I'm sorry, but that is how PROFESSIONAL horses are supposed to be.That's how he is meant to be trained! If you happen to watch the Olympics and see the horses in dressage, they put their head down! He is supposed to put his head down. So actually, he is is NOT dragging his head.
2nd. He's a thoroughbred. So it's pretty good that a thoroughbred can do all this cool stuff.
3rd. In the last picture I just cleared a jump if you can't see it, it's to the right of the picture. And sometimes it takes me a little bit to get back into my normal position!
4th. Sometimes I loose my stirrups a bit, so I have to put them back to the normal length in my feet.
5th. What do you mean when you say "Hes a bit behind the verticle on the first 2 pics". Can you please explain what you mean.
6th. And I don't understand what you mean when you say, "but very heavy on the forehand".

He is a good boy. And if you happened to ride him you would love him!
My last sentence is,
You just don't happen to understand!

I did ask the people to critique my horse not my riding.
And thank you that you took your time to do that, but I believe I'm just
Explaining to the person the reasons why he does certain things. I have ridden loads of horses in my past riding years. AND I do understand what your saying. It's just I get a bit mad because some people don't understand. But when I wrote what I wrote before I was mad. And I didn't read it again until now and It seems like I'm yelling. But when I wrote it I wasn't yelling.

Rachel i'm sorry but I have to agree with Kristy, I'm sure Wolli is a nice hors to ride and special to you he however looks behind the vertical and heavy. And when you said he's a thoroughbred so it's cool he can do all these things I know many tb's who can do all sorts of disciplines including dressage etc. When you said proffesional's horses put ther heads down they don't. They collect by using their hindquarters, lifting their backs and therefore carrying their head/neck in a rounded frame.
I'm not having a go at you or Wolli just some facts.

How old are you?

I guarantee that there are several members on this board that have ridden far more horses then you for far more years. Be mature, take their helpful advise and appreciate their time given. In the long run, it will be worth it. Those who are open minded and open to other people's advise with become better riders and trainers because of it. I promise.
