I sort of got the feeling that Mr. Peters' horse was not as "over-trained" as Anky's horse.

Did you notice that when Mr. Peters went to full collection that the horse offered the old-style croupade kick?  It can be hard to rapidly lighten your aids on an "over-trained" horse.  I also notice that at the beginning that Mr. Peters successfully asked the horse to raise its head by widening his hands, though I did not notice this as much later in the ride.

Anky did not seem to have problems with the reining horse, though she did an abrupt halt rather than a sliding halt.  The horse did not seemed to be bothered by Anky at all.

It sure looked like fun!

That is really fun to watch, Thanks for sharing. Perhaps we have  budding Cowboy Dressage Artists?

Mr. Peters definitly sits a better western seat than Anky.
