WARNINGS: Do not use in horses intended for human consumption. HUMAN WARNINGS: Not for human use. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. Consult a physician in case of accidental human exposure. PRECAUTIONS: As a class, bisphosphonates may be associated with gastrointestinal and renal toxicity. Sensitivity to drug associated adverse reactions varies with the individual patient. Renal and gastrointestinal adverse reactions may be associated with plasma concentrations of the drug. Bisphosphonates are excreted by the kidney; therefore, conditions causing renal impairment may increase plasma bisphosphonate concentrations resulting in an increased risk for adverse reactions. Concurrent administration of other potentially nephrotoxic drugs should be approached with caution and renal function should be monitored. Use of bisphosphonates in patients with conditions or diseases affecting renal function is not recommended. Administration of bisphosphonates has been associated with abdominal pain (colic), discomfort, and agitation in horses. Clinical signs usually occur shortly after drug administration and may be associated with alterations in intestinal motility. In horses treated with OSPHOS these clinical signs usually began within 2 hours of treatment. Horses should be monitored for at least 2 hours following administration of OSPHOS. Bisphosphonates affect plasma concentrations of some minerals and electrolytes such as calcium, magnesium and potassium, immediately post-treatment, with effects lasting up to several hours. Caution should be used when administering bisphosphonates to horses with conditions affecting mineral or electrolyte homeostasis (e.g. hyperkalemic periodic paralysis, hypocalcemia, etc.). The safe use of OSPHOS has not been evaluated in horses less than 4 years of age. The effect of bisphosphonates on the skeleton of growing horses has not been studied; however, bisphosphonates inhibit osteoclast activity which impacts bone turnover and may affect bone growth. Bisphosphonates should not be used in pregnant or lactating mares, or mares intended for breeding. The safe use of OSPHOS has not been evaluated in breeding horses or pregnant or lactating mares. Bisphosphonates are incorporated into the bone matrix, from where they are gradually released over periods of months to years. The extent of bisphosphonate incorporation into adult bone, and hence, the amount available for release back into the systemic circulation, is directly related to the total dose and duration of bisphosphonate use. Bisphosphonates have been shown to cause fetal developmental abnormalities in laboratory animals. The uptake of bisphosphonates into fetal bone may be greater than into maternal bone creating a possible risk for skeletal or other abnormalities in the fetus. Many drugs, including bisphosphonates, may be excreted in milk and may be absorbed by nursing animals. Increased bone fragility has been observed in animals treated with bisphosphonates at high doses or for long periods of time. Bisphosphonates inhibit bone resorption and decrease bone turnover which may lead to an inability to repair micro damage within the bone. In humans, atypical femur fractures have been reported in patients on long term bisphosphonate therapy; however, a causal relationship has not been established. ADVERSE REACTIONS: The most common adverse reactions reported in the field study were clinical signs of discomfort or nervousness, colic and/or pawing. Other signs reported were lip licking, yawning, head shaking, injection site swelling, and hives/pruritus.

As with all drugs, side effects may occur. In field studies, the most common side effects reported were signs of discomfort or nervousness, colic, and/or pawing. OSPHOS should not be used in pregnant or lactating mares, or mares intended for breeding. Use of OSPHOS in patients with conditions affecting renal function or mineral or electrolyte homeostasis is not recommended.

In his farewell column, USDF’s outgoing president weighs in on two controversial issues from the 2018 convention: Safe Sport and the freestyle rule for those who love them? An even bigger discussion at the BOG assembly concerned the following motion: that “the USDF Executive Board be directed to submit an extraordinary rule change request to the USEF to rescind the extraordinary rule change to DR 129.9 under GR 152.3.a.” This is the USEF rule change that, beginning December 1, 2018, increased the prerequisite score to ride a freestyle from 60 percent to 63 percent at the highest test of the level (or achieved above the level). Basically, the criticism of the freestyle rule change fell into two categories: one, that the process was flawed in that by going through as an extraordinary rule change, members were not fully notified and therefore were not given the opportunity to provide feedback prior to the rule’s passage; and two, that the score-requirement increase should not have been approved in the first place. Of course, the USDF Executive Board did as the BOG directed, and a letter requesting the rule’s rescindment was sent to US Equestrian on December 11. But I continue to hold a slightly different opinion about the BOG’s decision, and I see this as another big-picture issue. While we can debate the merits of whether it needed to be classified by US Equestrian as an extraordinary rule change, I nonetheless support the increased prerequisite score. Here’s why.

LORRAINE MUSSELMAN

By George Williams, USDF Immediate Past President he 2018 Adequan®/USDF Annual Convention was my last one as president of USDF. It certainly wasn’t dull, to say the least. This was a result of change, some of which we can control and some we can’t. In the Board of Governors (BOG) assembly, there arose two “big picture” issues that I want to address—not from the perspective of how they will affect us as individuals, but rather from how they will impact dressage and our sport as a whole. Let me start with the obvious one: Safe Sport. Although some have complained that the new SafeSport training requirements are a nuisance, this issue and this mandate are here to stay. At the BOG assembly, USDF delegates approved bylaws changes that clarify the definitions of “individual or member in good standing” as well as of “membership sanctions”: “Any individual or USDF member suspended by the United States Equestrian Federation, or under sanction by the US Center for SafeSport, shall be suspended by USDF.” The issue of abuse of minors—which includes harassment, bullying, and sexual misconduct—has taken its toll on a number of organizations, such as USA Gymnastics, Penn State University, and even the Catholic church. In general, sports are regarded as wholesome activities that build character in a positive way. Unfortunately, abuse has scarred or destroyed some young athletes, including in equestrian sport. In my mind, like it or not, we’re all members of society, and society bears some responsibility. Sadly, recent history has proven that education and proactive measures are musts. Our equestrian sports have rules in place to protect the welfare of our horses. Should we not have protection

warts and all. He’s quirky and goofy and funny and sweet and anxious and drives me crazy when he acts like an overactive toddler. He’s also talented and tries hard and is never naughty, and he’s really fun to ride. He’s come a long way in five years, and dammit, he’s my horse. To my endless relief, the vets’ suspicion turned out to be unfounded, although NBC advised me to sit out most of the rest of the summer—“just stay home and train.” So that’s what we did. And as Junior and I doubled down on our schooling, I realized that I felt more committed to my horse, almost like someone who’s been dating for a long time and finally decides to take the leap and tie the knot. Oddly enough, Junior acts more committed, too. We had a bond before, but now he leaves his buddies when he sees me at the pasture gate (a big deal for my social butterfly), and my presence calms him when he’s anxious about something (a really big deal). I feel the trust level when I ride, as well: He “lets me in” more than before, and he’s allowing me to push him a little harder, I think because he trusts that I won’t ask him for more than he can handle, physically or mentally. I don’t know what the future holds for Junior and me, but we’re all in. We’ll figure it out together.

A show-season sidestep leads to a big leap forward s I look back on 2018, I realize that the year was a pivotal one in my relationship with Junior. By the time you read this, I will have had this horse for five years. Even though I unpacked way more quirks than were advertised in his brochure, I’ve loved him and have (mostly) enjoyed riding, training, and showing him. At the beginning of the 2018 spring show season, we had a health scare. The first night at an “away” show in Virginia, during a godawful unseasonable heat wave, Junior suffered what was diagnosed as a minor colic episode. Prompt veterinary treatment appeared to put him right, and we scratched for the remainder of the weekend and had an uneventful trip home. A couple of days later, however, he was again not quite right—and the ensuing puzzlement as to what was going on landed him at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center for a few days of diagnostics. In the pre-admittance consultations between my veterinarian and the NBC specialist, a few hypotheses got tossed around, and one in particular was pretty dire, as in likely career-ending. Until the diagnostics were completed, I had nothing to do but stew in the juice of my own worry. I have a regrettable propensity for what’s known as catastrophic thinking, and so of course down that rabbit hole I went. My mare, Diamond, had to be retired just a few years ago following a careerending injury. Was I really going to have to do it again? With two pasture puffs, what would happen to my riding career? Would I even be able to get yet another horse? Giving free rein to my overactive imagination, I glumly checked out a few horse-sale websites. Everything I saw was a “swipe left.” No, no, no. Then it dawned on me: I don’t want another horse. I want this horse,

has wider mass appeal than freestyle. Just as we cannot regard the Safe Sport issue from our personal perspectives alone, we cannot take the narrow view of the freestyle-score issue. The way I see it, it is bigger than just us. If we are going to use freestyles to promote our sport to a general audience, then there needs to be a basic level of competency. Otherwise, we run the risk of turning people off our sport and giving dressage a bad rap. When you look at competency in this context, I’m not sure whether the rider’s status as an adult amateur, an open competitor, or a junior/young rider really makes a difference. Regardless of one’s division, earning one score of 63 percent is not too demanding of a requirement. You don’t need a purpose-bred, fancy sport horse with extravagant gaits to meet the 63-percent minimum—which works out to be an average of less than 6.5 on each movement. Using the definitions on the scale of marks, the performance doesn’t even have to be “fairly good”; it just has to be slightly better than “satisfactory.” And if you go for an 8 on your entrance and final halt and salute, you could end up with points to spare. Finally, that score of 63 percent only needs to be attained once in order for a rider to compete in freestyle at that level. I would hope that most of us aspire to achieve more than an occasional “satisfactory.” On the issues of Safe Sport and freestyle, we owe it to our children, and we owe it to our horses, to be bigger than thinking only of ourselves. s

USDF C 45 Y ( . 38) I looked forward to reading USDF CONNECTION S l USA Rocks Jeanne McDon- Team the WEG Like a Hurricane ald’s article about the new dressage tests (“First Look: The 2019 USDF and US Equestrian Dressage Tests,” November). I am an adult-amateur rider, and I was curious to learn more about the “why” of the changes for the tests I will be riding this coming year. I enjoyed that aspect of the article. However, one sentence left a sour taste in my mouth: Jeanne’s statement that “Third Level is the beginning of true dressage training.” That struck me as a dismissal or downplaying of all the work and time it takes to learn the aspects of riding needed to ride the levels until Third. Yes, there is a lot more to dressage than what I’ve done so far in Training, First, and Second Levels. That’s part of what makes me look forward to continuing to ride and learn. I am glad that I haven’t felt looked down on by anyone in my day-to-day dressage learning. It seems to me that an attitude of “dressage doesn’t really NONPROFIT ORG. U.S. Postage

Jeanne McDonald responds: When I stated that Third Level is the beginning of pure dressage, I should have said that Third Level is the start of where dressage becomes specialized. Dressage is a French word meaning “training,” and it is used in many equestrian disciplines as the basis for their success at their specialty (e.g., jumper riders and horses learn basic dressage to be in better balance and more agile for the fences). Without correct dressage basics, the horses will not be as balanced nor usually as successful. Third Level is also the beginning of self-carriage and the requirement to show three distinct paces (collected, medium, and extended) in both trot and canter. And the level of expectation for the increased engagement and balance increases with every level, from Training through Grand Prix.  Even the top riders in the world are always going back to basics in their day-to-day training, and I don’t think they think of it as being looked down on.  What has always attracted me to dressage is the never-ending quest to improve in the basics. I have been competing at Training Level since 1982 with more than 10 horses, and I just started my homebred filly at Training Level this past November. My favorite class to judge (for over 30 years) is Training Level, as it is the beginning of a process that never ends; it just gets better in the harmony. I am sorry if I offended, and I hope this clarification is helpful. USDF Connection welcomes your feedback on magazine content and USDF matters.

