Stay-at-Home Dressage Series 

benefiting the Equestrian Aid Foundation

We did it! Over 100 tests judged nationwide, from California to South Carolina, and the Stay-at-Home Dressage Series has concluded! Here are some highlights from the event, a few special riders we want to recognize, and if you skip to the bottom, you’ll see dates of our next dressage series!

 

Some highlights:

  • We had over 100 tests judged from across the country

  • Tests spanned all levels from introductory to intermediate and beginner novice to preliminary

  • Over a third of the tests judged were eventing dressage

  • Barns teamed up to record their tests together (all while socially distanced of course)

  • Riders received test feedback from some all-star judges - Carter Bass, Sandy Hotz, Janet Foy and Dolly Hannon

  • In addition to judge’s comments, our juniors and young riders have been receiving feedback from Lendon Gray.

  • Participants were introduced to the great features of Competitor Tent: training and scoring analytics, movement by movement scoring, plus scoring push notifications!

 

This series was education-focused and didn’t have any prizes or places due to FEI restrictions. With that, we want to acknowledge some of the best improvements and achievements by our series participants.  

Final Thoughts

Because of you, we are supporting riders and trainers who may be struggling financially during this COVID crisis by donating the proceeds from the event to the Equestrian Aid Foundation! With your help, someone is going to be able feed their horses this month, that wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. It’s just one big way you made a difference while staying home and staying safe!

 

We had a great team of people who pulled together from the safety of their homes to make the series possible: our super judges in the series, the legendary Lendon Gray, our amazing organizer Caren Caverly, and the teams at GDCTA and Major League Eventing for their support and promotion of our series.
