Well it's been a combination of things for me...
Lots of sweaty breeches, paying a few different coaches a small fortune and Robert Dover yelling at me once. I didn't want to see what would happen if he had to yell at me twice.

And thanks everyone! It was so cool to ride in a CDI!

Congrats on your first win at this level!

Very nice. And you don't even keep him in training year around. You haul to a trainer for lessons don't you?

He is in training year round, with me.
I haul to my coach for lessons as often as I can, mostly to teach me how to ride and train better, not to teach the horse. If I am sitting well he can do anything I ask of him or teach him.

Thanks maura and FP it is really a lot of fun haha!

I can believe how complex and difficult the PSG test is. Yikes!

lovely test.

Equilove, i find the warmblood big trot easier to sit than the ponyish action of the smaller breeds. I can sit warmbllod trots (well most of them) I could not sit on my connemaras trot or on the friesian we had on the last yard!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

You are extremely talented...while I am NOT in even pre-pre-training to ride dressage, my trainer is a very experienced dressage rider, (& I ride with her in the hope that my hunt/jump/endurance work which I wish to someday get back to, will be positively influenced by learning the communication techniques forged between human and horse in Dressage...I feel the knowledge base is terribly important!!) who trained under a highly known dressage trainer in Chicago (I'll research her name as I cannot remember names for all the money in the world!) from age 15 through 35! She has an extremely complete base of dressage knowledge (her mother was a well-respected rider in the field as well, & from what Holly has told me, demanded a constant STRIVING for perfection, stating,"you either ride well our you do not ride"...she was a very talented, tough cookie...she recently passed, sadly.

Anyhow, Holly LOVES watching greatly ridden tests, and I'm definitely going to share yours with her when I have my lesson Tues evening!

I think you both look beautiful in the test and it is NO SURPRISE you won. :0)