McDonald called Bredahl “an excellent fit” with “a great eye” who is “not only experienced as an international rider and trainer, but also as a judge.” Christine Traurig will continue to serve as the US dressage younghorse coach, and George Williams will continue as the US dressage youth coach, according to US Equestrian.

In 2018, “Duval” won his first national Grand Prix, and he has been accepted into the USEF Developing Program. “I am incredibly honored to receive the Anne Ramsay Grant from The Dressage Foundation,” Lyle said. “This wonderful grant will make it possible for me to showcase Harmony’s Duval, an Americanbred Grand Prix horse, in Europe next summer. It is imperative that our horses get exposure in Europe if they want to be top contenders, but the costs of traveling and competing over there would be prohibitive without the support and generosity of people like Anne Ramsay, who have a desire to help American dressage grow and succeed on the world stage.”

She was a working student for international competitor (now the USDF’s immediate past president) George Williams for three summers while she worked to earn her degree in industrial engineering from the University of Iowa, graduating in 2004. An avid dressage volunteer, Johnson had served as president of the Eastern Iowa Dressage and Eventing Association, a member of the USDF Youth Executive Board, the Region 4 representative to the USDF Awards Council, and on the committee of the USDF/ USEF Young Rider Graduate Program. A popular dressage instructor/trainer and clinician, she coached students to many year-end awards and USDF rider medals.

Even as her declining health curtailed her dressage activity, Johnson qualified three horses for the 2018 Great American/USDF Region 2 Championships, but she was not well enough to attend the championships. With her Swedish Warmblood gelding, U Rock, she was ranked eleventh in the 2018 Adequan®/ USDF Fourth Level Musical Freestyle year-end standings, and she won the 2018 Fourth Level Musical Freestyle All-Breeds championship title from the Swedish Warmblood Association of America. U Rock won the Fourth Level freestyle at Johnson’s final show, in September, with family and friends on hand to cheer her on. Of her daughter, Putnam said: “She was kind and fair to her horses. She loved them all. She was humble about her accomplishments. She was generous with her knowledge and set a positive example for her students. She was always happy to lend a hand to a fellow competitor. She was brave in the face of cancer, and she had an amazing smile. She lived her life to the fullest with courage and graciousness.” George Williams said of Johnson: “Whether it was through her learning to ride as a young rider, bringing her first horse to Grand Prix, the professionalism she brought to her training and teaching, her lifelong love of dressage, her friendships, or through the courageous attitude with which she faced her disease, throughout her life she was an inspiration to all of us who knew her.” Besides her mother, Johnson is survived by her husband, James Borchardt; and by her father, Jack Johnson.

Study Finds Eye Problems Common in Older Horses

M

any dressage riders are wellversed in the health needs of their precious older horses, but even senior-savvy horse owners might be startled to learn that they’re overlookTHE BEAUTIFUL EQUINE EYE: Senior horses may have ocular-health issues ing a common problem area: the equine eye. A 2018 veterinary research study of nearly 1,000 Australian owners of horses aged 15 and up found that almost 88 percent of the horses had eye abnormalities—but only about 3 percent of the owners had reported that their animals had vision or eye problems, TheHorse.com reported in November. About one-third of the horses studied had cataracts in one or both eyes. Some had corneal lesions, while nearly 85 had lesions within the eye. Although lesions themselves don’t necessarily mean vision problems, some can cause pain or discomfort that may not be easy to diagnose. And a horse with diminished vision—and certainly a blind horse—requires special safety measures while handling and riding. The takeaway: An ocular check-up should be part of a senior horse’s wellness program; and any eye discharge, swelling, signs of discomfort, or other change in appearance should prompt a call to your veterinarian.

Rocher

R

ocher, the jet-black Westfalen mare whose brilliance and hallmark lop ears endeared her to a generation of dressage enthusiasts, was euthanized due to the infirmities of old age December 5 at owners Charles and Joann Smith’s Gypsy Woods Farm in Richwood, Ohio. She was 27.

DRESSAGE LEGEND: Rocher and rider George Williams after winning the USEF National Grand Prix Dressage Championship in 2005

Bred in Germany, Rocher (Rolls Royce – Fraenzi) was imported to the US in 2000. She soon ascended to the high-performance ranks with trainer/rider George Williams. In 2003, the pinnacle of the pair’s accomplishments, they placed fifth at the FEI World Cup Dressage Final in Gothenburg, Sweden; and Rocher won the USDF Grand Prix Dressage Horse of the Year title and was named The Chronicle of the Horse’s Dressage Horse of the Year. Rocher became the first horse to win the Grand Prix Freestyle at Dressage at Devon (Pennsylvania) three times. She was short-listed for the 2004 Olympic Games, but a tendon injury derailed that plan.

Rocher returned to competition in 2005, sweeping all three Grand Prix-level classes at the US Dressage Festival of Champions and competing as part of the US bronze-medal team at the Nations Cup in Aachen, Germany. Rocher was retired from competition in 2009. She produced one foal, the 2011 Dutch Warmblood filly Gardez La Foi (by Rousseau), via embryo transfer. In recognition of her achievements and her ambassadorship for the sport of dressage, Rocher was inducted into the Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame in 2016. “Although Rocher’s resume is impressive,” Joann Smith said, “her true legacy will always be how she made you feel when you watched her—a little lighter on your feet and in your heart, and with the feeling that you too could dance.” For Rocher’s retirement ceremony at Dressage at Devon, Williams wrote: “Every once in a while, if you’re truly lucky, a special horse will come along that takes you beyond your wildest expectations and changes your life. For me that horse was Rocher. She was one of my greatest teachers on the finer points of horsemanship. She opened doors, provided opportunities, and allowed me to live a dream that continues to this day with the great horses I still get to ride.” After the mare’s death, Williams wrote on Facebook: “Rocher won over the hearts of many with her talent and exuberant personality. She was truly a magnificent horse and an incredible dance partner with her indomitable spirit. It was an honor and a privilege to ride her. In conveying my condolences, I would like to also express my gratitude to Chuck and Joann for generously giving me the opportunity to ride and compete such a magnificent horse. She will remain in my heart forever.”

How I got started: I worked in show barns, and I wanted to turn my passion for horses into a career without actually having to be in the barn at 4:00 a.m. I tried a desk job, and I was like, Man, I miss the horses. How can I find a way to marry these two things? I went hunting, found a need, and filled it. Best thing about my job: I get to work with a lot of different brands and content. Worst thing about my job: Being stuck in front of a computer. My horses: I have Arabian sport horses. My new dressage prospect is five-year-old Teddie. I’d like to show at recognized dressage shows and also on the Arabian circuit. Tip: Please support the brands that are supporting your shows. —Katherine Walcott

TRAINING CLASSIC

horse around his or her inside leg and moves the haunches in. The horse’s shoulders are held out on the track by the rider’s inside leg. Rhythmic driving leg aids superimposed on the haunches-in aids maintain impulsion with the horse moving into the bit. The horse’s neck is bent by the inside rein to conform to the bend in its body (Figure 1). The horse must be evenly bent throughout its body in haunches-in. The angle must correspond to the degree of bending. If the haunches are moved in too far, the horse will be incapable of bending enough to perform the haunches-in properly. It will usually

adjust to this problem by straightening its spine and breaking at the base of its neck (Figure 2). When this occurs, both the front and hind legs will cross, with the horse’s shoulders angled outward toward the track. When correctly bent, the horse’s hind legs cross while the shoulders remain approximately parallel to the track—the forelegs do not cross (Figure 3). Less angle and better bending around the rider’s inside leg will generally correct the too-straight horse. Thrusting forward of the rider’s inside leg will also compromise bending. Contact on the horse’s side with the inside leg and the outside leg farther back in relation to the inside leg is necessary for correct bending. Failure of the legs to move the horse into the bit may result in a loss of engagement. The unengaged horse may step directly sideways with his hind legs, resulting in a spectacular but incorrect crossing of its legs. (A properly engaged horse will bring its hind legs forward and over.) Correction for this fault is to move the horse better into the bit through the use of half-halts and leg aids, especially the rider’s inside leg. Haunches-in may be practiced at all

FIGURE 2. Haunches-in with too much angle results in the horse’s breaking at the base of his neck, angling his shoulders outward, and crossing his front legs.

hen shoulder-in has been established, haunches-in (travers) may be introduced. The aids for haunches-in are: inside leg “at” (just behind) the girth, outside leg behind the girth, weight shifted slightly toward the rider’s inside hip and stirrup, and rider’s hips and shoulders parallel to those of the horse (which necessitates the rider’s turning his or her trunk slightly). The hands control the lateral movement

Ideally, if the horse is correctly bent around the rider’s inside leg, the hands can be carried shifted slightly toward the direction of movement, with the inside rein slightly off the horse’s neck and the outside rein filled out by the bend of the horse’s body.

