LISA SCHMIDT ON THE SPOT: USDF president George Williams and US Dressage Finals Organizing Committee chair Janine Malone field questions and feedback during the 2015 Board of Governors assembly

The number of competitors at Regional Championships has grown as riders vie for invitations to the Finals. As the Finals grew in stature, the Executive Board began receiving increasing numbers of comments from USDF members that the event should remain at the Kentucky Horse Park permanently. Over the past year, former USDF secretary and Region 1 director Janine Malone, who chairs the US Dressage Finals Organizing Committee, and I visited many potential venues in the western US, seeking an appropriate western location so that the Finals could rotate as the BOG had intended. After making our on-site visits and extensively comparing such factors as physical setup, costs, amenities offered, and travel distances, Janine and I recommended that the Executive Board consider the HITS Desert Horse Park in Thermal, CA, southeast of Palm Springs. It was the one venue that we felt could easily accommodate the complex needs of the US Dressage Finals and whose good footing and stabling would continue to attract competitors. The Executive Board supported the proposal and approved further negotiations with the HITS facility and budgeting for the 2017 Finals’ being held in

t was business as usual for the most part at the 2015 Adequan/USDF Annual convention, December 2-5. However, we were in Las Vegas—so, as evidenced by many attendees’ Facebook posts, it was not all routine budgets, elections, and awards. (For a complete report on the activities as well as the festivities, turn to page 58.) One hot-button issue typically surfaces during the convention, and in Las Vegas the main topic was the future location of the US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan. There was—and continues to be—so much discussion around this issue that I want to devote this space to explaining why the Finals have been held in Kentucky since their inception and what may (or may not) happen going forward. Four years ago, at the 2011 convention in San Diego, the USDF Board of Governors (BOG)—USDF’s governing body, composed of delegates representing USDF’s group and participating members—passed a motion to create the US Dressage Finals: a national head-to-head championships for top adult-amateur and open riders from the Great American Insurance Group/USDF Regional Championships series of competitions. The motion stated that the Finals “is proposed to rotate every three years from east to west.” The inaugural Finals were held in 2013 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, and the 2014 and 2015 editions were held there, as well. Based on the original approved motion, 2016 would have been the year to rotate the Finals’ location. However, in 2014, the search for suitable alternative venues was still ongoing, and the USDF Executive Board voted to delay the move by one year. This made 2017 the new target year for a move. In its three years of existence, the US Dressage Finals has established itself as a true destination competition.

bone, like an Olympic medal. A modest reward can do much to buoy the spirits and make us feel that for once—at last!—we did something right amid the struggles to sit the trot, to keep that horse’s damned outside shoulder from escaping to the right all the time, and to produce something resembling a credible leg-yield. My own dressage journey has had its share of disappointments, and I’m betting yours has too. There have been years when I watched from the sidelines with a twinge of envy as USDF members filed on stage to accept their awards at the Salute Gala & Annual Awards Banquet (coverage of the 2015 event begins on page 58). So it was an extra thrill that I was able to join the parade in Las Vegas to accept an AllBreeds award. There are grander honors to be had in dressage, of course, and maybe someday Junior and I will claim one. But never again will I underestimate the amount of dedication, work, and yes, luck that it takes to reach even a modest milestone. If a success comes your way, savor it. Then give thanks for the healthy, sound horse that enabled that success, and enjoy every moment you have with him!

f I were in equestrian sports for the payout, I’d have switched to rodeo 20 years ago. When I was the editor of an allbreed equine publication in upstate New York, my publisher was a team roper, my advertising sales manager was a barrel racer, and the ad manager’s husband was a steer wrestler. During the competition season, I would regularly be regaled with tales of the previous evening’s wins—described as “a trip to the pay window.” I, a lifelong English rider, was astonished. “You mean you won money?” I asked. They did indeed. On a modestly successful night, they might win back their entry fees. If they did really well, they’d actually make money. Money, as we English riders know, is not the usual prize at our shows. We’re supposed to be in it for the intangibles—personal satisfaction, feedback on our progress, fun with our horses— the sole physical rewards being pieces of satin ribbon or perhaps a trophy. Major competitions, such as the Great American/USDF Regional Dressage Championships, do offer prize money, but as a rule cash awards are, well, not the rule. Don’t get me wrong: Those intangibles are why I love dressage, and why I show. The external rewards come too few and far between to sustain us, and true horsemen aren’t motivated purely by points and ribbons. That said, dressage is hard. It’s fabulous, but it’s frustrating. The investment (of time, money, heart, soul, sweat, blood, tears) is significant, and the inevitable setbacks can be crushing. There is a reason Olympian Steffen Peters calls dressage “the most difficult sport on the planet.” So please don’t kill me for saying this, but every once in a while, if the universe throws us a bone in the form of a dressage award or prize, it feels…wonderful. It doesn’t even have to be a huge

Thermal. However, the board felt that, inasmuch as it was the BOG that had green-lighted the Finals’ creation, it was only appropriate for the BOG to once again determine the future of the Finals. For more than two hours during its assembly at the 2015 convention in Las Vegas, the BOG held a spirited discussion about the US Dressage Finals: Should they remain at the Kentucky Horse Park, or should they move west? Delegates raised many questions: Is it too soon to move west? Would it be better to hold off on a move until the siteselection committee identifies a suitable venue or location that’s situated in a more central part of the western US (i.e., not so close to the West Coast or so far to the south)? Will a western location create an incentive for more riders to compete in dressage and thereby help to grow the sport in that part of our country? Should we not give USDF’s western regions that opportunity? How would a move west affect Finals attendance? Would we lose so many competitors from the eastern regions that the Finals’ long-term financial feasibility would become questionable? What makes a Finals a bona fide national competition? What about the many top West Coast combinations who are currently unwilling or unable to make the long trip to Kentucky? Is the US Dressage Finals truly a national championships if many of the eligible top combinations do not attend? If we do move, will we lose access to the Kentucky Horse Park? Each question brought up more valid concerns, ultimately making any decision even more difficult. For so many of the questions, there was no simple and definitive answer. When the vote was finally tallied, the BOG had elected to keep the Finals in Kentucky “until such time as the western USDF Regions 5, 6, 7, and 9 can come forth with a proposed venue site and dates that the four regions agree are appropriate to host the National Finals.” A follow-up motion, also approved, states that “any recommendation for a change of venue and date be

subject to the approval of the USDF Executive Board, after receiving the recommendation of the appointed site-selection committee.” The BOG then voted on a third motion, “to establish a travel fund to aid competitors traveling from long distances to attend the USDF National Finals, effective for the 2017 Finals.” This motion, which passed, will require the Executive Board to establish criteria to define “long distances” and to determine a feasible manner in which to best achieve the intended goal of the motion. Perhaps most interesting, when I looked at the final tally of votes by region, is that the issue of the Finals’ location is not a question of “east versus west.” There was support for, and opposition to, a move expressed by delegates from every region. In the end, although there were passionate arguments on both sides, I am very proud of how the BOG tackled this very difficult and delicate decision. At the convention, another sensitive issue was addressed and put to rest, at least for the time being. As you know, the issue of helmet awareness and the use of protective headgear in dressage has made tremendous strides forward. Correspondingly, the USDF has received comments and complaints that our logo depicts a rider in a top hat and not in a helmet. Furthermore, it pictures a male rider, while the majority of our members are female. The Executive Board has been pursuing a solution to this dilemma for the past couple of years. After a meeting in May 2013, the board announced that it was seeking suggestions for what a new logo might look like. There were very few responses, so we had our art director, Karl Lawrence, quietly work on this project. Finally, at the 2015 convention, we felt we had a potential new logo for our regional directors to present at their regional meetings for feedback. The message back was overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the current USDF logo as it is. I am happy to report that the logo withstood a challenge and, far from making a final salute, it will remain the official image of our organization. ▲

member connection Equine Welfare Kudos to Jennifer Bryant for her December 2015/January 2016 “Ringside” editorial, “Think Globally, Act Locally.” In it, she resolves to support reputable equine welfare causes and take action if she should see any suspected abuse or neglect of our noble equine partners. She calls on each one of us in the equestrian community to join her and do the same. I would like to share an idea that my nine dressage friends and I have been implementing since 2011. We decided to form an animal-advocacy group, which we call ALF (Animal-Loving Friends). We take turns hosting dinners at one another’s homes and also donate to worthy animal charities. The hostess chooses the charity, and we each donate at least $20. We are not wealthy women, but the $200 or more donation is greatly appreciated by the designated charity. We try to meet every two or three months and keep an album to record the meetings, donations, and thank-you letters from the rescue organizations. Most of our charities have been horserelated, but we have chosen dog and cat rescues as well. So far, we have contributed more than $6,000 to these wonderful organizations, and we are highly motivated to do more. In fact, we have started a second chapter of ALF at Brookfield Farms in Clarence, NY, where I currently board my horse. For 2016, our resolution is to spread this idea across the country and network with other like-minded groups. We hope to start a Facebook page where chapters of ALF can support and congratulate each other when monies are raised. Our total of $6,000 is small in the grand scheme of things, but if multiple groups in every state were to do what we are doing— preserving precious friendships while donating to worthy animal rescues— the monetary help to relieve animal suffering could be exponential. Are you ready to accept Jennifer Bryant’s challenge? We are! Donna Winnick East Amherst, NY

As a practicing veterinarian and dressage enthusiast, I have been involved in a number of horse abuse and starvation cases, both as a veterinarian and as an expert legal witness. These cases are heart-rending and involved a spectrum of intentional abuse, drug addiction, animal hoarding, ignorance, bankruptcy, and owner health disorders. Equine sanctuaries and rescues are a great idea, but there are always cost issues, too many horses on too little land, and illness or death of the sanctuary owners or managers. Often, nothing can be done for these horses until law enforcement is involved. During the recent recession, horse abandonment and starvation reached a horrifying peak. Often, as horses get older and more infirm, they are passed from bad to worse circumstances until they end up neglected and starving to death. There is a sad spiral from competition dressage horse to schoolmaster to skinny riding-lesson hack to starvation in a dirt lot. As horse owners, we have a responsibility to understand how these things happen. These unsound horses should be put down, long before they get to the riding-lesson-hack stage. We, as horse owners, may feel that we have failed our horse if we euthanize it, but I think that we have failed if our horse dies alone of exposure and starvation. We should not feel obligated to keep a debilitated horse alive for 30 years; and if a horse is unsound and unusable and we cannot be responsible for it, euthanasia is a reasonable and humane option. What in involved with euthanizing a horse? The procedure itself is painless, and the horse knows nothing. Cost-wise, euthanizing a horse and having the carcass hauled off for tallow or buried can easily cost more than $2,000. Putting large carcasses into landfills adds grossly to atmospheric methane and carbondioxide release. If the euthanasia can be done humanely and without frightening the horse, and the meat on the carcass used for something

useful—such as pet, foxhound, condor, zoo, or wild-cat-sanctuary meat—this is the most humane and ecologically sound pathway. Right now, our oceans are being fished to extinction, in part to supply fish for cat food! Would it not be better ecology to use horse meat rather than fishing every last fish out of the sea? In California, sanctuary condors are dying of lead poisoning from eating deer meat contaminated with lead shot from hunters. Wild cats in sanctuaries and zoos need meat also. What about horse meat for human consumption? There is a market for it, both in the US and other countries. Horses currently are slaughtered for food in Mexico and Canada, and this is where most US racehorses, sadly, end up. The conditions in Mexico are too horrific to even talk about. Maybe there is a way to humanely kill some number of horses for food consumption here in the States. Maybe Debbie Stephens’ horse would still be alive. We should also decrease horse breeding in general and “pet” breeding in particular. Every stallion owner wants a full book every year, but is this the best thing for horses in general and the breed in particular? The same goes for mares: Does every brokendown mare need to be bred? If we see a starvation or abuse situation developing, it is our responsibility as horse owners to act and act fast. If polite conversation is not productive, there are state and local laws protecting animals. If necessary, animal control, law enforcement, or the prosecutor’s office need to be involved. In most abuse cases, not only is the animal owner responsible, but the land owner is also responsible, whether the land owner owns the animals or not. This is a difficult subject to explore, but I think that, given our love and devotion to our sport and our horses, some solutions can be developed that will help our equine friends.

