    Completely depends on the venue. Sometimes unloading all the gear and lugging it across the facility is more hassle than it's worth. I do lots of haul out lessons, etc, so it's not an issue for me...

    I think the issue is that the concept of a sheepskin lined girth is great, but maintaining it is a problem.

    Most people use a sheepskin sleeve so that you can throw it in the wash once a week.

    I can't believe we have a 5 page thread on ponytails!

    I have shoulder length, thin, straight hair. Pretty much never looks great with a helmet. I just wear a pony tail, put a hair net over it and...

    I really appreciate CDP posting the live feed. And I appreciate Axel's commentary. Wish people would not over analyze every word out of his mouth?

    Personally, I just want to give a big fat...

    I'm short, really short, with almost no middle :)

    I only wear low rise breeches, but they fit me like normal breeches fit a normal height person LOL.

    There is a big difference between a schooling show and a *CDS show - scores earned at a *CDS are qualifying scores for CDS championships. They have licensed judges, etc.

    A schooling show is pretty...

    A few thoughts on this thread.

    - Clinicians click with different people. Some riders work well with given approach, some will not.

    - I do not understand why someone would post that video,...

    js - there are no AQHA classes at USDF/USEF shows.

    If you are competing on an AQHA at a USDF/USEF dressage show, your scores count for USDF awards (including all breeds) but they do not count for...

    I appreciate Mr. Steiner coming here and providing such reasonable response.

    I think that generally speaking judges and clinicians have a tough job: riders have been working away and think they...

    I am trying to imagine Axel Steiner judging a schooling show - can't imagine but I suppose it is possible.

    I saw him give a clinic a few weeks ago and I thought he was really good. But I also...

    All good points Mystic Oaks. I'm working away on this now and our simple changes are hit or miss (at best) with all of the issues that you describe. Either I get a trot step or it's abrupt. ...

    But Mardi the shows are not run following AQHA rules - that is the whole point! These are rated dressage shows following USEF/USDF rules.

    There is no change made to the horse show because it...

    dotneko they dropped the judge requirement several years ago, but the show secretary requirement still exists. It's pretty much a deal breaker for most show mgrs.
  15. I think the part that is most frustrating is the...

    I think the part that is most frustrating is the approval of USDF/USEF shows by AQHA. It's very unreasonable to expect show mgrs to become AQHA members. Even if the riders pay the fees (which I...

    Also you have travers, rein back and turn on the haunches in 2 & 3. The SI sequences are much harder because you do SI then either a half or full circle, then travers. Very hard for a horse to...

    I did a demo ride of 1st 1 at a "through the levels" clinics hosted by my dressage chapter in Dec (I showed 1st level last summer). I think the test is actually a bit chopped up honestly - I like...

    There are many well known good dressage trainers in the Bay Area. Several S judges, lots of very, very successful national competitors. I would strongly suggest considering one of those options. ...

    click through to the live stream page - there are individual winning rides and then the whole class.

    OK I just have to interject something - it is a ridiculous comment to say that someone on an off breed might never win in a class of warmbloods.

    I have shown both, a lot. I don't know where this...

    I was so grateful for the live stream - I wasn't able to get to the show and it was so inspiring to watch everyone.

    Silverbridge - the whole thing is up on the live stream site, so you can watch the rides again on demand. I was so impressed with the riding. Amazing.

    Silverbridge you are going to see some great riding - have a wonderful time!

    Hah - my trainer is never early, she is late despite many conversations about it. I just utter the serenity prayer because she is very good at what she does.

    My guess is your trainer isn't liking...
