gone from renting office space to owning our own building. Te final payment on the USDF national education Center (neC) in Lexington, KY, was made last July—two years ahead of schedule. For that we owe a huge thank-you to those who donated to the capital campaign. Moving from leased office space to the neC has saved more than $600,000 over the past four to five years, and that savings includes the interest paid on the neC mortgage. A major change is in the wind regarding the USDF’s governance structure. For me this is one of the more exciting developments in the last few years. in 2010, we changed from a system of councils and committees to a new system of committees and councils. Sound confusing? it actually is quite simple: We took the old council and committee system and made every one a committee. Te committees are then grouped into one of three umbrella categories: Administrative, technical, and Activities. Te chairs of the committees within each of these three umbrella groups constitute a council. Te Administrative, technical, and Activities Councils each will have a representative (called an at-large director) on the executive Board. Tere will now be a total of sixteen executive Board members: four officers, nine regional directors, and three at-large directors.

VICE PRESIDENT

BETH JENKINS

A balanced budget and promising governance changes at the 2010 USDF convention

he 2010 Adequan/USDF national Convention and Symposium in Jacksonville, FL, was my first as president. i have to say that the executive Board, delegates, and staff made it much easier than i’d expected. to me, one of the beauties of the USDF is the opportunity for members to actually speak up and be heard, whether at the many committee meetings or at the Board of Governors (BoG) assembly. Tis year was no exception. in an effort to promote an exchange of ideas and a better understanding of the work being done by the committees and the programs they oversee, more committee meetings were open than ever before. in another first, prior to the convention, the executive Board sent the BoG delegates a series of e-mails about some of this year’s issues so that the delegates could be better informed. Te USDF convention is first and foremost a business meeting. in Jacksonville, USDF treasurer Steve Schubert presented the proposed budget to the BoG for approval. it is no secret that the slow economy is taking its toll; however, Steve, with the help of staff, put forward a balanced budget for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. We are looking at a slight decrease in expenses on the budget from the previous year. Te approved budget is posted on the USDF Web site at usdf.org/docs/about/about-usdf/ financials/2011-2012Budget.pdf. Since 2006, a couple of major changes have occurred that have had a positive impact on our budget. First, staff has been trimmed. i believe our staff deserves kudos for being able to maintain the same quality of programs with fewer people; they have worked hard to make this happen. Second, we have

US. He thought it unacceptable that dressage instructors in this country were not subject to the kinds of training and licensing that have long been standard practice in europe, and his dream was to establish a similar program in America. We profiled Major Lindgren for this magazine around the time of his Hall of Fame induction, and again a few years later. He was thrilled with the attention and gratified at the number of former students who reached out, through letters to the editor, internet postings, or direct communiqués with him, to say what an influence he’d had on their riding, training, and teaching. He began corresponding with me occasionally, sending his thoughts on the latest dressage championships or training issue and always expressing satisfaction that people remembered him, even in the twilight of his life. i was initially surprised at his fear that he’d be forgotten, but then i began to understand it, especially in our modern world of endless fascination with the next big thing. But i feel confident in stating that Major Lindgren will not be forgotten. Tis is my final correspondence with him: Major Lindgren, if you know i’m writing to you, please know that i remember you, that i have your book and kept your letters, that i and a lot of other people feel privileged to have known and learned from you, and that we’re working to keep your dreams alive.

everal bittersweet lessons about learning, life, and legacies converged at the 2010 Adequan/ USDF national Convention and Symposium in Jacksonville, FL, in December. First, i was as excited as all getout about the symposium, featuring well-known judges and trainers Gary Rockwell and Lilo Fore (for my report on the event, turn to page 36). i hadn’t had the pleasure of learning from Gary, but several years ago i had the good fortune to sit next to Lilo at a USDF symposium at DevonWood equestrian Centre, near Portland, oR. Confused about something, i asked Lilo about it—and she was off to the races, patiently (and seemingly happily) explaining all manner of things simply and articulately. i could hardly write fast enough to keep up with the pearls of wisdom. toward the end of the event, i think i blurted out: “Why don’t you give a symposium?” Te response, if i remember correctly, was that nobody had asked her. Well, somebody finally asked her, and Lilo and Gary did a superb job of blending the trainer’s and the judge’s perspectives on preparing for and riding the new 2011 USDF and US equestrian Federation dressage tests, introductory through Fourth Level. if you ever get a chance to watch one or both of these pros teach, don’t miss it. Te bittersweet part came when, just hours after i arrived in Jacksonville, i learned that 2003 Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame inductee Major Anders Lindgren had died at his home in Sweden (obituary, page 16). Major Lindgren was a driving force behind the development of USDF symposia, trainers’ Conferences, and the instructor/trainer Certification Program. For a decade, he was the primary teacher of dressage instructors in the

Time To NomiNaTe CaNdidaTes April 15, 2011 is the deadline for nominations for: Participating Member (PM) Delegates in All Regions To accept the nomination, and if elected, a PM delegate nominee must: • Be a current Participating Member of USDF. • Currently reside in the region for which they are running as a candidate. • Agree to serve a one year term, from the time of election in 2011 until the election in 2012. • Attend the 2011 USDF convention.

At the 2009 convention, the BoG approved the concept of adding three more individuals to the executive Board. in 2010, the BoG had the opportunity to decide how those individuals will be selected. After much discussion, the BoG approved a motion requiring the BoG to vote on the candidates for the three at-large director positions. From my early days as a council chair i have felt strongly that we needed a better line of communication between committee chairs and the executive Board. Tis new system should help to improve the connection. After all, the majority of the work of USDF is done by committees; they deserve to have board representation. As most of you know by now, we had officer and regional-director elections during the 2010 BoG, as well. Te battle for vice president was hard fought by three very dedicated and qualified individuals. We welcome

Lisa Schmidt is the new Region 1 director, Heather Petersen is the new Region 5 director, terry Wilson was reelected as Region 7 director, and Bess Reineman was reelected in Region 9. Several candidates ran unopposed, including Janine Malone (nC), who was reelected as treasurer. Welcome to our new board members and a sad goodbye to our retiring directors, Region 3’s Sandi Bishop and Region 5’s Teresa Hunt, who have been wonderful to work with. A big hug and thank you are in order for Melissa Creswick, who stepped in as the interim vice president in 2010. other issues that came before the BoG in Jacksonville were motions from the USDF Awards Committee effectively allowing a horse to be eligible to be ranked in the final year-end standings for most

Tis year, the instructor Certification Strategic Planning Group, chaired by Kathy Connelly, met as well. i am looking forward to the group’s report and recommendations for moving this vital program forward. Te executive Board meets twice during the convention. in an effort to improve communications, there were two historic firsts in Jacksonville: a meeting of the executive Board with the chairs of the USDF committees, and a meeting of the board with the US equestrian Federation Dressage Committee, which makes the rules for USeF-licensed dressage competition. Both meetings were productive. i hope that they herald the start of a new era—for if we are to continue to grow and improve our sport, we must work together more than ever before. s

i am an adult amateur who has shown my non-warmblood horse before countless judges over the last seven years. During the 2009-2010 competition year, i rode Second Level for the second year in order to firm up basics. Unfortunately, what earned scores of 6, 7, or 8 last year earned scores of 5 and 6 this year. i wonder if others have noticed this trend toward harsher judging. My horse was more “through” and round this competition year than last. With only a few exceptions, that improvement was not rewarded. Tere are a few judges left who are not afraid to reward a really good halt or a big, swingy walk with an 8 or a 9. if i do choose to renew and show this year, i will be sure to ride for the judges who respect and show appreciation for the positive parts of our tests. Sadly, there are judges for whom i will never ride again, as it’s a waste of time and money. it is my hope that judges realize the challenges and expense of showing

On Judges and Judging in response to a USDF member’s question about showing in front of a judge against whom she also competes, judge elizabeth Madlener advised, “[i]f... you cannot trust a particular judge, then be sure not to ride for that judge” (“Te Judge’s Box,” october). Judging people you compete against is undoubtedly a conflict of interest. i believe many of the difficulties this country is having stem from a lack of guidelines and a “buyer beware” attitude. it is a disservice to put our hardworking judges in temptation’s way where their values could be questioned. As much as i dislike overregulation, if guidelines aren’t in place, perhaps we should develop some. Mary Farr St. Johns, FL i am hesitating to renew my GMo, USDF, and US equestrian Federation memberships for the first time in many years.

Another Suggestion for Horseless Riders As a rider between mounts, i was eager to read Sally Silverman’s “out of the Saddle but Still in the Game” (november). While all her suggestions were good and ones i have incorporated during my own down time, in my opinion she missed the most important one: lunge lessons. i can’t imagine there is a rider out there, regardless of skill level, who would not reap the benefits of getting back to basics. Golfers speak of this all the time. Staying fit by working out is great but is no substitute for riding, and “catch riding” isn’t for every rider (or horse). Focusing on yourself while someone else controls the horse is the best of both worlds and is a wonderful opportunity few riders take advantage of. Jayne Nessif Woodbine, MD You’re right, Jayne, and we have an article on this very subject in the works.

As a lower-level dressage competitor and a scientist (retired pediatric orthopedic surgeon), i commend the statistical attempt and effort of the authors to lend some science to dressage judging in their recent article (“A Statistical Look at Dressage Competition,” november). i do, however, have some concerns, especially having been a reviewer for a number of medical journals. of the 45,413 rides reviewed, 27,973 (61.5 percent) were on warmbloods. Terefore, although there were eight other breed categories listed, the majority of the horses were warmbloods, especially as compared to each breed category individually. Tus, the conclusion that warmbloods are not, in fact, favored is probably erroneous.


Ulbert 390 SportK Sierk 326 x Leffert 306 Preferent

Ulbert 390 is an outstanding example of the modern dressage-type Friesian. He has won through Prix St. Georges with scores above 68%. Ulbert is Approved on offspring and has sired an Approved stallion, Maurits 437. Ulbert has three impressive gaits that exhibit reach and power. He is intelligent, willing and very trainable—traits he passes on to his offspring.

Meinse is winning through 2nd level with numerous high point awards and USDF Championships. He comes from an important mare line and his sire produced three Approved stallions. Meinse’s young sons and daughters are inheriting his movement, balance and winning disposition.

member connection it would be interesting to look at breed versus level, as i’m quite sure that warmbloods would predominate at the upper levels. it might also be revealing to look at experienced (i am not sure exactly how you would decide this) versus inexperienced judges and at intra- versus interobserver differences. Debbie Stanitski, MD Kiawah Island, SC

www.SmartPak.com | 1-800-431-3916

Te statisticians respond: Debbie, those are very good questions. Regarding the breed prevalence, while keeping in mind that some horses contributed multiple scores to those analyzed, the preference for showing horses from warmblood breeds does represent a self-selection process by the riders. Tis is most likely the result of riders’ intuitive understanding of the tendency for warmbloods to earn higher scores. We did a more detailed analysis of the breed-level scoring in the 2008 edition of our research. A copy of that paper is available on the Potomac Valley Dressage Association’s Web site (pvda.org/Documents/Forms/ Allitems.aspx; scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “USDF Score Analysis”). A summary of the breedlevel analysis shows the following: • Te “warmblood advantage” exists through First Level • iberian breeds (Andalusian, Lusitano, and PRe) were competitive with warmbloods at Second Level and above • Quarter Horse average scores were lower than all other breeds until the Fei levels • Arabian, Morgan, Toroughbred, Paint, and Quarter Horse breeds all score below iberians and warmbloods. Te goal of this section of the analysis was to confirm or deny the popular belief that warmbloods score so much higher than non-warmblood breeds that riders of non-warmbloods feel discouraged or slighted in the show ring. With the data showing a 2.5-percentage-point difference in

14 February 2011 • USDF ConneCtion

editorial@usdf.org

average scores across all levels, riders of non-warmblood breeds should feel heartened that their horses can compete favorably. And it will be interesting to rerun this analysis with scores from the new 2011 editions of the USeF tests, in which the gait coefficient is no longer a factor. As you also pointed out, there are many more layers of analysis that could be done with the available data: a more detailed look at success by breed versus level by region is one, as are several possible questions about judging. intra- and inter-rater reliability and reproducibility is a topic on which we are currently working. Te relationship of judge-training level and years of judging experience to reliability and reproducibility is another topic that we would like to explore, but these data are much harder to gather and would require active participation from the USDF and the USeF to grant access. Te results of this analysis could form an excellent basis for discussions in judges’ seminars and the USDF “L” program. Developing baseline data on the correlations between judge training and scoring consistency would help the dressage community to assess the effectiveness of the various judgetraining programs. We believe that there is a wealth of information contained “in the numbers” that can help riders, trainers, breeders, judges, show managers, and the USDF to understand what is happening nationwide in the sport of dressage. s

Maj. anders Lindgren

S

wedish olympian Major Anders Lindgren, who was inducted into the Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame in 2003, died in Sweden in late november at the age of

85.

Te accomplished horseman and trainer, who was a former Swedish national dressage champion, Scandinavian eventing champion, and member of the 1972 Swedish olympic dressage team, had a profound influence on American dressage and on programs offered by the USDF. in 1981, Swedish Col. Aage Sommer brought Maj. Lindgren to Violet Hopkins’ tristan oaks Farm in Michigan to teach at the inaugural USDF national instructors Seminar. For the next decade, Maj. Lindgren led the Hopkins seminars, as they were called. He also brought such luminaries as “o” judge eric Lette and olympian Kyra Kyrklund to teach at USDF national symposia, which evolved out of the instructor seminars.

t

he Fédération Equestre Internationale (Fei) held its 2010 convention, called the Fei General Assembly (GA), november 1-5 in Chinese taipei. With several significant proposed rule changes and a presidential election on the agenda, it was an important meeting.

