I think there would be a point in having judges at the preparation area instead of stewards.
Especially dressage riders are very aware of judges opinions and will usually try to look as good as possible. After all this judge maybe in the jury…"
I've looked up the translation of "falscher Knick" and it describes a kink in the horses neck at the 3rd cervical. I have uploaded a drawing that shows what I mean. Its the 2nd from the left that shows it most clearly.
I think we're on the same track. Surly the training of judges is a key point.
The method of judging in half scores should be tested in some events.
Also I'd expect the team to get 4 riders again. The original idea was that it will…"
I'll visit the auction at march 7th and see first hand how the experiment with the different style trained horses came out. Here is a lot of publication in German about this. I don't know how its recognized internationally. - I'll…"
I think one of the difficluties you'll meet in research is the dispute about short term and long term effects.
A horse, used to the method will not be very exited unless the rider forces it, hence the immediate reactions will be pretty…"
when yo talk about science I presume you mean verterinary discipline? If so, you should read Dr. Heuschmann's book and look at his film. However from a scientific point of view the book will be more precise. Its actually not so easy…"
I'm a dressage fan but I do show jumping, western riding as well. I'm also a judge or dressage and show jumping, but not on intl. level. I have a Holsteiner and a Spanish horse and its great fun riding those and compare the differences.
Do you have any pets?

by the way I have friesians and andalusians, and also breed for warlanders and true palomino andalusians- more than color- the sires and dams were chosen for their quality and being gold is just a plus.
Of course as a friesian owner- Love black. thanks! susie
You are correcct, the 1972 Olympics was a little before my time; however, my uncle competed for the Canadian team in volleyball that year. I know that I have seen clips of horses jumping enormous fences, but haven't been able to find anything today from those games. It must have been something to have been able to see it, when it was happening! And what is a horseshow without beer? My husband has recently developed a good taste for Warstiener. He had spent some time in Munster last summer.
Where did you train? My old coach was raised in Germany, his name was Otto Sameit. He passed away last year. He was sure tough but made very VERY good riders.
I hope you enjoy your day! The sun is out here, so I think I will enjoy mine.
