Anebel you know very well I respect good dressage highly, I've ridden it myself, (Not my cup of tea and nothing serious but we did fairly well) but for Christ's sake, you have to admit some of that is out there.
Maybe for you guys where you have good riders and good shows it wouldn't be considered lovely, but you haven't seen my area. My area actually disturbs me. I went to watch a dressage show and actually had to turn around and leave before I saw any of the good riders. Since then I've found a few. I never said the entirety of the dressage discipline is like that, just like not all reining is. It was to make a point, not a stab.
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
