Also, having re-read what I've actually typed I have an apology to make (I know, suck it up, Minstrel) - I've made it sound like I think dressage horses are stupid, or less intelligent or whatever. I honestly didn't mean that at all and I apologise, I meant that I've found TBs usually to be too smart for their own good, and that they are much more difficult to settle down to dressage in the higher levels because they do over think, get easily flustered and often can't take the mental pressure. This was my point, not that dressage horses should be stupid!!! I'm sorry, next time I will try to think through what I'm typing better!!!