three gaits. It is an exercise that horses usually enjoy performing, since it frees their inside hind leg from carrying weight. Thought must be used when practicing this exercise. Haunchesin may be introduced to the horse by holding the haunches positioned inward coming out of a corner or a circle. During the last part of the turn, the rider shifts his or her hands slightly to the outside while using a strong outside leg to move the haunches in. The inside leg holds the shoulder out on the track and maintains impulsion. When the horse has performed the haunches-in correctly for several meters, it should be straightened. An active inside leg moves the horse’s haunches back on the track. However, if haunches-in is performed out of the circle or turn frequently, the horse is quite likely to form the habit of throwing his quarters in on turns to relieve the inside leg from carrying weight. Therefore, once the horse understands “haunches-in,” the transition into it should be done after it has moved straight down the long

side a few strides. Before moving into a turn, the horse should also be straightened first so it doesn’t fall inward with its haunches into the turn. Haunches-in has the gymnastic effect of bending the horse’s spine. It is very useful in correcting horses who have the tendency to carry their haunches to one side (Figure 4). If a horse tends to carry its haunches to the left, right haunches-in will effect

a correction for this condition. Left haunches-in will correct horses that carry their haunches to the right. Haunches-in on a circle is an effective correction for horses that fall out on a circle with their haunches. When done on a circle at the walk, it is a preparatory exercise for turns on the haunches and, at the canter, for canter pirouettes. Haunches-in on a diagonal line is a half-pass (Figure 5). Haunch-

clinic es-in at the canter is performed the same way as at the trot, but must be schooled toward the canter lead. Haunches-out is just the opposite of haunches-in. The aids and bending are the reverse of haunches-in (Figure 6). A transition from haunches-in to shoulder-in is performed by leading the shoulders in from the track while maintaining the same bend. A horse is easily moved from haunches-out into counter-shoulder-in by leading the shoulders outward. Shoulder-in can be

Half-Pass Half-pass should be introduced as soon as the horse is fairly proficient at both shoulder-in and haunches-in. Half-pass has several variables that both the horse and rider have to cope with. These variables are (1) forward movement, (2) sideways movement, (3) bending, and (4) relationship between the haunches and shoulders. It’s very important that the quality of the trot is maintained. When introducing half-pass the emphasis must be on the bending rather than on the rate of sideways movement (Figure 7). If the bending isn’t there, the horse is performing a mere leg-yield.

is consistent with the degree of bending in the horse’s body. The shoulders and haunches of the horse should be approximately parallel, with the shoulders very slightly ahead. This U bend must be maintained throughout the half-pass. Before making the transition into half-pass, a half-halt should put the horse firmly on the rider’s aids, engage its haunches, and make it attentive. The half-halt must not be so strong that the forward energy is lost. Following the half-halt, the rider leads the shoulders gradually off the rail by moving both hands as necessary toward the inside. The outside leg pushes the haunches off the rail to correspond with the horse’s shoulders. Impulsion,

changed into haunches-out by changing the bend throughout the horse’s body. In shoulder-in and haunchesout, the horse’s legs are in the same place respective to the track, but the bending of one exercise is the opposite of the other. Counter-shoulder-in and haunches-in also have the same leg position respective to the rail but opposite bending. Transitions from one exercise to the other are useful in teaching the rider coordination of the aids but will lead to confusion if introduced too early. Such transitions don’t have much value for the horse, since they tend to make him think “crooked” instead of “straight.” Whenever bending exercises are practiced, they must be alternated with work on one track. I always remember what one instructor told me: “The most important part of haunches-in is going straight again.”

FIGURE 8. In preparation for half-pass, the horse is bent in a U with his shoulders very slightly ahead of his haunches.

FIGURE 7. Half-pass. The horse moves forward and sideways, bent evenly throughout his body toward the direction of the movement.

The aids for half-pass are a combination of the aids for shoulder-in and haunches-in used as needed to obtain a correct half-pass. In preparation for half-pass the horse is first bent in a slight U position (Figure 8). The rider’s inside leg is used at the girth and the outside leg behind the girth. The rein aids position the neck so that its bend

bending, and forward movement are controlled by the rider’s inside leg. The rider’s weight should be on the inside stirrup and seat bone. Both the rider’s shoulders and hips should remain parallel to the long side of the arena. Turning the shoulders toward the inside is a frequent rider fault. It leads to the horse’s making the same fault of turning its shoulders and losing the parallel position of its body to the rail. Generally, horses tend to lead with their haunches when beginning the half-pass and lead with


their shoulders as the movement progresses (Figure 9). The rider’s aids must account for this tendency. At the beginning of the half-pass, the rider uses both hands to the inside and both legs. As the horse tends to fall on its shoulder in order to get rid of the bend in its body, the rider should shift both hands more toward the outside to control the shoulders. The inside leg also serves to control the shoulder from popping inward as well as pushing the horse forward. The parallel position of the haunches is maintained by the rider’s outside leg. Shifting of the rider’s weight to the outside during the correction must be avoided.

FIGURE 9. A common problem in half-pass is the horse’s favorite “haunches leading/lagging” syndrome. The haunches lead at the beginning of the half-pass and then lag as the movement continues.

If the horse succeeds in popping its shoulder inward, it has changed the movement from half-pass to leg-yield. The effortless sideways motion of the leg-yield often thrills the naive rider. Our supposedly unintelligent horse has outwitted us again! To correct this common problem, the rider should perform a small circle, reestablish the bend, and again move the horse in to half-pass.

Very little angle should be asked for when starting half-pass work; emphases should be placed on even bending; an active, engaged gait; and moving into the bit. Only when the bend and quality of the gait are maintained consistently should more angle be requested. Even on my Grand Prix-level horses, I first practice more forward half-passes, almost in medium trot with marked suspension, stressing the quality of the trot before asking for more angle. Irregular steps, especially behind, are commonly seen in trot half-pass. These are generally caused by asking too much angle from an unengaged horse. Lack of engagement makes it difficult for the horse to cross his outside hind over his inside hind. The horse compensates by using its inside hind farther behind its body. This problem can be corrected by asking for less angle, improving engagement, and alternating half-pass with shoulder-in. The shoulder-in serves to engage the inside hind. Light taps with the whip on the lower thigh as the inside hind is moving forward may also be helpful. In a correct half-pass the horse’s legs move forward and across, keeping engagement and forward movement into the bit. Steps directly sideways have extreme crossing, which is spectacular but lacks in engagement, bending, forward movement into the bit and, frequently, regularity. For horses with a good-quality collected canter and walk, half-pass at these gaits is usually easier than at trot. Half-pass at canter is prepared for and aided in the same way as at trot and should always be performed toward the canter lead. In canter the horse springs lightly sideways during the suspension phase of the gait rather than crossing his legs. Performing half-pass the distance from the long side to the center line (10 meters), or from the center line to the long side, is enough to ask for the first few months. A 10-meter half-pass over a 40-60 meter length is plenty in the beginning. In Third Level, a 10-meter half-pass is called

for in a 36-meter length. Only as the horse develops the necessary suppleness should it be asked to perform a 10-meter half-pass in a length of 24 meters (Fourth Level Test 1) or, finally, the 20-meter half-pass in a length of 24 meters as at Grand Prix. Practicing a poor-quality half-pass at difficult angles only teaches a horse to do a poor-quality half-pass. Half-pass may be effectively alternated with haunches-in with horses that tend to lag with their launches. Alternating with shoulderin is good for horses that lead with their haunches, lose engagement, or become irregular. Alternating with moving forward or circling is effective

clinic for horses that lose their bend, lose impulsion, hurry sideways, or pop their shoulder in. The bent-U position should always be reestablished before the transition into half-pass. Half-pass at walk is preparation for schooling turns on the haunches. Canter half-pass helps prepare a horse for pirouettes.

Collected and Medium Gaits By this stage in a horse’s schooling, the working gaits should become more engaged, active, and springy or, in other words, collected. Collection is a result of an effective connection between the rider’s legs, the horse’s haunches, and the bit (Figure 10). This connection results from the horse’s moving, rhythmically and energetically, from the rider’s leg aids into a steady contact with the bit, free of resistance. In order to achieve this connection, the horse must be “on the bit,” moving into a contact with the rider’s hand. The horse must be corrected with driving half-halts if it backs off taking a contact, keeping the reins slacked. A locked jaw, on one rein or both, must also be corrected by combined checking and driving half-halts until the horse unlocks its jaw and takes the bit. Frequently, riders are seen jerking against the locked jaw and getting the horse even more off the bit instead of making it get on the bit. Tempo is tremendously important. Every horse has a tempo in which it moves at its optimum. This optimum will vary according to gait, mood, degree of warm-up, and footing. However, the rider must strive to ride the horse at the best tempo and correct the horse with half-halts whenever the optimum tempo is lost. As collection develops, the gaits become bouncier to observe as well as to sit. However, this developed elastic springiness is never jarring to the rider. Sitting to elastic, powerful, collected gaits takes supple hips and strong stomach muscles. A poorly-sitting rider will punish his or her horse every time it

begins to move with increased thrust and spring. Increased collection will develop the horse’s back, neck, croup, and hindquarter muscles, as well as the rider’s. From the collected gaits, medium gaits will develop (Figure 11). The horse will begin to spring into medium trot and canter from its haunches, maintaining a lighter, freer forehand and a slower, more regular tempo than in its earlier lengthenings. Whenever the tempo becomes hurried or the horse tips onto its forehand, a halfhalt should be given and a springy, balanced, collected gait reestablished before the medium gait is again performed. This work should usually be done at sitting trot so that the rider will remain over the horse’s center of gravity. A pushing seat and leg aid should signal the medium gaits. Constant driving aids will usually result in hurried, running strides. If the horse does not respond to the aids for medium gaits, flick it with your whip. If it responds with a bouncy medium gait, walk and reward it. If there is no response or if the horse hurries off, half-halt and repeat. There are several exercises that will assist in developing collected canter. Shortening and lengthening exercises and simple changes are two of these. On the large circle, practice half-halts at the canter, shortening the stride (at first only slightly) by driving the horse into a restraining hand. The horse must continue to move into the bit in a round, rhythmic, springy canter, while engaging its haunches more and shortening its stride slightly. When this is achieved, move the horse forward again. If rhythm, roundness, fluidity, or straightness is lost, too strong a half-halt has been demanded. Greater shortening should only be asked when the horse accepts a slight half-halt without coming off the bit, going crooked, or losing the canter rhythm. Practicing a crooked, hollowbacked, shortened canter will not help your horse at all. Make sure that you only ask as much as your horse can perform well.

