First off, I just want to thank anyone who gives an answer. There is no wrong answer. Also, Dressage people, this is NOT to start an argument or conversation so please please please do not try to correct anybody, or prove what they say is wrong. There is a reason to this madness, I promise.
All non-Dressage people. Tell me your honest thoughts about what Dressage is, what you don't like about it, why you don't do it, etc. I need to know how non-Dressage people think of dressage. Be Honest.
For example, here are the thoughts I had on dressage before I started learning Dressage or going to a Dressage trainer
The people are snobs
You have to have a specially bred horse, or certain breed (Lipazon, etc)
I heard that Dressage people are cruel to their horses to make them do that
It's too complicated to learn
Remember, please be honest, and please please don't argue with the opinions here...it's for a report and when I am done I will put in my report so you all will know that there is meaning to this whole thread. If this becomes a hot thread and people start bashing other people's opinions, I will sadly request that a mod remove it because this is not about bashing...and if this happens my report that I need to get done will take longer and I will need to get my answers another way.
