So what exactly is dressage? I am new to English and I was told I should show my horse. And I guess she meant dressage, because we don't jump.
This might sound stupid lol, but thanks for the help.
Dressage is basically (correct) flat work. :-) You can show dressage, BUT you have to train your horse and yourself to be able to do so. The best way to go would be taking lessons from the dressage trainer (and if the trainer is also a judge that's super).
Also if you want to take Dressage lessons it's also nice to have someone that has gotten someone to the FEI levels of Dressage. That's always nice too! :D
You can show your horse in hunter flat or pleasure classes even if you don't jump. From your avatar photo, it looks like you're riding hunt seat, so that would be the obvious choice.
Even showing at the lowest levels (Intro or Training Level in the US) or dressage requires a higher level of skill and more schooling and preparation than showing Hunter Under Saddle.
Might be easiest simply to ask your instructor, or whoever encouraged you to show, what they meant.
