The Olympics games include many competitions. Track racing, gymnastics, and swimming are probably some of the most popular sports. But dressage competitions are also widely-appreciated and incredibly popular. In this clip, we get to see a performance from a man named Severo Jurado from Spain. He and his horse, Lorenzo, are going to blow your mind.
They competed in this year’s Olympics as well. They executed their routine to Santana’s ‘smooth.’ However, this clip shares a performance they did at an earlier event. The audience was stunned when the duo started doing their unbelievable act on the field. What surprised me the most is the perfect timing of the beautiful horse. His performance is impeccable.
This routine starts out with the horse doing at least three different gaits in the first minute. Each time the music changes, the horse does a different type of step. I can’t imagine how a human could teach a horse how to do those different steps, much less in time to a song. This horse steps to the beat of the music and never misses a cue, responding to the slightest touch.
Jurado has done an amazing job not only training this horse but performing with him. These two understand each other perfectly and must have an incredible bond. It certainly shows in this performance.
Watch this jaw-dropping routine below in the video just below.
