Finley Habenicht Grand Times Eventing The Carolinas Equestrian 01 Every eventer out there knows the feeling of waiting for your dressage score.  It can make or break an event!  I used to worry a lot about my dressage.  Even if my test felt great, I would leave thinking, “That transition was terrible,” or “OMG my circles were huge!”  However, this past year I have started riding with a whip in dressage, which has improved Aleta’s movement so much!  In addition, I have been working with my trainer, Whitney Weston, on improving Aleta’s bend and focus.  This has led to some of our best dressage scores yet!
