"-No prior dressage experience permitted"
what does this mean in pas de deux? like the horses may not enter any other classes?
Elantair's avatar
Damn I worded that wrong it's meant to be 'no prior dressage experience required' 
sorry about that! ^^; Surprised nobody pointed it out before now to be honest!
xxElanite's avatar
ahhh i thought so too xD wanted to ask though! me and bekky will hopefully have a collab up tomorrow!
just curious, are pas de deux prizes split between the two if its a collab? >.>

Yay :D
Ehm well on the prizes front it depends how many points I can get. If I have some extra then the winners will get the prize money each, if not it'll be halved. For the art (from me anyway) I'll include both horses in it. You'll have to speak to the other contributors as and when though :)
