Dressage Lessons for Young Horses

A Big Congratulations- to Candice and her 5yo Canadian Warmblood mare Epic… they got out this summer with a great foundation to their jumping!  epic ribbons

One comment @ hunters > was that the mare was too collected.  At any show- understand that the judges can’t imagine what mountains you have climbed, rivers you swam uphill… to get to this point.  When Epic came for 8 weeks dressage training, she was rearing, refused to do the simplest work in hand, refusing contact with the bit, period.   We wish Candice and Epic many more well-collected rides. There should be an award for that!    There is no secret kept closer, than one between horse and rider.
