ANDREAS HELGSTRAND - WEG2006 Freestyle Final- what a horse

This is something completely not the sort of thing I post .Usually it is about the area or what we are doing. Maybe this is a commiseration for Jack's sister's horse the 3 day eventer ,Beltane Queen. Maisie as she is known to the family and ridden by Nichola Wilson was 2nd reserve to go to the 2016 Olympics in Brazil .Unfortunately she is out of the running as she has had an injury. Even if you are not "into Horses"I am sure you will marvel at this horse's performance and the relationship between the rider and his steed. Jack won 48 races over the sticks and at point to points but there was a lot more about getting to the winning line first. Months and years of training goes into it .With this dressage horse one cannot begin to think of how many hundreds and hundreds of hours of schooling it has taken to reach such level .
