By Samuel J. Barish, immediate Past USDF President

Education Membership Approved Much effort has been expended over the past few years to develop a strategy to increase the USDF membership. As a follow-up to the work of several ad hoc committees, the 2008 USDF Board of Governors (BoG)

PASSING THE TORCH: Outgoing USDF president Sam Barish (center) is presented with a plaque honoring his service by VP (and newly elected president) George Williams and with an image of the USDF National Education Center by USDF Nominating Council chair Miki Christophersen

recommended the formation of an Ad Hoc Committee to evaluate the Membership and Fee Structure. Last June, this committee proposed a new category of USDF membership: education membership, created for people who want to learn about dressage but who may not be interested in competing at licensed shows. Te target customer is neither a group member nor a participating member. We plan to reach out to other equine organizations whose members are not necessarily USDF members. Te 2009 BoG approved the education membership, which will take effect December 1, 2010. Te benefits package created for the education membership will be the base package for all current memberships, including discounts on and access to all online educational content. Te education membership does not allow for competing at licensed shows, and it includes neither a hard copy of USDF Connection magazine nor governance representation. Accordingly, i believe that this new membership category poses no threat of membership loss to USDF group-member organizations (GMos). USDF education membership will be $35 per year for adults and $10 per year for youth. Te USDF executive Board is looking forward to introducing many people to dressage and USDF through the new membership type.

ively discussion on several issues, from the proposed education-membership category and proposed dues increases to executive Board elections, highlighted the 2009 Adequan/USDF Annual Convention and Symposium, held December 1-6 in Austin, tX. Te symposium, conducted by three-time Swedish olympian Jan Brink, was well received by the attendees. Jan stressed the importance of communication between horses and riders at all levels, and that refining communication techniques should be part of everyone’s daily training program. turn to page 48 for a full report on the symposium.

A toast to You Celebrate your dressage accomplishments with USDF’s yearbook issue

i

t’s a challenge to capture a year’s worth of horsemanship on paper (or on screen, if you’re reading this online), but you’re looking at our best effort: USDF’s 2009 yearbook. Your photos, names, placings, and winning scores are a testament to untold amounts of sheer hard work. Behind every image of a polished horse and rider is a story. We dressage enthusiasts and horse owners know the blood, sweat, tears, money, and dedication involved just in getting a horse and rider prepped to enter at “A.” to do well enough to grace these pages is an achievement indeed. to all of you whose hard work paid off last year, congratulations! every time you leaf through this issue and see your name or your photograph, you’ll be reminded of what you accomplished, and you can be proud. Because this yearbook issue is a consolidation of USDF’s most important moments in 2009, it also contains coverage of the 2009 Adequan/USDF national Convention and Symposium. Sam Barish, who stepped down on January 1 after a ten-year run as USDF president, files his final “inside USDF” column with a comprehensive report on the major initiatives, awards, and changes that took place in Austin, tX. Ten it’s on to an extra-special monthly dose of dressage education with a full report on Swedish olympian Jan Brink’s well-received symposium, complete with numerous simple yet effective gymnastic exercises that you can use to improve your horse. And then we turn our attention to the year ahead. Here on the USDF Connection home front, we’ve made a couple of important changes that i want to tell you about. Te first is the decision, based on a combination of your feedback, economic factors, and USDF’s “Go Green” initiative,

6

February 2010

to eliminate the printed calendar of events from the magazine pages. Between the much more up-to-date online calendar at usdf.org and the many region- and GMo-produced omnibuses, the printed listings were seeming less and less useful (and used). Rest assured that, as always, you can access the complete USDF calendar of competitions, instructor workshops, “L” program sessions, University-approved events, and more on the USDF Web site. Te second change is the decision to combine our July and August issues. Many magazines publish July/August issues, for two main reasons. First, August in particular is traditionally a tough advertising sell. it sometimes seems as if the entire world goes on vacation in August, and advertisers know it, and so it’s a month in which they tend to cut back. Second, many people do go on vacation in August, and even those who “staycation” are busy barbecuing and swimming and gardening (and riding!), and reading tends to get put on the back burner. never fear: We have what i think will be some of our best editorial content yet lined up for 2010—and of course this is also the year of the Alltech Fei World equestrian Games, so watch for plenty of WeG excitement as well. Meanwhile, while the weather outside is (likely to be) frightful, curl up someplace cozy with this big fat yearbook issue, and enjoy!

New Committee Structure USDF is in the process of implementing a new governance structure, as proposed by the Committee on Governance. Tere will be two large umbrella groups: a Programs Council (including such committees as Sport Horse and Adult Programs) and an Administration Council (including such committees as nominating and Bylaws). At the 2009 convention, the BoG approved the concept of adding three at-large directors to the executive Board: two from the Programs Council and one from the Administration Council. Tis comprehensive restructuring of USDF’s councils and committees will significantly improve communications among the executive Board and the committees. Te structure will be much more effective, relying more on ad hoc working groups, with specific,

president@usdf.org

well-defined goals supported by the permanent committee structure. With the exception of adding three at-large directors to the executive Board, the board began implementing this proposal on January 1. At the 2009 convention, the BoG authorized the Bylaws Committee to draft all necessary bylaws changes concerning at-large directors for consideration by the BoG delegates. Te goal is to hold the first election for at-large directors at the 2010 annual convention in Jacksonville, FL.

Budget

TRAILBLAZER: Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame inductee Linda Zang (center) with USDF Historical Committee chair Anne Moss and USDF president Sam Barish

Te BoG delegates were presented with two budgets to consider for the fiscal year that begins April 1, 2010: one with dues increases (which would take effect December 1, 2010—six years since the last major increase) and one without. Te dues increases were recommended by the Ad Hoc Committee to evaluate the Membership and Fee

Structure. Both budgets continue to apply a freeze on staff annual pay increases and bonuses through 2010, with a full-time labor force of 34, as compared to 42 in 2008. Also continued is the practice, established by the 2008 BoG, of treating depreciation expenses as an acceptable non-cash loss, which is a legitimate accounting practice. At the 2009 convention, the BoG approved a balanced budget with all of the recommended dues increases, which will produce new revenue of about $238,000 in the new fiscal year and even more in the following year. Te primary increases are for group members (from $17 to $20), participating members (from $62 to $75), and youth participating

Elections Te BoG elected a new USDF president, treasurer, and directors of the even-numbered regions (2, 4, 6, and 8), all to serve three-year terms that began January 1. George Williams (oH), who served as vice president from 2000-2009, ran unopposed and was elected president by acclamation. USDF is very lucky to have a person of his caliber, ability, experience, and accomplishments to lead USDF for the next three years.

chairs, the executive Board, and selected staff. to prepare this group for items that were expected to be discussed at the annual convention, we sent out the preliminary budget and supporting material, ad hoc committee reports related to important governance and educationmembership initiatives, proposed policies and procedures and bylaws revisions, pre-convention council/ committee and regional directors’ reports, and summaries of executive Board minutes. Tis was more information than USDF has ever distributed before the convention, and we hope that it helped in group members’ convention preparation.

Other News • in response to member concerns about the financial hardship of attending the annual convention and symposium, USDF reduced prices for 2009 compared to 2008: the convention/symposium

package by $96, the convention only by $54, and the symposium only by $54. Te Salute Gala and the awards banquet also were combined in 2009, thereby reducing the cost of attending. • We returned to a split format for the Board of Governors meetings: an afternoon session followed by a morning meeting. Tis schedule allowed for discussion between sessions and between major proposals and voting. • We plan to reach our goal of debt-free home ownership in early 2011 by paying off USDF’s current loan balance of $167,000 on the USDF national education Center. • Tree council/committee chairs stepped down in 2009. i would like to thank them for their service to USDF: Robert Higgins (FL), Audit; Lendon Gray (nY), instructor/trainer; and Sally Chionsini (tX), technical Delegates.

Farewell Tis is my last “inside USDF” column. i owe a great deal to the many hundreds of volunteers and staff members who have helped me so much during the 21 years i have served on the executive Board. i have been privileged to work with many talented, dedicated people. Te one person who has helped me the most in recent years is USDF’s executive director, Stephan Hienzsch. Many of USDF’s successes during this period are the result of his efforts. USDF is very fortunate to have such a talented, high-quality person at its helm. i wish USDF’s new president, George Williams, and the 2010 executive Board the very best in leading the organization into the future. Although there have been many challenges throughout, overall, my years with USDF have been wonderful for me. it has been a great ride. s

member connection “Green Horsekeeping” i read the “green horsekeeping” article in the november 2009 issue (“Reducing Your Carbon Hoofprint”) with interest. Consciousness-raising about environmental impacts is important. Te article did, however, ignore the elephant in the room—or, more appropriately, the horse in the stall. Te horse population in the US is around 9.5 million. of these, between 80,000 and 100,000 are classified as

“unwanted.” Wild herds aside, almost every one of those horses exists as the result of human choice. Population is never an easy topic. in this case, the discussion is further complicated by the related issues of the horse-slaughter ban, the disposal of euthanized horses’ bodies, and the management of wild herds. Tese are emotional and moral issues, with economic, social, and environmental implications. Unpopular though the thought

may be, we need to ask ourselves whether we should be breeding as many horses as we do. it’s true that people earn a living by breeding horses, but the balance sheet of the breeding industry needs to include the moral and ecological implications of its activities along with the economic ones. Breed associations should promote responsibility and practical solutions. More registries could follow the lead of those that approve mares and stallions, emphasizing quality over quantity and maximizing the odds of producing desirable, healthy, sound, and usable foals. Te core message of the various “green” movements is that our lifestyles and habits of consumption are unsustainable. Although they are a rewarding and enriching presence in our lives, horses are not necessities. i do not advocate doing without them, but i urge my fellow owners and riders to consider thoughtfully the obligations and implications of our horses and our equine pursuits.

As you note in your editorial (“Ringside,” november), less is more! in Competition Dressage class this week, i reminded my students that correct balance in their own bodies would free them to use light, accurate aids and would free the horse to keep his balance. if they are struggling and straining to muscle the horse into correct performance, that very force will prevent reaching the goal. Tere followed one of those moments that keep instructors addicted to their jobs: All of them “got it”! Tey got from their horses relaxed and swinging backs, correct positioning, beautiful articulation of the inside hind, and lovely energy. one student commented, “it is so easy this way!” while another chimed in, “Yes, but you’ve got to be careful what you think, because the horses feel it and start doing it right then!” Tere were enough lightbulb moments

competition fei Takes sTeps on equine Welfare, doping issues

i

n the wake of the hyperflexion controversy sparked by viral video of Swedish Grand Prix-level competitor Patrik Kittel and the KWPn stallion Scandic in the warm-up at the 2009 CDi-W odense, Denmark, the Fédération Equestre Internationale (Fei) announced november 17 that it has stepped up its efforts to ensure the welfare and humane treatment of horses being shown in Fei-recognized competitions. A cornerstone of the policy is enforcing welfare-related rules that are already on the books—something critics complained wasn’t happening with sufficient rigor or consistency, especially when well-known competitors were involved. one such rule pertains to the authority of Fei stewards to issue verbal warnings and so-called yellow warning cards to competitors observed treating horses in a potentially inhumane manner. A rider who receives two yellow warning cards in a one-year period is automatically suspended for two months

immediately following the event at which the second card was issued, according to the Fei’s november 17 Statement on Horse Welfare. For additional guidance through the maze of welfare-related issues, the Fei has also turned to the international organization World Horse Welfare. WHW will aid with research and will conduct some consciousnessraising efforts with riders, trainers, officials, and veterinarians. Te Fei statement was followed november 19 by the organization’s approval of new equine Anti-Doping and Controlled Medication Regulations as well as of a new list of prohibited substances. Te yea votes were recorded during the Fei General Assembly in Copenhagen. Te new regulations themselves have already provoked an uproar, thanks to an additional list, this one a “progressive list” of certain nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nSAiDs) to be allowed in Fei competition in limited amounts. Although

some applaud the measure as benefiting high-level horses’ comfort and welfare, others, including the US equestrian Federation (USeF), worry that the step will be complicated to enforce. in a november 30 statement, the USeF called for a delay in implementation, citing concerns that it could cause “a series of unintended consequences” that could affect team participation at the 2010 Alltech Fei World equestrian Games in Kentucky. on December 1, the Fei announced that it would delay implementation of the new doping-related regulations and lists until April 1, 2010, to allow for further research and study. in a subsequent press release issued December 18, the Fei announced that, while the regulations and prohibited-substance list will take effect April 1, the decision regarding the “progressive list” of nSAiDs will be put to a vote at the 2010 Fei General Assembly this november. — Jennifer O.

