Quarter Horse for Dressage

5600 Views 24 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  Jane Savoie
There's a horse in my barn who has taken every one of his riders to State 4-h fair and placed in top 10. He does English and Western but he has this HUGE stride that is perfect for a posting trot. I am think of leasing him and I was wondering what you guys thing about that. He is a Quarter Horse and very well behaved but I don't think he has ever done dressage but I think he would be perfect. Can ya'll give me your opions? I don't plan on doing higher than maybe level one with him. Thanks!

Hopefully, I'll find some pictures of him and post them on here.

I have a QH that I usually event, but this year we're just doing dressage.

The other posters are right; we struggle with an uphill canter and forwardness. But by far the biggest issue is getting a nice, swinging free walk.

But these are all things the are fixed with schooling. I'm sure he'd be great for training level, maybe first level with practice :)
