Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

I recently watched Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the most recent of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and I can say it did not fail to please, with a great cast of new characters and of course a few of the old ones it really was good.

While it isn’t a horsey movie it did have a few of our four legged friends in it, with a very exciting chase through the streets of London, after Jack Sparrow.

Here Jack Sparrow was making his escape atop many different carriages, I won’t say anymore so as not to ruin the movie for anyone that may have not yet seen it, but I would say it is well worth watching.

Seeing this movie reminded me of Heath Ryan’s freestyle dressage performance, which was inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean with its music.

Take a look, he is certainly riding a “black pearl” of a horse ;)

I LOVED the latest Pirates movie too! Of course Johnny Depp is so easy on the eyes! Love Alice Coopers part too =)

I love dressage to music! Especially when it has an interesting twist to it!
