Raise Your Bar For dressage learning, there’s no better place than a Nutrena/USDF Adult Clinic

to committee members, some past clinics have had difculty attracting both riders and auditors. Tere have been clinics whose auditors could be counted on two hands, and these events feature some of the best instructor/trainers our nation has to ofer. Several of the USDF members in attendance suggested that the rider application ought to stress that competitive achievements are not a prerequisite, and that the clinics are aimed at all adults— not “only for amateurs” or “just for pros.” in addition, some said, it should be made more clear that the Adult Clinics are not “clinics as usual” (i.e., private riding lessons conducted before a silent audience). instead, the Adult Clinic Series is unique in that it is designed to educate, and involve, the auditors. of course the riders beneft as well, but they are chosen because they represent diferent levels, stages of training, issues, and so on—not because they’ve met some elite benchmark. if you can possibly swing a trip to your region’s clinic when Kathy and Betsy come to town, i promise you will not regret it. Ditto if you are chosen to ride: You will learn a lot and probably share a few laughs as well. See the Adult Clinics section on the USDF website (under the education menu) for the calendar and information on riding and auditing. Ten get out there!

here is a reason dressage riders make the pilgrimage to Germany, Florida, or California— and it’s not just for the opportunity to learn from top trainers. Surrounding oneself with excellence has a way of raising the bar, even if you aren’t the one in the arena. i’m reminded of this every time i attend a Succeed/ USDF Fei-Level trainers Conference (watch for my report on last month’s event, with British Fei 5* judge Stephen Clarke, in the April issue), from which i always return home quite a bit pickier than i was before i left. in other words, if you want to learn, sometimes it’s best to get out there. And i can’t think of a better place to do it than at one of the nutrena/USDF Adult Clinics, whose 2015-2016 series kicks of this April with presenters Kathy Connelly and Betsy Steiner. i am fortunate to have watched both Kathy and Betsy teach, and i have ridden in clinics with both of them, too. (Disclosure: i’m also the co-author of Betsy’s book, A Gymnastic Riding System Using Mind, Body & Spirit.) Both are experienced instructor/trainers who combine technical know-how with a warm and witty approach that’s efective in disarming nerves. i’ve seen them work with riders and horses ranging from novice adults to international competitors, and both ends of the spectrum receive the same degree of respect and attention. Tat’s why i encourage you to apply to ride, to audit, or both when they come to your USDF region. (For more about Kathy, Betsy, and their clinic plans, turn to “Be Your Horse’s Partner” on page 70.) At the open Adult Programs Committee meeting at the 2014 Adequan/ USDF Annual Convention last December, there was a lot of discussion about the Adult Clinic Series—specifcally, about how to attract more rider applicants and auditors.

Praise for WEG Judging Congratulations USDF CONNECTION to Lilo Fore on her THE ART OF DRESSAGE 2014 Alltech Fei World equestrian Games judging (“A Career High Point: Judging the WeG,” november). She is a judge who recognizes rhythmtempo, relaxation, contact, Schwung, and collection—and most of all, harmony between rider and horse. She, as do most riders and spectators, see dressage as art. And this is how it should be. Judges like Ms. Fore have great infuence so that classical dressage will be again recognized and respected. i have to thank Ms. Fore, as i’m sure the many who share her feelings about dressage do. We know this is not easy, but together we will achieve this goal. Forcing the horse to obey, which makes the horse frightened and tense, will only result in ruined gaits. if you W W W. U S D F.

Safety First

Laura Graves and Verdades

Color me paranoid, but i have to comment on a photo in the october issue (“Te tail end: Rekindling the Spark”). During my years of teaching and training, i was ever vigilant about safety. When i saw the photograph of the horse being ground-worked with the stirrup irons down, it took me aback. As we all know, it takes so little to spook a horse. With irons down and swinging loose, injuries are a given. in the interest of training well and safely, perhaps it would behoove us to mention the oft-overlooked safety issues. Tis situation is a prime example. Run those irons up! Dianne Fay Albuquerque, NM

Equus Film Festival Showcases the Power of the Horse

W

hen the flm Black Rodeo was screened back in 1972, little did the flmmakers know that their movie would take center stage again in 2014 at the equus Film Festival, held november 21-22 at the Mist Harlem Teatre in new York City. “Te horse decided what we needed to do, and that flm was what brought us to Harlem in new York City,” said Lisa Diersen, St. Charles, iL, who created the unique flm festival. Diersen’s inspiration grew into a 119-flm weekend featuring all things equine. “i decided to do something that covers every aspect of the horse world, including commercials, trailers, music videos, long and short documentaries, art flms and more,” she said. Among the chosen flms were several featuring dressage. one, D’Artagnan Is the Champion, won the People’s Choice award for its story of a rescue horse, his rider, and their path to competing successfully in dressage. Te story of Valiant, Life Is a Horse opens with Valiant, a blind Fei-level dressage horse, and his owner, Jeanette Sassoon, performing a freestyle to western-themed music. Te short video is a tribute to the remarkable horse, who died in 2013. Te flm’s theme song, with its “life is a horse” chorus, is sung by country-music legend Willie nelson,

who himself has saved numerous horses from slaughter. En Lusitanie, by artist Beatrice Bulteau, transports the viewer into the animation world. Her works of art come alive as one Lusitano jumps of the artist’s canvas and leads the viewer on a frolicking journey. other dressage-focused flms at the festival included Getting Started in Lightness with François Baucher, Andalusian Conformation and Movement, and a variety of others. Some powerful stories transcend breed or discipline. one such flm, Riding My Way Back, follows US Army SSgt Aaron Heliker, who returned from multiple deployments to iraq and Afghanistan with third-degree burns and nerve damage after a roadside bomb attack. Sufering from posttraumatic stress disorder and severe depression, Heliker overcame his desire to commit suicide with the help of a horse named Fred. Riding My Way Back earned the Best of Festival award. Learn more about the equus Film Festival and the flms screened in new York at facebook.com/ equusFilmFestivalnYC. —Diana De Rosa

the judge’s box

Goal: make the tests more progressive. Here’s a look at what’s changed By Janet Foy

e

very four years, the United States equestrian Federation test Writing Committee, a subcommittee of the USeF Dressage Committee, revises the USeF dressage tests (training through Fourth Levels). As you probably know by now, the 2015 edition of the tests were released December 1, 2014. in this article, i’ll highlight the major changes in the new tests.

Why Revise? every USeF test Writing Committee starts with a goal for the new tests. one year, when i was on the committee, we felt there wasn’t a good understanding of collection in Second

Level. We added the simple changes (changes of lead through the walk) to the Second Level tests that year. in the long run, it was the right idea, and judges can tell that it has improved horses’ training. Fei 5* dressage judge Gary Rockwell, who chaired the test Writing Committee for the 2015 test revisions, says that he and his colleagues had two goals. Te committee’s frst goal was to make the tests more progressive. in other words, test 1 should be easier than test 3. As an example of how they accomplished this, the three-loop serpentine in canter (no change of lead) was removed from Second Level test 1. Tis movement can now be found in Second Level test 3, which previously did not have as much counter-canter. Another addition to all of the tests is a clear progression of the lengthenings and medium gaits. Te new tests have shorter diagonals, which is easier and also saves time. Te committee’s second goal was to move a few of the exercises around in order to give the judge a better sight line or to help the judge be able to give a clear mark. For instance, to improve the judge’s sight line, the fying change in Tird Level test 3 was moved of the center line and onto a diagonal line. And one area in the 2011 tests that sometimes made it diffcult for the judge to evaluate a movement was trot-to-walk transitions, which previously were ridden between letters. often, riders would walk at the second letter, thereby showing the judges little, if any, walk strides.

Collective Marks Tere are now only fve scores in the collective marks, as the “harmony” score has been removed. Gaits are x1.

22 February 2015 • USDF ConneCtion

Impulsion is x2. Submission is x2 and now has the directive of “willing cooperation.” Rider’s Position and Seat is x1, and the Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the Aids is x1. new wording in this box includes the accuracy of the test. now let’s look at what’s new in each level.

Training Level training Level test 1 has more canter than before. Te canter is developed in the frst quarter of the 20-meter circles. one canter circle is at A, and one is at C. training Level test 2 still contains the two trot diagonals, but there is now an additional half-diagonal F-e in medium walk, so that the judge can clearly see the quality of the walk and give a more informed score. training Level test 3 is unchanged from the 2011 version.

First Level First Level test 1 brings back the halfcircles to X with a return to the track at H and M in trot (i call these the ice-cream cones). Te new progression is shown in the trot and canter lengthenings. Te trot is shown S-F; the canter, S-V. Also returning is the 15-meter circle after the canter lengthening. Te transition back to working canter is made in the frst half of the circle. First Level test 2 again has shorter diagonals for the lengthenings. Legyields are introduced from center line to the rail. transitions back to working canter are gradual but no longer on a circle. Te trot stretch circle is in a much better place than in the previous tests; it’s no longer right after the free walk. First Level test 3 has no change in the canter patterns, but the previous trot work is gone. Te new trot work should be more user-friendly. Te leg-yields are shown from K-X and X-H, one after the other. Te 10-meter circles are now in a diferent place.

