Texas Rose Dressage Classic
April 5, 2019 - April 7, 2019
Dressage is a highly skilled form of riding performed in exhibition and competition, as well as an “art” sometimes pursued solely for the sake of mastery. As an equestrian sport defined by the International Equestrian Federation, dressage is “the highest expression of horse training” where “horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.”
During the Texas Rose Dressage Classic, Cornet Noir and I won 2 first place ribbons (blue), 3 second place ribbons (red), and 1 third place ribbon (yellow). We also received a high percentage score, 72.188 percent. A score of 60 is good, above 60 is better and better.
Noir is owned by my Coach, Kai Handt, owner of North Texas Equestrian Center. Kai is the Coach with the most success in getting athletes to Paralympics and World Equestrian Games. At this dressage show, I was the only Para-Equestrian competing against able-bodied riders.
