Fizz. Fizz. Gurgle. Whirr.

That is the sound of my brain fizzing away, on a slow boil, my eyes feel like they are about to drop out of my head and I have little puffs of steam coming out of my ears (v. attractive!).

I'm sat in front of 5 different sets of rules and regulations (with the electronic version on the computer screen) and 2 questionnaires with 300 questions! I have decided to do a course to be a Regional Dressage Judge and for the past three days I've been reading the Equestrian Federation regulations - general, vet, disciplinary, dressage and regional specific dressage rules.

Rules & regulations
The questionnaires are completed and the theory part of the course starts this afternoon and continues all day tomorrow. Over the weekend there is a national level dressage competition being held at the riding club where the course is taking place so we can use it as part of the practical training. Then there's another theory part to the course in October and more practical training throughout the year.

So I know where I'll be all weekend and I don't think I'll have time to post again this week so I'll wish you all a fabulous weekend and we'll catch up next week, hopefully buzzing from time well spent. Wish me luck - I think I'm going to need it!!

Hasta pronto!


  1. I wish you luck..Have a good weekend

  2. Good luck to you Andrea! Maybe when you come back you can explain what a Regional Dressage Judge is - I'm thinking it's something to do with horses....:-)).

    Have a great weekend! Ciao! Reese

  3. Ugh.... I don't know how you do it. I would go cross eyed with all of that staring and studying. Hang in there and good luck!!!!

  4. Best of luck! No doubt all your hard work will pay off x

  5. Thank you for all the kind wishes - I'll let you know how I get on at each phase (and there are quite a few!).

  6. That sounds like total mayhem! Best of luck.:)
