AHHHHH, DRESSAGE. Isn't it the most beautiful dance you have ever seen? I absolutely LOVE IT.

While I am still waiting for my doctors ok to ride again, I really enjoy watching my friends take their dressage lessons. You can really learn alot from the sideline.

I am so ready to ride again. emoticon

I agree. No matter what seat each of my students ride, I teach them basic dressage. Every horse can benefit from being more balanced and in sync with their rider. It just depends what exercises I pull out of my hat, and when, in the horses/riders training.

On the subject of dressage, I do like it a lot. The dressage camp I went to recently gave me a whole new outlook on it. I had always used it to help me preform better, but never really realized how much it could help me. I also had always been told this or that horse weren't good for dressage. I watched this really great french trainer and it was all just proof that any horse can become a great dressage horse. Its like any person becoming flexible. That is what it is. Like Yoga or palatees (correct me if there is a better one I don't know that much) for horses.

Crazy people don't really loose their mind, it just becomes something more entertaining!

Truth is a mass appeal to something.
