Last week, an old riding friend brought her PSG warmblood to our barn to board. I got to watch her ride him yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful. He floated at the trot, had a beautiful spring to his canter, effortless flying changes, half passes to drool over, and not once was she in his face or loud in her aids. This horse was moving in his true gaits which was so refreshing to see. He has renewed my interest in dressage and given me hope that there are indeed very good high level instructors and riders out there. Hopefully the tide will turn completely back toward the type of riding I witnessed yesterday.
