I have not been in a show ring since I was 17 yrs old.. umm.. something like 20+ years. I've NEVER competed in Dressage. I was a Western Pleasure and Horsemanship kinda girl.
I was still kinda on the fence about it until my ride on Rosie this past weekend. As soon as all my pieces fit, she went naturally round, and the more I sat back on my seat bones the more forward she went. Tighten my core and seat muscles and she stops. Light squeeze of the legs she moves forward, turn my body the direction I want to to turn and she turns. No fighting, no arguing, no talking back like Bonnie gives me.
So... this evening I've decided that I am going to compete again. This time in Dressage. I've got a long way to go, but I'm going to pick a show in late fall that has level 1 walk/trot and start with that.
Wish Us Luck !!!!!
