As a trainer and breeder of dressage horses myself, why wouldn’t you use the best products? The horse is being graded on their temperament, control, poise and ability to follow the direction of the rider, as much as the rider is being graded on their performance. Such grading is influenced by a small amount of unavoidable biases and subjective opinion, so anything that can sway that can be the difference between a Gold and a Silver award when the differences are in the decimals points wise.

Making the horse and rider look good goes a long way! A shoddy messy looking mount and rider is just going to send all the wrong signals to the judges.

Honestly, I and the other top breeders have never made it a deliberate secret, and some people need to stop wringing their hands and start wringing their hair with these incredible products instead. Might open their minds a little.

Sometimes I suspect that Mr Horse and my Wife are having an affair.

It is Unclear to me from the Article, if it is the Horse or the Rider, or Both, that is using the same Products as Aldrith, Lord Consort Newelle.

I can’t speak for the others, but in my case it’s both.