38 February 2019 • USDF CONNECTION

After the canter half-halts and moving forward are easy and smooth on the large circle, alternate them with transitions into the walk from the half-halt. The resulting transitions will be balanced and smooth. If the horse resists in any way during the half-halt, delay the transition, push forward again, and perform a correct half-halt before asking for walk. Sit firmly with supple hips during the transitions without popping forward out of the saddle. Establish a regular walk, on the bit, with your reins shortened to canter length before departing back into canter. Your arms will be somewhat straighter with your reins short, but this rein length will help the horse assume the proper canter frame during the depart. If the horse anticipates the depart by coming off the bit, jogging, or going crooked, correct it with a half-halt and establish a proper walk before departing into canter. Your horse must learn that it is not to anticipate. When smooth, consistent walk-canter, canter-walk transitions are established on the circle, always through the collecting half-halt, practice these transitions as part of various figures and in various parts of the arena. s Next month: Flying changes.

nyone living in central Kentucky knows that weather conditions can vary wildly—so much so that residents often joke: “If you don’t like the weather, wait an hour.” And for the first five years of the US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan®, Mother Nature lived up to those expectations: Competitors experienced everything from sunny, 70-degree days to thunderstorms and sleet, sometimes all in the same week. But for the 2018 Finals, held November 8-11 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, the weather report could be summed up in just one word: cold. Make that two words: very cold. Early November in Kentucky typically isn’t balmy, but the forecast for Finals week called for temperatures to plunge 15 to 20 degrees below normal and stay there. The conditions created some trials for the organizing team. “It definitely was a challenge and it wasn’t fun, but everyone got through it,” competition manager Debra Reinhardt said with a laugh. “And we had very few scratches. I was amazed. I thought people would drop like flies, but no. Plus, I think our vendors were happy because they sold a lot of extra clothing!”

Rising (and Riding) to the Challenge The unusual and persistent cold led to frozen pipes in the outside barns and over some exterior areas of the climatecontrolled indoor Alltech Arena. “We saw the forecast and wanted to be proactive,” said Reinhardt, “so early in the week we contacted the Kentucky Horse Park in order to work together to handle it as well as possible. The first night wasn’t so bad, but then it never warmed up during the day. Combined with wind chill, at that point the pipes started to freeze. So we used faucets equipped with frost-free hydrants and also brought over water from other barns. But for a time, water had to be turned off completely to prevent pipes from bursting, so we had signs up and notified everyone as best we could. I thought we’d be inundated with complaints, but I was wrong; we didn’t have a single complaint. Everyone just stepped up and helped each other to make the best of the situation. That’s the spirit of the Finals in a nutshell.” On Sunday, the final day of competition, the bitter cold almost got the best of the Kentucky Horse Park’s renowned synthetic footing. Reinhardt noted that, although it wasn’t perfect, competitor safety was never compromised. “The staff here know the footing and how best to manage it,” she said. “They were out there in the middle of the night working on it. In the early mornings, it was frozen and a little hard but had a layer of fluff on the top, so I watched the rides and talked to the judges. They said they didn’t see

anyone slipping and that everyone was getting through it. It wasn’t ideal, but it wasn’t a safety issue.”

The Ripple Effect Why not just move up the Finals by a few weeks in hopes of having better weather? According to Reinhardt, changing a competition date isn’t that simple. “We can’t come in to the Kentucky Horse Park a week earlier because the National Horse Show is already booked [during that time]; plus quite a bit of our infrastructure depends on piggybacking on that show,” she explained. “But if you’re just looking at dates, that means the Finals would have to move more than two weeks earlier, so then you start dramatically impacting other shows, including the Great American/USDF Regional Championships, which would also have to adjust accordingly. Some of them are heritagetype events, which can’t change dates; plus we have to allow enough time between Regionals and the Finals for exhibitors to prepare to come here. “Sure, we’d all love to have perfect, dry, warm weather every year for the Finals,” Reinhardt continued. “But ultimately, all week we heard that, while people were cold, the horses were relatively unaffected and were still able to perform wonderfully. Just like every other Finals, what makes this event so special is that everyone is just so happy to be there, regardless USDF CONNECTION

of the conditions. I’m lucky to have such a phenomenal team, who all pulled together to make it happen despite the cold— and in reality, this is the first time it’s been like this.”

Long Days and Longer Nights The cold couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of 387 open and adult-amateur Finals competitors from across the country, who represented a record-setting 42 states. All made the trip to Kentucky to vie for national titles and $100,000 in prize money across 30 divisions, from Training Level to Grand Prix. Even though 2018 entry numbers reflected only a slight increase from 2017, the uptick necessitated the revival of a sixth competition ring. “We had significantly more rides,” Reinhardt explained. “Last year we barely broke 900 rides; this year we had 1,037. People aren’t coming here for just one class any more; they’re entering multiple championship divisions and/or cross-entering into the open show, getting more bang for their buck.” But more rides mean longer competition days. On Friday and Saturday, performances in the Alltech Arena went late into the evening, even well after 11:00 p.m. On Sunday, the championship schedule extended almost two hours lon-

ger than in previous years, with some awards ceremonies having to be held after 6:00 p.m. and delaying many competitors’ departures. Such a full schedule limits organizers’ scheduling options; as much as some might wish to delay start times on frigid mornings, for instance, November’s short days present the risk of running out of daylight. “Almost all of the championship classes were huge, so each one took up a large chunk of ring time every day,” Reinhardt said. “I agree it’s too long a day for everyone, but that’s just how it worked out this year.”

Music to Our Ears According to Reinhart, explosive growth in freestyle entries played a key role in the long days of the 2018 Finals. Since the 2014 show, two competition arenas—the indoor Alltech and the outdoor Murphy—have been dedicated to Finals freestyles. But this year, 298 of the championship rides— nearly 30 percent of the total Finals rides—were freestyles. The result was that “the non-freestyle rings would be done much earlier in the day, while the freestyle rings would go right up to sunset outside, and until after eleven p.m. in the Alltech,” Reinhardt said. “In the Murphy ring alone, we had almost eight hours of First Level freestyles on Sunday. At first thought, one might say, ‘Well, just add another ring.’

It Takes a Village

U

S Dressage Finals volunteer coordinator Kathy Grisolia has been to every Finals since their inception in 2013. No matter the weather, her loyal army of volunteers is as dedicated as she is. “Every single one of our volunteers wants to be here, so even though it’s awful outside, we all just put 19 layers of clothing on and go on with what needs to be done,” Grisolia said. “The volunteers who come here are so dedicated; there’s nowhere else like it. They come back year after year, even though they know that the DEDICATED: Finals volunteer coordinator Kathy weather can be sketchy. It was certainly rough this year with the Grisolia with her companion, Jake constant cold, but everyone still had a smile on their faces.” At the 2018 event, “I was fortunate to have even more volunteers than last year, so I had some extra people to move around,” Grisolia said. “This meant that for certain positions I had the luxury of switching people out to provide some breaks from the cold. It’s especially tough for the ring stewards and crossing guards, who stood out there in the cold for hours on end. We had volunteers starting at 6:00 a.m. and going until almost midnight. We tried to have cars parked in certain areas outside to give volunteers a brief respite from the wind and cold. Despite the weather, out of our almost 100 volunteers, I only had one who didn’t show up.” “It’s hard for me to not get emotional talking about our volunteer team,” Grisolia said. “I’ve made so many friends, and I would not be able to do this job without them. I love this job and this show. The cold this year did nothing to dissuade anyone—even our newbies, who all said they’ll be right back here again next year. They’re all just the best.”

T

he US Dressage Finals media team unveiled a new press-conference format for the 2018 event, which added a social-media live stream to the customary in-person interviews and daily press releases. A total of 15 SPOTLIGHT: Press officer Jennifer Keeler (right) interviews press conferences were streamed to the USDF Facebook Intermediate I AA champion Hannah Hewitt and reserve page using Facebook Live, with well over 23,000 views and champion Elma Garcia a reach of more than 52,000 as of November 19. Did you miss the interviews? They’re archived on the USDF Facebook page (United States Dressage Federation Official Page). You can also read complete recaps of each day of competition on the US Dressage Finals website (usdressagefinals.com) and watch on-demand archived competition video (with commentary from international dressage trainer and judge Kathy Connelly) on the USEF Network website at usefnetwork.com.

But logistically it’s more of a challenge than you’d think to add a third ring for freestyles. Not only is it expensive to hire another announcer and sound system, but the outdoor rings also aren’t far enough apart to prevent musical interference. So we’re looking to make some significant changes next year, perhaps starting those classes earlier in the week instead of just holding them on Saturday and Sunday. “The bottom line is that we knew we had our hands full this year and drove ourselves crazy with the scheduling to do the best we could,” Reinhardt concluded. “These are all growing pains, and it’s a good problem to have. Next year

we could see a different trend in entries and not have these same challenges. But for now we’ll analyze the situation: We’ll look at entry numbers for every division over the six years of the Finals and get an idea of how things are trending, and then make some adjustments for everyone’s benefit next year, making it better than ever.” s Jennifer M.

STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY JENNIFER O. BRYANT

ne of the most respected and beloved USDF presidents in modern history received standing ovations and other special recognition during the 2018 Adequan®/USDF Annual Convention. At the podium for his final USDF Board of Governors (BOG) assembly, in Salt Lake City, Utah, George Williams accepted applause and a commemorative photo from the BOG delegates during the November 28-December 1 convention, marking the end of his final term as USDF president. Williams, of Wellington, Florida, is the USDF’s seventh president. His nine-year run is second only to that of his immediate predecessor, Sam Barish, in length; Barish served for 10 years. Before Williams became president in 2010, he served 10 years as USDF’s vice president—making him the longest-

serving officer in USDF’s history. (Barish has Williams beat by one year in total number of years served on the USDF Executive Board, but seven of those years were spent as the USDF Region 1 director, which is not an officer position.) Williams, whose final “Inside USDF” column appears on page 4, brought a unique blend of elite-rider celebrity and “populist dressage” activism to the USDF presidency. An FEI-level competitor who had trained and exhibited the Tempel Lipizzan stallions before he joined the USDF Executive Board in 2000, Williams saw his dressage fortunes rise around that same time when he got the ride on the superstar mare Rocher. The pair soon became winning fixtures in the Grand Prix ring in the US and abroad. (Sadly, Rocher died in December, just days after the 2018 USDF convention wrapped. Read her obituary on page 16.)

