OPINION: British Dressage Equine Influenza Rule

Isn't it great that we participate in a sport that is constantly assessing its rules, guideline and safety measures? I think so... However, I was recently surprised to see the high number of upset members of British Dressage over the introduction of six monthly boosters against Equine Influenza on the Facebook group (By the way, if you're into dressage in anyway, make sure you've joined the British Dressage group on Facebook - it's a really good discussion and support group)

At the start of 2019, there was an exceptionally high number of outbreaks of Equine Influenza, so much so that it made the national press. I had people in my office asking me about it who usually couldn't tell the head from a tail of a horse... It was fairly big news. It broke just before Louie and I were due to go to the Winter Regionals, where we were stabling overnight, surrounding by 100 or so other horses, and in contact with a lot of other people.

Named in Top 3 UK Dressage Blogs!

I'm super proud to announce that Team Tunnah Eventing has been listed at number 3 in Feedspot's Top UK dressage blogs! What a fantastic email to wake up to, having known nothing about the listing, and to see that we are surrounded by amazing equestrian blogging company!

Being featured so highly in a list such as this means a lot to me, as I put a lot of passion into my posts around our training, competitions and general posts about dressage, as well as the efforts that it takes to push my content out into social media. It's very rewarding to be featured and to see that only Horse & Hound and British Dressage were above us makes it even more special...

While we were number 3 in the UK list, we've also been previously added to the top dressage blogs worldwide and feature at number 25! If you really love dressage, then this list has literally the best of the best blogs & websites from around the globe that feature content all about dressage riding, training, industry news and events, so it's well worth heading over to check it out!

The Six Scales of Dressage Training

Photo credit: Paul Dobson Photography
Do you love dressage? Are you often working hard to improve your dressage peformance? Are you simply new to dressage and looking for a way to understand what it's all about?

Well, the first thing to ask is do you know what the six scales of dressage riding & training are?

I recently took a deep dive into the six scales in an effort to improve our training at home in between sessions with our coach. upon reading several sources and definitions, I realised that the principles to the six scales of training weren't as complex as I anticipated. The more I read, the more sense they made and started to become really natural in my way of thinking towards our own dressage training.

Over the last 8 weeks, I've taken the time to put the six scales of dressage training into my own words, sharing my own understanding of them and have tried to put it in simple words for others to learn about them.