Second Level

Third Level Tird Level test 1 is unchanged. All mediums and extensions are on full diagonals. Te shoulder-in-to-renvers pattern that was in the old Second Level test 3 is now part of Tird Level test 2. in addition, there are two trot half-

passes from the center line to the rail. Te only change in the canter work is the removal of the two extra fying changes. Tird Level test 3 has the same trot work as before, but the location of the fying changes after the halfpasses is now easier and also more visible to the judge. After the halfpass ends on the center line, the pattern has a half-10-meter circle from i-S followed by a diagonal S-F with the fying change near the center line.

photo by Mary Shrode

Second Level test 1 now has the three-loop serpentine with a simple change each time the rider crosses the center line. Te medium paces are on short diagonals. Shoulder-in and rein back both are required. Second Level test 2 requires a shoulder-in with two half-10-meter circles to a travers (haunches-in). turns on the haunches are introduced and are ridden between the trot patterns. Te canter pattern is really clever and rides very well. Te approach to the counter-canter (K-D half-circle left 10 meters, returning to the track at e) is easy. Te half-20-meter circle S-R will need some attention, as most riders will make it too large. Ten the counter-canter to B with the simple change avoids any sharp turns. Second Level test 3 no longer includes renvers (haunches-out). Te pattern returns the shoulder-in/10meter circle/travers pattern from older tests. Medium trots use the full

diagonal. Te canter has full mediums and a three-loop serpentine with no change of lead in both directions.

the judge’s box Fourth Level Fourth Level test 1 has only one change, which is in keeping with the test Writing Committee’s goal of establishing a progression. Te fying change after the half-pass used to go to C; now the changes are at M and H, thereby removing the counter-canters. Fourth Level test 2 has the same trot work, but two canter half-passes have been added. in addition, the pattern of the working pirouette is like

a “V” or triangle now. Te patterns have the horse cantering H-X with a working pirouette approaching X and turning back to M. Tere is also now a requirement for three fying changes every fourth stride. Fourth Level test 3 is hard! Tere are three new movements. one is a “swing” in the rein back. Te horse will halt; rein back four steps; walk forward four steps; rein back four steps; and proceed to trot. Tis movement used to be in the Grand Prix

editorial@usdf.org

test. Tere should be no interruption between the back and forward, hence the word “swing.” Fourth Level 3 also contains the old canter pattern from the Prix St. Georges (we called them the niggli squiggles after the Fei judge Wolfgang niggli, who wrote the test). Tis pattern (movements 13 through 16 in the test) will take some schooling! it is done twice: a half-10-meter circle in true canter to the center line, immediately followed by a half-10-meter circle in counter-canter, followed by a fying change. Tere are also three fying changes every fourth stride, and an addition of three fying changes every third stride. Tis was defnitely the most challenging test in the new-test forums!

Lessons from the “L” Program Our training series concludes with a look at the “rider” collective marks By Debbie Riehl-Rodriguez with Fran Severn

focus on the rider: Two collective marks evaluate the rider’s position and use of the aids

Te 2015 United States equestrian Federation dressage tests, which were released December 1, 2014, included changes to the collective marks. Specifcally, the rider-focused collective mark for “harmony” has been removed. Harmony was always considered in the collective mark for submission; now it is exclusively found there. (For more details on these changes, see “Clinic: Lessons from the ‘L’ Program,” December 2014/January 2015.) Tis change leaves only two “rider” collectives: rider’s position and seat and correct and efective use of the aids.

Rider’s Position and Seat Tese may be the easiest elements of a test to evaluate objectively, and perhaps the easiest for the rider to adjust and improve. With correct equitation and a correct and efective seat, you can properly apply the aids and communicate with your horse. He, in return, can respond willingly, easily, and in balance. in formulating the score for this collective mark, the judge frst evaluates the rider’s posture and alignment according to the following criteria: • Posture; shape of the body • Symmetry • Stability • elasticity • Following the mechanics of the gaits. Te criteria are presented in a specifc order because each one is infuenced by the element that comes before it. i’ll look at each one in detail. Posture; shape of the body. Because the collective marks refect the basics that every rider needs, these criteria should sound familiar: Your ear, shoulder, hip, and heel should be aligned vertically (in the rising trot, your upper body is slightly ahead of the vertical, which i’ll discuss further in a moment). A second imaginary line should run from the bit through your hands to your elbows, which should be bent and resting lightly against your lower ribs. Like a horse’s conformation, our basic structure is what we’re born with, and every rider’s body type is diferent. Te challenge is to learn how to maximize your physical abilities to compensate for any aspect of your physique that may be less than ideal for dressage purposes. if you are in a general balanced range, it’s a good start. You’re able to begin to be efective with your aids, and you can refne that efectiveness.

syMMetry: A laterally balanced rider’s weight is distributed equally over both seat bones (left). Uneven lateral balance results in multiple areas of asymmetry throughout the rider’s body and forces the horse to compensate (right).

Symmetry. Symmetry refers to the rider’s lateral balance—how evenly you sit on both seat bones. it’s possible for a rider to appear correct when viewed from the side but to be weighting one seat bone more than the other. Te symmetrical rider appears equally aligned when viewed from the front or behind (see illustration above). When your weight is distributed equally in the saddle, you’re better able to maintain your balance. Uneven lateral balance can negatively impact the horse because it forces him to compensate. Most asymmetrical riders slide to the outside of the saddle and “collapse” the inside hip, which causes the hip to push the leg to the outside. As a result, the rider can’t turn or keep the horse’s weight balanced correctly. Stability. Good posture and symmetry lead to stability. A stable rider sits securely in the saddle by virtue of her body position and balance. Tis security comes from proper weight distribution through a stable core. You can maintain proper posture without rocking from side to side when your horse is moving. Many posture faults—elbows or toes out, weight uneven in the stirrups, and using the reins for support, among others—happen when the rider tries to compensate for poor stability. Perhaps the best way to improve all of these factors is lunge lessons. When you don’t have to worry about your hands or gaits or steering, you

PICS OF YOU

i

n the previous articles in this series, faculty members of the USDF “L” education Program explained key points of the “L” program—equine biomechanics, judging methodology, and the collective marks for the dressage horse—and how you can apply them to your own riding, training, and showing. Tis month, in our series’ fnal installment, i’ll examine the collective marks for the rider and the “further remarks” area of the score sheet.

can focus exclusively on your position and balance. Tis should be done either with an instructor or a ground person with a good eye. Elasticity comes from good development of the previously mentioned elements. Te rider is relaxed while maintaining a steady contact with the horse’s mouth. An elastic contact is actually a positive, mobile tension that develops without the rider’s becoming rigid. Tink in terms of a bungee cord, which simultaneously holds and gives. Mechanically, your hands should be quiet and placed close together with thumbs on top. Te difculty for many riders is the ability to relax the elbows and shoulders so that the arms can move fuidly to maintain the contact. Following the mechanics of the gaits. Tis refers to what the rider does when the horse is in motion. After all, a rider can sit prettily and in the center of the saddle when the horse is standing still, but stifen and fail to follow the motion when the horse moves. A good example of following the mechanics of the gaits is the rising trot. A rider who posts up and down like a pogo stick will land behind the motion, be of balance, and may well end up “posting with her hands,” with her hands moving up and down with her upper body instead of maintaining the desired straight line from bit to elbow. in addition, a less-sensitive horse will react to a too-straight rider by showing less response to the aids. to follow the mechanics of the gaits in the rising trot, your upper body should be very slightly in front of

the vertical, with your base of support between your knee and your heel (see illustration below). Tis position allows you to stay with the horse as he moves forward; when you come down, you’ll be in the center of the saddle, not behind the motion. in all gaits, horse and rider should appear to fow together as one coordinated unit. in the walk, your hands follow the movement of your horse’s neck. in the trot, your body matches the up-and-down and forward movement. in the canter, you keep control of your hips while your hands and arms smoothly follow the movement of his head and neck. Tis ideal is possible only if the whole package—posture, symmetry, stability, and elasticity—is in place.

Correct and Effective Use of the Aids Te second collective mark that applies to the rider is correct and efective use of the aids. Te judge looks for a rider who performs the movements using subtle, tactful, and efective aids. Te overall impression should be one of clear, consistent, cooperative communication. Tis stems from well-developed basics that follow the pyramid of training (see illustration above). Using the aids correctly and effectively is a natural segue from “following”: First we learn to follow the horse’s motion passively; then we can begin to learn to infuence the horse. if you cannot follow your horse’s

uPPer-Body Position in trot: In the sitting trot (left), the rider’s body is vertical. In the posting or rising trot (right), the upper body should be slightly in front of the vertical to enable the rider to stay with the horse’s motion. In the illustration, the rider’s upper body may be slightly more forward than would be considered ideal for dressage.

Te pyramid of training

motion, your aids are not as efective. Judges often see riders pulling too much, throwing away the outside rein, riding with rigid hands, and demonstrating a lack of understanding of how to prepare for a transition or movement. All of these faults are attempts to compensate for what’s missing. it all goes back to refning and mastering the basics of posture and balance. Te patterns in the dressage tests are intended to help evaluate the correctness and the timing of the aids. Te execution of each element shows how well the rider prepared for the movement and how well the aids were applied. Te pattern is designed so that each movement is a natural progression from the one that comes before it. You can take advantage of that by understanding how the pattern helps you and your horse prepare for the movements. For example, in training Level test 3, you ride a single loop in trot from H-X-K, then develop left-lead canter between A and F. Te loop allows you to supple and loosen your horse’s bend. By the time you reach K, he is already bending and balanced Horse and rider illustrations from Jane Savoie’s Dressage 101 by Jane Savoie.

clinic to the inside so that he is prepared to step easily into the canter as he approaches the next corner. timing is an important part of effective use of the aids. Many riders don’t realize that when you apply an aid—at which point in the stride—is critically important. Your timing and emphasis on a particular phase of the stride greatly infuence your horse. Applying an aid at a random moment prevents an immediate, seamless response. Correct timing requires an understanding of the footfalls of the gaits. it is amazing how many riders do not know the sequence of footfalls, the movement of the legs, and the patterns of movement of each gait. Most people know how many beats are in the walk, trot, and canter; but a surprising number do not know the sequence, particularly for the canter. Riders need to constantly be aware of what legs are moving and which leg(s) is on the ground at any given moment. As an example, let’s look at the canter (see illustration above right). Most instructors tell students to ask for the canter by moving the inside leg forward and the outside leg slightly behind the girth. But they rarely address when to do this. But mistiming the aid means the horse will run into the canter, toss his head, and go hollow while trying to respond; or pick up the incorrect lead. Let’s say you want your horse to strike of in the right-lead canter. Te sequence of footfalls means that the outside hind leg—in this case, the left hind leg—is the frst step. Tat’s the leg that will push of into the gait. Te correct moment to apply the

canter aid—moving your outside leg (your left leg, in this example) slightly behind the girth and applying slight pressure—is when your horse’s outside hind leg is of the ground (or the inside hind leg is on the ground). Tis timing allows the horse to prepare to push of with the outside leg into the desired lead. Te transition can be seamless, efortless, and fowing. Another way that judges evaluate a rider’s use of the aids is by the accuracy with which the test is ridden. Te judge wants to see transitions and movements happening where indicated in the test, and fgures and other elements executed with accurate geometry. Particularly at the lower levels, these don’t always happen as planned. A common mistake occurs when the rider tries to stick with the pattern at all costs, forcing a movement or transition to happen when the horse isn’t ready. if you have to choose between performing a movement at the designated

letter even though your horse isn’t properly prepared, or sacrifcing a bit of accuracy in order to execute the movement when the timing and balance are right, opt for the correct moment. Te transition itself is what dressage judges refer to as the essence of the movement. Te accuracy of where it is performed is a modifer—a secondary factor in the score for that movement. Te judge would rather see a correct, lovely transition a stride or two early or late than a sloppy, unbalanced movement. if you fnd yourself making these compromises regularly in competition, work on your timing in your schooling at home. (For more on essence of the movements and modifers, see “Te Judge’s Box: Te essence of Dressage,” December 2014/January 2015.) Tat said, precision is important and can make or break a movement score. A talented horse ridden in a sloppy test may lose to an “average” horse with a spot-on pattern. Te most common inaccuracies are: • turns down center line that are not proper or prepared and that come either too soon or too late • Riding into corners when the fgure called for is a circle • Making corners in three-loop serpentines • egg-shaped fgures instead of 10-meter circles. You can get away with poor geometry a little bit, especially if there is


only one judge. But a judge at “C” can easily spot center-line errors, including inaccurately sized half-circles. Poor geometry is just giving away points.

