It is nice to see the odd "not expected to be there" horse working well in dressage.I agree. But don't you think most people just want to have fun with their horses and aren't trying to make an Olympic team?
Better communication through dressage=better partnership= more fun
Sounds like a win/win for everyone.
Seldem Seen did it. My Quarab did it (at GP level) and this horse may do it also. It would be however, wrong to think that now every horse from the "off breeds" to be able to excell.
Personally the ones that do excell in what they are not bred for are usually atypical for their breed.
Each horse must be evaluated as a seperate individual.
