member satisfaction, identifying members’ wants and needs, fnding ways to keep people interested and engaged in competition, and learning what would motivate noncompetitors to renew their USDF memberships. Te Membership Committee needs to represent all USDF members, regardless of membership type. At the BoG, the committee members successfully put forward a motion to clarify the purpose of the GMo Committee as serving and representing the GMos as USDF-afliated institutions by renaming it the Group Member organizations Committee. Western dressage. in the summer of 2012, the USDF put together a Western Dressage Working Group, with two goals. First, determine what role, if any, the USDF might play in the development of Western dressage; and examine some of the issues that could afect USDF. Recommendations would be made to the USDF executive Board. Second, although we believe that basic dressage principles can help to improve all types of horses, we recognize that there are fundamental diferences between dressage as we practice it (as based on the Fei defnition) and Western dressage. Tese diferences are problematic and must be acknowledged. As with gaited dressage, they could prevent us from assimilating Western dressage into our programs. However, those aspects of our educational programs that may be mutually benefcial should be identifed.

t what had to be one of the quietest Adequan/USDF Annual Conventions in the organization’s history, business at the 2012 new orleans meeting was attended to without much controversy. Te budget for fscal year 2013-2014 was approved. included in the budget is the inaugural US Dressage Finals, to be held this november at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. Te budget for the Finals is balanced-based budget, with projected revenues equaling expenses, meaning that there should be minimal cost to the USDF. At the same time, it should be as afordable as possible for the competitors and for all participants in the Great American/USDF Regional Championships program. Profts will be reinvested into the championships. At the 2011 convention in San Diego, for the frst time, the USDF Board of Governors elected representatives to fll three new at-large director positions. Te addition of the at-large directors to the USDF executive Board has proven to be very positive. in their roles as council chairs, they have facilitated better communication among the committees and the executive Board. Te board has defnitely benefted from their expertise. Membership Committee. For 2012, at my request, the USDF Membership Committee was essentially put on hold while a task force explored ways to revamp and revitalize this committee to make it more efective and responsive. Te Membership Committee Restructuring task Force held conference calls throughout the year and met in person at the convention. Tey have put forward some recommendations, including putting more emphasis on

Tink Globally, Act Locally National dressage organization or local? How about both?

F

or years, my mom subscribed to a well-regarded major metropolitan newspaper. one day, she mentioned that she’d dropped that subscription in favor of the local paper, whose journalistic bar (how shall i say this?) wasn’t set nearly as high. Surprised, i asked her why she’d switched. She replied, “i got tired of hearing people talk about local news that i knew nothing about.” As citizens, we need to know what’s going on across the country and the world; but we also need to know what’s happening in our own communities. Likewise, if you are a dressage enthusiast, you stand to beneft from supporting both the USDF and your local group-member organization (GMo). As a “big picture” organization, the USDF oversees programs dedicated to dressage education, recognitiion, and promotion. All of these are valuable, but let’s face it, they’re not necessarily happening in your back yard. Tat’s where GMo membership comes in. if the USDF is dressage on the macro level, then GMos are the micro level. GMos are your area stables, trainers, and dressage enthusiasts. Tey are your local network of dressage facilities, instructors, shows, clinics, and horse-minded friends. At the GMo level is where a lot of the actual dressage action in this country happens. if i want to fnd a clinic, research a trainer, buy or sell a saddle, enter a schooling show, or learn to scribe, i’m going to start with my GMo. Some dressage enthusiasts apparently regard USDF direct membership (participating membership) and GMo membership as an either/or proposition. i’m going to make the argument for both. Depending on where you and your horse fall on the skills and experience spectrum, you’re likely to be more

actively involved with one organization or the other. take the folks at my barn, for instance. Some are very active at the GMo level— competing on the schooling-show circuit and pursuing GMo year-end awards, among others. others are more keen on things like qualifying for Great American/USDF Regional Championships or participating in an “L” program. But all beneft from the eforts of both organizations, and so most of us carry both GMo and USDF participating memberships. i enjoy supporting American dressage, both macro and micro. i want to belong to an organization that’s a change agent for more and better dressage education, and i’ve been known to strive for a rider medal or two. But i also want to support the clubs that keep my local dressage wheels turning. And like my mom, i want to stay plugged in to the local goings-on (although, as someone who loves good journalism, i wish she’d kept the other newspaper subscription). enjoy this “macro” issue—USDF’s 2012 yearbook. Congratulations to our award winners! Your accomplishments are newsworthy indeed.

inside usdf Continued froM page 4 in new orleans, the working group reported to the USDF executive Board that dressage judges, instructors, and “L” graduates in many areas of the country encounter Western riders who want to do dressage. Te working group pointed out that there are both philosophical and rule issues involved; and that the USDF must decide what, if anything, it is willing to provide regarding Western dressage to USDF members, dressage judges, and GMos. As a result of the detailed discussion, the executive Board unanimously came to some core conclusions pertaining to Western dressage. Read the position statement on the USDF website (usdf.org/press/news). Instructor certifcation. Tere were changes to this USDF program on both ends of the spectrum in 2012. Workshops for the new trainingFirst Level instructor category were held, and the frst certifcation testing

was in november. in addition, the “Honorary instructor” category continues to be refned. At the upper levels, the USDF hosted Fei education Days as part of the continuing development of the new Fei level of certifcation. in my opinion, teaching and training dressage instructors has to be a priority for the USDF, and for the good of the sport. in the future, any young person going into this business should assume that he or she will need to be certifed. Te continued development of the upper level of instructor certifcation, and the goal of certifying all instructors and coaches, need to be our focus over the next few years. Sport horses.

correct fundamentals for sport-horse prospects to pave the path for their successful future under saddle,” as the program focus states. Tese sessions are designed to provide “an efective, solid, and consistent training method for starting sport-horse prospects.” Tis new program and the junior/ young-rider clinics are good examples of how the USDF is tying some of its educational programs into those ofered by the USeF. We are working together, not to duplicate eforts but rather to feed into the USeF programs. With each new “bridge,” we are getting closer to creating a real pipeline for the development of riders and horses. it’s a collaborative efort that should beneft those with dreams of reaching the high-performance level, as well as those whose aspirations may be less lofty but who want to establish a solid foundation in riding or in starting young horses. Regardless of the equestrian discipline, one of the fundamental lessons the USA learned from the 2012 London olympics is the need to create greater depth at the top levels. Te USeF as our equestrian national governing body and its afliate organizations must work together in creating pipelines for teaching riding skills, developing young horses, supporting American sport-horse breeding, and providing continuing education and certifcation for instructor/trainers and coaches. Te USDF has some good programs in place. now our job is to make sure that they continue to grow, be refned, remain relevant, and ultimately produce the results we want—whether it’s olympic medals or having a safe and enjoyable ride at home on a happy horse. While those two goals may seem worlds apart, in reality they have a lot in common. i want to close this column with a note of thanks to the USDF staf and to the USDF membership for your support over the past three years. i believe we have continued to build a solid foundation for the future and now are ready to take the next step. s

IT’S THE RULE: A helmeted James Koford warms up Rhett at the Dressage at Devon (PA) CDI

Fei-recognized dressage competitions, efective January 1, 2013. Tere is an exception for riders aged eighteen and up who are mounted on horses aged seven or older, and it has to do with the Fei’s distinction between “on the show grounds” and “in the feld of play.” For those competitors who meet the above age minimums, a top hat or bowler is permitted “in the feld of play,” which the Fei defnes as the following areas: between the stable and the warm-up area, in the warm-up area, in the competition arena, and returning from the competition arena back to the stable. All other dressage competitors must wear protective headgear at all times, including in the feld of play. All para-equestrian dressage competitors must wear protective headgear at all times, as well.

My horses: i have two. one is a broodmare. She has a weanling flly on the ground. Both of them are for sale. My premiere ride at oak Hill is a mare named Riga that’s six years old, and she is absolutely the apple of my eye. She belongs to oak Hill, and i belong to Riga. Tip: in working with young horses, have patience and let the horse make the schedule.

TRIUMPHANT SPIRIT: TBI victim Courtney King Dye (right) receives her award from FEI president HRH Princess Haya

Dye, as most dressage enthusiasts know, sufered a traumatic brain injury in a helmetless fall from a horse in 2010. Her life-changing accident and its aftermath provided the impetus for the formation of the Riders4Helmets organization and have spurred the adoption of rules requiring protective headgear in equestrian competition (see “Fei enacts Dressage Helmet Rule” above). Dye, a USDF-certifed instructor who now competes as a paraequestrian, has returned to dressage teaching and coaching.

ob title: trainer and Danish Warmblood breeder, oak Hill Ranch, Folsom, LA What I do: i start all the young horses. it’s probably only 60 to 70 percent riding. Te rest of it is management: coordinating people, working with clients, teaching lessons, making sure the health and welfare of the horses is taken care of. How I got started: When i was younger, i wanted to ride and didn’t have horses, so i would go around and ride whatever was available. Whatever is available usually bucks, bolts, runs away, or isn’t broke. Best thing about my job: Pairing a prospective buyer with a good horse.

A Classical Duo

D

Jennifer brYant; phelpsphoto.CoM

ressage trainer, instructor, and coach Sandy Savage is a USDF bronze, silver, and gold medalist in Wilton, CA. She has two favorite reads for riders: Pick 1: Te New Basic Training of the Young Horse by ingrid and Reiner Klimke (trafalgar Square Books, 2006). Tis is my all-time favorite book. it covers the Klimkes’ training practices from the young foal to the horse’s frst competition. Te methods they describe are classical and proven over time and always put the horse’s well-being frst and foremost. Following these guidelines should produce a well-rounded and happy athlete. Pick 2: Major Anders Lindgren’s Teaching Exercises: A Manual for Instructors and Riders by Maj. Anders Lindgren (Half Halt Press, 1998). Tis book is also written from a very classical standpoint. it starts with some general advice, then takes the rider systematically through each level, from training to Grand Prix, providing exercises to develop the horse. Tis book helps keep training sessions interesting. —Jennifer Walker

Breyer Releases Totilas model

rand Prix-level dressage competitor, early freestyle proponent, and sporthorse breeder Douglas Mankovich died november 9 in Bethesda, MD, after a brief illness. He was 54. Mankovich was perhaps best known in the horse world for his “Batman” freestyle aboard his Grand Prix partner, Rugby. He was a freestyle designer as well as a dressage trainer and clinician. He bred Hanoverians at his farm

in Virginia. Mankovich’s other great love was the sport of fgure skating. With his sister and ice-dancing partner, Karen Mankovich, he was a member of the US fgureskating team in 1978 and 1979 and competed in the World Figure Skating Championships in 1981— where the competition included the legendary torvill and Dean. He later became a well-known ice-dancing coach and judge.

