H&H reviews Great Dressage Horses 2 on DVD
THIS is a treat. It’s incredible to see how competitors and their horses have changed over the past few decades. And being a greatest hits compilation, it’s all good bits without the dullness.
Just comparing Anky van Grunsven’s Bonfire to her latest medallist, Salinero, is fascinating. And then contrast Farbenfroh, Invasor, Blue Hors Matine — they couldn’t be more different.
Seeing how the venues have changed over the years, and spectator numbers, is also intriguing.
Best of all, check out the sponsors at Verden — Pritt, seriously, glue advertising at a horse show. Sponsorship managers with a sense of humour — marvellous.
