I still like the concept of dressage, but the training and requirements could be a bit less for olympic level.

If you love something, set it free
If it comes back it's yours
If it doesn't, it never was

You know, for a long time I really really didn't like Dressage. Almost all the big shot riders are really terrible IMO and local Dressage riders treat their horses like some sort of machine.

I realize it is not the sport of Dressage though. Now, I am really reading into it and am probably going to take my first Dressage lesson this weekend. I just think its a shame that abusive riders reach such high levels. Not only in Dressage but in WP, Halter, everything. I don't think they should be rewarded for such poor behavior...

Not that there any excuses at all for what she was doing, but does anyone know what she was saying? I'm curious.

There are no words to describe who angry that makes me or what I would like to do to that trainer!
