    I am having this exact same problem.
    I also have a Passier GG that fits my high-withered, super short-backed TB cross. I can't believe you've found a Collegiate to fit - I would never have guessed...

    I am sick to my stomach reading this thread. It continues to disgust me that there is so much money in the horse world that horses are treated like robots rather than living things.
    But we see it...

    The two positions are COMPLETELY different so it's no wonder you (like all of us) struggle with it! I also rode H/J for a long time before also starting dressage (now I event). I got lessons for a...

    I call my horse primarily a dressage horse (2nd/3rd) but we jump and event too.
    So weekly hacking. Weekly jumping. And I also do bridleless and I love to clicker train with him. I find clicker...

    That's great. There is no reason why a TB should not be able to compete at that level (and much higher) if trained correctly. Unfortunately most of the emphasis these days in the dressage world is on...

    The haunches should never be moved to straighten the horse, anyway. We straighten the horse with the front legs and the hind legs follow. Horses do not think with their haunches - hind legs are...

    PS: Bad rides TOTALLY affect me. I beat myself up like crazy after having a bad ride and get very depressed. If I am in a longer term funk with my horse it really bothers me. A few months ago I went...

    I go though funks as well.
    Although mine do not spring from a lack of confidence but more the opposite: I am such a perfectionist that sometimes I latch onto something that I want to fix and drill...

    But again, this wouldn't be an issue specifically with the dressage. If the horse is amped up by the sight up jumps it should be amped up in the warm up for the jumping phases, the warm up for the...

    I am surprised there aren't more posters suggesting that it is a RIDER problem - not a horse problem.
    The horse has no idea what a "shadbelly" is or what braids are or what a dressage arena is for...

    I didn't suggest that your reins be loose and floppy. But the horse shouldn't be dropping behind the contact in the first place - that itself is a huge issue.

    It sounded from your original post...

    I do not believe in "riding forward into the hand" and evidently neither does your mare. If you drive from the back, block from the front, that only leaves UP for your horse and that's exactly what...

    When I walk a course I stop every few jumps and re-play the course in my mind. I even talk my way through it.
    I like to visualize everything. And the night before I usually lie there visualizing...

    Honestly, I'm not usually a Stubben fan but I found an old Stubben Imperator for my super short-backed high-withered TB/Dutch. The saddle is nearly 50 years old and the leather is AMAZING. I was...

    Yes, sorry, I should have pointed that out. My guess, however, is that many people DON'T use them properly and do not only use them to lunge. I like to stay clear of ALL gadgetry if possible.

    The reason she is "round" in the elevator bit is because of the leverage.
    The reason she is not "round" in a regular snaffle is because clearly she does not actually understand contact (and you are...

    He is not even remotely tracking up in the photos you showed. Although it's true his walk in the video is a pretty good walk.

    As others have said, he is just diving down with his nose and yanking...

    I like the idea of putting poles out to do randomly through my ride.
    I rode him today with two other horses in the arena and he was much better. I guess because there was a bit more stimulation.

    Spooking out of boredom

    Anyone have a horse who gets bored easily and becomes spooky?

    I have my coming 7 y/o boarded at an indoor arena for the winter. He has been there since November. In January he started to get...

    I started trail riding my 6 y/o last summer when I was a WS at an event barn. Me and the trainer always took our horses out at least once a week at a state park.
    The first time we decided to split...

    My guy approached jumps (and jumped them) crooked when he was greener. It was, as many other people have already mentioned, a straightness issue. He would do it particularly on a downhill (even a...

    I mostly show alone so it's no problem. This summer, though, I was a working student so I went to shows with two other horses. My guy was 6 and doing his first ever competing/traveling. He does have...

    I've seen people lunge over smaller XC jumps (and I took my guy out in the beginning in-hand and put him over some small logs and things) but I've never seen it at this level. It...
