[QUOTE=egontoast;1844130]I think it hit the mark with that horse, and not because of the name.
he’s not a swan lake type horse.
and I am an Elvis P fan so for me it was a good match![/QUOTE] Well I guess if you actually like Elvis the singer then I guess the music would be your cup of tea. I wish she had used some of the really nice Elvis songs Like ‘always on my mind’ and oh, a couple of others, names escape me at the moment - you can tell I’m not really a fan but concede he had great voice and some nice toons.
If we are going to use music from like-named singers, I’d better get a horse caled Rufus so I can use Rufus Wainwright music! I do think the trend is a bit twee though, like Just a Gigolo for Gigolo, yick, didn’t like it at all, too easy, too obvious. Dressage should and could be more groovy if people were less conservative, i.e Lingh’s former trance freestyle (didn’t see his test this time, don’t know if he’s still using it, but that is more my style) Let’s get with IT dressage - no more bloody musak and Yamaha Organ versions of the Beatles and Abba!!! Seems like freestyle music is being selected for people in their 60’s (snore) but I guess since the judges are in their sixties that makes sense. BUT many of the riders are young and groovy, that sould be reflected in music too, kinda like Lady Marmalade for Matine, THAT was cool. Should be more of it.
