That's actually what my trainer did, she started her on english basics and showmanship. She had been doing awesome!! I had a video of her where she was being taught to stand square, she learned in about 5 minutes. It really was awesome! My trainer actually lunged her without those rein things (haha don't know what they are called) and she held the same position, looking for the pressure on the bit.
It's sad that I never knew what she could have done. I have trouble with it because I waited til she was 4 to get her really going (I had ridden her VERY lightly at 2, so she was used to everything). Her knees had just closed that year and I was so excited, I knew she was going to be good at whatever she did. I was supposed to ride her about 3 days after she died. *sigh*
