yes but I've heard its just very difficult where you must have tight leg muscles, posture, and of course being able to give movements with nearly being invisable. Then I was told I should learn basic english before learning something as a challenging as dressage.....are they right?
Dressage is not that difficult! It is fun if you like to challenge yourself. Tight leg muscles are for jumpers not Dressage, someone is telling you wrong...you must be relaxed and sitting quietly...
It is great training for the seat because it puts you in correct balance. This helps you to be secure & in control. You must be ok doing circles though, because you will do a lot of circles!
The first time I went to my current instructor I almost collapsed at the end of the 45 minute lesson, we worked so hard! But it did not take long to adjust & the improvement was awsome!!!
So far as invisable movements go, it is easy...just remember that a horse can feel a fly, and you want to give the lightest touch needed to get a response. I barely touch, then if the horse does not respond immediately, I pop them or kick once hard. The horse quickly learns to listen the first time, and then you can feel like he is almost reading you mind...
It is awsome & beautiful
