    Could that have been any more perfect? Ha ha.
    Seriously, looks SO good, but it's definitely what I expected from you two.

    I seriously love his canter. He's so balanced. Dressage really does play an important part in jumping and this video really shows that. Rowan is just too cool.

    Wonderful work! Dressage plays a huge part in the strengths and fitness of both horse and rider, yet so many people ignore it. Good on you, and I'm sure Rowan loves the variation, too! ~

    Oh my gosh, I want to pull my hair out when I watch people ride today, riders who have 0 - little amount of Dressage under their belts, and they think they look good and are doing good.

    It is very refreshing to see a horse jump, how they are supposed to do the job. Light, rounded, soft, on their hind ends, soft and smooth.

    Why, WHY can't people see how important dressage is, to be successful at jumping? For the horses sake!

    I go to my barn that is a Hunter/Jumper barn, very large and very involved with the LMHJA, and not 1 horse looks like that - because - they don't do dressage.
    All they do, is get on, do some "flatwork" incorrectly *horses never lift backs, round, soften, track up and riders have no clue how to use their bodies because all they do is ride on their crotches with upper bodies forward* and then jump, jump, jump and ..oh yeah, that's right - jump some more.

    They ride with gadgets on, German Martingales, Standing Martingales and blah blah blah.

    I would LOVE the Eventers and Jumpers on this forum - to watch this video and learn!

    You both look fabulous, and you are living proof of how important dressage is for jumping. Afterall - jumping is dressage with speed bumps.

    If GP Jumpers spend 5-6 days a week doing dressage because of this very reason - then so should we!

    Totally agree with MIE here. Your posistion is excellent, I can't believe you haven't jumped in four years but then again because you put so much hard work into your dressage you still have an excellent jumping posistion. I love your horses canter and he is stunning! If all of us rode the way you did we wouldn't need the forum, apart from to boast about how wonderful we all are. So overall excellent job and you two are going to be wonderful jumpers together, perfect team.

    Anebel! My goodness! What a beautiful horse, a wonderful rider, and an overall excellent jump! You've opened my eyes to what dressage can do for a horse/rider team, and I think I'll be plunging myself whole-heartedly into dressage now! :) Thank you so much for sharing with us!