SPREADING HIS KNOWLEDGE: Maj. Anders Lindgren shows American dressage trainers how it’s done at a 1985 Hopkins seminar

His students loved Maj. Lindgren’s systematic, structured approach to dressage training. Tey took to heart his favorite sayings, among them “t, t, t. Mind these three: Tings take time.” Tey treasured his virtual encyclopedia of training exercises, many of which incorporated traffic cones. in 1998, Half Halt Press finally persuaded the master to set down his exercises for posterity and published Major Anders Lindgren’s Teaching Exercises. A passionate advocate for dressage-instructor education and certification, Maj. Lindgren was an early proponent of a certification program for American instructors and encouraged the USDF to develop such a program as a next step from the seminars and symposia. With Maj. Lindgren’s help in establishing a curriculum, the USDF instructor Certification Program launched in 1990. Maj. Lindgren is survived by his wife, Puci.

Dressage rule changes. Fei dressage judging has undergone several revisions. Previously, “stars” (e.g., 4*, 5*) had replaced the letter-designation system of signifying judge credentials (e.g., “i,” “o”). At the 2010 GA, a new 2* category was created. two-star judges may judge the small tour (Prix St. Georges and intermediate i) and may later progress to become 3* judges. Criteria for becoming and remaining an Fei-licensed judge have been made stricter, as well. every judge must now complete a refresher course at least every three years. Te latest Fei dressage and para-equestrian dressage rules took effect January 1 and are online at fei.org. 2012 olympic games. As required for the 2012 olympics competition format, an alternative, shorter Grand Prix Special test was introduced on January 1. Te two-minute reduction is necessary to fulfill the international olympic Committee’s requirement to keep the same time frame as in the 2008 Games and to allow a total of 32 horses (seven teams and eleven individuals) to take part in the competition. Tis format will not be used at other Fei championships. hRh Princess haya reelected. HRH Princess Haya Al Hussein of Jordan was reelected to her second and final term as Fei president. She won in a landslide victory over Fei first vice president Sven Holmberg of Sweden and former netherlands equestrian Federation VP Henk Rottinghuis.

Te clinicians explained how to evaluate the gaits, with consistent rhythm, correct placement, and activity paramount. Wysocki explained, “in the walk, you should see a clear ‘V’ on both sides. Te front foot should wait for the hind foot.” More expressive, ground-covering gaits may have a “wow factor” that leads to higher scores—but as Wysocki cautioned, “it has to be pure before the wow.” Participants evaluated a range of sport-horse types, from Hanoverians and oldenburgs to such breeds as Paint, Toroughbred, and Friesian. Tey also learned how to present a horse on the triangle as is done in in-hand sport-horse classes. to teach the aspiring sport-horse judges how to formulate comments, Wysocki and Solyntjes had them describe each horse out loud. “Tey presented a good perspective into the comments,” said participant Sean Cunningham, an Albuquerque-based trainer and competitor. “We learned about constructive, rather than deconstructive, comments.” —Charlene Strickland

First Place, General-Interest Article Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine in Horses By Scott Hopper, DVM, MS, DACVS

R

egenerative cell medicine and the use of stem cells in treating horses have become more popular over the last few years. Tere are news stories of stem cell research and stem cell therapy in both human and veterinary medicine constantly. Anecdotal stories of horses being treated successfully with stem cells often make national news. Despite all the positive press and excitement for stem cell therapy there is still very little science currently available. in this article i will discuss what a stem cell is, where they come from and the science supporting the use of stem cells in equine medicine. Stem Cell Basics Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to replicate and differentiate into a diverse range of cell types. Tese cell types include tendon, ligament, cartilage, muscle and bone. Tere are two basic types of stem cells:

hematopoietic and mesenchymal. We are primarily concerned with mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) because they appear to have the best potential for regenerative medicine. Tese MSC are found in bone marrow, fat, umbilical cord blood and umbilical cord tissue, and many other organs throughout the body. Te younger or more immature the stem cell, the more potential they have. Te younger stem cells have an increased ability to heal and regenerate tissue compared to the adult stem cells. Tis is the reason for the recent interest in storing umbilical cord blood in horses. Umbilical Cord Blood Te ability to successfully harvest equine umbilical cord blood for future use is one of the most recent advances. Te University of California-Davis recently published that they were able to collect, store and expand MSC to therapeutic doses in 80 percent of the cases. if there was greater than 21,000 nucleated cells per microliter harvested from the cord blood, then 91 percent of the cases yielded an adequate number of MSC. Tis is the best result harvesting MSC from cord blood reported to date. Cord blood allows us to harvest the most immature and possibly a more potent stem cell with a better potential to differentiate into the tissue we desire. An example of this was recently reported where the University of Copenhagen evaluated the chondrogenic potential (ability to produce cartilage) in MSC derived from both bone marrow and umbilical cord blood. Research showed that MSCs from both sources were able to produce hyaline like cartilage but MSC from umbilical cord blood had an increased chondrogenic potential based upon certain testing parameters. Tere are a few companies

24 February 2011 • USDF ConneCtion

editorial@usdf.org

offering umbilical cord blood storage. it is important to ask what the stem cell viability rate is from their type of processing and cryostorage. Another important question is, can the cord blood be cultured and expanded to a therapeutic dose at the same facility. Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells Bone marrow derived MSC can be harvested from the sternum or the tuber coxae (hip). Te procedure is done standing under sedation. Te bone marrow is then processed and the MSC are cultured and expanded to approximately ten million cells. Tis process takes approximately three weeks. Te cells are then suspended in bone marrow supernatant or saline and injected ultrasonographically into the tendon or ligament lesion or in the joint. Consensus among researchers is that the sooner a horse is treated the better. Chronic tendon or ligament injuries have already formed scar tissue which increases the chances of reinjury. Stem cell therapy cannot remove scar tissue. Te goal is to treat injuries within the first 30 days if possible. tendon and ligament injuries are currently the most common injuries being treated with stem cell therapy. Te majority of the research has been of injuries involving the superficial digital flexor tendon. Dr. Roger Smith in the UK has shown an 82 percent success rate in national Hunt horses, 87 percent success in other sport horses but only 50 percent success in flat racing horses. Research evaluating the use of stem cells in deep digital flexor tendon injuries and suspensory ligament injures is currently ongoing. Researchers are also evaluating the use of stem cells in treating degenerative joint disease. Research in goats has shown that stifles treated with stem cells had less arthritic change than controls. Tis research is currently being done in horses. A recent paper from the University of Colorado reported that based upon several factors stem cells could not be recommended for osteoarthritis of the middle carpal joint in horses. even


though a greater response was seen with bone marrow derived stem cells compared to adipose (fat) derived stem cells and controls, the changes were not statistically significant. Adipose Derived Stem Cells Adipose or fat derived stem cell therapy is available from the VetStem Company. Fat is harvested from the either side of the tail head in the standing sedated horse. Te fat is processed and returned in 48 hours. even though this therapy has had some success the exact composition and number of actual stem cells in the fluid returned for injection is not known. Te biggest advantage of this therapy is that you can treat the injury quicker. early studies have shown that the capability of the bone marrow derived stem cells are superior to the adipose derived cells. Te Future Potential uses for stem cells in the future include fracture healing, subchondral bone cysts, laminitis and cartilage repair. Tere is much we do not know about stem cell therapy. We are still looking for answers to the following questions: 1. What injuries are best treated with stem cells? 2. How many stem cells do we need? 3. Do stem cells need to be triggered to produce the desired result? 4. How important are growth factors? 5. What is the best type of stem cells to be used? Stem cell therapy is an exciting new area of treatment for equine injuries. Although there is still much we still need to learn, early research is very encouraging. Current ongoing research will begin to offer answers and to shed some light on the best applications and techniques for the use of stem cell therapy. Te goal of the Rood & Riddle Stem Cell Laboratory is to provide this exciting new treatment to our clients and referring veterinarians. our collaboration with the University California-Da-

club connection Championship in Maryland. in 2004, her horse Windfall CB was named USDF Horse of the Year at intermediate i. in 2005, Charlotte and Komo won the USDF regional championship at Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle. in 2006, Komo qualified in the top twelve for Gladstone at Grand Prix. Her philosophy in training and instructing is derived from working with Herbert Rehbein, Conrad Schumacher, Robert Dover, Hilda Gurney and Guenter Seidel.

i found Charlotte a quiet person, very humble and almost unassuming. But boy could she assess a horse’s strengths and weaknesses in a few minutes of watching! She had my attention and respect within a few minutes of the onset of the clinic. With all the riders, she worked almost the same exercises to initiate collection. As you may recall, collection is when the horse lowers and engages his hindquarters—shortening and narrowing his base of support, re-

sulting in lightness and mobility of the forehand. With the lower level horses, most of the exercises were performed at a walk and trot and with the higher level horses, the exercises were performed at a trot and canter. As Charlotte emphasized to her audience, if the horse cannot stay supple in the walk or trot, there is no sense moving on to the canter. Charlotte routinely worked all the participants in shoulder-in and haunches-in to improve the horse’s

flexibility both along the wall and on the quarter line. She also schooled us in shoulder-in to a leg-yield or shoulder-in to a half-pass at the walk, trot and canter to increase the horse’s flexibility. Leg-yields at the canter, she told us, are very useful to strengthen the horse’s inside hind. When she had us practice a turn on the haunches, she had the rider move the horse two steps sideways using the outside leg and rein and then, take two steps forward and repeat the two steps sideways and two steps forward until a complete rotation is achieved. Tis schooled the horse in keeping his inside hind leg under his body and crossing in front of the outside hind leg. i found this exercise especially helpful since my turn of the haunches has always been a sticking point with one of Pilot’s hind legs often stepping out. Tis exercise prevents that issue from happening. Some of her other tips were to always position the horse in a shoulder-fore when performing the medium canter and when performing the extended trot, think passage before the collected trot transition. Te other exercise that i found very helpful was performing flying changes on a large oval. When starting tempi changes, Charlotte noted that the rider should not worry about the count, instead, concentrate on getting the horse relaxed before any flying change aid. She had me ride down the long side of the arena going to the right at a canter keeping Pilot supple and relaxed, then, she asked me to try for a bit of leg-yield to the right and ask for the change with my left leg. She had me stay in the counter-canter, ask for a bit of leg-yield to the left and cue the change with my right leg. next, Charlotte had me perform another flying change down the next long side to the counter-canter and change to the correct lead at the short side. She had me continue one change on each side of the oval until Pilot completely relaxed with the exercise and then, she had me add two or three changes down the long side, only making the change when Pilot was completely relaxed. For preparation for the canter pirouettes,

she asked us to collect the canter and exaggerate the bend. Ten, she had me add the haunches-in and take three steps forward and three steps turning. i have continued to use her exercises on a routine basis and have found that Pilot’s flexibility and suppleness are improving and the tempi changes are also becoming more relaxed. if you haven’t attended or participated as a demonstration rider at a USDF Adult Clinic, i urge you to attend. You will gain a lot of knowledge from

some great clinicians as well as some good insights from the auditors. Te atmosphere is one of learning and education and not criticism, so don’t be intimidated by the audience or the instructor—apply as a demonstration rider at the next Region 1 Adult Clinic! i’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Cheryl Ash and the funds i received from the Hillside equestrian Grant since this money was used to partially pay for my participation in this wonderful clinic. s

Secret Grooming Passions By elizabeth Coffey Curle it all started out so innocently. “Hey Mom, can i body-clip Chevy?” i should have blocked out those idyllic images flashing through my head. Her horse, my horses, all professionally body-clipped, manes pulled; gleaming show horses in every stall. i let the lure of someone else covered in horsehair, someone else’s knees and arms aching, block out all sense of realism. “Sure, let me get you started,” i re-

plied, hurdling the wheelbarrow positioned between me and the cross-ties. it was such an innocuous beginning, those first few strokes of the clippers neatly removing Chevy’s neck hair. i gave out all the typical bodyclipping instructions, all while visions of beautifully body-clipped horses danced in my head. oh, how naïve. no sugar-plum fairies came to the rescue. Somewhere “follow the path of your last line” got lost to a game of tic-tac-toe and my daughter signing her name across Chevy’s barrel. i like to think i was tricked the

Symposium connects training to showing By JenniFer o. Bryant PhotograPhS By JenniFer o. Bryant anD BrUCe Lawrie

TEAM APPROACH: Oral judging followed by training work made for a sophisticated “ride a test” symposium format

36 February 2011 • USDF ConneCtion


t

oo many dressage riders believe, mistakenly, that training is one thing and showing is another. Tey may either eschew competition altogether or drill test movements without a big-picture training structure. in the 2010 adequan/USDF national Dressage Symposium in Jacksonville, FL, a dynamic duo of trainers/riders/ judges dispelled that notion and connected the dots between the schooling and the show ring. Lilo Fore, of Santa rosa, Ca, is an Fei “i” dressage judge and a USDF certification examiner. She is also an Fei “C” para-equestrian dressage judge and a USeF “r” sport-horse judge. She is an experienced and successful breeder, trainer, instructor, and competitor. gary rockwell, of wellington, FL, is an Fei “o” judge and a faculty member of the USDF “L” education Program. he is a 1994 world equestrian games dressage team bronze medalist. as a judge, he has officiated at numerous important competitions, including the 2008 olympic games and the 2010 Fei Dressage world Cup Final.

The Format Troughout the December 4-5 symposium, held at the sixyear-old Jacksonville equestrian Center, Fore played the role of instructor/trainer while rockwell handled the judging duties. Demonstration riders allowed their mounts to get accustomed to the atmosphere in the spacious indoor arena while Fore offered a few preliminary comments. Ten the demo pair rode its designated USDF or US equestrian Federation test (introductory through Fourth Levels) while rockwell judged, microphone in hand, so the spectators got a running commentary of scores, comments, and collective marks. after the first test run-through, it was training time. Fore coached each rider and horse through a few exercises chosen to address the test’s weak points, with rockwell adding his perspectives and observations. Finally, if Fore thought it appropriate and not too much for the horse, she had the pair repeat the test—to universal improvement and higher scores.

