He's got a cute little frame going for him, I don't see why not. Any horse can do lower level dressage if you set your mind to it.

He moves quite nicely. I see no reason why you shouldn't do euro or western/cowboy dressage with him at the lower levels its not going to hurt him
Your arms do look rather rigid and if you're going to post at the trot - which is normal in the lower levels you might find it easier to raise your stirrups a bit. I have noticed a bit of a mental block here between having a long stirrup for dressage when your more advanced and sitting to the trot all the time and the rather short stirrup seen in the hunt seat classes

UPDATE: Thanks everyone for all your comments, I have decided that this old boy will only be making one debut in the dressage show ring before I retire him from showing and hard riding.

No reason you can't incorporate a little dressage into your light riding ;).

You know your horse best. Congrats on how far you've come and please keep us updated! Doc has a fan here!

Thanks yogiwick, due to some issues with falling and feet problems I have decided that its best to show one last time and retire him as a trail horse and let him enjoy the rest of his life, im so glad to know he has a fan (:

Sometimes it is for the best. Simply due to my lifestyle my horses are all basically pasture puffs with the occasional trail ride/light work session (can't do more since I can't ride at all regularly). Let me assure you they are all perfectly happy :)

It's not like you're retiring him completely. I hope his issues improve!

Thank you he's been such a good 'ol boy he only deserves the best. He'll enjoy a more laid back lifestyle in his old age (: will update when our first and last dressage debut show comes up! (:

I think you're ready for the lower dressage level :)
You only should work on your attitude in the saddle, your legs are way too far forward, your shoulders, hips and heels should be on one line.

If you're going to ride a dressage competition, I would wish you very much luck!!
