If any of you keep up to date with dressage news you will most certainly know of Moorlands Totilas one of the world’s greatest dressage horses. For those of you that haven’t heard of him he is a Dutch Warmblood, nicknamed Toto, with a host of gold medals and many world records, here is a link to Moorlands Totilas’s Wikipedia page for more info.
Totilas experienced his great success along side dressage rider Edward Gal, together they made a truly stunning team, and here is a video of them.
As you can see for yourself they were very good at what they did, and you can see how happy Totilas is with himself after the performance.
Sadly Totilas’s owners sold him to the Germans, and the riding rights were handed over to German rider Matthias Alexander Rath. (read wikipedia page for further info on sale and ownership) here is a video of Totilas and his new rider Matthias Rath, please feel free to stop watching after a bit, you’ll probably want to.
I think it’s very sad to see this performance.
