An amazing athlete.
my brother showed me that, I couldn't believe it. He said the horse is probably worth $500,000.
He's well-trained, obviously capable, if he's intact and they can put him to stud, he'd be worth a fortune in the right circles.
I am sure, he moves like a cat!
I'm not a big fan of the bull fights in general, but I must admit that it is awesome to watch dressage moves I've only seen done for show put to use in a practical way. And he's so fluid - mind-boggling to me.
A less practical, but still spectacular display:
I got to see the Lippizaners when I was too young to really appreciate it, but they're still amazing:
I saw them once when I was young also.
I saw this horse at the Omak Stampede one year that was amazing like that also.
And then we have the American versions of equine athletes, with a twist:

Gorgeous videos of the horses!...but I must confess I hate bull fighting - it's totally barbaric
And some of the horses are not as good as Merlin - they can get ripped up bad or killed. I don't like that part either.