OLYMPIC GAMES

FEI Proposes Changes to Olympic Equestrian Formats

A

t its 2015 General Assembly in Puerto Rico in November, the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) led by president Ingmar De Vos proposed radical changes to the Olympic equestrian competition formats. Responding to the Olympic Agenda 2020 recommendations as put forth by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), De Vos said: “We need to take advantage of the excitement and drama of our sport, make it easier to understand, attract young and larger audiences, be broadcast-friendly, and see more nations represented in our sport.” A cornerstone of the proposed format is three-member teams instead of the traditional four. Individual discipline formats were proposed to change as follows: Dressage: Total of 15 teams and 15 individual athletes, using heats to qualify the top 18 for the individual final. Eventing: Dressage would be condensed to a single day using a shorter test. The individual jumping phase would serve as the qualifier for the top six or seven teams to advance to the team final. A discipline name change to “equestrian triathlon” also

DEBATING THE FUTURE: FEI president Ingmar De Vos (left) and FEI Olympic-discipline chairs Frank Kemperman (dressage), John Madden (jumping), and Giuseppe Della Chiesa (eventing) explain proposed format changes to national-federation delegates at the 2015 FEI General Assembly

was suggested, to help explain the sport to a mainstream audience. Jumping: 20 teams and 15 individuals, with a jump-off for first place in both individual and team categories. If team gold is decided by a jump-off, all three team horse/ rider combinations would compete against the clock, but only the best score would count. The team-jumping format would mirror that of the

current Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup, with just the top 10 teams starting with zero penalties in the medal final. After gathering feedback at the General Assembly and refining its proposals, the FEI will present revised recommendations at the FEI Sports Forum 2016 in April. New formats will be voted on at the FEI General Assembly 2016 before being submitted to the IOC in early 2017.

OBITUARY

Monsieur

Winterprinz

T

he Danish Warmblood gelding Monsieur, 35, who with owner/ rider Charlotte Bredahl-Baker won team bronze at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, was euthanized October 17 following a colic episode. Bredahl-Baker owned Monsieur from the age of five until his death at her farm in Solvang, CA. Standing 17.3 hands and as spooky as he was statuesque and talented, the gelding put the native of Denmark on the American dressage map and helped to set BredahlBaker on a career path that has included becoming an FEI 4* dressage judge and, most recently, the USEF national dressage assistant youth coach. Monsieur was the USDF Grand Prix Horse of the Year in 1994 and 1997. He was retired at the age of 18.

T

CAREER HIGHLIGHT: Winning team bronze at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics

he Hanoverian stallion Winterprinz (Warkant x Weltmeyer) died November 29 at the farm of rider/owner Carolyn Adams in Pleasanton, CA. He was 21. According to Adams’ husband, Patrick Adams, Carolyn Adams imported Winterprinz from Germany as a three-year-old. Together they achieved many successes at the FEI levels, including competing at the 2011 US Pan American Games trials. The striking black stallion was also a wellknown sire, with progeny throughout the US and worldwide.

efore he was a big name in the dressage community, USDF executive director Stephan Hienzsch was a big name in the ski world. A member of four NCAA championship teams in the 1970s and a two-time NCAA individual champion, Hienzsch was inducted into the University of Colorado Athletics Hall of Fame in a November 5 ceremony in Boulder, CO. The honor made for a challenging week for Hienzsch, as

the induction ceremony fell on the first day of the 2015 US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan. In an e-mail to the USDF Executive Board, Hienzsch said he felt compelled to attend the ceremony but understood that the timing was less than optimal. Board members responded enthusiastically, urging him to attend. And indeed the Finals went on seamlessly, although surely Hienzsch wound up a bit more jet-lagged than he’d planned.

ntil recently, it’s been the person designated trainer on the entry form who bears responsibility for violations of the US Equestrian Federation’s drugs and medications rules at USEF-licensed competitions. But as of December 1, 2015, additional parties may be culpable. A change to USEF General Rule (GR) 404 states that, besides the trainer, “persons responsible” “may include the individual who rides, vaults, or drives the horse and/or pony during competition; the owner; and support personnel. Support personnel includes, but is not limited to, grooms, handlers, longeurs, and veterinarians if they are present at the competition or have made a relevant decision about the horse and/or pony.” GR 404 further notes that “Neither the trainer nor any persons responsible, including support personnel, may be relieved from his responsibility under the USEF’s Drugs and Medications Rules due to a lack or insufficiency of stable security.”

BEHIND THE SCENES

Dressage Hits the Silver Screen

W

hen the horses arrived in New York City for the 2015 Equus Film Festival, November 19-22, no discipline was left behind, and dressage and dressage-evocative footage took center stage in several of the 145-plus films, documentaries, and shorts screened at the vintage Village East Cinema. A sampling: Mozart: David Penitente (Bartabas) is an operatic, hour-long combination of music and classical dressage. This film won the EFF Equestrian Full Length Movie Video Winnie Award; watch it at youtube.com/ watch?v=6lYPrT0WiQA. A short video called Tribute (vimeo.com/67438595) opens with the narrator, international dressage competitor Catherine Haddad-Staller, noting: “Dressage is like sculpture in motion. It’s art that changes in shape— something that has a lot of harmony and balance to it when DRESSAGE WINNERS: Kayla “Hudi” it is done correctly.” She discusses Barteau, Lauren Stark, and Yvonne the relationship between Barteau accept the EFF Equestrian communication with the horse Fun Film Winnie Award for Dream and creativity, and emphasizes upon a Horse from presenter Christian the importance of discipline and Oliver of Edge Brewing (left) routine in helping to climb the levels. Dressage trainer/author Paul Belasik’s The Lost Quixotes: The Art of Collecting the Riding Horse, focuses on how to achieve collection. In the 48-minute film (available on Amazon), Belasik also talks about the history of dressage and the great masters through the ages. Michael Kurn Talks to Carl Hester, part of an FEI TV series, is an informative 10-minute interview with the British Olympian as he reviews his Grand Prix Special test at the 2015 European Championships (youtube.com/watch?v=pSvJdE-4U3w). The 25-minute An Affair of the Heart: The Relationship Between Horses and Their People focuses on the relationship between horses and humans, showing horses free and wild or under saddle. The winner of the EFF Equestrian Fun Film Winnie Award, Dream upon a Horse consists of three minutes of skits mixing dressage with reining and whimsy, such as when the trainer and horse are sitting down reading a book together. The well-known dressage trainer, competitor, and author Yvonne Barteau co-produced and co-edited An Affair of the Heart and Dream upon a Horse. —Diana De Rosa

ob title: Owner of SusanJStickle.com Photography with partner Jonna J. Koellhoffer, Bradenton, FL (dressagephotos.com) What I do: It starts, obviously, show day. You’re up early. You’re at the show way before the first ride. The rest of the work starts after the show, editing all the photos. Depending on the size of the show, it could be anywhere from 5,000 images to 50,000.

IN THE SCRUM: Among the photographers at major domestic and international dressage competitions, you’re likely to see Sue Stickle (at left, shooting at Dressage at Devon in Pennsylvania)

How I got started: We used to ride way back when and compete in dressage. I was always interested in photography, so we photographed each other’s rides. One thing led to another. I had a couple other people ask me if I’d take pictures. Our first show was 1993 in New Jersey, and we grew from there. In 2003, I started doing this full-time. After 9/11, we reassessed “what you want to do with your life.” I didn’t want an office job any more. Best thing about my job: At the show, shooting. We love seeing the little victories involved. Worst thing about my job: The weather. My horse: I sold my horse in 2004 because the business kinda took over everything. Tip: I study everything that I shoot, and I’m always trying to get better. —Katherine Walcott

Tour Guide FEI small-tour, medium-tour, U25 tour, and big-tour test combinations explained. Also: What’s the difference between the Intermediate A and B tests? By Lilo Fore

T

he Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) groups dressage tests into four combinations, or “tours,” of increasing difficulty: small, medium, Under 25, and big. With the increasing numbers of FEI tests, it can be confusing for competitors and show management to figure out which tests are used in, or combined, for which tours. In this article, I’ll sort them out for you.

Medium tour. These are tests of “advanced standard.” The object of these tests is to prepare the horse for the Grand Prix, which is a test of the “highest standard.” There is no freestyle in the medium tour. Permitted tests and combinations: Intermediate A Intermediate B Int. A + Int. B

SIZING IT UP: The FEI has developed four “tours” to help horses and riders progress successfully from Prix St. Georges to Grand Prix

Small tour. This classification refers to the Prix St. Georges test of “medium standard” and the Intermediate I tests of “advanced medium standard.” The permitted tests and test combinations are: Prix St. Georges PSG + Intermediate I PSG + I-I Freestyle PSG + I-I or I-I Freestyle PSG + I-I + I-I Freestyle I-I I-I + I-I Freestyle.

Int. A + Intermediate II Int. B + I-II Int. A + Int. B + I-II. Under 25. The U25 tour is for riders between the ages of 16 and 25. Permitted tests and combinations: Int. A + Grand Prix 16-25 Int. B + GP 16-25 Int. A + GP 16-25 + Grand Prix Freestyle Int. B + GP 16-25 + GP Freestyle I-II + GP 16-25 I-II + GP 16-25 + GP Freestyle

28 February 2016 • USDF CONNECTION

editorial@usdf.org

GP 16-25 + Grand Prix Freestyle. Big tour. This refers to tests of the “highest standard.” Permitted tests and combinations: I-II I-II + GP I-II + Grand Prix + GP Freestyle or Grand Prix Special GP + GP Special or GP Freestyle GP + GP Special GP + GP Freestyle GP + GP Special + GP Freestyle Nations Cup formula at a CDIO: GP + GP Special or GP Freestyle Championship formula at a CDIO or FEI championship: GP + GP Special + GP Freestyle.

