I am writing to say how pleased I am with the whole organisation of Interdressage.
My horse is a terrible traveler, and I now don't have access to transport that is big enough to accommodate him anyway (he's a touch over 18hh!).
I have hacked to a couple of local riding club events, which is 1 1/2 hrs hack there, 1 1/2 hrs back, and makes for a long and tiring day for both of us. Plus, the events are held on our local county showground, and there is always something else going on too, like dog agility shows, food festivals, brass bands etc. This doesn't help when trying to work with a horse that's very sensitive!
I've always felt that my horse can work nicely, we know each other well, I've had him since a youngster; but on many occasions such distractions have hampered his performance, and therefore the feedback I get on score sheets can be quite upsetting to read, as I feel a lot of the time he's trying his best, but then a band will strike up and spook him, etc!
So, I would like to say how wonderful it is to be able to compete against other people in an environment where the horses are settled, and can show off their abilities fairly.
Also, I would like to say how well organized the Interdressage team appear to be, with quick score sheet returns, and it's nice to read kind and constructive comments and feedback, that gives you something work towards.
Therefore, I would like to say a big thank you and we will be entering again.
Received score sheet and very chuffed with our progress. Advice and tips are brilliant and will include them in our schooling. We look forward to next month's test and hopefully we will both have improved further. We had been struggling with the medium trot for some time but the advice on the last test really helped gel things together for us and we can begin on building it up from here.
Many thanks once more
Thank you for that, I am soooo pleased with the result, not bad for a first attempt!!! Your feedback is brilliant and very helpful; I shall be trying all the things you recommend. Hopefully we will be back for another go soon.
