The FEI. Sigh. plus Mannheim CDI3*

The FEI. Le BIG Sigh.

The Dominican Republic (Yvonne Losos de Muniz/Liebling) has lost their bid for an Olympic spot.

Dressage-News has an excellent wrap-up of all the issues:



I will only add—I wonder if Brazil hosting the 2016 Olympics had any effect on the FEI Tribunal’s unfair, peremptory, out-of-touch and rather nasty decision…????

It’s Princess Haya’s Birthday.  (May 3  1974)
Breaking with tradition, it is I who will make a wish:

       PLEASE let Princess Haya care a little more about dressage.


From Anky on twitter: <<Watch the movie Moneyball and you understand why people do not want to understand our training methods>>



Mannheim CDI 3* this weekend. It is a mandatory outing for the Australian Olympic hopefuls and they are all listed, including Brett Parbery and Lord of Loxley who have been quite of late.

The Danes are represented by Andreas Helgstrand/ Tacolando, his student    Anna Kasprajk/ Donnperignon  and Princess Nathalie/Digby.

Isabell Werth will ride El Santo , fingers crossed she has the piaffe under control now.


In the small tour, this is a Nurnburger-Burgpokal qualifier (Germany’s amazing national competition for talented young horses doing PSG-Int One).Isabell/Laurenti,  Christoph Koschel, Uta Graf with her Damon Jerome (by Damon Hill) reserve champion at World Young Horse and Bundeschampionat winner.