Further Remarks Te last part of the collective marks is further remarks. Tis section is the main way that a judge can communicate outside the limits of scoring and give comments and observations that don’t ft elsewhere. it’s also the frst thing (after the overall score) that many riders look at when they receive their test sheets. As a judge, because i know the importance of the further remarks to the competitor, i use this section to comment on the most important issues in a positive, instructive way. For example, this is where i’d explain that the inaccuracies in a test are giving away points. A judge needs to emphasize the good qualities of the test while giving direction and suggestions about areas where the basics are missing or need work. i try to summarize the main points of the test at a level that the competitor will understand. My comments to a child rider will be diferent than those to an adult, although the remarks for the child are also directed to his or her instructor.

A Superior Sequel The 2014 US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan—bigger and better than last year’s inaugural event—seems well on its way to becoming a destination event for riders from across the country By JenniFer M. Keeler

t

he undisputed success of the inaugural US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan proved that, after a 30-year drought, head-to-head national championships at all levels from training to Grand Prix could once again be a reality in the US. After the november 2013 competition, riders marked their calendars for november 6-9, 2014, when the Finals were scheduled to return to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. But the second year brought with it a new challenge. “When an organization like USDF has not run a competition of any sort in recent memory, then suddenly takes on running a national championship, i think it’s safe to say that expectations were fairly low for the inaugural event. i would even say there was some apprehension coming into it,” said former USDF secretary and veteran competition organizer Janine Malone, who chaired the US Dressage Finals organizing Committee in both 2013 and 2014. “instead, it ended up being an excellent event with rave reviews from those who were brave enough to come. However, the rebound efect is that when you exceed initial expectations, people come back the next year with much higher expectations. Tere’s increased pressure to do well because if you don’t do an even better job, it’s not seen as successful.” Compounding the situation was a basic math problem: Tanks to the good reviews, many more riders were aspiring to compete in 2014. But according to USDF president George Williams, the growth was exactly what he’d hoped to see. “i hope that the Finals will also help grow the [Great American/USDF] Regional Championships: Hopefully more people will now try to qualify for the Regionals in order to possibly make it to the Finals in the future,” Williams said after the 2013 event. “i think that, in this way, the Finals will have a trickle-down efect and draw more of a base of support for our sport.” Almost every Regional Championships organizer did indeed report growth in 2014, with some regions enjoying dramatic increases in entries (see “US Dressage Finals by the numbers” on page 46). All of USDF’s nine regions showed increases in Finals competitor nominations (as much as a 214-percent jump). And the fnal entry tally was equally impressive: Te 2014 Finals roster included more than 400 entries for the US Dressage Finals and the concurrent USDF Dressage in the Bluegrass open show—an increase of more than 100 entries over the inaugural event. Riders and horses representing all nine USDF regions traveled to Kentucky from 38 states across the country and the District of Columbia, from as far west as Washington, oregon, and California.

ne of the highlights of the US Dressage Finals is the diversity of competitors, including the horses: from ponies to Gypsy Vanners, Lipizzans to Friesians, Appaloosas to PMU rescues. Even amid the parade of breeds, one equine stood out: Heart B Dyna, a chestnut 12-year-old molly mule. After scoring well at the Great American/USDF Region 7 Championships in Burbank, CA, owner/rider Laura Hermanson, Madera, CA, earned a wild-card invitation to Kentucky. When “Dyna” entered at A for the Training Level Open Championship, she became the frst mule to compete at the Finals. “It’s a dream come true to compete at a show of this caliber. The whole experience has been incredible,” said Hermanson, who added DYna-MITE! Mule Heart B Dyna and owner/ that she hopes to inspire others with “nontraditional” mounts to pursue rider Laura Hermanson wowed audiences at the their dressage dreams. “We’re all insanely passionate about dressage, no Finals matter what kind of equine we ride. The reception here has been marvelous—maybe more welcoming than any show we’ve ever been to. I haven’t seen any horse react negatively, and most don’t even notice she’s a mule. I was prepared to take any steps necessary to make everyone comfortable with Dyna, such as warming up away from others, but we didn’t have any problems.” The trip to Lexington wasn’t cheap, of course, and “I know a lot of people worry about the expense, but I think if you want it badly enough, you fnd a way to make it happen,” Hermanson said. “I launched an online fundraising campaign to get Dyna here, and in two weeks I had the money I needed. And I have to say, if this amazing, impossible dream happens once more, I would do it again in a heartbeat.” —Jennifer M. Keeler


learned so much from last year’s show and were able to make improvements based on feedback we received from competitors to make this event even better. i think everyone went home last year having had such a positive experience at the inaugural Finals, and we wanted to make sure that happened again. Tat success directly contributed to the impressive increase in our entry numbers, which made for a tight schedule and some logistical challenges, but the whole organizing team came together to make it happen.” “From the very beginning, the concept of these Finals was for this event to serve our members and ofer them a chance to compete on the national-championship stage, regardless of level or division,” said Williams. “even though last year’s inaugural Finals were an overwhelming success, our number-one priority was to gather feedback as to how USDF could continue to improve the event and ofer our members even more opportunities.” Said Malone: “We were a little more focused on details this year like improving food service, vendor selection, merchandise, and directions around the park, all a direct result of what we heard from competitors. We worked hard to improve the transition of the facility from the national Horse Show, which is held the week preceding the Finals. We also improved our awards-ceremony protocol, which was appre-

ciated by riders. Scoring systems were streamlined even further, making classes able to be fnalized within minutes after the last horse exited the ring. i think we met our goals, but we look forward to once again sending out surveys to all competitors and ofcials to gather even more feedback for 2015.” Te 2014 Finals featured several welcome additions. Tirty-one of USDF’s All-Breeds awards participating organizations presented high-score awards to the top breed performers at the national and Fei levels, in both the open and adult-amateur divisions. Added to the championship class list by popular demand were adult-amateur freestyles, ofering titles for First, Second, Tird, and Fourth Levels as well as for intermediate i and Grand Prix. entry numbers for freestyle classes exploded, resulting in two full days of freestyle championship competition in the Alltech Arena from early morning until late at night, even overfowing into an outside ring. “i would really like to thank those who made the decision to separate the open and adult-amateur freestyle championship classes,” said Region 2 competitor Cariann Wlosinski, of Lexington, KY, who rode her oldenburg mare, Rhiannon, to the First and Second Level Freestyle Adult Amateur championship titles. “everyone loves freestyles, but they are a lot of work, and it means a lot to have our own division.”

Jill Stowe and her Toroughbred gelding, A student of Lexington-based dressage trainer Reese Koffer-Stanfeld, Dundee, at the US Dressage Finals Stowe brought Dundee along herself in dressage and lower-level eventing. The pair earned their ticket to the Finals with a score of 66.90 percent at Second Level in the Great American/USDF Region 2 Championships. New Vocations sponsored their Finals entry. Stowe said she was delighted at the opportunity to promote new careers for OTTBs and the adoption program at New Vocations, which has additional facilities in Ohio and Pennsylvania, plus a Standardbred adoption facility in Michigan. “We are beyond excited to see one of our graduates compete in the US Dressage Finals, as it proves that Thoroughbreds can compete against the best horses in the country,” said New Vocations director Anna Ford. “Jill has done an amazing job training Dundee, and they have become great ambassadors for retired racehorses. Her patience and hard work have truly paid off.” Stowe grew up riding dressage, hunters, jumpers, and eventers; but she quit riding—a break that turned into a 20year hiatus—when she went to college and later earned her PhD in economics. Now the director of the University of Kentucky’s Equine Agriculture program, she lives in Nicholasville, KY, with her husband and their two sons.

