    I've been wanting to take Dressage lessons for quite some time now, but the trainers in my area are very expensive, and there's only 2 local. I was wondering, for both my horse and I, what are some exercises I could do at home, without a trainer, my Trainer now has ridden dressage and is helping me, but when she's giving lessons I work on a lot of cavalletti work, lead changes, shoulder-in, that sort of thing.

    But what other exercises could I do at home for flat work?

    No I don't, sadly I don't have anyone to video tape me or take pictures, except at shows.

    Circles and lots of transitions always help. :P

    Try riding the dressage tests (See a link in the dressage patterns thread above for current test patterns). They have exercises to help you - plus GOOGLE for dressage articles thaty have exercises, such as the recent Lisa Wilcox article.
