Dressage hooligans

They do exist. Rascals.
And in the very top as well!
No, we are not speaking of 2 hairs gone astray, or some dust on the boots, heaven forbid.
This is the real stuff, guys.
The audience at Bremen show got some extra entertainment.
Patrik Kittel and Isabelle Werth both came second .
As Patrik turned up to the prize ceremony without a horse, Isabell generously shared hers.
It looked quite under control to start with. They even took the round of honour.

But then the horse moves over to passage.

Isabell laughs more and more.
But Patrik, poor guy, gets more and more hunch-backed. (Wonder why???)

I just love this.

hahaha...that is awesome! I hope he didn't want to have kids!

Yeah. It all went fine until the passage. I believe it was one of those good ideas that turns out it wasn't good after all....

i had to go to the link and watch the whole thing. It is quite amusing indeed...and imagine that in formal stuffiness of top-level dressage.

Hi Irene and Alberta!
Yes, they really entertained the audience, and at least Isabell had fun!

Thank goodness for hooligans!

Hi Mugs! Well, we could do with some more of them actually. Hm. Think I just got an idea here...
