    Yes, I offered my very sound 18 year old I 1 schoolmaster to her, but he was too old!

    Yes Emily F, I failed to mention it needed to be a 7 mover. Not that your TB couldn't be that, but in my neck of the woods, that is a tall order for under 15K. I just meant to highlight the fact the...

    Interesting thread. I am an AA that has a full time job, husband and child. I switched to dressage on my event horse and got my bronze, silver, and half of my gold metal on him with me doing most of...

    I would send the horse if you have the means. Like you, I was an event rider who was proficient through First level. I sent my Prelim horse to a local dressage trainer to sell as he was maxed out at...

    Since my name here is 4WdNstraight guess what I'm good at? So what my trainer has said about bend is to give a little outside rein so they can get over to the inside. This really resonates with me...

    Diamo Gold

    Does anyone knows what he seems to throw, or what type of mare does he work best with?

    Do what Sascha recommended. Make sure when you make the turn on the diagonal that you are absolutely straight. It is easy to lose the outside shoulder which can ruin your changes.

    I think there is a bigger problem here with getting the FEI pony divisions off the ground. The atmosphere at most dressage shows is not kid friendly. If you go to an A rated hunter jumper show,...

    Yes, I've talked about the possibility of one student half leasing him, but she purposely has a small clientele, so no other possibilities. SuzieQ, I realized when I was typing before, that I don't...

    The mare is not dangerous anymore, but was as a youngster. She is the type that is very dominant. In the wrong hands she could easily become dangerous, which is why I fear for her soft landing. I can...
