Love Story works very nicely from behind, and she is very balanced and willing. She circles nicely and behaves very well at shows. She has a nice headset but sometimes lifts her head. I don't know how dressage is judged and marked, so I have a few question:
1. How are you judged?
2. In a novice class, do they take away points if you're horse lifts it's head every now and then?
3. What must I wear?
4. We are going to braid manes, but is braiding tails also required?
5. I have a General Purpose saddle, is that acceptable?
Any other advice and/or tips would be most welcome
