I love it too

Dressage is an art and a science. The training of horse and rider develops a partnership between them that brings a lot of satisfaction, joy and beauty. At the same time, the journey is a lot of hard work and sweat equity!

Dressage tests are just that; a test of the rider's progress with the horse. The tests are one of the few where the horse and rider are judged individually and together on their individual progress. One advances up the levels of the training scale, similar to the way one advances through school.

Dressage defined is "training" and the goal is to improve upon the horse's innate ability and enable the horse to carry a rider effectively.

It can mean anything you want it to. To me, it's the hours put into training, the bong formed with your horse, and the gorgeous displays of beauty you and horse horse can show-as a team. I know it's weird, but I just like hearing people's opinions on various topics.

(I attempted to reply to someone but I'm new and I don't know if I did it right, so sorry if this looks strange)

That is a different sort of partnership.
