
I've had some "interesting" suggestions.
Including Rammestein's "Du Hast"...which also would be GREAT for costume class! (How much eyeliner would Moon need...)
Big and Rich's "Ride a Cowboy"...which yes, the BF suggested.
Good ol' America's "A Horse with No Name"
The opening theme for My Little Pony...
A great costume opportunity if Allison and Shyloh hadn't stolen it already!
Newly popular "Mr. Saxobeat"...which while awesome, is probably faster then our walk-trot legs can take us!
I liked the idea of "Wild Wild West", but it seems someone beat me to it...in a walk-trot test to boot!
Rascall Flats "Me and My Gang" is another great "riding" song...
I feel strangely compelled to choose Tody Keith's "Beer for my horses"...but am concerned I might actually have to deliver on my promise...and Moon loves his grain fermented.
Needless to say, none of these have quite captured what I'm looking for.
So I'm hoping for some inspiration. Share with me your favorite freestyles, the music that you love to ride to and any suggestion you can come up with! I wanna know! : )
And remember: We don't canter : ) And since it's a "fun show", we can use whatever moves we'd like. So walk, trot, and leg yield are all in! And halt. I can do a halt. ; )
