I'll try it some day, it does look a good exercise if nothing else! and a bonding between horse & rider too.

Couldn't resist this part of the board as I used to be a riding instructor in the UK! Basic dressage is a must for all riders in my view. Doesn't matter what discipline you are into, an obedient and well trained (not fancy!) horse is a total asset. Lateral work is the basis of dressage and leg-changes are a must if you're going to be eventing or show-jumping. I was devastated when I arrived in NZ to find that even instructors here felt that dressage was very much the Cinderella part of riding. I think things are changing now and good sense is prevailing.
Looking effortless is all part of the magic raddaughter! Looking effortless on the side facing the judge is the trick though! Good luck in your efforts, I know it will be worth all your trouble!
All the best,
