Over shadowing

Over shadowing
The new guide lines issued by the FEI has given the stewards a new air of authority .
In recent CDI the collecting ring steward was seen approaching a very well known dressage Diva pointing to the over tight noseband, she immediately cantered towards her husband trainer requesting him to loosen the noseband . Few minutes later the steward stopped her again pointing at the spurs that according to his opinion were not FEI regulation , again she cantered towards her husband/trainer requesting to swap the spurs to the less offensive rubber bubble ones.
The numnha was changed to more in keeping colure some more adjustments to the general attire but apart from that the working in went un interrupted until the steward summoned this dressage Diva again and pointed to her that may be not breaking FEI rules but it causes a health and safety concern the way that her over long reins are wrapped around her stallions testicles .Her husband trainer who was pretty much pissed off with the whole scenario came trotting over shouting at the top of his voice “What the f,,k is the problem now” to which his wife replied
“The steward is concerned about you new OVER SHADOWING TECHNIQUE”
