Hi! I am new to dressage, I just bought a beautiful imported Freisan Arab TB cross (because I didn't want a pony sized horse) from Europe who has been trained to the Grand Prix level. We went to our first rated show and got all 8s and 9s in Training Level One, is that good? My trainer rode him in Grand Prix and he won the championship, so I guess that's okay. I was very worried because he was just trimmed by our Strasser guy and the footing wasn't very good.

Did your trainers mom judge? Or your trainers husband? It's only bad if the breeder flew in from Gronignen especially to judge your class but that's that no one will recongnise them. y'gotta be ribboned by a name.

Can you do a clinic at my farm? We got some percheron cross foundation stock for our new stud book Swaledale Sportzherde.

I'm glad I found where to buy my next horse. I've been looking for years, and its SOOO hard to get any quality TB/Friesian/Arab crosses in the states. Are breeding programs are just so behind the europeans.

So what was your music for the freestyle? You do know that its best to get something rockin', the judges love to have something to dance to while judging your tests. I prefer yodelling myself, but I'm rather old-fashioned.

I've found a whole new way of riding that's gonna smash RollKur in the dirt: The ultimate inside hand crossed over the withers to the outside. You know, so you can get the big stupid SOB horse to turn? I'm telling you, that's going to completely revolutionize dressage. Between that and practicing my freestyles via boombox-tied-to-pommel like a flask case and I've been pratcicing in a basketball court for it's unbelievable acoustics...who's gonna be able to touch this? Anky, step aside I say.

Thinking oabout blinging my dress boots into a flip flop pattern too, you know, so the judges take note? Yeah, rock on my friends!

Big rip. You only got those scores because your trainer warmed your horse up for you. Then rode in the warm up ring with a big (okay, medium) woody on so as to distract the judge from your hellacious ride. Oh and another thing? I hear your horse freebases peeps.

Ahh, Geek, you missed me at the show... you know, I had the Big Lick TWH (rescued from the slaughter truck) in the Intro A musical freestyle. He went really well because I had him in a tack noseband (the kind with bling on the inside) and a sidepull bridle. One of our special moves was the one-rein stop I did for my final halt. I borrowed the "Pomp and Circumstance" music from the Germans at the WEG because I thought it was so, um, lyrical. Yeah, lyrical.

My point, along with Geek, is that if you just mention one of the topics included in our posts, you can get the trainwreckers instantly rolling. What's sad is that it has to be actually pointed out to some on this board for them to understand (or not...).

We all need to be able to laugh at ourselves and our prejudices. It certainly keeps me from taking myself too seriously. :winkgrin:

We were set back a year when I found out that my custom-made treeless saddle didn't fit properly (which is of course the reason we couldn't leg yield). Also, my trainer told me I was using the wrong boots on my horse. You really need Eskadrons to leg yield properly. I also had the wrong bit. I was riding in a snaffle but my trainer let me know that I needed a gold-plated bit handcrafted in an Swedish mountain village to get "true" connection.

Pat Boone had some "friends" (yes, yes, with friends like this...) who suggested he do an album of metal favorites. In his own inimitable style. I am not joking. I have one of possibly only four copies sold (a lovely gift given to me by my lab for one birthday...and when I wanted to piss off my colleagues on my hall, we would get the CD going, crank it up, open the door, and let the, um, music waft out).

He does "Stairway to Heaven," "Smoke on the Water," "Love Hurts," and several others. Always cheers me up, because you have to think, "You know, you could be reduced to doing something like this CD...at least your work will stand the test of time, and won't necessarily make anyone hurl. And your work may help alleviate depression, while his may actually cause it."

So you see, a truly fine selection for anyone's freestyle, especially an 18hh GV/Thelwell pony cross. Or whatever it was I rode.

And RR - try the mellowcreme pumpkins. More to them than the candy corn. The candy corn is just for a quick emergency sugar hit, but it doesn't stay with you like mellowcreme pumpkins.

