    funny you should mention him, Schiffon. I was watching a horse being trained in pi/pa today. He is being asked for more activity in his piaffe than before and he's having a harder time transitioning...

    for MVP

    I thought of a perhaps better way to explain what sparked my interest:

    not a trick question....

    honestly trying to learn something. it looked strange to me but wanted to hear what others thought.

    sorry I haven't hung out enough here to understand what's PC!

    'manufactured' piaffe/passage?

    let me start by saying I don't inherently have anything against Anky.

    I noticed at the Dressage Masters that Painted Black's pi/pa seemed to be coming mostly from the legs and didn't look through...

    they're based on your 8 top CDI scores in the last year. if you've only got 5 scores (even if you got 5 scores over 70) you would be ranked BELOW...

    Friday will be a little better for those that compete in the CDI the weekend before: more of a rest in between....

    Hear, hear SLC2.

    I'm amazed at the things I hear about some trainers! Many of which I know aren't true. It only demeans us as a sport to give time to this kind of pettiness.
