Fun way to remember dressage letters!

Hey learned fun saying to remember the Order of the dressage letters, thought I would share.

Starting at a going clockwise:

Short arena: All King Edwards Horses Can Make Big Fences

Standard arena: All King Vlandimir Edwars Super Horses Can Make Really Big Pink Fences

Kinda fun! Easy way to remember when drawing rings/ practicing tests.

I think I'd get more confused trying to remember the saying than the letters!!!

This is a bit off topic, but in Seattle, the downtown streets are named, rather than numbered. In order to remember them , there's a nuemonic. As writtin in Wikipedia and known by any longtime Seattle resident:

The names of the twelve streets in the heart of the central business district are paired by their first letters. From south to north, they are: Jefferson, James, Cherry, Columbia, Marion, Madison, Spring, Seneca, University, Union, Pike, Pine. One way to remember the order of the street pairs is with the mnemonic "Jesus Christ Made Seattle Under Protest",[1] (JCMSUP).

I learned; All Kind Elephants Have Cuddly Mothers, Bad Fathers.

Then the high school letters were; Very Special Riders Prevail.
