Fauna: Hip Hop Dressage

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

YouTube user philpheburbs pairs a winning performance from a dressage competition with an explicit, but perfectly timed, hip hop track for a hilarious effect. The strange thing is that the original music from Andreas Helgstrand's performance at the World Equestrian Games in 2006 isn't any less weird. Dressage is defined by the International Equestrian Federation as "the highest form of horse training," and is sometimes called "horse ballet."