Intermediate A and B Tests Explained Now we can discuss the reasoning behind the creation of the Intermediate A and B tests. The FEI and many dressage judges felt that there was too big of a jump from the small tour (PSG and I-I) to the big tour (I-II, GP, and GP Special). Intermediate II was not being used very much, as it was in many opinions not a very rider- or horse-friendly test. The I-II was changed and is now more rider-friendly and easier to judge. However, the revised I-II test did not solve the problem that there still was a big jump from the small tour of “medium and medium/advanced standard” to the big tour of the “highest standard.” The biggest challenges, of course, were the piaffe and passage tour and the one-tempi changes. The level of collection in the PSG and I-I horse is not as confirmed as that of the Grand Prix horse, which in many instances created problems for the green FEI horse not yet strong enough to carry itself in the required GP level of collection. The FEI and judges realized that young GP horses should not be asked to piaffe too much on the spot at first, or to perform the difficult piaffe-passage transitions that require the highest level of thoroughness, engagement, and collection. To encourage horses

the judge’s box


to maintain the desire to go forward in these movements, the FEI decided to create Intermediate-level tests that allow the horse to travel up to two meters in the piaffe. The A and B tests call for seven to 10 steps of piaffe, but when traveling forward two meters, the steps are really what we call “half-steps.” Although the horse is allowed to advance two meters in the piaffe, the tests do not require it to do so. If the rider is capable of showing a true piaffe of excellent quality performed more or less “on the spot,” we have to reward this with the maximum score. What riders do have to ensure is that the piaffe starts out of the walk, as stated in the test. In the Intermediate A and B tests, the transition to passage occurs out of a collected trot. In the A test, the passage is performed on a curved line to help the horse to stay supple and more controlled on the rider’s aids, and to keep the horse from pushing through the aids. In the B test, the passage occurs on a straight line and

through the corners of the short side. Passage therefore is slightly more difficult in the B test. In the Intermediate A and B tests, as in the Intermediate II test, the rider is given the opportunity to develop the passage between two letters instead of having to start at a specific marker, as in the Grand Prix. There is one controversy about the placement of the piaffe on the short side at C in the Intermediate A and B tests. Riders feel that horses become confused

having to walk into the piaffe at C, when in the big tour they must walk in collection through the short side and could potentially anticipate the piaffe at C. I understand the concern and admit that it could potentially become confusing to the horse, with anticipation disturbing the quality of the collected walk in the Grand Prix test. What is horse-friendly in the A and B tests, however, is the transition to extended walk coming from the collected trot, not the passage,

the judge’s box as in the big-tour tests. The A and B tests also offer a friendly introduction to the one- and two-tempi changes: seven two-tempis and seven onetempis—a lower number than that required in the big-tour tests. In the A test, canter pirouettes are placed on the short diagonal as in the I-I test: pirouette on the center line with a flying change. In the B test, the pirouettes are performed on the long diagonal MXK with a flying change at X between the pirouettes. This progression prepares the horse for the later required pirouettes with a flying change in between as required in the Grand Prix—of course more difficult in GP because they are ridden on the center line.

member of the ground jury at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, and she was president of the ground jury at the 2015 Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Final.

Building a Progression The Intermediate A and B are not easy tests, but they contain many wellthought-out exercises. Some horses and riders may find them easier than others, but the FEI and its judges were striving to give riders the opportunity to gradually introduce their horses to the big-tour tests and to let both become comfortable with the greater requirements as they prepare to step up to Grand Prix. All in all, I think it is a definite step in the right direction. ▲

A

fter a smashing debut in 2013 followed by explosive growth the next year, the US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan settled into a comfortable rhythm for its third annual edition, held November 5-8, 2015. The rolling green hills of the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington once again welcomed competitors from across the country for this unique national head-to-head championship competition for adult-amateur and open riders at all levels from Training to Grand Prix. Even the occasionally-temperamental November Kentucky weather seemed more comfortable this year, offering mostly cool, sunny weather. As the Finals have matured, they are proving to be what USDF leaders had hoped: not just another horse show, but a true destination event. “I have had the privilege of attending all three of our national finals competitions—the first and third years as a judge, and the second year coaching several students who qualified,” said FEI 4* judge Jayne Ayers, of Dousman, WI. “Each year has been an amazing experience. The Kentucky Horse Park has such a special atmosphere and so many amenities that make the event like none other.” “When I came to the Finals last year, I never thought I’d love the show as much as I did, but after I got home I immediately put in a time-off request at work for 2015 so that I could be sure to come back if I qualified,” said adult-amateur rider Amy Gimbel, of Oldwick, NJ. Gimbel did more than just qualify, riding her Dutch Warmblood mare, Eye Candy, to multiple titles at the 2015 Finals. Heather McCarthy, of Prairie Grove, IL, was another repeat Finals competitor, returning to the Bluegrass last year with several mounts of her own and with several clients and students, as well. “We look forward to coming to the Finals all year,” McCarthy said. “When we’re at Regionals [Great American/USDF Regional Championships], we all keep our fingers crossed, hoping we’re going to qualify because it’s such a fun show to come to.” Said USDF president George Williams: “The US Dressage Finals are fast becoming one of the most important dressage competitions on the American landscape, as well as proving to be an event that more and more competitors strive to be invited to. Each year we look for ways to build the competition and to continue to make it a positive and memorable experience for our competitors. We have new people coming to the Finals each year, but this time I especially noticed so many familiar faces. People are not just coming one time; they’re coming back year after year, which I believe is indicative of the Finals becoming a true destination event.” Participation in the 2015 Finals was strong, remaining nearly identical to the record-setting numbers of 2014. There

were 396 exhibitors in Finals and open Dressage in the Bluegrass classes (357 competitors in the Finals divisions), with 36 states and all nine USDF regions represented. Florida led the state count with 38 riders in the Finals, followed by Texas (31), Ohio (27), and New Jersey (21). Riders ranging from 12-yearold Sophia Holloway, of St. Simons Island, GA, to Olympic dressage team bronze medalist and Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame inductee Michael Poulin, of DeLeon Springs, FL, competed for national titles and more than $50,000 in prize money across 30 divisions. And once again, families, friends, and dressage enthusiasts who couldn’t attend in person could share in the experience thanks to live online streaming of select classes on the US Equestrian Federation’s USEF Network. Despite its size and scope, a trademark of the Finals has been a special atmosphere and excellent organization thanks to an all-star team of staff, officials, and volunteers. “Every year gets better from an organizational standpoint because we learn how to run the show more efficiently, which then of course benefits the competitors,” said show manager Janine Malone, of Zebulon, NC. “Key members of the management team have worked together at the Finals every year and know what is needed to get the job done, and we always make a point to review the feedback from competitors and other stakeholders to see how we can make things better. “For instance, one big change from previous years was the assignment of stalls in the [climate-controlled] Alltech barns,” Malone said. “We always have far more requests for stalls in these barns than we are able to accommodate, and many felt that exhibitors competing in the earlier reUSDF CONNECTION

A Special Dedication

T

he 2015 Finals were especially poignant, as the recent loss of three prominent figures in the US dressage community were remembered and honored during the event. The competition was officially dedicated to former USDF Region 4 director and internationally known competition manager Lloyd Landkamer, who lost his battle with cancer on September 25. Landkamer was a supporter and believer in the Finals from their inception, serving on the show’s organizing committee and managing the competition for the first two years. “Lloyd was determined to be at the US Dressage Finals again this year,” USDF president George Williams said during the emotional dedication ceremony. “Sadly, it was not meant to be, and we can only take some comfort in knowing he is here in spirit.” New perpetual trophies were presented in memory of two other dressage supporters who

left us in 2015. The Veronica Holt Perpetual Trophy for the Grand Prix Open champion, presented by USDF Region 5 and Friends, is named for the late FEI steward, USDF regional director, and longtime USDF and GMO volunteer who was the 2006 USDF Volunteer of the Year. Holt’s daughter Sally Hayes presented the inaugural trophy to Gwen Poulin, of DeLeon Springs, FL, who rode Belinda NairnWertman’s Dutch Warmblood gelding, William, to an emotional victory. USDF Region 4 honored the memory of another former regional director, Miki Christophersen, by creating a perpetual trophy to be presented to the Prix St. Georges Open champion. Christophersen, the 2011 USDF Volunteer of the Year, was a former Kansas City Dressage Society president and chair of the USDF Nominating Committee. The inaugural recipient was James Koford, of Raleigh, NC, who rode Maryanna Haymon’s Hanoverian stallion, Doctor Wendell MF, to the title.

gional championships had a big advantage getting stalls in the Alltech than those competing in the later regionals. For the first time this year, we allocated Alltech stalls based on the percentage of entries from each region. The competitors from each championship that requested Alltech stalls and completed their entries the earliest received their regions’ allotment of those stalls. Hopefully, the competitors felt that this system was more equitable to everyone.” Finals first-timer Elizabeth Landers, one of 19 West Coast competitors, hauled two horses almost 50 hours from Agoura Hills, CA, to compete at First and Third Levels. For her efforts, she took home a Third Level Open Freestyle reserve championship with her Hanoverian gelding, His Highness Crusador. “I’m still a little speechless. I’ve been in Europe and around the world, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a nicer place than this,” said Landers. “From the beautiful grounds to the outstanding organization it’s all been amazing, and the easy access to information is mind-boggling. To be able to sit here and follow live scores and go through my test with scores and comments all on my smartphone is almost unbelievable. The footing is the best I’ve ever seen—it’s consistent everywhere you go, from warm-up to show ring— and the [indoor] Alltech Arena is truly spectacular, a dream

to ride in. What’s especially interesting about the Alltech is that I have a horse who can be spooky, but he walked in and was immediately at ease; there’s just something about it. I could almost not go back home, it’s so beautiful here.” Officials and competitors alike agreed that the bar has been raised for horses and riders coming to the Finals. “I definitely think the competition has been tougher here this year, and it’s a great thing to see,” said Rachael Hicks. The adult amateur from Prospect, KY, found herself in the winner’s circle several times during the week, including to accept the Janine Westmoreland Malone Perpetual Trophy presented by USDF for winning the Prix St. Georges Adult Amateur Championship with her Westfalen gelding, Fabio Bellini. “There wasn’t a single time where you saw an exhibitor and wondered how they got there. The quality was very impressive.” “I judged the first competition in 2013, and I was thrilled to see that the quality of the horses and the riding was at a much higher standard this year,” said FEI 4* judge Janet Foy, of Colorado Springs, CO. “It was exciting to judge large classes with everyone scoring in the high 60-percent to lower 70-percent range, even with some mistakes. I did not see one rider that needed an improved seat! And I saw horses that are par with top-quality horses in Europe.” 

What actually makes “good” footing good? As horsemen, we love to talk about the footing. Good, bad, but never indifferent. Good footing can actually increase the longevity of a horse’s career. Bad footing can send you straight to the vet. Recently the FEI published a white paper discussing the science behind good footing. The same scientific approach that has been applied to Attwood’s premium blends for almost twenty years. From the hoof’s first impact to the rollover, there is a concussive element to all footing. Mostly, the horse’s soft tissue will absorb much of it, but good footing can minimize the effects. As the horse’s hoof impacts the surface, there is movement forward. Not enough grip and the horse will slip. Too much grip and the horse cannot move freely. It takes a master craftsman who understands the science and a horse’s biomechanics to make truly good footing. That’s why America’s leading riders choose Attwood.

