Commentators Jennifer Nell, coach to U.S. para- rider Erin Albreta, and Robin Breuckmann, both a judge, Paralympian and and U.S. competitor riding at the 2010 Alltech World Equestion Games are sharing their expertise and interesting details via Alltech headsets that can be purchqased at the arena. Nell's analysis of each performance offers both horse and non-horse viewers, those familiar with dressage and those aspiring DQs, a depth of kbnowledge about the horses' gaits, the movements, rider backgrounds, the horse-rider partnerships and the rules.
Listeners are treated to insider's take as to how the judges are scoring each test. You really feel as if you are riding each side pass and bend while you gain a concise wealth of knowledge with extra tidbits on each rider's biograpghy and physical challenges, which makes the para-equestrian sport unique and so compelling to watch. The quality of the riding and variety of impairments makes Nell and Brueckmann's insight valuable to understanding the nuances and difficulties of dressage in general and para-dressage in particular.
Spectator Adria DiMaria, who traveled from San Diego, is a Grade 2 rider and really appreciates the headsets. "Hearing this correct critique over and over really helps it sink in."
