I ride huntseat and saddleseat already. I have wanted to learn dressage for a while, and I'm looking for a good place for lessons. But anyway, while I don't have a trainer, what are some things I could work on now at home??
Thanks in advance!!
101 Dressage Exercises for Horse & Rider: Jec...
This book! It has tons of exercises ranging from beginner to more advanced. It can make what some consider boring flatwork fun! Definitely look into finding a trainer who can help you down the road. Good for you for looking into dressage- it'll be a huge help to your riding and other disciplines even if you don't get super into it :)
If you want to stay out of the "white knuckle Dressage rider's Club"--NOT that any Dressage people Here are members =b -- look into trainers like Dennis Reis and many others who start their colts to listen to your weight. This will make your horse MUCH LIGHTER on the bit and easier to collect.
