Statement by Yvonne Losos de Muniz on CAS Ruling | eurodressage

Statement by Yvonne Losos de Muniz on CAS Ruling | eurodressage | Dressage World | Scoop.it

Dominican Republic's Yvonne Losos de Muniz has issued a statement explaining her reasons for quitting dressage entirely following her lost battle at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne in July 2012 for Olympic participation.
Muniz tried to appeal the FEI ruling with as major argument that the points obtained by Brazilian Luiza Tavares at CDI shows, where three national judges were judging instead of the allowed maximum of two, were unrightful.
On 22 October 2012 CAS released their official decision online and it strongly criticizes the FEI and its management. In Article 12.7 CAS writes "the tribunal considers that the FEI bears responsibility for both of these cases having arisen at all because the Competitions were not organized in accordance with the Dressage Olympic Ranking List due to an administrative oversight on the part of the FEI."
However CAS ruled that it "would be unfair to Mrs Tavares de Almeida not to include the results of the Competitions in the Olympic rankings because of a mistake that occurred elsewhere - namely, within the FEI."
The CAS panel, which heard the appeal, included Dr. Hans Nater as president, Mr Benz and Prof. Haas as arbitrators.

London 2012: Dressage riders Bechtolsheimer and Dujardin ... | Dressage World | Scoop.it

Great Britain could make history at this year's London Olympic Games with the most powerful dressage team in its history. I would expect them to be on the podium for sure and it would take a brave pundit to bet against them taking the gold medal.

Dressage rider and trainer Laura Fry loses battle with cancer - Horse & Hound

Dressage rider and trainer Laura Fry loses battle with cancer - Horse & Hound | Dressage World | Scoop.it

Laura passed away yesterday (Wednesday 26 September), aged 45.

She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 and had battled a re-occurence of the condition since June.

Laura competed at the National Dressage Championships earlier this month, where she was awarded a British Dressage medal of honour for her contribution to the sport.

She managed to teach up until last Tuesday, 19 September.

Laura's career started in 1988 when she won the H&H ”Search for a Star" competition and became a pupil of Sarah Whitmore.

From then she competed regularly with her top horse Quarryman, with whom she represented Britain at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, where the team came seventh.

The pair were also part of the silver medal-winning team at the 1993 European Dressage Championships.

Walking horse inspectors release conflicting Celebration violation rates

Walking horse inspectors release conflicting Celebration violation rates | Dressage World | Scoop.it
Last week, a USDA release said there was a 91 percent compliance rate — or 9 percent violation rate — at the Celebration. The Celebration's own compliance figure, released Thursday, is higher.

 

@HoofcareJournal writes: In a normal year, the Walking horse soring controversy fades from the news as soon as the Celebration ends on Labor Day weekend.

 

But this year is different and it may continue to be differet. While industry vs USDA inspection statistics may conflict, the bigger story may be that if the Horse Protect Act Amendments of 2012 pass Congress (after being introduced last week), the landscape of inspections and the entire showing scene wil be changed forever.

 

Keep reading Fran Jurga's Hoof Blog and the Jurga Report for more news on the future of Tennessee walking horse showing.

EA Confirms Change of Reserves for London Olympic Games

EA Confirms Change of Reserves for London Olympic Games | Dressage World | Scoop.it

@chrisestafford writes: The Australian Equestrian Federation has replaced Hayley Beresford as the reserve rider for its dressage team with Rozzie Ryan - an arbitrary move that has caused further disquiet among the Australian equestrian community. The reason given is: "The ability to positively contribute to the team is essential for an Olympic Games and in the interest of team harmony the Dressage Selectors have chosen to appoint Rozzie. Equestrian Australia has acted in the best interest of not just the Dressage team but all 17 riders who have been selected in the equestrian team."

 

It remains to be seen if some selection procedures across different nations will be revisted for future team selections in the light of several appeals and controversial decisions this year.

Olympic Berth for Matthias Rath and Totilas in Question

Olympic Berth for Matthias Rath and Totilas in Question | Dressage World | Scoop.it

It seems Totilas is still without his rider Matthias Rath who is still recovering from Glandular Fever and having to spend time in bed to regain his strenth if he has any hope of being fit for the Olympics in three weeks time. In the meanwhile his father is schooling Totilas and the German selectors are scratching their collective heads as the rest of the Olympic prospects line up in Aachen this week. Could this be a chance for the Dutch and British to overshadow German dressage or could the German rising star Helen Langenhanenberg taking over the mantle from Rath and Totilas who have failed to live up to their surrounding hype since taking over the ride from Edward Gal. As always, it's not over till the fat lady sings!
