The Musical Freestyle That Sparked My Passion for Dressage- "One Moment In Time" Ridden by Robert Dover

"Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will be free."

- Lyrics to One Moment in Time by Whitney Houston

This is the freestyle that started it all! Before I saw this performance by Robert Dover at the Washington International Horse Show, I was an aspiring jumper rider. I watched this video (on a VHS tape- the old days!) just about every day during my 7th grade year. It also inspired me to ride a Graduation Freestyle to "One Moment in Time" at my high school. I was allowed to ride on the field hockey field with the entire student body watching! Years later, I met Robert and was able to tell him how much he inspired me. It is an old video but still very magical. Enjoy!