For instance, a proposed new olympic competition format would do away with the tradition of the Grand Prix’s deciding the team medals, and would permit reserve riders to compete as individuals. Dressage judging, already the subject of much scrutiny and public criticism, figured prominently at the Global Forum. First, German “o” judge Katrina Wüst presented a proposal for a new way of judging freestyles. According to Wüst, using a set point system for the degree of difficulty would render the judging process more objective.

Are Dressage Riders Unfair to Teir Horses? By Paul Kathen Photographs by Kelly McChesney

t

he answer must start with “that depends.” it depends not on the sport or style of riding but on the character and temperament of the rider. Tis i cannot change, and no amount of discussion is going to make a difference until we only allow persons to ride after they have undergone a psychiatric evaluation and proven themselves to be stable and free of impulses toward roughness. Ten, additionally, they must demonstrate an independent seat and a sufficient knowledge of the aids as well as an understanding of the purposes and goals of dressage. Most of us would pass that test, and yet we also must admit to having failed in being totally fair with our horses at one time or another. Fortunately for us, the horses then elevated themselves to being good souls in

that they did forgive but they did not forget. in my opinion, a much greater danger to the welfare of the horse is ignorance. Tis is especially hazardous since so many aspects of riding go against logic, and therefore many riders will defend their positions vehemently. Tey will continue to ride their horses incorrectly and thereby cause them harm and even injury. What is worse, horses seem to prefer that style since it is much more normal to them. i am talking about riding horses in their natural direction of forwarddownward with a very long connection or with no connection at all. Yes, everything about this direction is natural for the horse, and it will tell you so by feeling much easier to ride and lighter in the hand since it carries the weight on its front limbs. if you keep the demands very low, you will not even notice that the horse is often unable to obey since it is badly off balance forward. Tis compares to smokers 50 years ago. Tey enjoyed their cigarettes, not knowing they were slowly damaging their lungs. it was ignorance that allowed their enjoyment. Te horse operates on that same ignorance, and the only way you, the rider, can protect him from the danger of running on the forehand is to consistently ask him to change direction and take more weight on the hindquarters. Tis will cause him sore muscles at first, but with growing strength and your good judgment as to his limits, it will preserve his soundness. Yes, he will show displeasure with the strain on his muscles, and he will at times be heavy in your hand in order to put some of the burden on you. it is a part of the training and unavoidable. if there is unfairness, it lies not in the need to change the horse’s balance but in the rider’s reaction to such difficult situations.

26 February 2010 • USDF ConneCtion

editorial@usdf.org

Changing Weight Causes the Need to Change Movement if we were weightless and just wanted to walk or ride short bursts of trot and canter across a field, riding a horse in its natural direction would be fine. We do, however, add more than 100 pounds to the back of the horse. We want to ride long distances, go at high speeds, jump, ride tight turns, dance, or create any combinations of all of them. We also rarely ride less than half an hour. All of the preceding the horse cannot do without causing injury to its body in its natural way of going. We must, therefore, change the way the horse moves from a forwarddownward direction to a forwardupward direction. Te horse does not easily accept this. it must slowly be convinced to adopt this new direction as second nature. Yes, at times we must be firm in this phase of training and, unfortunately, almost daily we must remind our horses to work in that manner. i believe every trainer and every rider wishes he or she could just sit their horse down and explain the benefit of this artificial direction in preserving the back and joints, especially the injury done on the joints of the forelegs. Such damage is at first painless to the horse, slow in developing, and degenerative. Do you remember when you were very young how adults like your parents and teachers would tell you to do something that made no sense to you at the time? “You will thank me later,” was usually the final explanation. Tis is exactly the way you would be talking to your horse if only you could. to achieve this, initially the trainer must gradually guide the horse to relieve the pressure on its back caused by the weight of the rider by asking it to stretch a set of ligaments along the spine. Tese ligaments act as a rope and carry the rider in a fashion that is comparable to a suspension bridge. Tey do not fatigue. Tey are elastic and are kept taut and anchored in the back by the powerful muscles of the hindquarter, aided by the abdominal


and psoas muscles. in the front they are aided by the muscles at the base of the neck. Tis is known as riding long and low. Te neck muscles are weak in the young horse and must be strengthened through correct riding. Te burden of carrying the rider is then removed from the spine and the powerful long back muscle. Stretching of the back ligaments is an absolute must because the long back muscle is not suited to work in a static manner. it is an action muscle, and it acts as the center part of movement in the horse and is not designed for carrying. When the horse must stiffen these muscles to support the spine in order to carry the rider, its movement becomes short, stiff, and uncomfortable for both the horse and the rider. Te longissimus dorsi (the back muscle) fatigues quickly, and the horse’s back sags. in severe cases it may cause the spinal processes to touch and rub against one another (“kissing spines”), which in turn can lead to bone spurs and eventually to a fusion of the spine in the affected area. to read in depth about this, please go to www.tex-overfarms.com and look under “Articles” for “Why God Wants Us to Ride Horses.” A very good book on the subject is Te Rider Forms the Horse by Udo Buerger and otto Zietzschmann.

club connection the time. Kissing spines also is a hidden problem that is either the result of very bad conformation or of poor riding. Te horse carrying its rider with a dropped back is most susceptible to it. Correct Work Is the Answer in an interview with a leading dressage rider that i read several years ago, the question was asked, “What are the most common injuries caused by riding dressage?” Te answer was “back and hock problems.” While the answer is correct, the most often occurring injuries are in the joints of the hind legs and in the backs of our horses. Tey are, however, not the

result of riding dressage but of riding dressage incorrectly. it can start with poor judgment in the selection of the horse. Bad conformation is very difficult to overcome for the purpose of dressage. if the rider expects great performances from such a horse in any style of riding, the demands of training toward that goal would cause it damage. Here the trainer must recognize the horse’s limitations, bring it carefully along, and thus develop it into a great mount that then can serve for many years under a lessambitious rider. Poor judgment is also often to blame for a well-built horse damaged

Just because this athletic and willing horse can perform advanced movements at a young age by virtue of its talent alone, it cannot do so over an extended period of time. While the talent may give it the athleticism and coordination for such work, it does not grow the necessary strength. only proper work can do that. Just check with all the human superstars. Tey work out daily. Tey recognize that their talent gave them the opportunity to play, but it is their sweat that allows them to make the team.

Much of his thinking is based on the writings of La Guérinière, who is, therefore, the grandfather of modern riding. Mr. Steinbrecht is my “go to” author. He was a veterinarian and managed several stables in which he trained and taught. He is said to have exercised patience and correctness as well as an understanding for the individuality of his horses. He also used the same approach to his students. His passionate writing for correct-

ness of training in order to preserve the soundness of the horse leaves little room for proponents of extremism on either side of the spectrum of correct balance while riding. He called the worshippers of the natural direction (forward-downward) on the carpet for tearing their horses down. Tose who wanted to speed up the change of balance to the hindquarters through endless bending of poll, neck, and the joints of the hind legs, particularly when done unmounted and in place, were treated to even harsher criticism. it must have been his love for the horse and its beauty, especially when expressed through its prideful move-

club connection natural aids but to make the horse sensitive to them. Please answer this question: “What is more bearable to you, a person who tells you exactly what he wants or one who nags at you all day?” Carrying a whip does not mean beating the horse. A touch behind the leg will make the horse respect the leg better the next time the rider applies it. Te same goes for the spur. it is a little more complicated with auxiliary reins. Here we are dealing with the very sensitive mouth of the horse. Mistakes in the use of these reins can have painful consequences for the horse. Tis can lead to a loss of confidence in the hand of the rider and reluctance to stretch into the bit. Tis stretch is the essence of a good connection and must not be destroyed. My policy is never to use draw reins. if i cannot ride a horse without them, either i need help with my riding or the horse is not suited for what i want it to do. in a tough case i may use a German martingale, also known as an olympic martingale, and then only until the

horse has understood how i want it to work. Tis is also my choice with students who have difficulty riding their horse properly on the bit. i have many bits in my tack room, but all are snaffles of one kind or another. Te double bridle should only be used to enable the rider to be extra light, not to force the horse into submission. Some horses are said to be “double-bridle horses.” Tey are less sensitive in their mouths, and its use will allow the experienced rider to ride them with much less strength. Again, in the right hands the double bridle is helpful, but in rough or inexperienced hands it may cause much damage. Marketing has brought about an incredible variety of bits. Tey all claim to be the ultimate in mildness and at the same time the most effective. Tat is misleading, as the mildness or severity is to a great extent determined by the rider’s hand. in difficult cases, one should experiment with which bit suits the horse best. Te purpose of the experimentation must be to find the bit the horse accepts and responds

Balou and his owner, Joan Ehrich, demonstrate the use of the German Martingale (the arrows show the effects). Te picture on the top left shows its correct adjustment. Te horse is carrying itself the way you want him to, and the martingale is just about to touch his mouth. In the picture on the top right, Balou has given just a bit and the Martingale hangs loose, out of action. Tis is the greatest advantage of this auxiliary rein: it eliminates itself. In the bottom left picture, Balou is against the bit and the martingale helps Joan to overcome this resistance. Not so uncomplicated are the draw reins, which are easily overused like in the picture on the bottom right. Te horse is already too short in the neck; yet unless the rider adjusts them, they may still pull the horse further behind.

to. Te temptation is to look for the bit that gives the rider the most control. Remember: You can always move to a stronger bit, but it is not always possible to return to a milder one. All of the artificial aids i have described are helpful when used correctly. Tey also are all designed to eliminate themselves as soon as they have served their purpose of allowing us to ride with lighter aids. Te spurs are the exception since they become a part of the required uniform at the Fei levels. it is a quiet lower leg that an advanced rider should possess that removes the spur from the horse when it is not needed. Te problem with these artificial aids is their misuse, whether deliberate or inadvertent. it is the rough, unskilled, or ignorant rider that poses the problem. As a teacher and trainer, it is my obligation to deal with all three of them. My dedication must be to the horse and to the sport. My tools consist of my knowledge of the horse and correct riding, my skill as a communicator, and my enthusiasm for the sport. Tis should instill in my student a desire for knowledge, the dedication to acquire the physical skills to ride well, and the love for the horse. only this attitude can ultimately prevent abuse, especially when we ride competitively. When a few years back i wrote an article entitled “Why God Wants Us to Ride Horses,” i made the point that an engineer would look at a horse’s design and dismiss it at first glance as unsuited for carrying any loads. Tis weakness is, however, the very reason we can sit on a horse and endure all the movement for a long period of time. We must recognize that, unless we first strengthen its back by supporting it with the muscles of the neck and hindquarters, we would physically ruin the horse. We would also damage its front legs if we allowed it to work on the forehand all the time. Te horse is unaware of these potential problems and prefers to work the way Mother nature tells it to. Te smoker with damaged lungs surely wishes somebody 50 years ago would


Tis is my own artwork. You can clearly see the main muscles that move the horse. Te abdominal muscles (E) swing the hind leg forward, while the muscles of the hindquarter (F) pull it back. Te muscle connecting the poll with the point of the shoulder and the forearm of the front leg (A) pulls it forward; the blue muscle (D) (the broad back muscle) pulls it back. Tese two sets of muscles are connected by the long back muscle (C), painted in green. All of these muscles work in synchronization when the horse is relaxed. Tension in the back muscles will not allow the legs to swing freely and shorten their range of motion. Te red line (B) is the ligament that travels from the poll over the entire topline to the croup of the horse. Here it is attached through a sheet of ligaments to the croup muscles. When the horse stretches its head forward, it applies pressure on the ligament and pulls the back up. When the hind leg swings forward, it pulls back at the ligament, also raising the back.

have stopped him from smoking, but nobody did. even those who loved him were unaware of the danger to his health. Let us not claim ignorance when our horse is stiff, sore, or even lame well before old age. Many authors and clinicians will emphasize gentleness in training and riding, and i wholeheartedly agree with them. Tey don’t mean to not challenge the horse to carry more weight on its stronger hindquarters in order to protect the weaker front limbs. Please take a look at pictures of them riding. Teir

horses are on the bit, collected, and seem happy even though their rider wears spurs and a whip. every time a hind leg swings forward, it pulls on the ligament toward the back and that also pulls the back up, thus carrying the weight of the rider and the contents of its abdomen. in the trot, when one hind leg swings forward, the other swings back. While one leg is behind the vertical, the other is in front. in the photo at left, Sylvia Workman’s Quando demonstrates the movement when both legs meet and are vertical under the horse. Tis is the instant when there is the least pull on the ligament and the back is at its lowest. every time one of the hind legs reaches furthest forward and touches the ground, there is maximum stretch in the leg and on the ligament. Tis brings the back up. Tis is why the back swings in rhythm with the legs. Tis swing makes it possible for the horse to carry the weight of the rider and in turn makes it possible for the rider to sit on the horse comfortably at all gaits. a USDF ConneCtion • February 2010

He gave me the impression that he was truly enjoying moving with power in self-carriage. Tere was no tension anywhere as the swinging tail, ears, and bending joints indicate. He had found his new balance under the rider and was free to express his power and joy. My reward to him was instant to show him that I felt just as good about it as he did.

