Totilas Retires

 

If you’ve read this blog for awhile you’ll know I have a thing for horses. And that I love Dressage. Hence you will understand where this particular post is coming from.

The lovely and talented Totilas has been retired due to an injury.  It means that we will not get to see Totilas and Valegro face off at least somewhat properly for the first time. I still wish we had gotten to see the two greatest Dressage pairs (Valegro and Dujardin; Totilas and Gal) ride, but Alexander-Rath is finally hitting a point where he and Totilas had made the much needed connection to truly be a team, unlike the last time they faced Valegro and Dujardin.

World Record Dressage Rides

Being honest, I completely jacked these videos from Horse Nation, where they were posted awhile ago. They’re lovely rides and worthy of the scores, but you don’t see enough rides like this with riders who don’t warf on the horses’ faces.
