This one wandered into a discussion of the extended trot because of the numerous high scoring GP horses we had at the time who were relatively weak at that movement.

    I didn't know what 'canoeing' was!

    For me it has been nice to know others have had a problem I had with a horse or rider. The kind of stuff you can't read in books. The kind of things that don't always resolve with a "classical" approach.

    It has also been interesting to see how much others have accomplished while not having access to "all that". That is really nice!

    1. Confirmed for me that one cannot learn dressage by reading, one must be *on* a horse, preferably with educated eyes on the ground helping with accurate advice. (Correllary: most of us should ride 10x more than we type. Too bad work gets in the way.)

    2. Grammar is highly under-rated. If we treat our riding aids as casually, it's no wonder there is such difficulty communicating effectively with horses.

    3. How very intelligent and very funny many CoTH posters are.

    And Totilas...

    As I recall Rusty had good extensions. So many don't have the suspension and overtrack a good extension is supposed to have.

    At least 10 years ago, I was having trouble in counter canter with my Andalusian. He would try to swap if I made even a single move, or even breathed. Someone named Suzy told me to counterflex him in true canter and countercanter, so he didn't anticipate so much. Great advice!
