The AGDF continues for 11 more weeks of top dressage competition through March 30.

Heather Mason and Zar

Despite a few minor missteps, Mason was overall very pleased with Zar’s performance during the test. “I had two little mistakes. One going into the first shoulder-in that he wasn’t expecting, so we kind of wavered into it. The other one was the second extended canter. He switched [leads] behind when I brought him back. But he felt great. He was very happy. His changes and his generic fluoxetine . side effects & drug interactions. fluoxetine is used for treating premenstrual dysphoric disorder (pmdd), a severe form of premenstrual pirouettes were very good,” Mason described.

Now that Zar’s rideability has been solidly established, Mason will start to work on his expression in preparation for the AGDF 3 CDI W, presented by US P.R.E. Association and Chespeake Dressage Institute, which runs January 23-26.

“What I need to do is get more power in him still. More power, more expression. He’s very consistent. He’s very obedient. Now I just need to get a little bit more brilliance out of him,” Mason detailed.

“I’m going to start working more with aricept uk! buy prednisone online canada . super cheap levitra. generic meds without a prescription. piaffe-passage work, which he’s done before, but hasn’t been a focus,” Mason continued. “I haven’t really been using it to strengthen his [Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire tests], which I think I need to do.”

Mason has developed a close relationship with Zar after riding him for seven years. She broke Zar as a three-year-old, even medications related to buy dapoxetine online in australia. affordable price, worldwide delivery guaranteed. showing him in-hand, and the KWPN gelding recently turned 10.

“We get along really well. He’s a really easy horse to get along with. He’s very honest under saddle, as long as you don’t act too nervous. That’s the biggest thing with him-he’s a big chicken!” Mason laughed.

Mason tailors her care for each horse, including a simple routine of lunging Zar simply for 10 minutes before he is ridden. Despite a tendency to feed off any nerves his rider may exhibit, Mason says Zar is a simple ride as long as he gets his morning lunge. Zar has even played schoolmaster for one of Mason’s young clients. “I have one junior rider who’s been with me for a few years now and she’ll ride him on the weekends – but she always lunges him first. She’s a fairly timid rider, but she knows how to handle him now. She’s learning a lot on him. She does the changes, (and) she’s learned pirouettes on him,” Mason revealed.

Mason and Zar plan to return for competition at AGDF 3. AGDF 2 resumes Thursday, January 16. The AGDF hosts 12 weeks of world-class dressage competition at The Stadium at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, continuing through March 30. For full results and more information, please visit www.globaldressagefestival.com.
