WTF Karen Pavicic!?

WTF Karen Pavicic!?
Learn how to be a better rider instead of looking for loopholes! Karen Pavicic is a professional rider with funding and sponsor who expect her to conduct herself and compete in a professional manner. Unfortunately, this week she has chosen to choose a loophole that allows her to compete among the amateurs at the CDI 1* in Wellington,Florida.
As seasoned professional, Canadian Pan Am team member and Olympic hopeful, one would hope, Karen Pavicic would make choses to help grow and encourage more people in the sport. Instead she is looking for loopholes in the system to chase a blue ribbon! This is where dressage fails in the future.

Steffen Peters Training Philosophy Featuring SuppenKasper In the Grand Prix

Steffen Peters Training Philosophy Featuring SuppenKasper In the Grand Prix
This video first and foremost is about riding correctly. It is sad that so many dressage riders on Dressage Hub have failed to understand the basic training philosophy and principles of riding in our sport. In this excerpt from Steffen Peters he correctly defines the importance of the horse correctly using their muscles to perform the movements instead of the rider using their muscles to force the horse to perform the movements. THIS! My friends and fans is the essence of dressage.
Turn up the speakers and listen up! This is one of the best riders in the world, telling you how it really should be, instead of a few fan favorites pretending like dressage should be a wrestling match akin to steer wrestling at the rodeo a la Brittany Fraser Beaulieu and Karen Pavicic- seen in these videos here:

Brittany Fraser: All In is All Out – Recognizing an Unhappy Dressage Horse

Brittany Fraser: All In is All Out – Recognizing an Unhappy Dressage Horse
Bucking Bolting and Rearing this horse hates his job! A few weeks ago I posted picture of Canadian Dressage rider Brittany Fraser Beaulieu in the warm up with her dutch warmblood All In. My fans had mixed responses to the pictures. While some see it as bad riding when the horse is in rolkur, others said it is merely a minute in time and justify the post by saying I am merely jealous of Brittany Fraser.

Well folks, I can assure that there is not an ounce of flesh in my body that is jealous of Brittany Fraser, but what I can tell you is that I have spent more time filming and watching the warm up than any other person on the planet. I know these riders better than their moms. I know their tricks, their strengths and their weaknesses, but most of all I know their horses. I watch good days and bad days on most horses and here is what I know about Brittany Fraser and All in.

I have never seen a more unhappy horse in the warm up. And I would argue based on the show footage I included, he is not happy in the show ring either.

You can make your own decisions about how good you think this riding is, but what I know is that I have never seen a worse warm up, more consistently than Brittany Fraser and All in.

Dressage Commentary in Jazzercise Featuring Diane Creech

Dressage Commentary in Jazzercise Featuring Diane Creech
Dressage shows often have a golf like commentary, best done with a man with a British accent to ensure that we all know that it is the most pretentious sport on the planet. What if we mix it up a bit and try a different type of commentary on dressage videos? Would that create a little more audience engagement? I mean just for fun it would be great to have a football expert voice over a dressage test just to see how it turns out. Kasey Perry Glass shared a Jazzercise video this morning and I couldn’t help but think it was the perfect audio track for this video of Canadian Dressage Rider Diane Creech on Chevris Capitol.

Since dressage has been way to serious lately I decide to lighten it up a big with some good fun humor and a different kind of edit of one of the top Canadian Dressage riders who is headed into the CDI 5* Grand Prix at the Global Dressage Festival this weekend.

So, if you need a chuckle click play, if you are easily offended you probably want to skip over this edit.

Almost everything in dressage comes down to the half halt. Without an effective half halt your horse, your ride or your test will fall apart rapidly. unfortunately understanding the use and the feel of a half halt is a mystical unicorn, and if you ten different dressage trainers to explain the half halt you will likely end up with 12 different explanations. we have some great videos on Dressage Hub explaining How to half your horse when you ride dressage, but today we are putting the half halt into action by talking about the ten different ways you can use the half halt on dressage.
