You have sections
Bronze 1- E level (basic w/t/c test and 1m-1m10 course) after 6 months
Bronze 2- A Level (medium w/t/c with medium gaits and same jump course, more difficult) and after 12 months you can do
Silver... and just either do dressage or jumping.

I can do E level tomorrow, you don't have to do anything for that, but to move up I do.

I am planning to go away for a week end of the year and do it in Warendorf.. costs around 500 for the first one, and think 700 for the second, unsure of the silver but with him that will be a couple of years off yet as that is the level his brother is currently at.
I think 1m is 3-4ft?? Like I'm 5ft6, or 1m68

its actualy about 3ft3. Not even the british use the imperial system all that much anylonger
Duffy its not that big when you are on a big horse i promise you! Its when you are trying to do those heights on a 13.2hh pony that it looks huge.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Crazy!!! I know this is really irresponsible, but I jumped 2'6" at fair a long time ago...but my horse and I had no practice other then jumping a pole set on a barrel at home...that was crazy, but so much fun. Not that that's really high or anything...anyways, moral of the story, I should have taken a few jumping lessons cause my horse over jumped the jumps by like a foot! eekk...the things we do with our horses. lol
Sounds like you guys really put in a lot of work to be able to compete over there. I think that's awesome. Sure are dedicated!!

Maybe the system has some kind of positive effect on the standard. Duffy, do you think the quality of the riding you see in Germany is better than that in Britain?

Dedication is an understatement, sometimes its too rushed, but I like taking my time.

I've had more than a few incidents jumping, but I will go to Warendorf and you have accomodation, food, horses and coaching for a week. You also have to do a theory test, so I need to scratch up on my German more.

Last time I did any proper jumping I was thrown under a jump and a pole cracked my helmet. Or the time I dislocated and broke my shoulder LOL

I haven't seen much riding in the UK as I've lived out here most of my life with the British Army, but through that we get a lot of brit riders, and brits that bring their horses over.

i think British riders are more 'out there' and who gives a hoot if its raining, or if that log is in the way.. jump it.

I think Germans are more dedicated to perfecting every ounce of their riding, but in some respects lack a lot of 'other' education such as going for wild gallops, jumping that log and dancing in the rain if that makes sense ;)

But I find the standard of riding are far more competitive and very strict... 'Riding is a sport' and sometimes people confuse hobby and sport out here, where as I think the lines are more defined in the UK
