Petition Tag - dressage
Dressage is a fast-developing sport in South Africa. International trainers are frequently coming to South Africa's shores. However, little effort has been made for the development of the sport's judges.
Thus, while riders and the quality of dressage horses are rapidly improving, the judges are not and this is restricting the development of the sport.
Unless our judges are on a par with their international peers, South Africa is not going to be able to compete effectively at international level at events such as the World Equestrian Games or the Olympics.
Every horse is reacts to different bits. You have to find the bit that works for your horse, but what about the horses that won't ever react to bits. You use the bitless bridle. The bitless bridle is illegal to use in Dressage so that makes an issue for those using a bitless bridle.
We think that bitless bridles should be made legal in Dressage. Here are our reasons; Using a bitless bridle means that your horse is happier to be with you, stays calmer and listens better, so you create a closer team. It means simply that whatever you do with your horse, you will do it better. Regardless of the age, ability or aspirations of horse or owner.
We believe this bridle eliminate the discomfort, pain and injury that can be caused by bits.The bridle forms a cradle around the horse’s head so the rein pressure and release intuitively gives consistent signals to turn, slow or stop your horse.The rubber gripping on the loosely-fitting noseband keeps it from moving and amplifies your stop/slow signals.
In conclusion, it improves communication with your horse - without the pain and adversity of a bit! It helps you ride or train better!
The propsed new grounds being allocated to Illawarra Dressage are uneven and unsafe for the horses.
Please help the fight to maintain the current grounds by expressing your concerns and signing this petition to be handed to camden council on may 1st.
