    IME judges aren't usually round up. You get the 7 when its "fairly good" and anything less gets a lower mark. In the past "almost fairly good" got a 6, and now it can earn a 6.5.

    We have an electric EZGO Workhorse (has the utility dumpbed on the back). I love it for zipping quietly around the farm carrying equipment or carting me back and forth, it's great for moving hay...

    That's great! Be warned though, Aiken is pretty seductive and you may find yourself putting down roots. :winkgrin:

    Straight dressage has used them for a while—I think they introduced them a couple years ago. It seems from my own tests and from scribing, that they come into play much more often to increase a...
  5. 1/2 points in dressage: how's that working for you?

    I'm really appreciating the half points. I think I'm seeing 6.5s much of the time when before it was more than a 6 but not quite a 7 and the judge's only option was to give me a 6. I think the...

    She has a natural permeable footing from the sandy soil, so she already has drainage and erosion solved. What is needed in some parts of the country are not needed in others.

    I went from a 3H GN slant Four Star (18' or 19' on the floor) to an Equispirit 2+1 (24' on the floor) and I was totally fixated and super anxious about ordering that long of a trailer and fretted...

    When we lived in the land of mud, we had to do extensive footing improvements with landscape fabric, gravel, and stone dust in order for the horses to stay out of mud in high traffic areas like a dry...

    I've happily pulled an Equispirit 2+1 with a Dodge diesel 3/4 ton for years. Before this trailer, I've had a sundowner and a four star. The Four Star is much better made than Sundowner. But I'm...

    Having a separate competition for team and individuals at the Olympics is not new. That was done at the Sydney Olympics. Separate jogs, slightly different xc courses, and I believe different...

    I've competed at all three venues, though at training rather than novice. I would definitely say The Fork would be the better final prep. The courses are stiffer. The jumps more likely to be similar....

    Also, FYI, a different judge started in your ring in the morning and was replaced by the judge you rode for when the first judge moved over to the stadium ring.

    A couple truisms I've learned about dressage scoring:

    "A 6 covers a multitude of sins."
    "A 7 means it can be better, a 6 means is should be better, a 5 means is MUST be better."

    And, well,...