Witboy’s career parallels that of Gaby. Carol Judge purchased him at age four, and he went into dressage training as soon as he arrived. In these pictures he is 20 years old. He also worked through the levels to FEI and never saw a veterinarian except for routine preventative medicine. He retired from showing at age eighteen. Today, at 21, he is teaching riders to move into the upper levels. Riding outdoors is also great for the motivation of dressage horses.

Saving Q’s Life How a CTDS member’s horse made a full recovery after laminitis, founder, and tenotomy surgery By Megan Georges

IMAGES BY ALICE

i

f you read my “Wenglish” article in november, you are already familiar with Quimero and me. For those of you new to CtDS this year, let me introduce myself. My name is Megan Georges, and i’ve been a member of CtDS since 2001. Quimero is my first dressage horse, and i purchased him in 1997. My fiancé, now husband, gave me the choice of a diamond ring or a horse for our engagement, and i, of course, chose the horse. At the time, i was new to dressage and drawn to the baroque horses, such as the Friesian, Lipizzaner, Andalusian, and Lusitano. Baroque horses seemed unique to me, almost magical. i remember being awestruck at how their manes reach almost down to their knees and their long forelocks dance to the rhythm of their steps. i remember thinking, “one day i want to own my own facility and ride a flashy horse in piaffe and passage all over the place!” i, of course, believed that thought to just be a dream, until while on my horse search i ended up in a stall with a very unique character, Quimero. After about six months of searching for the perfect horse, i flew to Alabama to look at a few young prospects i had seen on video. i was not too thrilled about the gelding on the video, as i thought he had an ugly head and seemed incredibly gangly. i couldn’t imagine this ugly duckling growing into something beautiful. But the moment i stepped into his stall, everything in my life changed. He looked at me as if to say, “Hi Mom, i’ve been waiting to meet you!” i was in love! it really had nothing to do with what i saw with my eyes when i met him; it was something i felt in my heart.

Quimero was almost two years old when i purchased him, so i was able to begin light lungeing work. Before i knew it, we were in the show ring and going to clinics. He was your typical young horse those first few years. He never bucked or tried to hurt me, but he’d drag me everywhere with a chain on his nose. He even let himself out of the stall and went for an embarrassing run around Great Southwest equestrian Center; he did it twice in one show! But for all of the humbling moments, there were 10,000 moments of pride and compassion. i remember the first time on his back, and i remember our first canter. My favorite memory was our first step of passage, when i was just playing around with him when he was five. i had read some books and

and i rode our first intermediate ii test, earning a very nice score. However, in September of that same year, Quimero came up lame on his right front hoof. We had some rainy weather, so my vet, Dr. nancy St. Peter, suggested it could have been a bruise or abscess. After ten days of stall rest and bute, Q began to show signs of being sore on the other front hoof. We x-rayed him again and saw changes in his navicular bones, so we thought it was navicular disease. Te treatment for the flare-up of navicular was rest, so i continued on our rest program. Quimero’s condition continued to decline, and his coronary bands became “squishy.” We then knew we were dealing with laminitis and kept

was experimenting with techniques. i accidentally got the timing right with my seat and legs, and he was willing to do anything i asked, so he just picked it right up like he’d done it all his life. By 2002, Quimero had won many accolades, including Region 9 ABiC/ USDF Prix St. Georges amateur champion and SWDC PSG champion. in the late summer of 2003, Quimero

him on rest and bute to try to get his laminitis under control, hoping no founder (rotation of the coffin bone) would take place. Seven days later, the next set of x-rays revealed 7 degrees of rotation. My vet’s suggestion at the time was to pull his shoes off and let him stand in really deep shavings, with more rest and bute. With the shoes off, there would be

You see, when the hoof is in a shoe, it’s like an upside-down peanut-butter cup, except that with the hoof there are a thousand pounds of weight attached to a bone in the middle of that peanut butter. Since the laminae in the hoof are what holds all of the peanut butter and bone off of the ground, if the laminae become sick, they will not hold well. Quimero’s laminae (we didn’t know at the time) were dying off at a very rapid rate, so the decision to pull the shoes was a good one. What we didn’t know yet was that he was

rotating so rapidly that it was going to take an expert to correct his hooves. Quimero seemed better with his shoes off but could still barely move. After two months, i contacted a veterinarian who proclaimed herself to be a laminitis expert. She decided to put him in a reverse shoe and change the angle of his hooves. i had a feeling that this was not a good idea, but i tried to trust her. two days later, Quimero was much worse and had a glazed-over look in his eyes. He was in so much pain that i had to carry water and food to him because he couldn’t move. He also showed cracks in his soles where

his coffin bone was coming through. i contacted my original vet, Dr. St. Peter. “Doc” saved Quimero’s life with one sentence: “Megan, this has become too bad for me to treat him; we have to find you an expert at this.” A farrier, wanting to specialize in foundered horses, had recently dropped off some flyers at Dr. St. Peter’s office. She gave him a call, and not 20 minutes later i got a phone call from the farrier, Ron Marshall. i was instructed to buy a Styrofoam cooler and duct tape and to meet Ron at Q’s stall. Something really strange happened when Quimero saw Ron coming for him; he lifted his hoof without being asked. Q was previously in so much pain that it was almost impossible to pry one hoof off the ground, leaving him to weight the other one. Quimero knew Ron was his savior! Ron consulted with Dr. Bruce Lyle of Aubrey equine, who was at a laminitis conference in Florida. Dr. Lyle instructed Ron to fax him Quimero’s x-rays and move Q to a clinic setting, where he could build him a special shoe. My husband and i got a bunch of rubber mats together and hauled Q to Dr. St. Peter’s. We let Quimero rest in his taped-on foam shoes that night while Joel, Doc, Ron, and i worked late faxing x-rays to Dr. Lyle, drawing out instructions, gathering materials, etc. At the end of the day, Quimero was wearing wooden shoes—clogs, actually! Ron carved them out of wood. Tey had indentations for his coffin bones (now protruding through the soles of his feet). He did feel much better in his clogs, but this wasn’t the end. Tis was just to get him comfortable for him to make a trailer ride up to Aubrey, tX, the next day. When we finally arrived and met Dr. Lyle, he mentioned that my horse was likely going to need a tenotomy surgery. i had read about tenotomy surgery online and was terrified. From the reports, it was claimed to be a salvage procedure for pasture horses, and there was a good chance he’d never be sound again. After settling


Q in for the night, i drove to find a hotel but cried so hard that i missed the hotel and ended up a few miles short of oklahoma! By the time i got to my room, i had come to the conclusion that Quimero had given me six wonderful years of athletic performance, and so the least i could do was give him a chance to be out of pain as quickly as possible, even if he would end up in a pasture. Little did i know at the time that it is possible to rehabilitate a horse back to good athletic performance after tenotomy surgery, if you take the time and effort to help your horse heal and follow your veterinarian’s orders exactly. For those of you unfamiliar with the tenotomy process, the deep digital flexor tendon runs through the leg and attaches to the bottom of the coffin bone, also known as the P3. When rotation of the P3 occurs (founder), naturally a slack in the tendon occurs as well. When there is slack in a tendon, it starts to spasm and pull harder, and before you know it, it is pulling the coffin bone in a rotated position even further. Tis then breaks more laminae, which creates more slack, which causes more spasms, which creates more rotation, and so on. in a lot of cases that are this extreme, severing the DDFt is the only way to stop this process. Te next morning we went to work. Quimero was x-rayed and venogrammed. in a venogram, they put a tourniquet on the lower leg and inject the veins with a contrast dye to see which veins have good circulation and which veins have died. Q’s left front looked pretty good, but the right front was a bit grimmer. Dr. Lyle suggested the tenotomy surgery on both DDFts and resetting his feet. i was able to observe Q’s tenotomy surgery, which is a relatively simple procedure for knowledgeable veterinarians, and watched them reconstruct his hooves. Dr. Lyle and Ron had to build hoof where there wasn’t any, using glue and fiberglass. After the surgery, i was optimistic and had a strong feeling that Q

was going to be feeling much better soon. i left him in the hospital for the next few months, where he was monitored closely. When he finally returned home on January 1, 2004, he was still wearing casts on his legs and was on stall rest. Dr. Lyle explained that, as long as we kept up with his rehabilitation program of monitoring the hooves and the legs very closely, Q should heal enough to be able to carry a rider again. However, he couldn’t promise that Q would be able to return to competition. i took Dr. Lyle’s orders very seriously and followed the instructions to a t. Swelling must be kept down for a long period of time and the hooves must be perfectly balanced for a good six months or more while the tendon grows back. We reset Q’s feet three weeks after the surgery, and then Ron reset and x-rayed his feet every five weeks. Quimero also wore pressure bandages for three months and, even for several years after the surgery, i

kept him in standing bandages 24/7. Trough the next year, we took things very slowly and progressed to a bit of hand-walking here and there. By late March, i was back on his back and walking him again! Quimero has healed enough that he has progressed to a basic aluminum shoe with a rocker toe. Sometimes he is even barefoot and remains sound. Just this year, i took away the pads. Just like the peanut-butter-cup description i talked about earlier, i kept up with the sole support for more than four years until his laminae healed enough to support his feet. Since Quimero’s recovery, he has earned many more accolades, earning two more Fei Regional Championship titles, at intermediate i and intermediate ii. i have also earned my USDF gold medal on him. in 2008, we took a year off of showing but plan to start competing again this year in Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Freestyle! s

When my dressage instructor first asked me if i wanted to enter a local schooling show, i looked at her in disbelief. “You’re kidding, right?” i asked. “not at all,” she said. “You guys have really come a long way with your lessons. You’ll do great.” i’d had no intention of showing when i started taking lessons. i just wanted to get my horse and myself in better shape. But the more i thought about it, the more i got excited about entering the show. it would at least tell us how much we really had learned about dressage. it would be fun! Well, we found out there were still a few more things to learn! one lesson was to train my horse not to stop for the call of nature during the test. My horse apparently has a nervous bladder and stopped for a break at K during our very first test. i also learned what it means when the judge

rings her little bell at you during the test. i discovered afterward that i had memorized the test wrong and should have stopped when the bell rang. My horse enjoyed his first show so much, he didn’t want to get back into the trailer to go home! two hours later, i finally convinced him that he truly did want to go home and share his adventure with his barn buddies. Since then, my horse and i have worked a little harder and entered a few more schooling shows. We’re improving our scores little by little. At one show in fact, we won a first place and a second place ribbon. My horse had to take a potty break again, but at least this time he waited until the very end. We’re going to suggest an addition to the test pattern – halt, salute, pee. everyone else appreciated us marking X for them. We’re still having fun and finding something to laugh at in ourselves at

each show, as well as something to be proud of in each point earned.

