I rode in a clinic with Robert Dover a couple years ago. He's absolutely amazing..both as a rider and a person.

Re early 1900's military 'dressage', I know a lot of people idealise about that era being of 'real Dressage' but if you look at the photographs and paintings of the vast majority of the military riders, the horses are incredibly tense. Yes they have the 'text book' frame of poll high, croup lowered etc but they appeared to be very much leg movers with a fixed neck and back. Which is the same complaint people have about supposed 'modern Dressage'. Just some food for thought ;)

I see nothing to idolise about the early military "dressage" riders or in fact most of the cavalry riders. Ridden understanding has moved on so much, through some bad times, but now I think it is really changing for the better with riders such as Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester.

I agree Clava :)
It is a sport that will always have its ups and down, and I think we are starting on another up at present. Horses like Damon Hill and Valegro being right up there, ridden so softly and correctly, is a pleasure to see. Not being pulled backwards, they are always up into the bridle, soft backs, muscles in all the right places. Beautiful!
