    I already had my glass of wine after spending my day riding at the barn. ;)

    But no worries, I really see no points in having a discussion with people who don't know what they are talking about.

    May I suggest you to read the definition of the extended walk in the FEI dressage rules.

    According to that chart, these top 5 riders (who rode more than their share of GP tests) would disagree with you since they all get about the same scores for the extended walk... their worst scores. ...

    I don't know for the US but in Canada, I was glad to learn my mare and I would get each a real silver medal! :D

    They should think twice.

    Sorry but those several people just don't understand how difficult dressage is and what goes on at shows. And the walk is the most difficult gait.

    Because it's hard.

    It has nothing to do with upper level riders having issues on how to achieve a good collected/extended walk, don't worry, I'm sure they're pretty good at it.

    But the...

    If it was that easy, we'll all be just reading books. Riding doesn't work that way. Lessons with a real person, explaining you stuff before/during/after your ride is just much more valuable than any...

    Raise the bit, raise the noseband and adjust both the flash and the noseband tight enough that it doesn't move.

    NOT like this : see how the bit and the noseband aren't adjusted high enough? So...

    Surely not worth it.

    This is all basics stuff you should learn from a real (meaning in real life) professional. Not that what this trainer is saying is wrong, bad or inadequate but because your...

    Just thought about it a friend of mine had her saddle (unknown brand) modified by a County fitter. The knee pad/flap was removed completely and changed to a "made-to-measure" County full lenght...

    Crotchty is right, County saddles cannot be widened...

    Bringing back to shape a horse of that age that has never been in training before will be difficult, and will take a long time.

    First, I would seriously look at what you are feeding. NO more sugar (carrots, apples, cookies, mints, etc not even one of those) Spring and automn grass is a big NO when the horse is in training....
