"Straight" vs. eventing dressage

Dressage judge Margaret Freeman talks about the difference between "straight" dressage and eventing dressage tests, including practical considerations, the expectations for performance, the design of the tests, and the conditioning of the horse. I think she offers some nice insight on the thought put into the design of the tests. Of course, at Rolex I think some of her comments don't hold, as it is a higher level than she is probably covering in her talk. At Rolex there is a halt at X, and the ring is 20X60. Thanks to MF for sharing these observations...
