UPDATE JAN 2013 - TINNE VILHELMSSON-SILFVÉN & DON AURIELLO WIN WORLD DRESSAGE MASTERS PALM BEACH FREESTYLE.
WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, Jan. 26–Tinne Vilhelmsson-Silfvén did a final tweaking of the Freestyle on Don Auriello, her Olympic mount, to produce their first World Dressage Masters Grand Prix Freestyle victory with a score of 84.075 per cent at the show where they began their Grand Prix career three winters ago.
A creative partnership with Freestyle composer and choreographer Cees Slings has led to performances that Stephen Clarke of Great Britain and president of the ground jury at last summer’s Olympics declared after she rode Don Auriello to victory in January’s World Dressage Masters in Florida:
“Tinne’s ride demonstrates what dressage should be all about, uphill, complete harmony, with the horse an outstanding picture.”
UPDATE DECEMBER 2012 - TINNE VILHELMSON SILFVÉN & DON AURIELLO SMASH 80% BARRIER WITH VICTORY AT STOCKHOLM WORLD CUP FREESTYLE
In December 2012 Tinne and Anton won the Swedish International Horse Show with a double victory. Besides winning the kür on Sunday she scored a personal best both in Grand Prix on Saturday and Grand Prix Kür, with a score of 84.70%.
For the very first time in dressage history: a full freestyle music video called "Who's Anton?".
It was the second time that Swedish dressage rider Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén & Don Aurelio performed their brandnew London 2012 freestyle at the CHIO Rotterdam, June 24 2012. Leaving Dutch topriders like Edward Gal, Imke Schellekens Bartels and Anky van Grunsven behind her. Two days before Tinne also won the Grand Prix.
This video shows the skills of a worldclass toprider and a world-class tophorse, using top quality, tailormade freestyle.
This is what freestyle dressage is all about; dancing to the rhythm and the groove of the music, each transition accented and with a breathless flow in following the tempo of the horse in all it's gaits.