Para-Equestrian Makes Dressage History

M

ary Jordan, of Wells, ME, is a lifelong equestrian and a diehard competitor. In 2002 she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis; undaunted, she took up para-equestrian dressage and in 2010 represented the US at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky. Like some other para-dressage riders, Jordan also rides in able-bodied competition. And in November 2014, she became the frst para-equestrian to win a Great American/USDF Regional Championship title (for able-bodied riders) and to compete at the US Dressage Finals. Jordan’s partner for these milestone accomplishments is the Oldenburg gelding Rubicon 75, owned by Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center, Loxahatchee, FL (and formerly owned and ridden by international competitor Catherine Haddad Staller). Earning her USDF bronze medal along the way, Jordan qualifed Rubicon 75 for the Great American/USDF Region 8 Championships in Saugerties, NY, in September, where she won the Third Level Adult Amateur title and a ticket to Kentucky. uP TO THE CHaLLEnGE: Mary Jordan Of the Finals, Jordan said: “It was absolutely a fabulous experience and and Rubicon 75 at the Finals deeply rewarding on a number of different levels. Even though the cold weather presented some problems for me, I went in there like everyone else and gave it my all. One of my favorite moments was schooling in the Alltech Arena with all the other horses and being in that fraternity of the best riders in the country. No one gave me any special treatment, nor did I expect it or want it. I believe that so much of competing successfully is about adapting to your environment, which may be less than ideal circumstances. You have to put your best foot forward regardless of the conditions, and that’s what we did and that’s what I’m so proud of.” —Jennifer M. Keeler

The Western Invasion

O

ne of the disappointments from 2013’s inaugural US Dressage Finals was the low representation from the westernmost parts of the country: Region 7 had only fve competitors, while Region 6 had just a single entry. And although in 2014 these two regions may still have been low in numbers compared to the rest of the country, they made a huge impact on the leader boards. Regions 6 and 7 each had 10 horse/rider combinations compete at the 2014 Finals—meaning Region 7 doubled its participation from last year and Region 6 saw a dramatic tenfold increase. (For specifcs, see “US Dressage Finals by the Numbers” on the next page.) Those Region 6 and 7 riders who did make the long trip took home a large share of the spoils: 12 championship and reserve-championship titles among them. WITH HELP FROM HER FRIEnDS: Fourth Level Adult Amateur Freestyle reserve champion Jacquelyn McMaster, of Others in Region 6 helped Jacquelyn Sherwood, OR, cited the success of the inaugural event and the ability to network McMaster of Oregon get to the US with other competitors in her region as factors in her decision to make the 2,500- Dressage Finals, where she was rewarded with the Fourth Level mile trek to Kentucky. “Everyone spoke so highly about last year’s Finals, and it looked like a lot of fun, Adult Amateur Freestyle reserve so I made it a goal to qualify this time,” McMaster said. “I’ve never done anything championship like this before, and I missed my Young Rider window of opportunity, so now as an adult amateur I wanted to get a feel for something bigger than just showing in my region. I wanted to see where I stood in the context of the entire country and have an exciting goal to look forward to at the end of the year. “It was daunting to think about doing this, but I got help from others in my region, and that joint coordination is what really made this trip a realistic possibility for me,” she continued. “My horse handled the trip so well; he came off the trailer like a champ. The show was everything I hoped it would be, and I didn’t want the week to be over.” —Jennifer M. Keeler

Bessey, who is a family-practice physician in Tousand oaks, CA. “Te atmosphere is almost indescribable; it feels very big, but at the same time everyone is so supportive of each other. i’m so glad i had the opportunity to come here.” Another grateful competitor was Janne Rumbough, of Palm Beach, FL, who rode her PRe gelding Junior to the Grand Prix Adult Amateur Freestyle Championship title and the new Calaveras County Perpetual trophy, created by artist olva Stewart Pharo. “i’ve met so many amazing people from across the country at all levels here, and we’ve all shared our contact information so now we can stay in touch,” Rumbough said afterward. “As an adult-amateur rider, this is such an amazing event for us. i think this is the future of the sport, and it’s incredible to be here and be a part of it. i’d like to thank everyone involved—

especially the sponsors for their support and the volunteers who take time away from their families to make this happen for us. We would not have this show without all these people and their hard work, and i’m so grateful for it.” s Jennifer M.

or the frst time in the history of the USDF, the adequan/USDF annual Convention was held in new england. From dancing at ned Devine’s irish Pub to a dinner cruise in Boston harbor, region 8 and all of its group-member organizations (Gmos)—with the new england Dressage association leading the way—proved to be terrifc hosts for the 2014 event, held December 3-6 in Cambridge, ma. Somehow, the staf at our northern hotel really knew how to lay on the southern hospitality; even the weather was reasonably cooperative. Sadly, i missed most of the educational presentations, but i did hear only good reviews. i was especially intrigued by the title of Kristi Wysocki’s and Bill Solyntjes’ sport-horse presentation: “Te Good, the Bad and the Ugly.” (Watch for a report on their session in the april issue of USDF Connection.)

Business Meetings: The Takeaway Te expression “business as usual” once again describes this year’s Board of Governors (BoG) meeting in Cambridge, ma. Te BoG is USDF’s governing body, comprising delegates from USDF’s Gmos and its participating members in each of USDF’s nine regions. at its 2014 meeting, the BoG approved the budget for the coming fscal year along with some bylaws changes that i would categorize as “housekeeping.” (USDF’s bylaws, along with other governance documents including the annual BoG agenda, are online at usdf.org.) over the years, no longer are the details of our programs being hammered out in the Board of Governors; rather, the bulk of the work has shifted to the committees. Tis is how it should be, as it is in the committees where new ideas are hatched, old ones are discussed, and all USDF members can have a true impact on the organization. all USDF committees hold at least one open meeting during the convention. i encourage anyone who has suggestions regarding USDF programs to come to the open meetings and share those ideas. anyone who has ideas about how a program might be run more efectively or how the USDF can better serve you, please attend and let us hear your voice. Te convention is truly the place where ideas can be expressed and explored. Tis is your USDF. not all committees put forward motions to the Board of Governors in 2014. however, the BoG did have some to consider and approved several motions. Te awards Committee and the regional Championship Committee presented motions that contained some changes and tweaks to their programs. of these, several are important for our members to be aware of. Te frst will be efective october 1, 2015 for the 2016 competition season: long overdue, the Vintage Cup award will now USDF ConneCtion

the second line of the top menu). not only are comments regarding this page welcome; we seek them. our hope is for this page to be the go-to place for anyone looking for information regarding aas and the programs available to them. Te second motion brought forward by the awards Committee was a request for the creation of a Dressage Seat equitation rider award, to include all age groups. Te details regarding this award are still being fnalized by the awards Committee but should be announced soon. Te regional Championships Committee put forward three motions to the BoG. Te frst was a request for a change to regional Championship program rule Section C, Qualifying System 5. as of october 1, 2015 (for the 2016 competition year), this rule will read: “Competitions lasting one or multiple days may ofer multiple qualifying classes per division per day.” Te second motion will require a United States equestrian Federation rule-change proposal to dressage rule (Dr) 127.4, as it requests a change to regional Championship program rule Section C, Qualifying System 7. if approved, the amended rule would read: “horse/rider combinations may enter more than one qualifying test and qualifying freestyle at each level per day at Great american/USDF qualifying; however, no more than one qualifying score may be earned per level per division per day.” Te third motion requests a change to regional Championship rule Section e, Championship rules. Te new wording would be as follows: “Cross-entering open and junior/

young rider divisions or open and adult-amateur divisions for a horse/rider combination is permitted at adjacent levels. it is not permitted at the same level. exception: freestyle or equivalent levels, Fei Junior or Fei young rider. efective starting 2016 program year.” i want to emphasize that these changes will not go into efect until the 2016 program year. Please check the 2015 championship rules for all rules governing the current competition season. less obvious, but nonetheless a major change this year, was the rescheduling of the USeF rule-change forum to a more prominent time during the day. in the past, the forum was held in the evening, when everyone is tired and one had to choose between dinner with friends and associates or learning about the proposed rule changes, which are discussed at the USDF and other USeF afliate organizations’ conventions prior to the USeF annual convention in January. needless to say, in the past, only diehards attended the rule-change forum. yet rule changes afect all of us, and it is important to understand the changes as they are being proposed. Te USeF wants feedback from the afliates, and the afliates (in our case, the USDF) wants feedback from their members. recognizing this, the rule-change forum deserves a more prominent spot in our convention schedule. With 2014 being the frst year for this schedule change, we had to divide the forum over two days. although it was unfortunate that we ran out of time on the second day to cover all of the rule-change proposals, we now know to set aside even more time for this important topic. For those of

you who were unable to attend the convention, there is a section on the USDF website dedicated to the USeF rulechange proposals (link on the home page), including links to the actual proposals on the USeF website. you can read the comments and add your own. We hope you will take advantage of this new feature in the future. last but not least, there is a major rule-change proposal that at press time was pending fnal approval by the USeF in January and is slated to take efect april 1. Tis is a major change from the current rule (USeF Dr 127.5), and it will allow horse/rider combinations to win up to three Great american/USDF regional Championship titles (in any region over their lifetimes) at a given level.

Riding into HistoRy It’s a Major Award!

adUlT amaTeUr grand PriX TrOPHY: Alice Tarjan accepts the championship trophy from Adequan’s Allyn Mann and USDF president George Williams

Te reasoning behind this change is simple enough. With the introduction of the US Dressage Finals in 2013, we found ourselves possibly facing an unintended loophole of sorts. US Dressage Finals rules do not prohibit riders who have won from coming back the following year with the same horse and competing at the same level in the same division—a scenario that could easily happen if the horse/ rider combination had not actually won their regional Championships but were either reserve champions or received a wild-card invitation to the Finals. however, a horse

and rider who had won a regional Championship and went on the US Dressage Finals would not be allowed to return the following year at the same level in the same division. no matter how you look at it, the discrepancy doesn’t seem fair. (of course, none of this applies to those riders competing at the Grand Prix level because Grand Prix-level competitors have always been exempted from the one-time rule for regional champions.) as the US Dressage Finals are still in their infancy, we may see additional tweaking in the future as more idiosyncrasies come to light.

Celebrations no convention is complete without a party. Te Saturdaynight Salute Gala and annual awards Banquet proved to be exactly that. in this article you will see many photos from that wonderful evening. For me, aside from seeing so many smiling faces and being able to personally congratulate so many of our award winners—including handing my daughter, noel, her own USDF gold medal—the highlights are always recognizing those who have given so much to our sport. at the 2014 gala, Janine malone and maryal Barnett received USDF lifetime achievement awards. terry Ciotti Gallo and Christiana logan received the USDF Volunteer and youth Volunteer of the year awards, respectively. however, for the most engaging and inspirational talk of the evening, i would have to give the nod to 17-year-old para-equestrian dressage rider Sydney Collier, who was recognized and spoke on behalf of our 2014 World equestrian Games athletes. to point out how exceptional this young lady is, the same week of the USDF convention, she also won the USeF Junior equestrian of the year award and then traveled with her mother, anna, and her service dog, Journey, to Baku, azerbaijan, to accept the Fei’s against all odds award. need i say more?

