Type of Ride Work
Although I've ridden for years, my exposure to dressage is relatively more recent. I am honestly and with humility admitting my dressage riding skill is around training level. Still learning "feel", keeping in front of the leg, straightness, and developing an independent seat and legs. Some experience popping over small cross-rails, but it has been a long while. Enjoy hacking/trail riding, and not adverse to gaining jumping skills. At some point I'll learn more about driving.
Almost none. Rode over cross-rails at a small schooling show.
