    I'll save everyone the time and effort: It's wrong. It's not classic. It's too classic. The tack doesn't match. It's too baroque. Only WBs can do dressage. That's not dressage. Haute Ecole is only circus tricks. Neither man nor horse were channeling the old dead guys. My horse does it better. It's not submissive enough. It's too submissive, that's abuse.

    Misty Blue-for shame! How can you be so stuffy!!!!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Hardly. It's clearly pesade. I guess he (both the OP and the person who lableled the photo) doesn't know what he's looking at. "Levade Perfection."