Be Your Horse’s Partner New Adult Clinic Series headliners Kathy Connelly and Betsy Steiner present their winning formula By JenniFer o. Bryant

i

f learning from one top dressage professional is good, then learning from two is…awesome. Particularly if the two 1) are longtime friends, 2) share similar training backgrounds and philosophies, and 3) are set to kick of the 2015-2016 nutrena/USDF adult Clinic Series in just a couple of months. Te twosome in question are Kathy Connelly and Betsy Steiner, who begin their clinics in texas, in USDF region 9, this april (for details and a calendar, go to usdf.org/ education/clinics/adult). Te women described their approach to teaching and training in a standing-room-only session at the 2014 adequan/USDF national Convention in Cambridge, ma. For a sneak peek at their methodology, read on.

Winning Partnerships in the 1980s, Connelly and Steiner trained together in Germany under the late master herbert rehbein, who was legendary for his seemingly efortless ability to elicit from any horse a performance his usual rider had hardly dreamt possible. rehbein was also famous for giving little to no actual instruction during his “lessons,” meaning that his pupils watched and learned from his examples. Both women spoke reverently of rehbein, as do most of the modern masters who worked with him. Connelly, who

70 February 2015 • USDF ConneCtion

divides her time between massachusetts and Florida, is a veteran of international dressage competition and a soughtafter coach. She is a US equestrian Federation “S” dressage judge, a USDF honorary instructor, and vice-chair of the USeF high Performance Dressage Committee. She is at work on a book on her training specialty, long-lining, to be published by trafalgar Square Books. Steiner, of new Jersey and Florida, is also an international competitor and a USDF honorary instructor. She is the author of A Gymnastic Riding System Using Mind, Body, & Spirit (trafalgar Square), which has the distinction of being the frst dressage text by a US author to be translated into German and approved by the German national equestrian Federation (Fn). Connelly and Steiner have worked together before. in the 1990s they led a series of well-received adult dressage camps at what’s now the US equestrian team Foundation headquarters in Gladstone, nJ. Good friends with a mutual admiration for each other’s talents, they have an easy and positive rapport. as they talked at the USDF convention, any notion of upper-level trainers as results-focused hard-liners was quickly dispelled. Steiner, for her part, embraces what she calls a mind, body, and spirit approach. She presented, from her book, her expanded take on the well-known pyramid of


dressage training: horse and rider each get a “pyramid” of their own, and each pyramid comprises a quality relating to each of the elements of mind, body, and spirit. Te “rider” building blocks each include an intellectual element, an athletic element, and a psychological element. Te “horse” building blocks each include a knowledge element, an athletic element, and a psychological element. yes, she’s that thorough. as for Connelly, she likened dressage training to art— the museum kind. “Te artist michelangelo said that the sculpture was already present in the marble. his job was to release the sculpture from the marble,” she said. likewise, the trainer’s job is to bring out the talent innate in horse while preserving his spirit, she said. “We are shepherds for the horse while we are here on earth,” Connelly said. “once a horse has given you his heart, he will give you his mind. Te success of positive leadership is the upbeat, positive spirit that we give to the horse to make him think something good is about to happen to him.”

Te meat of Steiner’s and Connelly’s presentation was video clips from various clinics and training sessions. Te riders shown, they emphasized, were of all ages—one, a student of Connelly’s, has been with her for 25 years and is now 75 years old—and were both professionals and adult amateurs. (likewise, the adult Clinic Series is open to all adult riders, and amateurs are encouraged both to apply to ride and to audit.) Ten it was on to a short Q&a with audience members. a sampling: Q: How do you help a rider come to terms with limited ability or talent for dressage? Betsy Steiner: i fnd Pilates to be tremendously helpful for riders, especially the work on the reformer, which, because it has moving parts, has similarities to working with a horse. i developed a system, equilates, to help develop the equestrian athlete through the use of Pilates-based exercises. it’s possible that maybe you don’t have limitations, after all. i have worked with para-equestrians who have true physical limitations. Sometimes i will consult with a physical therapist; can they help [the para-dressage athlete] work through an issue? often, working in sport-specifc exercises helps to overcome a challenge you might have thought was a limit. Q: When should you introduce the half-halt to a horse with no prior dressage training?

Kathy Connelly: Te half-halt is pertinent to any horse in any discipline because it teaches the horse to rebalance. it’s like breathing; you inhale, and you exhale. many riders forget to ride forward after the half-halt. hopefully the horse wants to go forward to the bit because he’s learned that the bit is a nice place to be. Q: I’m having trouble teaching my horse the onetempi changes. Any advice? Betsy Steiner: it’s better to start by riding a horse that knows the ones before you try to teach a horse the ones. in riding the ones, a common mistake is to stifen in the middle, and then the horse stops. i’ll often have a rider skip on the ground or walk on the horse while swinging her legs to learn the rhythm. Q: Do you use spurs with a young horse? Kathy Connelly: Te whip amplifes; the spur refnes. Te spur can be appropriate with a young horse, especially if he doesn’t understand how to go sideways. i use the whip as a timing wand. together, Connelly and Steiner are a funny, friendly, focused pair who enjoy teaching and are passionate about dressage. Teir clinics are sure to please.

eke”—that’s exodus—“kind of found me,” says owner Joanne Sekor. Almost three years old, and a sale horse at trainer Jennifer Benoit’s Seahorse Stable, he was “so cute and friendly: a real snuggle-bunny. My daughter made friends with him. Ten i started watching him; so did Jen; we both thought he had some potential. eventually i said, ‘Let’s buy him,’ and i put in an ofer.” Sekor had ridden hunter/jumpers before college, family, and a career teaching science in Massachusetts. “Ten i had a bout with breast cancer. And when i fnished my treatments, i needed something to get me out and going again.” She and her husband took a trip south, “got to Wellington, fell in love with it—and i fell in love with dressage. We decided to get a home down here, and i decided to learn dressage and buy a dressage horse.” Sekor began training with Benoit, who found her a German Riding Pony that suited her nicely. So “when Joanne frst commented on Zeke, i didn’t think too much of it; i doubted she’d be interested in a three-year-old horse.” A month later, when Sekor again expressed interest, “i urged her to consider that a young horse with an amateur rider doesn’t always work out so well. But after discussing the pros and cons, she decided to go ahead—and ofered me the opportunity to ride and train Zeke. “He was a little rambunctious in the beginning—he’d just been gelded—and very athletic in the paddock and the lunge paddock. But he did seem to have a good work ethic,” Benoit says. She focused frst on “getting him developed a little. He’s a smaller-framed horse; we wanted to make sure he’d come along in his own time when he was ready for it. “it just happened that he was peaking and doing really well in Five-Year-old work just about the time the Young

Horse Championships qualifer was happening a mile from my house,” Benoit continues. “So we gave it a whirl, and he did beautifully.” At the 2014 Markel/USeF Young Horse Championships, Zeke fnished ninth overall. owner and trainer both delight in the way Zeke “really seems to enjoy the challenge of dressage,” Benoit says. “Tere’s something very playful in the way he approaches his work; if he thinks he knows what you might be wanting next, he’ll ofer it. He defnitely wants to please his rider.” Sekor agrees: “Right now he’s working on his changes, and he’s so concentrated on getting them right—‘let me do it!’ He thinks it’s a game, and he wants to win the game!’” “Having a horse this talented to mold and shape from the beginning, and with a wonderful attitude as well, is a real treat,” Benoit says. “But because he ofers so much, we want to avoid the temptation to overface him in any way. So we plan each week according to what he’s ready for. i’d rather focus on getting him to the next level without the pressure of a particular show date. And so far, just aiming to show at the level he’s ready for has served us well.” Benoit says she and Sekor are “in for the long haul. We hope to see Zeke become an international-quality horse, and we don’t want to do anything that’s stressful or difcult for him. Tere are little victories every day: correct half-passes, learning the changes—and Joanne’s right there sharing the learning and the achievement.” Sekor agrees: “it’s such fun watching a young horse learn and grow and develop into his potential. i’m having the best time!” “So many people go searching for just the right horse,” Benoit says. “to have Zeke ‘land in our laps’ was such good fortune—and i didn’t see it for a month!” —D.

’m an amateur,” Dantia Benson says, “and at sixty-eight i still love to start babies. i train them up to Prix St. Georges competition and schooling i-i, then sell them on. i have two three-year-olds now, an eight-year-old that i’m competing”—her 2010 Adequan/USDF Materiale Horse of the Year, Bad Boy—“and two Dutch babies that are coming along.” Benson bought “Diesel” last March in Denmark. She and a Danish friend “went to the Danish stallion show and also the stallion auction; i bought Diesel at the auction.” She also liked another horse she rode there—and liked his training so much that she sent Diesel to that horse’s trainer for three months. “Ten, when i brought him home, i also brought Marie Paulsen, the rider who’d worked with him at the trainer’s, and she spent two weeks here helping me learn to ride him as he’d been ridden in Denmark: connecting in the contact a little more than i’m used to, and riding more forward than i’m used to. “So he got an excellent education before i brought him home. Ten to have his trainer spend two weeks with me— what a nice experience! And even his having been at the stallion show was helpful: He got exposed enough to everything happening there—trucks running around, odd noises, big bangs—that when he came here, the things you might expect would spook a youngster didn’t afect him.” Benson decided to show Diesel in Materiale classes “just to give him some exposure to being in an arena without pressure. And he went to the show grounds and was a gentleman. i was nervous about him showing because he’s a little diferent from the standard horse of today. But obvi-

ously the judges saw the things i saw in him, because he did very well. “He has a really nice walk, but it’s a walk you have to be cautious of because it can have a tendency to go lateral. i’m having to learn to work with it; i haven’t had a horse with a walk this big before. His canter is lovely; his trot is nice and will become even nicer as he learns how to carry himself. i feel a lot of good, positive things in this horse: He is a little bit spooky and can be a little bit fresh, but he has the best intentions and he is a workhorse: He is willing to get out there and do the job and learn. it’s a nice feeling.” Benson recently started working with 2011 Pan Am Games competitor Marisa Festerling “because she’s had such success with young horses. i want her to help me to go down the correct path with my youngsters.” Te path for Diesel, Benson says, is “training, mostly, using Marisa’s knowledge and his confdence to guide us: Does he go up the levels? Do we try to do the Young Horse classes? Do i just keep him home, school him more, and put him in a show here and there? With the right balance, i feel he has a good chance to move up the levels. i’ve learned over the years to take a deep breath and not try to do too much. “He’s a little bit nervous, but i can give him confdence if i stay calm, stay light, let him express himself—even if he gets a little ‘over the top’—and then go again. Let him be himself, but within a parameter where i can guide him. “i want to have him as a keeper—to have him stay around, to enjoy the process of making him a star, to have a long relationship with him, and to do the best we can.” —D.

