Dancing Horses


I’m back! My Forewarning Cover 2hiatus from blogging and writing lasted longer than I expected but I’m getting back in the saddle again. Today I’m starting with a short post highlighting some delightful equestrian performances.


FOREWARNING on sale for $2.99 for this weekend only on Amazon and B&N


The first is from the Equitana Hop Top Show 2015 and features Alizée Froment and her horse Mistral du Coussoul doing a lovely freestyle, performing high level (Grand Prix) movements, with no bridle.



The next one is a Billy Ray Cyrus video of a horse line dancing to his Achy Breaky Heart song. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a You Tube video of the whole dance, so you’ll need to belong to Facebook to see more than this short bit.

At the 2006 World Equestrian Games the wonderful mare Blue Hors Matine surprised the staid dressage world by doing a marvelous freestyle to Hip Hop music.



Hope you enjoy the videos and come back again next week.

  1. Oh where do I begin? First, welcome back. I am so far behind on reading everyone’s posts. I was just thinking I hadn’t seen anything in my emails from you for awhile. The videos; the first one. WOW! I would love to see one of these shows! The beauty, the grace of the horse, rider and scenery. I love watching these horses in motion. The line dance. I loved it! I had seen it before. I laughed and loved it. And watched it again. The last video. I can’t say I liked the choice of music, but the horse could not have been more in sync! Well done. Thank you for posting. I have to repost. Have a great weekend, and again, welcome back. 🙂

    To all horse lovers, and to all animal lovers, or anyone who loves to see music and animals together in perfect sync, here is a post of videos that I could watch over and over. Enjoy!

    We;come back, Kate. I’ve missed your posts. And this is right up there with the best ones. I’m in love with the first horse, Mistral! OMG! He was amazing, those steps so intricate and with the music. Just beautiful. Do you think he knows how awesome he is. I didn’t really have time to watch all the way through, but I couldn’t stop. I too will be sharing. This was just super.
    I’d seen the Achy Breaky heart one. Clever! The grey horse in the last video was gorgeous, and I didn’t like the music either, but the horse and rider were amazing!
    Thanks so much, Kate. Glad to have you back. 🙂

    • Oh yeah, both Mistral and Matine knew they were stars! (She’s dead now.) At that level they know they’re special and love the attention and applause. Some become definite hams. It’s often hard for them to retire. Even my Glory misses getting all spiffed up for the show ring, and she was at a much lower level.
      Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh, I just loved that! So much fun to watch!

  5. YES! I enjoyed the videos. And yes, I’ll surely be back. Thank you!

    Cheryll Robb shared this on her blog and I just loved it so wanted to share with you too.. Dancing and horses and do go to the link on Facebook which has the line dancing horse – fabulous.

  8. Absolutely magnificent. I love dancing horses. How in the world do they do it?

    • Lots of training! And talented horses who like to perform. Thanks for stopping by.

      • I haven’t seen dancing horses for a long time. I saw a vid once on training horses. Their ankles looked so delicate as if they could twist and break one. So graceful for such a large animal.
