Original Compositions for Equestrian Dressage

I am creating a musical freestyle Dressage test and composing the music to accompany it. The equestrian sport of Dressage involves an event called the musical freestyle where the horse's movements are synchronized to music, so that the end result resembles equestrian ballet. Generally the music is taken from popular songs and show tunes or old classical favorites, but this project will create original music specifically for one musical freestyle test. The music can be recorded and played while the horse is performing in a competition, or performed with live musicians in a more informal setting.
