Read Col. Podhajsky, Philippe Karl, etc, etc. etc..........................

RESEARCH before one takes on a dressage trainer. Even great named clinicians are not necessarily good riders.

Yes, i found its a problem that people who THINK they are trainer, but are in no way legally a coach, that sadly have enough money to buy a barn, then they call themselves trainers, and people go to them the saddest part is if the students actually read some good dressage books, or looked online, they would REALIZE their coach isnt teaching them correctly!

You know what - that goes with ANY COACH in ANY DISCIPLINE today. I see $#!++y Coaches all the time, whether they are Hunters, Jumpers, Eventers, Reiners, Barrel Racers, Gamers, Dressage, Parelli - etc, etc, etc - there are far too many UNEDCUATED teaching the UNEDUCATED.

I don't give a patootie what discipline you do, research ANY coach you choose to take on.

Period.

exactly, all kinds of people do bad stuff in every disipline. some people just choose to pinpoint one and attack it, but every disipline has it.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

And, since you jump, you should be disciplining yourself and your horse in the sport of dressage to obtain the important fundamentals to make yourself and your horse that much better to compeate.

If GP Jumpers spend up to 5 days a week riding and training Dressage, there's a good reason behind it. Most GP horses can do minimally level 3 dressage movements.

I am gobsmacked at the lack of education in Dressage riders have today. Coaches now a days implimenting it in their lessons, or in their students, very sad.
LOL I don't jump, sorry I know I said everything else but I guess I forgot jumping.
