5 GUIDELINES FOR JUDGING WESTERN DRESSAGE (excerpts from 2011 USEF document) "Western Dressage is defined as training and developing the Western rider and horse to improve themselves as individuals and as partners through the use and discipline of Dressage. By using classical Dressage principles, the Western Dressage rider improves cadence, balance and carriage of the horse. The Western Dressage horse becomes more supple and flexible as it moves up the levels of Western Dressage working more off its hindquarters allowing for increasing lightness of the forehand and encouraging a natural head carriage. "There are a few points of difference between Western Dressage and regular Dressage, most arising from the use of Western tack. The description of the qaits is virtually identical but the Western Dressage horse must maintain "ridability" for the rider in a Western saddle. The rider's position will also be somewhat different from that of a regular Dressage rider because of the Western saddle. The use of hands will appear somewhat different because of the Western bit; the Western Dressage horse should be "working on and accepting the bit". "GAITS: "Walk: A gait of "four-time" beat. The horse, while remaining on the bridle walks energetically, but calmly, with even and determined steps. No mixing of gaits. "JoglTrot: A slow steady, two-beat trot with engagement and impulsion from the rear with a lesser need to cover more ground than at the trot. No mixing of gaits. Mixing of gaits refers to patterns of foot movements/footfalls that are not true to the Walk, JoglTrot or Lope. While the need for extreme suspension and thrust is not required, the movement should be elastic with lift. The horse should be energetic and supple and always move without hesitation demonstrating relaxation of the back and engagement of the hindquarters while remaining on the bit. "Lope: A gait of "three-time" beat. The lope is light, cadenced with regular strides while remaining on the bit. No mixing of gaits. "BASIC POSITION: 'The stirrup should be just short enough to allow heels to be lower than toes. Body should appear comfortable, relaxed, and flexible. Feet should be placed in the stirrups with the weight on the ball of the foot.... All movements should be obtained without apparent effort of the rider, who should be well balanced with loins and hips supple, thighs and legs steady and well stretched downward. The upper part of the body should be easy, free, and erect. The seat, as well as the hands and legs, is of great importance in Western Dressage. "USE OF HANDS "One Hand - In repose, the arm is in a straight line with body, while the one holding the reins is bent at the elbow. Only one hand is to be used for reining and

6 hands shall not be changed. Hand to be around reins. When ends of split reins fall on near side, one finger between the reins is permitted. "Two Hands - Hands should be low and close together without touching each other or the horse, and with the thumb as the highest point. The elbows and arms should be close to the body, forming a reasonably straight line from the rider's elbow to the horse's mouth enabling the rider to follow the movements of the horse smoothly and freely and to apply aids imperceptibly, thereby allowing the rider to school his horse progressively and correctly. "ON THE BIT" AND HEAD CARRIAGE "Western Dressage horses are not shown with a draped rein; the rider maintains "light" contact with the horse's mouth. The horse must show acceptance of the bit with a quiet mouth and a willingness to maintain light but steady contact with no resistance... The emphasis is on a quiet mouth with head carriage that reflects the degree of collection and appropriate balance for the individual horse. "Good hands" are very highly valued in Western Dressage. The concept of a "gentle correction" followed by an immediate very slight release of rein pressure, coupled with a slight half halt, results in a lovely, soft carriage of the head and neck and a happy acceptance of the Western bit. "The head carriage of the Western Dressage Horse is the result of the horse carrying his entire body in balance. Overall head and neck carriage should be in relationship to the individual's natural conformation, showing the proper flexion of the poll and lightness of mouth achieved through proper training techniques which allow the horse to move in total balance and harmony. "SADDLERY: "Bits: Snaffle bits meeting the requirements of M may be used on any horse in Basic and Training Level tests. The rider must use two hands with a snaffle bit. The use of a curb bit meeting the requirements of M may be used on any horse of any age at either level. Riders may use either one or both hands with the curb bit but may not switch back and forth within the same test. Hackamores and cavessons are not permitted in any level in any test. "Saddle: any standard Western Stock Saddle to be used. (Silver equipment will not count over a good working outfit)."
