Don't want to argue. Just curious.
Because WBs have been bred to excel at dressage, regardless of the tack. Read a rule book, talk to the officials sanctioned by WDAA, the tests are meant to be judged the same as a "normal" dressage test. If a horse with choppy movement and a horse with flowy movement put in the same test, the second horse will win. Same as in normal dressage.

But, when it comes to collection-reiners definitely would have that, and that was what MG was saying. I think there is probably more to a dressage test than just collection, just like there is more to a reining pattern than collection. BUT, you NEED collection to complete the maneuvers.
Exactly what I was attempting to say......

As for "getting personal", he is the one reporting about the problems he has with his horse, not in this thread, but in others. Therefore mentioning learning more and attending a clinic, by WHOEVER, might actually be helpful.
Then the place for that comment was in THAT thread. Not this one. That is what makes it an inappropriate personal jab.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

bsms - once again you are dismissing the fact that the dressage seat has changed over time - the seat we are familiar with is not the same as it was when the dressage concept began
Charles 1 of England (1600 - 1649) was a huge follower of the new dressage style of riding, Pluvinel the first French Riding Master of this new fashion lived 1555 - 1620
The more forward leg was still evident in the hunting field in the 1970's though by then dressage had long evolved into the leg position we see now it took a long time for this to become the norm
In 1773 when the spanish riding school was in full swing they rode with the forward leg style - this was dressage in its infancy - no different to the photos you are showing
The British and Irish came over here able to ride - it was essential to get around and herd farm animals, they bought their riding and draft horses with them, they led the move out west along with the Dutch and Germans who were also accomplished horse men - many of these people were responsible for training non riders for the military

That would be assuming the QH has the choppy movement......automatically.......or are you referring to movement as in big trot......which, IMO, shouldn't be a deciding factor in Western Dressage. Haven't read the WD rules, but sure hope this was taken into consideration. If not, WD doesn't make any sense at all. _
