The first step in riding any horse (& dressage) is forward. Make certain you are NOT leaning forward as a rider doing this is telling the horse to stop OR it cause the horse to be behind the horses leg - and to be truely forward a horse needs to be in front of the riders leg.

A halt is performed in dressage by using the riders legs to push the horse forward into reins which do not give - they also do NOT come back. So when riding the elbows give and take, when halting the elbows stop at the riders waist and the riders legs squeeze horse forward so they step under themselves, hit the unmoving reins and halt.

OK thank you. I still don't know about the instructor thing. Im not angry, don't worry, but I think that its more of MY riding mistakes and me being stubborn and not listening. And also, I was angry and exgaggerated about my instructor shouting at me.. she is just very strict but she teaches well and she really understands horses.
