"Yeah right!" I thought to myself as I started to
turn off the TV after hearing that the show was
about a dancing horse.
I couldn't imagine watching a documentary about a
dancing horse and its rocky road to success.
I was very skeptical but curious enough to see if this
horse could actually dance.
After all, the truth is sometimes stranger than
fiction -- and a real life dancing horse beats a fictional talking horse.
I was amazed to see the elaborate venue set up for this horse.
The audience was dressed as if they were attending an Opera,
and the venue was beautifully decorated with an orchestra
playing on the stage.
Then out comes Brentina, the dancing horse and main attraction.
I watched mesmerized as the horse started dancing as soon as the
orchestra started playing.
They were in perfect harmony with each other.
The horse timed her dance moves perfectly and gracefully
to match every beautiful note the orchestra was playing.
Not only was this horse dancing, but it was like watching animal ballet.
My "yeah right!" turned into "wow!" as I watched this perfectly
orchestrated performance featuring a combination I never
expected to see...a horse and beautiful, graceful dancing.
Thanks to Brentina, I am now a Dressage fan.
I learned that she participates in Dressage competitions
against other dancing horses, and she also has a website
that offers you the opportunity to purchase her documentary video
and participate in a discussion forum.