An Unexpected Journey

F

or young dressage professional Christine Landry, of East Dennis, MA, competing at the US Dressage Finals wasn’t even a pipe dream. But when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity presents itself from the most unlikely of circumstances, as Landry put it, “You have to make it happen.” A lifelong dressage enthusiast, Landry, now 26, got her big break after graduating from high school, when she became a working student for “the Bills” William Warren and Bill McMullin. She worked at WarrenMcMullin Dressage in Stoughton, MA, for three years while earning a business degree from Framingham (MA) State University. Then another door opened: “I got a job working for Steffen and Shannon Peters in San Diego from 2011 to 2012,” Landry said. “It was incredible; the amount of knowledge I gained was amazing.” During her stint, Landry accompanied Lientje Schueler, then assistant trainer at Team Peters, on a trip to Germany. “While we were there I saw Santino, who was a three-year-old, and it was love at first sight,” Landry recalled. But even as she took the leap to purchase the young Hanoverian, more changes were in the air. “At the same time, I was invited to stay and train [in Germany]. So I went home for the summer, finished my job in San Diego, and went back to Germany, where I was reunited with Santino. I eventually brought him home the following year, and we started doing the Four-Year-Old classes. He was always super-talented.” But before long, the honeymoon was over. “When he turned five, everything changed. All of a sudden he became a real handful—just so unhappy and naughty to work with. No one could figure out what was happening or why, and it just went on and on with no answer in sight. It felt like a dead end, and I was devastated for both of us,” said Landry. “Finally, out of desperation, we did a nuclear scan, and everything lit up. The vet was like, ‘Huh, maybe we should have checked for Lyme disease earlier.’ But who would have thought it?” After a lengthy course of treatment, Santino slowly reverted to the horse Landry had fallen in love with. “It turned out that all the bad behavior was a result of the physical symptoms he was experiencing from Lyme, but we didn’t know it. All of a sudden, his great attitude was back. He seemed to say, ‘OK, I can do this,’ and he was my teammate again.” Having lost nearly a year, the young pair cautiously returned to showing in the spring of 2015. They started out at First Level and immediately qualified for the Great American/USDF Region 8 Championship. So

I DO, I DO! Even her upcoming nuptials couldn’t keep young dressage pro Christine Landry from making the trip to the Finals with her horse, Santino

“We went ahead and tried Second Level, and he just got better and better and suddenly we were qualified for that too,” said Landry. “We went to Regionals, and he won! The Finals weren’t ever on my radar because I was just so grateful to have my horse back. Then we received the Finals invitation, and I couldn’t believe it. It was surreal to even think that we could have made it after what we’d been through.” Although the invitation was tempting, Landry had concerns about attending the Finals. She was working full-time for Massachusetts-based Grand Prix-level rider and trainer Cindi Rose Wylie. Money was tight, and the prospect of making the thousand-mile trip to Kentucky was daunting. What’s more, Landry had her mind on something even more important: her upcoming wedding. As it has for several other Finals competitors, crowdfunding saved the day. Explained Landry: “I set up a GoFundMe account, and a lot of friends really helped out with donations. My fiancé, Chris, and I packed our truck and drove ourselves down, trying to make things as affordable as possible. The weekend before we left for the Finals was like a whirlwind with trying to get wedding stuff done, cake tastings and all that; thank goodness I have my mom to help me! To have all of this happen all at once is just crazy.” The craziness paid off. Landry and the horse she refused to give up on competed in both the First and Second Level divisions at the US Dressage Finals, placing fifth in the hard-fought First Level Open Championship. “If you want it badly enough, you have to make it happen one way or another,” Landry said. “You hope and you pray and you find the money. It’s an opportunity that can’t be passed up. Now I’ll go home and can’t wait to wear that wedding dress, but I sure hope to be back.”


Regions Cup Introduced at 2015 Finals

A

dding another element of competition and spurring on a bit of regional rivalry, the top-scoring riders in various divisions from each of the Great American/USDF Regional Championships competed on regional teams in the inaugural US Dressage Finals Regions Cup. Explained show manager Janine Malone: “A successful regional-championship program is the foundation of the US Dressage Finals, so from the beginning the organizing committee has considered ways to incorporate better recognition of the regions and of the competitors that qualified from each regional championship. We also wanted the Finals to include a lighthearted component that would add interest to the event. [USDF president] George Williams studied regional-championships results to determine how the teams could be as evenly matched as possible regardless of the number of competitors they had in attendance. At the same time, we wanted to ensure that adult amateurs would be represented and that the system would be reasonably uncomplicated and fair. Since this was the first year of the Regions Cup, I’m sure that plan will be tweaked going forward, but I hope we added another layer of interest to the event.”

The three-member Regions Cup teams comprised the highest-scoring eligible horse/rider combinations in the Training and First Level championship classes (open or adult amateur) as well as in the FEI-level championship classes (open or adult amateur) at each of the nine Great American/ USDF Regional Championships. The highest-scoring eligible adult-amateur horse/rider combination in the Second through Fourth Level Regional Championship classes was named as the third member of each regional team. Coming out on top after three days of championship competition was Region 3—which happened to send 84 competitors to the 2015 Finals, the most of the nine USDF regions. Team Region 3 (Kathryn Stoy/ Rapunzel of Hillock, First Level open; Camilla Van Liew/Dartesch, Third Level AA; and James Koford/ Doctor Wendell MF, Prix St. Georges open) earned a winning average score of 70.762 percent. Finishing in second was Team Region 8 (David Collins/Bojing, Jennifer Huber/Duchesse du Pre, and Heather Mason/ Romantico SF) with 70.039. Team Region 2 (Nicole Trapp/Paolucius, Rachael Hicks/Don Cartier, and Heather McCarthy/Saphira) placed third with 69.629.

“I have to admit that I was very skeptical about the idea of the Finals,” said FEI 4* judge Natalie Lamping, of Ocala, FL. “But I judged last year and was honored to be asked to return, and once again the organizers did an amazing job. I agree that the quality has improved; but more importantly, the riders are simply so excited to be there, even the ones that had bad luck with their rides. I also see how this event is so important to so many adult-amateur riders that they are willing to make sacrifices to be part of it, and it’s these people who support and pay for our sport. I am now a believer.” ▲ Jennifer M. Keeler, of Lexington, KY, is a freelance writer and marketer who served as the press officer for the 2015 US Dressage Finals.

Convention 2015:

Not a Gamble Meetings, cheers, and a few tears in Las Vegas BY JENNIFER O. BRYANT

58 February 2016 â&#x20AC;¢ USDF CONNECTION


E

volving from its origins as an adult playground, Sin City has remade itself into a major business-meeting destination—with shows, gambling, and dining to fill attendees’ free time, of course. Las Vegas hosts numerous conventions on any given day, and in December the USDF took full advantage of the fact that the American Association of Equine Practitioners would be in town at the same time as the 2015 Adequan/USDF Annual Convention. An impressive lineup of top veterinarians provided much of the educational content at the USDF convention, held December 2-5 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino. They lectured on topics ranging from equine back lameness to sport-horse maintenance, and in future issues we’ll be bringing you reports on the horse-health sessions. In this article we’ll focus on the main convention happenings: honors, awards, and important business decisions.

An Emotional Awards Banquet The bestowing of USDF’s top honors—the Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the Roemer Foundation/ USDF Hall of Fame—is always an emotional affair. But in Las Vegas the ceremony was more poignant than usual because the honoree had passed away just a few short months earlier. Former USDF Region 4 director and internationally acclaimed dressage-show manager Lloyd Landkamer, who died of cancer in September, was the 2015 USDF Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. (Read his obituary in the November 2015 issue of USDF Connection.) USDF president George Williams and USDF vice president Lisa Gorretta presented a moving tribute that included photos and the showing of videotaped remarks by longtime dressage young-rider supporter and US Equestrian Federation director Howard Simpson. The Lifetime Achievement Award honors USDF members who have made extraordinary volunteer contributions to the organization on a national level. “He brought his indefatigable spirit, passion, and willingness to do whatever was to be done,” Simpson said of Landkamer in the video. Presenters and audience members alike were visibly emotional during the ceremony. 

Back-to-Back Business Meetings If there was a common complaint about the Las Vegas convention, it was that meetings were so tightly scheduled that, for some, sleep started to seem optional. Concurrent with the usual roster of USDF committee meetings, Executive Board meetings, and the Board of Governors (BOG) assembly are meetings and open forums with the USEF Dressage Committee. Some overscheduled volunteers doubtless wished they had a Harry Potter time-turner device so they could be in two places at once.

As USDF president George Williams explains in his “Inside USDF” column on page 4, after much debate, the BOG voted to leave the Finals at the Kentucky Horse Park for the time being. Not convinced that the proposed western location of Thermal, CA, is the right answer, the BOG left the door open for USDF’s western regions to DOUBLE HOY WINNER: Owner/rider Alyssa Pitts (WA) (third from left) earned Horse of the Year honors at First Level for Selestial R and at Third Level for Quintessential Hit

Mother, Daughter Earn USDF Gold Medals

t’s not uncommon for a parent and child to share a love of horses and dressage. But a mother and daughter earning their USDF gold medals in the same year—that’s a much rarer feat. That’s exactly what happened to Leigh KentScherzer and Mallory Kent, of Vincent, AL, who took the stage together at the 2015 Adequan/USDF Annual Convention in Las Vegas to receive their USDF gold medals. Not only did the pair earn gold medals in the same year; they also earned them at the same show, on the same day! Kent-Scherzer and Kent each needed one more score for the gold medal when they entered the Dressage at Greystone show in Tennessee on November 8, 2014. “As we were walking up to the score board together, I suddenly got excited and nervous at the same time,” Kent-Scherzer recalls. “We both got a 66 percent and the final score we needed for the gold medal.” “It really was coincidental that we were both ready for the Grand Prix test at the same time,” KentScherzer says. Her own mount, the Danish Warmblood Sir Luckas, was at Fourth Level when she bought him; Kent’s horse, the Dutch Warmblood Okidokie, had competed through Intermediate I. “Ultimately, the question was whether Oki could do the piaffe and whether Luckas could do the onetempis,” says Kent-Scherzer, who calls the experience “all in the family. My husband, Wolfgang Scherzer, is a German Bereiter and our trainer. We credit him for this gift.” “Mallory and I began showing in the summer of 2008, and showing together is all we know,” says KentScherzer, an adult amateur who works full-time as a

periodontist. “There have been a lot of opportunities to teach life lessons along the way, such as learning from failure and being an encouragement for others who are also on the journey.” Mother and daughter have enjoyed many successes on the road to their gold medals. In 2013, Kent-Scherzer and Kent won the Great American/ USDF Region 1 Intermediate I adult amateur and junior championship titles, respectively. That same year, Kent, now 18, won Junior Team bronze with Region 3 at the NAJYRC. Kent and Okidokie also competed in the Junior division at the 2011, 2012, and 2014 NAJYRC. The pair graduated to the Young Rider ranks in 2015, winning NAJYRC team silver for Region 3. “I loved being able to cheer her on and wipe off her boots before each ride just as much as I’ve loved showing myself,” Kent says of her mother. “While it’s easy to think that getting my gold is what I treasure the most, it is actually the journey that will always stick with me. For me, the gold medal holds many laughs and tears and many memories with my mom. I am so thankful for such an amazing horse, trainer, and parents, especially my mom, who have given me so much and so many amazing opportunities.”

