    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.

    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...

    I'm actually in that very difficult first to second level transition myself with my horse! And I am also very much a DIY rider - I hate having trainers on my horse, I want to be the one riding! But...

    This is all complicated at first but once you get the hang of it, it becomes more logical.

    The short version is that if you want to earn year end awards, you and your horse should both be...

    I would not recommend the "give it a try and see how it goes" approach. If it is in fact illegal you'll throw away a whole bunch of money. The other issue is that you might get away with it...

    DR 121 is the rule about equipment. You will want to look this up yourself but I have copied the relevant section:

    A rein is a continuous, uninterrupted strap or line from the bridle bit to the...

    OP - that's the reason - they are having separate classes for AA and Open. So it wasn't riding twice in one class. It was riding the same test in two classes.

    That is legal. It is an odd thing...

    As noted by many others - schooling shows are not required to follow the same rules as a rated show.

    At a rated show you would not be able to ride the same test twice unless the judge issues a...

    Well I was just a demo rider in a New Test clinic with a very famous judge. Her comments to me were very much that everything was on track and gave me a few specific things to work on while most of...

    Well I am going to completely disagree with the above post! I guess this is what happens when you ask for opinions - you get them!

    I would rather work with a very, very good teacher even if I...

    Have never ridden with her but saw her as a demo rider in the USDF Symposium a couple of years ago. Amazing rider.

    I always cut those Velcro straps off but it depends on the saddle you use. They are meant to go under the top flap around the billets, but I find that they almost never fit right so I just cut them...

    A few thoughts:

    If you want to qualify for end of year awards and regionals, you need to ride the highest test of the level a couple of times.

    There is no reason technically that you have to...

    The facility is for sale though I imagine there is a small market for a facility of this scale.

    Just like selling horses, sometimes they sell quickly, sometimes they take quite some time.
