MVP, that's one of the points of introducing dressage principles. Move away from just teaching a skill over and over and move to a progressive training and conditioning program that doesn't ignore the skills but recognizes preparation with OTHER exercises and a whole body program will be in the better interests of the horse. It like moving from just playing tennis to adding weight lifting, running and yoga to the program to improve your tennis game. The horse still has to learn the skills and practice them. There's no substitute for that. But recognize that the overall strength of the horse needs to be developed in a structured way. So western dressage.