And yes, we are back to freebasing peeps. Now that they are plentiful, we did in a small box of the pumpkin heads last night. Two as a greeting coming in from the pasture, 8 while we were grooming and tacking up, and then two in pieces on top of the bran/alfalfa pellets/beet pulp mash with pancake syrup (great bottle, when empty it will be refilled with molasses).

What does this have to do with dressage, you might ask? Well, this was before/during/after a dressage lesson. And a good one, thanks to all that sugar.

Meanwhile, while we are busy overwhelming the judge: can my TB have a play date with Ted? A game of halter tag? Or the game of let's trot around and find the carrots in the field?

ah, ok, thanks for the sermon.

actually, these threads are fairly obviously the so called 'laugh at ourselves' threads, and uh, yeah, they're just not something i find funny. and no, that doesn't make me disabled or mentally ill or retarded, if i don't find something funny that you do find funny.


But the point is...why the hell do you still read them??? and even more...decide to comment? Its fine you dont find it funny. You just want attention. People, me included should really stop giving you attention. Like i said before......You are sad.

Meanwhile, while we are busy overwhelming the judge: can my TB have a play date with Ted? A game of halter tag? Or the game of let's trot around and find the carrots in the field?


I tink you may be on to something there....first, you could introduce Ted to the multitude of other horses that want to meet him over a fence, where they can play grab ass for about 8 hours straight. Then, in true Easter Egg hunt fashion, hide Peeps around the pasture and turn them all loose in it and see who finds the most. This will determine who is the biggest Peep Ho. And since they all played grab ass over the fence for 8 hours staright, they will no longer be interested with each other and only feel the need to find the Peeps.

This could actually become an Olympic event, no?

MAJOR problem with this scenario. While Ted is a major peep Ho, he is also a Big Weenie. He plays grab ass and face over the fence with any horse that will condescend to play with him. But when they're all together...Ted hides. Really. It could be pouring out, he will be the lone horse standing there, miserably, because he can't go into the shed with the other horses. So the horses must be let out in INDIVIDUAL turnouts for peep seeking, at the same time, so that Ted has an equal shot. We have to level the playing field for the weenies amongst us.

Unicorns have no chestnuts as they were created immediately and intact by a poof of God's breath, which smells of frankincense and myrrh and cannot, by definition, include smelly things like chestnuts. Anything smelly (or smelling remotely of sulphur as Hugo Chavez recently pointed out) is of the devil.

Unicorn-Ted was living proof of creationism at it's best. No chestnuts, extra toes and an instant horn (attached with duct tape, I'm sure), ridden by a born-again virgin. Only Geek, YOU were the creator! Wow! It's the weekend, so you can take a well deserved, non-sectarian rest on either or, if you're really ecumenical, BOTH days!

This is known to the congnoscenti as the "Geek-Ted" cult. Peeps are the sacrament. Duct tape, the vestments. Weekends are holy days, when Geek and Ted share communion.

Traditional doctrine holds that rollkur is a mortal sin, though a heretic from Holland considers it righteous. But since the Holland Heretic is actually a big-time gold winning priestess, we lowly sinners are confused and avoid the real issues by watching Veronica Mars box sets, where all small mysteries are solved in one episode, big mysteries take a season -- and NO commercials!

Armageddon is the next stop on this choo choo. But it's a fun ride, as all rides to hell should be.

I remember the chestnut threads. So long ago, they had been repressed. I remember a certain someone (someone with, apparently, little sense of humor) telling me that I was WRONG WRONG WRONG, even when I quoted from noted anatomists writings on the subject.

But then again, we all know anatomists are by definition evolutionists, so there was my problem. If chestnuts come straight from the Almighty, then that would be where I went wrong....

And I resemble the remark about hauling with a smartcar. My battered and worn Geo Metro is just back from hauling my American Warmblood (1/4 Clyde, 3/4 TB) to a clinic with a BNT. But my trailer is all aluminum, so it's ok.