Dressage – A Bond So Strong By emily Layeski

first Place: “Pas de Deux at Woodland” by Elodie Huguet

Trough fleeting moments of perfection we find another piece of who we are, and through mistakes we learn how to pick ourselves up. We know each other’s weaknesses and fears, and we confront them together to better ourselves as a team and as friends. Te more we conquer and endure, the more we trust, love, and confide in each other. We know that iron sharpens iron, so we encourage and spur one another on to greatness. We keep our minds and hearts open to reasonable ideas and suggestions, and experiment to see how we can improve ourselves and the world around us. We grow to learn that wicked and cruel ways are never effective or convenient, and that being kind and reassuring is the best way to teach. on our journey to perfection, we teach each other valuable lessons such as love, trust, compassion, and forgiveness. We learn how to have confidence, and how to better explain things that seem unexplainable. Last of all, we know and understand that we will never be perfect beings. But our hope is that we will be close.

Exclusive interview with new US dressage technical advisor Anne Gribbons

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT: Gribbons (with her horse and GP mount Alazan) has experience in all facets of dressage

44 February 2010 • USDF ConneCtion

SUSANJSTICKLE.COM

BY JenniFeR o. BRYAnt


t

he law of convergence has been hard at work for dressage pro and Fei “o” judge Anne Gribbons. For the Swedish-born Gribbons, of Chuluota, FL, 2009 brought a chance at a dream job—technical advisor for the US dressage team—as well as the crème de la crème of judging appointments: head of the dressage ground jury at the 2010 Alltech Fei World equestrian Games in Kentucky. Te rub: Because of the competition rules, choosing one would require forfeiting the other. Gribbons’s path to these plum opportunities has not been entirely smooth. But with contracts finally signed (she chose the technical-advisor job over the WeG judging position), this experienced competitor, trainer, and coach is looking forward to helping elevate US dressage to new heights. in an exclusive interview with USDF Connection, Gribbons shared her goals, her priorities, and her pragmatism.

USDF Connection: How did you come to apply for the position of technical advisor for the US equestrian Federation? Anne Gribbons: i at first had no intentions of doing this at all. For a long time i knew we were looking for a coach, and i had presented a somewhat different angle to the position as an option in 2008 when the USeF Active Athletes and High Performance Athletes Committees met in Chicago. Later on, i was approached by each of the riders who competed in Hong Kong, as well as by other past team members and elite athletes, asking me to apply for the job. And when i read the job description, i thought, there isn’t any of these things i couldn’t do. it’s a very versatile job description if you look at it. it appeared that many of the elite riders believed that i could do a good job for them as a leader. Tat would be my first task: to work with the riders to try to organize them so that they get the help they need to work. Like a team manager. What skills and experience do you bring to the job? i have taught and coached for over 30 years, and have probably produced about 25 Grand Prix horses between my own and students’ horses. i have some very successful students, including many USDF medalists and even one Young Rider gold medalist, Lesley eden, who has been my student since the age of fifteen. Most of my riders i have started totally from scratch, and also my horses. i have taken them from nowhere to Grand Prix. But that’s not the only thing. i think even more important for the athletes is someone who can keep order and try to unite us so we’re all going in the same direction, which

has never really been the case before, because we’ve never had a resident coach since [the late Col. Bengt] Ljungquist in the 1970s. We have never had one because they’ve always lived abroad. We have never had a [US] citizen. Tat i think is a positive step. Because i am a judge, i also hope to help them polish their tests and communicate to them what things need to improve. And then why did i apply? i thought, perhaps i can, sort of at the end of my equestrian career, having done so many different things, give back to the sport in this way. if we can become more united and add some programs—all the way from the ponies and up, so that in the future the youngsters and the new riders have a path to follow from beginning to end—that would be a real satisfaction if it works well. Your predecessor, Klaus Balkenhol of Germany, was the USEF dressage coach. Was his limited access to the riders a problem? And vice versa. Tey had limited access to the coach. Te coach would blow in from somewhere, do intensive training, and be gone. i would hope to be much more of a presence at all of the levels so that i could actually supervise and give advice and communicate with all the riders and the trainers, and eventually get a good feel for the United States—where we have our new riders, how it’s all going to eventually mesh. Tis is going to take time. Tis is not going to be an overnight sensation, and it isn’t going to be easy, because our biggest enemy is distance. Distance is a problem that doesn’t exist in europe. Tere they can hop in the car, and in a couple of hours they can all meet somewhere. Some judges go home for lunch at the big shows. it’s completely different. Tis has been one of our greatest obstacles over the years. Maybe by having the technical advisor here, we can at least to some degree solve that problem. What is the duration of your contract with USEF? Trough London [the 2012 olympics]. even if all goes well, i don’t know if i would want to continue after London. i wasn’t looking at this as a whole new life, just as a very exciting thing to do to see if we can’t look at this whole thing from an American point of view. of course we have to go to europe, but we have a lot of capable trainers in this country that we haven’t made full use of. Why shouldn’t we try to come together and help ourselves, like they do in europe? Many of us, myself included, have gone on these hardship tours to europe to train and show. We have now brought the knowledge home. We can now train at home and send our riders to europe when they’re ready to show instead of going back and forth and spending so much time away from home. a USDF ConneCtion

Will you have to stop judging during this time? i will have to stop judging Americans, for sure. i am not allowed to judge Americans in any CDis (Fei-recognized dressage competitions). Tat’s the Fei rule. to keep my judging license, i have to judge a minimum amount of CDis. Which means, to maintain my license, i will have to travel to some exotic locations, such as Australia, Russia, China, South America, wherever, where there will be no Americans. How will your new position affect the judging panel for the 2012 Olympics? You will be ineligible to judge there; and the current FEI rules state that a judge, who must be an “O,” may officiate at only one Olympic Games. Te US will have no “O”s eligible for London unless new “O”s are appointed between now and then. From my work on the Fei committees, i think i can safely say that that rule [barring an “o” from judging at more than one olympics] will not stand. Tat’s my prediction. Talk about the technical-advisor selection process. As you know, a number of rumors about the process and the front-runners were leaked before the USEF announced that you were the successful candidate. in the interview, i was asked about my philosophy about the job, how i could be helpful. i think one of the reasons i was picked is my great versatility. Tere isn’t anything in the horse industry i haven’t done. i have worked on committees forever. i have chaired both the USeF Dressage Committee and the Active Athletes Committee twice. Te USeF eligible Athletes Committee interviewed the final three candidates in Denver. one of those candidates was [Danish trainer and international competitor] Morten Tomsen. He had been in California and had given some clinics to most of the eligible athletes. Tere were rumors that we were somehow going to share the job. i did not know him at the time of the interview. i applied; i was selected to go to Denver; i went to Denver and gave an interview in front of the athletes. Tat was all i did. Some of the biggest names in the equestrian industry, not all from dressage, were on the original search commit-

With the WEG coming up in September, what is your priority? it has to be the eligible athletes who are contenders for the WeG. Tere is no point in pretending that, going into WeG, we are in fabulous shape at the moment. i judged the [2009] european Championships. it was an unbelievable experience. Te Dutch are phenomenally strong. if they were allowed, they could field three teams and win all the medals. Te Germans will come back. Te British are clearly coming on, for silver. We have, in reality right now, one horse that is ready to take on that group. Tat is Ravel, of course. We have another couple that have had good results, but not consistently. Ten we have green horses that look promising, some of them with green riders, who take more time to develop. We have good quality out there but not enough quantity going into the WeG. our short-term goal for WeG is to try to qualify the US

tee. [international driving competitor] Chester Weber organized the whole thing, and he did it very correctly, and he kept the confidentiality [of those applicants, like Gribbons, who did not wish their having applied made public during the selection process]. [However,] [a]s soon as the news broke about how the vote went and who got the job, there was a plethora of misinformation as well as breaches of confidentiality on the conference calls. Tat went on for several days before anybody took hold of it and corrected it. What are your goals in your new position? We have to start national-level programs from the bottom up, including the ponies and the youth, because we have no upcoming generations. it is my hope that Lendon Gray will take on that responsibility. We are also putting together developing clinics (which we used to have but were dropped) for the in-between people—the young riders, the Brentina Cup riders—who are not quite ready [for international open competition]. Ten we will also have elite clinics for the athletes who are looking to go to WeG. i am really pleased that Debbie McDonald has accepted the position of developing coach and will be helping me by directing and doing the majority of teaching of that program, which is enormously important for our future. i will go to as many clinics and qualifying shows as possible, to observe our riders and help them in any way they wish, and of course i will use my judging experience to tell them “what the score is.” it will be strongly encouraged that the riders bring their [own] trainers so there can be interaction between the coach and the trainers. My greatest hope is that we can all work together with mutual respect.


team for the [2012] olympics. if we do not medal at the WeG, then our next opportunity to qualify would be the 2011 Pan American Games. Although our team lineup is not really strong at this point, Steffen [Peters] looks good for an individual medal. However, as we all know, with horses things change constantly, and in our case, that could be a very good thing. By London, i hope we will be in fine shape.

ervations about going forward with the technical-advisor job—already a massive undertaking—because of the additional responsibilities and time commitments that serving on the Fei DC will require. “But the athletes had already waited for me to start for four months, and the clock is ticking for WeG, and i feel a responsibility to try to live up to the faith they have placed in me.”

it is probably accurate to say that, for the next couple of years, Gribbons will be the busiest person in the dressage world. Meanwhile, fellow US “o” dressage judge Linda Zang (MD), who judged at the 1996 Atlanta olympics and who in December was inducted into the Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame, will replace Gribbons as head of the 2010 WeG ground jury. s

Any final thoughts? i’m sad about not being able to judge WeG, but you can’t do everything. i hope that we can have an American program that works, despite the distances. i have all kinds of good intentions, and i will treat everybody fairly. i may have to make some decisions that people won’t like, but it will be in the best interests of the country and the sport. Editor’s postscript: in november 2009, after our interview, Gribbons was given a four-year appointment to the Fei Dressage Committee. no one was more surprised at the announcement than Gribbons herself, especially considering that Fei rules prevent chefs d’équipe from serving on the Fei DC— and Gribbons’s original USeF job title was chef and technical advisor. But she would be the first American to sit on the Fei DC in seven years, and the USeF was keen on the appointment. Someone hit on a solution: remove “chef” from Gribbons’s job title and find someone else to handle those duties. enter former Fei dressage director eva Salomon, a fellow Swede whom Gribbons recommended to the USeF and who is now the newly appointed USeF dressage managing director and chef. even with the job-title switcheroo, Gribbons says, she had serious resUSDF ConneCtion

Jan Brink Keeps It Real The down-to-earth Swedish Olympian conducted a rider- and horse-friendly USDF symposium BY JenniFeR o. BRYAnt PHotoGRAPHS BY BRUCe LAWRie

Y

es, Jan Brink saw the demonstration horses’ flaws—on the forehand, behind the vertical, not quite straight, whatever—even if he didn’t comment on each and every one. Te three-time Swedish olympian and 20-year student of Finnish dressage legend Kyra Kyrklund misses little or nothing. But as a veteran trainer and instructor, he understands that, especially when working with young horses or less-experienced riders, there’s such a thing as too much information. “Pick one thing to work on in a session,” Brink explained to the audience of 300 at the 2009 Adequan/USDF national Symposium in Austin, tX. “We can’t fix everything in one hour.”

48 February 2010 • USDF ConneCtion

Brink has clearly absorbed his mentor’s keep-it-simple approach. For those USDF symposium-goers who were lucky enough to catch Kyrklund’s star turn in 2008, Brink’s presentation made for a complementary follow-up. A lineup of demo riders and horses at ages and stages to which audience members could relate made for especially relevant and useful information for the largely adult-amateur spectators.

A Self-Made Rider Brink, 49, did not grow up on a farm or with horse-loving parents. An accomplished junior hockey player, he began riding as a teen in large part because that’s where the girls were. He discovered a talent with horses, and his interest in horsemanship grew.


