Fit for dressage
Well I posted in the general riding forum about how I'm kinda stalled as far as what my next adventure in horses shall be. Some people mentioned dressage. That is one of the very very very few disciplines they offer lessons for here. Now I took some beginner dressage lessons YEARS ago and have used basic dressage techniques in my training for barrel racing, etc. but haven't focused purely on dressage really. I firmly believe that everyone has different personality traits that make them like one discipline over another (and I seem to like everything....) but looking closely at myself, I like brain teasers. I never turn down the opportunity to take those random IQ quizzes or play strategy games (and usually do really well!) I also like having a goal to work towards, or else I get bored. I'm also a shameless ham. I absolutely LOVE to be in front of people! Riding, playing my violin, speaking, doing anything I'm good at. I LOVE it. No horse show anxiety here! It's more like "Ok, I'm here, WATCH ME DO THINGS!" For example we had a Christmas performance at my old barn, where there were a bunch of teams that would make up a pattern to Christmas music (a freestyle, of sorts) and dress up and all that. I loved it and had the entire 4 ish minute routine memorized in one lesson. Soooo, I guess my question is, based on what I've mentioned so far, do you think dressage (as my main discipline, not just to help my other ones) would be a good fit for me?
