This post is not meant to bash the discipline at all, but I'm so curious!
So a few weeks ago me and my trainer went to a dressage show to support one of the riders at the barn. My & my trainer both know nothing about dressage, we mostly do... well everything else LOL
So I noticed the riders were very sloppy (? For lack of a better word) and they moved alot when they were up there. This was am A-rated show, so they were no beginners. So why do dressage riders move around alot? I'm used to riding hunters, which would take all that leg movement as cues LOL
Do the horses just get used to the leg movements & swaying of the body?
