I came to the dressage sub-forum a long time ago asking (snicker) for how to teach my horse to have and English style head set! I was very kindly guided in the right direction and I've taken the ball and rolled with it. My horse is green and we've been working on very general stuff when I'm not too busy with school so I havn't had time for lessons. I have been reading some good books about dressage.
But now, suddenly, I might have a chance to finally start taking dressage lessons so that I might be able to learn this passion I have. I just know that I love and want to do classical dressage even though I've read more about it than I've ridden it. Ha!
So please tell me, what should I be looking for in a dressage instructor? There must be warning signs that someone doesn't really know what they're doing or has the wrong methods. I took a few lessons with the closest person and while I learned a lot, she seemed to be more geared towards jumping and she kept talking about the horses head and neck. Not much talk about the back of the horse and when she explained collection it was all about the horse's head. It makes me wonder if I should look elsewhere. Can anybody help me out?
