    Spyder I really don't understand why you have to keep disagreeing with me after I basically told you I agree with what you were saying....
    Then please, indulge me, and tell me what level you have competed at, rather than leave it as a silent threat?

    I never said you didn't have something to contribute. I just wanted to remind you that completely discounting the advice of someone who has trained to and then competed at a level that many never obtain, simply because you think she is attacking you personally, is not going to help the OP at all.

    I would also like to point out no one asked the OP what discipline she rode or why she was interested in teaching changes.

    The foundation for teaching changes, and when you begin to ask for them, is very different for a dressage horse that you're hoping will advance through the levels and eventually do tempi changes.

    If the OP rides hunters, jumpers or eventers, and wants to get a flying change while on course, rather than a flying change as part of a 3rd level dressage test, it changes things.

    Now, I know that's abhorrent to dressage purists who believe every horse ought to have the same classical foundation, but the fact of the matter is there are lots of horses that are successful in their own disciplines without it or who have been taught changes by the cantering over a pole method. No, those aren't correct dressage quality changes, and yes, that method will undoubtably interfere with teaching the horse tempi changes later on. But those aren't critical considerations to riders whose ambition is not to advance to the upper levels of dressage.
