    After the results of Laura Graves you just have to think, "What if CR had been allowed to compete??"

    That's where having to qualify at certain shows and then using the median score works.

    Yep, merry has stated that correctly. HI on the diagonal. :) Makes it simple for the horse to understand and easier for the rider to perform it!

    3s,

    This is not at all what other saddlers have said and continue to do when designing saddles for women. Because a woman's pelvis is slightly wider, they make the twist wider and also add a...

    But thousands don't get the scores. My point was to the scores picking the riders and CR had the scores and should NOT have been pressured to step down, nor should she have been replaced. It should...

    A wider horse DOES alter the feel of the saddle and makes it feel less narrow. I believe that is what people were attempting to point out. It's the reality of a wider horse and how all saddles fit...

    Actually, 3s, the narrow twist is something that was designed for men, not women. The wider twists only became more popular when women starting taking over the sport of dressage. So, for women who...

    If the horse is a MW, even a narrow twist will feel wider because of the horse's size. It will never feel like it does on a narrow horse. With that said, I adore a narrow twist and have a wide...

    I'm with Baroque on her last statement. It is often overlooked or excused and it should not be. Then again, flipping feet and over reaching in the front without the hindleg tracking up to match is...

    Being asked to drop? That's just poor sportsmanship on the side of our team's management.

    Instead of making this a big business and having heads of programs who decide who goes and who doesn't...

    Totally agree. All this high tech, tighter than tight fabric is the bane of a good dressage seat for lower level riders. They need to learn to shape around the saddle, not be pushed out with...

    So, I was reading the online article and noticed something was missing. They reference the short list of, but don't name them all. They only name the team and alternates.

    The reason stated for pads out here are 100% correct. Pads were later used simply to keep the saddle clean.

    I have never thought they were flattering, so I'm fine with them going away. Not that the new helmets look any better. Blech, they're ugly. $200-600 can't buy good taste. ;)

    Um, wow. The people I know in MN are NOT flaunting the suggested quarantine and are not gathering. Don't know who you're talking to or why you think they are not being good horsemen.