The Tests: Road Maps to Success Te new 2011 USDF and US equestrian Federation (USeF) dressage tests took effect December 1, 2010. Te new USeF tests in particular have drawn a lot of buzz. For one, all levels now include only three tests instead of the four previously written for training through Second Levels. and the old rider-position/use-of-aids collective mark now encompasses three collectives: rider position, effectiveness of aids, and harmony between rider and horse, the latter having USDF ConneCtion

been extracted from the mark for submission. Te additional rider collectives, obviously, emphasize the importance of the rider in influencing the horse and ensuring a happy and comfortable equine partner; they also serve to deemphasize the collective mark for gaits, thereby (it is hoped) helping to level the competitive playing field among extravagant and nice-but-nothing-spectacular movers. For many in the audience of 330, this was undoubtedly the first time they’d seen the new tests ridden. Most rode smoothly and well—except for Fourth Level test 3, which prompted rockwell to comment, “wow, this is easier?” (Fourth Level supposedly having been reworked to serve as a proper stepping stone to Prix St. georges), and to observe that the test contains some “illogical turns,” such as a shoulder-in to a circle in the opposite direction of the bend. For a detailed look at the test changes, see “Preview: Te new Dressage tests” by USeF Dressage Committee member and Fei “o” judge axel Steiner (november 2010).

two of the major “bridges” between training and showing are the stated purpose of each test and the directive ideas for each numbered movement, both of which are printed on the test sheets. Do you know, for example, what you’re trying to accomplish in the training Level work? you would if you read the tests’ purpose: “to confirm that the horse is supple and moves freely forward in a clear and steady rhythm, accepting contact with the bit.” Keep the purpose (which coincides with the USDF pyramid of training) in mind as you train and you’ll be better able to answer the questions, “how is my horse doing?” and “is he ready to show this level?” Likewise, printed on the test sheet beside each movement are the directive ideas, which are the major criteria judges use in evaluating that movement. For example, movement 10 in training Level test 1 is a 20-meter circle in trot. Te directives for that movement are “quality of trot; shape and size of circle; bend.” So here, spelled out for the competitor, are the three major criteria for a high score. Te quality of the trot is paramount, so even if your circle is protractor-accurate, it probably won’t score too well if the trot lacks a clear and steady rhythm. Slightly less critical is the geometry, but you’d kick yourself if you knew you lost precious points over figure accuracy. Finally, you’ll also lose points for showing either zero bend or a misaligned poll-totail outline on the circle.

Introductory Level

THE TEAM: Audience Q&A liaison Jeanne McDonald, clinicians Gary Rockwell and Lilo Fore, and scribe Lois Yukins

38 February 2011 • USDF ConneCtion

Tis USDF level is designed to let green horses and novice riders dip their toes into the dressage-competition waters. Te tests are simple and straightforward. intro tests a and B are walk-trot only, and test C adds canter. as Fore pointed out, one collective mark is for geometry and accuracy. “you will get bonus points for accuracy, but exact accuracy is not expected at this level,” she said.


Quick Quote: Lilo Fore An empty rein is not light; an empty rein is no contact.

with intro B/C demonstration rider Leah winston on the Lusitano stallion amintas interagro, the clinicians showed how little details can make a big difference in training. in her tests, rockwell said, the rider “needs to make fewer corrections with her fingers” and to ride to a “stable, steady connection.” Fore agreed, pointing out that the sensitive stallion disliked the unsteadiness: “an open hand makes you fiddle with your fingers, and that is what makes him drop the contact.” She instructed winston to hold the reins in a closed fist instead of in partially opened fingers: “a closed fist can feel the horse; an open hand can only pull.” rockwell explained that a goal of dressage training is to make the horse happy to seek a steady, elastic contact with the bit. “on the bit should be a comfortable place to be,” he said.

HAPPY ATHLETE: QH cross My Royal Legend, ridden by Lynn Palm, earned praise for his pleasing attitude

Training Level if intro Level is like preschool, then training Level is like kindergarten. Judges want to see the new-to-dressage horse on the bit and exhibiting steadiness, suppleness, and a desire to go forward; but they tend to be forgiving of momentary losses of balance and occasional “green moments.” horse and rider must always think forward. as Fore explained to demo rider Katie Stoy on the five-year-old trakehner mare Snapee Dressur, “even a downward transition is a forward thought process. Tink shifting gears, not ‘stop.’” Te training Level test 2 demo horse, My royal Legend, a Quarter horse cross ridden by Lynn Palm, impressed the clinicians with his bright, happy attitude and enthusiasm for his work. Fore and rockwell also liked Palm’s quiet way of riding, with rockwell especially pleased with her “invisible hands.” Fore challenged Palm, a many-times-over american Quarter horse association champion (see “Celebrity Demo rider” on page 42), to strive for more consistency in the transitions and for better forward-downward reach in the stretching-circle exercise. as Fore pointed out, “it’s always easier to ask the rider to do more than to do less.” with training 3 demo pair Michelle Folden and the four-year-old Danish mare rania, rockwell emphasized the importance of a correct hand position in establishing relaxation and stretch. a too-high hand makes the horse shorten through the poll area, Fore agreed. [

Quick Quote: Lilo Fore When you give in front, “fill the box” from behind.

“Te golfer tom watson once said something like: ‘you can have immediate success in golf if you place your hands correctly on the club from the beginning,’” rockwell said.

First Level Te move up to First Level calls for the horse to show “the thrust to achieve improved balance and throughness and to maintain a more consistent contact with the bit,” according to the USeF tests’ stated purpose. Trust (impulsion) requires energy—that feeling that the horse is “taking you,” not in a rushed or out-of-control way but in a positive forward manner, like that of a smoothly flowing current in a stream. of First Level test 2, Fore said: “Tis is the first test where we move the horse sideways,” in leg-yield. as Lynn Palm demonstrated on the Quarter horse stallion Larks home run, “Te horse must not lose the desire to go forward when he goes sideways,” Fore said. Fore instructed

Quick Quote: Gary Rockwell In dressage, “forward” means “into the direction of the bit.” Although some trainers and judges use the phrase “needs to be more forward,” a more accurate statement would be “needs more energy.”

TURN ON THE HAUNCHES: Susanne Benne practices the movement aboard Ensign

Palm: “Use your seat to entice this little man to make his stride a little longer. i want him more active, not quicker.” rockwell pointed out that no bend is required in legyield, merely a bit of flexion such that the rider can just see the horse’s inside eye (e.g., the left eye when leg-yielding right, away from the rider’s left leg).

Second Level Day two of the USDF symposium began with Second Level. it was a fitting place to start because Second Level introduces collection, defined as the horse’s acceptance of more weight on his hindquarters, thereby causing him to move in more of an “uphill” balance. Second Level test 1 introduces the shoulder-in, which is arguably the single most important gymnastic exercise in the dressage repertoire. to execute the shoulder-in, the simple change (a change of canter lead through the walk), and other Second Level movements well, the horse needs a demonstrated degree of balance, strength, and lateral suppleness.

rockwell and Fore thought Piper, an eight-year-old american warmblood mare ridden by Jill allard, needed more topline strength and throughness to master Second Level test 1. rockwell, who by now had shown himself to be a stickler for quiet hands and a steady contact, cautioned allard: “any kind of bit manipulation to keep a horse round and you’ll always have to do it.” Develop true lateral suppleness, he said, and “you’ll create a situation where you don’t have to do that [fiddle with the bit] to keep the horse round.” with Second Level test 2 demo pair Susanne Benne and her seven-year-old oldenburg gelding, ensign, the clinicians focused on the walk work. addressing some horses’ tendency to develop a lateral (pacing) walk, Fore advised interspersing frequent lateral exercises, as horses very rarely show a lateral walk therein. one new movement at test 2 is the turn on the haunches, performed along the rail. “Don’t make more than a 180-degree turn to get back to the track,” rockwell cautioned, as doing so exceeds the prescribed difficulty of the movement. Fore offered a helpful image in riding the turn on the haunches: “Tink of a door turning on its hinges. Te door (the horse’s shoulders) turns, but the hinges (the hindquarters) don’t go very far.”

Celebrity Demo Rider

S

ome of those at the 2010 Adequan/USDF National Symposium may have been unaware that one of the demonstration riders is downright famous. Ocala, FL,-based Lynn Palm is a legend in the Quarter Horse world as the trainer and rider of American Quarter Horse Association Superhorse Rugged Lark, whose bridleless demonstrations at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and other major events thrilled thousands. She has won numerous AQHA world-championship titles and other honors. Palm is a staple of equine expos and a popular clinician.

Quick Quote: Gary Rockwell When I compete, I stay very close to the arena before the bell rings. Don’t ride so far away that your horse might spy something else to spook at. I get the horse working close to the ring so that he sees the flowers and other decorations; then, when we go in the ring, there are no new surprises.

in their test, ensign did an unasked-for flying change in the counter-canter. Benne had him change back, which unfortunately led to a third change and a few disorganized moments. as Fore pointed out afterward, Second Level does not include flying changes; therefore, a better correction would have been a simple change: walk and then pick up the desired lead.

Third Level as Fore and rockwell pointed out, at USeF-licensed dressage competitions, the snaffle bridle is now optional from Tird Level all the way through grand Prix. (Te double bridle is still required at the Fei levels in CDis.) Tird Level introduces extended gaits, trot half-pass, and single flying changes. Tese increased demands require

an even greater degree of straightness, balance, suppleness, and self-carriage than at the lower levels. to help achieve these goals, Fore said, “i train a fractional shoulder-fore, no matter what. By shoulder-fore i mean bringing the shoulder half a hoofprint to the inside, because a horse’s shoulders are narrower than his haunches.” however, in the show ring, “Te highest score is when the horse shows absolute straightness,” rockwell said. a common fault in the Tird Level trot and canter halfpasses, said rockwell, is too much sideways and not enough engagement, because horses find the former easier than the latter. “too much sideways creates flattening” and a loss of bend, he said.

Quick Quote: Lilo Fore Many riders forget to ride the horse during their dressage tests. They focus on the movements and forget to ride the walk, trot, and canter.

“in the half-pass, feel as if you put the haunches underneath you,” Fore advised demo rider Debbie hill on the seven-year-old hanoverian mare river Side Lady.

on her second mount, Baylea, a seven-year-old hanoverian mare, rider Susanne Benne demonstrated Fourth Level test 1. Te talented mare earned praise from the clinicians, who cautioned the rider not to inadvertently disrupt her horse’s balance. rockwell said that tall riders like Benne must take care not to unduly affect their horses. “Very tall riders need to be careful because their influence is exaggerated,” he said. “if they lean back, they create leverage.” Te final demonstration pair of the symposium, Dana Fiore on her nine-year-old hanoverian gelding, redford, rode Fourth Level tests 2 and 3. to improve redford’s pirouettes, Fore had Fiore ride increasingly challenging versions of a triangle exercise.

3 THE TRIANGLE: Dana Fiore on Redford practice a version of Lilo Fore’s triangle exercise for improving pirouettes. From the corner, they canter toward X (1). Before X, they walk (2) and then make a pirouette turn toward the opposite corner (3) and (4). Tey walk forward and pick up the canter again (5).


Quick Quote: Lilo Fore In the canter, the rider’s inside hip is a fraction forward and the outside hip is a fraction back in order to keep the horse cantering correctly and straight.

Beginning in the walk, Fiore rode from one corner of the arena toward X. She shortened the steps and rode a pirouette quarter-turn toward the opposite corner, then straightened and walked forward. Later, Fore increased the difficulty by having Fiore canter through the corner, then walk before X, turn, walk out, and pick up the canter again, as shown in the photo sequence on the opposite page. next variation: canter in, canter pirouette turn, canter out, then walk. Finally, Fore had Fiore canter in, walk and begin the pirouette turn, then pick up the canter during the turn for a greater strength-and-collection challenge. Te result was a better quality of canter and better balance before and after the pirouettes.

From ‘C’ to Shining ‘C’ as Fore and rockwell had hoped, their symposium went a long way toward dispelling the notion that dressage train-

HARMONY: Judges and trainers share the same goals, say symposium clinicians Gary Rockwell and Lilo Fore

ers and judges have differing objectives. “Judge and trainer can work together,” said Fore. “we have the same goals. Tere is no difference.” rockwell encouraged all of the riders in attendance to focus on the training, pointing out that a solid foundation ultimately produces better results in the competition arena. “it’s worth the time spent on the basics,” he said. “it makes such a difference.” s

Te 2010 youth Volunteer of the year is sixteen-year-old Naomi Martin, of Brooks, or. Martin has already racked up nearly 100 hours as a dressage-show volunteer in her region 6, doing everything from setting up arenas to working in show offices. She received a $250 gift certificate from Te Paddock Saddlery and a $500 scholarship with funds raised at the annual youth Silent auction held during convention.

Some, like the adequan/USDF horse of the year awards, recognize a year’s effort. others, like USDF rider medals, may represent decades of hard work. Proud recipients travel to the convention and don their finest for their well-deserved moment in the spotlight.

Janet nittmann of Dover Saddlery was on hand to present the USDF/Dover Saddlery adult amateur Medal national championship and reservechampionship awards to 2010 winners Audrey Narducci and Robbie Rice, respectively.

each year, several deserving USDF members receive grants and awards that help enable them to attend the convention. at the gMo level, the ruth arvanette Memorial Fund grant offsets the expenses of a group member, thereby helping to fulfill the late USDF employee’s dream of making it possible for every member to attend. Te 2010 recipient, Nettie Olsen, attended as a delegate from the Fort worth (tX) Dressage Club. youth convention scholarships help to fund youth members’ trips to convention. Te scholarship fund is replenished by proceeds from an annual convention silent auction. Convention attendees eagerly canvass the tables of offered items, which range from tack and equestrian apparel to jewelry and one-of-a-kind autographed items and even travel packages. Tree youth members received scholarships to attend the 2010 convention: Alexandra Cronin, 13, of harvard, Ma; Hannah Jay, 20, of Fulton, Mo; Lauren Pell, 16, of rancho Palos Verdes, Ca; and Ayla Spry, 15, of Milaca, Mn.

