Moving on to the meeting later that afternoon of the IDTC, the hot topic of discussion was of course the proposed “Blood Rule.” And believe me, Rita, it was a hot topic! But again, this has become a moot point in the last 24 hours as the FEI Dressage Committee has announced the withdrawal of the rule proposed by the IDTC. So the debate will go on, and I hope, one day, we will vote on a rule for dressage that is acceptable to all the stakeholders in our sport.
More personally interesting for me was a short discussion about the Judge’s Supervisory Panel. David Hunt, president of our trainers club, is also a member of the JSP. Which again, I would like to discuss in my next blog! And wait ‘til you hear about the panel I got to take part in during a presentation on dressage judging by Katrina Wüst and Wim Ernes. Hangin’ on a cliff, Rita, hangin’ on a cliff…
I’m Catherine Haddad Stalle,r and I’m sayin it like it is from Vechta, Germany.
