NEXT MEETING 6:15pm March 16, 2020 NODA News 2020, Page 2

The schooling show committee has been hard at work designing some new programs. This month, schooling show Arthur manager, Sally Burton, shares details for the Schooling Show Medals Program on page 16 and the Professional Incentive Program (PIP), which is also valid at NODA’s recognized shows on pages 14 & 15. NODA is also happy to announce participation in the new USDF Regional Schooling Show Awards Program which is open to GMO members Niki Sackman & Raina participating in non-USEF-licensed/non-USDF-recognized competitions. The competition application is available on the USDF website at www.usdf.org/awards/performance/regional-schooling.asp, and we will have a link in the near future on the NODA website. We hope many of you will participate in these new programs. The NODA Schooling Show Prize List will be published soon. This provides a good opportunity to plan your goals for 2020 and review dates, requirements, and available awards for both schooling shows and recognized shows. The prize list is a valuable resource for our competitors. NODA is busy planning our recognized shows, NODA’s Dressage 2020 and Dressage Encore 2020, June 27 and 28 with Judges Dolly Hannon “S” and Marilyn Payne “S”. We are working on several fundraising and sponsor packages. This year we will be offering raffle tickets for purchase with the top prize a $1,000 scholarship, and the second and third place prizes will be $350 and $150 gift cards to Big Dee’s Tack & Vet Supply! Not sure about you, but I would love to win one of those prizes. You can be guaranteed I’ll be purchasing multiple tickets. Details forthcoming. We look forward to our membership’s support on these exciting endeavors. NODA has also purchased a second competition ring. This will save NODA money in the long run, as currently we rent a second ring. We were very fortunate, thanks to the generosity of Betsy Rebar Sell , Kristin Stein, and our members who donated our first ring. Would you consider helping us pay for the second ring with a $5 or $10 donation? You can donate at www.nodarider.org by clicking on the donate link on the homepage and you can find more information on page 7 of this newsletter. Some of you may have visited NODA’s new website. The website is mobile friendly and will continue to grow, so be sure to check for updates over the next few months. You are still able to renew your membership online, look for upcoming events on the Events page, and other information. We are thrilled to watch the site expand.

Have you ever wondered how to design a musical freestyle or what is required? On Saturday, April 25, 2020, NODA will be supporting CADS’ Freestyle Clinic with Emily Gill at Brecksville Stables, which will be an interesting and informative. NODA and CADS are also offering a Western Dressage Clinic with Joann Williams. See page 10 & 11 for a revised registration form and information about Joann. The 2020 clinic and competition season is almost upon us and the NODA board has spent the winter working hard to bring you the best in dressage. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Notes From The 2019 USDF National Convention in Savannah, Georgia Dressage Attire — Traditional, Trendy or Too Far? by Arielle Brodkey Every year at the national convention, the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) invites internationally respected experts to present their thoughts and research on a variety of subjects. At the December 2019 meeting in Savannah, Georgia, speakers included world-renowned equine veterinarian Dr. Hilary S. Clayton; Olympic medalist and U.S. Dressage Development Coach Charlotte Bredahl, and World Cup rider/ S-judge and favorite competition commentator Kathy Connelly. This article is the first in a series covering subjects presented by these authorities and others at the convention. In the first installment, three USDF show officials; Gwen Ka'awaloa, Michelle King, and Donna Meyer offered their opinions on show-ring attire.

“Traditional, Trendy or Too Far?” by Gwen Ka'awaloa, Michelle King, and Donna Meyer Is it true that the horse and rider with the most bling win? Not according to these three officials, nor according to judges who sat in on this presentation and commented. Some of them hate bling, and they gave specific examples of their least favorite examples. Riders beware! Some of these can negatively impact your test score!

not telling us to abandon it all together, but they advise judicious choices. While most of their remarks related to recognized shows, the presenters also discussed optimal turn-out for schooling shows and clinics. They emphasized that correct turn-out does not equate with expensive outfits. Correct turn-out needs to be neat with nothing to divert attention from the rider's equitation and the horse's movements. Speaking generally, good grooming of both horse and rider provides fewer distractions from the main elements of the ride. And they cost nothing but time. Some specific remarks related to riders' long, floppy braids and hair streaming out from under the helmet. These can be distracting and even unsafe in some situations. Untucked shirts can also present problems for judges because they bulge out with every stride at the trot and canter. Tucking the shirt in under a belt allows the judge to get a good view of the rider's back in order to assess the rider's position in the collective marks. A rider's back -line and seat might deserve a “7” or “8,” but be marked as a “5” if they are hidden under a billowing, untucked top. Some riders might also do well to wear a vest both for extra support and a tighter, neater appearance.

Top of the list was the helmet with a very glittery front panel. On a sunny day, when this panel catches bright sunlight, it can actually blind the What to wear in the dressage ring? judge to the extent that he or she can Bling or No Bling? not determine if the halt at X is square Judges weigh in to help you decide. or if the transitions are good, bad, or indifferent. Therefore, a score that might have been a “7” or even an “8,” might slip to a “5.” Glittery gloves create their own problems. Officials recommend that riders avoid wearing them unless their hands are absolutely quiet and steady. Bouncing sparkles call attention to jittery hands! This negatively affects a rider's collective marks at the end of the test. Officials do realize that most of us like bling, and they are NODA News 2020, Page 12

Finally, the presenters emphasized the importance of riders' familiarity with the USDF rule book regarding correct attire at recognized shows, such as the exact shades of colors of coats allowed, sleeve and neckwear rules when coats are called, and other requirements.

Gwen Ka'awaloa is a USDF “R” judge, and “r” Western judge, and a USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medalist. Michelle King is a USDF Technical Delegate. Donna Meyer is a USDF “r” judge. Thank you to Arielle Brodkey for sharing her experience at the USDF Convention with us!
