All training sessions, including pre-competition warm-up, may only be performed in the official training arena while under the supervision of stewards. Use of a training arena outside the official training period, and/or in an unsupervised arena, may at the discretion of the Ground Jury lead to the rider’s disqualification.

Aww, I always like to warm-up away from the crowd, way to rain on my party FEI! Haha

Iam just thinking about it and I think all these new changes and rules to the horses welfare are going to improve the dressage sport and make everything better, or, make dressage go compeletly downhill. Just my two cents

Now I'm slightly confused- what specific rules are coming into play? Will these affect only dressage-specific shows, or does this apply to eventing as well? Can you clarify for me? =] Thanks!

Hmmm im guessing at dressage shows... but maybe the dressae part of eventing to, or maybe all shows.

Nope. These rules are only implemented at FEI sanctioned shows (read: CDIs).
Any show sanctioned by the EC or USEF is not affected.

Wow. I usually ride the night before the show... But I guess I can't now... What if your horse was being an idiot and lets just say that he won't leg yeild, and you are doing a first level test, and you end up working on it for 20min.

The rider is not permitted to use rough, or abrupt aids or apply constant unyielding pressure on the horse’s mouth through a fixed arm and hand position

Okay that confuses me. How are they going to tell if you are applying constant pressure to the horse? I mean aren't our hands and arms suppose to be mostly still anyway? Where are they going to draw the fine line?

All training sessions, including pre-competition warm-up, may only be performed in the official training arena while under the supervision of stewards. Use of a training arena outside the official training period, and/or in an unsupervised arena, may at the discretion of the Ground Jury lead to the rider’s disqualification.


Well that just throws me all kinds of off. What about those of us who know we have barn sour/buddy sour horses and need to get away from everybody to have a proper and stress free warm-up (since if the stewards think we or the horse are stressed now they can ask us to stop riding)?

This means you, and also you, QHDragon.

This only affects people riding in CDIs. Which is PSG+. So like, Spyder.
