OPRC – Day 2

    1. She said it was a ported snaffle, and the brand was a double initial, although I’m having trouble remembering it. SS, or HH, or KK or something. She specifically said she brought it to show people that day… just felt really strange.

  1. I thought I knew who the judge was based on the bit comment until you posted about a ported snaffle…I know a lady in your neck of the woods that developed a bit herself and she’s a bit…odd…so these things would make sense with her opinions on things…hahaha

      1. I actually don’t know her name and it’s driving me crazy! I need to get a hold of my dressage test for the sole purpose of seeing her name. I will report back when I know, and we can possibly gossip and giggle about it.


  2. This is a very bizarre judge comment. Also, the whole “they do it at the spanish riding school” is a weird comment. They also do levade there, but I don’t think you need to do it in a hunter ring.


  3. Congrats on a good outing and the new helmet–I also got a oneK recently and love it. The judges comments seem very strange; I’ve never seen a judge comment like that other than a dressage judge perhaps suggesting trying a different but if the horse was unhappy, but there you specifically get written comments, not a sales pitch for a bit that is not dressage legal. Also the 3-3 posting/sitting is super bizarre in a Pleasure class. I’ve only ever seen it done 2sit/2rise, as a schooling exercise. WHY would you ask a Pleasure class for it? It’s not like Eq where sometimes riders are tested.


    1. Yay for oneK’s!
      Yeah I was thinking it was really strange! I didn’t even realize that bit wasn’t dressage legal, so that creates further questions! Agree on the eq too… the whole thing is causing me to question what she was thinking. I think I need to ask some follow up questions to the club.


  4. love the helmet – soooo snazzy! i want a navy one k so badly (to add to my black suede one k and gray one k skull cap… maybe i have a problem? lolz). also, ditto what everyone else said about that judge. sounds like an odd duck and i wouldn’t think too much about it. if anything really resonated, maybe bring it up with your trainer or another trusted professional… but otherwise? ehhh ignore
