One Feedback on "Dressage"


Andreas Helgstrand is brilliant. His performance on Blue Hors Matine for 2006 WEG Games was captivating, emotional and a true wonder. It was magical in every sense of the word. I can watch the video over and over again in awe and tingle with unending excitement. No other performance can ever be compared to that single performance. Bravo to horse and rider for making history..!!!
