I am not going to be quite as upfront as EF, but I do see what she is talking about.

Clarify for me, what exactly is it you are asking the horse for? While his trot is massive and very expressive, I am not sure it is balanced. I would be taking him back and working on his working trot if it were me.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

This is true! And he does seem to be enjoying himself, which is a good thing...

Unfortunately this is NOT an acceptable trot either at the low levels or higher levels.

You didn't hear about the new addition to the Grand Prix for 2011?? They call it "Extended Passage". Basically, the horse needs to bounce around and flail its legs and the closer to almost falling down it gets, the higher the score!

are you serious?
I know NOTHING about dressage. I just thought the video was funny. The horse looked like he was doing a happy dance.
