    Lol! I probably won't.
    I need a ton of memberships and the shows are stupid expensive anyways.
    Just schooling for me!

    That was wonderful! I also watched your Jan 11 video on youtube as this video wasn't playing on the forum for me.. Your position is superb! I see a lot of good dressage riders who ride effectively and can sit the trot effectively but their upper body is never quite that tidy. A tidy upper body is always a pleasure to see and the icing on the cake for such a lovely pair. I'm kinda hoping Rowen just has a very easy to sit trot so I don't feel as sloppy. :o)

    Sorry to burst your bubble, lol. His trot is like riding a jackhammer and whilst sitting it I have sweat in places and amounts I was unaware were humanly possible.
    I can literally sit on any horse now though!

    Thanks!

    Love his canter! I am hoping to start jumping soon (I wanted to a long time ago) but my mare (and OTTB) forced me into riding dressage for 3 years. I don't regret it at all! In my opinion, every jumping horse/rider should have lots of dressage experience!

    WOW! You two are AMAZING together!

    One thing I never get, is when people are always complaining about how "boring" dressage is, but in actual fact, dressage is the base of show jumping. Without it, you can't expect much.

    I must admit, when I first started riding, I used to think how boring it was to watch people doing dressage, but it is actually quite nice once you get into it, and you can get alot of pleasure from it.

    Well done again! If you ever do decide to take the path down jumping avenue, you would never go wrong.
