Eurodressage writes: "One of Kyra's fondest recollections of Master was her doing a special show with him in Scandinavia. "He loved doing his "fireshow" with 20 people holding a torch, drum music and a lot of atmosphare. When he heard "his" music, he was almost unstoppable. He WANTED to go in with or without me. I remember once in Gothenburg when we were suppose to do a show with him. I trained the people first on foot with the music and his groom Pernilla Gyllbrink was handwalking Master. He heard the music and was almost cantering into the arena with her hanging on. He was not going to miss the show.."
