^just look at this video and compare it the current top performances. You will see that the top performances today have more expressive movements but they are full of tension as that tension must be used to make horses do it. the problem is the juding criteria. As long as expression no matter how tense is getting the top scores, that is what riders will do. They are there for winning.
On top of that watch Klimke's seat in the saddle. None of the top performers reaches that perfection of seat and invisible aids.
If you really want to make a difference, then you and all your acquaintences need to send emails and snail mail letters to USEF and FEI referencing this ride and others like it. The problem is the BAD judging which is ignoring the basic stipulated tenants of FEI Articles 401 through 417.
We must swamp their emails and mailboxes demanding that the judges only score according to the rules.
I don't care if I ever win a class, I just want to be able to ride with quiet invisible aids like that and have a horse that happy, loose, relaxed yet willing - it's almost as if the horse is responding to a thought. The transitions in and out are so fluid. Wow. I much prefer this over the exaggerated and tense leg action we see today, and riders spurring and "bouncing" from side to side to get the piaffe.
So much more fluidity than today's 'modern' dressage horses