Governance it was an important election year, with the vice-presidential seat, the secretary’s position, and five regional-director positions (1, 3, 5, 7, and 9) up for grabs. USDF’s Board of governors (Bog) chose longtime new england Dressage association volunteer Beth Jenkins, Sherborn, Ma, as the new VP over contenders Janet Foy and Peter rothschild. Lisa Schmidt, of hampton, nJ, succeeds Alison Head as region 1 director. in region 3, Kimberly Taylor, of youngstown, FL, takes the reins from Sandi Bishop. Heather Petersen, Peyton, Co, succeeds outgoing region 5 director Teresa Hunt. incumbent region 7 director Terry Wilson, ojai, Ca; and region 9 director Bess Reineman, Lovelady, tX, ran unopposed and were elected by acclamation, as was incumbent USDF secretary Janine Malone, of Zebulon, nC. Te new USDF governance structure calls for the addition of three at-large directors to serve alongside the nine regional directors and the four officers (president, VP, sec-

retary, and treasurer) on the USDF executive Board. although the proposed bylaws change was for the committees to select the at-large directors, the Bog rejected that selection procedure. Beginning at the 2011 convention, the Bog will elect the at-large representatives. in the interim, the committee chairs will serve as ex officio (non-voting) executive Board members. at an open forum for competitors, show managers, judges, and technical delegates, the USDF executive Board requested member feedback on the subject of a US dressage national championships. Te proposed format: to be held in november, three weeks after the final great american/USDF regional Championships show of that year. regional champions and reserve champions would be invited to attend. For the first three years, the national championships would be held at the Kentucky horse Park in Lexington; thereafter, the location could rotate around the country. although some in attendance voiced concerns pertaining to weather difficulties, travel costs, and adult com-

petitors’ having to take time off work, a straw poll of the audience indicated support for going forward with plans. (Te issue has been tabled for a couple of years because of economic conditions, during which time USDF’s nationalchampionships fund has been seeded by a portion of regional Championship entry fees.) another popular open forum was the US equestrian Federation Dressage Committee’s discussion on proposed USeF rule changes affecting dressage. of all the changes on the table (to be voted on at last month’s USeF annual convention), the most anticipated was the USeF DC’s proposal to require the wearing of protective headgear in all tests at Fourth Level and below, and by all Fei Pony riders and all riders under the age of eighteen (regardless of level), at USeF-licensed/USDF-recognized dressage competitions.

Tese riders would also be required to wear protective headgear at all times while mounted on the show grounds. at CDis (Fei-recognized dressage competitions), Fei rules, not USeF’s, would prevail. Te proposed “helmet rule” drew widespread support from the forum attendees, although some in the audience voiced dissatisfaction that it would not require headgear at the Fei levels. (olympic eventer Darren Chiacchia, recovered from a severe head injury suffered in a fall at a 2008 horse trials, asked: “So the USeF doesn’t care about the brains of riders above Fourth Level?”) USeF president David O’Connor, also in the audience, called the proposed rule “an important first step” and predicted that “it will change eventually [to a more encompassing requirement], even at the Fei levels.”

The Fun Stuff all work and no play…you know the rest. Te travel and the long hours spent in meetings are hard work, and all convention attendees welcome opportunities to relax and to enjoy the local area. Te fun began literally steps from the hotel entrance. across the street is the north bank of the St. Johns river, flanked by a 1.5-mile pedestrian walkway. a couple of minutes’ walk away is a large shopping and dining pavilion that was popular with convention-goers. in a happy coincidence, the December 1 convention kickoff date was also that of the annual Jacksonville artwalk, an evening art-gallery festival. Te convention host gMo, the northeast Florida Dressage association, orga-

nized “top hats & tails,” an exhibit featuring the work of twelve local equine artists and photographers. USDF members and Jacksonville locals alike enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and the expansive display of art in an elegant historic building. Te nFDa continued its hospitality with a weekend reception held during the USDF symposium at the Jacksonville equestrian Center. Te bubbly flowed freely as symposium attendees mingled with nFDa members and others and enjoyed the annual nFDa year-end awards presentations. Tat door-prize tradition, the gift baskets donated by gMos, breaks the tedium of the long Board of governors assembly. a relatively new gMo-basket tradition is “Pegasus, the traveling gMo pony.” Te cute stuffed horse was part of a 2006 Potomac Valley Dressage association basket. he’s been included in the winning gMo’s basket ever since, most

in amateurs at training Level and number six in the country. Ten we went to two additional shows and dropped down to third. Tat was a learning experience; it really taught me to stay home and prepare my horse better.” Doing most of Bad Boy’s training herself, Benson is gaining first-hand understanding of “the importance of the training scale.” Te experience is “also teaching me to ride better so i can show off his gaits.” A challenge is that occasional lack of “forward.” Benson says she’s learned “to change things up so my warm-up and my schooling at home are exciting enough that he keeps producing the enthusiasm.” Te most fun, Benson says, is taking her horse places, “getting out in the warm-up ring, and knowing that he’s in the right mood and he’s going to show off—and that i’m going to enjoy every minute because he’s so exciting to ride when he’s like that.” She remembers in particular “one ride in a Materiale class where he went in and was just spot-on in his attitude, his movements. . . . i’ve had several such special rides, but i remember that one because he had a lead change on the rail to the wrong lead—and the judge’s comment was that he was so balanced in it that she couldn’t really criticize it.” occasionally Benson wonders “where Bad Boy would be in his training if a pro was on him. But he’s what i want in a horse, so i’m going to stay with riding him.” oh, and about that name? “i’ve had some judges tell me i need to change it, but i just tell them it’ll help them remember him.” —D.

n 1994, Dantia Benson “had a jumper that needed some flatwork and some discipline. i went to the dressage trainer at the barn where i was riding, who happened to be [USeF “R” judge/USDF-certified instructor] Heather Bender.” Te lessons helped, and Benson was hooked on dressage. As life took her elsewhere, she went to other trainers—most recently her “primary trainer” has been Sabine Schut-Kery—and “i finally have a couple of horses that i will keep long enough to bring up the levels.” Bad Boy is one of them. Benson saw a video clip of the gelding, then bought him as a two-year-old through Reesink Horses in the netherlands. Despite the name (given by his breeder’s wife), “he is very willing; he gets his show coat on and goes out there and wants to please. He’s very easy to work with; if he could just get a little more forward, he’d be everything you could want.” He’s also getting recognition: in 2009 he won Tree-Year-old Materiale and DSHB TreeYear-old Colts/Geldings titles, as well as the DG Bar Cup for three-year-olds; in 2010 he took the Cup for four-year-olds. Bad Boy is a “pretty solid First Level and schooling some Second Level: shoulder-fore, leg-yield, learning his transitions. i’m hoping he has the desire for the Fei Five-Year-old test, but that’s quite a competitive class; i’d need to work on some of my skills to make it a polished ride.” in 2011 “he’ll at least come out at First Level, and we’ll see what else he has in him”—but Benson is in no hurry. “i’m going to keep him at home and train him until he’s ready to come out and put on his best performance.” Last year, “i started him a little early and showed him a little too much. i should have stopped two shows before i did, when we were number one

Because the mare was “terrified of the flags” at big dressage shows, Lampert and Warlimont decided to “enter her in breed shows and not deal with all the commotion” while accustoming her to showing—“and she won! And this year we went back and entered a couple more breed shows to get more experience—and she won the whole thing again.” Tey plan to continue doing breed shows “because it’s fun and we think she likes it. She totally knows when it’s time to do the trot-off; sometimes she drags Petra.” Sunny’s become calmer in the dressage ring as well, especially at local shows. Lampert’s been competing her at Tird Level and schooling Fourth; they may move up early in 2011. Breeding may also be in Sunny’s near future. “Tis last trip to Germany,” Lampert says, “we talked about what stallion we might possibly breed with her this spring,” using one or more surrogate mothers. Somerset Farms “just moved to a new place with a big barn,” so Lampert’s planning to have the surrogates foal there and “bring up the babies ourselves.” Sunny, Lampert says, is “a great horse. She’s the perfect size for me, and we have a really good partnership. She’s great to look at and great to ride.” What’s been especially fun is “learning there are things we can do that i had no idea we could do: Suddenly i’m feeling wonderful suspension at the passage, or an extended trot that just goes flying across the diagonal so smoothly that i feel as if i’m sitting on a train. And Petra says, ‘You knew she had it in her.’” Te owner sums up: “i have a fancy little mare who’s taking me places. it’s pretty cool.” —D. J. Carey

Lampert also makes an annual trip to Germany with trainer/barn manager Petra Warlimont, looking for a few young horses to import. on one trip, Lampert “got on this one mare and thought, ‘Wow; i could actually learn to ride this one.’” Previously, the sales barn had “always put me on these Grand Prix horses that were 17.2 or bigger, and doing all this fancy stuff, and i’m only 5-foot-3.” Te mare “was very easy to ride, and for once i didn’t need 5-inch spurs to get a German horse to go.” Lampert asked about buying the mare, White Sun. told she was a client’s horse and not for sale, “i said, ‘Come on; everything’s for sale.’” And by the end of the trip, a deal was made. “We brought her home in the next month, and we’ve had her for three years. it’s pretty exciting; i’ve never had such a nice horse that i wasn’t selling.” in Germany, “Sunny” had been doing the equivalent of Fourth Level and higher. Lampert and her trainer decided to “take her down a notch or two and make her a little more of an amateur’s horse that would be easier to ride.” But “trying to coax her into something called ‘relaxation,’ that she didn’t know much about, took a lot of work. She was always ‘up,’ always ready, asking ‘What are we doing next?’ We tried to say, ‘Tat’s great; keep asking that question, but just be a little more relaxed about it.’” Tey “did a lot of long-and-low work with her, trying to ‘de-tune’ her. it took a good year to get her to the point where she didn’t get into a tizzy over seeing a dressage ring.”


Horse of the Year Training and First Level Rashka 2004 bay 16.3-hand Oldenburg stallion Sire: GP Raymeister; Dam: Tashka Owner/Rider/Breeder: Kenneth Borden, Wilmington, Illinois

ast year, Rashka was USDF’s Materiale champion. For 2010, he’s Horse of the Year at both training and First Level, as well as the top DSHB stallion aged four and up. Breeder/owner/rider Kenneth Borden notes that Rashka is following in the hoofprints of his sire, GP Raymeister, the 2010 intermediate ii Horse of the Year. (Borden, who’s also Raymeister’s breeder, is the 2009 and ’10 USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year.) As 2010 started, Borden says, “my only goal for Rashka was to try to represent the United States in the Fei Six-Year-old competition.” But two hoof abscesses thwarted that goal. With Rashka sound again, Borden brought him back into work carefully. eventually Borden decided to just “take him back to school,” concentrating any showing on training and First Level. For 2011, Borden will probably skip the Developing Horse competition for sevento nine-year-olds. “i think Rashka would be fine with the test, but i’d rather focus more on training”: doing Second and Tird levels, and “probably schooling and some showing at Fourth Level. i’m really happy with how he’s coming along: He’s getting 10s on his canter and his walk pretty consistently, from a variety of judges. And he’s started to get 9s on his extensions. Sometimes the gaits seem to change as a horse moves up the levels, but his collection seems to be getting even more harmonious and free-moving.” Dressage performance isn’t Rashka’s only job. His first babies, most from jumper


one more job: Rashka is “part of our lesson program. i don’t have a vast amount of lesson horses, so he gets used quite often that way. And he’s very accommodating to people learning.” He’s also “so mellow” that he routinely travels to shows next to mares without incident; Borden “can’t say enough about his temperament.” Rashka may be passing that temperament on to his offspring as well. “Tey’re the most expressive, most personable foals,” Borden says. “Tere’s a 67-year-old lady who goes with me to shows, and every once in a while she has to lead the mares and babies, so it’s nice to have something that’s very safe.” —D.

mares, hit the ground in 2009, “and they’re extremely athletic,” Borden says. “Tey show good dressage-oriented movement,” and “a couple of them actually free-jump on their own; they seem to carry on both the jumping and the dressage.” Rashka’s next foal crop will include some babies from mares by Dutch dressage team medalist olympic Ferro. Borden is hoping for “piaffe ability. only about one horse in ten seems to piaffe well, but Rashka’s already offered it quite easily. And all the judges comment on how easy his changes are. His flying changes and his canter work i keep attributing to opus, his grandfather; i’ve never had a horse go so quickly so high up the levels as he did. opus is the horse that started our breeding program, and Rashka’s canter is a replica of his.”

