The editor of Eurodressage.com has always been very upfront in expressing her opinions over the years and this topic is a red hot flaming one -
The FEI has a proposed rule change coming up for vote on allowing blood to be on the lips of the dressage horse. It may even extend to the sides of the horse as well.
So if you care about equine welfare, please consider signing the online petition against allowing blood to flow during training or competition!
It takes only a few seconds (literally less than a minute) and your identity can be kept confidential. Please consider signing the petition in the hope of keeping dressage bloodless.
