    Little advice?

    I'm currently a working student learning dressage. I'm wanting to know if it's best for me to stay in one place for a few years, or if it's best to see a couple of barns and different styles over the next few years?

    I guess it depends on the place, sometimes its good to try a few different things, but if you're always moving around you won't be able to develop a strong relationship with the stable and you may not get the most out of it. If you have a really good stable with good conditions, a range of horses and instructors and you still have more to learn, then that could be better.

    I don't know though.

    Stay at your original barn unless there's a problem.

    Thing about dressage is that everyone is an expert in the discipline, and knows the correct way...but everyone does it differently. Doesn't make sense, right?

    Learn from who you trust. When you have a solid foundation, then you can look around.

    I learned from a grand prix rider for two years. I then had the chance to take a dressage lesson from someone not so accomplished. It was a waste of my time and frustrated my horse to no end. Dressage shouldn't be that frustrating and irritating to a horse. I went back to the previous way of riding dressage. It made more sense and my horse understood it.
