Mary was inspired to create "Breathtaking" after having spent time in the Lower Saxony region of Germany where Hanoverians are bred. She went abroad with friends to purchase a horse for a friend, and with every breeder's facility they went to,
she was impressed with the exceptional way in which the horses were presented and with their level of training. One of the most extravagant movements in dressage not only to watch, but to ride is the extended trot. With "Breathtaking" Mary captures that powerful movement, without tack and rider, so that the beautiful, curvaceous lines can be enjoyed.
