I know very very little about dressage. My horse had a race injury that prevents him from jumping; since I got him we have just been working on basic things but now I believe that both he and I need a job. Since it clearly cannot be jumping I've been thinking about starting dressage with him. I don't have any very good conformation pics of him and the only recent ones I can find his head is down The one with his head up is from many years ago before I had him. I was wondering what you think about his conformation as far as dressage goes. I don't necessarily want an overall critique but just critiques regarding dressage movements. He's 11 years old and has some arthritis in all 4 legs. I'm not looking to necessarily ride at a competitive level, but some shows now and then will be fun.
