I used to memorize dressage tests in places like high school algebra class by trotting and cantering two fingers around an 8x11 sheet of paper in the appropriate pattern.

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

Very Funny "Dressage Test"

The Amazing New Dressage Test
For Horses Unsuitable to Become Anything
By Joanna MacDonald et al

The Test

1. A. Enter at ordinary serpentine.

X. Sprawl. Salute.

2. C. Stop dead. Stare in horror at judge and shy to left.
Continue at ordinary working gallop.

3. E. Stagger left 20 or 15 or 22 meters in diameter circle or pear shape
Or five pointed star. Avoid excessive crossing of legs.

4. K. Begin to halt.
Z. Keep trying.
F. You can do it.
B. Pulley rein. Give up. Continue at out of hand gallop.

5. H. Regain right stirrup. Continue at ordinary trot, bouncing.

6. MKT Change rein. Free Walk loose reins. Remove horse from judge's
luncheon table. Ask judge for leg up. Jump back into ring.

7. Z. Turn down center Line.
Halt. Grin. Scratch. Burst into tears. Leave area at free walk on long
Reins, loose language.
This could quite literally have been a test that I rode (I use the term lightly) with Bobbie earlier this year! Especially the bolded. But I was a good girl and saved the language until I got back to the stall, I just left the ring with a wry smile and a bruised ego ha.

Loved the pics too

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

My best part is the start

1. A. Enter at ordinary serpentine.

X. Sprawl. Salute.

I have those down pat

Please tell me you really didn't visit the judges lunch table?
