    I'm reopening this thread after a request but if it goes off topic again it's gone altogether.

    Actually - now that AQHA is recognizing the discipline and giving points for it, I am very sure you will see more and more stock horses - quarters and paints - excelling in the dressage ring. The leggy types will do very well.

    Dressage is excellent cross training for any discipline.

    What worries me is that just as everyone goes out and buys the dog the wins Westminister to be in fashion, that people will be buying off breeds expecting them all to be the next dressage master.

    I was certainly not blinded that I had the "odd horse out" with my quarab and the funny thing is Arabs were considered a no no until I got to FEI then it seemed like everyone thought they were the best choice (and cheap).

    I remember judging one arab show ( I think I was chosen because I was "arab friendly....LOL) and gave 2s and 3 for one horse that did a semi false passage in place of a working trot at the basic level.

    It is this "in fashion" type of following that we cannot allow those that have off breeds that will never do better than the basic levels to think that because one atypical individual having the best training excells.

    I think he is a lovely and talented horse. It is nice to see a horse with so much quarter horse in him able to do dressage, very interesting and I have no doubt he is going to EXCEL in it, he is an amazing animal with a wonderful and talented trainer.

    I hope to keep up with his progress.
    Thanks for posting.

    Just doing a demo.

    In order to qualify horse and rider teams need three scores of 65% and above in the Grand Prix test, one score in te special and one in the freestyle (I'm fairly sure..) from a CDI*** or higher. That's if there's four or less people from your country who are getting those scores. In order to be competitive you need to consistently be in the 70% range.

    I'd just like to throw this out there, but shouldn't we have a thread about the athletes who have given up their students and incomes, spent tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of man hours in training to prepare for WEG?? It's wonderful that someone has been able to train a QH to Grand Prix to go do demos, but lets not forget it's the competitors who are the reason for the event!

    That is a great idea, a spotlight on those people would be great, you should start one Anabel!

    Besides... what does well is what is currently 'in' just like any other event/show/competition with horses.

    What is excelling today would not have excelled years ago and vise versa.

    But that's just my opinion...

    I am sorry that starting my post by saying, "Who says QH's can't do dressage?" was offensive to some people. That certainly wasn't my intention.

    I started it that way because the first day I came on the forum I posted on a thread that said something like "Can QH's do dressage?"