At sixteen, Brink gave up hockey and spent the next three years at Flyinge, the Swedish national stud, where he met Kyra Kyrklund. Although she remains his primary trainer, he would go on to work with others, including a stint at Warendorf, Germany, under the legendary Georg Teodorescu. (one of the reasons Brink admires Kyrklund, he told the audience at his Saturday-night symposium lecture, is that “she is confident enough to let her students try others.”) Brink entered the horse business full-time when he was just nineteen. He and a business partner purchased a rundown cattle farm on 50 acres in Hässleholm, Sweden. Tey renamed the place tullstorp Dressage Stable and focused on training, prepping and standing stallions, and sales. today, thanks in part to improvements fueled by some handsome horse-sales profits, tullstorp is one of europe’s best-known dressage and breeding facilities. Brink, who bought out his partner after seven years and who now owns the farm outright, stands nine sport-horse stallions and trains from the showplace facility. Best known of tullstorp’s stallions is Brink’s three-time olympic partner, the Swedish Warmblood stallion Briar 899 (Magini – Charis), who retired last year after a remarkably long career. “He was the first horse to have a ten-year international Grand Prix career,” Brink said proudly. Tat longevity is no accident. to be successful, Brink explained, a horse must be able to perform at a competitive

level without undue stress. He chose Briar’s shows carefully and made sure to give the stallion down time and to vary his routine with hacks and gallops. Brink frowns on training methods that tax horses’ bodies and minds. “Te end does not justify the means,” he said.

Brink’s Basics Like Kyrklund, Brink trains using simple sets of principles. Te first is Kyrklund’s own concept of “zones”: Horse and rider each have their own “comfort zone,” “stretch zone,” and “panic zone” when it comes to performing and learning. Te comfort zone is the safety zone, in which the individual is relaxed and confident. Learning takes place in the stretch zone, which is challenging but still manageable. in the panic zone, learning stops and is replaced by fear and self-protection measures. Dressage training occasionally flirts with the edge of the panic zone, but the instructor or rider must back away if panic begins to set in. even when working in the stretch zone, return frequently to the comfort zone to give the pupil’s body and mind a break, Brink said. When he rides, Brink thinks of horses as having three “control points”: 1. track 2. tempo 3. Length of strides. Te track is the horse’s line of travel. Te rider must control all parts of the horse’s body on the line of travel, whether it’s in a straight line or some combination of forward and sideways, as in half-pass or other lateral work.

FORWARD TO STRAIGHTEN: Demo rider Deirdre Malburg aboard the six-year-old PRE stallion Sabio GF in a balanced canter

TROT VARIATIONS: Brink had Claire Darnell improve the trot of her mount, Carnegie, by alternating between shorter and longer steps

Here’s a deceptively simple exercise that Brink used to help several demo riders to gain control of their horses’ strides: From a designated point on the rail (say, B), ride a 20-meter circle, asking the horse to take slightly longer steps. When you return to B, ride another circle, this time fifteen meters, asking for slightly shorter steps. Alternate between the two circle diameters and between the longer and shorter steps. Tis exercise can be ridden in both trot and canter. Brink actually used the word rhythm instead of tempo when referring to the horse’s speed (rate of repetition of the footfalls). During the symposium, he clarified his terminology for his American audience (europeans, the Fei included, tend to use “rhythm” to encompass the concepts of both rhythm and tempo). What he meant was this: it is important that the rider be able to make the horse take faster or slower steps within the gait. Te rhythm of the gait (the sequence and timing of the footfalls) should not change when the tempo CIRClE EXERCISE: 20- and is varied. 15-meter circles


CONTROl CHAllENGE: Lauren Hadley works to keep Ares’ balance and to influence the length of his strides in Brink’s circle exercise

Finally, the rider must be able to lengthen and shorten the horse’s strides at will. Mastery of these three control points makes the horse completely adjustable, Brink explained. Brink used young rider Lauren Hadley and the Swedish Warmblood gelding Ares to demonstrate what he called the three most basic signals that the rider gives the horse: • Forward driving aids • Restraining aids • turning aids. Brink uses mostly his lower leg to increase the horse’s speed. Te basic restraining aid is the rein. Te turning aids are a combination of the rider’s weight, the lower leg, and the rein.

Assessing the Horse if Brink’s methodology sounds simple so far, then consider the title of his symposium: “Communication: A two-Way System of Understanding.” Te olympian stressed that dressage is of no benefit to horse or rider unless both parties understand what is being asked for and how to achieve it. What’s more, a lack of understanding erodes the quality of the performance because uncertainty, anxiety, or fear begets tension, lack of harmony, or worse. Tis is why Brink chose not to overburden horses and riders with complex and wordy instruction or to overtax horses’ bodies and minds. Here’s how Brink breaks down the training process. First, he said, he thinks of dressage training as being divided into two parts: 1. Te horse’s gaits and outline (position of the neck; his overall “frame”) 2. Learning the exercises and movements.

NECK RElAXATION: While clearly talented and adjustable, Susan Shiba’s mount Fer-de-Lance can become tense and high in his neck. Brink showed how training with the neck made a bit lower and deeper (which is not, he emphasized, hyperflexion or “rollkur”) can facilitate relaxation and swinging over the back.

When you ride, think about which of the two parts you are focusing on at any given moment. Keep in mind that (as taught in the USDF “L” program) the purity of the three basic gaits are the foundation on which all dressage training is based. A good trainer never compromises the gaits in training the movements or exercises. Brink’s super-simple method of self-analysis will help to keep you on the correct path as you train: “if you have a problem, ask yourself: • “is the speed too high or too low? • “is the horse’s neck too high or too low? • “is the horse too free or too restricted in the neck? “normally, you’ll find the answer to the problem,” he said.

Gymnastic Exercises Te influence of Kyrklund, who is famous for her “toolbox” of exercises, was in evidence as Brink gave each demonstration rider a prescription for improving her horse. A sampling: Exercise 1: Introducing counter-canter. Beginning in true-lead canter, ride a shallow (three to four meters) oneUSDF ConneCtion

Gradually increase the size of the loop. “if he gets a little too high in the neck or too empty [lacking contact] in the inside rein,” Brink instructed Deirdre Malburg, “ride a little more with your under leg [lower leg] to push him forward onto the bit.” Exercise 2: Lateral and bending challenge. Tis exercise tests the horse’s suppleness, evenness of bend, and acceptance of the outside rein. in collected trot, turn down the center line (say, at C). At G, ride a ten-meter circle left. When you return to the center line, proceed straight ahead in shoulder-in. At X, ride a second ten-meter circle left. Tis time, proceed in travers (haunches-in) when you return to the center line. Repeat on the opposite rein. Exercise 3: Simple changes. to improve changes of lead through the walk, ride collected canter down the center line. Make a balanced transition to walk and immediately ride a few steps of leg-yield toward the leading leg (from right-lead canter, you’d leg-yield to the right, away from your left leg). Make a transition to the opposite-lead canter directly out of the leg-yield, and proceed straight ahead for a few strides. Walk and repeat the leg-yielding and the canter depart on the opposite rein.

ExERCISE 3: Improving simple changes


ExERCISE 4: Canter serpentine with 10-meter circles

Exercise 4: More counter-canter. Begin a three-loop serpentine in true-lead canter. As you cross the center line, ride a ten-meter circle in truelead canter. When you return to the center line, proceed through the second loop of the serpentine in counter-canter. At the next center line, ride another ten-meter circle in truelead canter and then make the final serpentine loop. Repeat the exercise in the opposite direction. Exercise 5: Introducing tempi changes. With a horse that has mastered single flying changes, canter across the diagonal (“Stare at the letter, and imagine you’re riding in a tunnel,” Brink advised

“LIKE A TUNNEL”: Tat’s how one must ride the diagonal before a flying change, Brink told demo rider Debbie Hill on River Side Lady

demo rider eva oldenbroek tabor on Uberlinus). early on the diagonal line, ride one flying change. When the horse does this successfully, add a second flying change later on the diagonal line. Don’t count the change sequence; just ride the two changes as separate events. “Build on this,” Brink said. if the horse anticipates a flying change at the end of the diagonal line, quietly make a transition to walk. Repeat until the horse learns to wait for your aids. Exercise 6: Introducing canter pirouettes. Start by training short steps in collected canter on a straight line. “Te horse cannot start to pir-

ouette on his own,” Brink told demo rider Susan Shiba on Fer-de-Lance. When the horse remains straight in the shortened steps, ride Brink’s box exercise: Canter straight ahead on a quarter line; then ride a box with a quarter-pirouette in each corner, each time turning toward the middle of the arena.

Tips and Insights every good clinic or symposium is sprinkled with nuggets of wisdom or little “lightbulb moments”—if you’re paying close enough attention to catch them. Jan Brink’s USDF symposium was no exception. Here, in no particular order, are some of his gems. • When evaluating a horse’s gaits, Brink’s ideal walk is an 8. “Bigger is dangerous,” he said, because it becomes more difficult to show variety within the gait. • teach the horse to relax in the walk by giving him many

MARCHING WALK: Eva Oldenbroek Tabor’s goal for Uberlinus’s collected walk should be upright, even steps “like a soldier,” with the neck fairly up and still, Brink said

short walk breaks during the training session. Doing so mimics the tests, in which the horse is expected to walk and relax for a short period, then resume the work. “Release; pick up the reins; and go on.” • “Don’t try for more than your horse can do. if the walk won’t get an 8, then ride for a 7, not for an 8 or a 9 because doing so will make him tense.” • Accept the realities (and fallibilities) of dressage judging. “After a while, the judges get to know your horse. Tey know his extended trot is a 7, and they won’t give it an 8. Tat’s the way it is.” • Horses have “strong sides” (stiff sides) and “empty sides” (hollow sides). Te rein contact on the strong side tends to be heavy, while the contact on the empty side will feel softer. “Which is the problem?” Brink quizzed the audience. “not the strong side; the empty side. Te horse must accept the hand. it doesn’t take the connection on the soft side.” • Te show warm-up ring is not the place for training. “My competition warm-up is like a pilot’s checklist: is everything working? Fine; next item. Move on.” • Brink believes that the extravagant movement of some of today’s top international horses may come with a price. “Horses like [Dutch competitor edward Gal’s mount, Moorlands] totilas can’t go like that for eight years in the Grand Prix. Te horses are fantastic, but they can’t move that extreme without breaking down.” • to get to the top in international dressage competition, “You have to be a little bit crazy—just like the top horses.” • Brink keeps a training journal. “i write down everything after a really good ride so that i can remember what i did and how i was feeling.” • in a training session, “normally, trot work comes more naturally if you do canter work in the beginning, so i generally do canter work first.” • Be positive with students, and commend modest improvements. Referring to a demo rider: “Good is not perfect. Good is good for her today. in the future, we can make it better.” • “You have to keep the contact through your elbow.” • Riding low and “deep” is not necessarily “rollkur” or hyperflexion. “Anky van Grunsven chooses hot horses that like to go up [to become high and tense in their necks and toplines]. She has a system that works for her. When she gives a clinic, she does not teach rollkur.” • it is difficult to correct the horse with a huge walk and a lateral (pacing) tendency. Brink’s best advice is to “shorten the steps and train at home with a slight cross-


ing of the hind legs—leg-yielding—because a horse cannot pace if he is crossing.” • in the canter, “it is better to take one big half-halt and release for five or six strides than to take back a little bit at every stride.”

