I have been mainly showing breed shows with my 4 year old miniature stallion but have gotten bored with just walking and trotting around the arena rail and I am tired of those biased breed show judges too! I really have considered doing CDE. It looks like a lot of fun, but right now I am only interested in doing the dressage part. Can you just do one event or do you have to do all of them? I am a REAL newbie about CDE so I know I sound pretty stupid right now. I also want to know if my stallion is capable of doing it. He is 32", and I was wondering if that was too small? I have been told in the past that larger minis are better for CDE. I would like someone to eveluate his confromation and let me know what they think of him and if he would be suitable for dressage. He has several championships in halter, but I know they look for different things in halter than you would in a dressage ring. He is very forward , but does tend to be behind the vertical a lot when I have contact on the reins. Any way here he is, it's okay to pick him apart, I don't mind!