The USDF president also represents the organization to the United States Equestrian Federation, and as such Williams serves on the US Equestrian Dressage Sport Committee (formerly Dressage Committee) and various other US Equestrian groups. He has been the US Equestrian national dressage youth coach since 2014, and in 2016 he was appointed to the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) Dressage Committee. All the while, he has continued to ride, teach, and train alongside wife Roberta and daughter Noel in their Williams Dressage business. “George has had a profound impact on the sport of dressage and on national recognition of the role of the USDF

through his steady and compassionate leadership,” said incoming USDF president Lisa Gorretta. “He is both a cheerleader for where we are now and a staunch advocate for change that is essential to ensure USDF’s growth and success. Above all, he has the welfare of our horses as a top priority in everything that we do. He is irreplaceable; therefore I have no intention of letting his influence disappear as he takes on some new professional challenges and I take the proverbial reins as president.” No stranger to USDF office herself, Gorretta, of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, served as USDF vice president from 2014 through 2018 and was the USDF Region 2 director from 1995 through 2000. In addition to her Executive Board involvement, she has served on numerous USDF committees, including as a past chair of the Regional Championships Committee. A longtime adult-amateur rider and horse owner, she is a USDF bronze and silver medalist, an FEI dressage steward, and a US Equestrian “R” dressage technical delegate. Gorretta’s professional background is in small business: She founded the Ohio-based equestrian retailer The Paddock Saddlery in 1986, and now does consulting for equine-industry-related businesses after selling her company in 2013. She was elected the USDF’s next president

during the 2018 BOG assembly after running unopposed. The honors for Williams culminated at the Salute Gala & Annual Awards Banquet, held the final evening of the convention. First, Gorretta and other past and present USDF Executive Board members presented the outgoing president with a leather briefcase. Then, in a surprise announcement, USDF Region 5 director Heather Petersen revealed that Williams’ friends and supporters had already raised seed money of over $31,000 to establish a new fund in his name at The Dressage Foundation (TDF), Lincoln, Nebraska. Williams will work with TDF to determine the focus of the George Williams Grant Fund and how grants will be awarded.

Other Election Results Besides the position of USDF president, five other Executive Board seats were up for election: treasurer and the directors of Regions 2, 4, 6, and 8 (“Meet the Candidates,” October 2018). Two incumbents ran unopposed and were reelected by acclamation: Region 4 director Anne Sushko and Region 8’s Debra Reinhardt. Lorraine Musselman ran unopposed to fill the seat of retiring treasurer Steven Schubert and was elected by acclamation, as was new Region 2 director Debby Savage, who replaces the retiring Kenneth Levy. The only election-day surprise came when Peter Rothschild was nominated from the floor of the BOG as a challenger to incumbent Region 6 director Carolynn Bunch, and subsequently defeated Bunch. Lisa Gorretta’s election to USDF president leaves the vice president’s seat temporarily open. Per USDF’s bylaws, Gorretta will appoint an eligible person to serve as vice president for the remainder of the open term.

Freestyle Rule Goes Back to the Drawing Board—Maybe Typically, there is one hot topic at the USDF convention— often a proposed change of sorts to a USDF program or dues structure, which plays out in lively discussions at the two days of USDF regional meetings and culminates in

58 February 2019 • USDF CONNECTION

more discussions and one or more votes at the BOG assembly. The Salt Lake City convention was no exception—but the topic was a definite departure from the usual. That’s because, for the first time in this reporter’s memory, the controversy concerned a US Equestrian dressage rule change that had already been enacted. The “freestyle rule,” as it’s become known (formally US Equestrian DR 129.9) was approved by US Equestrian last summer as an extraordinary rule change (meaning at a time of year other than at the annual US Equestrian convention in January). DR 129.9, which went into effect December 1, 2018, raised the prerequisite score to ride a freestyle from 60 percent to 63 percent at the highest test of the level. A USDF statement on the new rule outlined how the rule came into being, traced the history of the freestyle minimum-score requirement (it was instituted in 2005 and in 2009 was raised from 58 percent to 60 percent), and presented statistics showing the numbers of freestyle rides and their score breakdowns in 2018. The core rationale for the change, according to the statement, was that the USDF Freestyle Committee was concerned about “the technical proficiency that seemed to be missing in some freestyles” and believed that “the 60 percent prerequisite score no longer shows proficiency at the declared level.” With the support of the USDF Judges Committee, the Freestyle Committee submitted to the USDF Executive Board a proposal to raise the prerequisite score to 63 percent. The Executive Board approved the measure and forwarded it as a proposed rule change to the US Equestrian Dressage Sport Committee, which approved it. The problem, as some USDF members saw it, was that although the proposed rule change was posted on the USDF and US Equestrian websites prior to its passage, the “extraordinary” timing meant that many dressage competitors were unaware of it, and they felt the organizations did not do enough to publicize the proposal and solicit feedback before the rule received final approval. Most of those who spoke out against the change at the USDF convention said that they support measures designed to protect equine

welfare (in this case, through correct riding and training) in principle, but that the timing puts an undue burden on those competitors who earned what they thought were the necessary prerequisite scores in 2018 but who must now “requalify” to ride a freestyle if they hadn’t hit the 63-percent mark. (For one USDF member’s thoughts on the subject, see “The Tail End” on page 232.)

Opposition to the freestyle rule change ran high enough that a motion was presented at the 2018 BOG assembly to direct the USDF Executive Board to submit an extraordinaryrule-change request to US Equestrian to rescind the new rule “because the adopted extraordinary rule will disadvantage the membership” of the USDF. During the BOG assembly and at other meetings in Salt Lake City, arguments for and against

rescission were presented, many on the topic of whether it is unrealistic to expect an “average” horse and rider to be able to earn a score of 63 percent at a US Equestrian-licensed/ USDF-recognized dressage competition. “This rule may affect only 10 percent of the people,” Cayuga Dressage and Combined Training Club delegate JaneMarie Law said to the BOG, “but that 10 percent disproportionately affects poor, rural clubs like mine,” she said of her Ithaca, New York-based GMO.

Some delegates viewed the motion primarily as an opportunity to rebuke the manner in which the rule was enacted. “I think it’s important for us to send a message that this is inappropriate,” said Region 3 participating-member delegate and First Coast Classical Dressage Society representative Barbara Cadwell, of Florida. “I don’t object if it’s done right. I want to publicly smack their hand.” Some high-profile USDF members have gone on record in support of the raised score threshold, including George Williams (“Inside USDF,” page 4). Another, FEI 5* dressage judge and USDF Judges Committee chair Gary Rockwell, said at the USEF/USDF Open Forum at the USDF convention: “As a trainer, I wouldn’t allow a student to do a freestyle if they were getting [only] 60 percent, [and] I’d be embarrassed to fight the efforts to improve my students. Even with a very ordinary horse that might get a 6 on gaits, if the basics are good and the horse is on the bit, [the collective mark for] submission can get a 7. We had a mule at the [2018 US Dressage] Finals; that’s half of a horse!” he said,

concluding that “we should be showing freestyles a level below what we are schooling.” The motion passed—although, as former USDF secretary and former USEF Dressage Committee member Janine Malone pointed out during the BOG assembly, its rescindment is not guaranteed, as it is only a request and the actual decision must be made by US Equestrian. Even if US Equestrian is amenable to a rollback, “I don’t know how long it would take and what the process would be to rescind this at this time,” she said. “It wouldn’t be immediate.” For the moment at least, then, DR 129.9 is in effect— so if you wish to ride a freestyle this year, the prerequisite 63-percent score at the highest test of the level is required, as of this writing.

From SafeSport to Schooling Shows As amateur sports organizations, the USDF and US Equestrian are required to comply with Safe Sport regulations. That’s because US Equestrian is the US Olympic Committee’s (USOC) national governing body for equestrian sport, and the USDF is the US Equestrian dressage affiliate organization. Following legislation signed by President Trump in February 2017, amateur sports organizations and their members must report sex-abuse allegations involving minors to local or federal law enforcement or to a designated child-welfare agency. The USOC established an independent organization, the US Center for SafeSport (safesport. org), which offers online SafeSport training, is the reporting agency for claims of sexual misconduct, and maintains a database of disciplinary records, among others. As part of the SafeSport compliance requirements, USOC affiliates and their members must complete SafeSport training. US Equestrian adult members with Competing memberships were required to complete SafeSport training by January 1, 2019, in order to remain eligible to participate in US Equestrian activities (which include US Equestrian-licensed/USDFrecognized dressage competitions). US Equestrian general counsel Sonja Keating and CEO Bill Moroney were on hand at the USEF/USDF Open Forum at the USDF convention to give an overview of Safe Sport policies and to take questions. Here is an abbreviated Q&A from their presentation. For more information about Safe Sport, visit usdf.org and choose the “Safe Sport” Quick Link at the bottom of the home page. Q: How will dressage-show organizers track SafeSport training compliance? A: US Equestrian (usef.org) maintains a Safe Sport directory that lists the names of members who have completed the training. US Equestrian is creating an “ineligibility list” for shows to use.

Q: What is the time frame for training compliance for those who join US Equestrian after January 1? A: New members will have 30 days to complete SafeSport training, after which time they would be ineligible to compete until they complete the training. Q: Some classes at US Equestrian-licensed shows, such as dressage opportunity classes, do not require USEF membership. Must entrants in such cases complete SafeSport training, as well? A: Even if you have entered an opportunity class or other class that does not require US Equestrian membership, if you yourself hold any category of US Equestrian membership, you must complete SafeSport training in order to be eligible to participate. When a minor child enters a US Equestrian-licensed competition, a parent or guardian must sign the entry form. If that parent or guardian is not a USEF member, then SafeSport training is not required. Q: What about officials, both American and foreign? A: US Equestrian licensed officials (judges, technical delegates, and others), staff, and board members must undergo background checks and maintain current SafeSport training status, including yearly refreshers. Currently there is no requirement that a foreign official must complete SafeSport training in order to judge at a US Equestrian-licensed show. Schooling-show awards program proposed. Another buzzy 2018 convention topic was the proposal for a new USDF awards program. Presented at the Competition Open

Forum, the USDF Regional Schooling Show Awards Program would enable riders in unrecognized dressage shows to earn year-end awards in four divisions (open, junior/young rider, adult amateur, and non-professional) at seven levels, from Introductory through FEI. Riders, who would be required to hold USDF group memberships, would pay an annual fee to participate, and competitions would pay a fee per show in order for scores to count toward awards, according to Lisa Gorretta, who chaired the task force that developed the proposal. The proposed awards program was developed in response to USDF members’ requests for recognition of their achievements in dressage outside the sphere of “recognized” competition, Gorretta said. Aware that many competitors choose schooling shows as an adjunct or alternative to recognized shows because of cost, travel distance, and other factors, the USDF is aiming to offer schooling-show competitors an avenue for earning national recognition. By making group membership a participation requirement, the USDF also hopes to encourage schooling-show competitors to join their local GMOs, she said. At the conclusion of her overview, Gorretta asked the convention audience to indicate support for the program by a show of hands. The response was overwhelmingly positive.

