i know it isnt supposed to contain lyrics, but what about if its an opera song?
Um ducky, words is words!!!
Even in another language!!
Don't worry too much, ARCA are a little more liberal.
But surely a chickie like you has ALL the karaoke music!!
hahah i cant sing to save myself
i cant decide what to do!!
im either going
drum and bass

Make it fun and to suit the tempo of your horse and you will be fine.
My friend used different disney songs one year and it was fab!
hahah ive just chosen
it was too cute not to choose
now to make a routine between exams and going away!
Wildsteel, the first step to putting a freestyle together is to video your horse in each pace and see how he/she moves. *Then* you play the video and put music on to see what music fits your horse's tempo.
It is always a trap to pick a song and then fit a freestyle around it. I personally start with the test choreography, then video me riding it, and then finally pick some music. I would add that is a rare horse indeed that fits one song. Canter and trot music are two separate beats (3/4 time and 2/4 time).
It is allowed to contain lyrics. It's better not to have the entire freestyle with them but voices are okay. My daughter is doing the State freestyle and the canter has a singer, not the trot or walk though. Wayne Keily did his freestyle with lyrics and it was great.)
I was marked down on my off f/style in Marg river, said that lyrics were not considered appropriate, but no, it is not against the rules.
As I said, tho, ARCA are more liberal as it is a fun day to promote and encourage.
Wayne Keily's f/style to the Mika song was awesome!!!!
