Representing: Stridsholt Dressage
Story: For Simon and Spiegelau a halter class in a predominantly western-themed event was not their typical outing - to say they were a little out of their element would be an understatement. But a little variety never hurt anyone and it would be a nice, fresh touch after their busy last few months with dressage shows en masse.
Spiegelau had not been shown in-hand since his early days at the Danish Warmblood gradings, but he was used to doing the trot-ups before large shows. As for Simon, said trot-ups were his only experience in the halter discipline. Not that it concerned him the least - he knew his horse through-and-through . And although Spiegelau was prone to happy outbursts of energy he was not a horse who would run you over or drag you off. Just that 'showing off' characteristic that Simon valued so highly (...in part, admitted, because he possesssed it himself).
As they waited for their turn, Simon took the chance to eye of the competition. A dark-haired, bearded man leading a grey Zlesdin caught his attention and he looked them up on the starting list: Oliver Loran and Havhingsten. Meeting another entrant from Denmark so far away was a fun coincidence; it only happened so rarely. Perhaps he would stroll over later to exchange a few niceties - as this pair was new to the show scene he had a feeling he would be seeing them again.
But first: a selfie.

It's been a while since I last made a halter entry... For reasons unknown. I rather like making them; horses strutting and handlers trying to keep up = win/win
...unlike Phuong (whose short legs reeeaally have to work for it XD ), Simon has no issues keeping up with a long-legged warmblood in the trot. Boi can run. And while he's at it; he wastes no chance to dress up and be fabulous.
Danish warmbloods are traditionally shown with handlers dressed in red/white (like so: dvherning.dk/images/ImageRotat…
) buuut that's not fancy enough for an Official Appearance for this dude... Sticking to the red/white colour scheme, though
Spiegelau may have rounded 16 and is a seasoned dressage veteran, buuut that has never stopped him from striking out in weird poses, hehe
Wanted to try a somewhat unconventional pose; so here's an energetic outburst just to announce that he's HERE and ready to show himself off. Like owner, like horse... x)
Nnnnot sure the building in the background has the right colour (doesn't show on map, so I picked the same colour as foreground building), but here's the Angle
it was intended as ^^
Spiegelau and Simon reside with meee
