Thanks! JustSam, You guys all got the wrong impression on me. I just like to stand by my friends that's all. I greatly take in any and all advice given to me! She really is a great mare and I had a blast with her this summer. She's fun to have fun on. I took her swimming almost everyday this summer and would dive off her back but I need a horse that is "serious." Sure I could throw her in a pair of draw reins get a frame and call that dressage but I'm not like that. I'm all about true collection and really engaging the hind end because that ideally is the key factor in collection. I'm not like that though I won't do something unless I do it right. I've really worked with her on using her hind end and really reaching under herself but she's just not built for that strenious performance work. Sure people ride dressage and show it with drafts but I want something with better momevent and something more uphill. Something that can hold up to the performance work I ask of it. That's the last thing I want is to have Gracie not sound because I pushed her to do something she's not made to do.
