Katie Price does dressage!

When i found out Kate Price does dressage i just HAD to to check it out. To be honest it really annoys me. She rode at HOYS at THIS level? It seems as though shes competing at a high level just because she brought a lovely educated horse because she can afford it. Apparently she likes dressage because "the horses look good"
Sure, its good publicity for the sport but urgh i'll just let the video speak for itself.
She literally pulls the horses head down and her balance is horrible, her hands move and her upper body is unstable. I have these problems too but im sure if i went out and brought a ridiculously expensive highly educated horse i wouldnt be allowed to ride in shows such as HOY. All because of her fame..
Ive seen other videos and pictures too that really show how hard handed she is.
I'd have no problem with her doing dressage but shes just skipping ahead!
Anyway, sorry for the rant....

I don't see any issues with her competing in dressage? I can't imagine her racking in the ribbons at upper level though.

Lol fame and fortune can get you whatever you want. Why wouldn't the upper level shows want someone who will draw publicity to it? It means more money for them.

The first shot of her posting to the trot, she was on the wrong diagonal.

She was on the wrong diagonal for 2/3 of the time :P
Her riding is pretty bad, I'll agree... but the horse looks fat and healthy, and probably gets the best care money can buy, even though it certainly isn't a spectacular animal.

Yeah I think a lot of high level dressage riders were pissed about her riding at HOYS, she was better than that video at HOYS i think that must have been when she just started. She isn't as good as most and I understand the point about having the money to do it. I think she has the potential to do well, but it annoys me that she doesnt groom her horses she just goes to ride them. Its awesome publicity though

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

I have no idea who Katie Price is, but ****. I'm pretty sure I could ride dressage better than that, and I've never done it a day in my life.

This is a gorgeous horse :P

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

Everyone is entittled to ride a horse. She did not do that well with the horse inverted most of the time.

Just a note....there is no wrong diagonal in dressage.

I think its because she rode at Horse of the Year Show, not just because she is riding
