, 2014 KCDA Play Day
Big thanks to Lindsay Dye for hosting the July Play Day at her arena! The morning turned out to be surprisingly cool for late July, and riders had to scurry to the barn and sheds a couple of times when rain showers came through.Laurie Urish demonstrated basic geometry and riders had the opportunity to practice and have “do-overs” when they missed touchpoints. All the riding was peppered with tips for riding the circles and free gaits; plus the importance of steady tempos, soft feel and rewarding the “try.” The final exercise was riding a walk-trot test. Laurie and Joan Stibal took turns calling the tests.Everyone had a chance to get familiar with the court and letters. A couple stirrup adjustments and bit changes had been made during the course of the Play Day – or morning, to be more exact. And by the morning’s end, even the more apprehensive horses showed a lot of relaxation.Play Day welcomed a husband and wife duo from Columbia, Mo., who are interested in riding Cowboy Dressage; and their friend from Spring Hill, Kan., who has a horse in training in classical dressage and is interested in riding in a western saddle.
