    Dressage in Colorado?

    Hi All,

    There is a chance I could potentially be moving overseas in the next year and wanted to see what the dressage scene is like in and around Denver?
    Google has shown me that it is a...

    Hrmm.... I have ridden my whole life thanks to a horsey mother but not dressage. I was formerly an eventer. Dressage was that terror you had to go through for the "fun stuff" to start. I had a great...

    I went to Australia and trained intensively with the McLeans for 6 weeks - plus I have been a regular rider at clinics etc back home. The McLeans gave me clarity as to where I was and where I needed...

    Hmmm... I bought one of these a year ago. A year down the track and I have FINALLY got him to settle. Not only had he been "cranked and spanked" as I like to call it, but he has a really strong...

    PMSL! And he thinks the Europeans have it bad - try going to Kentucky from the middle of no where with VERY little financial backing!! :lol:

    The cold, hard fact for many of NZ's riders aiming for...

    I have had a similar problems to yourself, usually in Keiffers (absolutely loathe those saddles as a result).

    I agree with above posters. I find it can be the saddle and I also know that when I...

    I love half chaps and boots at home. Means I can walk around all day more comfortably than I could in tall boots. I do switch to riding in my tall boots about a week before a competition as they do...

    Yeah... but riders don't want to see them riding badly, and they certainly won't buy photos of themselves riding poorly. Particularly when those photos are available to all and sundry on the...

    I have a horse who is in 100% turnout, unless its winter in which case its half and half. I get on 1 hour before my start time. He gets 20mins of walking with lots of stop/go/turns with very little...

    I can't really compare to the Ariat Hunter, as I have the Ariat Challenge (no Zips), but I replaced them with Mountain Horse Classic High Rider Dress Boot and I wish I'd gone with the Ariats.

    I don't think there is a hard and fast rule, I think there is more a taught belief.

    IME a "lolling tongue" as opposed to a "licking" tongue will lose MINIMUM 1 mark per-movement and will lose...

    I'm a wee bit spesh (as is my horse) and won't feed pre-mixes ever again. Having almost had him go through career ending moments due to diet we had a specialist design his diet. I've gone right back...

    RIP NZB Gandalf

    Not sure if this has been mentioned on here yet but Mark Todd's 2008 Olympic mount NZB Gandalf has been humanely PTS following neurological issues :(

    My thoughts go out to Angela Lloyd who...

    I think it looks like a County to me. Similar to the style Jutta uses on Lessing.

    Though looking at the Hennig photos, it could be one of those too...

    I hate to throw a spanner in the works, but I think there are three books now?? I have "The truth about horses" and the "Horse training the McLean way" (the yellow book). I have both of these two,...

    OMG - that's exactly the same as my one. I've never seen another before and didn't think that they made them anymore.

    I don't care about fashions/fads. My horse looks damn good in black with...

    I don't think mine are the same as what you are asking about but I got these boots (link below) and overall I'm not that happy with them.
    They look reasonably good in the photos, but up close, they...

    So are you trying to say that only people in the US can have a say on Rollkur?? :lol::lol:

    Rollkur is not my cup of tea, but I have seen FAR FAR worse cases of so called "abuse" than Patrik...

    I too have a horse with tongue "issues." He likes to put his tongue out to one particlar side, particularly when he's working hard, or concentrating. I liken it to him sucking his thumb. He does it...

    Really interesting video to watch.

    Zipping up my flamesuit:

    Firstly: I really like that horse - if it wants to be gelded and come live at my place, it is more than welcome :lol:

    Spoken like somebody who has never ridden using the system, hasn't seen the system in action, or who has seen people who purport to use the system, but actually don't follow it properly. I'm...

    Wooooah! - easy tiger. Don't lump Andrew in with the Dutch training system. As a student of his I don't believe him to be a supporter of all things Dutch.
    He may have influenced them in the 1...
