Thank you Pinto Pony. =]
But what are the traver and renver? And is a halfpass the same as a sidestep? Because we can move over without moving forward. We have to do lateral work to warm up, because she simply won't move over if I we don't. I appreciate the help, I really do. Right now we are only doing things at the walk, and eventually would like to move up to things at the trot.
As to all of Spyder's posts, I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING. I know she needs work on the three basic gaits, I'm not an idiot, and I'm not rushing her. I'm not asking her to do a canter piourette or a piaffe, all our movements have been done at the walk, and I've found it really helps her throughout the ride, and she's improved much more quickly since I started doing them. And since you have never seen me on my horse, you have not seen us work together in anything but a video of ONE ride, I really don't think that gives you the right to say I would struggle to score well in a training level dressage test. You don't know me, or my horse, nor have you any REAL proof of how we would do.