Dressage Demo Celebrates Facility Opening at New Bolton Center

i

t’s difcult to evaluate a horse’s soundness in nasty weather and ify footing. As if to prove that point, dedication day for the new ilona english equine Performance evaluation Facility at the University of Pennsylvania’s new Bolton Center (vet.upenn.edu) was rainy and cold. But everyone in Kennett Square, PA, for the november 7 ceremony stayed dry in the 80' x 120' indoor arena. Te footing, selected by elizabeth Davidson, DVM, DAVCS, is MC ecotrack by Martin Collins, a blend of wax-coated sand, CLoPF fbers, and soft rubber. “We’re the only veterinary facility in this country to have this footing. only two other veterinary facilities, both in england, are using DEDICATION: Te it,” Davidson said. Westfalen pony stallion ilona english, a Penn grad and a breeder Popeye and rider Rebecca at her Summit Sporthorses and Sportponies, Cord were on hand for the Ringoes, nJ, provided the initial funding for indoor-arena opening at the project. english’s Westfalen pony stallion the New Bolton Center Popeye and rider Rebecca Cord entertained the audience at the opening with a freestyle to the sounds of “i’m too Sexy.” Additional plans for the project include holding stalls, an enclosed hard trot-up track and hard-surface lunging area, a diagnostic center, a procedure room, and a farrier clinic.

Award-Winning GMos Recognizing excellence on the GMO and regional levels

A

nnual awards recognize outstanding achievement within USDF’s group-member organization (GMo) community. Presented during the USDF Board of Governors assembly during the 2012 Adequan/USDF national Convention in new orleans, the awards honored outstanding regional volunteers as well as excellence in GMo media. Also recognized was Big Sky equestrian Association member Linda A. Priddy, of Billings Mt, the 2012 recipient of the Ruth Arvanette Memorial Fund Grant. Tis annual grant

helps a deserving group member to attend convention and take important learning and contacts back to his or her GMo. We congratulate all of the 2012 GMo award winners, listed below. We’ve published the winning photographs as well as selected judges’ comments.

Arvanette Grant Winner’s Convention Experience

2012 Ruth Arvanette Memorial Fund Grant recipient Linda Priddy with USDF president George Williams

The USDF Annual Convention was amazing. I learned so much by attending. I have always attended clinics and horse shows and not conventions, believing that they would not help me in any way. Boy, was I wrong. I learned what a professional organization USDF is. They care about the amateurs as well as the elite riders. I am so excited about the new rider tests. I think they will help boost amateur attendance. I also think it is great that they are working on getting all instructors certified. It showed me how hard they are working to improve the sport. It was wonderful to see how all the GMOs worked together and how everyone got a vote and was thus involved in the whole process. I learned a lot from the educational seminars. Everybody was so nice and friendly. When I got back to Montana, the weather was 10 degrees with snow on the ground; but even with the bad weather, I had an enthusiasm for riding because of going to the convention.

aybe it was the big easy’s “laissez les bons temps rouler” atmosphere. Maybe it was the fact that no major issues were on the docket for the board of governors (bog) assembly. whatever the reason, the 2012 adequan/USDF annual Convention in new orleans came of as a low-drama afair, with plenty of education and a more relaxed vibe than we’ve seen in recent years. here’s a pictorial “highlights reel.”

Faces and Places

new orleans’ attractions lured many convention-goers out of the Sheraton new orleans hotel and into the French Quarter and beyond. Te fun started with a welcome party at Michaul’s n’awlins Live Cajun Music restaurant, which true to its name featured a tight, terrifc three-piece band— occasionally accompanied by USDF members!

News and Notes

Tere was one somber moment during convention, and it came at the beginning of the bog assembly. tears fowed during a slide show honoring the numerous american dressage legends who passed away in 2012. but one bright note capped the sadness: the announcement that Dressage at Devon and Fei north american Junior and young riders Championships fxture Patsy albers will be remembered through the new Patsy albers award Fund. administered by Te Dressage Foundation, the fund will provide a grant to the highest-placing rider at the US high-performance dressage championships who is a former naJyrC competitor. Plans for the inaugural US Dressage Finals (usdressage-

fnals.com) are well under way. Te november 7-10 event will bring an estimated 300 horses to the Kentucky horse Park in Lexington, USDF president george williams said. USDF’s goal is to ofer $50,000 in prize money, he said. Te USDF Membership Committee will develop a member-satisfaction survey, spearheaded by USDF region 2 director Ken Levy. along with polling current members, the USDF must become more proactive about reaching out to former members and those who rejoined after allowing memberships to lapse, he said. Learning why members leave and what prompts them to return is important in determining what steps might be taken to improve retention rates and to attract more new members, he said.

Takin’ Care of Business Similar to the “pipeline” from the grass roots to grand Prix in dressage, there is a governance pipeline that starts with USDF and runs to the US equestrian Federation and the high-performance bracket. Some people are involved with governance in both organizations, and the USeF Dressage Committee holds meetings and open forums at USDF conventions, not only for convenience’s sake but also to solicit opinions and feedback from the USDF membership at large. but the core business of the USDF convention remains the committee meetings, regional meetings, executive board meetings, and board of governors assembly.

Education

Sessions on equine biomechanics, colic, nutrition, colic, joint health, core strength for riders, and gMo topics (many of which we’ve covered in this issue) gave convention-goers lots of practical take-home information. Tese educational presentations are always USDF convention

highlights. a special presentation this year was “Looking back at London,” in which competitor Stefen Peters, horse owner akiko yamazaki, and judge gary rockwell shared their memories of the 2012 olympic games, which ranged from funny to bittersweet.

“Low carb” may be OK for humans but not for most horses, nutrition expert says

GOOD CARBS: Forage remains a key component of the equine diet

44 February 2013 • USDF ConneCtion

DUSTYPERIN.COM

By JenniFer o. Bryant


iet and nutrition fads come and go. anybody remember the Scarsdale Diet? atkins? Low-fat? “eat for your blood type”? “Low carb” is a current trend, with some people eschewing breads, pasta, sugar, and other carbohydrates from their diets. and what we think is good for our own health, we tend to assume is also good for our animals, said emily Lamprecht, PhD, a dressage rider who’s the technology lead for consumer nutrition at Cargill animal nutrition, elk river, Mn, makers of nutrena. “trends in nutrition tend to spill over to the horse world,” Lamprecht said in her educational session at the 2012 adequan/USDF national Convention, entitled “Te Carbohydrate Conundrum.” “Tat, plus the fear of grain (starch) overload causing colic or laminitis.” a few horses have clinical metabolic conditions that require limiting carbohydrate intake, but “most horses handle carbs oK,” Lamprecht said.

D

Sugars are carbohydrates. So are starches, which are found in cereal grains. We tend to think of fber as nonnutritive roughage, but fber (such as that found in hay and pasture forage) is also an important carb, said Lamprecht. Starches and sugars are what’s known as nonstructural carbohydrates (nSCs), Lamprecht said. Plants store nSCs. When horses consume the plants, the nSCs are broken down and absorbed in the small intestine; and the fbrous portion is fermented in the cecum (the beginning of the large intestine) and in the large intestine. Te reason humans can’t get much nutrition from grasses is that we lack a cecum and the accompanying fermentation capacity; all we have is its vestigial form, known as the appendix, she said. Te equine is a nomadic grazer, with a digestive system that’s designed to process a nearly continuous small intake of primarily forage, Lamprecht said. a horse’s stomach, which can hold about fve gallons of material, is small compared to his size, she said.

What Is a Carb?

Other Sources of Energy

Carbohydrates are the body’s fuel—organic compounds that release energy when the digestion process breaks them down.

Protein has gotten a lot of attention in the human diet-andexercise world; but contrary to what many people believe, protein is not a primary fuel source, Lamprecht said. Pro-

Convention Coverage teins’ main role is building and repairing muscles and tissues, she said. Fats and oils, which are high in calories, are good energy sources, and “horses tolerate them well,” Lamprecht said. “But carbs should still be the basis of the horse’s diet.”

Choosing a Feed Te typical equine ration is forage-based. Terefore, start by having your hay analyzed, Lamprecht recommended. (your local cooperative-extension ofce is a good place to start.) Te analysis should reveal the calorie content, the type and amount of fber and nSCs, and the amount of crude protein in your hay, she said. Tere are two types of fber in hay: nDF (neutral detergent fber) and aDF (acid detergent fber). Hay that is higher in nDF is coarser and less palatable—not as nutritious but good “busy” hay for those easy keepers, she explained. Grass hays typically contain 8 to 14 percent crude protein; alfalfa and legume hays are higher in crude protein, Lamprecht said. not all horses need grain; some do fne on quality forage alone. after you have your hay analyzed, determine your

horse’s energy and nutrient requirements based on his activity level and body condition; then you’ll know whether he needs additional feedstufs. Dressage, Lamprecht said, is a fairly demanding discipline, particularly as a horse advances up the levels; that’s why a lot of dressage horses get concentrates as part of their diets. But which one should you choose? “Pick a feed appropriate for the class of horse,” Lamprecht suggested. Commercially manufactured feeds list a purpose statement indicating the type of horse (e.g., pleasure, performance, foal, broodmare, senior) for which the product is formulated. Use the purpose statement as a general guideline. Tere are practical considerations, as well: “Should you choose pelleted or textured—what does your horse like? is the feed difcult to handle in cold temperatures? Some feeds that have a higher moisture content can ‘brick’ or get very hard in cold weather.” Manufacturers aren’t required to list calorie content on feed labels, although feeding directions take calories into account. according to Lamprecht, most commercial feeds contain 2.8-3.4 megacals/kg. if you want specifcs, contact the manufacturer, she advised. again, use your horse’s weight,

body condition, and activity level as guidelines, she said. How much to feed? read the directions on the bag. and if you’re comparing prices, consider the feeding rates (recommended pounds per meal or pounds per day). you might fnd that a pricier feed is actually a better value because you feed less, Lamprecht said. a common feeding mistake, Lamprecht said, is not feeding enough senior feed. Tese products are designed to be fed in greater volume, she said, so read labels carefully. if you have a specifc feeding goal, such as limiting the carbs in your horse’s diet, you might need to dust of your math skills. to determine the grams of any nutrient intake per meal, use the following formula: Meal size (lbs) x % NSC x 454 = grams NSC per meal (Tere are 454 grams in one pound.) a typical ration for a high-performance horse contains 18 to 22 percent total nSC (forage + concentrates), needed to fuel his workouts and to replenish his energy stores, Lamprecht said. Finally, include supplements and treats in fguring out your horse’s total dietary intake, Lamprecht said.

