    I tried my hand at scribing at a schooling show. I was a nervous wreck when the first horse came in. I was so worried I'd miss a score. The judge told me that if I got lost, or missed a score or...

    It would be challenging due to our lack of data on trainers, but the idea is not impossible. There are three elements which make up the components of a successful competitor: the horse, the rider,...

    I would love the ability to associate student's and trainers in order to view student levels and scores.

    I don't think you could do this through show entry forms as they are now. However, it...

    HA. Mine too!! I'll be sitting the most amazing trot I've ever felt, or doing something neat, and I'm thinking "Oh, I'm so glad I'm getting this on video! I can't wait to see what this looks like". I...

    My opinion, if you want to roller skate and jump fences while being drug around by a horse, then you have fun. But don't call that dressage. It's not. Call it the Driven Unicycle Horse club or...

    I don't have much money to show, and so far can only afford a couple of schooling shows a year. I only entered one schooling show this past year.

    The real reason I don't show more is 1) I'm lazy...

    I get kind of annoyed when dressage is used ingerchangeably with the word training. If dressage is just training, then everyone does dressage 100% of the time. Even bad training is dressage since...

    When I was a young adult I rode Open because the Amateur classes were so small and the competition wasn't that stiff (wasn't a big dressage community where I live). Now, the AA's are as hard to beat...

    I ride dressage obsessively. And for every barn I've been at, I wear whatever I want. I don't own cowboy boots, but ride in jeans and riding shoes.. or sometimes breeches and half chaps. You aren't...

    OP said, "Has/Does anybody else have serious doubts about their ability (lack thereof) to the point of seriously considering giving up? Did you get over it or is your horse retired? If you overcame...

    It"s the trainers pony and you have the option to ride a youngster bred for dressage?? Go for it. :)

    What might help in your decision is to talk to your trainer about what would happen to the pony...

    Here's my critique..
    {video was hard to view, so some of this might be off because of that}

    Very capable rider, appeared to be sitting evenly on horse. You're posting straight up and down (no...

    I've been doing 3/day at local schooling shows, with option to scratch third if horse is tired. I ride below Third.

    On my horse it takes me 10 minutes to warm up for the first test and 5 minutes...

    This is driving me crazy.. what does BNT stand for? I know it refers to trainer, but what are the B and N?

    I'm on here asking for opinions. Why I'm asking is because all of my friends are.non-horsey and they think its absurd to have to notify trainer of my actions. I wanted feedback from people immersed...

    This is what I don't understand. Why do I NEED to inform anyone of what I am doing with my horse, my money, my time? I'm a very smart person (as are you). I can understand and evaluate what does or...

    The problem is I can't afford top trainer regularly, and she'll be gone winters. My trainer is good and she'll be here all winter. I've checked out the other trainers in my area and feel that mine is...
