It will also get you riding with second level on the brain and you might end up skipping the ever so important basics and trying to Travers and turn on the haunches.
If YOU have never ridden second or third level dressage, you are asking that horse to have a hell of a good attitude and heart to make it there with you on her back. No one can tell from a picture how kind and forgiving she is.
BUT, ALL horses can do Dressage. Start with the basics and just see how far you can go. Don't rush it or push too hard and you'll eventually find a natural limit to (both of) your talent.
thats what she's asking, DUE TO CONFORTMATION how high could she go?
She's wondering FOR FUN what level we THINK she could get to. When anyone says things about how high a horse could go in dressage theres NEVER any garentees they can't go higher or can even go that high.
This is only because she's interested in knwoing what we think,no biggy. :)
