Thoughts on this test?

Lovely mare cleans up at CDI Bremen

I am interested in opinions on this test. I personally think it looks lovely and the horse looks relaxed, happy, and well prepared for it's job. But hey, I don't know much about dressage.

Hence i'm curious whether dressage people think it is a good test?

I personally liked it. IM(amateur at best)O, the horse looks relaxed, happy, and has a good deal of impulsion.

I think it was an absolutely lovely ride and horse. She's not as flashy up front as you see some of the horses today, but I actually like that. She's strong and consistent, and she looks to be quite relaxed and happy :)

No wonder.

What's the expression.. "Legs for days"?? Very nice horse.

The mare is obedient and has enough talent but needs more collection, imo.

She only got a 71.375%. Ashley Holzer, Steffen Peters, etc.. are all getting scores above that. There are plenty of mistakes in the test and the piaffe/passage tour was not very strong.
Watching the video of Edward Gal on Totilas at the World Cup in 09, I get goosebumps. Watching that test I get a strong urge to fast forward. Not big enough mistakes to be entertaining, but not polished enough to be enthralling.
Give her a year.

Of course Anebel I referred to "sporthorse" breeding that in many eyes just isn't very important.....right?

Oh no, it was just fluke that the mare is nice. Not careful selection of bloodlines at all.
Hell I mean any horse bred with any other hose can just pop out a foal like this! All you need is luck. Just cover the mare in 4 leaf clovers and lucky pennies when you breed it and boom! You'll get a nice foal!

Considering this is St Paddy's day you could be right Kevin!

But seriously careful breeding of Warmblood and Sporthorses is what produces animals like this. I realize that this forum is more geared to western breeding and it is a shame that those that want to know how horses like this come about need to go elsewhere or try to find the odd posts buried among the breeding of paints and quarter horses.

It is no different then any discipline. Breeding plays a big role in the end products. As a breeder I look very hard at pedigrees and what crosses with what. Just like any breeder should. It is not a western thing or an English thing it is a good breeding thing.

If you do not post your questions or thoughts on the breeding of what ever your choice is then there will be no threads on it. Just like when a person has a specific question about breeding reiners they put it in the western area over the breeding area that way it gets the attention of the people who breed and show reiners.

Also there has been discussion about adding other areas and sub forums. However until someone PMs a Mod or Administrator and makes a good argument for it then all we have to go on is OUR thoughts on it and how we post, ask and see similar questions. Posting on threads like this does nothing to help.

-I'm so busy... I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse.
-An Armed Man is a Citizen an unarmed man is a subject.