Her training method with Pax, as with all her horses: “i ask. if he can do it, he does it; if he can’t, i don’t stop asking. Te day will come when he’ll understand it. All he has to do is go to the ring and be obedient. When we first started, i asked him for half-pass. if it happened, great; if it didn’t, he wouldn’t need it for a while anyway. So i asked. And he did it. He’s like ‘oK; you want this? You want that?’” in 2009, Chohany brought Pax out at training Level. From there, she’s continued moving him along at his own pace, without pressure. “i don’t care how he places, and i never look to see who’s in the ring with me. Tat part is so unimportant; it’s the process that i love.” When an injury sidelined Chohany temporarily last summer, “my number-one student, Heather McCarthy” took on Pax, then showing at Second Level. McCarthy, who’s “loved that horse ever since Sandi got him,” felt “so fortunate to get the opportunity. He really taught me a lot. You have to think on him; you have to execute all the movements, and you have to be careful not to override. He’s such a sensitive, supple horse that you can really work on being an accurate rider.” Recovered, Chohany moved Pax to Tird Level before year’s end, “and he did fine there, too. He’s got his changes; he’s got his pirouettes; he’s got his piaffe. Tey’re not what they’re going to be, but he doesn’t need them yet, and he’s got the beginnings.” She hopes to help McCarthy qualify for Dressage at Devon (PA) this year, saying she and Pax “will just tag along. And if he wins, great; if he doesn’t, it doesn’t matter.” Still, “i’ve never had such a wondrous, wondrous horse. i want him to be the best he can be.” —D. J. Carey

tarting riding as an adult, Sandi Chohany went from hunters to jumpers to eventing—where “my horses all ran fast and jumped really well, but i couldn’t get that dressage stuff!” Her coach’s advice—“trot real slow, and that’s dressage”—was no help, so “i got into my truck and trailer and drove to California, pulled up in front of Hilda Gurney’s house, and said, ‘Could you give me a lesson?’ And she didn’t have the heart to turn me away.” Tat start led Chohany to a career as a professional dressage trainer and a US equestrian Federation “S” judge. Sandro Paix entered Chohany’s life through a trip to Germany. She’d “wanted a Sandro Hit baby for eight years” but had been outbid at the one auction she’d attended. Tis time, after admiring Sandro Hit himself in a stallion parade, she was watching his offspring go by when one “went up and fell down. So of course the audience said, ‘omigod, a flipper!’” But Chohany was unperturbed. “What part of their bodies do rearing horses use? Te back legs. And what part of the body does a dressage horse have to use? Te back legs.” Te incident dampened enthusiasm for the colt enough that Chohany was able to win the bidding. She left the nowgelded youngster with a trainer in Germany to “hang out and forget the trauma” of the auction, then later had him shipped to her winter base, a friend’s California ranch. Tere, she and her new horse, Sandro Paix—“Pax” around the barn—“started going up and down hills, and he saw cougar and wild boar and coyotes and snakes. We didn’t do dressage; we just went for gallops and for rides out in the woods. Ten, when i got him home, i said, ‘oK, now we’re going to do this silly stuff.’”

now, when i want to teach him a change or a pirouette, he offers it in a good natural way because the basics are there.” Winsor started in Fei Young Horse competition at age five and won the Five-Year-old championship. Te next year, on day one of the Six-Year-olds, “i went off course and we ended up tenth.” But “he ended up winning the Final on Sunday, and he finished third out of the field, which was awesome.” For 2010, Bellah decided to concentrate on Tird Level and “confirm some fun in the shows; not as high-pressure a program.” Still, Winsor “did great, because he’s Horse of the Year. But for me the most exciting thing is bringing him through the levels. i know it’s the result of the teaching i’ve put into him.” Bellah plans to bring Winsor out at Prix St. Georges in 2011; “if that’s consistent, we’ll go for Developing Horse. But he’ll just be eight, so we’ll still have another year if he isn’t ready. At home we school parts of the Prix St. Georges, and he does just fine, but i won’t push him.” Long-term, she also plans eventually to breed her young stallion, who “may be coming into his adolescence. He nickers now when a mare comes by, but i lunge him for five or ten minutes and he settles right down.” At press time, Bellah was planning to “take a break” from teaching and head for Florida to train with Christopher Hickey, “working toward our Prix St. Georges debut and the Developing Horse.” For herself, “even when i’m not riding, i’ll be able to watch and learn. Being able to watch the excellence happening puts me in a good frame of mind; i can absorb it like a sponge.” —D. J. Carey

icole Bellah is a USDF-certified instructor through Fourth Level. But “as a kid, i worked in barns whenever i could. i pretty much did anything i could and would ride anything i could.” At eighteen, she became a barn manager, working with horses in all disciplines but finding herself “really attracted to the dressage.” Bellah left horses for a while after marrying, “but then my husband and i realized that if you’re a horse person in your soul, you can’t ever really stop.” She bought a horse, trained him to Prix St. Georges, sold him, then got “kind of a rehab older horse, out in a pasture” and brought him back. After a successful Fei-level show career, that horse was retired. Ten, with husband troy’s blessing, “i took all my savings and booked a trip to Te netherlands” to look for a new mount. Tere, Bellah soon realized that “what i wanted, i couldn’t afford.” So instead of trained horses, “i ended up looking at really young horses. Winsor was one of the first: Tree and a half, standing quietly on the cross-ties, he seemed to have a sense of ‘old soul’ about him. i must have looked at eighty horses, but i kept thinking about Winsor, playing his video at night in the hotel.” She went home without the colt but thought more, watched the video, and concluded, “i’m forty-two, and i want to do this now, while i can.” All Winsor knew when he arrived in Missouri was walk, trot, and canter. “But it was like a seven-year-old’s walk, trot, and canter because he was so balanced and willing. All his gaits are really good.” Guided by the pyramid of training and with help from such visiting clinicians as Christopher Hickey, Bellah concentrated on giving her colt solid basics. “And

and the time, i may take him in that direction.” Mason has never before had “a horse that was this consistent from show to show and from year to year.” to preserve that consistency, “i try not to show him above where he’s comfortable. A little bit of a reach is fine, but i don’t want him to think it’s a hard job in the ring.” She also bases her training decisions on “how consistent he is at home. For example, i didn’t move him up to the Prix St. Georges until he practically never missed his changes at all. Because if he’s reliable in every movement at home, he will be in the ring.” Currently, Warsteiner’s “piaffe and passage are coming along well. He’s gotten much more expressive and ‘uphill.’ His stride has so much adjustability that it’s going to be fun to play with. Right now the pirouettes are probably his hardest movement, but i think they’re going to be one of his best movements. He sits really well, which is good for pirouettes; but i’ve found that horses that sit really well just aren’t strong enough in the beginning to do them, so they get a little uncertain and try to take over. And he’s got a wonderful brain—so once he learns to let me control the pirouettes, he will let me control them.” even though Warsteiner’s work is progressing, Mason says, “i think he’s not really considering it harder. And he’s perfectly put together for it, so hopefully he’ll keep liking it and keep working.” Meanwhile, “he loves to go to the shows,” where he still announces himself when he enters the ring. “i think he will forever be a little chatty. As long as he can still do flying changes between the whinnies, it’s oK.” —D. J. Carey

ne of two 2010 Horse of the Year “three-peats” (the other, GP Raymeister, is profiled on page 72), Warsteiner topped the First Level rankings in 2008 and Tird Level in 2009. in 2010, his standout achievement with owner/rider/“S” judge Heather Mason was the Fourth Level championship at Dressage at Devon (PA), which also earned him the Sebastian trophy for the highest Dutch Warmblood score and the AtA Fourth Level High Score trophy. Mason, who typically skips the Florida circuit and gives her horses a winter break from showing, had started 2010 thinking Warsteiner “was going to be a little green at Fourth Level. But he settled into the tests very quickly and was very solid. i don’t think he had any bad tests; he was very consistent through the year. toward the end of the season, i even did two Prix St. Georges tests with him, which also were very solid.” “Devon was definitely the standout” for the year, Mason says. “Going in, i was a little concerned that he was going to be a bit overwhelmed, but he settled in perfectly. He won the three tests we did, including getting over 73 percent in the first one. He was really solid through all three, and the international judges loved him just as much as all the smaller judges do. Tat was very important; i wanted the ‘big’ judges to see him.” At press time, Warsteiner’s 2011 plans were “still kind of up in the air.” Mason “will definitely show him at Prix St. Georges and intermediate i at the smaller shows; maybe we’ll hit a CDi in the fall.” She might also aim for the Developing Horse Championships. “Tis past year, i felt he was just a little too green. But next year, if i have the finances

Hlavacek says, adding, “What other pro would do that? it says a lot about her.” Steffen was “a little worried at first” about Magic’s being “a horse with very strong opinions. Tere were a few days when we tried to make the pirouettes a little bit smaller and he said, ‘nope, that’s way too much work.’ i accepted that, believing ‘He will tell us when he’s ready’”—and knowing that “at the Prix St. Georges and i-i levels, the horses that are most competitive are very big movers. For this level, he is definitely the right kind of horse.” At the pair’s first show together, in January 2010, “Tey did extremely well, scoring above 80 percent at Prix St. Georges,” Hlavacek says. “it made all the european news: ‘Here’s Steffen on a new horse.’” Since then, Magic has continued to score well, but there’s no hurry to move up the levels. team Magic’s current focus is the Pan Am Games. Another benefit to going slowly: “His cooperation is much better. to me, it always had to do with him being defensive, not because he didn’t want to do something but because he didn’t know how,” Steffen says. At press time, Hlavacek was anticipating that Magic “will compete in Termal [CA] in January and February; March is Dressage Affaire; and April is the Del Mar national. Ten we hope to go to the championships [at Gladstone, nJ]”— and, ideally, to Guadalajara, Mexico, in october for the Pan Ams. “Tere will be some very talented horses trying out. Whoever goes, it’s going to be a great team. We’d love to be among them; if not, we’ll be cheering.” —D. J. Carey

en Hlavacek took up dressage in 1990 while pursuing her PhD in sociology at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Te longtime Western rider “felt i was finally in a position to buy a horse, and i was lucky enough that my first trainer was Yvonne Coleman-Larsen” (now a USDF-certified instructor in Region 8). Hlavacek “started with a very inexpensive Arabian and kept trading up. i wasn’t a great rider, but i loved the sport. And Bruce, my husband, loves sports of any kind, so he immediately got into it.” A few years ago, back problems halted Hlavacek’s riding career. But she still loved dressage, “so we decided to make the transition to owners.” Tey looked for a professional with the savvy to identify and develop an internationalquality prospect, and chose Steffen and Shannon Peters. Steffen had already begun the search when Weltino’s Magic came to Shannon (who her husband says “rides young horses much better than i do”) to train. Hlavacek remembers, “Shannon contacted me and said, ‘i know you’re looking with Steffen, but this is a great horse. i think he’s got international potential.” Te Hlavaceks bought him. “Magic” had never competed, so Shannon started him out at First Level, doing well enough to go to the 2008 SixYear-old Young Horse Championship, where he placed second. Afterward, because Magic had grown so much and accomplished so much in one year, owners and trainer agreed on giving him a year off to “just be a horse.” in August 2009, Shannon judged him ready to come back—and “also made the decision that Steffen would be the best rider for him,”

nevertheless, Cacique is “challenging; he knows what i don’t like, and it feels as if he enjoys taking me there,” says Schut-Kery. one strategy that’s helped: letting him jump before shows, which seems to make him “more mellow” and willing to listen. Te stallion “has methodically worked his way through the ranks,” Heitmann says. “Tere hasn’t been any backsliding; he’s never hit a wall or refused to go on.” in 2009, the horse was the Great American/USDF Region 7 Prix St. Georges open champion and captured the California Dressage Society’s PSG title as well. For 2011, Womble wants Schut-Kery to continue to “enjoy the ride and feel she’s accomplishing things, and i want the horse to feel powerful and confident in her aids. i see improvement in the aids and his confidence every time.” Te trainer herself, who became a US citizen in 2008, hopes to qualify Cacique for this year’s US equestrian Federation Dressage Festival of Champions in Gladstone, nJ; they qualified in 2010, but Cacique injured himself the night before their scheduled departure. Beyond that, she may “look into the i-ii and Grand Prix work. But that would definitely be more pressure, so i’d want to see how he handles it.” Breeding isn’t a major focus yet, but Cacique has “produced beautiful babies,” Womble says. “Tey’re First Premiums, and they come out looking like him.” Despite former owner ed Wallace’s occasional teasing that “You took my horse!”, she’s “really grateful he sold the horse to me.” —D.

eterinarian Mike Heitmann was examining a mare at his clinic with her foal, Cacique—“as cute a baby as you’ve ever seen”—when his wife, Alice Womble, came in, saw the foal, and fell in love. Heitmann discouraged her from asking owner/breeder ed Wallace to sell her the baby, who’d been imported in utero from Germany. But after her own stallion died some months later, Womble again thought of Cacique. And somehow, Heitmann says, “she convinced ed he needed to sell us the horse.” Looking back, the vet is glad she did. “i deal with horses on a daily basis, and i see very few that impress me as being smart and knowing what they want me to make them do.” Cacique did; since then, “he’s spent as much time training us as we’ve spent training him.” For the youngster’s education, the owners started with a couple of local barns, but Heitmann “never felt like we were getting where we needed to be.” eventually Womble decided to ask California-based Sabine Schut-Kery, whom they knew from her years training in texas, to take on the now six-year-old. Schut-Kery visited, rode him, and agreed to a three-month trial to “see how he responds to me.” Five years later, he’s still there. Cacique, Womble says, “is charming, and he has a strong will. You have to be a great rider to capture his talent because he will outsmart you. Sabine doesn’t so much ‘control’ him; she works through his personality. it’s kind of like when your husband thinks that some great idea is his idea and really it’s yours. She’s got a great way with stallions; she gets them thinking, ‘Hey, that’s what i wanted to do!’”

