I have never taken dressage lesson, at one time I felt it was for stuffed shirts, now I enjoy watching dressage especially the uper levels, the lipizzaners for for example. The training and communication between horse and rider is fun for me to see.
The other reason I had a less then good opinion of dressage is the lower levels are a little on the...slow or boring side.
Lastly some of
the people I
have known were a "little" on the snobby or "if you don't ride dressage you don't really ride" side of things.
I would enjoy taking dressage lessons I just don't have access to the possibility or time to take lessons. A cowboy dressage rider there are not enough of those in the world for sure.
