Nice to see a forum for the discussion of this discipline.

There are a few here that specialize a little more in dressage so this is a good thing.

Yay!! I already made a thread <3 i've been wanting to make it for a while, but i felt bad putting it in the English Riding forum.

I am Dressage through and through. Not for the fanciness, but for the deep level of communication and team work that horse and rider have. The subtlety of the cues, the quiet hands and legs, the level of complete fitness the horse has to be in to execute the higer level moves. LOVE IT!

Whenever I green break horses, I always put a little Dressage in them. As far as i am concerned, Dressage is the best way to get good Horsemanship skills on a horse's back (omg i made an opinion on something and i may get slayed for it!). I have always found myself teaching every horse i break to do shoulder in/out, leg yield, and all that jazz.

Im glad to see this forum! =)

I am a hunter/jumper, but I do like dressage. :D I do some dressage in my lessons, it is very helpful!! :) It is also fun to watch. Last week, in my lessons we did musical dressage (just for fun)-it was so cool to see how some horses look in different music!

If you don't like dressage it's because you don't understand it.

Yes I like dressage.
