i listen to music to pump myself up but i rarely show/warm up with it. sometimes before i get called for the start box out xc i’ll listen to some to get me in the zone but i think riders should go without .i hope people abide by these rules!
People should go without music while they ride anyways, ESP at a show if they want to ride their best. Focusing on the horse is key .. Surprised it took this long to be a rule ..
Unfortunately I think if you place your hair net just right and put in a set of air pods you could get away with it...
I do think that in dressage the riders will folow the rule. In showjumping not so much.
I agree with Iva-mari Miskulin. You totally loose where you are in life, full attention to your horse is key.
I think there are some benefits but disaventages too. A lot of riders use earphones to warm up with music, and I think it’s kind of really cool...
It is a logical rule but I saw at Qatar Longines, they dont obey it until the judges warn them
Might be a bit tricky, as earphones are normally used with the coaches when they help a competitor warm up so you don't have a million people shouting into the arena trying to be heard by their clients from the side
Yes it’s good - like don’t text and drive but now don’t text and ride
I think it is a good rule!
