    There was a time when "dressage" was elitist. Lots of us learned to ride the flat because it was in between the jumps. . . I don't think dressage as it is often interpreted is the be-all: now, I absolutely love dressage, and I don't jump at all any more, but I can remember when riding wasn't riding without a jump somewhere. I can remember when we didn't collect our horses except on tight corners. We rode forward seat, and let the horse move in a long, natural manner. In those tight corners, though, hm, we learned about leg-yielding, balancing, shortening the stride, all interesting things that you MIGHT call dressage.

    Anyway, while her disrespect is unacceptable, I think you might go easy on the Must Do Dressage routine.

    If she is riding YOUR horse most of the time and she falls and has a serious injury (even if it her fault) you could be liable because it is YOUR horse she is riding, not her own, if she refuses to be safe, you should either have her sign a contract that you are not to be responsible for the consequences of a fall due to the rider's (her) actions on YOUR horse, or you should tell her if she is to ride YOUR horse she darn well better listen, because YOU should not have to be responsible for her silliness.

    Tell us what happens :) and good luck!

    Ps- Oh! And it is also not safe for your horse to just jump without proper warmups or a good base in dressage, because that is how the horse remains balanced and able to jump without mistakes, why risk your horse's safety because she refuses to listen to your advice when you are her instructor?

    Ahh! I see, well, if it is your horse she is riding, you have the right to tell her to stop being silly about not getting a proper foundation for jumping if you want to then. And if she doesn't care to listen you might have to give the ultimatum, if she doesn't want to listen you cannot teach her any longer unfortunately. Is she a close friend and that is why the situation is a tense one? I can see your dilemma I she was. :(
