Have any of you heard of interdressage? It is a dressage competition that is done over the internet every month from the UK.

Just want to know if any of you have done it and what you think of it.

My partner has been doing it for just over a year now and it is really good as we don't have any chance for any competitions where we live, you submit your entries over the internet and after they are judged you get back a sheet with your test results and tips on improving your riding. You even get a rosette (and if there are sufficient entries, prize money) if you get placed.

Never knew there was such a thing! It sounds pretty interesting though, I'll have to look more into it.

In the early days of the Indian Territory, there were no such things as birth certificates. You being there was certificate enough. -Will rogers

I thought I'd post this...I emailed the website to see about the qualifications of the judges...

All our dressage tests are judged by a list 6 BD judge (Glynis Mills). The manners and performance classes (showing classes) are judged by the Interdressage team which comprises of Glynis, our dressage judge, myself (professional instructor and trainer and producer of riding horses, dressage horses and showjumpers and also, on occasions Christine Hayley- successful show rider- competed at all major shows in hack, riding horse, hunter and cob classes as well as producer of childresn ponies)
If you look at the templates for our 'showing classes' we are running them according to Interdressage rules- not county show rules- where we award marks per required movement and put more emphasis on how the horse and rider are working together, manners and performance rather than more traditional values associated with your 'normal' shows.
Hope this helps