Hay and Horse Health if your horse has a metabolic sensitivity, consult with an expert who can help you to formulate an appropriate feeding plan. Diferent conditions call for diferent approaches. For instance, “a PSSM horse is hypersensitive to insulin, while a horse with equine metabolic syndrome (Cushing’s disease) is not sensitive enough. Both need special diets, but for opposite reasons,” Lamprecht said. above all, don’t overlook the importance of hay and a horse’s environment as keys to equine health, Lamprecht said. “rapid fermentation of starches and fructans can produce excess gas and lactic acid,” usually caused by dietary or environmental changes, she said. Tis condition, known as hindgut acidosis, can lead to colic and laminitis, she said. “abrupt hay changes, not sudden grain changes, are the cause of most colics i see,” Lamprecht said. “take two to three weeks to switch hay types. People know they shouldn’t switch grain suddenly, but they don’t think about hay—and hay or pasture is 70 to 100 percent of a horse’s ration.” s

Cover Your Assets Insurance pointers for horse owners, farm owners, and instructor/trainers By JenniFer o. Bryant

PRECIOUS PROPERTY: Insurance can protect the value of equine facilities, horses, and horse businesses

48 February 2013 • USDF ConneCtion

For the Horse Owner an equine-mortality policy is life insurance for your horse: if he dies or has to be humanely euthanized, the insurance company pays the policy amount. in deciding whether to purchase a mortality policy, the horse owner must weigh premium costs (a percentage of the horse’s value) against how much it would take to purchase a horse of similar value out of pocket. in other words, as Dietrich put it, “is self-insurance an oK strategy? yes, if you have funds to replace the item.” Veterinary bills can be prohibitive, especially when hospitalization is involved. Here again, horse owners can miti-

hat is insurance? it’s a hedge against loss. By investing in an insurance policy, you’re essentially betting that you’ll sufer a loss that you couldn’t otherwise aford to cover. Te insurance company, by selling multiple policies, is essentially betting that its revenue will outpace the payouts when losses occur. Some types of insurance are mandatory, such as for motorists. others, including equine mortality, are discretionary. in a session at the 2012 adequan/USDF annual Convention in new orleans, equine-insurance experts Shawna Dietrich, Kathy Stringer, and Donna Meyer ofered pointers on insurance for the horse industry.


gate the risk of incurring crippling costs the same way that we help shield ourselves from catastrophic medical bills— through health insurance, or as it’s called for horses, majormedical or surgical or colic coverage. (Major-medical coverage is more inclusive; surgical or colic coverage reimburses specifc costs, not other kinds of veterinary expenses.) to be eligible to purchase a major-medical or surgical endorsement for your horse, you’ll usually be required to buy a mortality policy. Ten you can add the endorsement, which is a fat fee and reimburses covered expenses up to a set limit. (“Covered” is the key with all insurance-related matters: read all policy language carefully before you buy so that you understand exactly what is and isn’t covered, and up to what amount.) Stringer, of Great american insurance Group, discussed a recent related policy change by her company. Horse owners who purchase a colic or surgical endorsement (available for horses valued at less than $15,000) or a major-medical endorsement (for horses whose value exceeds $15,000) receive, at no extra charge, an additional $3,500 of colic coverage, she said. Te only exception would be a horse whose policy contains a colic “exclusion” (an advance denial of coverage, often for a specifed period of time) because of a past colic surgery entailing a bowel resection.

according to Meyer, one trend that may be making its way from the medical world to the horse world is co-payments—specifcally “co-pays for diagnostics on an equine major-medical policy,” she said. Te time during which a horse undergoes a change of ownership—particularly if the seller permits the prospective buyer to take the horse on trial—can be a tricky one for insurance coverage. according to Meyer, if a horse going on trial already has a policy, then the prospective buyer doesn’t need to purchase insurance for the trial period. But if the horse is not insured, then the buyer should bind mortality coverage “and probably also major medical” in the event the horse becomes ill or injured, or dies, during the trial period, Meyer said. and the day you sign the check, of course, the horse would no longer be covered under its previous owner’s policy.

For the Instructor/Trainer When it comes to teaching riding lessons or training horses, a primary concern is liability: if a student or a horse were injured (or worse) while on your watch, you’d want ample protection against lawsuits. instructors probably must name the farm(s) they teach at as an additional insured on their policies, according to

Convention Coverage Dietrich. (Te carrier she deals with requires all landowners to ensure that all independent contractors—visiting instructors among them—do so, she said.) Fortunately, adding an additional insured is not expensive, she said. if something happens that results in legal action, “the policy that pays out as primary is the one belonging to the party determined to be at fault by the lawyers,” Dietrich said. Te use of working students is a time-honored equestrian practice, as is the more informal arrangement of having kids help out in exchange for rides or lessons. Both have liability implications. Minimize them, Dietrich advised, by structuring additional activity by a volunteer as a lesson. a true working-student position is a business arrangement— instruction in exchange for work. an instructor should list any working students as such with his or her insurance carrier, she said.

What About Liability for Horse Owners?

H

orse people understand that equines can be unpredictable and potentially dangerous— but tell that to the ignorant bystander who gets bitten or kicked and is now threatening to sue. An applicable liability policy offers protection against such incidents, but some horse owners may not have one, according to equine-insurance agent Shawna Dietrich. One’s horse may or may not be covered under a homeowner’s policy, she said; insurance companies and policies differ, so check with your agent. As a benefit of membership, the US Equestrian Federation offers $1 million in excess-liability coverage for horse-related accidents or property damage, Dietrich said (more info at usef.org/documents/ memberPerks/EquisurePolicyInfo.pdf). (The coverage does not extend to equine-related businesses, such as boarding stables, according to Diane Lesher of Equisure, the policy provider. Those who run equine businesses need their own liability coverage, Lesher said.)

For Farm Owners and Show Organizers Meyer discussed forms of prevention—specifcally, prevention of lawsuits in which equine-related businesses are found to be at fault. She advises covering one’s, ahem, assets by taking proactive measures: Post a sign bearing your state’s equine-activity statute at the entrance to your farm. Post barn rules prominently.

Let’s say you’re a farm owner and a USDF group-member organization (GMo) wants to host a clinic at your facility. Both the GMo and the clinician should name your farm as an additional insured on their policies, Meyer said. Likewise, all independent contractors at a horse show or other equine event—including vendors—should be required to supply a certifcate of insurance, she said. Show organizers: inform your insurance carrier of all the activities planned for your event, said Meyer. Tat includes aspects that are not directly horse-related, such as food concessions and even the use of golf carts, she said.

A Keen Teacher Te story of Gurney’s most famous equine partner is proof that dressage success can be had without vast sums of money. Gurney, who taught special education for years before turning to dressage full time, bought the 17.2-hand Toroughbred gelding, Keen, of the track for $1,000 “because he was too big to ft in the starting gate,” she said. Te big chestnut was a huge mover with loads of dressage talent, but he was a pistol. “He was very sensitive, including about the way his saddle and bridle ft,” Gurney recalled. “He was almost too hot to handle on the ground. “Keen taught me about harmony,” Gurney continued— and “Harmonize with your Horse” is the theme of her nutrena/USDF adult Clinic Series. “We have an obligation to harmonize with our horses as much as possible,” Gurney said. to that end, in training Keen, she had to fnd ways to channel the horse’s hot tem-

But those riders and auditors who are lucky enough to participate in the 2013-2014 nutrena/USDF adult Clinics are going to be learning from a bona fde american dressage legend. not too many dressage professionals have literally done it all: won an olympic medal, trained and coached scores of horses and riders to Grand Prix, judged at the highest levels, bred successful sport horses, and served in numerous sport-governance positions, including as a driving force behind the California Dressage Society. Tat would be Hilda Gurney, 69, of Moorpark, Ca, whose Keenridge has been a West Coast dressage Mecca for decades. Te 2007 roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame inductee was on hand at the 2012 adequan/USDF national Convention in new orleans to share her history and outline her plans for the USDF adult Clinics.


perament and boundless energy constructively. years of patient training produced a partner who wanted to work with his rider, and Gurney’s eforts were rewarded when the pair won team bronze at the 1976 Montreal olympics. Te highest-placing US horse and rider, they were tenth individually. Gurney’s excellent care and training helped Keen to lead a long and productive life. Her horse, who is a fellow member of the roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame, continued to work and compete until a month before his death, she said. Gurney’s student Kathleen raine, now an international competitor in her own right, showed Keen at Grand Prix when he was 23, Gurney said.

Patient, Correct Basics During her convention presentation, Gurney showed video clips of assistants instilling correct basics in young horses through ground work, lungeing, and careful introduction to under-saddle work. Ten she showed a video demonstration of correct riding position. Her on-screen narrative

discussed how the rider follows the horse’s motion, correct hand position and stirrup length, and the use of the hips and core. Gurney’s clinics, one in each USDF region, will be held in a symposium-style clinic format and will include a lecture. riding participants must be 22 or older; auditors of all ages are welcome. For the schedule and for application and registration information, visit usdf.org/education/clinics/adult. you might assume that, after a lifetime spent in the saddle, the thrill has worn of for Gurney. But she lit up like a kid on Christmas morning as she shared video of her current mount, the new-to-Grand Prix homebred Wintersnow (Winterprinz – Lavinia). “i still love to ride my horses,” said the woman who still rides between ten and 20 per day. “i feel so lucky in my life to have such a passion. i work every day to try to harmonize with my horses.” s

O

lympian and 2013-2014 Nutrena/USDF Adult Clinic Series headliner Hilda Gurney may have learned about dressage from the ground up, but a new device that she discussed at the 2012 USDF convention gives new meaning to “riding by the seat of one’s pants.” Gurney’s Adult Clinics video previews included footage of assistant trainer Sean Cunningham using the Equisens equestrian balance sensor (equi-sens. com). The rider dons a pair of shorts-length pants that fit over regular riding attire. The seat contains a sensing pad that transmits feedback to a microprocessor controller contained in an outside pocket. A small vibrating motor sits on each side of the rider’s waist. When one seat bone is weighted more heavily than the other, the corresponding motor vibrates and an LED indicator illuminates: red for the right seat bone and green for the left. If the weight is even, the LED indicator shines blue. In Gurney’s video, the LED indicators made it easy to see how Cunningham’s weight shifted during lateral exercises. A mediocre half-pass ridden with the rider’s weight incorrectly on the outside seat bone improved instantly when Cunningham changed his position to weight the inside seat bone.

POPULAR DEMO: Te Equisens riding-balance sensor was a big draw at the USDF convention. Equisens developer Robert Feinberg coaches dressage trainer Jennifer Truett (OH) in the use of the product while fellow USDF members look on. Inset photo: Close-up of the unit and “overbreeches.”

L

ooking to relocate a bad-tempered parrot, Leroy “Bus” Fuller called Dreamcatcher Meadows, some 90 miles from his Vancouver home. “Tey said they’d take her; they take in all kinds of animals.” A few weeks later, “i said to my wife, ‘Let’s go see the parrot.’ We did—and ended up buying a horse.” Dreamcatcher co-owner Jill Giese showed the Fullers around. Besides sheltering displaced animals, she and partner John Dingle run a “full-service” equine operation: standing stallions; doing embryo transfers; raising, backing, and training the babies; and boarding/training clients’ horses. one unique angle: Te recipient mares—“the Girls’ Club”—are rescues, mostly of the track. Fuller, who founded Canada’s earls and Joey’s restaurant chains, ofered a donation. Giese said, “i’d rather you had something to show for your money. Why don’t you take a foal? i’ll pick you the best of the bunch.” Tat was Ballerina DMV. Te Fullers left her with Giese to raise and train. When they next saw her, three years later, “they were astounded.” Ballerina is a 2008 product of the Hanoverian breeding program started some years after Giese earned a law degree, moved to London, and discovered dressage—which she “eventually left my practice to pursue.” Giese trained with the future British olympian Carl Hester and got interested in Hanoverians. At her frst Verden elite Auction, she “purchased a three-year-old mare, Daisy D, and renamed her Dreamcatcher. A friend had bought a stallion, Dimaggio; i was able to get three breedings to him for embryo transfer from my mare.” (Bonus: “Te following year, he was World Breeding Champion.”) in 2004, Giese and Dingle “brought the mare and her three now-yearlings—our ‘foundation stock’—back to Can-

ada, bought a ‘redundant’ cattle ranch in a mountain valley, and gradually turned it into Dreamcatcher Meadows. one of those yearlings, Dreammaster DMV, earned his Hanoverian stallion license in 2011 on his competition record. Te other colt was sold and became a jumper. Te flly, Dreaming DMV, grew to eighteen hands and “has produced a remarkable foal each year,” Ballerina being her second. Also in 2011, matriarch Dreamcatcher received the Hanoverian Verband’s Lifetime Performance award; in 2012, she became the frst horse Giese had trained to Grand Prix herself. Ballerina, Dingle says, “has been a team player since birth, going along with whatever’s asked of her. But from my frst ride, i knew she had a gift. Te feel is like a surfer’s once-in-a-lifetime wave: euphoric, almost surreal; you never want to get of. And her temperament? Kind eye, warm heart, and massive ‘huggability.’” in a couple of yearling and two-year-old outings, Ballerina achieved “remarkable success in hand and under saddle,” Giese says. Her third year, she earned the Adequan/USDF Materiale Tree-Year-old Filly title. Meanwhile, to ensure Ballerina’s eligibility for recognized US shows, Fuller had invited an American friend, wintertime Arizona neighbor/golf buddy John Sharpe, to become a minority owner. Ballerina’s 2012 campaign wound up at the Fei FourYear-old Young Horse fnal near Chicago—“a heck of a journey,” Giese says. “She did a nice test, but a bit fat, placing eighth. Still, eighth in the country is pretty good.” For 2013, Giese hopes to qualify Ballerina for the european Five-Year-old Championships: a hope supported by Fuller’s saying the sponsors would back her going “all the way to Verden” if she does.

