Dansih Equestrian Federation har togehther with myself and Dreamsportshorses produced a film that shows correct dressage and how it is judged by the dressage judges. The idea is to conduct mini seminars in Danish Riding Clubs. A number of ambassadeurs have been trained and the first seminars have already been held. It looks like a huge succes for the Federation and a lot of clubs, more than 20; have already booke a seminar and more are on its way in.
I have been conducting three seminars during the winter 1 in Norway and 2 in Sweden. Theme was freestyle judging and the judges perspective on how to improve the quality of riding and judging and of the direction dressage is taking. It has been a great pleasure to get into dialog with riders, trainers and judges at all these seminars.
The Olympic Games in London was a great experience and everything went well – even the judging.
Leif is running some seminars covering the judges demands for freestyle competitions.
The first was held north of Copenhagen and was a great succes with more than 60 patricipating top riders. The next will be held just before departure to the Olympic Games in Middelfart July 26th.
