Facts from My Fiction: Haute Ecole Dressage

In all of the Seen Through the Phantom’s Eyes books, you see references to Claire’s Friesian mare, Josephine.  Josephine was based on a real horse, Goffert 369, whom I was fortunate enough to see performing haute ecole dressage.  This requires a high level of discipline for both horse and rider.

Here is a tiny snippet of the Goffert performance I was fortunate enough to see just six months before this great horse left us forever.