David Bowie MF


S

uccess runs in the family for “Davie”: His full sister, Duet MF, was one of two Traveling Trot trophy winners in 2011. Tis award is presented to the year’s highest-scoring dressage sport-horse breeding champion. Good breeding doesn’t always bestow good manners, though. owner Maryanna Haymon says, “He’s the frst colt in my twenty years of breeding that was born with a nasty little kick. At twelve hours old, he nailed me on my new hip replacement! And out in the paddock with his mom or with another newborn, he’d go bucking around. But at three weeks the lights turned on in his brain, and he became an absolute gentleman.” Since then, he’s developed a desire to please humans. “He knows where you are; he shows of for you; he comes to you.” Tat attitude paid of when showing season came along. Davie’s dam, Rotina, has shown in hand so many times that “she drags her toes; it’s hard to get a good trot when you’re showing her with a foal.” So Haymon decided to try something diferent. Before the Dressage at Lexington (VA) show, “we practiced asking him to trot without his mom while being ‘judged.’ And he did it. He’s that independent-minded, and he’s also that in tune with the people around him. He didn’t run away, didn’t get scared, even with me running after him with a lunge whip.” At the show itself, “he stayed with his handler all the way around”—and wound up foal champion. At Dressage at Devon (PA), the new skill proved valuable again. “Mom blew an abscess and could barely make it into the arena to stand still. So, in the Dixon oval at Devon, he again did it all on his own. even with a person chasing him, he didn’t break to canter; he had good elasticity, lengthening down the long side and showing some suspension on the short side.” Again, Davie was named foal champion. Haymon is aiming her youngster toward both a breeding

and a performance career. “We’ll start backing him some time in his three-year-old year, depending on his physical maturity. He’ll go through some of the Young Horse stuf; the Four-Year-old and Six-Year-old competitions are on the agenda”—but not the Five-Year-old, which Haymon thinks is “too difcult a test for that age unless the youngster has a spectacular trot.” Davie “will be presented as a four-year-old in both the Hanoverian and oldenburg registries. Ten he’ll go the performance route for his license, not the approval testing. And at six is when we’ll start looking to determine the best rider for him. Because with a stallion, it’s not just a rider training a horse; it’s a partnership—and pretty much an equal partnership, with the rider being ffty-one percent and the horse forty-nine. So we’ll be looking at personalities and who will get along best with him. “ As a yearling, the colt “has a serious side and a playful side,” Haymon says. “Tere are times when he’s trying to be King of the Hill around the other babies—so i know he has a stallion presence in there. i think what i’m going to like the most is watching him grow up, seeing if he meets my expectations, seeing if he can step in his sister Duet’s hoofprints or exceed her. i know i’m not going to be disappointed.” And about that name? Davie’s dam, Rotina, “had to be an ‘R’ because she’s a Rotspon daughter” but was actually named for tina turner, Haymon says. (She and her husband are both big turner fans, and Rotina’s four high stockings reminded them of the singer’s L’eggs commercial.) When her colt came along, Haymon needed a “D” name and wanted another music connection. Remembering that the singer David Bowie had been involved with turner for a while, “we settled on ‘David Bowie’ for the connection to tina turner.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Hot Black Chocolate


A

nneliese Vogt-Harber grew up in the family business, Atlanta’s Vogt Riding Academy. She earned USDF gold, silver, and bronze and German silver and bronze rider medals. She developed the Lipizzan tulipan neopol (a homebred) and the Hanoverian Advantige (her 1999 Pan Am selection-trials partner) to Grand Prix. And she took the school’s reins when her parents retired. But two years ago, after “going down center line for thirty years straight,” Vogt-Harber wasn’t enjoying showing as she once had. Still, with “a bunch of kids all fred up about showing with our school horses, i needed to go to shows.” “How about a new horse?” a friend suggested, and VogtHarber started looking. Last February, after three fruitless months, she clicked a link to yet another Youtube clip—“and said, ‘Whoa!’ Te mare it showed was compliant, beautiful, doing her job, nice gaits.” Vogt-Harber called, expressed interest, and asked that the vetting process begin. Hot Black Chocolate left Germany for the US on April 11. Te veterinarian in Germany, the broker who met the plane, and the vets at the USDA and local quarantines “all said, ‘She’s such a good girl!’” Vogt-Harber recalls. When “Choko” reached Vogt-Harber’s barn at last, the trailer door opened “and my hands shot over my mouth. She was even more beautiful than i’d thought.” Te mare stepped of, walked to her stall, “got down, rolled and rolled, then got up and looked at us as if to say, ‘Anything to eat?’ She is such a good girl!” Te next day, Vogt-Harber lunged Choko until “she crrracked her back and bucked and bucked and bucked. Ten i got on and she was all business, putting her head right in the bridle.”

By their frst show, Vogt-Harber had ridden the mare nine times. Tey did fne in the schooling ring. But just before they entered at A for their frst-ever training Level test, “somebody came running down the hill with paper in his hands—and we took of galloping. We got to the judge’s stand and i spun Choko around, saying, ‘i am so sorry.’ Ten i told myself, ‘Put on your big-girl breeches and go down that center line.’ it was a tense ride; she was totally green and behind the vertical. We got a 69 percent.” Before the next day’s test, Vogt-Harber decided, “i’m getting her poll up and getting her out there.” Tey scored an 81.6. “At that point, Horse of the Year never occurred to me. i just wanted to show the best Choko could do and make her breeder proud. [Her sire] Hotline was new on the breeding circuit, so people were going to be looking at him, and at her.” Te pair qualifed for the Great American/USDF Region 3 Championships at training Level. But Choko was “coming together so quickly” that Vogt-Harber decided to aim for First Level as well. At the Regionals, they won the First Level title with a score of 77 percent—what Vogt-Harber calls “the best ride i ever had.” For 2013, horse and rider are “already working with some Second Level stuf.” Vogt-Harber would “love to have us do some Young Horse work with Scott Hassler.”. “Choko is everything i thought she was going to be, and more,” Vogt-Harber says. “Judges who’ve seen me struggle with difcult horses tell me, ‘i’m so happy for you.’ And ninety percent of my tests say things like ‘a pleasure to watch’ or ‘wonderful basics; i can’t wait to watch the progression.’ “neither can i. i really want to see where she’ll go.” —D.

Dakota


A

t her north Carolina farm, Brenda Duet breeds two foals a year, does all the ground work with them herself (using “an abbreviated form of the Parelli method,” she says), and sends them to South Carolina to be backed by trainer Bill Calvert when they’re three and a half. (“He can call exactly what a horse is going to do.”) Calvert “usually keeps them about two months. Ten they go to be trained for showing—or, with fllies, they may come back to the farm for my breeding program.” Dakota was in the second group of foals born at the farm. Duet says that when she’d sent young horses to Calvert previously, it was “usually two weeks before he called me about them. But after getting Dakota, he phoned almost immediately, saying, ‘Tis one’s going somewhere. He has the ability to be a high-level horse.’” Dakota started his showing career as a four-year-old with young rider Holly Shook, whom Duet tapped when the trainer she’d planned to use had to step aside because of pregnancy. Te pair placed third at training Level in the junior/young rider division at the Great American/USDF Region 1 Championships and frst at both training and First Level in the Danish Warmblood Association awards. At year’s end, though, “Dakota seemed a little anxious,” Duet says. “Holly’s trainer, Diane Ritz, suggested taking him home to grow up a little.” Te horse spent two months in the feld; “then i rode him at the farm. At the end of the year, he was doing so well that i decided it was time to move on and move over.” So Duet sent him to rider/trainer Stacey Hastings—who was already working with his older full brother Montana—to bring out at First Level. “Dakota is kind-natured but also quite sensitive,” Hast-

ings says. “it would be easy to push him because he’s so willing—so i’m careful not to. i think that’s given him a chance to become stronger both physically and mentally. He’s very ft, and his basics are really good: His lateral work is unbelievable, his extended work is great, and he’s learning more and more to do self-carriage. Riding him, there are times when everything comes together so well that it literally gives me chills. i feel as if i’m riding him in third gear and there’s still more to come.” From the day word came that Dakota was leading at First Level in the Adequan/USDF Horse of the Year standings, 2012 was “absolutely unbelievable for us,” Duet says. “He had four open high-score awards; he had two ‘Born in the USA’ awards. At the Regionals, he was reserve champion at First Level. And he was frst at First Level open in the Danish Warmblood standings.” After the show season, Hastings took both Dakota and Montana to Florida for a month training with olympian Michael Poulin—whom she’s “worked with for about twentysix years now, starting as a working student.” She adds: “Tis is my favorite time of year: when the competition stops and i can focus on the training, without worrying about whether doing something new might confuse a horse just before a show. And Michael and i are on the same page.” For 2013, Hastings says, “i think we’re going to focus on more and more balance: hunker down at Tird Level and get Dakota stronger and stronger. once he’s fully in Tird, there won’t be anything in Fourth Level that he can’t do.” Duet agrees, saying, “Tere’s no ‘he’s got to do this; he’s got to do that’ plan. We want him to be able to tell us what he can do.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