Anatomists are agents of Satan. Chestnuts are the signs of the chosen. There aren't many, but I think it means heaven is full of horses, and I'm stuck here on earth with my lovely, imperfect Dobbin and enjoying myself much on the road to hell..

Your trailer is OK if at least some joints and/or cracks are held together with duct tape. I, personally, have been putting off doing this with my shower head. It sprouted a crack that I debate sealing with duct tape ( 10 cents for 1 1/2 inches) vs. buying a new shower head ($25 minimum). Dobbin, meanwhile, recently got a $1000 Wintec saddle.

I vote duct tape. It comes in clear. I know this, because I fixed a leak and a small dry wall crack in the shower of our old house just before we sold it. Hopefully the new owner does not frequent this board.

I do not have duct tape on the trailer. But there is some on the Geo. And electrical tape on my bridle (or is that bridal?) and boots.

And do the horses in heaven have chestnuts?

Must be some sort of throwback.Could you put little finger cymbals on the extra toes and on his legs, so that he could accompany his freestyle music? The extra toes wouldn't have to be opposable, like thumbs - they could just hang there and flop like dewclaws - and the cymbals could CHING CHING CHA-CHING in time to his steps. That might just be the difference between leading the victory gallop and eating the victory gallop leader's dust.

I wasn't too sure if I should post on here, because I thought it might be bragging, but I just took my super high quality eight stallions to a dressage show, and I have to say, we totally cleaned up. Here was our results:

Potty Head, 2004 Gypsy Snare Drum x Fresian x Tibetian TB stallion: 52.866% at TL1 and 45.223% at 1st 2

Mucho Ballz, 2005 Percheron x Shetland x Breeding Stock Paint stallion: 48.623% at 1st 1 and 33.992% at 1st 4

IMA Dumboy, 2005 Shetland cross stallion: 53.877% at 3rd 1 and 43.921% at 3rd 3

Hezgota Namenowon Cansay, 2006 Registered Grade stallion: 35.822% at 4th 1 and 38.792% at 4th 2

StiffiesRUS, 1979 Fresian x Percheron x Clydesdale x TB x Arab stallion: HIGH POINT CHAMPION!!!! 69.541% at TL 1!!! (excused for lameness at TL 2, but would have rocked the house if only that stupid judge had trusted me that the little hitch in his stride was nothing, and he ALWAYS goes down like that before a test! It's part of his warmup!!!)

Everyone else did really really well, but these were our high-point boys of the day! We're so proud!!!!!! We LOFF our boys and fondle their balls every day so they are the happiest stallions. We always make sure their sheaths are really really clean before every test, sometimes using spit polish, and I know that makes them happier. You can email me at theverybeststallions@trainthemwithmyluuuv.com (ihavetheverybeststallions@trainthemwithmyluuuuuuu v.com) for their stud fees, 'cause I don't want Erin mad at me for advertising but these are some HOT HOT boys!!!!

Here's a picture: http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e185/MoonriseStables/Misc/TrailerRig.jpg We are going to paint the trailer to match, and put a big picture of balls on the side so everyone knows we have TOP QUALITY STUDS inside!!!

There are six stinking (but very clean) big stallioons our front, chained to the smart car and driven by your good self up top of the gooseneck and weilding a giant carrot stick. Come on- confess!Oh goodness no, I would NEVER chain my darling baby stallie-wallies to ANYthing! What if their sheaths got dirty???? What if the first one pooped, then the next in line would have to poop on top of it, and the next in line after that, and so on, and then I'd have to turn around and let the first one have a go again, and then my SmartTruck wouldn't fit over top of the poop pile!!

