When I found out Kate Price does dressage I just HAD to to check it out. To be honest it really annoys me. She rode at HOYS at THIS level? It seems as though she's competing at a high level just because she brought a lovely educated horse because she can afford it. Apparently she likes dressage because "the horses look good"
Sure, its good publicity for the sport but urgh i'll just let the video speak for itself.
She literally pulls the horses head down and her balance is horrible, her hands move and her upper body is unstable. I have these problems too but im sure if I went out and brought a ridiculously expensive highly educated horse I wouldnt be allowed to ride in shows such as HOY. All because of her fame..
I've seen other videos and pictures too that really show how hard handed she is.
I'd have no problem with her doing dressage but she's just skipping ahead!
Anyway, sorry for the rant....