Danae MF


D

anae is a star in more ways than one. Te Rising Star daughter is named for the mother of mythical hero Perseus (who has his own constellation). And she’s breeder Maryanna Haymon’s fourth consecutive Traveling Trot award winner. Haymon describes the flly as “a nice medium-bodied, medium-boned horse. Her mom’s a little on the heavy side; we were looking for Doctor Wendell to give her a little more refnement and expression in the gaits, and we got exactly what we hoped. We expect her to be 16.2 when she fnishes growing.” She adds: “She’s double Donnerhall through Doctor Wendell and Rubenstein through her mother, with one dabble of Sandro Hit and two lines of Toroughbred in her. Te Sandro Hit comes out in her elegance and her expression.” Danae was Haymon’s frst 2014 baby. twenty minutes after checking and turning out the broodmares, her longtime barn manager “saw Rising Star—who’d shown no signs of labor—lying down in the feld and Danae being born!” A little later, after standing and nursing for the frst time, the baby walked across the feld to follow her mother into the barn. After that entrance, Haymon says, it’s no surprise that Danae’s “the boss of the feld. i’ve seen her go out with two ‘alpha’ mares; if she says, ‘Get out of my way,’ they get out of her way. She doesn’t pin her ears, doesn’t bite, doesn’t make an aggressive move; she just has this air that she’s in charge. if a car pulls of the road when she’s in the feld, she marches right up to the fence and investigates.”

For the Love of the Horse...

Te flly “took to showing in hand as if she’d been born doing it: She knows how to pose and stand up, pay attention to the handler—but she also knows where the judges are. You never have to stop or slow down excessively to turn a corner: Just give her a half-halt and she balances herself, using her hindquarters to power of and lift the front end.” Danae has already shown “an inclination toward the ‘three P’s’: pirouette, passage, and piafe. She’s been doing pirouettes and turns on the haunches since she was three days old. You can collect her into a passage-type trot. And she does fying changes—although you can’t count them; they’re not all twos or all threes or all fours—on a straight line. i think she’s got the talent for the Grand Prix, and the temperament: She wants to be the center of attention, and she’ll do what it takes to be it.” However, Haymon adds a caution: “Horses are born with the talent for the upper levels if that’s the breeder’s goal and if she’s done her homework. Te problem comes when they’re four and fve and six years old and ofering piafe and passage: You have to be the responsible party who says, ‘oh, that’s very nice; that’s wonderful. But let’s put it away for now.’” Up to now, Haymon says of her champion flly, “i haven’t put a price tag on her. if somebody ofered very big money, she’d be sold, but i’m not in any rush. i’d like to see what develops; i think she could go all the way to the top of the international sport. i’ve never before had a foal with quite so much self-confdence. She knows her place in the world.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

No one Better


i

n summer 2013, shopping for a novice-level event horse, veterinarian Barbara Lightner found an attractive eightyear-old mare that she tried, bought, and brought home. Her trainer, Jennifer Roth—who does a weekly teach-andtrain “house call” at Lightner’s barn in ohio—assessed the new mare as having “three good gaits and a concept of being round, but no concrete picture of dressage.” She also had no competition experience. Tat fall and winter, Roth schooled “Piper” in fatwork while Lightner tried to focus on jumping. But after months of efort, including lessons and clinics, Lightner says, “We just couldn’t get on the same page.” Roth agreed that Piper “seemed more scared over fences than was typical. We had several professionals sit on her, and everybody came up with pretty much the same read: She’s athletic over fences, and you could make her do it, but she’s not an amateur’s ride. She’s very forward-thinking and very sensitive; if she gets worried, she becomes even more so.” Lightner “wasn’t ready to give up eventing, but i also wasn’t willing to sell Piper. eventually, Jennifer suggested the mare might just need a new job. i said, ‘Maybe she does— so why don’t you take her to a dressage show?’” Roth took her, “and the mare did well. We continued going to dressage shows, and she did really well.” At home, Roth had been grounding Piper in “the basics: the training scale; making sure she was relaxed and moving forward. As i said, she’s very forward-thinking, so that part was easy. Luckily, she’s super-bright, has an amazing work ethic, never says no. She wants to please. And she thrives on the good kind of pressure.” Teir one training challenge? “Barb has a busy practice,

so we get together just once a week,” Roth says. “one week i ride Piper and teach Barb on another horse; the next week, she rides Piper. Luckily, Barb does an amazing job riding her in between. And the mare’s a sponge; she just doesn’t forget. So i can pick up where i left of.” At Piper’s frst recognized show, last May, Roth “was just thinking about qualifying for Regionals. Ten we got some scores in the eighties, and i started thinking maybe this could be a ‘top 20’ horse. We did our last recognized show in August, then kind of rested on our scores. i kept telling Barb, ‘Piper has a great median score, but the reporting period goes until october 15. So don’t get your hopes up.’ Ten october 15 came and went—and i thought, ‘Wow!’” Roth has already competed Piper a little at First Level, so next year, she says, “we’ll do more First Level; we’ve already started working on Second Level at home. And Barb did a couple of dressage shows and liked the experience, so one of my goals is for her to enjoy showing Piper at training Level. i’d love to have her qualify and compete the mare at Regionals in Adult Amateur training Level while i show her at First and Second Levels, and maybe have Barb showing at First Level by season’s end. i want Piper’s owner to have as much fun with her as i have!” “i don’t know how far up the levels we can go,” Lightner says, “but Jen is very patient and gives very clear instruction. She’s done an awesome job. i think Piper will turn into a very solid competition horse, and we’ll both be happy with whatever she’s comfortable doing.” of Piper, Lightner says: “She’s an example of why it’s wise to have patience and try to listen to what your horse is telling you about what he wants to do.” —D.

aving decided to add breeding to her RoseLane Sporthorses and Ponies operation, Melissa Mulchahey was watching the live-streamed 2011 Westfalen pony auction when she spotted a colt she liked. “His color was beautiful, and i knew he had good bloodlines,” including an international-champion full sister, she said. “His genotype and phenotype were very much what i was looking for” in a breeding stallion. Although she’d seen the two-year-old only on line, Mulchahey felt confdent enough to contact the owners. “He wasn’t really for sale, but they agreed to sell him to me.” Mulchahey took ownership of the youngster she named Golden State early in his three-year-old year but arranged to keep him with his previous owners for the year, while his breeding career began. And he “really started coming into his own as he began to be ridden: His ridability and the quality in his gaits started coming through.” After a “moderately successful” breeding season, Mulchahey entered “Goldi” in the 2012 German regional championships, “and, lo and behold, he won! So he was invited to the international championships. Tere he produced a recordsetting average score of 9.56, the highest ever for a pony or horse at the Bundeschampionate”—and became the frst-ever US-owned horse to win a Bundeschampionate title. Knowing Goldi would attract “a lot of breedings,” Mulchahey kept him in Germany for most of his four-year-old year. in november 2013 she brought him to California and turned him over to trainer Kelly Casey, who was already working with several of her ponies. Because Goldi was “one of the frst truly top-quality German riding ponies to come to the US, we really wanted to cam-

paign him,” Casey says. owner and trainer decided to concentrate on the Great American/USDF Regional Championships, rather than the Fei Five-Year-old test, because Goldi was “pretty green” in terms of his riding education. “He’d done a lot of stallion shows but spent most of his time breeding.” Because Goldi is so young, Casey says, she and her netherlands-based trainer, Bob tenwolde, “haven’t done much with him beyond walk/trot/canter yet. But, being based in europe, Bob sees lots of ponies—and he thinks we have a very special one in Goldi.” Tis winter, Casey expects to “play a little with the fying changes. When they’re confrmed, we’ll probably show him Tird Level. We may show a little Second Level in the meantime. We’ll let him tell us what he’s ready for.” Goldi is “so sweet that you’d never know he’s a stallion,” Casey says. “We take little precautions at places like horse shows, but we can walk him with the mares and he’s never studdish.” A well-known sport-pony advocate, Mulchahey serves on the US equestrian Federation Pony task Force, “trying to get USeF to develop a ‘pony pipeline.” She explains: “Te europeans have a huge pony component, and just about every top rider now comes up through the ponies. Tey’re ‘fun-sized,’ they’re handy, and they’re sporty to train and to ride. As i get older, i think they’re not so hard on my back— and also not so far from the ground. i’d like to make more riders aware of them.” And with Goldi, Casey adds, “people see what a pony can be. He’s not ‘just’ a pony. He’s everything a big horse is, just in a small package.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

athleen Mitchell Petersen discovered dressage at 13 and focused on it “up through Young Riders”; by then her mother (and earliest riding instructor), Susan Mitchell, was riding a Tird Level horse. But in 2000 Petersen “took a hiatus from riding to do things like fnish college.” Soon afterward, her mother also stepped away. Five or six years later, Petersen started getting back into horses, buying a young oldenburg and a Toroughbred “project” horse. “Ten my mom started riding again—and she wanted to buy a horse.” Te Florida-based pair went to Pennsylvania to see a prospect—“and the barn owner said, ‘it’s a shame to come all this way and see just one horse. My friend has a mare’—and we both thought, ‘We don’t want a mare!’” Te mare was Aurora. Ten two and a half, with “four inches of coat, she looked like a woolly mammoth. She was plain bay—as plain as plain gets—with just a small left-hind white sock. We thought, ‘Ugh.’ But then she started moving, and she had this gorgeous trot, with lots of suspension. next thing you know, we were mare owners!” Tough “very hot and very ‘up,’” the mare “broke really easily,” Petersen says. “When i break babies, the frst time we trot, somebody else has the horse in hand. But when Aurora started trotting, she just left my ground person—and her trot was so good that we were both laughing.” Around that time, Mitchell and Petersen bred the mare; “unfortunately, she lost that frst foal.” Also around that time, they bought what today is their Annwynn equestrian Center in Sefner, FL, but then was “eighteen acres of cow pasture, with no arena. And Aurora was not a horse to train without one. So she had time of until we got the place built. Ten we bred her again—successfully—and, after weaning the baby, started her into serious work.”

