Board Meetings

Greetings, As I write this and look out my window, Old Man Winter has Arthur decided to return. My windows are a sheet of ice, the wind is blowing, and the snow is swirling around the yard. The perfect opportunity to sit in front of the fireplace and work on various NODA projects, schooling show business, and to get things organized, as before we know it spring will be here. Personally, I’m not a big fan of winter. If it was 75° and Niki Sackman & Raina snowing, that I could handle, but 20° or lower I can do without. To those of you that show and spend winter in Florida, lucky you and enjoy! A fun social event that NODA has partnered with CADS is Passage into Painting on February 29th at Brecksville Stables. This will be a great opportunity to mingle with others who love horses and dressage, paint a colorful horse head with NODA’s Jennifer Cooper and enjoy lunch. The painting is limited to 30 participants (all ages) but all are welcome to come socialize and have some fun. Further details are on page 8 of this newsletter. NODA and CADS are exploring other combined events to host. On the schooling shows front, the committee is working on some new programs. One that I am excited to announce is a medals program for our schooling show competitors. Another program we are working on is benefits for our professionals who give countless hours caring for our beloved horses, teaching us, taking us to shows, providing friendship, and yes, at times, being our therapists. The words “thank you” do not express how much I appreciate my trainer and how much she means to me, and I’m sure so many of you feel the same way. We are in the beginning stages of designing our professional program and have most of the details ironed out for the medals program. More information will be forthcoming. NODA’s education committee is working on several educational events. Part 2 of the USDF L Program is being planned as well as some ideas for future clinics. I know many of you are looking forward to the Adult Dressage Camp and More at the end of July, which is open to any of our adult members (amateurs and professionals). All have had a great time in the past. In May, NODA is hosting a two-day Western Dressage Clinic and in June, we will once again offer a Dressage Ride-a-Test Clinic the day before the June schooling show. This is also a well-attended and enjoyed annual weekend event. I would like to thank and welcome Molly Reeves as our new Correspondence Secretary. In addition to handling certain correspondence for the board, she will be assisting with branding, designing letterhead and some other projects for the board. If you are interested in volunteering, have any ideas or suggestions, please reach out to any of our board members. Our members and volunteers are what makes NODA great! Stay warm, think spring and Happy Valentine’s Day, Niki Sackman President

From the Archives with Historian Fran Cverna Our wonderful website is in the process of being updated in 2020! Here’s a little backstory on our award winning website. NODA has had three webmasters starting with Ashley Habsburg; 2000-2003. Tiffany Shaffer took over briefly in 2004-2005. For 14 years (2006-2019) Linda Cooley was our Webmaster and took the NODA website to several national USDF awards. This year Lesley Matt is our new Webmaster. NODA first developed a website 20 Years Ago. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter did not exist. Cell phones were just starting to get smart!

From the March 2000 NODA News As many of you know, NODA now has an official web site. In this era of technical communications, it only seemed logical that NODA jump on board the cyber-wagon and add a web site to supplement our newsletter (put out by the generous efforts of Bonnie Gray). It seemed logical, but the question was how? Surely, more goes into designing, building, and maintaining a web site than simply the desire to do it! As any editor can tell you, committing yourself to a publication (whether on line or on paper) is a big undertaking, and demands considerable time, effort, and resources. Last fall, Ashley Habsburg volunteered to develop our new web site, and to serve as our inaugural webmaster. The Board approved the plans, and the project move forward. First order of business: Find an internet service provider (ISP) that offered web site hosting. And what web address to use These addresses need to be registered with Internic, and many names, acronyms, and phrases are already registered and being used. After the first few choices were rejected (already taken), the address of www.NODArider.org was accepted, and duly registered. Next, NODA needed to obtain web development software with which to create the web site. Ashley, who in real life is a computer programmer, was already familiar with Microsoft FrontPage, so that platform was chosen. Ashley volunteered to use her own computer to design and maintain the web <site>, but a scanner was in order, so that photos of our riding achievements could be scanned and posted on the web. After researching the options, Ashley recommended a scanner, which was approved by the board and purchased. So, what next? Design the web <site>, totally from scratch, and find things to put on it. Following some basic “rules” if web site design and development, Ashley created the framework for our site. Then she created links to additional pages, as well as to other pertinent web sites, such a AHSA and USDF. The we <site> will evolve as people send in information, and new features are developed. Scores from our shows will be posted on the web site as well as in the newsletter. Another goal is to be able to post ride times on the web site, thereby easing the toll (no pun intended) on the telephone time-giver. The newsletter and the web site work cooperatively to provide information to NODA members. Take a look, if you haven’t already, at www.nodarider.org; visit often to keep up with al the changes. Questions or comments? Send them to Ashley at webmaster@nodarider.org. A final note: the newsletter and the web site are provided to us through the time, effort, and commitment of volunteers. Both the newsletter and the web site benefit from and rely on the input of members. Been to an interesting clinic recently? Have some new veterinary information to pass on? How about a hose-related news-flash from your barn that you’d like to share? NODA members want to hear about it! Write something up and send it in to Bonnie (our newsletter editor) and/or Ashley! Your contributions would be most welcome, and can add to the scope and interest of our NODA publications! NODA News 2020, Page 12