USDF Volunteer of the Year. Dressage judge, USDF Judges and L Program Committee member, US Equestrian committee member, and steadfast cheerleader for both horses and aspiring judges Lois Yukins, of Manchesterby-the-Sea, Massachusetts, was honored—fittingly, on her birthday—for her tireless efforts on behalf of the USDF. “She has put in countless hours on these committees,” said George Williams, “and is being recognized for her outstanding work and contributions to USDF and the sport of dressage.” USDF Youth Volunteer of the Year. Illinois Dressage and Combined Training Association member Emma Kane, of Algonquin, Illinois, is active in planning activities for her GMO. The recent Marquette University graduate is also involved with Dressage4Kids and with a local nonprofit organization, Veterans R&R Operation Wild Horse, which pairs military veterans and families with mustangs. “Volunteers are essential to the success of USDF,” said USDF Youth Programs Committee chair Roz Kinstler. “It’s always so rewarding to see a youth rider ‘paying it forward’ already. Emma Kane clearly shows her commitment to promoting dressage and her love for the sport.” USDF Members of Distinction. As approved by the USDF Executive Board, the USDF Historical Recognition Committee chose four noteworthy members to receive this honor in 2018. A Member of Distinction is someone who has made outstanding contributions on a local or regional level toward the fulfillment of USDF’s mission of education, recognition of achievement, and promotion of dressage. Priscilla Endicott founded the New England Dressage Association in 1972 and served as NEDA’s first president. The USDF charter GMO has since grown into the USDF’s largest single-chapter GMO, with many illustrious members. At her farm, The Ark, in Harvard, Massachusetts, Endicott hosted clinics with European dressage masters. She was also instrumental in NEDA’s establishing dressage shows—the NEDA Fall Festival remains New England’s largest and most prestigious—and organizing judge-training seminars.

A longtime dressage rider and competitor, McDaniel is noted for her outreach to youth and her efforts in organizing clinics for both youth and adults in Hawaii, in addition to numerous other educational events for her GMO. US dressage Olympic bronze medalist Allison Brock, who hails from Hawaii, remembered a kind gesture of McDaniel’s: In 1991, Brock, aged 11, had competed in First Level freestyle and was at the annual ASDS awards banquet. As she had many times before, McDaniel was called to the stage to accept the ASDS’s Hans Moeller Musical Freestyle Award. “When she went to pick it up, she gave it to me instead. She probably doesn’t know how much that meant to me.” Mary Anne McPhail grew up in the Detroit area and now divides her time between Michigan and Loxahatchee, Florida. A longtime adult-amateur dressage competitor and a retired US Equestrian “S” judge, she has made indelible contributions to the sport. In 1997, she and husband Walter McPhail established the Mary Anne McPhail Dressage Chair in Equine Sports Medicine at Michigan State University, East Lansing. There the McPhails also funded the construction of the McPhail Equine Performance Center for the purpose of conducting ongoing research in the fields of dressage horses’ health and performance. The inaugural McPhail Dressage Chairholder, Dr. Hilary Clayton, has conducted research whose findings have affected everything from the way dressage definitions and rules are written to the design and maintenance of arena footing. McPhail has supported the USDF for years by hosting the East Coast editions of the USDF FEI-Level Trainers Conference at her Florida facility, High Meadow Farm. She revived a struggling Palm Beach Dressage Derby into a prestigious CDI, and she has owned or co-owned highperformance horses including Robert Dover’s 1992 Olympic mount, Lectron, and current international competitor Lonoir, ridden and co-owned by Olivia LaGoy-Weltz. “Serving as the McPhail chair was the opportunity of a lifetime and one for which I will be forever grateful,” said Clayton. “Much has been accomplished as a result of Mary Anne’s vision and foresight. It has become something of a tradition to annually share this research with USDF members at the convention.”

M

errie Velden was away at a show when her Oldenburg colt, Fabulously, was born two weeks late. Her veterinarian let her know via an earlymorning text that mother and baby were fine. “I get a text that goes, ‘Congratulations! You got your colt,’” says Velden, an FEI-level trainer and competitor based in Fresno, California. “Then, she sends me the turd emoji and said, ‘Your colt is a turd.’ I went, ‘He’s brand new and he just hit the ground.’ She goes, ‘Yeah, and he stood up immediately, walked over to me, and bit me.’” The colt was the second foal by Fürstenball out of Velden’s Sandro Hit x Bellissimo M Oldenburg mare, Bonsai. Fabulously’s older full sister was a model citizen and the top USA Oldenburg foal in 2016. “When she was a month old, she was perfect,” Velden laughs. “This thing? It was Satan’s spawn.” His name, Fabulously, was a joke, Velden says of the colt—who has since mended his wanton ways and was named a premium foal and a foal of distinction by the Oldenburg Verband. “I had a really cool name picked out for him,” Velden says. “I named the first baby after my grandmother, Florence, and I had a really pretty name for a colt. Then, I get a poop emoji telling me, ‘This is your colt.’ I dropped the idea of that name, and went, ‘What am I going to name him?’ I knew we had to come up with something really stinker because he’s such a stinker. So, I came up with Fabulously. It’s a joke, and it won’t be realized by 99.9 percent of the people until he is under saddle.”

The joke? One day, at a show, the announcer will say: “So-and-So is riding Fabulously.” “Fabs” was gelded and turned out into a central California field with a pony mare who put him in his place. “I said, ‘He’s the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen,’’’ Velden says. “His hair coat got really long. You know how some horses just get really, really ugly? He did that in spades! It was like he lived in Wisconsin. All of a sudden, winter turned to spring and his coat fell off. It was one of those days where you’re looking at him and you go, ‘Who is that?’” Her ugly duckling having turned into a swan, Velden took Fabs to a sport-horse-breeding show, hoping to attract a buyer. The colt scored an 84.6 percent. “I walk out of the ring going, ‘So, is that good? I’ve never done this before. Did I do a good thing, or is that not a good score? What’s a good score?’” she admits. Velden calls herself “the accidental breeder” and says she isn’t sure how she scored two premium foals from her mare. “There are so many breeders in the United States,” she says. “They have the recipes down, and they make great horses. How do I come up with my second baby ever and do it? It’s a shock. Breeding wasn’t the route I was taking and, when they called me and said that he also won the Traveling Trot award, I was like, ‘What?’ I’m honored. I’m in awe of my competition.” And yes, Velden has changed her mind about that “stinker” of a colt. “He’s fabulous, and he thinks he’s pretty fabulous,” she says. “And he knew he’s not a stinker!” —Sue Weakley

Jameson SW


F

rom the time Jameson SW hit the ground, he was a surprise. When he first stood up, his size was startling to husband-and-wife breeders and dressage pros Martin Kuhn and Kathryn Fleming-Kuhn, since the colt seemed destined to stand well above his 16.1- and 16.2hand parents (which he has indeed done: “Jimmy” currently measures 17.1 hands and is still growing). The other surprise to owner Fleming-Kuhn and rider Kuhn was Jimmy’s latent dressage talent. “As a youngster, we didn’t really see much in him,” Fleming-Kuhn admits. “He just was really, really quiet as a young horse in the field. I knew that he had to be a good mover because of his parents, but we really didn’t see it.” When Kuhn started Jimmy under saddle, the gelding remained awkward and uncoordinated. “He was quite possibly not a horse, but perhaps an elephant in disguise,” he quips. The easygoing youngster was a breeze to start, but by the third ride Kuhn realized they weren’t getting anywhere in their small indoor arena. “He couldn’t make the turns, and in a 40-meter arena he could take the long side in three-and-a half to four strides,” Kuhn says. “He was already on top of the corner, and he really had no ability to balance in that small of an area. He never really got going enough to know where his legs were all the time.” Kuhn took the horse out to a big open hayfield and up and down the hills, where Jimmy finally got moving. “He found better balance and got more strength through his top line,” Kuhn says. “He also has three enormous gaits. He’s a

very large, elastic mover, and that was hard for him to coordinate in the beginning.” Jimmy may be a powerhouse under saddle, but he has a sense of humor in the barn and in turnout, says FlemingKuhn, who has seen her horse engage in such pranks as pulling another horse around the pasture by her tail. “That’s kind of his mantra,” she says. “He’s just a very goofy, playful kind of guy. He doesn’t take life too seriously.” In the barn, Jimmy craves attention. “If you turn your back on him for a second in the cross-ties, he’ll very politely put his chin on your shoulder and try to get your attention back,” Kuhn says. “Thankfully he’s not pushy about it, but he does really enjoy people.” The pair plans to let Jimmy dictate what’s next in his dressage career. “You set goals, but not too firmly, because young horses develop at their own rate,” says Fleming-Kuhn. “He’s certainly on track to do the [FEI Preliminary Dressage Test for] Five-Year-Old [horses], but you never know.” Depending on how Jimmy’s training progresses, they may opt to show him at First Level instead, she says. “He’s immensely trainable and, despite his incredibly laidback nature, he is not lazy at all, which is a delight in any horse but especially in a big horse,” Kuhn adds. “He’s very rideable and extremely trainable. What the future holds for Jimmy? He hasn’t told me that. If he progresses in the next six months like he did in the last six months, he’ll probably be doing Prix St. Georges. That’s a joke—but the amount of progress he’s made in the last six to eight months is really quite astonishing.” —Sue Weakley

MACKENZIE KRAJENKE

Ichiban


K

im Yacobucci’s new Dutch Warmblood gelding had a name she didn’t care for, so she decided to change it. When she discovered that the name of her favorite beer, Ichiban, means “number one” in Japanese, the deal was sealed. Yacobucci wasn’t planning on buying the gangly, undeveloped four-year-old when she went on a horse-shopping trip for friend and student Maryann Miller, but she liked Ichiban’s breeding. “He was not going to win any beauty contests, but he had three really good gaits and an amazing temperament,” she says. “I knew he’d need time both mentally and physically to mature. He’s a very slow-to-develop kind of guy, but he had a lot of potential to collect and, certainly, a willingness to please. So Maryann bought him for me, and I ended up coming home with two horses from that trip, one for her and one for myself.” “Iggy’s” late-blooming tendencies didn’t make him an ideal candidate for FEI Young Horse competition, Yacobucci decided. “I think there are certain horses that are really cut out for that,” she explains. “My long-term goal is to train many horses to the Grand Prix, and that’s my long-term goal with him. Sometimes those [Young Horse] programs don’t always work for certain horses.” For now, Yacobucci hopes to bring Iggy out at Third Level in the spring. “He’s super!” she says of her youngster. “He’s just got such a great temperament, and he’s so willing, and it’s more [a matter] of letting him physically develop. He can do everything. So that’s our plan, but we’ll take it slow. What’s most important is that he stays really happy in what he’s doing.”

