I recently fell in love with a fox trotter up for sale that was severely abused before his current owners got him. His sad story, beauty, and sweet disposition after all he has been through really struck a cord with me. But my experience is mainly bareback/some english with arabians and TBs.
If I get him, I'll be keeping him for a very long time and I can't afford to have more than one horse. So basically I'm wondering if fox trotters CAN be shown english (particularly dressage). I doubt I'd really ever be able to do much showing but ideally I'd like to have the option available in the years to come.
