To be fair, every horse who isn't yet developed, in terms of training and musculature, as a dressage horse will "prefer" to not go round in a dressage frame. :) To do so takes a certain level of fitness and correct training for both rider and horse, and the unfit or incorrectly muscled horse will be thinking, "This is a little bit too much like hard work." If you'd gotten on my horse ten years ago, you could easily think, "She doesn't really like this dressage stuff." Nowadays unfit riders who haven't developed what is mainly core strength find her very hard work to ride, whereas she is easy peasy for fit riders. So you need both, horse and rider.
I agree with Spyder about Mr. G. I also think Bert is a pretty good looking horse. I know she has a kind of complicated back story (apologies if I can't remember exactly what it is) but with a bit of time and training, surely she could learn to carry herself a bit. :)
