A Dancing Saddle


This is not your everyday saddle, definitely. This is an Egyptian dancing horse saddle and they aren't that comfortable for riding, in my opinion. The dancing horses are a tradition similar to high level dressage in that the movements find their origins in warfare and have now been refined to be performed to music.

that is lovely, but I can imagine it would be a bit uncomfortable! Are they Arabian horses trained to dance like Lipizzaners?