identify a suitable alternative and to present their findings to the Executive Board for future consideration. Executive Board elections. The positions of USDF president, treasurer, and directors of the even-numbered regions (2, 4, 6, and 8) were up for reelection. The incumbent president, George Williams; treasurer, Steven Schubert; and Region 8 director, Debra Reinhardt, ran unopposed and were reelected by acclamation. With Region 4 director Lloyd Landkamer’s untimely death in September, there was no candidate on the ballot for that position prior to the convention. Nominations were accepted from the floor of the BOG assembly; the sole nominee, former GMO Committee chair Anne Sushko (IA), won by acclamation. She takes over from interim Region 4 director Linda Landers. There were contests for the Regions 2 and 6 directors’ positions. In Region 2, incumbent Ken Levy won over challenger Sheila Woerth. In Region 6, challenger Carolynn Bunch defeated longtime director Donna Longacre. Executive director’s report. According to Stephan Hienzsch, an “ongoing theme” he hears is: “‘What’s USDF done for our GMO lately?’” He answered: “One of the best things we can do in the national office is create things that GMOs can use to promote themselves.” In January, USDF was scheduled to roll out downloadable PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and other educational materials, all available via the GMO Guide page on the USDF website, Hienzsch said. Other resources include GMO-specific ads for use in GMOs’ marketing efforts and a redesigned GMO e-newsletter containing tabs that link to regional websites. “November fourth was the one-hundredth USDF podcast,” Hienzsch said. To date there have been more than 68,000 individual listens, and USDF membership is not required to access the podcasts, he said. “GMOs can list these as a member benefit.” “The most exciting new thing,” Hienzsch said, “is the new USDF mobile app,” which will debut in 2016. Currently titled Your USDF Dressage Connection, the app will be a mobile source for the magazine you’re reading as well as for USDF’s stallion guide, streaming content, social-media channels, and video links, he said, adding that “there will be regularly updated content beyond the magazine content.” Nonmembers will have limited-time access to sample content, after which time they will be prompted to purchase access (or join USDF). Other “under the hood” improvements coming in 2016: updates to the USDF online store and a redesign of the usdf. org website, Hienzsch said.

Treasurer’s report. At his sixth USDF convention in this position, Steve Schubert reported that the 2015 US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan turned a small profit of approximately $7,000. “We continue to be in a very strong position,” said Schubert, who noted that the organization is exceeding its benchmark of maintaining a six-month cash reserve. Financial data and budgets are available on the USDF website under About / Governance / Financials. Committee and regional meetings. Whatever your particular dressage interest, there’s a USDF committee focused on that subject. Any convention-goer may attend the open committee meetings, learn about the issues, and voice opinions. Same for the USDF regional meetings, each led by that region’s director. The US Dressage Finals location issue dominated many regional meetings. GMO-related issues came to the forefront at various committee meetings, speaking to the USDF’s unique “umbrella” membership and governance structure, and the give-and-take for resources and members between the parent organization and its approximately 130 affiliated local and regional dressage clubs. 

Reports and Rule-Change Forums The USDF is the official affiliated dressage organization of the United States Equestrian Federation. As such, it’s entitled to “state of the union” reports from USEF representatives. USEF CEO Chris Welton and USEF dressage chef d’équipe and technical advisor Robert Dover traveled to Las Vegas to address the USDF Board of Governors. Welton, a lawyer who brought experience in sport management and marketing to the USEF, said that his first priority was “to get the financial ship right.” When he was hired in 2014, he said, the USEF was $1.7 million in the red; by the end of 2015, “it looks like we are going to break even this year, maybe have a slight surplus.” Welton slashed costs, including the equine-liability insurance that once was included with membership (it’s still available but for a nominal fee). He wants to revamp the USEF’s fee structure, which he says “hasn’t changed significantly since the start of the organization. The groups that use the most federation resources should pay more than those that don’t use as many resources.” To help revive stagnant results in the high-performance disciplines, “The first thing I did was hire [former British Equestrian Federation performance director] Will Connell [as USEF director of sport programs] to fix the sport side of things.” Connell, who is credited with helping Great Britain dominate the equestrian competition at the 2012 Olympic Games, was hired in 2014, and his first major US test will be at this year’s Rio Olympics and Paralympics.

From the organizations’ standpoint, ideally, every US dressage enthusiast would belong both to a GMO and to USDF directly. But in reality, many people choose one or the other—and although participating membership (direct USDF membership) was up by 4.1 percent in 2015, according to Membership Committee chair Anneliese VogtHarber, the percentage of participating members who are also group members decreased by 2.3 percent. Total USDF membership was essentially flat, with a 0.3 percent decline, she said. While some GMOs indicate that they are struggling to attract and retain members, others report steady gains. According to Membership Committee member and USDF Region 2 director Ken Levy, “Our GMO is growing because we changed our focus to offer things people wanted.” In addition to taking advantage of the GMO-available USDF educational resources, GMOs can offer the kinds of locally or regionally focused educational or competition opportunities that the national organization can’t, Levy said. Finances are a common chicken-and-egg issue for GMOs: Without programs, it’s harder to attract members; but without members, there may not be enough money to host programs. One possible solution was presented by Jenny Johnson, executive director of the philanthropic organization The Dressage Foundation, who dropped by several meetings to remind USDF members that TDF (dressagefoundation.org) offers a variety of dressage-education-focused grants. One, the Violet M. Hopkins Fund, is earmarked to aid USDF GMOs in producing educational programs.

USEF REPORT: USEF CEO Chris Welton addresses the BOG

Welton is a horseman, but much of his previous professional marketing experience was in football, not equestrian sports. As such, “I was a little naïve in terms of how we should market equestrian sports,” he told the BOG. “I assumed because of the [participant] demographics that it would be extremely attractive to sponsors. [I learned that] we’ve got to increase the numbers of people watching the sport. That’s where the money is.” At the same time, the sport itself must remain robust. “We have to bring more young people to the sport, and support the people in the sport,” Welton said. In the world of high-performance dressage, everything’s coming up roses, according to Robert Dover, who’s been following his “road map to the podiums” since the USEF hired him in 2013. The six-time Olympian has made no secret of the fact that it takes money to win medals, and in 2015 his fund-raising efforts produced more than $870,000, Dover said, with eleven more fund-raising events planned prior to the Rio Games. Many USEF dressage personnel changes took place in 2015 or are soon to occur, said Dover: USEF managing director of dressage Jenny van Wieren-Page resigned her position, and former USEF director of dressage national programs Hallye Griffin moved up in what Dover called a “seamless” transition. Taking over USEF dressage nationalcoach “pipeline” positions were USDF president George Williams as the new youth coach and Olympian Christine Traurig as the new young-horse coach, with Olympian Charlotte Bredahl-Baker filling the newly created position of assistant youth coach. Next up for Dover will be to find a new developing coach after the woman he called his “right hand,” Olympian Debbie McDonald, steps down this spring.

To hear Dover tell it, the USEF is indeed following his road map and has a solid chance of ascending the dressage medal podium in Rio. With gold medals at the 2015 Pan Am Games and other top finishes, “We have proved again and again that we are one of the top countries in the world,” Dover said. “Our goal for 2016 is six combinations that can score in the upper seventies, with two capable of going over 80 percent. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the formula for a medal.” USEF proposed rule changes. By the time you read this, the USEF will have voted on all the proposed rule changes at its convention in January. Here’s the quick back story on the input the USEF Dressage Committee received from USDF members at the USEF rule-change open forum on proposed changes affecting dressage. One general rule (GR) proposal was to require all participants in USEF-licensed competition to be USEF members—no payment of a nonmember fee allowed. A straw poll showed little support for this proposal. Likewise, the proposed banning of the double bridle in Third Level tests received practically no support. The existing rule allows either the snaffle or the double bridle at Third Level. A proposed rule change would clarify the three-second halt rule by stating that the halt must be held for three seconds when it is performed with a salute to the judge. To align with Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) rules, a dressage rule change would require that horses competing at Grand Prix must be at least eight years of age (instead of the current seven). Fourth Level horses would have to be at least seven years old. The USEF rule regarding logos on dressage saddle pads has confused many competitors. The USEF was to consider two related rule change-proposals at its 2016 convention. One would essentially permit amateurs to compete in pads with logos; the other, put forth by the USEF Dressage Committee, would keep the rule but with simplifications and clarifications. “The purpose of the logo rule,” explained USEF DC member and USDF vice president Lisa Gorretta, “was to enforce the [USEF] amateur rule,” which prohibits amateurs from accepting remuneration or sponsorship for riding or training. The rule came about because an amateur rider accepted a sponsorship from a saddlery company and rode in a pad bearing the company’s logo, she said. The forum attendees did not favor the DC’s proposal and instead supported the proposed rule change permitting, with size restrictions, logos on the saddle pads of all competitors.  USDF CONNECTION

Convention-goers enjoy plenty of extracurricular activities. In Las Vegas, early risers worked up a sweat with equestrian-fitness pro Jennifer Kotylo, who followed her introductory lecture, “Improve Your Riding Through Movement,” with sessions focusing on Pilates, Balimo work, and a grab bag of exercises. The spine and the core are key not only to good riding, but also to overall health and mobility, Kotylo said. Top human athletes have a relatively flat-backed posture, which she said transfers energy more efficiently than a back with a pronounced lumbar curve. She quoted Pilates method founder Joseph Pilates: “A man is as young as his spinal column.” “The energy of the horse pushes the rider’s pelvis forward and back,” Kotylo explained. “A slight posterior tilt is not so bad, but an anterior tilt—an arched back—causes the energy to push you forward and up and out of the saddle. It crunches your back with every step and is bad for your horse’s back, as well.” Kotylo’s fitness sessions focused on the development of hip and spinal mobility, core strength, and relaxation to promote proper posture in and out of the saddle, to ease pain, and to help the rider move effectively with the horse. During meeting breaks, convention attendees enjoyed browsing booths set up by sponsors Adequan (Luitpold Animal Health), Standlee Hay Company, Clinic in the Cloud, Dressage Extensions, DressageClinic.com, Schleese, and the California Dressage Society (CDS was the sponsor of the welcome reception). The annual silent auction, which benefits USDF youth programs, is always a popular draw,