Above All, Horsemanship in an exclusive interview conducted during the symposium, Brink praised the horsemanship and concern for equine welfare he’s seen in his trips to this country. “You are good horse people,” he said. “But there is a fine line if you want to improve. You cannot always sit in the comfort zone and

not ask for anything from the horse, because you won’t get anything. You have to stretch up a little bit. Some people are almost afraid to put the horse on the bit. But you have a good program here with the USDF, clinics”—made all the more remarkable by our nation’s huge size, he noted. Brink believes that sport leaders must ensure the welfare of dressage horses in competition. “i want the sport to be fair to the horses, and also to look fair to the horses, because otherwise we are not going to have any audience looking at it. if i feel i have to go over the limit all the time with my horses in order to perform good in the ring, i’m not fair to the horse, and i don’t want to do the sport any more.” s

GREETINGS OF THE SEASON: At the Renaissance Austin hotel

A

ustin is “deep in the heart of texas,” as the saying goes, and USDF Region 9 director Bess Reineman and her posse of cheerful and dedicated volunteers—most representing the Central texas Dressage Society and other area GMos—worked tirelessly to make visitors at the 2009 Adequan/USDF national Convention and Symposium feel at home. Social affairs can get a bit unwieldy at large conventions; but in Austin, the expected economy-driven smaller numbers worked to Region 9’s advantage. USDFers took over Serrano’s, an (appropriately) tex-Mex restaurant within walking distance of the host hotel, for a relaxed evening of meeting, greeting, and manageable buffet lines at the Region 9 Lone Star Welcome Party. For a complete report on the convention, see “inside USDF” on page 4. turn to page 48 for coverage of the 2009 Adequan/USDF national Symposium with Swedish olympian Jan Brink.

in a two-horse or six-horse trailer right next to mares, so they have to be used to being like a regular horse.” In 2008 and ’09, Rashka “won 110 of his 121 classes, scoring as high as 91 percent under saddle.” Borden points out that so far in the stallion’s showing career, including classes up to Tird Level, “we’ve had only five judges ever score him below a 75.” Only in the USEF Four- and FEI FiveYear-Old tests has success eluded him: in the first because Borden inadvertently entered the arena carrying his whip, and in the second because an abscess and ulcers had left the horse light on weight and conditioning, though his vet had cleared him to participate. One goal for 2010 is “to qualify Rashka as an FEI Six-Year-Old to represent the US in Europe. His walk and canter are his main strengths, so we feel this will be his best test yet.” Rashka’s first foals arrived in 2009, and all but one scored Grade I with SWANA (the Swedish Warmblood Association of North America), or Premium with the ISR/Oldenburg registry. “He bred primarily to jumper mares,” Borden says, “and the inspector was quite surprised at the improvement from the movement of the mares. Several of those babies are in the top three foals inspected, but we haven’t shown them yet. We hope to take some of them to Devon next year.” Becasue of the increased focus on Rashka’s training, Borden will show him less and “be selective” with his breedings in 2010. He doesn’t foresee ever selling the stallion, saying, “He’s right for our breeding program. He is a truly breathtaking, charismatic performer. As Robert Dover said in a recent clinic, ‘He is a once-in-a-lifetime horse.’ ” —D. J. Carey

ateriale winner Rashka is a multi-generation product of Kenneth Borden’s Little Bit Farm. Not only his sire, 2009 Prix St. Georges Horse of the Year GP Raymeister (see page 76), but also his dam Tashka, damsire Opus (by Olympic Idocus), and Tashka’s dam, Bashka, were all bred there. When Rashka was foaled, Borden says, “I knew right away it was a wonderful cross.” Te youngster promptly began proving him right, winning all the foal and weanling classes he entered and taking the 2004 USDF reserve Weanling Colt/Gelding Horse of the Year title with an average score of 81 percent. Rashka didn’t show again until age three. At his 2007 30day stallion testing, he earned a score of 164.86: “the highest in the history of US stallion testing,” Borden says. Afterward, the owner was tempted to sell him; “but then I started showing him, and I’d never won so much in my life with a horse. So I thought, ‘Well, I’d better keep this one.’” He adds, “I kept Opus, his grandfather; and Rashka really does seem to be a replica of him. Opus got a ten on ridability at his 100-day test, and I really think Rashka has the same type of ridability. He’s so easy and comfortable that we’ve used him in our lesson program, even with beginner riders. We really believe everyone should have the chance to ride that quality of horse.” Te young stallion’s mind and attitude match his physical talent, Borden says. “From day one, I knew he was a very level-headed horse, He’s very quiet and brave, wellmannered in the stall and on the show grounds, has a great attention span, and accepts new experiences and learns new things very easily.” He adds, “Our stallions are treated like other horses; they’re not pampered little kings.

ridable enough that, “like all our Little Bit stallions, he’s been used in our lesson program.” Reserve champion in the 2004 Stallion Short test, Masterpiece has shown up through Tird Level, earning “many high-score-of-show awards and both in-hand and under-saddle scores in the high eighties— and some rated hunter classes, too.” A stall injury limited Masterpiece’s showing this year: “He kicked his feed bucket as another stallion went by.” Te bruise to his foot “went all the way down to the bone,” so Borden gave him several months off to heal. now back in training, the stallion is “schooling Prix St. Georges, and he has a ‘baby’ piaffe and passage.” However, Masterpiece will probably do more schooling than showing until he’s ready for Fei-level competition. Borden thinks, “His ability to collect is going to be an incredible forte down the line. once he moves up the levels, i think he’ll be a shining star.” Masterpiece is approved as a stallion by both the Swedish Warmblood Association of north America (SWAnA) and oldenburg registries. His first foals hit the ground four years ago, and “he’s thrown both hunter types and dressage types so far,” Borden says. Borden has kept one daughter to date, Mona Lisa. A registered oldenburg herself, she “produced a 2009 Class i SWAnA colt” by another homebred star, Rashka (see page 62). Masterpiece has an additional distinction: SWAnA inspectors have requested exportation of his frozen semen to Sweden—not a typical recognition for American-bred stallions. “He’s one of only a few select stallions that they’d like to export,” Borden says proudly. He adds, “i tell everybody: He’s my favorite stallion.”

ach year USDF awards the “traveling trot” trophy to the high scorer among all that year’s DSHB (Dressage Sport Horse Breeding) champions. But 2009 winner Masterpiece not only outscored the year’s other champions; his 87.250 median score was the highest of any horse in USDF history. Masterpiece is one of five USDF year-end award winners from one illinois barn, Little Bit Farm. owner Kenneth Borden says the farm started about 20 years ago through the shared vision and effort of “my father, my mother, and myself. My mom rode racehorses before i was born; as a kid, my father did some shoeing and also broke horses. i was in grad school at the time.” Te farm name reflected the fact that “we had just a little bit of money and we were going to do a little bit of everything, a little bit at a time.” Breeding was part of the “everything” right from the beginning—and it’s succeeded to the point that Borden also earned the 2009 USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year title. Masterpiece’s sire is Master 850, Kyra Kyrklund’s partner to a sixth-place finish at the 1998 World Cup Dressage Final and a winner of Sweden’s five- and six-year-old dressage championships. His dam, Miss nickel Annie, a Toroughbred who showed successfully in dressage, hunters, and eventing, is also the dam of another distinguished Little Bit homebred, 2009 Prix St. Georges Horse of the Year GP Raymeister (see page 76). Comparing the half-brothers, Borden says Masterpiece is “a little bit hotter; i like the bad boy, i guess. But he and Ray are very similar.” (As of november ’09, the two had shown in the same classes four times, each winning twice.) Borden calls Masterpiece “the most comfortable horse i’ve ever ridden. He sits like his sire and his elasticity, like Master’s, is breathtaking.” Yet with all that movement, he’s

Rosie arrived at Hassler Dressage, where tate trains, in summer 2008. “We just love her,” tate says. “She’s our supermodel.” At first, the mare was “not real happy about using her body in a good way, so we’d get on or lunge her to help her back release. She’s like a diesel engine: a little bit of a slow starter. But then she clicks into gear and gives you such a good feeling. i remember one test in Lexington, Virginia, where she ended up getting like an 82; i came out thinking, ‘Tat was the most perfect training Level test i’ve ever ridden in my life. i know what good feels like, but this was perfection. Tis horse is perfection.’ And i’ve never had a horse that could counter-canter and canter/walk at this age before. it’s easy to forget that she’s only five because she’s so capable.” After some nervousness at the first couple of shows, Rosie has “become a pro. We go in, go down the center line, and she lights up. She gets this fancy strut; that’s why we call her the supermodel. She just ‘walks down the runway.’ But she always waits for me; she wants to do it together.” nixon-Fulton plans to keep Rosie with tate for at least another year, spending time with them in Florida this winter and riding the mare “as much as i can, until i feel confident that i can take her home. But i’m keeping an open mind about that. if she proves to be really spectacular, she may stay with JJ longer.” Meanwhile, thanks to embryo transfer, Rosie is also furthering Wild oaks’s breeding program: Her 2008 filly Song’n’Dance and 2009 colt Walberto “both went to shows early this summer and did very well. At seven weeks, the colt had that presence. it tickles me that her babies are going to carry it on.”

n 2003, Jackie nixon-Fulton decided to buy “two of the best mares i could find” and begin breeding at her family’s Wild oaks Ranch “to have my pick of the ‘cream of the crop,’ and to know exactly what happens to them from Day 1.” Rosentanz was her first foal. “i’d heard people say how spectacular a foal was, and i’d thought, ‘Well, how can you tell?’ But we looked at her and we just knew. She had presence from the beginning, and she was solidly built. She had good bone; she had this neck that came up out of her withers—and almost every foal from this mare comes out looking about three weeks old. She didn’t have exceptional movement yet, but she had the conformation for it, and she had star quality.” Shortly afterward, oldenburg Society director Holly Simensen saw the baby, “looked at me, and said, ‘Jackie, people breed all their lives trying to get a horse like this.’” Te summer ‘Rosie’ was two, nixon-Fulton sent her to her sire’s home base, High Point Hanoverians in Chestertown, MD, for barn owner Angela Barilar and trainer Klaus Schengber to show in hand. Te filly did well—and did even better the next year, at the 2007 Hanoverian breeding inspection, earning the top score for any non-Hanoverian mare. So nixon-Fulton started thinking about training. Tough she dreams of riding the mare at Fei levels herself some day, “she’s so special that i didn’t want mistakes made. i wanted things done correctly from the beginning.” She settled on another Maryland-based trainer, Jessica Jo (“JJ”) tate, whose career she’d followed for a couple of years. Te partnership has flourished—to the point where “JJ has become my instructor.”

He’s willing to work for you, but he kind of has to feel like it’s a partnership.” Getting him ready to ride “takes forever, because he has to reach his neck around and give me a hug. And if i rush at all, it’s almost as if he’s a little miffed. He won’t be bad or get silly, but he just doesn’t work as hard.” She’s also learned that “if you laugh at him, he will immediately try to do again whatever made you laugh. So we can’t laugh if he pulls on another horse’s blanket”—because then he’ll pull more blankets. Barry’s learned to use this response: “if, say, we’re schooling halfpasses and i kind of laugh and pat him, he thinks, ‘Man, that was great!’ and he’ll come into the next one with a little more bounce and a little more spring.” Franklin says Montgomery’s come a long way from that gangly three-year-old: “He’s big, he’s bright; he’s got a presence.” And now that he’s settled down (with some help, Barry says, from Christine traurig clinics early on), “he’s working well; he’s got a good attention span and the fire to go forward.” in 2008, Montgomery was the Great American/USDF Region 2 First Level open reserve champion; he earned this year’s HoY title despite a popped splint that kept him out of the ‘09 regional finals. next year Barry is aiming for Tird Level—and hoping some day to do Grand Prix. She says, “He’s always up for a challenge. if there’s not enough for him to think about, he thinks too much on his own; but the more i ask, the better he is. He almost never says, ‘Tis is too hard.’ i think he enjoys his work, and i really enjoy working with him.” —D. J. Carey

idelined from jumping by a serious accident, hunter/ jumper-barn owner Marcia Franklin decided to learn to drive. taking driving lessons at Klaus Biesenthal’s Bell oaks Farm, she got to know working student Kathryn (“Kt”) Barry. Knowing “very little about dressage,” Franklin began watching Barry and other Bell oaks riders show at nearby Lamplight equestrian Center. eventually, she started talking with Barry “about what it would be like for her to have a horse that she got as a youngster and didn’t have to sell, or have the owner take it back after a year.” By now, Barry was training out of Bell oaks and Franklin had realized, from experiences in her own barn, that “what i enjoy most is watching a young horse develop into something special.” So she decided to invite Barry to find a dressage prospect to start and bring along. Te trainer searched for eight months. “i wanted to get the right horse. i looked and i looked, but i couldn’t find anything i liked better than this big gangly chestnut homebred we had out in the field.” Franklin remembers that the horse had “no muscle tone when i first saw him, so i had absolutely no expectations. But Klaus said that one of the things dressage people look for is a good walk, and that the horse had a really good walk.” trusting that “Klaus and Kt both have a good eye, and Klaus had bred him,” Franklin said, “Let’s try him.” Barry quickly discovered that her new three-year-old had inherited his dam’s temperament. “She was a good show horse, but so smart that she wasn’t easy to deal with. And he turned out to be the same: He knew where the warm-up was and where the show ring was, and he understood the difference between the two. So we had to kind of go back to

