good luck and have fun!!! (heres a little inside tip: to get a good score on your centerline, look about a meter above the judges head when your going down the centerline) it usually works

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Your mare is lovely, she'd do great for lower levels.
Just wanted to point out, unless you plan to show you don't exactly need a dressage saddle. I do dressage in my jump saddle just fine. ;] However, I am hoping to get one for my graduation present... ha ha. Good luck!

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

Dressage saddles will make your life so much easier in terms of finding yourself in a correct/balanced position. Jump and GP saddles force you into almost a chair seat and you need to work so much harder to get into a reasonable dressage position. You will notice a massive difference in your positions and ability to give clear aids when you get a dressage saddle- as long as it is the 'right' saddle!

^ Oh yes, well of course! Ha ha. Just saying that technically you should be able to do dressage in any saddle. :] And if you can ride well and correctly in another saddle, it'll be so nice, and easier once you do switch to a dressage saddle. (I get to ride in one occasionally, and that's what I've experienced at least.)