USDF L Education Program Session C—Overview of the Collective Marks Event Location: Topline Stables at Walden

Instructor: Joan Darnell, “S” Judge and L Faculty by Mosie Welch

Session C of the USDF L Education Program- Part 1, brought the dressage test into focus as Joan Darnell discussed collective marks. Collective marks are on the back page of the dressage test and include gaits, impulsion, submission, rider’s position and seat, and rider’s correct and effective use of aids. Included is a box for further remarks written by the judge. Session C is designed to help L program participants correctly evaluate gaits, differentiate between impulsion and suspension, evaluate rider biomechanics, and learn to write a short but meaningful summary in the further remarks. As a silent auditor, Session C was extremely helpful in understanding collective marks can help the rider. “The priority of the judge is to score each collective mark with a number, then provide a meaningful further remark.” Only if there’s time does “the judge comment on individual collectives.” The “collective marks are a message to the rider and should reflect the body of the test. The gait score can be higher, but the other collective marks must match (the scores in) the test.” Yet again, participants were advised to “READ the USEF rulebook on gaits.” Overview: Darnell reminded participants of a judge’s responsibilities: correctly placing the class, advocating for correct development of the horse and rider, assessing the basics in every movement, enhancing the quality of riding and training through comments and scoring, while upholding the standards of dressage by advocating for the horse. To aid in achieving these goals, Darnell urges participants to ask themselves, “what is the most helpful thing you can say so people come back and become more successful in the next test.” People are spending time and money coming to the show, so “address basics first, find the positive in the pair as well as the negative, and formulate a constructive remark.” Comments should be related to the Pyramid of Training. Each collective is specific.

indicates clear issues in gait purity. Going for a “10” in gaits? Your horse must be regular, exhibit freedom and range of motion in the shoulders and back, active hindquarters, uphill gaits, scope, amplitude, reach, and elasticity. The horses head, a variable tempo, or a fleeting irregularity do not affect the gait score. If a horse’s gaits improve in the free or medium walk, trot, or canter; that is an indication of rider interference and can add a .5 to the gait score. If the gaits improve as the test progresses it can also increase the gait score. A horse’s gait score can go down with ongoing disobedience and tension such as jigginess. Impulsion is engagement or the desire to move forward. The back is a huge indicator of impulsion as indicated by The 2019 Glossary of Judging Terms – Swinging Back – the springy motion that occurs when the thrust off the hind legs is transmitted through a stretched top line by trunk muscles that contract and “release” rhythmically rather than remaining either rigid or slack.” This collective only relates to the trot and canter work. At Second Level this includes carrying power and engagement in collection. The walk does not exhibit these qualities so if the walk needs more power then the walk “needs energy.” The opposite of impulsion is earthbound, flat gaits, hurried or running, tight back, and short steps. Satisfactory is a 6. If you are getting a 5, your horse is earthbound and tight in the back and you need more” go.” The horse is blocked from moving forward. A “4” horse is sluggish and tight. A horse that gets a “7” meets the demands of the test to lengthen and to move forward. Scores of “8” and above are always about movements that express freedom, scope, reach, elasticity, and amplitude.

