Horses are truly magnificent creatures. Not only are they a sight for sore eyes, but they are graceful and incredibly strong as well. The video given below proves to us that these gentle giants are really good at dancing too! When I first played this clip, I wasn’t very impressed with all the horse marching, but as it progressed, my jaw dropped to the ground!
I didn’t know a horse was even capable of something like this! The horse featured in the following footage is a 9-year-old dancing grey mare that is lovingly called Blue Hors Matine. He belongs to Andreas Helgstrand who performs alongside him in this freestyle finale competition held in 2006. You are going to be blown away by this stunning routine!
The judges and commentators are very complimentary of this horse and his performance, right from the beginning. I think to fully appreciate what this horse is doing, you would have to understand just how much practice is required to get a horse to walk, prance, and pirouette like this. Horses don’t do this naturally. It requires an incredible amount of trust and communication with their trainers.
For me, the most impressive steps this horse makes are the ones he takes without moving forward. For a horse to stand and march in place using different steps is just amazing. You can see this horse’s supporting team in the stands, beaming with pride, and rightfully so. Amazing performance.