To that end, Yacobucci aims to keep the training fun. One of Iggy’s favorite pastimes is dumpster diving: “I’ll take him on a two- or three-mile hand-walk through the neighborhood. He likes to look in all the dumpsters, and I just let him smell and look at things. One day I put a blue tarp down on the ground in the arena, and I got on him. He trotted right over it without any hesitation. He’s just amazing.” Trust-building and a fondness for trash have helped the duo at shows, as well, with Iggy remaining calm around snapping flags, waving banners, garbage cans, and garbage trucks. He’s also developed a taste for Pringles potato crisps, says Yacobucci, a self-avowed Pringles addict who shares with her horse. Every two to three months, Yacobucci makes the 14hour round-trip haul from her Arizona home base to train with Olympian Guenter Seidel in southern California. “As a trainer, I hang on to every little pearl of wisdom Guenter gives me until the next three months when I can go back,” she says. She focuses on making Iggy more supple laterally, and she does lots of transitions to make him more responsive. She’s also started on flying changes. “However, he is so balanced in his canter that he could counter-canter to the moon and back and you never feel like he needs to change,” she says proudly. Iggy is a sweet horse who loves to please, Yacobucci says. He’ll snuffle her hair and sniff her jacket and shoulders as she grooms and tacks him up: “It’s just, ‘Hey Mom’ and ‘Let me check you out today!’ Then I get on, and off we go. And he’s just like, ‘OK. I’ll try it for you.’“ —Sue Weakley

HILLTOP FARM, INC.

SenSation HW


W

hen it comes to Carol McPhee’s horses, it’s a family affair. Husband Scott McPhee is the best kind of “horse husband” who supports his wife in training and at shows, and their 27-year-old son, Nick, is also a willing participant in their equestrian lifestyle. Carol owns and rides several horses, but because they learned about SenSation HW on Scott’s birthday, Carol thought it only right that Scott claims the black beauty as “kind of his horse.” Scott’s selection of MC Hammer’s hip-hop smash “U Can’t Touch This” as “Sen’s” theme song is the perfect choice, Carol says: “I mean, I get chills just thinking about it.” The website of the family’s Field of Dreams Equi-Sport Center, Danielsville, Pennsylvania, contains competition video of Sen’s perfect 10s in the trot and accompanying judge’s commentary, all to the sounds of MC Hammer. The McPhees purchased Sen in July 2016 but left him in Germany until the gelding turned three. When they brought him home, Carol was advised that her special horse needed a special person adept in training young horses to continue his education. Enter Michael Bragdell, head trainer at Hilltop Farm, Colora, Maryland. With a full schedule, Bragdell couldn’t take Sen into training until the following summer, so for nearly a year Carol made the five-hour round-trip haul to Hilltop for twice-weekly sessions with Bragdell. Sen finally

made the move to Hilltop in June 2017, and soon Bragdell qualified him for the 2017 Markel/USEF Four-Year-Old Dressage National Championship. According to Carol, even US Equestrian dressage younghorse coach Christine Traurig commented that Sen is special, so the owner is doubly glad that her talented youngster is in top hands. “I’m very happy with the team,” Carol says. “Michael is really patient with young horses. He doesn’t push, and he does what’s appropriate.” Bragdell says that Sen loves to work and really doesn’t have any quirks. “First Level is still a very basic level that requires strong basics in order to progress well,” he says. “For me, to be successful at this level requires you to be very accurate in your test-riding and to be able to show a supple and steady connection in a forward-ridden tempo.” Bragdell may discuss Sen in a matter-of-fact way, but Carol knows that the trainer has a special fondness for her horse. “Michael’s not a big treat person,” she says, “but I’ve seen him sneak [Sen] treats a few times. I mean, this horse is really special, obviously, if he’s giving him a sugar.” —Sue Weakley

Ilario


A

lot of barn names were tossed around for Ilario when he was imported from the Netherlands. Although the Dutch Warmblood gelding was incredibly sweet, he was insecure. His occasional bolting episodes gave rise to the nickname “Fred Flintstone” because his legs moved so quickly when he was trying to escape. Sometimes he got called “Pretty Boy” or “Scaredy Pants,” but as other “pants” names evolved, one finally stuck: “Fancy Pants,” or just plain “Pants.” Pants was spotted on a video as a coming three-yearold when Maureen Lamb bought him. Lamb’s trainer, Sandra Savage, started him under saddle at four. According to Savage, the gelding is one of the most fun horses she has trained. “When you’re in there and you’re clicking and you say, ‘Hey, let’s try this,’ he’s like, ‘Oh. OK.’ He’s super talented,” Savage says. Lamb agrees. “He’s not one of these horses that learns something and then you get home and a week later he’s like, ‘Oh. I never learned that.’” The barn favorite at Lamb’s California facility, Pants loves to have his chin scratched and watch what’s going on as he peers over his stall near the cross-ties, but he gets anxious when he is left alone at shows. “I mean, he’s a wonderful boy, but he does need to be settled in his mind,” Lamb says. “He just requires somebody to be around. He’s very attached to his people, and his people are attached to him. He has this little retinue. He’s just a lover.”

“He likes his friends and he likes his people,” Savage agrees. “We actually call my groom the emotional-support human. That’s her official title. Her real name is Parrish Frisbee. “He’s the most honest horse I’ve ever ridden and really the most giving,” Savage says of the horse. “He’ll do whatever I ask him to do because, the bottom line is, as long as I’m fair to him—and that’s my responsibility as a trainer, to keep him feeling safe and secure—then he’ll just do whatever I ask. He’s very, very obedient, and he just never, ever says no. And that’s really a strong point when you’re training a horse.” Savage praises the gelding as “very balanced. He’s steady in the connection and shows a lot of longitudinal elasticity as far as collecting and lengthening. He’s already got perfect flying changes without ever really schooling them. I tried the first ones when he was four, and he was perfect. I was like, ‘Oh, well, cool, we can do those. We’ve got that in our pocket now. No problem.’” Although Savage has been Pants’s rider and will remain his trainer, Lamb is beginning to take over the ride. “That’s the plan with him,” Lamb says. “We are in a transition since she’s done so well with him. He’s sensitive, and Sandy says he’s sensitive in his brain, not sensitive in his body. He’s amateur-friendly, just tactful amateur-friendly.” His willingness to learn make him a joy to work with. “He learns when he’s ready, and then he says, ‘Let’s go do something else.’” —Sue Weakley

rainer Craig Stanley says that riding his homebred Dutch Warmblood gelding, Habanero CWS, is like opening Forrest Gump’s proverbial box of chocolates: “You never know, when you go in the ring, what you’re going to get. “It’s two minds that have to work together,” Stanley explains. “There’s never an expectation. All we can do is the best we can do. It’s just surreal that it worked out this way.” “This way” includes not only the 2017 Adequan®/USDF First Level and 2018 Third Level Horse of the Year honors, but also the ultimate young-horse hat trick: the Markel/ USEF Young & Developing Horse Dressage National Championship Four-, Five, and Six-Year-Old titles. Stanley calls the Six-Year-Old win in 2018 “phenomenal,” saying: “That was pretty special. Usually he’s a scaredy cat outside. I mean, 99.9 percent of the time he lays it down in the ring, but when he won the Four-Year-Old [championship], I couldn’t even get around for the honor round…. During the test, when we went to go down center line, the girl picking up the rail dropped it as we were going in. After we did the test, I had to be led out because he wasn’t going to walk there.” Stanley’s home arena in California lacks a dressage court, so Habanero doesn’t see white rails on a daily basis,

the owner explains. But “when he’s one-on-one and you’re doing your thing, he tends to come to the party,” he says, adding, “He must be growing up now because, this year, he was happy to leave the arena.” Stanley recently earned his USDF gold medal on Habanero’s dam, Caliente DG, a horse he’s brought up the levels to Grand Prix. He’s also bred several Habanero siblings, two of which he has just started riding. Although they seem talented, there is just something special about Habanero, he says. In 2019, Stanley plans to take his time developing Habanero’s strength and consistency. “I may bring him out at Fourth Level, but I’m going to focus on Prix St. Georges,” he says. “It’s not to say that he wouldn’t go next year and do well, but it generally takes them time to be good at that level. He’s very capable of that, but they have a brain and the ability to say no. You just hopefully keep things going and don’t wreck it along the way. You can only impress upon them that your way is better. And, hopefully, they agree with that, because just about everything we do with them goes against their natural instincts. I mean, he’s not perfect by any means, but he’s basically got a good brain. You just take each show and hope it’s a good one.” —Sue Weakley

Au Revoir


A

u Revoir has grown up since he earned the Adequan®/USDF Second Level Horse of the Year in 2017, but his barn name, Spook, is still apt. Slow to mature, the Oldenburg gelding has finally come into his own. “He has exceeded all expectations,” trainer Heather McCarthy says. “He just delayed the prize for me. He went from my tiny little peanut into this huge, magnificent powerhouse.” Spook got some time off after capping 2018 with the US Dressage Finals Fourth Level open championship title. Now McCarthy plans to work on developing his strength and confidence in the Prix St. Georges. “I think he will be ready by the end of 2019” for that level, she says, “but until then, training, training, training.” The horse’s predilection for spooking—the obvious inspiration for his nickname—is slowly waning, McCarthy says, but Spook still fails to disappoint. “I’ll bend over and take off his boots after we work and he jumps up in the air,” she laughs. “When I’m on him, he just doesn’t think about all the things in his life that make him jump.” At horse shows, McCarthy sometimes opens Spook’s stall door and hangs a lead rope as a stall guard to give him more freedom to look out. “He is just such a character,” she says. “I mean, he’s into everything, He will take a brush out of the brush box and play with it, play with it, play with it, and then hide it in the corner of his stall. Then he’ll go get another brush and play with it. I think he is just constantly going in his brain. He likes to undo the Velcro on my gloves and, when I am done riding and I’m sitting on his back just chatting with someone, he’ll grab the end of my whip with

his mouth, pull the whip out of my hands, and fling it up and down. He’s just a goofball.” Spook’s owner, fellow dressage pro Sandi Chohany, puts it a little more plainly. “He’s the devil,” she laughs. “I was taking care of him, and he got out. I don’t remember how he got out, but I’m sitting in my bedroom and something caught my eye, and I looked over and there he was, looking in the window. And he was just wondering, ‘Where are you?’ He’s the funniest horse I know. He never was very friendly or affectionate, but all I know now is, he thinks he is somebody!” When Chohany started showing her horse at Training Level as a three-year-old, she didn’t think he looked the way a young dressage horse should. “Finally, he’s starting to look like a horse should look,” she says. “His chest has expanded, and his neck looks like a stallion’s! He’s always on the bit, and he’s always round.” She agrees with McCarthy that the Prix St. Georges, the Markel/USEF Young and Developing Horse Dressage National Championships, and CDIs are in Spook’s future. And McCarthy is happy to be along for the ride. “I’ve been with Sandi for 17 years,” McCarthy says. “I love her. She’s like my mother.” When Chohany teases McCarthy that she would sell Spook for the right price, “I said you’d be taking a part of me away,” McCarthy says. “He’s my heart and soul. I want to have a very long relationship with him. He picks the people that he trusts, and when he trusts you, he gives you his heart. I’m so excited to see what the future holds for him.” —Sue Weakley

