    Interesting... I love the very end... the thing that makes the rider smile... interesting extra letters. The long dangly stuff hanging off the sturrips was a little distracting, but I guess it's the appropriate attire.

    It looks like a combination of western equitation (transitions), a very light trail class (backing through obstacles), and light reining skills. Whatever. My old AQHA mare and I could have done that course with very little practice. In fact, any handy western mount should have all those skills. Our AQHA gelding would need a little more practice because my husband rides himnow, LOL! By the fall, I should have those skills with my Morgan mare because I am training her to be my cow horse now.

    I didn't really see anything that made me think 'dressage' except the numbers.

    ...many of which appeared to be brands.

    Interesting take on Western Dressage.

    Isn't there a new sport that really is western dressage? That looked more complicated. Too complicated for me, anyway.

    Wait, that video is cowboy dressage. Here is western dressage:


    http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=r...&v=OXS7i_fK7AQ

    THAT looks a lot harder and closer to regular dressage. It's neat way to interact with a horse, but I would just take dressage lessons myself. I did awhile back, actually, but not long enough to ever get out of walk/trot and a lot of circles, LOL!

    I think both cowboy and western could be fun for people who don't want to buy new tack. Anything to keep people riding and playing with their horses nicely.

    and that is part of the reason I think. Horse sports are starting to diversify, morph and finding new ways to enjoy horses. This is one.

    Nice! I wish my rope skills were better. I am my horse's biggest limitation around cattle.

    Default this looks like fun!

    !st off, I've seen dressage,helped another back her 2nd horse(when she asked me,I was wtf,me? She said "who else?")I like WATCHING-but that's not how I ride.1st off,I always rode QHs'.then I got to ride a TB-her owner hated her/3 wtrn trainers " & the girl wasn't doin' anything,but acting sullen.I rode her, after much,"I'm not gettin' on a crazy TB."Surprize superize-I thought it,she done it! I got my guys that can do all of the stuff that's being shown,and a little bit more-this would be 1 avenue for those that have taken TBS and show them in another light-just sayin'
