    Earlier I said I thought the dressage horse was better trained, but I watched the video again and this is what I have to say:

    I don't think one is trained better, or one man rides better. Neither is better. They're just different.

    Also, Kevin... I don't understand what you mean by "overspun" ... I've seen horses spin WAY faster than that, and that's exactly what they wanted ...

    If you think of the horse standing on a clock they ride in on the six o'clock and start the spin they should end up at either six o'clock or twelve o'clock but they shouldn't stop at 5:30 or 6:45. That's what I meant by over and underspun. In a reining contest the exhibitor is asked to turn 2 times or 2 and a half if they stop over or under that is a deduction.

    I agree with this! Because is is in Europe, I am sure the "western" rider was trained Dressage rider first, but he had a difficult time sitting the big trot of the Dressage horse.

    The Dressage rider tried little cues without a response, then had to use bigger aids until the horse would respond. I doubt the Dressage rider has trained western.

    The western horse is definitely more green than the Dressage horse, just based on the performance. It take a lot of years to reach that level

    Still, overall a very interesting video, thanks for sharing!

    I am another you would call "irrational"

    But then the western bored me, Dressage is a bigger trot, bigger horse, bigger challenge

    OH okay, I knew that much, I just misinterpreted what you said. I was thinking you meant in terms of speed Over here we call it "hitting" and "missing" ... I went to a reining facility and that's what they called it there, anyway. Thanks for clarifying

    *joins the irrational posse*

    Although, I grew up riding Western and then developed an interest in English, but I will always love and ride both - my goal for Jynx is to have an eventer and barrel racer in one.

    Count me in the irrational group as well!

    I have zero desire to ride Western, just wasn't something I really enjoyed.
