Anky goes western!

I didn't realize that the 3 time Olympic Gold medal winner and top of the world FEI  Dressage Freestyle champion picked up a "hobby" of reining. Here she is performing at the 2010 FEI games.

Here she is at the 2006 WEG finals performing her winning ride.

I enjoyed seeing the 2006 final again. I didn't know about the western reining. Amazing.

Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

I'm guessing that she was making a point with that particular song she chose for her reining performance. but it was terribly annoying and distracting.
But their performance was great! Nice to see her branching out into other disciplines.

To me Anky is a good "rider" but not a good horsewoman. I greatly dislike her unjust training methods and ways of "making" a dressage horse. Neat to see her cross disciplines though.

Yupe, I saw her ride in the team medal competition for reining. She had the flashiest shirt out there. LOL
