^I agree, get your hands on as much as you can read as possible. Dressage Today is a good magazine.
The basis of all dressage is RYTHEM. So work on getting your horse moving forward from behind in a steady even pace first in the walk, then the trot, then finally the canter. Also do figures and see how your horses balance is. (20m circles, figure eights, serpentines[if I'm wrong please correct me if she shouldn't try to do simple figures yet. Both my horses were natural in dressage so we're always doing circles and figures...])
