I hate to say this.. but if you are looking at the higher levels of dressage this is not the right horse. She is downhill and he shoulder is far to steep. Will dressage training help her? yes. Will she ever do balanced 1 tempe changes... probably not.

She is a GREAT horse to learn from.

Ewe-neck improvements

Although her neck will never look 100% "normal" due to the way it is built, she has made improvement in the last four months.

The top photos are wen I first got her. Bottom photos are from last night

I honestly can't believe how much her neck has changed! Fantastic job. Its definitely still structurally ewed, but its much harder to pick out now. She sure is a pretty color.

be in your journey, but not all of

I missed this back in May...and want to compliment you on your work. Even in the first picture, you can see the "try" in her. That attitude means WAY more than perfect conformation.

LOVELY mare!!

Great work! I missed this thread when it first came out too and started looking from the beginning today. Can't believe the change you managed! Excellent work, two massive thumbs up!

ETA: By the way, what make and model is your saddle? It looks extraordinarily like mine! And if it is, great saddle

Thanks everyone! She is a really great mare and really aims to please.

My saddle is a Passier! I just bought it back in may after almost all of my tack was stolen. It is the best saddle I have ever had!