H

is original KWPn papers say “Zorencio.” But “he’s such a high-energy, happy-go-lucky horse that the name never suited him,” says owner nancy Arend. “‘Zippity Do Dah’ fts him perfectly.” Arend found Zippity online as a three-year-old. Being “very analytical, i’d developed a matrix of the perfect amateur horse for me,” and his description seemed to meet her prime criteria. Her preferred age range had been between fve and seven, “but when you’re searching for a good horse and you’re on a budget—and most of us are—you know what you’re willing to give on and what you’re not. it wouldn’t be my frst time starting a young horse.” So Arend few to Belgium to see the horse. She found Zippity in the cross-ties: “bright and alert, ears pricked forward; not an ounce of shyness.” Te trainer lunged him briefy, then got on—and as they neared an open door on their second time around the arena, “Zippity made a sharp right turn out! nothing naughty; the opportunity was just there and he took it! Te trainer and i were both laughing as he brought Zippity back in.” eventually Arend got on—“and found that this green three-year-old had the most balanced canter i’ve ever felt on any horse.” His trot was bigger than she would have liked, “but the canter was so fabulous. Tat sold it.” Brought to the US, Zippity “showed a couple of times as a four-year-old, and he was great. Te next year, we started showing more seriously,” and the fve-year-old won the Adequan/USDF Adult Amateur award at training Level. After Zippity moved up to First Level, for a while Arend seriously considered selling him. “His trot was so big that i thought i’d never be able to sit it, and i didn’t want to

hold him back.” But several people encouraged her to stay with him—including the legendary German trainer Conrad Schumacher, who “took me aside at a clinic and said, ‘You don’t dare sell this horse. Tis is a great horse. You need to learn to ride this horse.’” Ten Schumacher helped her “learn to swing through my hips and absorb the movement.” At another clinic, US olympian Sue Blinks showed her how to “get Zippity to really bring his back up and carry me.” And her local instructor, Caryn Bujnowski (a Blinks disciple), has “been great in helping me to ride from my core muscles.” Bujnowski trains out of her own facility, Feature Farm. When work takes Arend out of town for multiple days (she’s a regional vice president for Georgia Pacifc), “Zippity goes to ‘Camp Feature,’ where Caryn keeps him using his core and working through his back.” For Arend, 2012 was “an absolutely solid show year. i love to show; it’s a time to hang out with my horse and with other people who love horses.” And it’s educational: “if you take the time to read the judges’ comments, there’s a lot to learn from them!” Looking to 2013, Arend says, “Tird Level—at least!— here we come. We’ve been working on Zippity’s changes, and they’re absolutely fabulous.” But she’s frm that he’ll move forward only as he’s ready. “We’ve progressed in a way that’s kept us both happy. Tat’s something i feel very good about.” Finally, Arend expresses appreciation “to the horse community for all the ways they help us riders”; for example, “to the people who run our local showing facility, Bonita Farm, for all the hours and dollars they put in on improving the facility and the footing. Tose people all own a piece of our success.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Aristo


i

n 2010, Carla Hayes wanted to fnd a successor to Luzifer, her late Grand Prix schoolmaster (and 2008 Brentina Cup reserve champion with her trainer, Kelly Casey). “He taught me a lot, and we had so much fun with him—and so much success.” Hayes’ criteria for a new horse: “athleticism, brilliance, a fne physical type, and Luzifer’s heart and mind and work ethic.” Hayes focused her search on europe, enlisting the help of Dutch trainer Bob tenwolde (recommended by USbased horse broker Lisa Wallace) and planning to make use of both the travel demands of her risk-management consulting/training business and the frequent-fier miles she’d amassed. “i could go to London, then on to Holland and see horses, and i could use miles for Kelly to go.” From their frst meeting, Hayes says, she and Casey and tenwolde “really hit it of.” Te trainer understood the Americans’ determination to stick to their criteria, and he took pride—and didn’t begrudge the time involved—in fnding the right match. Te search took a year, “and maybe six trips to see horses across europe,” Hayes says; yet it ended “ffteen minutes from Bob’s barn.” Te owner, a longtime friend, had acquired Aristo as a six-month-old and raised him with plenty of handling and afection. Knowing tenwolde, and hearing Hayes and Casey’s commitment to the horse’s career, may have made selling easier for her. Te fnal “package,” Hayes says, “was not just a fabulous horse but also Bob’s support with training.” So, while the horse was still in Holland, it was arranged that Casey would

spend time there, working with Aristo and tenwolde, over the next six months. Aristo arrived in California in January 2012. Casey rode her frst test with him in May. “Te judge was very supportive,” Hayes says. “Her message to us was ‘Don’t rush him; just let him develop. He’s going to be a wonderful horse.’ And that’s what we are going to do, because there’s no reason in the world for Aristo not to have the chance to develop the way he wants to.” tenwolde visits every few months to continue Aristo’s training. in between, Hayes says, “We’ve fgured out how to do video lessons with Skype and an iPad and Comtek. At an agreed time, we call Bob on Skype; then a friend of Kelly’s videos her ride with the iPad’s camera. one Comtek audio unit is clipped to the iPad and Kelly is wearing the other, so Bob can see and hear her and she can hear him.” Looking toward 2013, Hayes says Aristo “is schooling Prix St. Georges. We know he has a piafe in him already— and it’s so natural that Bob says, ‘Don’t do any more until we need it.’ We’re kind of thinking of Developing Horse; if he doesn’t do that, we’ll do Fourth Level/Prix St. Georges.” Casey adds, “We’ll see where he is when it’s time to show. We try to let him tell us what he’s ready for.” She adds, “Aristo isn’t just a fun horse to ride, but a fun horse to have around. He’s really ‘interactive,’ which is not always something you think of with a top horse. Tat’s special for me— and for Carla, too.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

B/GYn Kerrin (“KC”) Dunn frst saw dressage back in 1981, long before she could pursue lessons, “so i’m not the rider i would have loved to be. But i am a breeder”: one who wants to help the US “produce horses of international caliber.” Seven years ago, after Dunn heard that Sonnenburg Farm in oregon had imported Sizarma H, 2002 top scorer in the KWPn registry’s mare-performance test, “i kept checking their website. Finally there was a photo of an embryotransplant baby from her: Allure, a weanling flly with really long legs, a beautiful neck, and kind eyes. i was captivated.” Dunn “bought Allure without seeing her physically. Her pedigree was phenomenal, and something about her made me feel she was going to be special.” Allure lived in Dunn’s barn until age four, two years after the flly’s own frst embryo-transfer experience. Ten Dunn sent her to Vermont-based trainer elisabeth Austin, a twotime Brentina Cup winner, to start her under saddle. “Liz did an excellent job giving Allure her early training,” Dunn says, “but i eventually decided that my horse was just too far away” and brought her home. Looking for a more local trainer, Dunn found Angela Jackson in western Kentucky, about two hours away. Te German-born Jackson had extensive experience with young horses, including showing frequently in the Markel/USeF Young Horse Dressage Championships. Tat background suited her well to work with Allure and also with her ofspring. (Tere are nine to date, including a flly who’s one of only three foals in north America by Westpoint, the 2009 Six-Year-old World Young Horse Champion—and whose own frst two foals by embryo transfer are due in 2013.)

Allure herself is based at Jackson’s farm, which has an indoor arena. Dunn visits at least once a month, attends every show she can, talks with Jackson at least once a day—and “everything is videotaped. We both review the tapes; then we discuss them.” in 2011, the mare placed eighth in the Six-Year-old national Championships. in 2012’s Developing Horse Prix St. Georges Championship, Allure fnished tenth overall. After all the traveling Allure’s Developing Horse campaign required, Dunn and Jackson intend to make 2013 “a confrmation year: solidifying everything she’s learned up to this point. She’ll be competing at Prix St. Georges, i-i, and i-i Freestyle, and schooling Grand Prix-level movements.” to prepare for training Allure to those higher levels, after the 2012 show season Jackson spent three months in Germany with olympian Klaus Balkenhol. “Angela has competed a number of horses through i-i,” Dunn says, “but never trained one to Grand Prix. Working with confrmed Grand Prix horses at Klaus’s will help her be more comfortable training Allure.” Had the expense not been prohibitive, Jackson says, her ideal would have been to bring Allure along to Germany, enabling horse and rider to train with Balkenhol together. “But i feel privileged to have been able to work with Klaus myself, and the knowledge i have gained from one of the best horsemen in the world will beneft both Allure and me.” Back home, Dunn says, “Whenever Allure shows, people ask what we have in the pipeline. Being able to say there are three Allure four-year-olds for sale that are currently under saddle helps support her show career. i hope those youngsters will be out there competing soon as well.” —D.

or Warsteiner and owner/rider Heather Mason, winning their fourth joint Horse of the Year title was one major 2012 achievement. Another came back in the spring, when Mason learned that she’d been awarded the Dressage Foundation-administered Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize. Te $25,000 grant supports training to bring a horse-and-rider team to the discipline’s topmost levels. Lavell, Mason says, “was excited about Warsteiner because she’s judged him and seen him. in fact, it was her suggestion to apply with him for the prize.” Mason is using her prize to fund training with two experts, Lars Petersen and Alfredo Hernandez, focusing on Warsteiner’s in-progress transition to Grand Prix. She’d worked with both trainers before, “and they’re both very patient and understanding with horses and students, which is why we work well together.” in a past clinic, Petersen helped Mason to improve Warsteiner’s collection, she says. “He’s a very simple horse to ride, so it’s hard to add that little extra—because you hardly feel any need for a little extra. But Lars was very good at helping me to push through and ask for a little more expression, giving me a little higher goal to reach for. “With Alfredo, we were primarily working on the piafe/ passage,” Mason continues. “Warsteiner really likes doing piafe. He thinks it’s fun! He sits very well; he’s relaxed about it, but he really gets into it.” Fitting the training sessions with Petersen and Hernandez into Mason’s teaching and show schedule required some adjustment. “i prepared Warsteiner for the Festival of Champions, which he’d qualifed for.” (Tey won the i-i Freestyle.) “After that, i kind of stopped showing with him

and focused mostly on the training.” However, they did compete in three Grands Prix at local shows “to get him into the ring and give him some experience, so we’d have some things to work on over the winter, which is my training time. i think he’s going to make a nice Grand Prix horse.” Mason’s plans for 2013 are helped by the funds remaining in her grant. “We’re set to go to Florida and get some training there, preparing for the [2014] World equestrian Games selection trials. And we’re again scheduled to go to Lars in Pennsylvania for some work in the fall; it’s great to have more consistent time to spend with him.” At press time, Mason hadn’t pinned down competition plans for Warsteiner beyond Florida. “i’m considering the Developing Grand Prix Championship, but i haven’t come up with any ‘hard’ goals yet; just giving him some more experience” with the demands of Grand Prix. Back home, Warsteiner—the horse Mason bought at two and a half as a resale prospect—“is still king of the barn, surveying everything over his Dutch door. He’s his happy little self: very consistent from day to day, and a lot of fun to ride.” And at shows, he “still announces himself every time he comes into the arena, and he still talks during his class. He actually can piafe while talking; it’s been proven.” As for Mason herself, “everything Lars and Alfredo are helping me with, i’m passing on to my students. Most of the horses in the barn are now working on piafe/passage; we start them on it a lot younger, making it more of a game. i used to wait until horses were going Prix St. Georges/i-i, almost ready to move up to Grand Prix. But it’s easier when they’re young, with no pressure to put anything on quickly.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