o Dreamcatcher Meadows Ventures founder Jill Giese, “the coolest part of the story” of Leopold DMV’s award is that he and half-siblings Ballerina DMV (who won this same award in 2012 and 2013), D-Trix DMV, Lordsley DMV, and Believe DMV “are all from our barn’s late, beloved mare Dreaming DM: one of the embryo-transfer triplets”—by Dimaggio from DMV matriarch and namesake Dreamcatcher—“that I brought to Canada as rising two-year-olds in 2004, when I moved back after twelve years in England.” Giese’s first impression of “Leo” was of “legs, legs, and legs” (much like his 18.1-hand dam’s), along with “amazing gymnastic ability and a playful character. In his turnout paddock, he maneuvers into complicated yoga positions we’ve never before seen a horse achieve, bending under fence rails to reach no-greener grass on the other side.” Leo’s barn nickname, Giese says, is “Fire Truck,” a nod to his large size and huge movement. “We joke that John [DMV top rider and head trainer John Dingle] could use a clone to ride Leo: John One steering the front end and John Two guiding the back. Standing next to Leo you can feel dwarfed—but then you may find our gentle giant wrapping you in one of his ‘neck hugs.’” Leo has a strong work ethic and “clearly likes being a people-pleaser,” Giese says. “We capitalize on this by using plenty of voice aids in his schooling.” When told he’s a good boy, he “consistently responds with even more effort.” So, she says, “the hardest challenge is to resist pushing him at this young age. He has the necessary gifts to do high-level work; his balance, rhythm, ability, and physical scope are far beyond those of any horse his age, or most others’ ages. Still, it’s obvious to us that he needs to ‘grow into himself,’ mentally and physically. And we know that patience now will reap rewards later, increasing the odds he’ll remain sound in body and mind.” Making his showing début in Region 6 at age three, Leo won his in-hand class, Giese says. He won his Materiale division and was ultimately named show grand cham-

pion. Qualifying for the Adequan/USDF Materiale division championship required a minimum of three winning scores at three shows. “Leo cleared this hurdle by winning with 80plus scores at his next two shows.” Giese says Leo “is as relaxed at shows as at home—but he knows when he’s ‘on show’ and becomes more dynamic.” Dingle, who’s describes riding Ballerina as “like a surfer’s once-in-a-lifetime wave: euphoric, almost surreal,” says that “riding Leo is like riding a controlled tsunami!” Giese’s most cherished moment of the 2015 competition season came from “a judge’s comment at the end of one particularly exuberant performance: ‘When that horse moves, the angels sing.’ For us, and for everyone on the team who make our competing possible, including staff and owner sponsors, that was particularly moving.” This year, according to Giese, she and Dingle “will continue Leo’s classical training, He needs time to grow into himself and his huge movement, and we want to keep his work fun for him.” But because “getting to even our closest USDF qualifying venue requires a border crossing and an eleven-hour journey, we try to keep our horses positive in mind and body, and minimize training interruption, by competing sparingly and strategically.” Still, both Giese and Dingle hope that their horses’ successes—along with a third consecutive Adequan/USDF DSHB Breeder of the Year award, and a certificate of achievement from the president of the Hannover Verband—will increase awareness that “meticulously trained young Hanoverians, carrying the same genetic gifts as European champions, are available just two hours north of Vancouver,” says Giese. “And in a perfect world we’d also hope to find individual or corporate sponsorship enabling John to compete Leo at the highest level possible. Ultimately, we aspire to see a North American rider partnering one of our homebred Hanoverians to the awards podium at a top international competition.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

ith parents involved in horse racing, Lesley Pollington “was around horses from the time I was about four. But it wasn’t until I moved from the States to Toronto in 2002 that I had any exposure to dressage.” She soon switched her riding focus to the new discipline, “and was training at a barn just north of the city when I found and fell in love with ‘Darcy.’ Then my husband, Stewart Kirby, surprised me by buying her for me.” But with frequent overseas business trips, Pollington couldn’t find adequate time to ride—“and horses can’t sit around doing nothing. They’ve got to have a job.” So she decided that D’Amore would become a broodmare. For advice on the breeding business as well as information on sires, Pollington turned to the GOV (Oldenburg) registry. “I didn’t know a lot about things like genotypes, but I did know I wanted a sire based in North America.” She studied the GOV stallion book, “and when I saw Diamond Stud, I just got a feeling that he was the one: that he’d balance Darcy out nicely.” Pollington moved Darcy south to Florida for breeding and foaling. Daphne arrived “on April Fool’s Day” and—birth date notwithstanding—quickly showed promise in terms of conformation and temperament. In 2013, Pollington placed Darcy and now two-year-old Daphne with Florida trainer Sharon Jerdeman. At two, Daphne initially struck Jerdeman as “very leggy, a little bit gawky, but a very nice mover, and so brave and sensible that I was excited at the prospect of seeing how she’d mature.” Since then, the trainer’s been “very pleased with how she’s developed. It’s so rewarding to just make a suggestion—‘Why don’t we try a little counter-canter?’—and have her figure it out almost on her own. She has a good canter and a very comfortable sitting trot. She likes to take little walks around and investigate things; she’s

pretty brave. She’s offered a cool flying change. Those things don’t seem difficult; I think she enjoys them. She has good balance and a good brain.” Pollington says Jerdeman “has a special way with young horses in particular, and we’re on the same page about giving them time to develop their characters, minds, and bodies. She can take a horse all the way up the levels, but she’s also sympathetic about the choices owners may need to make. And she’s been very supportive of my efforts to define and balance my long- and short-term goals for Daphne—and for future youngsters.” Deciding to make 2015 “a year of evaluation,” Pollington entered Daphne in both in-hand and Materiale classes—and the young mare wound up becoming the highest-scoring dressage sport-horse breeding champion. Pollington says Daphne’s success has given her “the confidence to continue with breeding.” For 2016, Darcy will again be a broodmare, paired with a North America-based sire from the GOV stallion book. But Daphne—for now, at least—will continue her training with Jerdeman, who thinks the young mare has “the stamina and the energy to go up the FEI levels,” if that’s the direction her owner chooses. Eventually, Pollington says, she’d like to return to the US and be more involved in USDF programs. But for now, she and her husband have overseas commitments—for example, “remodeling an old house in Yorkshire into a bed-and-breakfast”—that come first. Still, she’s delighted with the recognition her initial foray into breeding has brought. “This is the first year I’ve been with the USDF,” she says, “so this Traveling Trot award has been more than I ever expected. In terms of encouragement, what more could I want?” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Django


T

rainer Hokan Thorn already had another young horse he was moving up through the levels when he saw a video clip of Django. “It was a very short clip, but I saw the quality in him. He was a very pretty horse; he had the looks and the size, and a super hind leg, and a very good shoulder: the things you look for in a good dressage horse.” In addition, “he was bred so well; most of the Jazz horses I’ve ridden have had great potential for piaffe and passage. “So I drove up” from North Carolina to Kansas “and tried him. He was very unproven, and I only rode him for about ten minutes, but right away I felt the potential in him. So— this was around the end of December 2014, and he was six, going on seven—we worked out a deal and I bought him.” Because Django was so unproven, Thorn decided to “spend the first six months putting a foundation on him. So from January to June, I really didn’t do anything more than train him in the basics—having them in place is one thing that I’m really picky about as a trainer—and put some muscle on him.” Django also benefited from Thorn’s firm belief in the importance of “hacking my horses out and having each one spend about a half a day turned out in the pasture to ‘be a horse.’ No matter the level, they are not hothouse flowers.” After Django finished his basic training, Thorn “decided to give him some showing experience. At the show grounds, he started out a little bit fresh; but all the Jazz horses are typically that way, and he settled in very well.”

Better yet, Thorn discovered, Django is “the kind of young horse that ‘grows’ in front of you when he goes in the ring. It’s good to have a youngster who does that: who’s even more expressive in the show ring than in the warm-up.” Thorn showed Django four times at Training Level in 2015, “just to give him showing experience, and he had scores in the mid-80s from some very good judges. Up to now, I’ve been taking my time with him; now he’s ready to move on, And he has the talent I knew he would have, so I really see him as a horse for myself—one I will take my time developing. “From age four to age six, it’s most important that the horse learns to come through from behind when moving forward. If I challenge Django to move out, he really likes to move big. If I put him in a big trot, he stays in a big trot, and I can do anything I want with him; I think he really likes to show off in that way. I think he has qualities that will let him perform at the FEI levels very well. “Not every horse needs to go through every step” up those levels, Thorn says. “I want to keep the work interesting. In many cases I get a horse going at First Level, then leave him home until he’s strong enough to move up to Fourth Level. I’m definitely going to start Django in Fourth Level: He has the strength, and he has the changes; he’s starting pirouette work. He’s going to let me bring out everything in him. He’s a very cool horse!” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Selestial R


S

elestial R had been under saddle just a few months when Alyssa Pitts saw her at Red Wagon Farm in Mount Vernon, WA, in March 2014. “I was there to look at her brother,” Pitts recalls. “But when she put her head over the fence, I liked her look so much that I tried her, too.” The young mare “had really nice power in her gaits” and “a very nice feel about her personality.” Pitts bought her—and then “saved up and bought her brother later. “Although ‘Seleste’ had been started before I got her,” says Pitts (who usually starts her youngsters herself ), “she seemed very young and green under saddle, possibly lacking a little confidence.” Like many youngsters, she was also very “downhill,” though her breeding suggested to Pitts that her front and hind ends would even up as she matured. “Seleste didn’t want to fight me, but she did have a little fear.” So Pitts focused on building the young mare’s trust through positive experiences in unfamiliar situations: “taking her out on trail rides; getting her exposed to horse shows and other new places. She’s very athletic and talented; dressage comes pretty easily to her. Building her confidence has been the bigger effort,” but it’s paid off. When, a few months after starting to work with the mare, Pitts became pregnant with her second child, she felt confident that Seleste was “kind enough and good enough” to continue riding her until the last few weeks before the baby came. Although Seleste was “still a baby herself” in terms of showing, Pitts “showed her a little at Training Level, and she always had a good try in her”—good enough to end up second alternate for the 2014 Markel/USEF Four-Year-Old Young Horse Championships. In May 2015, “things really got started” in Seleste’s career when Pitts rode her in a clinic with British dressage superstar Charlotte Dujardin. That session led to what Pitts

hopes will be a long-term association; she has since hosted a Dujardin clinic in Snohomish and ridden in a Dujardin public clinic in Oregon. Pitts also became “the first rider for Piaffe, a company started by Charlotte’s manager.” Working with the Olympic gold medalist has “helped us to some pretty good scores,” Pitts says. Seleste “won every First Level class we entered. In general,” she adds, “the higher-ranking the judge, the better our scores have been. Our highest this year, an 83.676 percent, was from an FEI five-star judge.” Seleste showed a little at Second Level in 2015 as well, and Pitts thinks she’s ready to start at Third Level this year. “She has a phenomenal trot: When you ask her to open up at the trot, she loves to do it. And it’s gorgeous. She also has a phenomenal ability to collect and push from behind. She’s very comfortable, a real tryer, and a pleasure to come out and ride every day.” Pitts says Seleste is “physically a slow-growing horse; I liken her to a gawky teenager:” But “she is looking more mature now, and in a year she’ll look even more like an adult horse.” Meanwhile, “her talent and her work ethic” help to overcome any awkwardness. Pitts says: “My end goal for my horses is that they become CDI Grand Prix competitors. I would love to take them all to the Finals, or to the Markel/USEF Young Horse Championships, but I’m not independently wealthy, and all the national championships are two thousand miles away. I have to think long and hard about subjecting a horse to that kind of travel. I keep waiting for the Young Horse finals to rotate locations instead of always being in the same place. Meanwhile, I’ll continue to show Seleste in our region, try to get her in front of the best judges I can, and keep my longrange focus on getting her to Grand Prix.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Rosalut NHF


