It could be fun.
Now doing a test to music has been high on my wish list for a long time. This fun show seemed like the perfect time and doing with Karen and her stallion would make it even more fun. The tricky part was finding time to get together to practice. I have a full size ring so it made sense for it to be here.
Karen found the music and we played with some choreography via google docs and I tried riding to it to figure out the timing. Yesterday evening she arrived so that we could spend Sunday morning pulling together the choreography.
Because that should be enough time, right?
Irish was so excited to see Kalimo. He's so in love it's pathetic. Carmen could have cared less.
|full on bromance!|
We rode and discussed and I began to wonder if we'd figure it out. Finally we had a plan and we rode it through the music and it worked! I then asked Ed to come up and video it so we could review it. AT the end he said 'I expected that I would be trying to conceal my laughter but that looked good'.
Oh ye of little faith. Just because we said that we weren't sure what we were doing......
After we were all exhausted.
|Kalimo: time for a nap|
|Carmen: can you just calm down?|
|doesn't he look great in my field?|
Then it was time to go home.
It was so much to play with this. We will practice it on our own and, hopefully, have one more chance at a rehearsal. But like Karen said, this is more for fun and love then anything else.
So if you are at the show in September you will see us debut our dance number. And just to get you interested, here's a small preview:
I am so excited. Janet, I hope that you can come and see it.
Hopefully, Carmen won't add any extra drama....
Oh this is so cool. I'd love to do one of those one day. Our horses are not close enough in size though. I can't wait to see your final performance.ReplyDelete
I am hopeful that our final performance will not have any fart induced bolts. :D I am looking forward to it and because it is for fun the pressure is much less.Delete
I vote for a longer preview!!!ReplyDelete
LOL I will see what I can do! I don't want to give it all away.Delete
Wait....that preview isn’t long enough!ReplyDelete
Sorry. There will be a full video after we ride it but I will see what i can do about a longer video....Delete
wow, that is amazing and I'm so jealous of people who live less than several thousand kilometers from you!ReplyDelete
LOL, you mean that you are not coming?? Dont' worry, I'll make sure that there's a video.Delete
omgosh that is so friggin exciting!!! can't wait to see how it develops!!! also those bromance pics are adorable <3ReplyDelete
IT is exciting. I'm glad that it's for 'fun' or else I'd be freaking out. But this is all in keeping with my plans/goals for this year.Delete
I love this idea. I was really kind of nervous for you when you said stallion... A stallion and mare pas de deux seems... daunting. But that looks to be one well-behaved stallion!ReplyDelete
That little tease was definitely too short, but what I saw looks very promising!
Yeah that's fair. Kalimo is an awesome stallion- very calm and friendly. Partly his temperament and partly the way that they are raised in Spain.Delete
That sounds like a lot of fun. I have a portable speaker that I take into my arena because I love riding to music. I'd love to be on an equestrian drill team.ReplyDelete
Oh that would be fun! I have a portable speaker but it's not quite loud enough to be heard in my whole ring.Delete
This is so cool. I am also sad the preview wasn't longer, haha!ReplyDelete
thanks. Sorry. :)Delete
I love the idea of riding to music.ReplyDelete
It is a lot of fun.Delete
C'mon that's too short a video! You two are going to have a blast!ReplyDelete
