My Dressage Experience
Learning dressage can be difficult,
Especially when training with different horses.
Eddie ‘Whoopee Cushion’ maintains speed all the way through,
While Angus ‘Cow Horse’ moos.
Scooby ‘Snail’ fails to obey,
And Joey ‘Giant’ delays going into canter.
Although all horses are different,
I still manage to score over sixty per cent.
Even if horses don’t obey,
I got to keep trying to keep my score high.
If I don’t keep trying and let the horse take control,
I will lose marks and have no hope of winning.
When I halt the horse and salute,
I know it is the end of the test and hope for a good score.