i would pick up on. And because he’s a stallion, he wasn’t super-happy having all this new structure.” But that passed. now, Barteau says, “he is a worker, and he likes it.” in return, she’s “careful to visit his stall two or three times a day; he’s happy to see me, and i always have treats. And i make a lot of deals with him—like ‘if you work super-hard, you get to go out and roll around and get filthy.’” With horses, “you have to have a partnership; you have to make them yours, and they have to think they’re yours. i think Ray now thinks he’s mine again.” Te fruits of that partnership include placing third in the 2010 i-i championships at Gladstone, nJ. Barteau moved Ray up to i-ii afterward, and at the Region 2 championships he won “the i-i and the i-ii and the i-i Freestyle—a nice hat trick. And i think he’s going to be a really good Grand Prix horse.” For 2011, Frantz says, Ray “will go to Florida for CDi shows (we have few in Region 2), hoping to qualify for Gladstone. Ten back up here and just hard work throughout the winter” toward the goal of a Grand Prix debut. Frantz sums up: “i’m a businesswoman, not a horse trainer. i take responsibility, but i don’t interfere. i have absolute trust in Yvonne and [husband] Kim Barteau—their integrity, their recommendations, their training program. And because of that, we have success.” —D. J. Carey

ot only is Ginna Frantz’s stallion GP Raymeister “three-peating” as an Adequan/USDF Horse of the Year (he won at training Level in ’06 and Prix St. Georges in ’09); Frantz herself is four-peating as US equestrian Federation owner of the Year in dressage. (“We must be doing something right,” she says.) “Ray” and rider Kassandra Barteau wound up 2009 by traveling to Germany, representing the US in the Fei World Cup Dressage Final for Young Riders. Te pair’s secondplace finish in the “B” final was a great cap to Barteau’s young-rider career and “a big eye-opener for her, seeing the quality of riding and horses there,” says Yvonne Barteau, Kassie’s mom and trainer. Back home, Frantz and the Barteaus agreed that it was time to focus Ray’s training toward Grand Prix. Yvonne Barteau had ridden him through training Level, then turned him over to Kassie for three years as a YR mount. But getting any horse, and especially a stallion, to Grand Prix can be “tricky,” Yvonne says, so mother and daughter switched mounts. Te transition was “a little tough for Ray at first,” Frantz says. “His macho ego was a bit bruised. Kassie adored him, and they got along beautifully. With Yvonne, it was ‘down to business; no more Mister Beautiful.’” Barteau agrees that “it was easier for Ray to make Kassie happy than to make me happy; some things he might have gotten away with before,

information “was extremely useful,” especially for “redoing the freestyle a little bit.” Ravel’s WeG freestyle, designed by terry Ciotti Gallo, was “definitely the most difficult freestyle i’ve ever ridden,” Peters says. “Tere was simply no room for error. if you were just a little bit behind the music, or a little bit ahead, it would be ridiculous. We wanted to make sure that each and every transition was very obvious: absolutely no doubt when i go into the piaffe, when i come out of the piaffe, when we start the canter pirouettes, when we stop the changes, and so on.” What’s more, Peters had dedicated his freestyle ride to 2008 olympic teammate Courtney Dye, who’s now recovering from a major head injury—and had committed himself to wearing protective headgear in the honor round. “So we had to win a medal!” he says. Tey did, with a score just 0.35 percent below that of silver medalists Laura Bechtolsheimer and Mistral Hojris. And Peters thinks there’s room to go higher. “Looking back, there have been a few Grands Prix and a few Grand Prix Specials where i’m not sure that both Ravel and i could do it a whole lot better. But i never so far have ridden a freestyle where i say, ‘oK, now we’ve really mastered it.’ i think the choreography is there, the music is there, but i still can ride it a little bit better. So that’s on the agenda” as they aim toward the 2012 London olympics. Reflecting on her horse’s extraordinary year, Yamazaki says, “My admiration of Steffen has grown even more. Te pressure on him was really big, and he came through.” Peters, in his turn, says, “i consider myself lucky to ride a horse like Ravel, and also to work for and with owners like Akiko and Jerry [husband Jerry Yang]—because without them there wouldn’t be a Ravel.” —D.

fter being the first US horse and rider ever to win all three Grand Prix classes at Germany’s legendary CDi Aachen, what do you do for an encore? How about earning the US its first-ever individual dressage world championship medal? Tat’s what Ravel and rider Steffen Peters did (twice!), taking bronze in the Grand Prix Special and in the Freestyle at the 2010 Alltech Fei World equestrian Games in Lexington, KY. For owner Akiko Yamazaki, “to be on home turf and to see all the American flags, and to hear the roar when Ravel and Steffen came in, was just unbelievable.” Before the WeG, however, neither owner nor rider had taken success for granted. Since February 2010, Yamazaki says, Ravel “really hadn’t been in a big arena. And Steffen doesn’t have the competition opportunities the european riders have, with so many CDis that they can ride against each other week after week.” For that reason, Peters “made a point of going to europe” with USeF dressage technical advisor Anne Gribbons to “watch very closely the whole competition in Aachen” and “refresh my memory of what the european standard is all about.” Meanwhile, Yamazaki had encountered Princeton-based physicist David Stickland, who has developed a system of dressage-score statistical analysis. “Usually,” Yamazaki says, “we know where the weaknesses are, but we don’t know the importance actual marks have for the overall score. But when you start adding the coefficients and the number of times a movement is judged, where you have to improve to stay competitive becomes much clearer.” Applying Stickland’s system, Peters says, helped identify “a few things, such as the left canter pirouettes, the passage here and there, where we lost points—and even though it wasn’t a very big margin, it was very consistent throughout the shows.” Te

The Century Club was formed at The Dressage Foundation in 1996, at the suggestion of Max Gahwyler (CT), who with his horse Prinz Eugen, became team # 2 in the Century Club.

The first “Century Club” ride, held in 1996, featured Lazelle Knocke and her teammate Don Perignon. As she said, “hopefully the Century Club will be in the forefront of a very interesting opportunity for Seniors and Dressage as Recreational and Therapeutic riding.”

master’s challenge awards

We are excited to share the growth of The Dressage Foundation’s Century Club – 80 teams and counting!

“As I think back over the years, it is the concept of teamwork that I have found most satisfying. In most athletic endeavors that older people pursue, e.g. golf, tennis, swimming, cycling, the effort is purely individual. Dressage requires one to accommodate his or her abilities to that of the horse. When that is done successfully, there is no better – John Claridge feeling.” (Team #72 with Clockwork)

Riding it out Going forward can mean moving on By Birgit Villeminey

M

y Morgan, Sunup nightshade, has a checkered past that includes harsh training methods and the label of “not trainable” from several professionals. “Saumur” came to me with a penchant for bolting, spooking, and turning on a dime at full speed. Years of patient

blink and takes me halfway through the arena. Boarding at a facility with an indoor arena for the winter, i discovered that Saumur refused to go down the long side of the arena when the doors were closed. i tried stopping and giving him treats to show him that there is nothing to be afraid of, and bending and going forward slowly, but with limited success. i’d had an accident with a young horse the previous fall that resulted in a broken nose, stitches, and shattered confidence. As a result, my solution to Saumur’s spooking problem was to back off, staying on the “safe” side of the arena or not riding when conditions weren’t ideal. in the summer, Saumur and i had had a great clinic with Fei-level competitor and USDF BREAK ON THROUGH: Te writer on her horse, Saumur, with clinipresident George cian George Williams Williams. George came back in the training finally paid dividends, and fall for a second clinic, and this time although he’s far from “bombproof,” we it was cold and the arena doors were are now able to focus on the work. closed. Saumur has always been a spooky Te first day went well, aided by horse indoors. When everything the fact that it was cloudy and so is closed up—and heaven forbid there were no errant rays of light that light or snow shows through a streaming into the arena.

long side at the walk and the trot, but Saumur had major spooking issues in the canter. George had us face the demons. He asked me to keep Saumur supple with a lower neck, which was easier said than done because my horse would brace his neck and jump away every time we approached the scary section of the ring. Te key, George said, was not to give in but instead to work on suppleness and throughness until Saumur went around the entire arena while maintaining an even tempo and staying round and supple. George reminded me that i had never done anything to hurt Saumur, that his past is long gone, and—most important— that the horse now had my number and had learned how to get me to back off from the work. i was embarrassed by my horse’s behavior and couldn’t help wondering what the spectators and my regular instructor must be thinking. it crossed my mind to stop and say to George, “Fine, you do it!” But we finally managed to canter by the scary doors without bracing or stopping. it took a long time and was mentally and physically exhausting, but the elation and sense of accomplishment at the end were well worth it. Saumur has taught me patience. He has also made me realize that you can’t dwell on the past forever. You have to move on and not make excuses based on previous bad experiences; otherwise you will be stuck forever. Sometimes there comes a moment when you just have to ride through it. it’s a metaphor that doesn’t apply only to riding. And sometimes you just need somebody who won’t let you quit until the goal is accomplished. Tank you, George! Birgit Villeminey lives in Milford, MI, where she is vice president of sales for an automotive supplier. Her household includes her French-born husband, also an equestrian; and their horses, dogs, and cats. She earned her USDF bronze medal in 2010 aboard Saumur and is currently schooling Fourth Level.

leave the facility in better shape than when you arrived. express your appreciation to the owners and organizers of the events you attend. Be the kind of guest you wouldn’t mind inviting into your own home, and ask your peers to do the same. Lead by example. Speaking of leading by example, pay attention to the article in this month’s issue on protective headgear (“Under Cover,” page 30). other sports and equestrian disciplines that previously did not require helmets have come to accept them as a way of life. Bicyclists, mountain climbers, motorcyclists, whitewater rafters, football and hockey players, and even the proverbial cowboy will don a helmet to help boost the odds of having a “happily ever after” in his or her favor. What parent hasn’t said “Buckle up” or “Where’s your helmet?” when a child gets in the car or on a bike (or, better yet, heard a child remind him or her to do the same)? Yet many dressage riders shudder at the thought of donning headgear that might be perceived as less than fashionable, and to top it off (pun intended), end up with the dreaded “hat hair” afterward. Perhaps it’s time to start something new, put things into perspective, and lead by example. After all, spring is just around the corner! s

hether you are a “fair weather” rider or dedicated to daily schooling, spring is always a welcome sign. it is a time of new beginnings and fresh perspectives: a time to surge forward with renewed vigor and reach for that lofty goal, the next level, or a deeper understanding of things you thought you already knew. it’s also a good time to take a moment to show your gratitude and appreciation to those who are helping you on your way. Your family, spouse, instructor, trainer, breeder, farrier, veterinarian, feed supplier, and (unless you are fortunate enough to own a farm yourself ) facility owner all make it possible for you to enjoy, study, and even compete in the sport of dressage. if you are lucky enough to have access to an equestrian establishment, take a moment to think about how you can show your appreciation for the use of those facilities. Whether publicly or privately owned, equestrian facilities don’t maintain themselves, and labor and liability costs have grown astronomically in the past few years. it’s oh-so-easy to expect immaculate grounds and perfect footing that will hold up in all types of weather when we feel we are footing the bill (no pun intended) with our lesson, clinic, or show fees. But what percentage of the total invested time and resources do you think your contribution covers? Perhaps we should pause and ask ourselves: Where would we ride if it were not for these facilities? Am i being the kind of guest i would like to have at my own facility? At my own home? i would like to challenge every equestrian to “leave no trace” wherever you go, or—better yet—to

where we’ve been striving to post breaking dressage and USDF news and interesting links, and generally to engage the dressage community. You can also follow USDF on twitter (@USDF) or yours truly (@JenniferoBryant) for more info, tips, and dressage musings. Social media and the internet hadn’t been dreamed up yet back in 1971, when a Czech-Russian émigré named ivan i. Bezugloff Jr. founded the first US magazine dedicated to dressage, called, appropriately, Dressage. Later renamed Dressage & CT to reflect its coverage of combined training (eventing), the magazine enjoyed a 25-year run with ivan at the helm. For his contributions to dressage, he was inducted into the Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame in 2003. ivan died January 7 (obituary, page 12), and i mourn his passing keenly. You see, i edited D&CT for a little more than a year after ivan sold the magazine to a large publishing company, which later shuttered the title following a merger. ivan was always kind and supportive of both me and the USDF—so much so, in fact, that he donated his entire library of D&CT back issues and dressage books to the library at the USDF national education Center. Come visit the neC in Lexington, KY, and spend some time poring over ivan’s legacy. it’s a considerable one.

ur cover story this month is a guide to protective headgear for dressage schooling and show (“Under Cover,” page 30). it turned out to be prescient editorial planning: in January, just before this issue went to press, the US equestrian Federation passed the dressage “helmet rule” at its 2011 annual convention (details, page 12). it is not often in our traditionembracing sport that we see major change. tack and apparel styles and colors evolve; tests get rewritten; required scores are tweaked. Many changes affect a relatively small fraction of the dressage riders out there. Te USeF rule, however, which takes effect this month, will affect the lion’s share of riders at USeF-licensed/ USDF-recognized dressage competitions. Most competitors show at the national levels (Fourth Level and below), in which protective headgear is now required. Furthermore, all riders under the age of eighteen must “strap one on” at USeF/USDF shows, regardless of level. Helmets are also mandatory for all riders of noncompeting horses and all para-equestrian dressage competitors. Cyberspace, naturally, is abuzz with comment on the new rule, with some posters strongly “pro” and others equally strongly “con.” How much of the criticism will be chalked up to typical human resistance to change remains to be seen. i cannot recall the level of furor over the mandating of seat-belt use back in the 1980s, but i imagine it was high. Yet today’s drivers and passengers buckle up with scarcely a peep. Perhaps protectiveheadgear use will evolve similarly. What do you think about the new rule? Drop me a line at jbryant@usdf. org. You can also post a comment on USDF’s Facebook page (United States Dressage Federation official Page),

member connection From the New VP As the 2010 Adequan/USDF national Convention in Jacksonville worked its way toward the election for vice president, i became increasingly convinced that the Board of Governors had clear choices for the next VP. Janet Foy, Peter Rothschild, and i had very different backgrounds and approaches to the position—an apple, an orange, and a strawberry, so to speak. My sincere thanks to the BoG for giving me the nod. Te vice presidency of USDF is a position i feel humbled and privileged to occupy, and it is a challenge that i am very much looking forward to taking on. Many of you have never heard of me, so i want to share with you my focus as the new USDF VP. out in the trenches, i hear complaints: “Why do we need USDF anyway?” or “USDF does nothing for me.” USDF volunteers and staff have done an incredible job of putting dressage on the equestrian map. Sometimes the process has been

messy and controversial, but for 40 years this organization has marched forward. to continue growing the membership and expanding our national influence, i believe it is critical that USDF find a balance between the attraction and financial necessity of the competition and awards programs, and nurturing the growth, education, and enthusiasm of its “grass roots,” from which the cream bubbles to the top. i come to all of you now to champion, on the national stage, the dressage “man on the street”: the grass roots without whom this organization cannot survive, and who are the key to its future success—the adult amateur, the riders from other disciplines, the mom bumping around on her daughter’s ex-show horse. Tat is what USDF is all about. Beth Jenkins Sherborn, MA

