A few years ago, Moorland’s Totilas was the talk of the equestrian world. With his Dutch trainer/rider, Edward Gal, Totilas broke every record in grand prix dressage. He won every gold he could win at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Fans were just starting to speculate on what the horse might be able to accomplish at the 2012 Olympics in London when he was sold to German breeder Paul Schockemöhle and his competition career reassigned to a young rider named Matthias Rath.
Since Totilas’ disappearance from the show ring, his records have all been broken by the great British horse-and-rider team of Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro. With his re-entry into competition, Rath is likely working toward a spot on Germany’s team for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy later this summer. Will we see a head-to-head battle between the two greatest dressage horses of the modern age?