enise Cole made the switch from hunter/jumpers to dressage back in 1988. Having “acquired a dressage horse named Amadeus,” she signed up for lessons at nearby Vogt Riding Academy—where her instructor was Anneliese Vogt-Harber, owner/rider of the 2012 Adequan/USDF training Level Horse of the Year (see page 60). Since that beginning, Cole has had a number of dressage mounts, each found for her by Hamburg-based Harald Cornelissen, an Fei-level judge, trainer, and competitor. “He’s my ‘eye on the ground’: somebody who can look at a horse and say, ‘Tat’s safe for Denise.’ As an adult amateur” who’s also the mother of three and the wife of a constantly on-thego physician, “i want a very safe horse.” Rock Star came to Cole’s attention after a neighbor, trainer Karen Lipp, went to Germany with a client to look at her; “they loved her, but they couldn’t get an agreement on the pricing.” Ten Cole “got a call from my contact in Germany; he said the horse Karen looked at was back on the market, and ‘you need to buy her.’” Cole then called Lipp, who agreed that this was a horse she’d be able to ride. With that assurance, Cole bought the mare. When Rock Star arrived at her new home, Cole says, “all i could think was ‘Tis horse is huge, and it’s a chestnut mare.’ Her gaits were big, and i was afraid to push her—what would i do if she exploded? if she reared?’” But Rock Star put Cole’s doubts to rest when “we went to our frst show and cleaned house. And it’s been steadily upward ever since. Tere’s a saying that ‘you don’t pick your horses. Tey pick you. Tat’s kind of how this feels.” in their frst six months together, the mare was “a little

tough to ride; she wasn’t as easy in the neck as i was used to. But it was just a matter of developing compatibility, learning to speak each other’s language.” And now? “She’s the nicest horse i’ve ever had in my life. ever. She never says no when you work her, she tries all the time, and she doesn’t get fustered. i never have to ride her of the curb; i can put her in the double bridle and ride her of the snafe. i never ride her with a whip, never have to go after her. Tere’s not a hole in this horse.” Cole’s earlier imports had been four or fve or six. But Rock Star was “nine, turning ten, and she’d been competing in CDis under then-assistant German olympic coach Jonny Hilberath, who trained her.” So “she was a PSG/i-i horse when i got her.” Te pair came out at Fourth Level, then moved on to Prix St. Georges. “in 2010, our frst year competing, we won the [Adequan/USDF] adult-amateur title at Fourth Level and Prix St. Georges; in 2011 we were third at i-i. She’s just gotten stronger and stronger.” in 2012, “every ride i had with her was good—and after all the scores came in, i felt as if i’d won an olympic medal.” in 2013, Cole says, the duo will probably begin focusing on i-ii and Grand Prix movements, “along with getting more mileage in Prix St. Georges and i-i at the small tour.” Tey’re already “playing around with ones, and she’s ofering them. i can close my leg and click, and she does twenty steps of piafe. i ask her to go into extended trot and back to collected, and she does it. But i won’t make her do anything she’s not ready for. Until she can do everything well at the i-ii, we’ll just stay where we are.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

t

he owners of a Colorado barn where “Whit” Watkins was attending a 2005 clinic had recently imported some young horses for sale. Watkins “wasn’t in the market,” but she took a look, then tried one three- and one four-year-old. Te three-year-old, Cipriani, “could barely hold a canter around the ring. But he just ft, like a comfortable pair of boots. We trotted around to where a roll-up door opened out to the parking area; he said, ‘i’d like to look out that door.’ i said, ‘no, i don’t think so,’ and he said, ‘oh. oK.’” (Te four-year-old? “He said, ‘i am looking out that door!’ And i thought, ‘Well, maybe not.’”) By clinic’s end, she’d decided to buy Cipriani, pulling together the funding with some help from client nancy Haywood. (“Tis story wouldn’t have happened without her,” she says.) Watkins brought Cipriani home to west texas, and “we kind of progressed upward.” in 2006, the then four-yearold was the Great American/USDF Region 5 champion at training and First Levels. in 2007, he was Region 9 Second Level and Second Level Freestyle champion; he also placed eighth in the Fei Five-Year-old Championship. in 2008, he was Region 9 Tird Level champion. But in 2009 that smooth trajectory hit a bit of a snag. With “some other issues going on, we just weren’t where we needed to be. We made the Region 7 championships and won the Tird Level Freestyle, but at Fourth Level we only fnished third.” After that show season, “we spent from november to mid-April of 2010 with [2004 olympian] Hubertus Schmidt” in Germany, Watkins says. “When we arrived, Hubertus asked where we were in training. i said i thought we were almost ready for Prix St. Georges. He watched, offered a little help, then said, ‘You know, i think you have a little more work to do.’” So “we worked really hard, and Cipriani improved and

improved and improved. We found gaits i hadn’t realized were in there. And i got stronger and better at understanding how to be more efective and less ‘in the way.’” Tey came home aiming for the Prix St. Georges-level 2010 USeF Developing Horse Championships—and earned some of Cipriani’s qualifying scores in California while working with olympian Hilda Gurney, who has mentored Watkins since 1987. Despite a tiring three-day drive to the hot, humid championships site near Chicago, Watkins says, “We did pretty well in the Tursday warm-up and came second in the Friday preliminary round.” even with a day of before their next class, “on Sunday, though i don’t know why, we both were really tired. We did oK, fnishing ffth; with our Friday score, we were third overall. But it wasn’t the ride i would have wished for.” Te next spring, the pair showed a little in Florida, then returned to Germany and spent April to December with Schmidt. one goal—helping Cipriani move up to Grand Prix—was easier there thanks to the availability of the Short Grand Prix and the German Young Horse Grand Prix tests, both “very doable for horses getting their feet wet in Grand Prix.” Home again, Cipriani “did pretty well in Grand Prix,” getting a 71 percent in one test—“but his scores at i-ii were more consistent.” He also qualifed for the frst-ever Developing Horse Grand Prix. However, as that entry deadline approached, Watkins says, “i was thinking, ‘Chicago heat, long drive, expense . . . ’” She decided not to go, and instead to “focus locally,” confrm Cipriani’s learning, “and aim to come out in 2013 with a little more emphatic Grand Prix presence.” Watkins describes Cipriani as “the horse i always felt i deserved. i got on and we were on the same wavelength.” Besides, “Down the line, he’ll be the right age for my Century Club ride.” —D.

ungarian ex-cavalry ofcers at a hunt club in toronto were then-schoolgirl Debi Voigt’s frst riding instructors. Tey “were very insistent about dressage; you had to learn to ride correctly.” By the time Voigt got a horse of her own—“an of-the track Toroughbred mare”—she was nineteen, and dressage was not an interest. instead, “i did some eventing and a lot of jumping.” Years later, though, “when i got older and really couldn’t jump any more,” she came back to dressage—“and that background and understanding served me well.” By then, Voigt had been away from riding for several years, but her daughter was “doing the hunter/jumper scene.” Ten the daughter’s mare colicked; and by the time the horse was ridable after surgery, the daughter had gone of to college. So mom took on the job of post-op reconditioning for the somewhat spook-inclined mare “and was pleased to fnd that ‘Hey! i can still ride!’” eventually, Voigt decided that “i wanted a nice horse of my own—one that actually liked dressage. So i started looking, calling people, getting videos. Te horse would sound perfect; but then i’d see the video and think, ‘Tat’s not the horse you described!’” Meanwhile, at the mare’s barn, Somerset Farms, owner Kim Lampert and trainer Petra Warlimont had just started importing horses from Germany for resale. Voigt remembers, “When they got Rohmero, or ‘Romeo’ around the barn, Petra talked to me briefy. i said, ‘oh, no. i want a schoolmaster, an older horse’—Romeo was four—‘something taller, something really narrow, and something that doesn’t spook. “Finally Petra talked me into at least trying him. i did, and i went, ‘omigod! He’s awesome.’ Petra said, ‘Well, he does spook.’ “i rode him again, something scared him, and Petra said,

‘oK, that’s his worst spook.’ i said, ‘Tat’s a fraction of what the mare does.’ So i bought him.” initially, Voigt says, “Petra thought Romeo would be able to do Tird Level, maybe up to Prix St. Georges; i wanted a horse that could learn the changes and pirouettes.” owner and trainer began taking the horse to shows just “to get him comfortable being of the property, and to give him some experience. But every year we showed him, he just got better and better. And Petra would say, ‘Tere’s a lot more in here than i thought.’” Warlimont agrees that neither she nor Voigt “ever thought Romeo would make it as far as he has. But once in a while i’d ask for a little more collection, he’d bring out this huge gait, and i’d ask myself, ‘Where’s this coming from?’ He just worked his way up”—to the point that, this year, “Debi was kind enough to let me try for the Developing Horse Grand Prix title”; they fnished third. Romeo is “only the second horse i’ve brought to Grand Prix; it was awesome that she let me do that.” Romeo is “a horse that i know will get better,” Warlimont says, “but he’s Debi’s horse. i felt sad when she said, ‘Look, i really want to ride my horse,’ but i totally understand.” So “my goal is to help her have a horse she can enjoy. He’s not a Grand Prix schoolmaster yet: not in the frst year of Grand Prix and i-ii. But i would like to get him more steady in his piafe and passage so she can start playing with those things—and so he will become a Grand Prix schoolmaster for her.” Voigt appreciates that “Petra’s trying to help me feel comfortable with Romeo at a level where he’s more collected. Right now, for me, it’s kind of scary; there’s a lot of power there, and i’m saying ‘What do i do with this?’ But he does like to ofer what he knows: ‘Hey, mom, look what we can do!’” —D. J.

W

hen an unsolicited video from respected German trainer Ulrich Kasselmann landed on then-US dressage coach Anne Gribbons’ desk in 2011, she watched it, then forwarded the disc showing nine-year-old Legolas to olympic competitor Ravel’s owner, Akiko Yamazaki. Yamazaki “wasn’t horse-hunting,” she says, “but we were planning to retire Ravel after the 2012 Games.” She watched the video, then passed it to Ravel’s trainer and rider, Steffen Peters—who was “ordering a plane ticket to Germany maybe ffteen minutes after seeing it.” in his tryout, Legolas impressed Peters as “a very sensitive horse, but also kind, with so much willingness. Uli had taken it very easy with him,” training up the levels but riding him just for pleasure. only the talent Legolas showed in starting Grand Prix work persuaded Kasselmann to send Gribbons the video. Te frst day Yamazaki saw Legolas, several weeks later, initially “the changes were a little difcult,” Peters remembers. “But they kept getting better. By the third day, he was doing nine one-tempis. i felt he was the type of horse who would work, and Akiko agreed.” Still, before deciding to buy Legolas, Yamazaki and Peters wanted to feel reasonably sure he “had a chance to be in the top ten. So we sat down and did an exercise defning scores we’d want in diferent movements. We concluded that he could get at least a 75.” Legolas arrived at Peters’ barn “a couple of days before Christmas—probably the best Christmas present i ever had.” Ten the horse’s education resumed. “He was far from confrmed at Grand Prix, but he came along a lot better than i expected,” he said. in their frst show, about a month later, Legolas fnished second in a CDn, scoring an 80.213 percent (behind Ravel’s 80.426). He went on to place frst in four CDis, then won both the USeF Grand Prix national Championship