T

rainer and former British dressage judge Nikki TaylorSmith was in the market for a young horse to bring along. On the Internet, she came across “an Oldenburg that had been judged a Foal of Distinction—not a term we use in the UK” at a recent keuring. Research revealed that the designation was “a higher ranking than Premium; very few foals a year get it. I thought, ‘If a German judge gave this foal that award, he must be really good!’ Then I saw a video of him at the keuring with his mother; his movement was amazing. “So I called the breeder and said, ‘I don’t suppose that foal you’ve got is still for sale’—but he was! So I bought him—literally—over the phone.” Taylor-Smith planned to bring the youngster, Rosalut NHF (for his breeder’s North Hill Farm), to her own Texas barn in December, as soon as he was weaned. But North Hill, near Albany, NY, “got snowed in big-time. I couldn’t drive my trailer there until January. So he was about seven months old when he finally arrived.” Taylor-Smith “did all the ground work on him: broke him in, lunged him, and so forth. But as soon as I sat on him in the big arena and felt his trot, I knew what I had. I thought, ‘I’m not going to do him justice.’ But my daughter, Carly, is an amazing rider—so when he was three and a half, I sent him to her.” Now working out of a Malibu barn, Carly Taylor-Smith had apprenticed for a year with a trainer in the UK, then spent four years as rider and head trainer for US Olympian Jan Ebeling before going out on her own. She says her first ride on Rosalut told her “he was very well balanced for his age and had three good gaits and a super, super temperament. So we knew he was good, but we didn’t know how good he was going to be.” According to Carly, “He picks things up incredibly fast, so teaching him basics is very easy. You ask him once or twice,

and in a day or two he’s got it. And he’s very brave: At a show or at home, he doesn’t flinch, he doesn’t really look at anything. He just focuses on me. We sort of complement each other: I give him confidence, and he gives me confidence. I make things very black-and-white for him so he really knows right from wrong. And I think making it that simple for him is a big part of why he’s come along the way he has.” The pair’s first major milestone was the USEF Four-YearOld test. “I knew that my horse was ready and that he could do that test; it was pretty easy at home,” says Carly. “So we just tried it and got some good results, and at each show it got a little bit better.” They qualified for—and won—the 2014 Markel/USEF Four-Year-Old title. In 2015, they returned to Lamplight in Illinois, this time claiming the Markel/USEF Five-Year-Old championship. Now, says Carly, Rosalut is “ready for [FEI] Six-Year-Old work. There’s nothing in the Six-Year-Old test that he can’t do; we’re working on the changes, and in a couple of months the timing should be solid. And the more he goes to shows, the more easily I can ride him there the same way I ride him at home. I try to help him understand that even if it’s a different place, it’s the same old arena. I’m confident, and that helps him be confident. It’s just another day.” Carly hopes to qualify Rosalut for this year’s World Breeding Championship for Young Dressage Horses, scheduled for the Netherlands in late July. “That will be a little more pressure for me because the standard is so high. I don’t know how it will go, but we’ll try.” Besides, “he’s always been a cocky horse, full of himself, since my mum had him as a yearling. He knows he’s good. So now there’s nothing that really challenges him; he’s ‘been there, done that, no big deal.’” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Quintessential Hit


T

he renowned Oldenburg stallion Quaterback was an up-and-coming three-year-old, says Alyssa Pitts, when “this video of him went viral. He was such a phenomenal young horse!” Pitts forwarded the video to her breeder friend Sherry Smith—“who watched it and said, ‘Omigosh, I want to breed to this horse!’” Smith bred her Sandro Hit daughter Stellar Hit to Quaterback, and Quintessential Hit was the result. When Smith presented the dam and foal at an Oldenburg inspection, officials named Stellar Hit a Mare of Distinction and Quintessential Hit a Premium Foal and Foal of Distinction. Pitts “felt drawn to ‘Quin’ from the first second I saw him.” She planned to buy him as a foal from Smith, who’d agreed to give her first right of purchase, but complications arose and the sale didn’t happen. So “Quin was still unstarted at the end of his three-year-old year, and at that point I was able to buy him from Sherry.” But by then, Pitts’s first child was on the way. “So to get Quin started, I sent him to cutting-horse trainer Randy Leighton, a terrific horseman who’s been one of the biggest influences on my life and my riding.” After her son’s arrival, Pitts brought the now four-year-old Quin home and continued his training, but she didn’t start competing him until his five-year-old year. In spring and early summer of 2014, Pitts showed Quin a few times in the Pacific Northwest area. That August, “I took him to Dressage at Lamplight [in Illinois] for the [Markel/ USEF] Young Horse Five-Year-Old Championship. He placed fifth in the preliminary test and eighth in the final.” In 2015, Pitts moved Quin up to Third Level, where “all but one of his scores were in the seventies, and most were in the upper seventies.”

Pitts describes Quin’s temperament as “one of the best out there. He’s intelligent, has a great work ethic, and you couldn’t find a nicer horse to work with. You teach him something, he learns it, and he’s got it. Part of what makes him so special is that he’s got all the athletic ability in the world and the mind to go with it. The other part is that he’s eager to try everything. And he’s that rare horse that has no weaknesses: Nothing is hard for him. His three gaits never score less than an 8. His trot is out of this world; he’s been getting a lot of 10s in it. He’s incredibly powerful, incredibly supple, and has so much push. The canter is huge, has a huge volume; he’s clearly pushing strongly from behind. And his extended trots and extended canters get huge scores.” The one thing Pitts is careful about is that “Quin can be just a little too ‘electric’ in showing: He can feel everything so strongly that he gives me a little too much.” So she tries to make sure he’s getting enough showing experience and exposure “that his electricity doesn’t work against him.” In 2016, Pitts plans to “get Quin into the ring in Prix St. Georges, maybe do some Developing Prix St. Georges with him.” Pitts says she’s had “some pretty amazing offers” for Quin, “but I’m not ready to part with him just yet.” She adds, “Whatever happens, I believe he’s one of the finest horses— and maybe the finest horse—that I’ll ever get to ride. So I have this incredible responsibility to do right by him: to find a way—even if it takes the last cent I have—to get him to the right competitions and the right venues,” with the goal of “making him the best Grand Prix horse possible. “I’m trying to choose our path forward wisely—to do what’s best for Quin. And I have nobody to answer to but him.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Quincy


Q

uincy’s story begins at the 2004 Verden Elite Winter Auction in Germany. There a California emergencyroom physician, Jennifer Mason, joined with her dressage instructor and friend, Kathleen Raine, to buy an impressive mare named Brentina. The next year, Raine began competing the mare (now called Breanna to avoid confusion with Peggy and Parry Thomas’s storied Brentina). In 2007, Breanna’s co-owners agreed that Mason would arrange a breeding by embryo transfer, “and that,” she says, “is how I got Quincy. For me, breeding is a hobby, and I’m an amateur. But I love Breanna, and I love trying to pick a stallion I think will complement her.” Eleven months later, Quincy arrived—and, Mason says, “He’s had the same personality since he was born: He’s a pleasure to be around; he loves people; he’s a happy, happy horse. And he’s a family horse: He’s grown up in my family, with my two children. We can ride him on the trail, play with him; my kids can groom him and get him ready. He’s easy to be around.” Along with Quincy’s own sunny disposition, Mason credits “the people who’ve helped me” for fostering his trainability and cooperative attitude. “When he was very young, I took him to three-day [event] rider and trainer Tamra Smith, She broke him for me; I think a lot of his good manners can be attributed to her. Then when I started riding him, I had help from Kathleen, who’s trained most of her Grand Prix horses up the levels herself.” Smith showed Quincy a few times in 2013, followed by Raine in later 2013 and early ’14. Then Mason turned him over to another longtime friend, Niki Clarke, who she says shares her enthusiasm for keeping horses’ lives well rounded. “Niki’s horses are out in the pasture a good portion of the day; after a busy work week or a show, they spend the next few days just hacking on the trail or being a pleasure horse.”

Clarke says her facility includes “a Western arena as well as a dressage ring. I do a lot of cross-training: I do jumping, we go out on trails, do trot work up hills.” She even has a cutting-horse training tool: “a flag that runs on a cable; horses learn to follow and ‘cut’ the flag before they go into a ring with a live cow.” She’s used it “with a lot of horses,” including Quincy; “I think it’s good for them to deal with the pressure, and it’s a little outside the realm of dressage.” Clarke took the reins on Quincy during the 2014 competition season, riding him at Second Level. The pair won the 2014 Second Level California Dressage Society Championship, the California-Bred Futurity, and the Six-Year-Old Breed Futurity. In January 2015, Clarke brought Quincy out for “his first test at Third Level. In mid-November, he did his first Prix St. Georges, scoring a 71 and a 72.” He also “had a very solid year” in terms of getting past an early tendency to spook, “more out of playfulness than anything else, I think—but because he’s so athletic, if he spooked, you’d end up somewhere you hadn’t meant to be.” This year, Mason says, Quincy will work with Olympian Christine Traurig, the new USEF national dressage younghorse coach; “and I think Quincy will be doing Prix St. Georges in the Developing Horse program. It’s thrilling to see horses progress through the levels: to see them mature and develop, see the progress they make. And having had Quincy from a foal, seeing him go up through the levels is really exciting.” “We have some great people who’ve contributed to making Quincy the horse he is. He’s been so successful, and I’ve been so lucky to have this happen. I’m blessed. And he’s our pet; he’s our good boy. He’s definitely part of the family; he always has been and always will be.” —D.

