Dressage Anyone????

I just started learning dressage a couple of months ago. Basically I took an interest in it because my horse is smarter then I am, and he prefers I learn to ride with my seat and little else. It's been challenging. Is there anyone from the Maine area that is interested in dressage as well?

I don't like dressage, but I do it! The downside of scenting, nevertheless EXTREMELY important. I'm in Maine also.

Awwww yes. I do actually love the cross country portion of eventing. What part of Maine if you don't mind me asking?

Scenting? That's awesome VanillaBean hehehe

I loooooveeee Dressage, though I'm only working on intro and training level stuff. It's very engaging and involved.

I hope you enjoy it though!

I love your honesty & humility! The only way to become a good horseman is to admit when the horse is smarter than one, so if you keep this attitude, you'll go far!

Not in Maine, but I love dressage! Not a huge fan of jumping.

Lexington is afraid of Jumps! The first time he saw one in the indoor arena he looked at it like "what the heck is that". Actually that's the same look he gave me the first time I ever put a western saddle on him as well! We had him jumping over 2 foot jumps with a lead rope towards the end of it but he is dressage thru and thru (although he was a former park horse).
