    I was amazed they came last year or year before! So many well trained/experienced (???????) dressage people, here in the USA, have given them nothing but a lot of grief about their training...

    From my experience, there is a difference. Deep is when the nose is towards the knees. Hyperflexion/rollkur is when the nose is towards the chest. Two differing purposes...nose towards the...

    A horse down in the back is what I mean by upside down.

    I think the method of training in hyperflexion is a system which is muscled slowly to the horse over a long period of time. When you...

    Arnika, It just does not look like abuse to me. Sorry. it just doesn't. I see more abuse/pain to the horse when it is ridden upside down. It was for a moment in the schooling session...the tongue...

    What is it about a people/group that makes them run pell mell into petitions/polls/brick walls when a small bit of video looks not exactly pristine? It looks to me like the tongue was caught on...

    hampsterpoop and larkspur, you are both on to something here! The thighs are the primary aid for the HH's though not squeezing thighs (which tend to push your seat up out of the saddle,) rather...

    Yikes, guess I have to eat some crow here! My student called last night to say that the show secretary had contacted him to say that the scorer had not added the rider collectives on his test which...

    Ideayoda, I think you know how I would answer that, and the technique I use for getting the horse to move form behind to the bit. Don't want to sore up an already hashed over subject so will not...

    I don't think I need to lobby the FEI. I don't know why you keep harping on a directive, that might still be in place, but has, so obviously, been antiquated by the new style horse. The FEI...

    I've know idea where they get this curling problem for the reason for stretching movement?? It should be to show that the horse is reaching over his back and seeking the bit with his hind legs as...

    Training with the open throatlatch inhibits the horse from using his back correctly. It makes horses stiff and locked in the very area that creates all movement through the body. A foals natural...

    Stretching with the nose poked out is not stretching in my book and lends itself to making the horse appear strung out. I would hope the most important thing they would want to see, in this...

    Piaffedreams and Capriole, I guess it is a hard thing to explain. At this point in my career and being a professional for a good amount of years, I would not waste my money or my time entering a...

    Piaffedreams and Capriole, I would be so appreciative if you would explain to me this huge difference and thanks in advance!

    I couldn't agree with you more, KwpnWB!! Yaaaaay for your post!!! The strength of the haunches should lift the shoulder/poll in a natural way otherwise you leave no room to elasticize the back. If...

    OH MY Capriole, I wouldn't last a half a day in one of those programs before they would kick me out due to my outspoken ways.

    FriesianX, thanks for your very nice posts and your earnest thoughts. I see dressage here, in the U.S., as a the never ending circle going nowhere. Until knowledgeable people are in place, judging...

    If I could have things my way, I would not let anyone go through the program until they had trained, successfully, a horse or two from the basics to GP. And NOT allowing them to get the scores...
