We all had a great weekend at Dressage, By Chance?—Saturday, Jessie Ginsburg and Vodermus won the FEI Musical Freestyle Challenge with a 71.25% (I-1), and Lucy Tidd was second with a 70.75% (GP). Unfortunately, poor Hans got a bit overwhelmed with all the excitement during my ride in the USDF Musical Freestyle Challenge, and I had to withdraw.

Austen Gage and her boy Bast earned a 63.5% in their first go at 2-3 and earned the TIP award at Second Level.

Sunday, Carol Thomas and Gentle snagged a 2nd place ribbon and their last qualifying score at 3-3 with a 64.6%.

Hans and I had a much better go, earning 70.48% at 4-3 and earning Fourth Level High Score.

Thanks to Michele Wellman and team for a great show, as always.

Playing catch up on show results! Hans earned High Score at Fourth Level at Rosinburg Events LLC’s Virginia Summer Dressage with a 69.86%.

Thank you to my client and friend who let me take her lovely boy Emaico down the centerline at Prix St. Georges. This was a fun catch ride—I have ridden “Mikey” a bit at home, but never through a test at all until this show! We earned a 65.4%, and I was awarded the Best Seat award for the FEI levels! Thank you, Mikey. ❤️

Lucy Tidd and her herd did great, with Ellert HB having two solid GP tests, L’Amour Fou winning both Fourth Level classes with scores of 67%+, and Kayla winning her First Level class on a 68%.

We had a super weekend at Dressage at Lexington, as you can tell by the photo. And that’s even missing two more blue ribbons, two more Challenge class ribbons, two additional Reserve Champion SHAC ribbons, and an Overall High Score ribbon. 🤪

Carol Thomas and Gentle debuted at Third Level in style. With scores from 63-66%, they were first or second in all of their classes, and even earned a couple of 9s.

Jessie Ginsburg and Vodermus won their I-1 class on Friday with a super score of 69.265%. Saturday they were Reserve Champion in the FEI Musical Freestyle Challenge, and placed 8th in the I-1 Challenge on Sunday. They were also Reserve Champion for the PSG/I-1 SHAC.

Lucy Tidd and Ellert HB won their GP class on Friday, and earned 4th in both the FEI Musical Freestyle Challenge and the Maestro Cup. They were also Reserve Champion in the I-2/GP SHAC.

My Hans was 6th in a very competitive PSG Challenge on a 68.5%, and won the USDF Musical Freestyle Challenge on 75.6%. He also earned High Score MFS on Saturday and Overall High Score MFS of the show.

Thank you VADA, Bettina Longaker, and all volunteers for an amazing show!

An excessive amount of ribbons for one ride, but I’m not complaining! Hans was a star, winning the USDF Musical Freestyle Challenge at Dressage at Lexington this weekend with a 75.6% (Fourth Level). He also earned High Score MFS of the day, and Overall High Score MFS of the show. We had very limited practice time (I finished editing my music Tuesday, and we left for the show Thursday! 🙈) and despite some nervousness about the atmosphere in the coliseum, he came through for me. The most amazing boy. 🖤 Thank you to my sponsor @customsaddlery for allowing us to perform at our best, fitted by the wonderful @ridetimesboutique .

Principles of Horsemanship: Part 9 – Mentality | The Horse Magazine

“That the horse is not a reasoning creature matters a great deal. Overestimating an animal’s mental ability leads to all sorts of assumptions that have bad consequences for horses. That the horse doesn’t reason means he is an entirely innocent partner in the training process. The horse cannot be blamed for misdemeanours or poor performance – these are due largely riding or training or health problems. When a horse behaves in ways that don’t suit us it is wrong to say: “He knows what he did wrong” or “He understands”. There is no understanding in the horse – he simply reacts to situations, events, aids etc. His behaviour at any one time is a snapshot into the sum total of all his training. If he behaves badly at an event compared to home it means one of two things – either he is not established in his work at home or else his work at home is flawed with at least some confusions.”

Principles of Horsemanship: Part 9 – Mentality Posted on December 3, 2014 by horsemagazine Appreciating the similarities and differences in mental ability between horses and humans is crucial to effective and humane training. We humans are a collectively insecure lot. We are determined it seems, t...
