    When you enter the show ring, and compete against those who have solid basic dressage under their belts, will clean house, leaving those with the lack of education - behind.
    you always think that just because someone dosen't do something that you think they should do in riding is wrong and they'll always be bad riders your trainer isn't that good of one if she's telling you that to be a "good" rider you have to do dressage.Personally I think she wouldnt be any good if she told you that. Yes I do agree that flat work is dressage I will not argue there I never said it wasn't.Also I have praticed dressage before junior knows it and is good. So please stop ganging up on me like I think it has nothing to do with flat work and that I will never be a good rider and always have holes because you don't know me and you don't know my horse and have never seen me ride.

    Flat work is essential because you don't just jump from a standstill.. unless you've got a mule! XD
    And I find cantering fun.. trotting can be fun if we play around with it.. Rueprt knows tons of dressage- I kinda feel bad triyng to train him for jumping, he's destined to be a dressage horse. Haha,

    Jumping is dressage with speed bumps.


    Never were truer words uttered.

    Maybe when you get older you will understand why we say such things.

    Haha I knew you were going to do that. You said you were 13 in a previous post. Dressage is the basics to almost everything you do in the saddle. You said you don't understand it.... thus older hopefully you will . If you don't understand basics. Then I don't understand how you will do fine without it.

    I think people that compete in dressage do it because its so challenging. It is the foundation to almost any equine sport out there (and if you are thinking "Nope not horse racing or polo" ... I totally think it all comes down to dressage). With dressage you learn rhythm, how to focus, relax, collection, and improve your movements and weak points. People that jump, and jump well, use all of these points in dressage. If you don't have rhythm, you get out of focus, can't collect, and basically your riding isn't going to get any prettier. Same for the other points, if you don't have collection, you can't focus your horse with what you are asking, you can't get into constant rhythm because your horse is not focused on you. These are only a few points in dressage.

    All those people who compete in dressage I look up to. They are focused on what their horse is doing, and what they can do to improve and move to the next level. (As for those people that compete in dressage only to win... shame on you lol).

    I'm 19 and currently in college... for what degree? I have no clue but I'm at least giving it a go haha.
