Thank you, I love that you can say the same thing as everyone else, but much nicer.

I actually would love to find a new trainer, but that's not happening because my parents ride with her as well. But I don't want a new trainer because she thinks jumping is everything. I see her as a "middle ground". She stresses flat work, works on proper carraige, impulsion, bending, moving off the leg, etc. But, she also doesn't focus 100% on dressage work. I see kids at shows who know nothing but jumping, and that's not what our barn is. Perhaps our barn isn't ideal, but I have seen enough amazing horses/ponies be trained at our barn to know that although not "ideal" her methods work and turn out happy healthy horses with excellent training.

Oh, and just because I think it causes some confusion, the professional rider in the video is not my trainer. My trainer has a bad back and can't ride so her close friend and collegue works with the horses at our barn. She's a fantastic rider, but I will admit I wish she worked a bit more on flat.
