Great post, Kayty. EventingisLoveee, please take this as an opportunity for improvement, and don't, as Kayty said, get defensive about it. Heck, I scored a 3 on a halt last year. Yup, a 3, and it was a generous 3. But you know what? I schooled and schooled and rode much better and got an 8 on it next time out. If correct training of your horse means you have to skip a show or two, so be it. Riding sympathetically and correctly is much, much more important than ribbons.

haha i know, pretty ridiculous !! i was doing training level HT on a fox hunting horse. she was a GREAT jumper, but dressage.... she was screaming most of the test. she also tried to jump out of the arena & then did tempi changes during one of the canter circles...i was sort of surprised we were allowed on xc [which we were double clear on as well as stadium] it was horrible !

haha omg lastyear me and my horse literally cantered out of the arena, did a turn on the hindquarters, and cantered back in and continued our test, we were disqualified, but it was pretty great. haha

I rode a dressage test once where my halt was actually a series of half rears, bounces and creeiping and took us almost to the outside track. The horse was fine once going, but had huge issues with halting and standing still.

I don't WANT to remember what my score was n that test :S

Haha thanks for all the advice everyone, I appreciate it! I understand what things went wrong now, and I was aware of the head wagging too. My trainer is an awesome one, and we are working on using my aids correctly and getting my horse more forward and on his hind end. I am not so much of a beginner that I don't understand that part! And I wasn't complaining about the score, I just wanted to know what everyone had to say about it, so I could better understand. The comments on the actual test basically only said "more forward," or "more energy." So clearly, those comments didn't help me much. I'll continue to work on his forward motion, but after this last show season with him, I think I may actually be buying my own horse and I'll have to start from the beginning again!

That would be up to her coach to do.

I have judge a few event dressage classes and from what I saw there really wasn't anything spectacular about the test. Transitions were rough in some places. Horse was crooked in others. The horse didn't look relaxed and for a big horse the striding was too much ponyish.

This was a "safe" ridden test and lacked the animation that would have upgraded it to a higher score.