Submission is a horse’s willing cooperation and harmony with the rider, demonstrating an attentive and confident attitude. Willingness to perform the required exercise as well as cooperate with correct basics. Judges should look for a horse that is straight, able to accept and respond to a Gaits: Quality of gaits determines how much higher than rider’s aids, a horse that focuses on the rider and not the surroundings, and a horse that is light on the forehand 5 the horse should get. During the test a judge must and moves with ease through the test. If a horse does evaluate each gait and assign a number, then divide by spook, “is there an obvious reason for it and how do they three and that is the gait score. When considering gaits come back from it.” Submission issues are head tilt, look for regularity and rhythm. Is the horse even and drifting on simple changes, head bobbing in canter, behind sound? A ”6” performance is always regular in trot and canter, but there may be some irregularity in the walk. A the vertical, lack of bend, loss of balance, avoiding “7” is regular in all three gaits but has less freedom, scope, contact, incorrect alignment on straight and curved lines, lack of forward energy, and slow to fulfill riders’ requests. and reach than gaits scored “8” and above. A “5” is marginal ; the walk and canter are not clear, while a “4” NODA News 2020, Page 13

Rider Position and Seat: The judge looks for the rider’s Continued on page 14

posture and alignment, stability in the saddle, weight placement, rider elasticity and ability to follow the mechanics of the gaits. Judges see riders rock side to side in the saddle, shift weight on circles, stiff in arms and body, elbows out, leaning back, bouncing, unlevel hands, hunching shoulders, or chair seat. Judges also see yanking or pulling which must affect the score and be included in comments. It is appropriate to advocate for the horse and say, “I did not enjoy seeing you yank on your horses head.” A “7” is a nice picture with some loss of position. A “6” score is a busy looking rider with lack of core stability. A “5” rider interferes with the horse, can’t sit the trot, and has minimal connection. Intentionally yanking or impeding the horse is a “4”. If it is “extensive impeding, the score is a “3”; ring the rider out and give them a yellow card.” Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the Aids includes clarity, subtlety, and independence of the rider’s aids and the accuracy of the test. Judges are looking for correct geometry, use of voice, timing of aids, horse’s timely response to aids, rider blocking energy, unclear aids, using the reins for balance. It does overlap with a rider’s position and seat as an unstable core, riding front to back, and a lack of security in the saddle affect the application of the aids. If you are getting a “7” then you are directing an obedient horse that is in front of your generally independent aids and you are generally riding an accurate test. A “6” is a rider that exhibits obvious lack of independence in the use of the aids, but horse responds with some rider induced faults such as head wagging or poor transitions. A marginal “5” is based on exaggerated aid that result in poor influence of the horse or a lack of the use of correct aids, and a poor rapport with the horse. A “4” indicates the rider is using conflicting aids and miscuing the horse. The Take Away: Collective marks are a valuable tool for riders to evaluate overall progress. Darnell encourages L program participants to develop a consistent and constructive methodology of assigning scores to collective marks and writing further remarks that concisely let a rider know what is needed for overall improvement. A movement score is one component of the test, a collective mark is the overall view of the test ride and is the way for judges to help a rider by answering the question, “what can I do to improve in my performance in the next test.” While the “fix” may not be so easy, reviewing tests over time can help riders pinpoint trends in comments and inform training decisions. Session C of the L program was extremely informative. I am thankful for the opportunity to audit, report, and write about all three sessions of Part 1 of the USDF L Education Program sponsored by NODA in 2019. It’s time for a review of the collective marks from my 2019 dressage tests. NODA News 2020, Page 14

TDF's Dreitzler Fund to Provide Grants for Events with International Clinicians The Dressage Foundation (TDF) has announced that a change to a Grant Fund will result in funding being available for events with international clinicians. In 2013, Ralph and Freddie Dreitzler and family established the “Heldenberg Training Center Fund in Memory of E.L. Dreitzler” to give grant recipients the opportunity to attend educational events at the Spanish Riding School’s Heldenberg Center. A decrease in the training opportunities at the Heldenberg Center led the Dreitzlers to change the focus of the Fund, which is now the “Dreitzler International Clinician Fund.” The family’s goal is to help clinic organizers offer exceptional educational opportunities with top international clinicians in the U.S. Ralph shared, “We are happy to change the focus of this Fund to be of assistance in getting high caliber clinicians to come to the USA.” Equestrian organizations, dressage clubs, and owners of private facilities who are hosting educational events with clinicians from countries outside of the United States are eligible to apply. Details about the Grant Fund are available by clicking here. Contact Jenny Johnson, TDF’s Executive Director, at (402) 434-8585 or jenny@dressagefoundation.org with questions or for more information. The Dressage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization, whose mission is to cultivate and provide financial support for the advancement of dressage in the United States.
