Throwback Thursday: #RaveHorse Broke the Internet On This Day in 2021

A tweet from US Equestrian reminded me that #RaveHorse was a thing just about a year ago at the postponed 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. In honor of this sacred holiday, let’s take a dive down the #RaveHorse (also known as Steffen Peters’ Suppenkaspar) internet rabbit hole:

This freestyle joins the latest in a long string of awesome music choices — and with the ECCO World Championships coming up next month in Denmark, we’re sure to see a few more added to the list, including perhaps a #RaveHorseTheRemix from Steffen and Suppenkaspar as they represent Team USA once again.
