    So you hold your horse up, huh?

    What does he do when you are not there to hold him up? Does he flip over while cantering through his pasture?

    well, not me. My idea of cross country for that poor horse is to walk a hill or two (engage back throughness) and find a grassy spot. Get off, loosen the chin strap, and find a spot to graze. See if the horse remembers how to be a horse. Same way home -- hills.

    I meant that tongue in cheek!
    I really wish SLC would explain what she meant by that! and why its not a problem with the training???

    I know Sannois... it's a sorry state of affairs. Who really considers a hack to be cross country anyway, but that poor horse was tortured enough. Can you imagine actually trying to do anything that required balance, it'd blow the horse's mind.

    No kidding! I wonder if the FEI has any idea how many people are so appalled by the ‘dressage’ training they see that they turn away from dressage in favor of other activities.

    I understand them. I've seen abusive training in all disciplines - notably the least in eventing - and the worst was in dressage. Sadly.

    You cannot really blame people for thinking dressage is evil, when 99% of what is seen is bad dressage. Yuk.

    But the fact is that in the most countries in Europe dressage is growing at very high rates. See the last reports of the Royal Dutch Equestrian Federation.

    Some snippets of this report : my translation

    Last year the active competition riders in the Netherland has grown with 16%.

    Dressage is by far the most populair discipline in the Netherlands.

    The last 5 years there were 33 million starts.

    80% of the dressage-riders are female.

    The average cost per year paid for their sport is Euro 600,= for non-horse owners
    2.700,= for horse owners

    81 % of the riders do also ride in the woods, greenfields or seaside.
