I am organizing a dressage show. The more I get into it, the more I have to ask myself how exactly I got myself into this. I'm not a horse professional. I've never organized a show before. I really have no credentials that say I can handle this, but here we are. The bottom line is that no-one else was doing it, so I am.

Surprisingly, it is actually coming together. I finished the prizelist yesterday, submitted it for sanctioning, and released it out into the world. A lot of work went into that prizelist (both writing the thing itself, and all the organizing required in order to be able to list the location, dates, judge, classes, etc.) and I'm pretty proud of it. I actually brought the printed copy of the prizelist into my room last night and stuck it on my bedside table because I wanted to admire it a little longer lol.

Now to see how many entries actually come in!


  1. Here's wishing you lots (but not an unmanageable 'lots') of entries! :)

  2. Thanks! The ideal number would be somewhere between 30 and 40 entries, but as long as I get at least 20 I'll be happy!

  3. I know I keep saying this but I am just so damn impressed by your efforts in creating and fostering a new dressage community in your area. Wishing you the best of luck and many pleasant entries!!

  4. Way to go! I can't wait to hear about it. I missed it but which venue did you decide on?

    1. Thanks. I ended up going with venue D, they've been really great to work with and they moved up plans to build stabling (pens) so that they'd be ready for the show
