I wonder if we could write to the Olympic committee's instead about the abuse that is rampant in dressage... LOL if they took it serious! THAT would get the FEI's attention. To not have dressage in the Olympics would crush them.

haha, If somebody did that and it worked they would have to do it after the olympics in 2012! The barn owner where I board my horse is trying to get to the olyimpics with Lymrix :P
Haha SO NO BIG RAMPAGES OR PROTESTS TO GET DRESSAGE OUT OF THE OLYMPICS UNTIL 2013!!! :P

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

no because...
1. At the beggining his legs are flapping about everywhere.
2. Not quite a square halt, good enought, but not a perfect score.
3. Passage is a bit uneven at the start.
4. Extended trot good, but didnt have that floaty look.
5. Leg yield v. Good, beg good although a little exaggerated.
6. Extention, looking from the from the front, looks like the horse is throwing his legs out sideways a little, horse needs to stretch out more, looking at it in real time, it never looks like the leg is fully extended.
7. Canter work was good although transition at first wasnt perfect.
8. Piaffe was amazing! Back legs stayed in the same place!
9. Riders toes are pointing outwards...
10. Flying changes were good and transitions are generally good on the horse's part.

This is me being very picky, it was a very good test, better than I could do but 92.3% is a very high score.

[quote] Canter is lovely, but there were quite a few instances where he was 4 beating and the 2's weren't straight- it may have been the camera angle though. [quote]- yes I agree, the camera angle makes some movements look ungainly I spose and I also agree with the coment on the canter rythm.

Was it really a record? Because I have seen better tests (not as hard but better quality) with lower scores. I didnt get that 'amazed' feeling when watching, for the most part, maybe that something to do with poor youtube quality.

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Do you train with Crystal or Janet?

I think I know you, lol.

Everyone should read this. I lol'd.
Special Report: At Home with “Normal” Moorlands Totilas |

Picture in it:

Caption: Edward Gal and Totilas and Hans Peter Minderhoud

That neck doesn't look Rolkured AT ALL. Not.
And Hans riding a horse in draw reins. The horse isn't even on them his neck is so short!! I am amazed these horse's don't end up as rearers (Like Isabell's horse!).

*shakes head*

And just so you know, the olympic committee is already considering chopping dressage. The reason there is so little action on this whole rolkur thing is because the FEI wants there to be an appearance to the outside world that the sport is fine, they want to keep their top riders in place. Writing letters to the FEI is a wonderful thing to do!! The more that they see that the grass roots public wants a change, the more they may change their mind. It is going to be a looooooooong road!!
I also recommend to you folks to start judging. This generation contains the next FEI "O" judges!! In the FEI you can only become a judge until a certain age, and you are forced to retire at a certain age. The old schoolers are retiring and our new generation is moving in.

Lol at the picture. What a sad state dressage is in!

I knew they were already considering chopping it, but wasn't that because of the way it's judged and the politics, etc. etc. etc.?

It's more the lack of money they're making from it, remember the world is run by money!
Hockey, Figure skating, etc.. are all governed by the same rules of politics and "who's who" in the judging and picking of teams but the difference is that they make money!

As with many dressage horses, Totilas is not turned out by himself as he “flips out” and could injure himself.

Why are "many dressage horses" like this? Sorry for the slightly unrelated question, but it kind of stuck out to me.

First picture: I thought only walking horses could perform a big lick.

Lol my dressage horse gets turned out :P
He just got caught in a fence though soooooo... haha.
I like all horses to be with a buddy and not "over the fence" with anyone and in a large enough area that they can run without having to turn sharply. And the buddy should be very compatible.
That is how I turn mine out.

My coach turns hers out where he can only get up to a walk, and alone. She doesn't like him to be to active outside of workouts (Ie playing, running) because he has to work so hard. She likes him to walk a lot though to stay fit. At shows, symposiums, etc she likes him out of the stall on a handwalk for at least 2 hours, which is fun because he strikes and bucks lol.

If you treat a horse like that, in such an undignified way, I don't care who you are, you are nothing. I wouldn't even consider him a horse lover....you can't love horses and do that to them. No, he absolutely DID NOT deserve that score.
