Do you think dressage as its own sport is portrayed differently when combined in an event?
I'm in the process of teaching my new baby how to not resist, and basically go into a frame, and he keeps his head much lower. My old mare used to do this as well, and I know it still looks nice - But do you think it's acceptable? Where do you like to keep your horse's head, or is about where he likes to keep it?
I know in the sport of dressage (not combined in eventing) the horse's tend to look even a little tense with their heads held high.
This is where my mare kept her head
I'll try to get a photo of my Paint's head soon.
