Dressage training for Missy Hissy today up at the club. She actually behaved reasonably well......uploading her vid at the moment, but for now, here are a couple of vids of the opposition, this mare really reminds me of a certain red girl we know, especially when the first time they were supposed to go into canter, she tanked off and jumped out of the arena :shock: (didn't get a vid of that, sorry)

And this chap was obviously not happy having his head strapped down, but apparently they can all wear a de Gogue for the actual competition :blink:

Oh dear, poor Arab. Lovely armchair seat from the rider ;)

Looks like these comps are gadget-tastic -it just ain't cricket! :lol:

Here's Fina's practise test (filmed in 3 sections for ease of uploading, but you only miss a few seconds....)

She did pretty well, just dropped into trot one one of the canter circles. Far less argumentative than she has been recently!! Here's a link to the test, if anyone's interested, it's Club 3 Grand Prix: http://www.ffe.com/Disciplines-Equestre ... e/Reprises

Louise, the girls' old teacher (and still the SNO's teacher), is entered tomorrow too in a higher level class, bet she won't resort to gadgets.......

Nice test :thumbup: Those parts when Ali gets correct bend look really good -they are the moments when Missy Moo relaxes and is less argumentative. I'm sure they'll do really well and with no gadgets!

As I can say what I think ;) I think French dressage has lost the way. These kids are leaning back dumping all their weight down on the cantle when they can't even sit correctly to the trot :thumbdown: and then drawn in at the front with a gogue :o hope Ali does well without gadgets, good on her. Helen do they teach them to lean back like that?

All the teenagers I come across over here seem to have that same seat.

They do all seem to ride like that- I'm surprised that they are all sitting to the trot too - at the level that they are riding rising trot should be fine and probably better for the horses !!!