Lyle (winner of the 2008 Brentina Cup, she started out as a summer working student for the McDonalds and later went to work for them full-time) agrees that initially Argentinia was “a little untrusting of people and a little standoffish and frightened of trying new things. She’s come a long way with that, under saddle as well as being around us on the ground. But it took a while for her to let us earn her trust.” Consistency and patience were key. early on, Lyle says, that meant deciding not to show Argentinia as a six-year-old. “We needed to go back and work more on the basics until she was truly understanding of what we meant.” When the mare reached a point of dependably “coming out every day happy and understanding and willing, and not afraid or confused about anything, we decided to go ahead and put her in the show ring at Second Level. And she was excellent. You never know if a horse is going to be spooky in there, or shut down and be dull. But she’s kind of stepped up to the plate in every show ring and been a very good girl. So i think she likes being in the spotlight and going down that center line.” Te mare has started schooling Fourth Level/Prix St. Georges movements, and both Lyle and Jane Tomas expect her to show Tird and possibly Fourth in 2010. “Te year after that,” Lyle says, “i hope she’ll be ready to do the small tour: Prix St. Georges/i-i.” Both women would love to see her in the 2011 Pan American Games, but both agree on the importance of “not rushing her, and seeing how she goes.” to Lyle, “She’s a very special horse.” And to Tomas, “She’s my father’s favorite horse. He loves all the horses, but he just feels that this mare has something really special.”

hen Parry Tomas spotted Argentinia at the Verden Hanoverian auction in Germany, the mare was five, older than the youngsters he and wife Peggy typically buy there for their River Grove Farm (such as 2009 Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame inductee Brentina). But he thought “she was definitely something special, you could tell,” says River Grove rider Adrienne Lyle. “She had three very pure gaits. And i rode her and liked her, so Parry went ahead and bid on her, and we were able to bring her home.” Tere, the Tomases’ daughter Jane says, a reeducation program began—because with horses schooled for the european young-horse competitions, “everything is about ‘how big is the gait?’ So when we got Argentinia, she wanted to go big all the time. She had no idea what a half-halt was and no idea what a smaller gait was. it took about a year to completely retrain her so that every time you took a feel of the reins, she didn’t just want to jut out in this huge stride.” Retraining—done mostly by Lyle, with input from Brentina’s longtime rider Debbie McDonald (retired from showing but still training at River Grove, along with husband Bob)—was largely a matter of helping the mare find her balance taking slower, smaller steps. Fortunately, Jane Tomas says, Argentinia “has this great engine behind,” so much of the job was “a matter of helping her understand she could do it.” But she also needed mental retraining, because “the way she’d been ridden was very strong, and she was a little fearful. So Adrienne has developed this wonderful trust with her; you really see her starting to trust that she’s not going to be in trouble, that everything’s going to be oK. And once you develop that kind of relationship, the training comes along so much faster.”

very solid; i think he won every one.” She adds, “He’s so nice and uphill, and his trot work has been so strong, that all his tests have gone pretty well. His canter work is a little bit greener, but his changes are good. He needs a little more time to get strength in the canter, but in general he’s just absolutely fun and reliable.” He’s also “been away quite a bit now, and he’s getting much better at traveling. And he’s less “chatty” going into the ring this year—though “i believe he whinnied every time we passed through the opening at A to start a test, just so everyone knew he was going in!” At home, Mason says, Warsteiner continues to hold center stage, as he’s done ever since conquering his initial shyness as a not-quite-three-year-old imported from a Dutch breeding barn to her activity-filled Flying Change Farm. “He’s got a ton of personality; he’s definitely the barn favorite. everybody has to pet him.” instead of heading south, Mason and her horses typically spend “a nice, quiet, cold winter in new Jersey. But it’s good to take a break from the showing. it means our horses have some time to get more developed and stronger.” As for Warsteiner’s 2010 program, “i’m not really sure at this point. He loves the lateral work, especially half-passes. We’ll definitely do some Fourth Level, and he might be ready for Prix St. Georges, or at least the Developing Horse tests. But i basically take everything a step at a time, so it all depends on how he develops over the winter. He’s already working all the movements in the Prix St. Georges; he just needs to get stronger and put them together.” in short, Mason stands by her last-year’s assessment: “From what i’ve seen, he’s got everything he needs to go to Grand Prix.” —D.

arsteiner and owner/rider Heather Mason must be doing something right. in 2008, they earned the Adequan/USDF First Level Horse of the Year title. in 2009, they did it again—two levels up. “We’ve just been going along at his own rate,” Mason says, “but he’s getting his mileage in.” Mileage was one of their focuses, in fact. Because Warsteiner “got a little nervous” being away from home at the 2008 Great American/USDF Region 1 Championships, this year Mason “decided to take him along with the CDi horses” to some fairly distant competitions, as well as showing locally. Te year’s highlights came at three championship shows. Te first was the Markel/USeF Young Horse Dressage eastern Selection trials, held in Raleigh, nC, on Memorial Day weekend. not only did Warsteiner handle “his first-ever big ‘away’ show” very well, but, with a final score of 8.14, he won the Six-Year-old championship. Tat win entitled him to participate in the Markel/USeF national Young Horse Championships, at Lamplight Farms in Wayne, iL, in August, where he finished sixth in his age division and had the highest trot scores among six-year-olds. Te second and third highlights came in the fall. At the Region 8 Great American/USDF Championships, held as part of September’s neDA Fall Festival in Saugerties, nY, Warsteiner finished as Tird Level open champion. Ten in october, in Allentown, nJ, he won both Tird Level open and Tird Level Freestyle titles in the Bengt Ljungquist Memorial Championships. in the ring, Mason says, Warsteiner has been “absolutely wonderful.

Harding agrees that Rigo is “a wonderful horse. if he was a hand bigger, it would be ideal, but he works bigger under tack. And with the expression he has in his gait, he’s a very elegant horse when you see him go.” “He’s a little bit opinionated, a little snarky. But he tries to contain himself, and as long as tonya doesn’t spoil him too much, he keeps his work ethic. And he’s very trainable; he’s got very flowing, elastic gaits. His extended trot is definitely a highlight. His changes are starting to solidify and looking quite nice, and he’s going to have absolutely beautiful pirouettes. Te collection work has been coming along much better now that he’s gotten stronger. He’s a lovely horse, but you have to ride him. He doesn’t do it on his own. Te right flying change was very easy to teach him; the left flying change was definitely a bit more difficult than with your average Joe. But once he has it, he has it.” in showing, she says, Rigo’s always been pretty dependable. At their first competition, a First Level test at the WeF, he’d never shown before. “But he walked out there like a pro. He had his tail flipped up over his back a little, and he jumped into and out of the arena twice before the bell rang, but then he was fine. He went in and got a 76 percent.” in 2010, Rowe says, Rigo will move up to Prix St. Georges, “and we’ll have our eye on doing the Developing Horse program.” She laughs that she went to Germany looking for a Ford taurus “and came home with a Ferrari.” other than an occasional hack after he’s been worked, riding Rigo isn’t currently in her picture. “But i spend a tremendous amount of time handling him and working with him and loving him. it’s a relationship with a horse that i’d never experienced. i believe i was supposed to find him.” —D.

fter her leased first dressage mount went back to his owner, tonya Rowe started horse-hunting. Tree years later, north Carolina-based friends Joe Sandven and his wife, Helen Wiest, invited her along on a buying trip to Germany’s Hanoverian auction. “My husband, Michael, got on the internet, found us some inexpensive tickets, and we went.” Sandven, a Grand Prix-level rider and competitor, had flown over earlier; when Rowe arrived, “he told me, ‘i found a horse for you.’ At the time, Rigo was only 15.1½. i’m five feet three, not tremendously tall, but i said, ‘He’s way too small.’ Joe said, ‘tonya, he’s going to be great. Just get on him and ride him around.’ And i rode him around, and i fell in love with him. it was like sitting on a cloud.” Tough Rowe had ridden her leased horse at Fourth Level, “i was actually more of a solid First Level rider, and Rigo was very green.” Sandven offered to help her train but soon decided that Rigo needed to be nearer his owner. He recommended Aiken-based Shawna Harding (owner of 2008 intermediate i Horse of the Year Come on iii). Rowe took her horse to Harding, who “looked at him and thought, ‘oh my goodness, he’s so small!’ She asked, ‘What do you want to do with him?’ i said, ‘i want you to train him, and ride him, and show him. And when you think he’s ready for me, i’ll take over.’ “Well, she started showing him at First Level, taking him to Wellington for the Winter equestrian Festival, and they won everything. Ten they moved to Second Level, and they won everything. And they moved to Tird Level, and they won everything. And they’ve been continuing—it’s amazing being along for the ride.”

Getting ready for the World Cup—and for 2010—Barteau took Ray and two other horses to Florida for a Kyra Kyrklund clinic before Frankfurt and a winter of schooling and showing afterward, based at Cathy Morelli’s winter barn. At press time, one project in the works was a “brandnew freestyle, with all new music—Blues Brothers 2000— and a new pattern. We’re also working a little toward getting piaffe and passage on him and introducing the Grand Prix movements.” owner Frantz says, “We haven’t plotted it all out yet, but they’ll be doing some winter-circuit shows. So Kassie will be down there for her first full winter by herself, with her three favorite horses—and Cathy, who’s had a large influence on her success. We’ll see how it goes. And i’m sure Kim and Yvonne and i will go down from time to time.” As for Raymeister’s being a stallion, “he’s such a gentleman and such a sweetheart, and i think a lot of that is due to the way he’s treated by Kassie,” Frantz says. “He can be naughty, but ninety percent of the time he’s an absolute dreamboat.” She’d “love to be selling more breedings, but the primary importance right now is Ray’s showing.” He’s been bred a few times, and “his offspring seem to be spectacular.” And Frantz and the Barteaus are looking forward to the outcome of a matchup with one of her mares: 2007 First Level Horse of the Year Sarasanna GP. Meanwhile, Kassie Barteau encourages Frantz to ride Ray, too: “He’s so sensible that i know he would take care of her; she should get to enjoy him as well.” Frantz laughs, “Kassie keeps saying, ‘You’ve got to ride him more.’ i say, ‘no, i don’t.’ ‘Well, i’ll just wear him out, and then you can ride him.’ And i say, ‘We’ll see.’”

ike Warsteiner (see page 72), Raymeister is a secondtime Horse of the Year. in 2006, he won at training Level with Yvonne Barteau riding. For his 2009 PSG title, Yvonne’s daughter Kassandra (“Kassie”) Barteau held the reins—and she and “Ray” also earned the US slot for the 2009 Fei World Cup Dressage for Young Riders, to be held in Frankfurt after this issue’s press date. to owner Ginna Frantz, whose Grand Prix equestrian facility is home to husband and wife Kim and Yvonne Barteau’s KYB Dressage, Yvonne’s turning over the ride on Ray to Kassie “was an amazing gift—but i think she saw the potential of Kassie and Ray together. And i think she made the right decision.” After the turnover, “about three years ago,” Kassie Barteau “started working up the levels with him: First and Second, then Tird and Fourth, and then Young Riders—and our partnership just has been growing and growing. He’s so talented and willing, and offers so much; i haven’t found the end to him yet.” in return, “i spend as much time as i possibly can with him. i do all the grooming on him, check on him in his stall a lot, give him treats. i think it’s superimportant to have a partnership” with Ray and all the horses she rides. “it helps me a lot, getting to know them in their stalls, not just jumping on and riding them.” A surprise with Ray was his sensitivity. Her previous partner, Gabriella, had been “such a physical ride. With Ray everything is much more mental, and you really have to focus when you ride him. He’s always paying attention, he’s always in the game—so if you’re not there for him for a minute, he’s already gone. He wants to have an all-the-time conversation with you. Tat was a big change, but it’s making me a better rider. He’s taught me so much.”

