Believe me, Anebel-noone is trying to make you jealous at all, I have no desire to have a dressage horse. I will, however, continue to see the benefits of keeping my mind open to other disciplines to take TOOLS from what they use to better my horse in my discipline. I have no illusions that what I do is rocket science or exclusive of all else.
BTW-how about at least picking a GOOD example of a reiner......they do not typically go around with their "mouths gaping" any more than a dressage horse goes around in a rollkeur. PLEASE.
And with regard to the traverse I was referring to-the entire horse, in a straight line head to tail, moving diagonally across the ring at a lope.I said NOTHING about winging the butt around. Not sure where you got that.
