    What I find interesting is that on the one hand there is a push to bring in new people to dressage with the offering of Opportunity Classes and inclusion of Intro Level at recognized shows. But on...

    Thanks, lorilu. I found the link in the related thread, and have been looking at some of the other proposed changes as well.

    Hmm...

    If they said "bucking straps" were unallowed, I could understand that (not agree with it and think it was dumb, but understand it), but I don't remember ever seeing anyone showing dressage...

    I was a bit confused by the options. I voted for something hard mounted to the wall but I was envisioning something bolted in to a support structure of the barn, to which the cross tie was attached...

    Hmmm.

    I have a pair of boots that also are stamped "Swing" on the inside, and they are indeed leather. I bought them a good number of years ago from Dressage Extensions. They have zippers going...

    My long haired kitty is 15. He used to be really good at keeping himself nicely groomed - to the extent that it was a bit embarrassing at the vet office when they would say 'I must be brushing him...

    I have had many years of experience scribing (love doing it!) and I would add also that you should follow the judge's lead in how "chatty" you get. Some judges aren't much interested in conversation...

    That's like a 10 meter circle and way too small for any kind of lunging, or really any serious training. It's basically just a turn out space.

    Even just for loosening up you'd want to have a...

    Could we have hit upon the secret behind the German's success in the dressage ring? Do they turn their old, retired GP horses out with the babies to create new GP horses?

    I watched the video. That was some seriously funky canter work, particularly the counter changes/half pass and the mistakes in the ones. I also did not like his walk work, where in the extended walk...

    If you and your horse love your Thinline, why would you change? Seriously (I'm curious, not snarky :) ). There's lots of other stuff to spend money on, and new doesn't necessarily mean better.

    Reasonably priced breeches that can be used for daily schooling (yeah, no, I'm not riding in my high dollar whites at home).

    Meh. I just took it as a somewhat ironic and clever reference to all those silly slo mo nearly naked riders on the beach ads we see for perfumes and such, usually around the holidays.

    See? THIS is what happens when Off Topic is closed! Dredging up of old threads and angst-ridden purple prose.
