Not heraldry... but still

In a day and age of turbine powered tanks, and multi million dollar jet fighters, the art of combat grade horse riding has been lost to its descendants, mostly the practitioners of dressage riding.

So, when I see skill of this magnitude, and a horse this well trained, it DOES take me back to what the best knights and riders of the middle ages must have been capable of.

Just remember that every step and stride that horse is doing is descended from tricks and maneuvers that were meant to make a knight a killing machine on the battlefield of Europe.