Pik L’s Donabella


N

ew Jersey-based dressage pro Shannon Stevens took a gamble when she purchased two-year-old Pik L’s Donabella through an online auction. Anne Sparks’ Horses Unlimited was hosting a herd-reduction sale in New Mexico, and as she watched the video Stevens spied a young horse. Within 30 seconds, she says, she knew that “Bella” was the one. “I’m typically not super spontaneous like this, and everything is calculated risks,” says Stevens, “but, for whatever reason, I saw this little horse and had to have her. She was just free running, and she was moving so extravagantly, yet with so much fluidness. She just had this presence that I was immediately drawn to. It was a little bit crazy; I did it without a vetting! It was just this really strong connection that I had immediately.” Bella turned out to be a well-put-together mare to whom dressage work comes easily. “There’s nothing that honestly has been super, super difficult,” says the owner/trainer/rider. “She’s a little horse with a very big personality. It’s been extremely humbling, and she’s definitely inspired me to become a better rider to help bring her to her full potential and to learn to think outside of the box and be creative in the training.” Stevens keeps the training diverse and fun, incorporating hacking, jumping, in-hand work, ground work, and the occasional good gallop to keep her mare fit, happy, and sound. Much as she enjoys the change of scenery, Bella lets her own-

er know when she is considering being less than cooperative by giving a telltale sign, especially in competition. “She will kind of exhale, but it’s like this little grunt,” Stevens says. Bella also has definite ideas about the care and upkeep she deserves. She makes certain her humans know she requires a mash every night by calling to her minions and licking her lips in eager anticipation. And “she is the definition of a typical girly mare,” Stevens laughs. “She gets a massage blanket, she goes on her treadmill, and she gets the TheraPlate. She’s really set on her routine and definitely loves to be pampered. She is a slight prima donna, but it kind of just adds to the whole picture.” The pair will return to south Florida for the 2019 winter show season with no immediate plans. “In a perfect world, if she stays happy, fit, and sound, I might do a couple CDIs at small tour just to get her back in the ring and tap into that environment,” Stevens says. “But I think my bigger goal to shoot for is to firm up the piaffe and passage and then work toward the Developing Grand Prix championships. The journey has been super rewarding, and she’s been anything but a straightforward, uncomplicated horse. But, you know, I think it makes it that much better and rewarding, and it pushes me to strive to be a better rider to bring her to the full potential. I really, truly believe in the horse. I think she’s very unique and special in her own way.” —Sue Weakley

Selestial R


A

lyssa Pitts believes that Selestial R has the talent to be an international-caliber Grand Prix horse, but she also thinks that the mare would have been an excellent hunter prospect. “We were on a trail ride and a friend of mine, who’s a really good rider and a jumper, was riding her and said, ‘Seleste would have loved being a hunter. She’s so beautiful and would be so careful with the jumps. Does she jump?’” Pitts says. “And I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, she’s got a spring.’ It was funny because 15 minutes later, the horse I was on trips and spooks.” Seleste reacted with a sideways bounce like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. “My friend was like, ‘Well, yes, she can jump.’” Rather than head to the hunter ring, though, Pitts and “Seleste” will keep working toward the trainer/owner’s goal of entering Grand Prix CDIs. Pitts was awarded The Dressage Foundation’s 2019 Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize on Quintessential Hit, her 2017 Adequan®/USDF Prix St. Georges Horse of the Year, but she sold him in the fall. “It was a little bittersweet for me,” Pitts says of the decision. “I asked the [grant] committee if they would consider transferring the award to Seleste. They asked me for videos of her doing the Grand Prix work, and it was approved. We still need to work out the details on it, but it seems like it would be a really good opportunity for me to try to use that in 2020 to help me get to Florida to compete.” Since the Washington state-based Pitts trains with Olympians Debbie McDonald and Charlotte Dujardin, she thinks that a 2020 Florida winter stint would be an ideal op-

portunity to work with McDonald and enter some CDIs. “I think 2019 would be a little premature, as Seleste would only be a nine-year-old, and trying to put her in CDIs would be a lot to ask of a young horse,” she explains. Instead, she plans to show her talented mare in national-level Grand Prix classes in 2019. Although Seleste is a bit of a late bloomer, she’s turned out to be better than Pitts ever hoped. “Earlier on in her career, when she was five, I took her to a clinic in Vancouver, Canada, and that’s where I met Charlotte [Dujardin]. She told me that she thought that Seleste was going to be really, really good. I mean, I thought she was great, but I didn’t know. And again last year, Charlotte told me, ‘You watch, she’s going to be an amazing Grand Prix horse because she’s really correct and has a really good hind leg.’ So I guess the lesson for me is to be patient and trust the training.” Seleste knows all the Grand Prix movements, so for now Pitts plans to focus on getting the mare stronger and more confident. “She’s the real deal,” Pitts says “She’s a top internationalquality Grand Prix horse. Her trot work is beautiful. Her half-passes and her extensions are gorgeous. Her piaffe/passage are stellar, and her transitions in and out of piaffe and passage are seamless. Her ones are steady and straight. She’s a very athletic horse, and she’s really light on her feet. I don’t want to jinx her, but the only classes she ever lost in her life, she came in second. She’s a pleasure.” —Sue Weakley

Faolan


B

ridget Hay’s homebred Oldenburg, Faolan, thinks not only that he is king of the farm but also that her tack room is his private pantry. After their rides, the stallion follows her into the small space, sans lead rope and halter, to scope out the contents of his larder in hopes of snagging some horse cookies, which he craves. “The ones he loves the most are the ones with the gummy frogs on them,” Hay says. “He’ll eat apples, but there’s a strong preference for carrots. He’s very spoiled. He’s like a dog. He comes in my tack-room door, and it’s not meant for a horse, but he’s in there.” Besides his dominion over the tack room, Faolan thinks he is sovereign of all he surveys. He was born and raised on the farm and is the only stallion in residence, but he has never bred and Hay is keeping him solely as a competition horse (for now!). Faolan may be the only stud muffin around, but when it comes to the girls, he only has eyes for Hay’s mare, Fauna. “Even if it’s another random mare at the horse show, he doesn’t act like he is interested,” Hay says. “Only Fauna. And he knows her footsteps. I can’t even sneak up. If I’m at a show and I’m walking her down the aisle toward him back to her stall, he starts yelling.” Aside from his love interest, Faolan is all business at horse shows. Not only did he win the Adequan®/USDF Horse of the Year title, but he was also the Intermediate II

open champion at the 2018 US Dressage Finals. “I remember when I was going out for that test, I thought, ‘Even if we screw this up, Faolan, you’re still a Horse of the Year, so it’s fine,’” Hay says. “He was such a good boy. I was very happy with his test, and I was smiling the whole time in Kentucky. He’s unflappable and not spooky. I never have to worry about him in the ring. He’s very confident in himself.” During the 2018 Florida show season, Hay and her coach, Olympian Adrienne Lyle, decided to take their time with Faolan. This is Hay’s first time bringing a horse up to this level, and so she and Lyle decided to move slowly. “I was really comfortable on small tour because I’ve done that with a lot of horses, but for me [getting to I-II] was like a whole new level,” Hay says. Hays says she’s mulling aiming Faolan for the Developing Grand Prix but wants to discuss it first with Lyle this winter in Florida. “I’m going to see what she thinks,” Hay says. “He’s 10, so maybe leave Developing Grand Prix for another year and do some national Grands Prix.” Whatever Hay decides, she’ll still be hanging out with Faolan in the tack room after their rides. “He’s so funny,” she says. “The one thing about Faolan is, if you meet him, you love him. He’s the sweetest horse ever, and he’ll make you feel like you’re the only person in the world.” —Sue Weakley

Verdades


L

aura Graves is in awe of how her 16-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding, Verdades, continues to raise his own standard of excellence year after year. “This was his fifth season doing international Grands Prix at the team level, and he’s been an anchor of a team every year for those five years,” she says. “He just doesn’t let us down. And I think that’s what’s so extraordinary.” Extraordinary it has been. The year 2018 brought the pair three standout silver medals: at the 2018 FEI World Cup Dressage Final in Paris in April, and team and individual silvers in September’s Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special, respectively, at the FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) Tryon 2018 in North Carolina. After the WEG, “Diddy” got some time off, and he returned to work in early November, fresh and fit, Graves reports. The 2016 Olympic team bronze medalist has set her sights on the 2019 FEI World Cup Dressage Final in Sweden in April, and that translates into a busy 2019 winter competition season in Wellington, Florida. “We’re taking it one day at a time,” says Graves, “but in order to qualify for the World Cup this year, I believe I have to do three World Cup qualifiers instead of just two. That’ll be intense, but that would definitely be our plan. And what makes it really important is how you have to manage these horses.” It takes a dedicated team to keep a top international horse and rider performing at their peak. As a rider from humble beginnings, Graves admits that the financial stress would be difficult to deal with by herself. “I mean, for some people. this journey would be possible for them to fund themselves,” she says. “I’m just not in that

position. I was lucky that we got this horse for the price that we did and that a lot of things fell into place. “I think it’s important to know that this journey could not be continued without the support of US Equestrian, the United States Equestrian Team Foundation, Betsy Juliano, Debbie McDonald, and Robert Dover, who’s done a fantastic job [as US Equestrian national dressage technical advisor, newly retired from that position] and we’re going to miss so dearly,” Graves continues. “And then, of course, my family and the staff who help me on a daily basis to get this done. It’s also been the farriers and the vets. People say this all the time but, in my life, it’s really, really true: It could not have happened without the help of every single one of these people, and every single one of them has given something to my team, and we’re all very connected in that way. And I think that’s a bit of what this horse has done for the sport: He has brought so many people together in a way that they can truly claim a piece of this success.” Graves may share in the accolades, but those who have seen her interact with her world-famous horse can’t help but notice their bond. “Oh, I know it’s something a lot of people see,” she says. “They watch me ride him and they say they can see it, but I think you really see it most when I’m not riding him. When he and I just look at each other, we know there’s something so deep and so sincere about our appreciation for one another. It was like he saved me and I saved him. I mean, I would walk through fire for that horse.” —Sue Weakley
