Shade of Grey Improvers League – August


Here are the league points after August. Just one month to
go til the end of the league, and only 6 points between 4th
and 10th place! Those top 10 places really are up for
grabs, although it does look like Helen and Isaiah have the
top two placings firmly in their grasp, fingers crossed
Rusty will be fit to compete in September as Isaiah has
continued to improve EVERY SINGLE MONTH, a truly impressive
record. The WTC/starter class is a much closer affair for
all the placings, with only 32 points from 1st to 10th.
Congratulations Margaret, who takes over top spot this
month. Please do let me know if there are any
discrepancies in your scores, this is the first year I have
wrangled with the maths!!! Henri

Shade of Grey Improvers League – July


Here are the league points after July, some terrific
improvements in the WT class, and it looks to be a very
exciting league, with placings changing every month,
although Helen is still firmly holding on to top spot, and
Isaiah’s improvement every single month deserves a round of
applause. In the WTC/Starter league things are closer,
there were less entries in July so less movement in the
league. Hopefully more people will enter in August as I’m
sure you all want to see me use yet more calculator
batteries!!! Please do let me know if there are any
discrepancies in your scores, this is the first year I have
wrangled with the maths!!! Henri

Shades of Grey Improvers League

(formerly the Vialba Challenge)

Shade of Grey Improvers League – June
Here are the league points after June, it looks like Helen
has a firm grip on first place in the Walk Trot class, but
it is exciting to see Isaiah and Sharron joint second, and
the rest of the top 10 are very close. In the WTC/Starter
league things are closer, although Linsey has a good 10
point lead. It looks to be an exciting summer watching the
scores build, and good luck to everyone in July. Please do
let me know if there are any discrepancies in your scores,
this is the first year I have wrangled with the maths!!!

NEW RULES

 The league will be run very much as before, with just one
change to simplify things for me! There will still be 2
sections, WT and WTC/Starter, however adults and juniors
will now be combined into 1 class (solely for this league)

Scoring will remain the same –


- Automatic 2 points with every entry
- Bonus 10 points for every seasons personal best
score
- 5 points for every complete 1% improvement in a
month over your base starting (April) score.
The league will run from April until September and rosettes
will be awarded for first to 10th place in both leagues.
Sashes are also up for grabs for the first junior and
senior in each category. I am also hoping to have a small
prize for the winner of each class.
Remember – this is one league that you don’t have to BE
the BEST to win – just DO your BEST to improve! Enjoy and
have fun!

 

In March 2010 I entered my very first Interdressage Walk Trot class, on a Radway Riding School horse, Gameboy, and scored a very decent 62.75%.  Having had over 30 years out of the saddle I was very proud of myself.  Over the last 5 years my riding has improved no end, greatly helped by Interdressage, the tips and advice, the discipline of riding tests, and pushing myself to try harder things, first the WTC class, and now the Starter tests, with first Bosco and now Bobby, my little dressage superstar, all culminating in a win in the Open Starter class in November, something I never dreamed we would achieve. 

Along the way I have had incredible support from fellow competitors. many of whom I now consider firm friends, and the Improvers League was so much appreciated, especially in those early days, when we frequently finished last in our class (we still do that today!!) but knew we were improving.  When the then “Shades of Blue” league first appeared, it was a brilliant idea and a way of acknowledging those finishing nearer the bottom of each class than the top, but who worked hard and made huge improvements over the months and years. My 3 Shades of Blue and Vialba Challenge rosettes are still proudly displayed in my living room.

It now looks like Bobby and I will finish first in the 2014 dressage league (fingers crossed), an achievement beyond my wildest dreams, and as a thank you to Interdressage I wanted to sponsor the Improvers League this coming summer.  I have asked Karina if I can rename it the “Shades of Grey” league, in honour of 3 very special horses, all gorgeous greys:-

1.      Blue, owned by Tracy Hall, who first came up with the idea of this league

2.      Quiz, Julie de Joncaire Narten’s gorgeous grey, Julie who has been running the league for the last few years,

3.      Bosco, my first horse who taught me so much and is now enjoying retirement as he is sadly no longer sound when ridden

The league will be run very much as before, with just one change to simplify things for me!  There will still be 2 sections, WT and WTC/Starter, however adults and juniors will now be combined into 1 class (solely for this league)

Shades of Grey Improvers League (formerly the Vialba Challenge)

In March 2010 I entered my very first Interdressage Walk Trot class, on a Radway Riding School horse, Gameboy, and scored a very decent 62.75%.  Having had over 30 years out of the saddle I was very proud of myself.  Over the last 5 years my riding has improved no end, greatly helped by Interdressage, the tips and advice, the discipline of riding tests, and pushing myself to try harder things, first the WTC class, and now the Starter tests, with first Bosco and now Bobby, my little dressage superstar, all culminating in a win in the Open Starter class in November, something I never dreamed we would achieve.  

Along the way I have had incredible support from fellow competitors. many of whom I now consider firm friends, and the Improvers League was so much appreciated, especially in those early days, when we frequently finished last in our class (we still do that today!!) but knew we were improving.  When the then “Shades of Blue” league first appeared, it was a brilliant idea and a way of acknowledging those finishing nearer the bottom of each class than the top, but who worked hard and made huge improvements over the months and years. My 3 Shades of Blue and Vialba Challenge rosettes are still proudly displayed in my living room.

It now looks like Bobby and I will finish first in the 2014 dressage league (fingers crossed), an achievement beyond my wildest dreams, and as a thank you to Interdressage I wanted to sponsor the Improvers League this coming summer.  I have asked Karina if I can rename it the “Shades of Grey” league, in honour of 3 very special horses, all gorgeous greys:-

2.    Quiz, Julie de Joncaire Narten’s gorgeous grey, Julie who has been running the league for the last few years,
3.    Bosco, my first horse who taught me so much and is now enjoying retirement as he is sadly no longer sound when ridden

The league will be run very much as before, with a few changes to simplify things for me!  There will still be 2 sections, WT and WTC/Starter, however we will not include the Open WT or the Open starter classes, as I feel the league is primarily to encourage those who are not yet at that level.  The WTC and Starter points will be scored separately, however they will be grouped into 1 league.  Also adults and juniors will now be combined into 1 class (solely for this league)

Scoring will remain the same –

-        Automatic 2 points with every entry

-        Bonus 10 points for every seasons personal best score

-        5 points for every complete 1% improvement in a month over your base starting (April) score.

The league will run from April until September and rosettes will be awarded for positions 1 to 10 in Walk and Trot Classes and for positions 1- 10 in the walk, trot, canter/starter class. Sashes are also up for grabs for the first junior and senior in each category.  I am also hoping to have a small prize for the winner of each class.

Remember –  this is one league that you don’t have to BE the BEST to win – just DO your BEST to improve!   Enjoy and have fun!