invited trainer nick Wagman to take over Montango’s education. Tat arrangement continued until 2007, when Wagman relocated to a facility bought for him by a sponsor. Te Keenans turned to Peters, with whom Mary and her daughter had ridden. Te trainer says, “i was always impressed with the horse and with nick’s work. So when Jim and Mary asked me to take over the reins, i was pretty excited. Tey’re both very good horse people, very realistic.” tuesdays through Fridays, Montango and another horse haul 20 minutes to Peters’s San Diego barn. After each one gets legged up, Peters says, “i make sure to walk a little bit before the workout and after work, so there’s time for some bonding.” Te trainer says the Keenans knew Montango “had the talent for the piaffe/passage and the one-tempis,” but that achieving those would be “a matter of time.” Mary Keenan describes Peters as “a master of diplomacy” with her horse, and Peters admits that Montango “can take every ounce of patience.” An example: “He gets a little nervous about the piaffe, so i try to use it in different spots in the workout: i try it once a little bit after the warm-up, then sneak it in from a little trot work,” usually getting “ten or twelve pretty good steps” before excitement sets in. initially, owners and trainer agreed to aim toward qualifying Montango for the 2008 i-i national Championship; the horse not only succeeded but finished reserve champion. For 2010, they’ve agreed on a goal of moving Montango up to i-ii, but Peters has “learned never to pick a certain show and say ‘Right there he has to do an intermediaire ii.’ i find it much more beneficial to allow the horse to tell us when he’s ready. Te show at which he’s going to do it is up to him.”

home with horses had long been a dream for Dutchborn, apartment-raised Mary Keenan. Shortly after she and new husband Jim leased a horse for her (“we were not well off ”), “i said, ‘Do you think we could ever have our own horse?’ He didn’t answer.” Tat was in the mid-1960s. Some ten years later, they were able to build a home, barn, and arena north of Los Angeles. Te horses they developed there with daughter Kim, who eventually competed them, included USDF Fei-level Horse of the Year winners Apollo, Dêja Vu, and Dutch treat (whom Kim also rode to the 1988 north American Young Rider individual and team gold medals). in late ’96, with Kim out on her own as a trainer, the Keenans found “a property we could afford” in Rancho Santa Fe. Tey “built a Mediterranean house and attached the barn, as we do in Holland. We have a complete dressage facility; it’s a dream come true.” not long after settling into their new home, the Keenans started looking for “another good horse,” and in 1999 they found Montango. Ten a five-year-old, “he’d been jumping for a year; we watched him doing some 20-meter circles.” Mary Keenan thought he had ability and liked his conformation and movement. “Te trot had very little suspension,” she says, “but i knew from our past experience that it could be developed.” Soon after Montango arrived at Shamrock Farms, Keenan learned “never to assume a horse knows what a mounting block is. i thought, ‘He’s pretty tall; i’ll just use it,’ and—whoosh!—he was gone. He was a lot of horse— and he still is a lot of horse.” (He still doesn’t like mounting blocks; even with olympian Steffen Peters, “we just lower the mounting-side stirrup, then bring it up when he’s on.”) After six months working with the horse, Mary Keenan

and collectible, but the one-tempis were a little harder, so he had to concentrate and focus on me, not himself. Tat was hard—but eventually it worked. “now he’s not a challenge at all. He’s a fun, fun, forward horse; he never says no. And i never have to push. He likes to work; he loves to show off.” Alazan’s love of showing is Gribbons’s “favorite feature about him. if you take the van out and pull the ramp down, he will load himself and then stomp his foot until we start.” At the show, “When i put my hat and coat on, he can hardly wait. He’s like, ‘Come on! Let’s go!’ And he drags me in—and makes me laugh, every time.” At home, Alazan “does get out sometimes—he knows how to open his door. other than that, he’s cool in the barn because he has an inner confidence in himself. Most really good show horses, i think, have that: Tey sparkle because they think a lot of themselves. He’s like that. And when you let him shine, he does.” Although Alazan did well enough in 2008 to finish tenth in the year-end Grand Prix standings, this past year Gribbons had so many judging and teaching engagements that she was surprised to learn her horse had shown enough to qualify for HoY consideration. For 2010, “i hope to get him out a little more.” She reflects, “When he’s warmed up and he really gets into his work, it’s as if he’s doing it for himself. of course, that only happens at 7:30 in the morning when we’re here all by ourselves! of all the Grand Prix tests we’ve had, maybe twice i’ve said, ‘oK, that was just like riding him on a really good morning at home.’ But whenever we go into the ring happy and come out happy, that’s a good day.”

S 1995 Pan American team silver medalist Anne Gribbons was visiting her native Sweden when an old friend, Swedish team chef d’équipe Bo Jenä, encouraged her to look at a six-year-old that had turned out to be “a lot of horse” for one of his students. “He could be very quick and had a tremendous buck in him. He was very smart, but he could also be very hot—and he was very, very opinionated.” Gribbons tried the horse “and really liked him from the beginning. And the more i rode him, the more i enjoyed him. He’s such a cheeky, smart, funny, talented horse.” She even liked his name, which means “chestnut” in Spanish— “but he’s not a Spanish horse; he’s a Swedish Warmblood, by a trakehner stallion that was ridden to Grand Prix by Kyra Kyrklund, and out of a good, sturdy Swedish mare.” Although Gribbons bought Alazan as a sales prospect, many people who watched them “would say, ‘You two look like you really belong together.’ And the more i rode him, the more i agreed. After about a year, which is what it takes to get a real relationship, i decided not to sell him. Since then, it’s been going from movement to movement, and clarity to clarity. And we like each other. i love to ride him, and he knows i love to ride him.” Because Alazan is “strong-minded,” one training challenge was convincing him “that some of these moves were necessary to do.” For example, “it took us three years to get the one-tempis right. He had no trouble with the other tempi changes, but we’d do two ones and then he would bolt. it was as if he couldn’t see the point, as if he was saying, ‘Make up your mind: left or right? And if you can’t, i’m outta here!’ i kept trying to tell him they were part of his job description, but he didn’t buy into it for the longest time.

required two live covers by the then-stallion: something “he’d probably never done in his life,” Yamazaki says. “it became a nightmare”—even with Peters spending time at the quarantine station to help him calm down. eventually, concluding that “‘well, we didn’t buy him to breed,’ we decided to geld him.” At Peters’s barn, Ravel began making steady progress. in 2008, he topped the US olympic dressage selection trials; in Hong Kong, he finished just 0.3 percent short of individual olympic bronze. Ten came 2009—when, Yamazaki says, “he surprised us by winning the Grand Prix at the World Dressage Masters, winning the World Cup in Las Vegas, and then pulling a hat trick in Aachen”: the first-ever US sweep of all three Grand Prix classes at that prestigious German show. For Peters, Ravel’s 2009 can be “a little hard to believe; sometimes i wake up and think i dreamed it all. So it’s neat that there’s proof on video.” But “what’s still one of the best moments i’ve had with him” happened earlier, in the first olympic qualifier. “i’d never shown him before, and this was a CDi; things were going well at home, so i’d said, ‘Why not? He feels great.’ And his first Grand Prix was a 70 percent. Tat was one of those wonderful moments where you think, ‘Tis could really be just as special as i thought.’” As for 2010, Peters is “very realistic; so are my coach”— wife Shannon Peters—“and Akiko and Jerry. And the world has never seen the quality of horses that are in the top five right now.” Te World equestrian Games are a goal, but “preserving Ravel is the priority. i will always show him, on any particular day, up to his potential. if he’s done his best and i’ve done the best i can, i would call the mission accomplished.”

he 2008 olympics were not quite two years away when, Akiko Yamazaki remembers, “my husband said, ‘Let’s ask Steffen to find a horse for us that would represent the US.’” Yamazaki had been riding with olympian Steffen Peters since 1998; “i love the clarity of his teaching and training principles.” Her husband, Yahoo cofounder Jerry Yang, wasn’t a horseman; but because the Games were “going to be in Beijing and he’s Chinese, he thought it would be neat to have a horse that would represent the US.” Finding such a horse “was a big responsibility,” Peters says; but one he felt able to meet. He headed to europe; in Holland, eight-year-old Ravel interested him immediately. “even in the warm-up, when he wasn’t asked for a lot of expression or collection, he showed a beautiful trot, and his canter quality was one of the finest i’d seen. Ten he showed a lot of talent for the lateral movements.” Te canter stride was so big that “it was a little difficult to do the two-tempis and one-tempis, but the ability for collection was there.” Yamazaki remembers that not only had the horse “not been out for a week”—most staff had been away at a show— but “there was scaffolding in the covered arena, with a man on it doing some work. Ravel went around without a blink, all business. i thought, ‘Wow, this is a horse with an amazing work ethic.’” Te next test was ridability—because, as Peters says, “a horse can move as big as he did but be difficult to sit, difficult to collect, even difficult to push forward. But none of the above was the case. So i knew after about five minutes that this was the horse.” over the next twelve days, the flying changes “got better and better, and i was one hundredpercent committed.” When Ravel arrived in the US, quarantine regulations

Dressage in the information Age Even in the age of high-tech, the basics prevail By Andrea M. Jones

A

s a kid, i read and daydreamed about horses. My school notebooks were covered with horse doodles and drawings. When i was thirteen, my parents bought me a horse, and riding and showing soon occupied my free time. A few years later, a new trainer introduced me to dressage, giving my passion a new focus. i loved the grace and beauty of the discipline. My ambition tended to outstrip our abilities, but i embraced

written information into cues aboard my horse. i learned what travers and renvers are, but when it came to riding the movements, i called my former trainer long distance and quizzed her over the phone. Te results were, predictably, poor. otherwise, i focused on basics: forward movement, smooth transitions, striving for precision. i rode without stirrups to deepen my seat and worked on executing accurate figures. When i left home, i tried boarding my horse, but the expense overwhelmed me and i sent him back to my dad’s place. i took some lessons, but spending an isolated hour now and then riding a strange horse was a world away from my ideal. With neither the facilities nor the finances to keep a horse, i began to shift all things equine to RURAL ROUTE: Te writer and her horse, Moondo the periphery of my life. i was still the ideals of connection and commuhorse-crazy and still wished to learn nication, of harmony and balance. dressage, but without a horse to ride, Tis was the early 1980s, and there i opted for avoidance. i didn’t read wasn’t much dressage going on in my books on riding or look at horse magacorner of southwestern Colorado. zines. Te thought of going to a horse When my trainer moved away, i was show—of being a spectator while other on my own at the age of seventeen. people rode—was unsatisfying and i’d managed to find a book on drespainful.

twenty-five years later, horses and dressage have finally entered my life again. new physical challenges—such as muscles that ache as they never did when i was a teen—are unpleasant but not surprising. Downright astonishing, however, is the wealth of dressage resources now at my disposal. Dressage trainers and instructors are everywhere, as are dressage shows and clinics. Bookshelves groan with lavishly illustrated volumes on every aspect of dressage equitation, conditioning, and training. Dressage videos and DVDs abound. Tere are specialized exercise programs for dressage riders and tack stores well-stocked with dressage tack and apparel. Te internet offers quick access to products, information, and chat opportunities. All this has, of course, been developing for years, but i feel as if i’ve stepped abruptly into a parallel universe. today, an overabundance of dressage information is its own challenge. i am tasked with sifting through all the opinions and perspectives offered to me as an aspiring dressage rider. Somewhat ironically, my past is my lodestar in navigating my way through this universe of dressage abundance. My good fortune is that i was introduced to the discipline by someone who valued fundamentals and classic principles. i now have a much richer understanding of biomechanics and dressage theory, but i find myself using the same strategies i relied on all those years ago: seeking forwardness, precision, and a proper seat. Having established connection and communication with my new horse, i’m now in pursuit of harmony and balance. i’m pleased to report that the combination of old basics and new insights has led us to a pretty fair travers and renvers. Te movements are all the more thrilling for having waited 25 years to execute them. s Book indexer and freelance writer Andrea Jones lives in the mountains of central Colorado with her husband, Doug Busch, and their horses, Moondo and Max.
