    A farting horse should gt pretty high points, as long as the horse and the rider fart in unison at X

    Personally, I would replace those broken keepers with coloured 'black' tape - red is preferred as it looks tacky and clashes so nicely with animal print accessories. But keep an eye out, I hear they are making some fluorescent colours of pvc tape now...that would clash with everything!!!

    Ah, but everybody knows that true whitetrash tape is duct tape (or is that only for rednecks?)I am thinking about a lovely duct tape dressage bridle with braided baling twine reins. Wouldn't that silver look great with my horse's head? I am also considering the breadwrapper crochet saddlepad. Maybe instead of bread wrappers, I will use Piggly Wiggly or WalMart bags.

    Ok, I have a new question as of this morning. What about spooking at the BBQ rig that has been temporarily set up in the riding ring? Is this an approved piece of equipment?

    Only if said BBQ is placed at and represents "B"...much like the cooler at "C" and the porn magazine at "X"

    One advantage to the belching over the farting is that you are allowed to have an assistant call out your test as long as they do it while belching. However, farts during transitions and halts are considered advanced techniques and should score well.

    They don't call it White Trash Dressage for no reason. And around here DQ still stands for dirty quitter.....

    I have a very serious question now, because I don't want to be in violation of the rules...what about projectile pooping, as you turn at C? Is this only for FEI levels?

    And the same question goes for the horse, who is scared sh!tless by all the glittery duct tape and big hair...not to mention press on nails...

    Well, Irish EI, that's my question...because I know for the horse it is acceptable at all levels, since it is a fairly easy maneuver to learn, and so basic.

    I am concerned more about the rider. I have been religiously studying "Poop with your mind's eye" and "Centered pooping" and hope to audit at least a few clinics, but now I understand this is considered suitable only for those in a shadbelly (so why do they cut the jacket away in the front then????).

    Ok, I'm fairly new to WTD, so I have some questions with regard to the scoring of spooking. 1) In a freestyle test, if your horse spooks at something (say, a BBQ parked at B), and then the offending object is removed, and the horse still spooks violently at that location, is the second spook scored more generously than the first spook? (I understand that I have to provide a shirtless man with a beer belly to remove the BBQ halfway through the test.)

    2) Also in a freestyle test, are extra points awarded in the collective remarks section if your horse demonstrates that he does NOT spook at rusty household appliances parked outside (as this indicates familiarity)? Or is there a penalty for a missed opportunity to spook?

    Just wondering.

    Spooking is not point-worthy, it is mandatory..

    Shadbelly is a very dirty word around here....

    Shameless *bump*- I need to find out if this is going to become a national past-time or not! If so, how long until it can be seen as the true sport it is in OH? (All we have are these shows where the horse listens to every command on cue, spooking not encouraged, well metered gaits... boring, and definately NOT for us- no galloping. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/sigh.gif)
    Is talking/ yelling/ screaming at your horse to slow their ____ down encouraged? How much, and at what levels?

    AJ, look in your nearest litter box or bird cage for the most recent edition of WTD Today and you will find out how to start your own chapter of WTD! We need people like you who are willing to spread the word and get people to participate in this wonderful sport. Perhaps one day we might go international!
