Dressage guru inbound
Chris Eales has many years of experience judging dressage, including pony club, eventing and EA at both regional and metro venues.
Eales has scribed at highlevel competitions and judged at breed shows, stock horse events and show-horse events.
She is also an accredited EA, level 1 general coach and a level 2 dressage specialist, coach educator, skill specific trainer assessor, western dressage judge and working equitation judge.
Eales started riding as a teenager on her parents’ farm, riding borrowed ponies. She joined the local pony club and later joined the local riding club, taking up dressage when the current horse was not interested in anything else.
Eales has successfully ridden and trained her own horses (a variety of types and breeds), from prelim to grand prix, been a State dressage squad member, represented the State at national competitions as a team and individual member in Melbourne and Sydney on several occasions.