Te mare was still fairly hot; so for help, Petersen turned to olympian Michael Poulin, who’d been her Young Riders trainer, and whose Florida barn was not far away. “He took one look and said, ‘You need to work with her twice a day.’ “Sure enough, after fve months of two daily sessions— just lungeing in the morning and working in the afternoon—she got through the heat enough to settle down and focus. And she’s turned out to have a terrifc work ethic. We go to the Poulins’ a couple of times a month; Michael is back in Maine, but Sharon, his wife, took us on. “You know the saying that dressage is all about partnership? Aurora used to get scared at anything, but now she looks to me for confdence. if she starts worrying, i lean down and talk to her and pat her.” Petersen “can almost hear her thinking, ‘i don’t like that thing, but i trust you.’ And she gets over it.” Te day before the test for their fnal Horse of the Year score, Petersen recalls, “We had a bad rainstorm with lightning. Tere was no way i could ride her. So she was very fresh going into the test. When i got on, she squealed; when i asked for a lengthening, she cow-kicked. i wasn’t sure i wanted to show. But Sharon gave me a look that said, ‘Suck it up and get in there.’ “We walked in on a long rein—and as soon as i took a contact, i felt her relax. We got a 76.” Petersen aims to bring Aurora out at Tird Level “in late winter or early spring. We’ve played around a little with canter pirouettes; i hope that by the end of this season we’ll be doing Fourth Level. Being a little older, she’s able to go through the levels fairly quickly. So she’s catching up to where she’s ‘supposed to be.’ “i’ve never had a horse so incredibly talented, yet so hot. Te Poulins have helped me tremendously. With their guidance, we’ve been really successful.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Hemmingway Owner: Teresa Schnell, Boonville, Indiana Rider: angela Jackson, Henderson, Kentucky Breeder: angela Barilar, Chestertown, Maryland 84 February 2015 • USDF ConneCtion

SuSanjStickle.com

2008 bay 17.2-hand oldenburg stallion Sire: Hofrat • Dam: alsonara


W

hen Rock Solid Warmbloods owner Teresa Schnell frst saw Hemmingway, “he was three days old, going across a feld” at Maryland breeder Angela Barilar’s operation. “And i said, ‘omigod, Angela! Who’s that?’” Schnell made an ofer for the foal, which Barilar declined then but accepted a month later, “saying she knew i’d give him a good home. At the time, he was the only Hofrat colt in the country, so i decided to raise him as a stallion prospect.” When the colt was two and a half, Schnell sent him to Hilltop Farm (MD) head trainer Michael Bragdell. Te pairing worked well: Bragdell rode Hemmingway to the 2012 Markel/USeF Four-Year-old national title and the 2013 Great American/USDF Region 1 First Level open championship—but, not then a US citizen, couldn’t compete him at the US Dressage Finals. Later that year, Schnell decided to move Hemmingway to Kentucky-based trainer Angela Jackson, who’d already been working with her barn’s “mainstay” stallion, Rock Solid, for several years “and done very well with him.” Jackson assessed the newcomer as “an impressive, long-legged horse who needed a little more strength for the work at this level. Te goal was the Six-Year-old test; i was debating whether to do Second Level or go to Tird Level,” but soon sensed that “the Second Level work was backing him of because there are so many transitions. once he got his body moving, Tird Level was much more suited to him. So after he learned the changes, i said, ‘Let’s just stay with Tird Level.’ obviously, that’s been the right choice.” Hemmingway has had “an incredible year,” Jackson says. “He won the Six-Year-old Markel/USeF Young Horse class last May before international judges; we missed going to

Germany by a fraction. to come back after that and be reserve champion at the Fei Six-Year-old Final was obviously very encouraging for us. And then to win the Tird Level Regional Championship and now the national championship [the 2014 US Dressage Finals Tird Level open Freestyle title]—we couldn’t be more proud of him.” Hemmingway is already “schooling all of the Fourth Level,” Jackson says. “He’s done one Fourth Level test; he won it with a score in the seventies. now we want to build the strength to hold the kind of collection he’ll need, because it’s a big step up to Prix St. Georges. At seven, he’ll be a bit green to start doing Prix St. Georges, but his trainability is a ‘10.’ i just need to be patient and let him develop the strength. So my primary goal for next year is to have him really, really solid at Fourth Level. “i’d like to get into the Prix St. Georges Developing program, but we’d have to score in the seventies to even qualify—and for a seven-year-old to get into the seventies the frst time out would be incredibly difcult. So it’s a goal we’d really have to work hard for. But it’s a goal; making it would be a huge achievement.” “i’m very lucky to have a horse like this,” Jackson continues. “Hemmingway is incredible—and so gentle that i can put a kid on him and do a lunge-line lesson; that’s how special he is. i cannot say thank you enough to Teresa Schnell and Rock Solid Warmbloods.” Schnell, in turn, says: “Angela’s a great friend and a superb trainer and rider. She and i are on the same page: We set goals, but then we let the horse decide. if the horse is not ready, we don’t push. We won’t risk his well-being for the sake of a ribbon.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

on tesoro came to seven-time Adequan/USDF Horse of the Year trainer and USeF “S” judge Sandi Chohany after an amateur owner realized that “Dan” was more horse than she could handle. “He was bolting around, an accident waiting to happen. He wasn’t mean. He was scared to death”—a lingering efect, she says, of the european auction process that gets youngsters “going around like Grand Prix horses in thirty days. People buy them, bring them home, and think that’s where they can start—with thirty days of training!” So Chohany, who’d come to dressage after riding jumpers and eventers and working on the racetrack, “treated the horse like a Toroughbred: every day i’d get on, we’d go to the arena, we’d walk in with our noses on the ground, and we’d never take a straight step. We’d make circles. “After three frustrating months, i was still saying, ‘Please move away from my leg.’ Ten one day he said, ‘i know what you want! You want me to go to the ground!’ And he did it. Te next day, we came out and he did it again. And again. So i started asking for diferent things, never going straight: things like shoulder-in, leg-yield, half-pass. it didn’t have to be good, just an attempt. Ten i’d turn him out. “i took him to California for the winter” (Chohany’s yearly escape from bitter illinois cold). “We went out on the trails; he saw coyotes, he had deer jumping out at him”—and he didn’t finch. During that winter, “the owner wanted to sell him, so i showed him.” Someone contacted the owner, “who called me and asked would i take him to this address? And i said no, because he wasn’t ready for an amateur,” which the prospective buyer was.

instead, Chohany started talking about the horse to Susan Ashbrook, whose California barn apartment she rents in winter. “She’s a beautiful rider, but a little shy. She didn’t think she could ride him, but she has an enclosed lunge ring; i said, ‘Why don’t you just sit on him and i’ll lunge you?’ Ten i asked him to canter. He did, and Susan started yelling ‘Stop! He’s running away with me!’ He’s so powerful; she’d never been on anything like it. “i told Susan about refusing to take Dan to an amateur— and i told her, ‘Give me this much money and i promise that you will be able to ride this horse. i love him, and i’ll make him right for you.’ And she agreed.” After Ashbrook got comfortable riding Dan, “the only thing he needed was to go to shows” and learn to be less nervous, Chohany says. Chohany, 70, is retired from showing, “so i asked my best rider, Heather McCarthy, to take him to every single show, everywhere, every class. Te frst time, he was as nervous as a cat. Along about the fourth time, he said, ‘oh, this again?’” Says McCarthy: “We weren’t showing to earn points. But suddenly we started looking at his scores and realized we could get Horse of the Year with him.” today, Dan is settled into Ashbrook’s barn, and Chohany “will get to see him when i go there in the wintertime and put the new ‘tricks’ on him.” She and Ashbrook have been looking at the 2015 show lineup, and Ashbrook defnitely plans to show her horse herself. “i know he’ll go Grand Prix,” Chohany says. “At Fourth Level, as you’ve noticed, he’s perfect. And the rest will come.”

n 2013, a friend recommended that longtime elite-level horse owner Akiko Yamazaki and her trainer, olympic dressage veteran Stefen Peters, take a look at a six-yearold mare named Rosamunde. Yamazaki was a bit dubious: “it would be really hard for me to tell whether a six-year-old is going to be a Grand Prix horse.” But when they saw the mare, “Stefen was absolutely in love. i asked him, ‘Are you sure you have two more olympics in you?’—fguring the 2020 Games as when the young mare might be ready. And he said, ‘Absolutely.’” Peters’s frst impression of “Rosie” was that she “certainly didn’t look like a six-year-old. She was already nicely developed. And my friend Henri Ruoste”—a Finnish rider based in Germany—“who rode her before me, did a wonderful job with her. At that time she was very green, with single fying changes, but she showed already, and she did a little passage and two or three steps of piafe. “i can easily fall in love with a horse on the frst day,” Peters admits, “and trying to contain my excitement was diffcult.” He “felt just as excited on my second trip to see her, and each time i watched the video confrmed my feeling.” Bought by Yamazaki’s Four Winds Farm, Rosie frst competed in the US at Tird Level in September 2013. “Since then,” Peters says, “and especially this year in europe, she has developed into a steady small-tour horse. every time i get on her, she is willing to work, always moving forward into a nice elastic contact that brings wonderful memories of Ravel. And we always knew she had a fabulous trot, but her canter and her walk are of equal quality.” Highlights of 2014? “Certainly the [USeF Dressage] Festival of Champions, where Rosie won the i-i and Prix St. Georges championships at age seven. Ten she topped that

