So I was reading one of my Dressage Today magazines earlier today and there was an article about the men in dressage. The article is Wanted: More Men in Dressage if you're curious.
Anyway, it's as though you go for years in lower level dressage competitions rarely seeing men at all and then one day you get to an upper level, national or international events and suddenly they are dominating the competition (Steffen Peters, Guenter Seidel, John Williams, etc.)! Now granted I understand some of these men do compete in eventing but still, a lot of them are still clearing out those "blue ribbons" in dressage.
What I wanna know, does the same apply to other parts of the country? Are your dressage or english riding competitions dominated by women or do you compete equally against both genders?
