I am closing this thread. No one is being helpful any longer, and I will do what I want, when I want with my mare, thanks very much. If I don't find a suitable stallion, guess what? I won't breed my horse! NO WAY REALLY? Yes, really. No thanks for your help as I think it was a ratio of 20% help to 80% rubbish. I won't be posting on here my specific questions; I'd much rather get help from people who aren't going to be nasty about it and tell me I'm wrong and I'm this and that and I shouldn't breed cause your assuming my horse is some messed up badly conformed freak when she is most definitely not, unless you want to argue with people who know what they are talking about when it comes to Thoroughbreds. I will, however, thank Kayty.

Good luck in your future endeavors because luck is what you will need.

Somehow this was the attitude I felt all along and believe me it gets you nowheresville very fast.

The dressage world...THE REAL one, not the cyber one has a habit of stripping you down in public without a moments notice or care that you even bother to get up.

Just to fix a mis-conception you had above -

LY and HP are BOTH forward movements - forward and sideways. In LY the horses looks in 1 direction and moves in the opposite direction, bending around the outside leg. In HP the horse moves in the direction it is looking, bending around the inside leg. Another thread in this forum asks about dressage movements and another poster was nice enough to post videos to various movements. Looking at the videos will help out quite a bit.

My mare can do a LY straight across the arena - ending up almost straight across from where she started about 2-3 steps in front of where she started.. HP can not be done quite so steeply - at least not by us.

Dressage is for Trainers!
