my horse is long in the back aswell, he did up to b grade eventing (95cms in height) and I did 6-bar on him over 115cms! So he's no held back by that. His flat work was the hard part coz he's lazy

Our biggest flat work fault would be lifting. Sally just isnt made to be a dressage horse. Oh well, I love her anyway.

Its nice to know I'm not the only one with a long backed horse! Hahaha

If you love something, set it free
If it comes back it's yours
If it doesn't, it never was

I have weekly flatwork lessons with a dressage rider and instructor. That was the best thing I ever did. Last night was our first lesson for the year and I couldn't believe my horse was doing the movement he was, I got scored 9 out of 10 for out extention!!!! Yes he picked up his feet!!

Do raised trotting poles awell, if you want him to pick up ghis feet do trot poles then lift up one side on one pole then the next on the other side and so on. It helps
