Okay, so you may have seen me before in the jumping section and I've posted pics in the critique section too. But I am considering changing to dressage with my pony Donna. If you haven't seen my other posts about her she is 9 years old. 14.2hh. Morgan/QH cross. I have owned her for almost a year now and I have done pretty much all the training she has ever had.
I normally do jumpers with her. She will go over any jump I ask no matter how high or what it looks like. But even though she does that, I don't think she enjoys it a whole lot. She seems to be much happier on the flat. She has A LOT of energy and likes to go but lately I have been able to get her to relax and really work well. I have only been walk, trot and doing ground poles with her to help her relax but she doesn't even like to go over ground poles.
So, I was wondering what you guys thought of her if I were to do dressage with her. I have always wanted to learn dressage but there isn't a place close enough to me that I can afford. Well...here aresome pics and I will try to get videos uploaded soon. Thanks!! Also, please don't critique how im leaning forward. She has a somewhat weak/sensitive back and I couldn't find the gel pad so I was trying to keep as much weight off of her back as possible.
These pictures are all from 10/4/09.
