I have seen how the horses depicted in the video are trained and that is NOT what dressage is all about. Many of these horses are performing piaffs but can't do a simple well ridden medium trot.

I boarded at a barn where the owner came from Spain and I can tell you I would NEVER train like what I saw.

As Spyder said, neat tricks, but not the essence of dressage - the horse is still very much on his forehand, which is against the very fundamentals of dressage training.

I am not a very big fan of dressage. And I think this is too much. It just doesn't look. . Natural, for the horse to be doing this. I don't like the look of it. But as for breed, I have to say, I don't think he's an Andy. I am thinking lusitano. Andalusian's tend to have a bit more mane, and are built a bit more thick.

RL, dressage is the essence of any good riding - getting the horse to move correctly under you. The horse in that video is mostly doing tricks.

That makes sense.

What about the horses you see doing the demonstrations of bull fighting or the sort of... obstacle courses. Someone help me out here. I think there is a horse called merlin or something? Usually spanish horses with a high degree of collection but not doing an actual dressage test.

I feel that they are applying dressage but now it seems that may not be true...?

Merlin is quite amazing. He really engages his hind, and (in my personal opinion) utilizes dressage under a western-type saddle in a practical-application-use setting.

Did that even make sense?!

I really hate that art, they stab the bull many times and after there done they kill the bull.

But it is amazing how the horse moves like that, almost playing tag
