Question Of The Week

meg and sofie in turn

I will be doing a full-on post tomorrow. I've come out of my prolonged writer's block stupor, so I've been working on my novel quite a bit, and thus neglecting the blog.

I've decided to try to post a fun weekly question for readers to answer (I will answer them myself also, because I'm just cool like that). Some will have to do with dressage, some will have to do with horses in general. So here goes:

What music would make the best dressage freestyle for your horse?

My ultimate, upper-level, probably unreachable dream would be to do a dressage freestyle to "Telephone" by Lady Gaga. When I listen to that song I can see exactly how it would go, and it would be awesome. But since I don't have the horse for that right now (I love the Sofa, but she would either laugh at or kill me if I asked her to passage), I think the best music for Sofa to dance to would be a Pink medley. Probably a mash-up of "So What", "Stupid Girls", and maybe "Funhouse". I think those songs express her attitude, and it would probably be pretty hilarious to watch. Especially if she had one of her "acting out" moments.


  1. I would love to do a freestyle to Jonsi's "Go Do" I think it would really fit Sora as well and I've spent so much time picturing exactly what we would do to the music =)

    I love your mash-up for Sofie lol

  2. LOL at Sofie Acting Out mental image. I tihnk she would rock "So What". Absolutely rock it. Like the judges would sprout mohawks Sofie would be rocking it so hard. And you don't have to wait until Grand Prix to do a freestyle! I would love to do a Second or Third level routine on Greta..... when we get there....... in twenty years haha.

    I love to do something to "Dirty Harry" by Gorillaz (it would need some mixing up), any M.I.A. or Coldplay song mixes, or "M.A.G.I.C." by the Sound of Arrows (and they're Swedish too, ain't that ironic?) And I would love, LOVE to do a routine to some bhangra music, like Disco Khisko from the movie Dil Bole Hadippa. Awesome stuff. Or Gifted by N.A.S.A. (without KanYe West's part... yuck)

    Oh, but there are so many more. The possibilites are endless.
