I’m a visual learner — you can talk at me until you’re blue in the face or write a novel on the subject, but until I’ve seen it with my own two eyes it’s going to go right over my head.
For instance: dressage tests. I need to watch a test be ridden for it to stick in my brain. ESPECIALLY at the lower levels … all those 15- and 20-meter circles just blurring together in my brain like clothes in the spin cycle.
Thankfully, Eventing Training Online has done us a massive in posting video demonstrations of the 2018 USEF dressage tests for Beginner Novice through Training horse trials, complete with movements and directives. Bonus: Click here for helpful test-riding tips from Marilyn Payne via her preview presentation at the 2017 USEA Convention.
Click on the test you’d like to watch for a link to the video. All videos are hosted on the USEA Vimeo site.
Go learn your test. Go Eventing!
After Ecovet fly spray is applied, the fatty acids in its formulation evaporate and create a vapor barrier around the horse. This confuses and overwhelms an insect’s normal directional ability — basically its “GPS.” Thanks to this Ecovet barrier, the insect simply can’t locate the horse as its next victim.
