Horse Dancing

Apologies in advance to Merlin Mann for copping a double feel on his blog today but this video is too good to pass.

I didn’t even know we were training horses to dance, much less they could perform like this. The clip is from the 2006 World Equestrian Games Grand Prix Freestyle Dressage, featuring the horse known in human tongue as Blue Hors Matine and his/her(?) rider Andreas Helgstrand.

Meanwhile horses everywhere scoff at the idea of being “trained” to dance, knowing full well how they throw down when no people are watching.

Innerspace Dolphin

Top speed: 35 mph above water, 20 mph below. Submerses a few feet (but can dive up to 10 ft. briefly) and using its positive buoyancy can jump and barrel roll on the surface.
