So went to a dressage competition today, I don't get out much with a 3 month baby cause it's always a big hassle.
So I parked up (the pram) about 10 meters from the arena and we were promptly ask to move back another 10 due to "safety" by the first rider. Judge agrees that we should move back. Next rider horse looked sideways at pram and we were then asked to move back more. 3rd rider comes out asks us to move back further again. 4th Rider comes up she is a good 35 meters from us her horse freaks out threatens to rear and we are asks to "go some place else"
Is this for real! 35 meters away and they still can't handle their horses. Isn't dressage about submission and partnership with the horse (or some such) and we get told to move on cause their horses can't handle a pram....
Ok rant over... I think, still Pretty annoyed!