and the olympic selection trials (for which Ravel had a bye). Meanwhile, Peters continued working with Legolas on Grand Prix movements. “Te changes were still a bit difcult: He did them, but he constantly anticipated in the twotempis and frequently in the one-tempis. And if we tried more than once or twice in a day, he would get nervous and his overall canter quality would diminish.” With the London olympics looming, the possibility that Legolas might be called on to “sub” for Ravel created “a tremendous amount of pressure,” Peters remembers. “But i said, ‘Tis horse needs time. even if he has to go to the Games, i’m not going to change anything and interfere with his confdence.’ So we stuck to our plans.” And the call never came. Since the olympics, Peters’ major focus with Legolas has been “improving the canter quality. His collection is very easy; the pirouettes have improved nicely, the zigzag halfpasses have improved, and i can ride him a bit more forward in the changes, which are also getting straighter. And his trot work at piafe/passage and his walk work seem to be quite solid.” Legolas competed in two more 2012 shows, scoring “a little over 79 percent in both.” Peters says: “Tose were our last two ‘college games.’ now we’re ready for the ‘nFL’, starting at the [Global] Dressage Masters show in Florida.” From there, plans include time in europe: some training at Kasselmann’s, a CDi in April, and two major shows, Wiesbaden in May and Aachen in June—all looking toward the 2014 World equestrian Games. “We can’t just play the game at home. We have to play it abroad: to know where we are in regard to the standard in europe, and to measure up to that standard.” Yamazaki (for whom the now-retired Ravel has become “my favorite trail horse”) agrees—and adds, “i’m really glad we found Legolas. Te timing worked out perfectly.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Te Best teacher An unlikely horse proves an ideal dressage instructor By Meris Greges

i

am often asked why i decided to pursue dressage with my Paint Horse, Flash. People tend to assume that i was a Paint enthusiast who discovered dressage, but the opposite was actually the case. My long-term riding goal is to ride at the Fei levels on a horse i trained myself. ten years ago, i was looking for a horse with the potential to go up the levels. A newlywed working on my master’s degree, i did not have the funds to purchase a warmblood.

dumped me many times. He had no trouble jumping the pasture fence or running people over. When tied, he pulled back. He would not load in the trailer. Giving him a bath was quite a battle—not ideal for a horse with so much white. But when Flash was three, i took him to a clinic with my dressage instructor, who said, “You need to keep this horse; he will teach you how to ride.” it took Flash a long time to achieve seemingly simple things. it was frus-

clinics, scribed at shows, attended lectures, and took opportunities to be a demo rider. i stuck with my instructor’s system, and steadily Flash improved. Te three strides of “nice” grew into a full 20-meter circle, then ultimately a fveminute test. eventually i introduced the double bridle, mediums, extensions, half-pass, pirouettes, fying changes, and tempis. one day someone called him an upper-level horse. i thought, really, Flash? Suddenly, after nearly seven years, i was sitting on an upper-level horse that i had trained from the very beginning. We are still training hard, and i am excited to see what the future will bring. Looking back, i realize that Flash was the perfect model to teach me how to train a dressage horse. impulsion, suppleness, and collection do not come easy for him, and that has forced me to learn skills and techniques to overcome his conformational challenges that i might not have learned otherwise. it is neat to see how dressage training has made Flash more sensitive, supple, elastic, and confdent. i believe in the saying “Dressage is good for every horse, but every horse is not good for dressage.” People and horses have physical limitations that should be respected. But the pedigree is only part of the equation. i am lucky that circumstances forced me to think outside the box. Flash has surpassed my wildest expectations and has taken me with him. i love it when i’m asked what kind of warmblood he is, and i proudly reply that he is an American Paint Horse. s

instead, fguring that this horse would be a stepping-stone to my “real horse,” i set out to fnd a sound, afordable young horse of any breed with three pure gaits. i purchased Flash, a Regular Registry American Paint Horse Association gelding, as an unstarted two-year-old. When i started him under saddle, he had a good buck and

trating for me to see other riders take their horses to shows and move up the levels while i was working on getting the correct lead or preventing him from breaking gait. it took me years to get him reliably on the bit. i set specifc short-term goals and focused on accomplishing them—not an easy task with once-a-month lessons. i videotaped my lessons, read books, audited

of “professional”) and those who don’t. A number of our best educational programs are available to all. Te “L” program is a prime example. Te instructor/trainer Program workshops are another. Just as adult amateurs run the full spectrum, so do professionals. not every professional dressage trainer drives a luxury car, demands high fees, and rides fancy horses. nor does every adult amateur work nine to fve and ride in the evenings. And that is the conundrum. Te difculty is: how to design programs for a “one size fts all” professional or amateur? Furthermore, we can’t assume that everyone competing in the open division is a professional. People compete in the open division for a number of reasons. one of the challenges we face is to create a roster of programs that meet the needs, expectations, and desires of both adult amateurs and professionals. Similarly, we must balance the needs of adult members with those of the youth. Tere is no doubt that amateurs are the backbone of our sport. We need to hear directly from our members who are adult amateurs. We need to listen to your ideas as to how the USDF might better serve you. i look forward to working on these issues together with you and with the Adult Amateur Dressage initiative. After all, in the end we have one common bond: our love of our horses and the harmony that we seek to fnd with them through dressage. s

dult amateurs in equestrian sports are fnding their voice. Te hunter/jumper riders have formed the Amateur Rider Association of America. in the dressage realm, a passionate group of enthusiasts has come together through Facebook to create the Adult Amateur Dressage initiative. i feel this is a very healthy development for our sport, and i welcome their input as well as their questions. it is important to keep in mind that the term “adult amateur” is a membership designation, used by the US equestrian Federation in all breeds and disciplines. Te USeF Rule Book defnition of adult amateur is quite strict, and the USeF takes an active role in monitoring and enforcing those rules. Te USDF does not have its own membership designation for adult amateurs, although it does of course record the scores and placings from all USeF-licensed dressage competitions. From that data, we can get a sense of how many adult amateurs are competing. For instance, the Great American/USDF Regional Championships ofer open, adult-amateur, and junior/young-rider divisions. in 2012, the open and adult-amateur divisions were similar in size, with 42 percent and 38 percent, respectively, of the riders in those divisions. Jr/YR entries made up the other 20 percent. For competitors seeking greater challenges, the next logical step from the Regional Championships is the upcoming US Dressage Finals, presented by Adequan. For the frst time, adult amateurs will have their own national head-to-head competition. outside the competition arena, the USDF does not diferentiate between adults who earn money from teaching and training (the USeF defnition

from one who knows: it could be more often than you think.) in another coincidence, having been working on teaching Miss Dee to respond promptly to light leg aids, along came author and clinician erik Herbermann’s latest essay, “Te Art of ‘tuning’” (“Clinic,” page 24). erik shares valuable insights on the art of “animating” the horse calmly and with great clarity, and never out of anger. i particularly enjoyed his observation that a tense, “rushy” horse may actually need a bit of motivation after all that good basic dressage training and relaxation percolate through. What you’re left with is a horse that no longer quickens in response to everything (leg, seat, sights, sounds, life itself) but that still needs to learn a correct, tensionfree response to the leg aid. i’ll close this column by mentioning two other stories that may resonate with your own horse life. Many of us are striving to lead more eco-friendly lifestyles, and so i hope you’ll get a few ideas from “Greener Acres” (page 32), which looks at ways to make your dressage facility more sustainable and environmentally conscious. And knowing that some of you are champing at the bit to give the new dressage rider tests a try, don’t miss “Te Judge’s Box,” in which Jayne Ayers explains how they’re judged and why they’re diferent from standard dressage tests. Happy spring!

ccasionally i get asked whether i fnd it difcult to come up with story ideas for this magazine. to which i respond: LoL! Seriously, as long as i remain a dyed-in-the-wool dressage enthusiast, how could i ever run out of training, showing, horse-care, and horse-health challenges, er, ideas? Which is to say, my horse life and my riding are one giant idea factory. in the publishing world, some topics are considered “evergreen”—so timeless that they need to be revisited frequently (think weight-loss articles in women’s magazines). in our sport, articles on saddle ft are the equivalent of “thin thighs in 30 days.” As i was working on this month’s issue, my instructor mentioned that our saddle ftter was coming to the barn. Did i want my saddle checked? i hesitated. Miss Dee’s physique has transmogrifed so rapidly in the two years i’ve owned her that my saddle (which was bought and ftted expressly for her, mind you) has been refocked and tweaked no fewer than four (or is it fve? i’ve lost count) times. What more could possibly need to be done? You already know the answer, of course. Yes, i had the saddle checked; and yes, it got yet another makeover. Tis time, thanks to “popped” withers and a stepped-up workload, the tree had to be narrowed. not that things were terrible before (they weren’t), but Miss Dee is moving a bit more freely forward in her reftted saddle, and my balance point feels a tad more in sync with her center of gravity. All this happened while our story “Keep Your Saddle in Shape” (page 38) was in the works. it’s about—you guessed it—the importance of regular saddle-ft checkups. in it, our experts explain what adjustments can be made and ofer guidelines for determining when to call out the ftter.

member connection Sport Ponies Tank you for your wonderful story “Pony Power” (December 2012/January 2013). it’s great to see these superb smaller athletes in the spotlight. Many American riders think they still have to go to europe to fnd talented ponies for dressage and eventing, but that simply isn’t true any more. American breeders are producing some fabulous small horses. For example, a weanling colt named Phenix from Jovee Farm in Browns Summit, nC, won reserve champion in the 2012 Adequan/ USDF All-Breeds competition for iSR/ oldenburg Colts/Geldings of Current Calendar Year. only 50 inches tall at six months, Phenix (Popeye – Clanfair Mary Kay) stood up to the full-sized horses at Dressage at Devon (PA) and won handily at Virginia Dressage Association shows. Another Jovee Farm pony colt, Carews (Chicco B – Jesse), fnished the year in third place in the Adequan/ USDF iSR/oldenburg two-Year-old Colts and Geldings division. Tese ponies are held to the same standards of conformation, type, and movement as the horses at the iSR/oldenburg inspections, and they are all judged together in the breeding classes. By carefully crossing the best German sport-pony lines with Welsh, Toroughbred, and other proven performance ponies, American breeders can produce great little horses that can hold their own on the Fei stage. Anyone looking for a pony prospect should check out the American breeders frst! Sarah Blanchard Raleigh, NC

Rider Fitness i read Ms. Bryant’s piece on rider ftness (“Ringside,” December/January) with a great sense of identifcation. Although i have never really viewed myself as unft, i did not realize how much increased strength would improve my riding until my other hobby,

scuba diving, required that i be able to lift heavy weights. Suddenly, things like letting my legs really hang down and letting the weight into my heels became, not things i had to force myself to do, but things that came naturally. Sitting straight when the horse wanted me to sit crooked came more easily, too. i don’t think a lot of riders realize how much easier things will be if they are just simply stronger. i know i didn’t. Apparently Ms. Bryant didn’t, either. Great editorial! Lynne Flaherty Woodinville, WA

