GOOD MORNING, PATRICK ARE YOU WEARING YOUR RIDING CLOTHES. WE JUST WERE TALKING ABOUT THAT, YEAH, I TRIED TO DRESS THE PART. DOES IT LOOK LIKE I CAN DO IT. NO, NOT REALLY. ALL RIGHT. WHATEVER. IT IS FINE. YES, WE ARE HERE AT DRESSAGE AT DEVON AND IF YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH IT, IT IS WHY LAURIE’S HERE, SHE’S CEO. HOW ARE YOU, DOING WELL. IS WHAT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRESS AGE AT DEVON AND DEVON HORSE SHOW. DEVON HORSE SHOW HAS BEEN HERE FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS, HUNDREDS OF YEARS ACTUALLY. YES. AND THEY HAVE ALL KINDS OF HORSES DOING ALL KINDS OF THINGS, THEY HAVE CARRIAGE HORSES, HUNTERS, YUM PERCENT. WE HAVE STRICTLY, DRESSAGE HORSES. I LIKE TO THINK OF DRESSAGE AS DANCING WITH A 1200-POUND PARTNER. YOU CAN SEAHORSES IN THE BACK HERE. THEY ARE VERY GRACEFUL. VERY GENTLE. AND, NOT A LOT OF EXCITEMENT ACTUALLY. NO, THEY SEEM VERY CALM WHICH IS RARE FOR HORSES THIS SIZE. THEY ARE TRAINED TO DO THIS , AND THESE PEOPLE GET OUT , THEY SPENT 40, 45 MINUTES JUST WARMING THE HORSE UP TO IF THE READY TO GO IN THE RING AND DO NINE MINUTES OF PERFORMANCE. SO WHAT EXACTLY IN THAT PERFORMANCE, IF I WERE A JUDGE , WHAT WOULD I BE LOOKING FOR. YOU WOULD BE LOOKING FOR HOW FRIDAYS FULL THE HORSE IS, HOW WE CALL IT, OVER TRACKING WHEN HIND LEGS COP UP AN OVER STEP FRONT END, SUSPENSION, WHICH IS LIKE THE HORSE LIFTING OFF OF THE GROUND. RIGHT. AND THE GATE, TEMPO, PACE, AND SUBMISSION, HOW THE HORSE AND RIDER REACT TOGETHER. SURE. HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO JUDGE SOMETHING LIKE THAT? YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PRETTY KEEN EYE FOR THAT. THE JUDGES KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN DOING AND THEY HAVE BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS AND JUST LITTLE TINY THINGS MAKE A DIFFERENCE. SURE. AND THE WAY A FOOT IS PLACE , CAN MEAN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SCORE OF EIGHT AND SCORE OF 10. WOW. IT IS PRETTY IMPRESSIVE. YEARS OF TRAINING GOES INTO THIS? NO DOUBT. WHEN DOES IT CONDITIONING OFF, TODAY AND FOR HOW MUCH LONGER IS IT HERE. WE ARE HERE TODAY STARTING AT 8:00 APE WE GET THROUGH SUNDAY AT 5:00 P.M., AND THEN WE’RE DURING THE BREED SHOW RIGHT NEW SO IT IS A LOT OF YOUNGSTERS, LITTLE BABY FOLES ALL THE WAY UP, AND THEN AS THURSDAY COMES IN WE WILL START TO GET INTO THE PERFORMANCE AND THAT IS WHEN THE DANCING HAPPENS.