Dressage Woes: It’s Not the Economy i was just reading “Ringside” in the latest issue and felt compelled to reply to the question, “What has the USDF done for me lately?” (December 2010/January 2011). You comment on the fact that the USDF has gone to great lengths to improve judging and education. Tat’s nice, but it’s a relatively small piece of the puzzle. it is a question that my fellow competitors/ friends and i were asking ourselves on the way home from a USDF show in Jacksonville, FL, in December. Coincidentally, the 2010 USDF symposium was taking place at the same time in the same venue. We were not there for the symposium, as we found the cost of attending to be a bit out of bounds. We made the six-hour journey for fun and a chance at the northeast Florida Dressage Association freestyle competition’s total purse of $3,000. We all came to the conclusion that we were quite offended at the USDF’s determination to keep us non-payers away from the symposium. Te show office was in

the same building as the symposium, so inevitably we came in contact with the guards who were put there to make sure we didn’t sneak some information from Gary and Lilo. i have been a member of the USDF on and off since i was a junior rider in the early 1990s. i am an Fei-level rider and have earned my USDF bronze and silver medals. i feel that i have “paid my dues” and now have the right to express my frustration and concern regarding the fate of dressage in this country. i have read articles blaming the economy for the decline in membership and funding for programs. i want to challenge that idea with the thought that perhaps membership and showing are down not only because of the economy, but also because the investment-toreward ratio simply doesn’t pay with the USDF. in your “Ringside” article, you state that some riders don’t value the year-end awards, but some do. i, for one, do not. not because i am not competitive or don’t care about awards, but because the awards and quality thereof are, frankly, pathetic and borderline insulting. i don’t need another $3 medal hanging on my wall. Give me something i can use! My daughter is a member of the national Barrel Horse Association. nBHA membership dues are comparable to USDF’s, while the cost of showing is minuscule as compared to a dressage show. Te nBHA reports that, despite the economy, showing and membership are holding steady. if you haven’t experienced a barrel race for yourself, they are fun! Te prizes are amazing, the educational opportunities offered at large competitions (at low or zero cost) are generous, and the sponsors are enthusiastic and numerous. Unlike dressage, the investment/reward ratio is excellent. even if you don’t win a horse trailer or saddle, you will have fun, and excitement is virtually guaranteed. i see dressage—a sport that i love and am completely addicted to—becoming increasingly elitist (and yes, i ride and own an imported

Te investment/ reward ratio needs to be drastically improved. i frequently take lessons with German trainers, who have remarked at the lack of prize money as well as the expense of showing in this country as compared to europe. i am afraid for the future of dressage in this country if it continues in this direction.

Judges and Breeds

www.SmartPak.com | 1-800-431-3916

i don’t normally write letters but, based on my experiences, i have to disagree with comments made about crossbreds in the show ring (“Cross Purposes,” December 2010/January 2011). Te comment in question is that judges aren’t told the breeding of the horses presented to them in open sport-horse classes. As recently as two years ago, at a dressage sport-horse breeding show at Morven Park in Leesburg, VA, they didn’t announce just the bridle numbers of the horses going in the ring; they announced the breed, dam, sire, damsire, and names of the owner and handler. Back in 1990, at a DSHB show at Prince George’s equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD, there were only bridle numbers for the judge to go by, at least until they pinned the class; then they announced the breed, dam, sire, and owner. i was showing a three-year-old solid Appaloosa gelding. He won his class, only to have a warmblood gelding that placed behind him named reserve champion for the show. Tat judge wouldn’t even acknowledge that we were in the ring for the championship class; he

never looked at my horse or made eye contact with me. My horse went on to win many classes under saddle and frequently scored in the high 60s or low 70s. Some judges have breed prejudice. Unless you know for sure that horses’ breeding will not be announced when they go in the ring, if you have a nontraditional breed of horse, think long and hard about going to a DSHB show. Judy Taylor Westminster, MD

Totilas or Ravel? You have probably received many emails regarding the cover photo of the World equestrian Games edition of USDF Connection (november 2010). You run a very fine magazine, and i love the training and educational articles. Connection has a great balance between showing info and education. Hats off to you for that! i did not agree this time with having totilas on the cover because this is a US magazine, and our own American rider, Steffen Peters on Ravel, should have been featured. How about a feature in the next issue on Steffen and Ravel and his experience at the WeG to honor his achievement? Karen Irland Edmonds, WA But of course! We profiled Ravel, the 2010 Adequan/USDF Grand Prix Horse of the Year, in last month’s yearbook issue.

A

nyone riding a horse competing at Fourth Level and below, and all riders under the age of eighteen, must don protective headgear at all times while mounted at US equestrian Federation-licensed/USDF-recognized dressage shows, beginning March 1. Anyone riding a noncompeting horse also must wear protective headgear. And all eventers must wear protective headgear at all times while mounted at national-level eventing competitions. Both rule changes were approved at the 2011 USeF annual convention in January. “Protective headgear” means properly fitted AStM (American Society for testing and Materials)/Sei (Safety equipment institute)approved equestrian helmets bearing the Sei tag and with fastened harnesses. Tere is no further requirement as to helmet type or style, although the existing rules governing permitted colors apply. THE FUTURE IS NOW: Many riders must Te change to the don protective headgear at shows dressage-attire rule (USeF DR120) is not as clear-cut as the eventing rule change. in dressage, protective headgear is not required of competitors aged eighteen and up who are riding horses entered only in Fei-level classes: Prix St. Georges through Grand Prix, Young Rider, USeF Developing PSG, and USeF “Brentina Cup.” Helmets are required, however, for Fei Juniors and Fei Pony riders and in all USeF and Fei Young Horse classes (four- to six-year-olds). And all riders competing in para-equestrian dressage tests must wear protective headgear at all times while mounted, regardless of age or level. Moreover, in Fei-recognized classes (e.g., CDi, CDi-Y, CDi-J, CDi-P), Fei rules take precedence: Protective headgear is permitted but not required. For dressage competitors aged eighteen and up, the horse’s level(s) dictates whether protective headgear must be worn. if a rider is showing a horse at both Fourth Level and Prix St. Georges, for instance, then he or she must wear protective headgear for both tests and at all times while mounted. “if the technology is available to reduce head injuries, the time to use it is now,” said USeF president David o’Connor. “i am very proud of our organization for taking this very important step. it is a huge direction of change.”

van i. Bezugloff Jr., 2003 Roemer Foundation/ USDF Hall of Fame inductee and founding editor of the first American dressage magazine, died January 7 at his home in Cleveland Heights, oH. He was 85. Born in Slovakia to Czech-Russian parents, Bezugloff immigrated to the US in 1952. An electronics engineer, he established two businesses, Metronix inc. and later iB instruments inc., in the 1950s and early 1960s. Bezugloff ’s father PUBLISHING PIONEER: came from a family of Bezugloff in an undated Russian horse breeders, and as a boy ivan learned photo to ride. But ohio was home to mostly Western riders, and there was little interest in english riding beyond some hunter/jumper activity. A kindred spirit in the form of Lake erie College (oH) ridingprogram director Laddie Andaházy eventually surfaced, and Bezugloff began to ride with him. Bezugloff fretted over the lack of available dressage literature in the US. encouraged by Andaházy, he founded Dressage magazine in 1971, later changing the name to Dressage & CT to reflect the inclusion of combined training (eventing). He remained at the helm for the next 25 years, during which he published training articles, event coverage, opinion pieces, and equine-biomechanics treatises by such well-known figures as Charles de Kunffy, Jean-Claude Racinet, and Kay Meredith. He also established Xenophon Press, a publisher of books on classical equitation. A founding member of the USDF, Bezugloff remained a supporter of the organization throughout his life. After the USDF relocated from Lincoln, ne, to Lexington, KY, he donated his library of dressage books and D&CT back issues to the USDF national education Center library. Bezugloff is survived by his wife of 59 years, natalia “natasha” B. Bezugloff. A memorial service was held January 17 in Cleveland Heights. in lieu of flowers, Mrs. Bezugloff suggests donations to the USDF or to a charity of one’s choosing. —Jennifer O. Bryant

hy are whips not allowed in Great American/ USDF Regional Championship classes and certain other championships (such as the Col. Bengt Ljungquist Memorial Championships in Region 1) when they are allowed in the qualifying classes? nancy Krial Upper Black Eddy, PA

Veronica Holt, USDF Regional Championships Committee chair: We used to forbid whips in Regional Championships qualifying rides, but it was too confusing for all. Frequently, the qualifying and non-qualifying were

mixed in the same class, and it was hard for the judge and management to enforce. inconsistencies like that tend to lead to an unequal playing field. it just wasn’t fair. i am pretty sure that the no-whip tradition in most championships is a “trickle down” from our international organization, the Fei. its rules do not allow a competitor with a whip to enter the area around the arena, let alone take it into the performance arena. Te penalty is a deduction of two points from each judge (there are at least three judges on the panel for a CDi). if the hapless rider enters the performance arena with a whip, she again incurs a deduction of two points from each judge— virtually the same as elimination.

A USDF-certified instructor shares her strategies for success By Karen McGoldrick

S

itting the trot is a basic skill required of every dressage rider who aspires to compete above First Level. However, “basic” doesn’t mean “easy.” After all, if sitting the trot were easy, rising trot would never have been invented! A rider who sits well—in correct alignment and balance, with supple joints—does not rely on leg and arm strength to stay on. instead, she can use her arms and legs independently

A good seat helps you to feel your horse’s body and movement, and from this awareness you can learn to influence him in a natural and positive way, using feel and timing. Learning to sit properly is, therefore, just the beginning of learning to ride. Children learn to ride without much intellectual effort. Put the average child on a safe mount and she will unselfconsciously bebop around in the saddle, perhaps a bit wobbly at the

The Four Fundamentals no one takes up dressage in hopes of forever working on the lunge line, and adult students especially feel the press of time. Still, nobody masters the sitting trot overnight. You’ll have to work at it, so work smart and make sure that your saddle time is time well spent. Check the following four points off your list, and you’ll be way ahead of the game. 1. Find a suitable mount. Start your lessons on a horse whose temperament is forgiving of mistakes and that is tolerant of some awkward moves or unintended aids. Choose a mount with average gaits—not too scopey or intimidating. He should be well-behaved and calm on the lunge line in order to build your confidence. However, avoid the very lazy horse, as you can’t relax and learn to sit the trot if you are constantly having to drive him forward. Stay away from horses that are green-broke or improperly trained, unsound, or with gaits so rough that they make your innards feel like they’ve been put through a mixmaster. 2. Get a properly fitted saddle. not only is an ill-fitting saddle bad for the horse, but it is also nearly impossible to sit correctly in an unbalanced saddle. if the saddle chafes or tips you forward or backward, you can’t expect

Master the Sitting trot

For the adult beginner, learning to sit the trot can be a daunting task, filled with self-conscious moments, frustration, and physical challenges. Although there’s no substitute for actual saddle time, gaining a clear understanding of human anatomy and rider biomechanics can help the process along. equally important, adults need to recognize their optimal learning environment. in this article, i will describe the process that i’ve found most successful in teaching riders to sit the trot. i’ll also share some exercises used by my colleague, Balimo instructor Allison Faso, to improve body awareness in the process of developing one’s seat.


to develop a comfortable, correct position. Finding a saddle that fits both rider and horse can be a tedious process, but it makes a world of difference. 3. Find a safe place to learn. Adult riders often have to deal with fear—which, in measured doses, can be a healthy thing. Assess your situation. is your fear rational? if it is, then find a different situation, one in which you can learn in a safe environment. tension and fear are the enemies of an upright, relaxed, and supple seat. Anxiety is different from fear, but it can cause the same problems. i’ve seen riders lose the ability to sit simply from performance anxiety. At a show, for example, anxiety can cause even a good rider’s adductor muscles (inner thighs) to tighten, the shoulders to rise, and the upper body to lean forward. 4. Find the right instructor. Because there are no licenses required in this country to teach riding, it can be difficult for the beginner to determine whether an instructor is qualified. Tat is why the USDF developed its instructor/trainer Certification Program. Find a USDF-certified instructor at www.usdf.org. Choose an instructor who is willing to take the time to give you the foundation you’ll need in order to make progress toward your goals (see “Due Diligence” below).

Due Diligence When it comes to learning to sit the trot, the slow, thorough way is the speediest way. “Do the donkey work” at the beginning and you’ll avoid having to go back to basics later. As you embark on this journey, know that, unless you commit to regular training sessions, progress will be slower and more frustrating than you’d like. no one can get fit or skilled with sporadic attempts. Although developing core strength, cardiovascular fitness, and flexibility will add greatly to your riding program, you’ll have to do the time in the saddle if you want to learn to sit well. [

clinic it’s best to begin on a lunge line with a grab strap attached to the saddle D-rings for security. With a steady lunge horse, a good instructor, protective headgear, and a grab strap at the ready, you’ll be able to focus on your riding and not worry about the horse. Just as in the gym, think about doing your sitting-trot work in “sets” so you do not work past the point of fatigue. Fatigued riders resort to gripping the saddle.

