    Dressage is excellent cross training for ANY event a person might do with their horse. With a good instructor, you will always carry the lessons with you when you work with all future horses.

    All horses can do dressage, dressage is for the horse - not the horse for dressage.
    Good dressage is more important on the horses that has problems with it ( good dressage= correct work without shortcuts or fads).

    But to win shows, it's better with a horse that's built for dressage.

Is there any chance we can do at least OK in dressage (with lots of work, of course, I don't expect it happened overnight :) )? My trainer is surprisingly positive, but unfortunately she's positive about pretty much everything, so I don't trust her much on that. Lol! Feel free to be harsh - I'm not going to be offended!
    View this video and I don't think you have anything to worry about.

    Of course you and your horse can do dressage! My Paint mare was trained for Paint Breed Shows, with solid WP training. We've been working on our dressage for two years, and with each ride she gets more and more off the front end and pushes from her hind end, she carries herself easier each time, and we can maintain collection for a lot longer. We can even do half decent shoulder-in's and haunches-in's. =]

    Any horse with fine movement and the look will be good for dressage who ever says you need a warmblood and only warmbloods are insane.

    My mare Babee she is a Appendix and she would be soo good at dressage. Quarter horses, Appendixes Warmbloods even some ponys do good in dressage. Even arabians.

    I do how ever have an opinion if I see how the movement of the horse if he/she can keep underneath themselves if they can do proper flying lead changes and proper of dressage by keeping his head down and not in the air.

    If you show me pics/videos of your mares movement I can give you a straigh answer on wether she would be good for dressage because my mare was WP bred.
    And she is wayy beter in english to bad she has navicular or I'd do Jumping with her as well.