More on “Ordinary” Horses

i was also at the Region 1 nutrena/ USDF Adult Clinic, and i completely disagree with the comment that the clinic was not geared appropriately to amateurs with ordinary horses. Te clinic organizers did a fabulous job of fnding horses that represented all of the levels in dressage, from four years old to Grand Prix. Te majority of the horses were, in fact, owned by their riders; and they represented all breed types, from Connemara cross

i recently got the December/January issue and read the letter regarding the nutrena/USDF Region 1 Adult Clinic (“Member Connection”). Tis is one of my problems with the USDF. i feel that it is for the upper levels, despite the many people who are just starting out. At clinics i have yet to see an amateur rider on an ordinary $2,000 horse. How does one deal with problems on ordinary horses? How does one get the most out of the horse they have and love when they are not the perfect mover? Tese are issues that i go to clinics to learn about, but they are not addressed. Another example is the article “Pony Power.” i loved it, but again it was $-centered and out of the ordinary rider’s scope. Norma Meakes Monmouth, OR While making up a large portion of entries at shows, the adult-amateur rider is virtually ignored by the USDF. Although fnding a promising junior rider or the next olympic representative is certainly a worthy goal, it tends to trivialize the thousands of riders schlepping along on our less-thanperfect horses, trying to make ourselves and our horses better. Clinics do tend to be geared to upper-level riders, judging by the expense alone. We know we’re never going to be short-listed for

Corrections

n “Gribbons Steps Down as US Dressage Technical Advisor” (“Heads Up,” December/January), we incorrectly stated that FEI 5* judge Anne Gribbons had been slated to officiate at the 2012 Olympic Games. It was in fact the post at “C” at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games that Gribbons gave up in order to assume the technical-advisor position. A trainer of 2012 Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame inductee Michael Poulin was misidentified in December/January’s “Historical Connection.” Poulin studied with Captain Alejandro “Alex” Solorzano.


and Quarter Horse to Friesian and warmblood. Te goal of the clinic was to show us the importance of the dressage training scale as it applies to all horses at all levels. Te training scale is meant for every horse, regardless of type. it does not discriminate among breeds. nor is it exclusive to professionals versus amateurs. it is our job as dressage riders to strive to learn as much as we can how to ride our horses up the pyramid correctly at each level and in each movement. every horse struggles with rhythm, suppleness, contact, and so on at some point. it is important not to get caught up in how one horse or rider compares to another, but instead to focus on what tools they were given to rectify a training dilemma, and then to take those tools home to apply to our own horse that might have similar dilemmas. in following the true spirit of dressage, every horse and rider can move from “ordinary” to extraordinary. Lisa Dickman Virginia Beach, VA

Breeder Recognition My mare, Weltdancer, and i served as the photo models for the “Clinic” article in the December/January issue. i noticed that Dancer’s breeder, Mary Lou Winn, of Home Again Farm, Waldo, FL, isn’t mentioned. i feel it’s important to credit her, especially since she has bred other top-ranking Hanoverians in the country. My success would not have been possible without her! Jessica Morgan Columbia, CT

Regional Championships in response to Jo McCracken’s letter asking for Great American/USDF Regional Championships that consist of just championship classes and therefore are smaller shows, i have to agree with her (“Member Connection,” December/January). Te Region 6 Championships is now a four-day show. Besides the Regional Championship classes, the show includes a northwest Dressage Championships as well as open classes. Tis show expanded from three to four days a couple of years ago.

he late dressage Paralympian Jonathan Wentz was honored with the Becky Grand Hart trophy, for his outstanding international 2012 year, at the 2013 Pegasus Awards banquet during the US equestrian Federation national Convention in January.

SADLY MISSED: Jonathan Wentz and NTEC Richter Scale at the 2012 London Paralympics

Wentz, who realized his dream of competing in a Paralympic Games last year, was the highest-placing US dressage competitor in London. He missed medaling in the Grade ib individual test by one place. Te dressage and para-dressage communities were shocked to learn of Wentz’s death of cardiac hypertrophy of unknown etiology just two weeks after the 2012 Paralympics. Wentz’s parents, James and tina Wentz, accepted the USeF trophy on their son’s behalf. “Jonathan would have been thrilled and honored to receive this award,” tina Wentz said. “one of Jonathan’s greatest hopes was to be recognized as an elite, dedicated athlete who excelled in his sport. He never thought of himself as disabled and certainly didn’t want others to view him in those terms.”

Dressage Documentary Trailer Premieres at World Dressage Masters

t

he audience at the World Dressage Masters Palm Beach (FL) on January 26 was treated to the premiere of a documentary-flm trailer featuring a blind dressage horse.

Trough interviews with Sassoon, Lyons, Poulin, and others, Valiant: Life Is a Horse will share Valiant’s story and the many life lessons that his owner and rider learned along the way. According to the flm’s website,

CLEAR VISION: Jeannette Sassoon and her blind dressage horse, Valiant, at the USET (now USEF) Dressage Festival of Champions

Te titular character of Valiant: Life Is a Horse is a 26-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding who became completely blind following complications from an infection. owner Jeanette Sassoon retrained her horse and eventually was able to compete Valiant in dressage up to the Fei levels. Along the way they worked with such respected trainers as John Lyons and Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Famer Michael Poulin.

valiantdocumentary.com, the fulllength documentary is scheduled for a 2014 release.

nne Gribbons is a Pan American Games silver medalist, an Fei 5* dressage judge, and the former USeF dressage national technical advisor. She has trained many horses and riders to the Grand Prix ranks at her Knoll Dressage, Chuluota, FL. She shares a few of her favorite books for dressage riders. 1. Te Complete Training of Horse and Rider by Col. Alois Podhajsky (Doubleday, 1967). As the director of the Spanish Riding School of Vienna for many years, this man had a lot of experience training a lot of horses. Very easy to read, not cumbersome. 2. Practical Dressage Manual by Col. Bengt Ljungquist (Half Halt Press, 1983). Tis book goes through the training scale one piece at a time. it is very classical and correct as to what you want from the horse. 3. A Gymnastic Riding System Using Mind, Body & Spirit by Betsy Steiner (trafalgar Square, 2003). Tis one is more about the rider and what the rider has to do with his body in order to make the horse function. —Jennifer Walker

Te new Rider tests explained

the United States equestrian Federation have given these dilemmas much thought over the years. now there may be a way to level the playing feld: the new USeF rider tests.

Rider-centric tests focus on rider skills, not fancy horses

What Are the Rider Tests?

By Jayne Ayers

Tese new tests, developed through the combined eforts of the USDF and the USeF, provide for an alternate type of dressage competition that is far less dependent on the quality of the horse and much more dependent on the skills of the rider. it is our hope that these tests will give competitors on a wide variety of horses a chance to earn top scores and placings. USeF-licensed/USDF-recognized dressage competitions may ofer rider tests, which have been written for training, First, and Second Levels, beginning this competition year. Te patterns are consistent with those in the standard dressage tests, but with more challenging sequences. Tey require great accuracy and quick responses by both horse and rider. Movements that best show the rider’s aids are often placed so that the judge at C has a good view of the interaction between horse and rider. Te emphasis is on what the rider is doing rather than on the horse’s natural talent.

H

ave you ever wondered how your faithful equine companion could compete against those warmbloods that seem destined for an international dressage career? You might have felt outclassed at the shows before you even entered the arena. over the years, i have heard many riders lament that they don’t feel competitive at dressage shows because they can’t aford a horse that has the

“whole package” of temperament, gymnastic ability, and three super gaits. in addition, some adult amateurs know that they are not ever going to be athletic enough to sit comfortably on a really big-moving horse. or perhaps your breed of choice or your treasured companion is not ideally built for competitive dressage, but you are not interested in making a change. Committees at both the USDF and

to help the judges to focus primarily on the riders, a new scoring system has been developed for the rider tests. Tere are no scores for individual movements. At the end of the test, instead of the usual collective marks, there are fve scores pertaining to the rider: • Rider’s position • Rider’s correct and efective use of aids • Horse’s response and performance • Accuracy of the exercises • Harmony between horse and rider. Te judge awards a mark between 1.0 and 10.0 for each of the above. tenths of points allow for more diferentiation in classes with lots of riders of similar ability.

ing transitions accurately. However, to earn a high score here, the test must also be ridden with appropriate impulsion. it is always easier to be accurate when going slowly, with little energy. Well-ridden corners are also a part of the accuracy score. Harmony between horse and rider means more than that both look happy. it must look easy for the horse and rider to meet the demands of the test with confdence and fuency. Te judge wants to see correct basics and

well-executed exercises that show good preparation, executed by a rider who adheres elastically to the saddle with independent, soft hands. Te rider must show a good understanding of correct technique and training goals through his or her riding skills.

Scoring Methodology to arrive at the scores for the rider tests, our judges will have to learn a whole new way of evaluating a dres-

Directive ideas for each of the fve rider scores help the judges to assess the rider in greater detail than is required in the regular tests. For instance, the score for position asks the judge to look at posture and lateral symmetry, the ability to sit in harmony with the gait mechanics, vertical alignment when sitting and keeping the trunk slightly in front of vertical when posting, and the ability of the hands to maintain a steady, elastic contact with the horse’s mouth. Whew! Tat’s a lot to take in and remember—and that’s for only one of the fve marks. Te directives for correct and effective use of the aids pay more attention to the horse’s performance. if a rider is truly efective, the horse should perform with the impulsion required at the level, including the collection required at Second Level. evaluating the horse’s contact, bend, straightness, and longitudinal balance helps to determine the rider’s efectiveness, as does the correct execution of each exercise, with clearly correct aids. Te judge must look at how the aids are applied, not just at whether the horse managed to get the job done despite the rider. Te judge must evaluate the rider’s preparation for transitions and movements. to earn a good score, the aids should appear light and not too obvious. For a really high score, the aids should be nearly invisible. to quote the USeF Rule Book, the horse “gives the impression of doing, of its own accord, what is required.” naturally, there is overlap in looking at all these factors when giving the next score, for the horse’s response and performance. Good basics must underlie every portion of the test. Te horse should be active, with a consistent tempo at all gaits, while reaching confdently to the bit. He should react promptly and cooperatively with the driving and bending aids, as well as with the aids to move laterally. He should be in balance, showing the engagement appropriate to the level. Accuracy of the exercises refers to using good geometry and perform-

sage test. Unless they have judged the Fei Young Horse tests, they have never had to wait until the end of the test to give their scores and comments. Tis can be a big change. And judges have spent years being trained to look mostly at the horse, rather than the details of the riding. it will take time, practice, and training for judges to become as good at assessing riders as they are at judging horses. USeF clinics will provide this additional training, and continuing education may well be ofered through the USDF “L” program and other sources. We ask riders and coaches alike to be patient during the judges’ learning curve. not every rider strength or faw is likely to be noted at frst.

Tere are no plans in place for USDF awards for the new rider tests, but discussion is under way. First, however, people need to get used to riding, teaching, and judging them. in time, these new tests could prove to be a clear favorite of many riders to test their progress. even higher-level riders could drop down some levels and enter an occasional show just to ride the rider tests, which will provide

them with specifc feedback on their mastery of the basics. one of my students has won Great American/USDF Regional Championship titles at First, Second, and Tird Levels with scores of over 70 percent. i asked her to try out the new training Level Rider test. Although the patterns were easy for the pair, many small things could have been performed better. Te rider would not have earned many 8s for her eforts, even after practicing a few times. Te rider test provided some clear ideas for homework, which could have the added beneft of improving the pair’s upper-level work. in my experience thus far, i have found that the new rider tests really do test riders’ skills. A collegiate director of equestrian studies ofered the following feedback, which clearly expresses the main purpose of the tests: “i wonder if [those who developed the tests] fully appreciate the lovely thing they have done for riders whose passion for dressage can only be lived