achievement with two incredible performances at Fritzens [Austria], where she won the Prix St. Georges and did even better in the i-i, with a 76 percent” (and, Yamazaki notes, “was the youngest horse in the feld”). Despite a bout of pneumonia that landed him in the hospital and derailed his hopes of competing at Aachen, Peters says, “We had so many wonderful comments from people who saw Rosie in europe. i’d love to know how to bottle that experience and preserve it.” Yamazaki was pleased at how Rosie “maturely handled the whole experience, making it look so easy. She traveled from California to Gladstone and then to europe, and it seemed that nothing fazed her. She coped like a pro.” Back home, Peters’ training program continues to build Rosie’s strength and correctness while keeping her unfazed. “We work a little bit on the Grand Prix movements: specifcally, maybe the pirouette twice a week; we practice maybe a couple of half-passes in trot. During the week we don’t practice any extensions. Because they’re working well already, we leave those for the show arena.” Most important? “After a couple of movements, we take a little walk break.” Peters “can’t remember a day when i saw even a drop of sweat on Rosie. Sometimes i ride her for forty-fve minutes to an hour, but at least twenty minutes of the workout is walking.” With 2015 being a Pan Am Games year, there’s temptation to think big, Yamazaki says—but the mare will be only eight, and “Stefen is the master at knowing how much to do. We’ll see how the season goes.” Peters himself says he’ll be “listening very carefully to what Rosie tells me, and making decisions on that basis.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

o,” says Jamie Pestana. “i didn’t name him.” Winzalot came to her—with that name—in 2007, when she was 14 and he was three. Dennis Callin, with whom she was then training, had found him in Germany and sent him to her “as a project horse. Te plan was that i’d develop and resell him. But the horse i’d been trying for Juniors on got injured, and the injury turned out to be more of a problem than expected. So we ended up keeping ‘Winnie.’ “At frst he was very naughty; i didn’t think i wanted him.” But before long she “could see he was very bright”; for example, “he learned fying changes in a day.” By age six he was doing Tird and Fourth Levels “and was much more a partner than a sale project.” He qualifed for the 2010 north American Junior and Young Rider Championships and won other awards, as well. “Tere was no more thinking about selling him.” Winnie “jumped up to Prix St. Georges the next year and stayed there for a few years because i was Young Riders age and wanted to continue doing Young Riders.” Te pair qualifed for the 2011 nAJYRC—but Winnie colicked 10 days before the competition. He had surgery, developed an allergic reaction to his stitches, had a second surgery to replace the stitches with metal staples, and underwent a third surgery to remove the staples after “his system started pushing them out through his stomach.” (He also got put on “allergy shots and a pretty restricted diet. He used to be quite itchy and irritable; now he’s much more comfortable with himself.”) to keep the new incision closed, Winnie was ftted with “a tight bellyband. He could be ridden, but he’d have to wear the bellyband. So we rehabbed him in the bellyband, bareback, and got him pretty much back to full work.” (Because he’s never been an ‘easy’ horse, Pestana adds, “people said ‘Tat’s crazy’ when i told them i planned to get on him bare-

back after a year of. But he never did anything wrong. He just went back to work.”) “About a month before the frst 2012 nAJYRC qualifer, we took of the bellyband and put a saddle on him. He qualifed, but we probably went a little faster than we might have. Still, he ended up with the Young Riders individual silver.” “in 2013 we decided to give nAJYRC one last try,” Pestana says. With help from her mother and at-home trainer, nadine Pestana, “We qualifed and wound up with team gold and individual and freestyle silver.” Pestana started schooling Winnie at i-i in 2012-2013, “but 2014 has been our ‘i-i season.’ We put him there because it was where he was ready to be, and it’s turned out to be probably the strongest level he’s ever done. He’s really had fun with it. Tere was no pressure to qualify for anything, and he ended up kind of winning everything!” Pestana also took advantage of a USeF training grant to work with trainer Jeremy Steinberg in San Diego. Although she had considered aiming Winnie for the Under 25 Grand Prix in 2015, Pestana decided that “because he’s so comfortable in i-i—and because this, being a Pan Am year, is such a big year for i-i—we’ll continue doing the small tour while we develop what he’ll need for the Under 25.” Besides, 2015 “will be my frst year competing in the open divisions; that will be a challenge in itself.” And she’s also working to fnish the requirements for her exercise-biology major/psychology minor degree at UC Davis “so i can graduate in June and then spend the next year concentrating on the Under 25. “Winnie’s young, and i’m young; there’s no reason to push him. So we’ll take it one step at a time and see where that leads us, with an eye toward the Under 25 for next year. He’s almost there.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

atherine Bateson-Chandler started grooming and riding for olympian Robert Dover while in high school—and continued for 16 years. When Dover retired from his teaching/training business, longtime client Jane Forbes Clark, who owned his horses, and whom Chandler had been teaching, “asked if i’d like to take over the rides on them. i said, ‘of course!’” Five years later, wanting a young horse to bring along for herself, Bateson-Chandler found Alcazar (“Lonzie”) in Holland. “turning seven, he’d basically done Second and Tird Level stuf. Carl [2012 British olympic team gold medalist Carl Hester, with whom she’s trained for the past six summers] came with me to try him and agreed he had the ability for Grand Prix.” Alcazar “has a bit of a cheeky personality,” BatesonChandler says. “i have to be fair to him, but i also have to keep my thumb on him a little. He’s not a horse you can bully into anything, or school around and around in the ring.” Fortunately, “in Wellington there’s a big track around the farm where we can do Grand Prix training, and an open jumping feld with a lovely riding surface. in england, we hack on local roads for an hour twice a week. Getting out is great for his brain—and if you can stimulate him in a positive way, he’ll work for you all day long.” Bateson-Chandler has a “go-to” trio of advisors. Besides Hester, there’s olympian Debbie McDonald, who’s now the USeF national dressage developing coach. now Florida-based, “Debbie helps me here in the winter, maybe four days a week; she’s also come to england a couple of times to work with Carl and me.” Ten there’s longtime mentor Dover; “i ride in his high-performance classes, and i call him for advice.” in the nearly three years Bateson-Chandler’s had Lonzie, he’s competed at Prix St. Georges and i-ii. She reminds her-

self frequently that he’s “only nine years old: kind of young for a Grand Prix horse. So i’m trying to ride him not as a trained horse, but as a bit of a green horse—and to school him in the [show] arena, which is a new experience for me. it’s been great learning how to do that, and to stay focused on the bigger picture: not on getting the best score today, but on getting to the olympics in two years.” For her part, Clark is “impressed by the way Katherine has brought Alcazar along. Tat their partnership has evolved into a very competitive combination is wonderful; i thank not only Katherine but everyone with team Clark whose tremendous eforts went into making Alcazar intermediate ii Horse of the Year!” Tis spring, Bateson-Chandler plans to continue to help Lonzie “learn to go away from home” by letting him spend time relaxing at showgrounds around Wellington. Last summer in england, which has “lots of demos and master classes in very big venues, every one Carl went to, we went along. And every time, the horse got a little better about not getting tense in a big environment.” Lonzie has done “some national Grands Prix in england. in the last one, we were quite happy that he got almost a 70 percent,” Bateson-Chandler says. “My goal is to go in a few more national Grands Prix until we really have them down, and then take him to the international ones. if he happens to be ready to do this year’s Pan Am selection trials, fantastic.” if not, Chandler will “defnitely take him to europe and do a bunch of internationals this summer,” with an eye toward Rio in 2016. “But he’s too special a horse to push into something too early—so exactly what we do this year will be up to him. We’ll see what he’s ready for.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

W

hat a diference three years make. “When we got Legolas, in late 2011,” owner Akiko Yamazaki remembers, “he knew the Grand Prix movements, but the last time he’d been shown was as a six-year-old! So being moved to California, and just weeks later being asked to perform a Grand Prix test. . . . even with his natural talent for piafe and passage, you could see he was overwhelmed—the proverbial ‘deer in the headlights.’” Fast-forward to August 2014 and “the huge World equestrian Games stadium at Caen, in normandy. Legolas handled it as if he were in his own arena at home,” Yamazaki says. “He’s so comfortable in his own skin that we never worried he might spook or be ‘hyper.’ Tat’s the big diference: how mature and how confdent he is.” Tat maturity and confdence were obvious on the way to Caen, too. At June’s USeF Dressage Festival of Champions in Gladstone, nJ, Legolas and rider Stefen Peters swept the Grand Prix and earned a berth on team USA for the 2014 Alltech Fei WeG. Ten horses and riders shipped to europe, aiming to do several CDis before heading to normandy. Legolas and Peters fnished a strong second at their initial competition, at Fritzens in Austria. Teir next goal was Aachen, Germany—but a bout of pneumonia intervened, sending Peters to the hospital for three weeks. He recovered in time for the show in Verden, “but i still wasn’t 100 percent,” Peters says. “i felt that Legolas really took care of me there. So our win in Verden”—with a 74.980 percent score— “was very special. And that feeling helped both of us with our confdence going to France.” Another “neat thing,” according to Peters, is “the reliable teamwork” between himself and Legolas. “i am so proud of him. it simply doesn’t get more difcult than in that big are-

na in France. especially in the freestyle, we had a full house with a lot of excited people. Going into the arena, we had to walk through a tunnel. And none of that fazed him.” even better, Legolas “went into the freestyle just as strong and energetic as he’d been in the Grand Prix on the frst day. Tis clearly showed that Akiko’s team had peaked him at the right time, so i’m equally proud of them: [wife] Shannon managing the horses, Akiko being so extremely supportive, Robert Dover and Jo Hinnemann on the sidelines, equine therapist tom Myers, and veterinarians Dr. Rodrigo Vazquez and Dr. Rick Mitchell. “A lot of people thought the US would be lucky to end up in sixth place at Caen,” Peters continues. “But, watching our entire team prepare, i thought for sure that we could do better. And we did.” Te US fnished fourth. in 2015, the Fei World Cup Dressage Final in Las Vegas is the frst focus for Legolas. Qualifers for the April competition begin in early February, Peters says. “We decided to do our frst at the fve-star in Wellington (FL), then a couple of other qualifers on the West Coast.” Te rider “may hold my breath a little if we qualify; it’s another big step. But Legolas seems to be maturing nicely.” Ten in July come the 2015 Pan American Games in toronto, for which Peters and Yamazaki hope to qualify Legolas and possibly also rising star Rosamunde (see page 88). “Tis year, a team can be four small-tour horses or two Grand Prix and two small-tour horses,” Peters says. “Te Grand Prix horses get an automatic two-percent bonus.” He adds that the Pan Am selection qualifers “include a number of shows in europe. So although our total time there will be a little shorter” than in 2014, “i think it will be a busy travel year.” —D. J. Carey Lyons
