Imagine: your horse is passing through the Brandenburger Tor, and... The energy bursts out. You get the goose bumps. The crowd is screaming in excitement. The music pumps you and your horse up. At some point your breath is taken. The horse runs in. She knows what to do. You trust, she does. You give the right signs – the horse goes into a canter. You move a few inches to a side – now, the pace. You slow down. The crowd is crying. You breathe out.
Want to experience that? Come and see Magnús Skúlason and Valsa for yourself. Their performance represents a miracle of professionalism and cooperation. The miracle of balance. Magnús says: “Balance is always a challenge, but I like that.”