Rosmarin


A

s an equine-science major at Delaware Valley College, Kimberly Herslow learned the usefulness of “putting a dressage base on my hunter/jumpers.” While developing her own horse business after college, she continued her dressage education “on more of an à la carte basis” with visits from international trainer and clinician Richard Ulmann. “We’d work together, and he’d help me with my young horses.” Back then, Herslow “was always training from scratch. I’d buy young, unbroken horses, start them under saddle, and sell them once they’d begun showing—I had a farm to pay for!” Then some clients offered to help buy and bring along a horse Herslow could train and compete to the FEI levels. With their support, she arranged a horse-shopping trip to Europe. Herslow liked Rosmarin on sight, “and within the first five minutes of riding, I pretty much knew he was the one. He gave me a great feeling, was nicely balanced, and listened.” She looked at “another twenty or thirty horses,” but “Reno” remained her choice. Reno was then “three coming four, and he’d had only about six months under saddle, though he’d shown and been reserve champion in Verden. So I didn’t just want to get him out and showing; I wanted to establish a relationship with him, and to get him solid in his basics.” When they did start showing, “we did enough to qualify for Regionals. First Level was our first Regional class, when he was five. Then we quickly moved up, and I decided we needed to go to Florida; I felt he was good enough to be competitive down there.” In Florida, with help from trainer Robert Dover, “We ended up winning both the Third and Fourth Level classes we showed in there. And Reno stepped up pretty quickly; he liked the challenge of the training, and the excitement. But we went home

after a couple of months—couldn’t afford to stay longer.” In 2012 they “started to school some of the Developing sequences and tried to qualify. But the class was pretty competitive; with my greenness and his greenness, we almost made the cut—but not quite.” Before heading to Florida the next year, “we showed at Devon, and Reno came second in the first ‘real’ Prix St. Georges we’d ever done.” Meanwhile, Herslow’s partners had concluded that they could no longer continue paying half of Reno’s bills. “Luckily, we were able to reach a buyout agreement, and my family was able to help me. “That was my first season really doing CDI competition in Florida. Reno quickly got into the groove with it, even though there were a lot of new things to figure out.” And Herslow started working with trainer Lars Petersen, “who helped me to ride the tests correctly. By the end of the season, we rode on the Nations Cup team that won the gold medal, and Reno had the high score.” In 2014, Reno “got a little sore from some footing he’d been working on, and I decided I didn’t want to push him. So we didn’t compete much that year.” Back in Florida in 2015, with her eye on the upcoming Pan American Games, Herslow began working with USEF dressage developing coach Debbie McDonald. Reno made the team as one of two small-tour horses and helped to win team gold. Where next? Herslow says she’ll be “excited to move Reno up to Grand Prix, but I’ll take my time. I won’t try for the Olympics—not the 2016 Olympics, anyway. I think our next big goal will be the [2018] World Equestrian Games. Reno is just ten, and I’m in no rush. He loves his work, and I’d hate to do anything to make him not feel that way.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Romantico SF


R

omantico came to trainer Heather Mason’s barn in late 2012. “His owner was going to Florida with her trainer, and they didn’t want to take Romantico because he was ‘difficult.’ So I took him in, trained him through the winter, and then started competing him at Third Level in the spring. He went on to win the Region 8 Third Level Open championship; then he was champion Third Level [Open] horse at the US Dressage Finals. “Right after the Finals, the owner said she wanted to talk to me. I was a little worried; I thought she might tell me to put him up for sale—and he’s one of the few training horses coming through my barn that I’ve ever gotten really attached to. “Instead, she offered to give him to me. She’d gotten him as an amateur’s horse, and he was not an amateur horse. Seeing us doing well, she wanted us to stay together. So I think she was happy when I said I’d take him. Now she can enjoy his success without having to worry about his expenses—or about riding him!” What’s Romantico’s appeal? “He’s a very interesting horse. He’s got a lot of personality. He’s very quiet, totally not spooky, never needs lungeing—but he’s also very naughty. He likes to nip: not from meanness; just to say, ‘I can do this!’ He’s one of those horses that always wants to stretch the limits, push the envelope a bit. “But he’s got three super gaits and a lot of talent. He loves to show, and you don’t have to worry about him spooking at anything. At shows, in fact, I think he’s actually the bestbehaved horse in this area.” Reliable though Romantico is while showing, “He’s a tricky boy at home. Along with the nips, he can be hard to get to the outdoor ring. Though he’ll work hard for you once he’s there, on the way he’ll play games, hop around, want to go back to the barn. That’s not every day; just whenever he feels like doing it. “That kind of behavior was tough on his owner, and a demonstration of why, as I told her, he’s not an amateur’s

horse. He’s a little too self-confident, but that makes him very good in the ring. He likes to show off.” Of the movements Romantico has learned so far, Mason says his flying changes are what she enjoys most—“because even though they’re still a little inconsistent, they’re very good. He really likes doing them; he’s learning his ones now, and he’s very good about them. He likes having a difficult movement to master—likes it a lot better than the simpler stuff.” Planning to “do the Small Tour” with Romantico in 2016, Mason is using her stay-at-home winter to get ready for that effort. The horse “already does everything in the Grand Prix, but his movements need to be confirmed. So with him we’ll be concentrating on the things he’ll need for the Small Tour. “The pirouettes are the most challenging movement at this point, mostly because he likes to get a little too ‘up and down’ in them. That requires more strength” than most horses expend in pirouettes. “But they’re coming along, and he’s quite reliable in them now; we just want to get him a little more ‘grounded’ in them. By next year I expect they’ll also have a little quicker tempo; they’re a bit slow now. This year he’s been very good in them but still a little up-anddown; by next year, I think they’ll be easy for him.” In addition to looking toward Small Tour competition, Mason is considering “the Saugerties [NY] CDI in August. Romantico hasn’t done a CDI yet; I think that will be a good one to start him with. Beyond that, we’ll continue to do the Regionals and maybe the National.” Mason is not in any hurry to move Romantico up to FEIlevel competition. “I’ll want to be sure he’s confirmed before moving him up, but I might dabble in it a little with him in the next year. If he gets bored doing the Small Tour, I’ll have to move him up—but I don’t see that happening for another year or so.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

INTERMEDIATE II


T

rainer Heather Mason first took on Zar, a product of Cornell University’s breeding program, as a stallion prospect. She gelded him when he grew to 17 hands (not wanting a 17-hand-plus stallion in her barn), then put him up for sale as a three-year-old (not wanting “another seventeen-hand FEI horse”), but eventually decided to keep him. In 2011, Zar returned value on Mason’s investment in him by winning the Adequan/USDF Third Level Horse of the Year title. Now he’s earned his second HOY honor, this time at Intermediate II. So it’s natural to ask in what ways he’s remained the same over those intervening five years and in what ways he’s changed. Says Mason: “Zar was spooky as a youngster, and he’s always been nervous at shows”—something she doubts he’ll ever outgrow. So “early in the morning of every day he shows, he gets ten minutes on the lunge line. The few times we haven’t lunged him, he’s been too explosive in his class—so lungeing him on show-day morning is now standard practice. And after his warmup on the lunge, he’s as settled and reliable as you could want.” Of the work Zar is doing with Mason these days, she says, “Right now, I’m really enjoying doing the piaffe and passage, because he’s changing it. He has very good technique, and he’s just now getting strong enough to really sit, carry himself, and express himself. “When he started piaffe, he was very, very grounded, and really fast. His technique has changed so much over the last few years, though, that it’s been amazing. The difference is a combination of greater strength and greater confidence—because whenever he’s really nervous, he moves his legs very fast. In those early days when he was very nervous, he did just about the fastest piaffe you’d ever see. And now

he’s calm enough that he thinks about the movement and works through it, and I can ride it easily. In fact, I’d say that now he does the most ridable piaffe of any horse I have.” At 17.2, Zar is the biggest horse in Mason’s barn. Compared with how he was in 2011, she says, he has “a lot more muscle, a lot more strength, and a little more ‘Grand Prix attitude.’ He’s definitely a strong horse, but he wants to be a good horse, and he tries very hard to do that. I’m only five-feet-four, and he’s still pretty ridable for me.” And, as in 2011, “he’s still a sweetheart.” Thinking about Zar’s 2015 competitive year, Mason says, “The quality that stands out most for me is his consistence. Pretty much every test he did was a good, solid test. Whether it was the I-I, the I-II, the Grand Prix, or the Grand Prix Freestyle, he was consistent.” The 2015 show that stands out the most in Mason’s mind is the Adequan/USDF Region 8 Championships, “because he was absolutely perfect,” winning the Intermediate II Open, Grand Prix Open, and Grand Prix Freestyle Open titles. Zar’s most educational outing, however, was to November’s US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington—“because it was a pretty overwhelming place, and he needs experience learning to handle that sort of thing.” As usual, Mason plans to “winter in place” in New Jersey with her horses: a great time to train and practice and plan, she says. Beyond that, 2016 “is looking like more Grands Prix, and CDIs; in 2015 we did only one CDI. This year, maybe I’ll move Zar up more, but only if he’s ready. He’s not naturally strong behind, so he needs time to build those muscles.” The horse turns twelve this year, she adds, “so he’s young still.” —D. J. Carey Lyons

Legolas


F

our Winds Farm owner Akiko Yamazaki calls Legolas’s fourth Adequan/USDF Grand Prix Horse of the Year title “pretty wonderful”—especially as it capped a year that was “a bit of a roller coaster.” For Legolas and rider Steffen Peters, 2015 included two major international competitions: the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Final in April and the Pan American Games in July. The World Cup Final was set for Las Vegas’s cavernous, echoing Thomas & Mack Arena. Mindful that Legolas “has always been noise-sensitive,” Peters devised a new training aid: “Epona Farms had been kind enough to host an evening underthe-lights ‘demo’ freestyle with Legolas and to invite about a hundred spectators,” Yamazaki explains. “Before the ride began, Steffen asked everybody to ‘applaud, cheer, make lots of noise!’ while he rode. We recorded the crowd, and Steffen then had the recording played during a number of training sessions. “It was the kind of noise Legolas needed to be ready for,” Yamazaki says. “People in Vegas are a very different audience. For them, the World Cup is another ‘Las Vegas show,’ so they don’t hold back. And having a US horse performing can get them even more excited!” The desensitizing work paid off : Despite the noise and excitement, Legolas stayed focused and finished third in the Grand Prix, “right behind Charlotte Dujardin’s Valegro and Edward Gal’s Glock’s Undercover,” Peters says. “I was happily surprised.” Going into the Grand Prix Freestyle at the World Cup Final, “Legolas wasn’t too crazy about the crowd,” Peters says. “But we need people to be enthusiastic, and our horses need to get used to it.” The pair’s score of 80.35 percent would have placed them fourth, but a post-ride steward’s check found a little blood on the horse’s side. That disqualified them. Peters—who’d ridden in his usual dull/no-rowels spurs—immediately acknowledged that “it is clearly my fault. I rode the horse, and I am responsible for the welfare of the horse.”

Recovering from that disappointment took “some time and effort,” Yamazaki says. “But the outpouring of support that followed showed the respect Steffen has among the riders’ community.” Going into the Pan Am Games in Toronto, Yamazaki says, “Steffen’s primary goal was to help win team gold, because that would qualify the US for the 2016 Olympics.” The US riders felt good about their chances going in; but when two Canadians scored above 75 percent early on the first day, Peters remembers, “I thought, ‘My gosh, this might not happen. We really have to score above 76 percent.’ So the pressure was tremendous. “I was very glad that Legolas and I could deliver under that pressure—and I give a tremendous thank-you to my teammates Kim [Herslow], Sabine [Schut-Kery], and Laura [Graves], who did a fantastic job. It was wonderful training with them all summer, and then the reward at the end was so special. I don’t think most other people can realize how extremely excited we were to win the team gold.” A day later, Peters and Legolas won individual gold. In Toronto, Yamazaki was especially pleased that “although Legolas was very electric, he still looked supple.” Then, at September’s Thousand Oaks (CA) CDI-W, horse and rider scored 81.325 in the Freestyle, “with Legolas delivering one of his best performances: He really was the most supple we’ve seen him.” “When Legolas is supple,” Peters says, “it shows me that he’s confident, that he’s feeling good. That’s been the case since the Pan American Games—so I completely agree with Akiko. “The canter work has always been the most difficult part for him, and this suppleness has clearly improved the quality of the canter in terms of covering ground in each stride. There’s also a bit more consistency in the changes; there’s more selfcarriage. And all that makes his job more enjoyable for him— for both of us.” Peters adds: “To me, the essence of dressage is that you show expression based on suppleness, not on tension.” —D. J. Carey Lyons