The Question of Balance Te trot is a two-beat gait in which the horse’s legs move in diagonal pairs. Te horse moves forward, of course, but there is a lot of up-anddown motion in the trot as well. each hind leg alternately swings under the rider’s weight as the propulsive long muscles of the horse’s back contract and relax, which cause the sides of the back to rise and fall. to sit this gait,

the rider must be able to maintain balance and follow the motion with supple joints, keeping her center of gravity in sync with the horse’s movement. Te key to remaining balanced and “with” the horse’s motion is the stability of the rider’s trunk over her pelvis. Tink of a male ballet dancer lifting his partner. He can lift the ballerina only if she is erect in her torso. if she were to go limp like a sack of potatoes in midlift, the man would certainly drop her and probably would injure himself. A stable trunk not only helps you find your balance; it also helps your horse to maintain his own balance. Stability, however, does not mean rigidity or stiffness in the back and hips. Te muscles of your back and abdominals must be free to make mini-contractions so small you’re not aware of them, and your chest must be broad and relaxed so that you can breathe normally. Your shoulders should hang relaxed. if you try to hold

yourself in position, you’ll prevent yourself from moving with your horse and you’ll wear yourself out! What you’re going for is “positive tension”— a state between slackness and contraction. it’s a confident, erect, correctly aligned posture (“Ride arrogant,” as one instructor told me). And it can be difficult to achieve if you frequently succumb to poor posture, such as slumping over a computer keyboard or the steering wheel of the car.

Sitting Specifics Here is a biomechanical look at how skilled riders sit the trot. Te rider must balance her stable trunk over her base of support. in sitting trot, that base is the bottom of the pelvis. Dressage texts frequently refer to the so-called three-point seat: the two sitting bones and the pubic bone. However, many riders misinterpret this concept. Te top of the pu-

Start with one arm at a time, holding the strap on the front of your saddle, until you feel secure enough to lift both arms, as Allison is doing here. Tis is a fairly advanced exercise that builds confidence and balance—and teaches you not to rely on the reins for support.

This miracle mount is a riding simulator, and it’s being discovered by equestrians everywhere as a safe, humane alternative to real horses for teaching riding. Living just a few hours away in Georgia, I’ve had the opportunity to check out “Amerika,” a Racewood riding simulator that resides at the facility of certified John Lyons trainer Beth Collins in Shelby, NC. Amerika can trot and canter while the rider observes herself from all angles in real time, and the instructor can literally be hands-on. There are other simulator models as well, including a dressage-specific version, a racehorse, and a polo pony. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every new rider had the opportunity to master some basics on a simulator before sitting on the real thing?

Riding with a constant anterior or posterior pelvic tilt (by arching the lower back or tucking the hips under) disrupts the entire body’s alignment and can be injurious to the back.

hat do successful riders have in common? They’re confident, correctly balanced and aligned in the saddle, and at an ideal level of mental and physical relaxation. There is a certain look to a rider who is truly connected to the horse. Steffen Peters, Edward Gal, Courtney Dye, and others sit deeply “into” the horse in an unforced and seemingly effortless manner. Their movement follows the rhythm of the horse so elastically that they appear to be sitting still. As an instructor who teaches juniors, young riders, and adult amateurs, my first job is to teach my students to sit. This is not an easy task for either instructor or rider. In 2004, I attended my first Eckart Meyners seat symposium. I was impressed by the immediate improvements he was able to make in riders’ seats and positions. I soon enrolled in Mr. Meyners’ Balimo (Balance in Motion) instructortraining program. Eckart Meyners is a professor of sports physiology and body movement at the University of Luneburg in Germany. He has developed a performance-improvement system that works for all athletes and that can help riders to achieve balanced muscle groups and to influence the horse in a confident, relaxed, and elastic manner. The system is so effective that it’s been incorporated into the program at the German Academy for Professional Trainers in Warendorf. Here is a brief overview of the Meyners principles, followed by four simple exercises that you can use to improve your own body awareness, both in and out of the saddle. The system. Mr. Meyners’ system seeks to enable participants to regain freedom of movement and the natural mobility of the spine, joints, and muscles. The goal is to be able to use the body effectively and without negative tension. His system and corresponding exercises focus on six areas: head and neck, sternum and shoulder girdle, tendon and muscle reflexes, spine and sacroiliac joint, pelvis and hips, and legs. Before you try a new exercise, it’s important to do a baseline assessment (called a test) so that you can tell whether the exercise is effective for you. The process goes like this: 1. Perform a simple exercise (the test), paying attention to how your body feels. 2. Do a second exercise, which is designed to

Now sit forward on the edge of a chair and let your hands relax on your knees. Keeping your feet on the floor, move your hips from side to side eight to ten times. Now recline against the chair back and repeat the hip movements. Then lean first to the left and then to the right, again moving your hips. Return to the original position and “test.” Notice any changes? Exercise 4: The inner eye. The Meyners system recognizes the importance of the mind-body connection in athletic performance. In riding, fear and anxiety are two of the biggest roadblocks to learning and performance. Fear or anxiety issues involving basic safety need to be addressed with a knowledgeable, patient instructor and a safe and appropriCHECKING THE PELVIS: Busch demonate horse. other types of fear and strates the hip-rocking exercise anxiety, such as “show nerves” or overly self-critical thinking, can also hinder performance. The Meyners system helps to develop what Mr. Meyners calls the “inner eye”: an accurate, nonjudgmental mental picture of one’s performance strengths and weaknesses. From this calm mental state and self-awareness, a rider can use her strengths effectively and work to correct weaknesses without the crippling critical self-talk that can lead to tension and anxiety. Here’s a “mental practice” technique that you can use to help develop your inner eye: Sit in a quiet, comfortable place. Mentally shelve the worries and concerns of daily life for a few minutes. Take several deep breaths and feel yourself relax. Bring forward in your mind what you wish to learn (say, following your horse’s trot with your pelvis) or overcome (say, anxiety about what people will think if they see you bouncing around in the saddle). Engaging all of your senses, feel and see yourself doing what you wish to work through or learn as if you are actually doing it at that moment. The next time you get on your horse, go through your mental training; then try riding the skill that you rehearsed in your mind. See if you can carry what you “felt” in your mental training forward into the actual performance.

thighs) or their knees. to learn to sit with the desired low center of gravity, practice lifting your thighs away from the saddle for short moments and releasing your legs downward. novice riders tend to be tight in the hips and to ride with a too-high knee. However, a thigh that is forced too far down and back can rock the rider onto the pubic bone and crotch. Lunge-line work without stirrups on a trusted horse can help you to relax your hip flexors and lower your knees. tight inner thighs and buttocks push the rider away from the saddle and raise the center of gravity—almost “pinching” you off the saddle like a clothespin. i tell my students to make their muscles like wet clay or to “sit heavy.” other helpful images are to spread the buttocks or to widen the backs of the thighs.

For You and for Your Horse Although fitness is an asset to riding, merely being trim does not make one a good rider. i have seen horses move light-footed under some mightily “beer bellied” men because the riders sat and balanced well. i have also seen some petite, athletic ladies be a burden for their horses to carry, thumping their mounts’ backs with each stride. our sport is not about strength. if you’ve ever carried a small child on your back or a loaded backpack, you know how important it is to have a balanced, secure load—one that does not bounce or shift. Te same holds true of our horses. taking the time to master the sitting trot is not only a gift you give yourself for your entire riding career; it is a gift you give to each horse you put your leg over. s Karen McGoldrick is an award-winning freelance writer and a USDF-certified instructor through Second Level.

Te inner Game of Dressage Sport-psychology principles to help your riding By Jennifer o. Bryant Rider and clinical sport psychologist Jenny Susser, PhD, of Huntington, nY, introduced the 2010 USDF convention audience to the subject with her session, “Riding with Confidence: A Mental Approach.” Susser is well equipped to discuss the pressures and stresses of athletic performance: A former competitive swimmer, she swam on two national teams and took part in the 1988 US olympic trials. Sport psychologists coach their clients in exploring mental barriers to performance and then in developing strategies for improvement. As Susser put it, “i’m a trainer for your mind.”

Athletes, performers, and others have known for decades that the right mindset helps them to achieve their goals, but many equestrians are latecomers to the party. even some of the members of the 2010 US Alltech Fei World equestrian Games dressage team were new to sport psychology, as the field is known.

A greenhorn in any pursuit naturally lacks confidence. “Knowledge and understanding are the way to improving performance,” Susser said. Whether the subject is dressage or biochemistry, mastery begets confidence. Susser distinguished between selfconfidence and self-concept. Confidence, she explained, is task-specific: “i know how to ride a half-halt” or “i am a good driver,” for example. Selfconcept refers to our overall perception of ourselves. Athletes and others may need reminding that one poor performance does not make them losers or lesser people. Confidence requires a solid foundation and builds over time. it can also erode in the face of setbacks, such as the challenge of moving up to a new level or an injury. Tat’s why Susser calls confidence a continuous work in progress. Tat’s the first step. next, said Susser, comes the development of focus—the ability to direct your attention and thoughts toward the task at hand. She quickly debunked the myth of multitasking by asking the audience

members to pair up and then to simultaneously write the alphabet while giving the other person directions to the barn from home. Te truth is, we can think of only one thing at a time— and most of us don’t focus as well as we think we do, Susser said. Developing focus, like developing confidence, takes practice and is an ongoing challenge. What you focus on is as important as the ability to zero in on a topic. Practice replacing negative thoughts— “i’m so tired, i’m can’t possibly ride well,” “it’s chilly and windy, so i’m sure my horse will spook”—with positive ones that envision a good performance. elite athletes talk about honing their focus to the point that everything outside the field of play disappears and they see and hear only the performance arena. Developing that level of razor-sharp focus doesn’t happen overnight, but an improvement of just 10 percent will make a huge difference, Susser said. Realistic, concrete goals (Susser calls them “dreams with a deadline”) enable the confident, focused athlete to enact a plan for achievement. “A powerful goal allows great setup, intentional planning, focused practice, and appropriate post-competition evaluation,” she said.

s dressage devotees, we train, train, train: striving to perfect that shoulder-in or our own position in the saddle. Tat’s all well and good, but many of us neglect to train an equally important part of the equestrian equation: our brains.

Whatever your goals, make sure that everyone involved understands and supports them.

Do a reality check. Ask yourself: Why do i ride? Why do i compete? if you can’t come up with good reasons, then can you change something to make them more rewarding? When you ride and show, endeavor to “swim in your own lane,” to use Susser’s analogy from her sport. Meaning: Do your best, don’t try to imitate others, and don’t be concerned about how your rivals are doing. Most important, understand that developing confidence as a rider is a process that takes time. Forgive yourself (and your horse) for the occasional missteps. We tend to judge ourselves far more harshly than we judge others. Give yourself a break. s

Ready for the Big time Function looks to match form in this impressive youngster

t

his filly is showing at Dressage at Devon (PA), in late September, so she’s about two and a half. And for that age she looks mature and well developed, with lovely muscling over her whole body. She’s nicely proportioned, and everything connects smoothly, from her beautifully set-on neck to a back and hindquarters that promise the power and the push for the big, springy steps we want in dressage. it is seldom at any show that we see a young horse put together this well. Te filly’s lovely head shows a keen, intelligent expression. (Age two is when breeding classes first require a bit, and her trainer has wisely chosen plastic or rubber, making this new equipment easier to accept.) Her head-neck connection should make flexion and breathing easy, giving her windpipe plenty of room. Good muscling flows down the

topline of her neck and into her withers area. Tose withers aren’t yet as prominent as we’d like, but that’s typical at two, especially in a well-muscled horse. With time, i think we’ll see them come up and be ready to hold a saddle in place. Te good slope of her nice big shoulder and the angle of the line from point of shoulder to elbow will allow her front leg to come well forward. Behind the withers, we see a very smooth topline and what to my mind are ideal length of back and depth of chest, especially for her age. Strong muscling over the loin area flows into a well-shaped croup with good angles for providing power. At first glance, she looks as if she might be a little bit back at the knee. But as i study her more closely, i think the right leg’s shadow is fooling us about the left leg. She clearly has a big, well-muscled forearm; a well-shaped

knee and fetlock; and a pastern that’s long enough and angled enough but not too much. From what we can see, her feet appear well shaped. Te hind legs show well-formed joints and a good proportion between upper and lower leg. overall, she seems to have good bone and strong joints to support what will be a body with both elegance and substance. Horses that look good standing still don’t always live up to their promise when they move. But in this filly’s case, as best we can tell, function actually follows form. in this trot photo, taken at a nearly ideal moment (feet coming up, rather than descending), she shows us an uphill carriage and balance—and her neck looks even better than before. Many two-year-olds’ necks are a little on the short side, but hers is beautifully developed in shape and length, nicely connected to her head, and well set into her shoulder. She shows an easy reach that’s particularly impressive behind: obviously that left hind foot will land right under her center of gravity, giving her a lot of push. We get the impression that she’s covering a great deal of ground—confirmed when we see her handler’s feet: off the ground and flying! (He, by the way, is well turned out in an outfit that neither draws attention to him nor takes it away from the horse.) Her feet, which we can now see, are well shaped and an appropriate size for her age; feet tend to broaden out as horses mature. With one ear forward and one listening to her handler, the filly is attentive and staying right with him, which bodes well for her training fu-

ture. His hand, up but with the reins loose, is giving her freedom to use her head and neck for balance and to put maximum expression in her stride. And her tail—not up over her back or clamped tight with tension, but out and swinging—suggests she’s comfortable being a star in a big venue like Devon. Attitude, uphill balance, the strength in her hindquarters, her freedom in her shoulder and hip—everything says this filly has the full “dres-

sage horse” package. She looks like a winner, and her conformation and movement indicate she’ll continue that way. s USEF “R” sport-horse judge and FEI “I” dressage judge Jayne Ayers has been breeding Westfalen horses for dressage and jumping at her Hearthstone Farm in Dousman, WI, for more than 20 years. She has also been a member of the USDF “L” judge-education faculty since the program’s beginning.

t’s been a year since olympic dressage rider Courtney King-Dye fell from a horse, fractured her skull, and landed in a coma. Te incident sparked an unprecedented focus on protective headgear, which King-Dye was not wearing at the time of her accident. Since then, at all levels of the sport, helmets are becoming an increasingly common sight in the US dressage world. if you’re among the many who are ready to strap one on, we’ll get you
