    Absolutely time for a new picture of your future dressage horse. Gotta be dressage,
    otherwise all that chrome would be wasted.

    You are on the right track. Your horse can only go as well as you ride her. Riding is not a passive sport for laid back wimps.

    This is a starting-out horse, and is most likely in no way ready for the so called "dressage frame", which again should come from behind, not the hand.

    If he has no issues with stopping and turning, went well in the double snaffle, I'm assuming you mean a double jointed snaffle which is very soft, why would you switch him to a stronger bit?

    It is almost a given that horses are less forward in an arena even if it's outdoor.

    It's always a great way to loosen up before and cool down after. Make sire though that your horse understands leg yields and will do so promptly. It's very important for side of the road riding.