It is, of course, Photoshopped, though - I have to cut out the Gigantic Trophy Bowl That Would Make You All Jealous. It was filled with cheese. And I had to cut out the background so you wouldn't see that we were at a USDF CSI**** dressage show. That would make you jealous too, especially if you saw Mr. Biggest Name Trainer In All of Dressage Ever grooming for me. Plus, it would make you all want to breed to my stallions even more, and then Erin would get even madder at me. I tell her that it isn't MY fault I have the perfectest-werfectest stallie-studdikins ever, but she's tells me I have to go su...um, clean my boys.

fiona, I'm so glad you asked!!! Really, all you need is an abundance of luuuuuuuurve, and various vegetables. You have gotten close to our training methods, but like many newbies you know just enough to be dangerous. So I will enlighten you. Never, ever, ever, EVER discipline your horse - he will never trust you again and won't let you read his mind any more. However, you have to get him trained, so when he is lame, you must work him until he starts to stagger. Then, tie up the offending leg so it isn't being hurt while he is standing, because you might do damage to it if he stands on it. He will trust you, because he knows you luuuuuuv him.

indyblue, you absolutely HAVE to email me!!! You aren't allowed to PM me because *Someone* monitors the PMs, which is totally unfair, if you ask me. But it sounds like my Moochey-Woochey will be just perfect with your mare. I totally agree that colored Shetland crosses are the next hottest thing, and anyone who disagrees is, well I hate to say it, but just kinda dumb. His feet will be perfect for her foal. And my Moochey would never ever bolt, but I won't be offended that you said he might. You can see from his awesome dressage score at a CSI**** event that he is a great mover. My Moochey will make a perfect foal out of your old nag - wait, I meant to type MARE!!!, so you don't have to worry about that. Anky is going to be SOOO jealous, I bet she'll try to buy the foal before it's even born!

This STUPID song is still stuck in my head. Please someone, make it STOP!

I swear......If I had a billion dollars I would pay someone to do a musical freestyle to Megadeaths "Symphonie of Destruction" just to see the look on peoples faces!!

I would do this for far less. Both Ted and I are cheap dates. Even better because we'd do a crappy freestyle, and a First level one at that.

We'd charge only, say, show fees plus the guarantee of a huge rosette with tassles. Any color.

Jude, I am very interested in learning more about sporthorse breeding. I understand David Hasselhoff is your head semen collector. I would love to learn from him. Can I be a (hardly) working student?

And Rebe, that was brilliant. Between Jude, Rebe, YF, and RR, I have salad spittle all over the keyboard. And I am wheezing from laughing.

Anatomists are agents of Satan. Chestnuts are the signs of the chosen. There aren't many, but I think it means heaven is full of horses, and I'm stuck here on earth with my lovely, imperfect Dobbin and enjoying myself much on the road to hell..

Your trailer is OK if at least some joints and/or cracks are held together with duct tape. I, personally, have been putting off doing this with my shower head. It sprouted a crack that I debate sealing with duct tape ( 10 cents for 1 1/2 inches) vs. buying a new shower head ($25 minimum). Dobbin, meanwhile, recently got a $1000 Wintec saddle.

Oh, does this one count? http://family.webshots.com/photo/2659990310087069749azvjTS

It is held together with various coats of paint, duct tape, baling wire, bubble gum, and spit.

DGRH, David does oversee our semen collection system. Usually he just pops in to make sure everything is really clean down there. He also often cleans the mares for us, making sure they are ready for mating. He has a very good system of getting them primed that he does in a private stall, and no one is allowed to watch or else his secret technique will leak out. He has taught all of the 14 year old boys that work here how to do it just right. We are all grateful for his expertise.

I would love to have you as a working student, but you would have to leave Ted at home. I have heard he is a great big weenie, and we don't need weenies in my barn full of stallions. Peeps are not very manly, but you could bring some of those mallowcremes!

PS: Sorry about your keyboard! :lol: :lol: :lol:

fiona, big, fat, juicy carrots are the best training tool when working with stallions and broodmares. At least, that's what David tells me.

Maybe we should start a new thread, "Freestyle Classics You Have Envisioned?"
