Hi, Ms. Nebesky. My name is Tracy Belski, and my daughter, Hannah Belski, rode her draft cross in the Pony Club dressage rally yesterday. I just wanted to take a few moments to thank you for the wonderful job you did as a dressage judge. According to Hannah, your feedback was incredibly positve and very constructive, and in just a short amount of time ( a few minutes, really), you demonstrated a deep understanding of both horse and rider. When I asked Hannah what her favorite part of the rally was, she said, "Talking to the judge!" What especially stood out to her was your advice when her horse broke several times at the canter. I think many judges would have just penalized the horse and rider, but Hannah said that you recognized how difficult it was for him to maintain an uphill canter, and that he broke because Hannah was insisting and it was hard for him to do it correctly. You encouraged her to keep asking for that correct movement, and she left the ring so inspired. What could have been a negative, frustrating experience for her instead was instructional and affirming. How gifted you are at working with this age group! I can't thank you enough for creating such a positive dressage experience for my daughter. You're an inspiration! - Tracy.
