I agree with eventerdrew - anything extended or collected and any sort of leg yields are movements that are far more advanced than Training Level Dressage.

Rhythm, Straitness, Relaxation, Balance, Suppleness are far more important things to work on.

I agree with 20 meter circles, serpentines, change of diagonals. Walk, trot, canter movements during these patterns - all the while focusing on Rhythm, Straitness, Relaxation, Balance and Suppleness.

What could even add spice to it - is make your finale a Kurr's aka Musical Freestyle. The rules are, while doing Training Level Dressage Movements.

Have a competition to see who can come up with the neatest freestyle.

I think any horse should be able to leg yeild and collect and extend it's gaits. All the riders are taught how to do that at my stable and everyone knows how to make their horse's do those things

What? Simple dressage? No, but I can get my mom to film me sometime this week. You're not the only good rider on here.

Thanks for the compliment.

I await the pictures of simple dressage from you.

StormyBlues- you can't just hop on any horse and expect him to leg yield and extend/collect his gaits right off the bat. It has to be TAUGHT. And most Intro level and Training level riders are focused on getting their horses supple, balanced, relaxed, and rhythmic before doing extended and collected gaits. There's no point in putting that in a intro or training level dressage test when you know it won't be comfortable for all of the riders entering the show.
